Water and sewer pipe
Centrifugally cast, fiberglass-reinforced, polymer mortar is suitable for virtually every installation method for new construction and rehab, and accelerated aging tests project its service life to be more than 100 years. Leak-free, push-together joints reduce installation time and costs. Pressure and gravity pipe diameters range from 18 to 110 in. Hobas Pipe USA. Booth 1510. www.hobaspipe.com.
Super-large tension-membrane buildings
Accommodating a 12-ft. overhead door is no problem with the Gemini series tall side-wall buildings, which provide clear-span widths of 70 to 140 ft. in 10-ft. increments available to any length. The engineered deep truss construction eliminates the need for support poles or posts and the buildings' fabric-membrane allows natural light inside the building. Cover-All Building Systems.

Chemical-free road flares
“The only practical way to destroy one would be torepeatedly pummel it with a hammer or shoot it,” says Sgt. Steve Merchant of the Ripon (Wis.) Police Department of the military-grade PowerFlare electronic beacon. Even after officers submerged it in water and drove a fully equipped Ford Crown Vic over it several times, it kept signaling. It's visible to 3,000 ft. on the road or water, 10 miles from air (night), and 1,000 ft. (day). Battery-powered units run up to 150 hours; rechargeable units up to 100 hours, and automatically activate when removed from the charger. Complies with U.S. DOT (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) 49 CFR §§ 392.25 & 393.95(g) and MUTCD Type A (flashing) and Type C (solid on). Bowhead Environmental & Safety.
