New Jenn-Air refrigerator features luxe black interior
Jenn-Air has released three new refrigerators — which go by the name of Obsidian — featuring an unusual black interior
"Black lends a very flattering and sophisticated look to this collection and gives everything within the refrigerator more prominence and visual pop," notes Juliet Johnson, manager of brand experience for Jenn-Air. "The dramatic interior shade extends the elegant design of our products from outside to inside the appliance, and puts food on display in an impressive, pristine way."
The Obsidian collection includes a 36" Built-In 2-Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator/Freezer model, along with 36" and 42" Fully-Integrated French Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator/Freezer models.
All three models are panel ready and include an articulated hinge for a flush appearance. They also come with the option for stainless steel doors in a Euro-Style and commercial-like Pro-Style.
Other features include multi-point LED lighting throughout the cabinet, soft-close drawers and a TwinFresh climate control system that uses dual evaporators.
Jenn-Air will be replacing a total of 50 new SKUs in 2014. The new refrigerators are slated to hit shelves this October.

Genius Gun launches expanding polyurethane foam product
Manassas, Va.-based sealants, foams and adhesives manufacturer Soudal USA is introducing the new Genius Gun, an expanding polyurethane foam product for filling gaps and insulation.
According to the company, the Genius Gun is a bit of a game-changer because its foam can be reused multiple times and eliminates the need for a separate applicator. A patented trigger mechanism provides precise dosage and easy, one-hand operation.
“Our unique Genius Gun product has already proven to be exceptionally popular with professional tradespeople in several of our international markets, and we’re excited to introduce it in the United States,” said Geert Paepen, general manager with Soudal USA.
The foam has high form stability and can adhere to just about any building material, including brick, concrete, insulation materials, pipes, cables, ducts, wood, metals and most plastics. It resists temperatures between minus 40 degrees and 194 degrees Fahrenheit.
Once opened, the canister can be re-used until empty and stored for up to six weeks.
The Genius Gun is designed for construction, remodeling, electrical and plumbing installations, and thermal and sound insulation.
