Newport Brass reveals four new widespread faucet collections
Newport Brass has rolled out a new Newport 365 series, answering to dealer demand for thoughtful manufacturing in a budget-friendly package.
Within the Newport 365 offering, there are four new lavatory faucet collections: Fairlynn, Rydder, Bronwen and Prezlee.
“We are truly proud to introduce our new Newport 365 series, which offers design, quality and performance at a great value” said David Emmons, marketing director for Brasstech, Inc., parent company of Newport Brass. “Like all Newport Brass products, these new faucets will provide homeowners and designers confidence they have selected a top quality product, with exceptional functionality – along with our outstanding commitment to high manufacturing and finishing standards.”
The Fairlynn widespread faucet features a Victorian-era spout ideal for a more traditional bath environment. Evoking classic ideals and forms, the long, gently curved spout is accented by traditionally curved and detailed lever handles.
The Rydder widespread faucet is a transitional design with an architectural, square base that curves gently to both handles and faucet.
The Bronwen widespread lavatory faucet features a contemporary aesthetic with strong edges that complement the spout’s smooth contours.
The Prezlee widespread faucet offers architectural style with geometric elements and a crisp squared profile.
MoistureShield introduces two new decking collections
MoistureShield is adding to its family of composite decking products to include co-extruded and enhanced capped boards, featuring MoistureShield’s signature moisture-resistant composite core.
"We've spent years gathering trade and consumer insight to design a breakthrough in product offerings," said Brent Gwatney, senior VP sales and marketing for MoistureShield. "These new decking lines will help our trade customers reach the broad audience of homeowners by offering attractive and durable decking solutions for every personal preference."
MoistureShield Refine adds a layer of protection to the moisture-resistant core, featuring enriched natural coloring and enhanced durability to hide wear and tear, along with fade and stain resistance.
Each Refine board provides an advanced blend of enriched natural variegation and high definition wood-grain detail.
MoistureShield Infuse features MoistureShield’s innovative CoolDeck technology, which optimizes heat reflection to absorb 35% less heat than conventional capped composites in similar colors.
Additionally, a Co-X manufacturing process adds to the realistic wood-grain finish and enriched color variegation.
Both MoistureShield Refine and MoistureShield Infuse will be available in 1 in. x 6 in. (nominal) deck boards of 12 ft., 16 ft. and 20 ft. lengths and 12 ft. fascia boards.
Nest has a new outdoor camera
New from Nest is the Nest Cam Outdoor, plus a couple new updates to its range of smart home products.
“Nest is completely reimagining the camera experience with new hardware, a redesigned app, and more intelligent alerts. And because Nest is constantly improving its products, current Nest Cam Indoor and Dropcam customers will also benefit from these new features,” said Maxime Veron, director of hardware product marketing, Nest. “Nest Cam provides customers with peace of mind and the ability to stay connected to the things they care most about. Now, Nest Cam Outdoor brings thoughtful security outside of customers’ homes, helping them secure their property and giving them more ways to watch over their families, even when they’re miles away.”
Nest Cam Outdoor is made to withstand weather, but brings the security features of Nest outside. Customers can keep an eye on their homes 24/7 with full high-definition (1080p) video quality anytime, anywhere and in any weather. It comes with many of the same features as Nest Cam Indoor, such as activity alerts and Talk and Listen.
Additionally, subscribers to the Nest Aware service will now be able to receive person alerts. In other words, Nest Cam can tell when it's looking at a person, and it will let you know when someone comes into view. Nest Aware features including person alerts are available on all Nest Cam and Dropcam cameras.
Finally, a redesigned Nest app offers new software features, such as Spaces, a brand new user interface that groups Nest products by room, across multiple platforms, making it easier to access and control Nest products.
