CRL’s New Dolly Covers All Terrain 
Los Angeles-based C.R. Laurence Co. Inc. (CRL) is introducing a new all-terrain dolly for glass handling. Made of heavy, welded aluminum, the Cat. No. ATD1 dolly eases the task of moving large glass lites, insulating units, patio door panels and more across any jobsite terrain. 

The dolly’s 16-inch diameter, 2-ply pneumatic tire can cross curbs, doorsills and scrap lumber and won’t bog down in the grass, sand, mud or even snowy or icy terrain. The dolly features a built-in 8-inch Wood’s vacuum cup and a set of CRL RB200 rolling blocks that protect the cargo’s edges once unloaded. The roller blocks are stored conveniently inside the dolly’s frame. The maximum carrying capacity is 400 pounds.

Bromer’s Pole Systems Install Fast
Bromer Inc. in Terrebonne, Quebec, says its patented pole system is quick to install, and securely holds the glass on the rack and whatever is on the ledge board. 

The company uses full-length rubber padding on vertical and horizontal support on its racks. Most importantly, its patented pole system does not exceed the required 102-inch width permitted on the road, unlike, Bromer representatives say, some hold-type pole systems when used on a double-side rack for pick-up trucks or vans.

Myglasstruck.com Introduces Two New Glass Holding Poles
Myglasstruck.com, based in Glassboro, N.J., has released the T6-Adust-A-Pole and the T6-Super-Pole, two new poles for use with glass delivery racks. Both poles feature adjustable cleats, an integrated “T-channel” running the length of two sides of each pole and are made from a 1.5- by 1.5-inch 6061 T6 aluminum extrusions. 

According to the company, these three features create stronger-than-typical poles by increasing structural integrity and adding resistance to bending. Both models come with a one-piece stainless steel hook at the top, and tongue at the bottom attached with removable stainless steel fasteners. Each pole is available in standard lengths from 72 to 144 inches.

Ultra-Vision Keeps the View Clear

In June SunTek® Window Films parent company Commonwealth Laminating & Coating Inc. in Martinsville, Va., introduced a new line of architectural window film: Ultra-Vision™. This line of unique, high-end, spectrally selective window films offers the end-user relatively high visible light transmission and total solar energy rejection, as well as relatively low visual reflectance. The ULV 70 and ULV 50 products in the line feature all-metal, 1.5-mil construction with a dry adhesive. The film is manufactured using all non-corrosive raw materials, so silicone edge-sealing is not required to take advantage of the manufacturer’s warranty. www.suntekfilms.com
