Spring Work Boot Styles

KEEN Utility
Portland, Ore.

The athletic-inspired design of the Lexington makes it one boot versatile enough for work to weekend. The super-slip-resistant outsole features drainage channels that direct water and oils away from contact points under the foot, similar to a tire tread, helping to increase stability and sure-footing indoors and out and exceeding Mark II Slip-Resistance testing standards. The Lexington features asymmetrical composite safety toes that deliver lightweight, contoured protection along with other performance features, including waterproof leather and a KEEN dry breathable waterproof membrane that allows moisture out but never in.


Bethany, Conn.

LATICRETE has added eight additive colors to its SPECTRALOCK Dazzle line. Blue Hawaii, Tangerine Orange, Limeade, Pretty in Pink, Lemonade, Ruby Slippers, Candied Apple and Purple Haze add design enhancements to LATICRETE SPECTRALOCK PRO Premium Grout and LATICRETE SPECTRALOCK PRO Grout applications. Appropriate for both walls and floors, Dazzle can enhance plain tile and stone installations with a metallic look. It adds visual "kick" by accentuating metallic tiles, glass tiles, mosaics and natural stone with its various color combinations.

Online Marketplace for Landscape Products
Online Marketplace for Landscape Products
SHARKMARX has launched a procurement engine that allows landscape professionals to buy and sell products by posting their material needs on the SHARKMARX website. Its procurement engine automatically solicits bids from authorized sellers of those products. Each seller can submit competitive bid to earn the business. Winning sellers arrange delivery or pick-up as specified by the buyers material needs. The engine uses a reverse auction to get sellers competing for business, thus driving the price down for the seller and guaranteeing they get the best possible price.

Loxon Conditioner With Premium Performance

Cleveland, Ohio

Loxon Conditioner With Premium Performance
Loxon Conditioner With Premium Performance
Sherwin-Williams’ Loxon Conditioner is a patented acrylic formula that offers resistance to alkali; efflorescence resistance; adhesion; and fast cure time. The conditioner will bond light chalk and dusting concrete and is useful where the existing topcoat has deteriorated over time. Available in a clear or white, the pigmented version is helpful for seeing where the product has been applied on bare masonry. Fast cure time allows vertical masonry surfaces to be coated with a seven-day cure. Temperature tolerance is as low as 40 degrees.

ThermaCELL Outdoor Lantern

Bedford, Mass.

ThermaCELL Outdoor Lantern
ThermaCELL Outdoor Lantern
ThermaCELL’s outdoor bug repellent lantern provides a 15- X 15-foot area repellent that keeps bugs out. The ThermaCELL Outdoor Lantern has eight LEDs and offers twice as much light as earlier ThermaCELL models. It operates on a single butane cartridge, which heats a repellent mat releasing allethrin, a synthetic copy of a natural insecticide found in chrysanthemum flowers, into the air. The easy-grip handle mimics the finger formation of the hand, so the lantern is easy to carry or hang. The lantern weighs less than a pound, making transportation a breeze.
