New technology launched for commercial roof replacements Simon Roofing, a commercial roofing manufacturer and installer, released a technologically advanced roof replacement option that is a seamless system with strength and puncture-resistant characteristics. The CLP Membrane uses cross-linked polymers in a hybrid system that’s partially factory-made and part field-fabricated. It’s specially designed to reduce or eliminate the most common failure points found in competing single-ply systems. The CLP Membrane is among the first significant innovations following a heavy investment in research and development initiatives at Simon Roofing. Part of that investment also included the outfitting of a state-of-the-art, in-house product-testing lab, partnerships with university research centers and the hiring of advanced-degreed scientists tasked with product testing and development responsibilities.

Digital workplace solution puts employee experience first People-centric integrated workplace management system (IWMS), iOFFICE, recently launched Hummingbird — a transformative set of employee-experience solutions that allows companies to leverage the existing data in their current FM or iOFFICE platform to quickly make the transition to the digital workplace. Hummingbird puts employees in the driver’s seat by democratizing access to critical workplace functions. Through a user-friendly mobile interface, employees can enjoy the perfect balance of do-it-yourself and concierge-level services, including data and analytics, wayfinding, service requests, reservations and much more. iOFFICE Hummingbird can hover above the current FM tech stack through its proprietary plug-in and representational state transfer application programming interface. It instantly connects to the IWMS, human resources systems, active directory and room scheduling systems to gather real-time data and analytics. The result is a constant feedback loop between facilities and employee action that ensures that spaces actually learn from how employees use them. iOFFICE is a Silver-level Corporate Sustaining Partner of IFMA.

Sensor monitors trace levels of VOCs, ideal for air quality applications In response to the growing demand for reliable and accurate detection of a wide range of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at extremely low levels, Ion Science Inc. — a manufacturer of gas detection instrumentation for global occupational health and environmental monitoring applications — launched a high-sensitivity version of its MiniPID 2 sensor. Ion Science’s ground-breaking MiniPID 2 HS is 15 times more sensitive than the company’s existing MiniPID 2 parts per billion (ppb) sensor. It is capable of detecting trace levels of VOCs over a long period of time making it ideal for indoor air quality monitoring. It is also well suited to clean rooms, fence line monitoring, industrial hygiene, site soil and air sampling, fugitive emissions, volatile spills, law enforcement and emergency response. Like Ion Science’s other sensors, MiniPID 2 HS incorporates patented Fence Electrode Technology, which is proven to resist humidity and contamination for optimum detection of VOCs in challenging environments.

Adhesive-backed floor mats help facilities improve floor safety and maintenance New Pig Corporation, helping workplaces manage leaks, drips and spills to create safer, cleaner and more productive environments, now offers PIG® Grippy® floor mats, designed to keep entrances and walkways safer and significantly cut potential liability claims and costs. The PIG Grippy Floor Mat, a durable, adhesive-backed absorbent mat, eliminates trip hazards commonly associated with standard carpeted or rubber-backed floor mats. Grippy stays flat and adheres tightly to most common commercial floor surfaces, but peels up easily to simplify replacement and disposal. National Floor Safety Institute-certified as a high-traction surface, Grippy mats can help reduce slip-and-fall claims by as much as 90 percent when used as part of a floor safety program. The engineered fiber matrix provides an efficient absorbent top layer that wicks moisture across the mat and dries quickly, eliminating puddles and slippery spots. A middle liquid-proof barrier layer prevents any liquid pass-through, protecting floors and providing safe walking surfaces. To watch PIG Grippy Floor Mat in action, visit www.grippymat.com. Wearable IoT system increases jobsite safety, productivity in construction Triax Technologies, Inc., a provider of wearable technology for construction site connectivity, launched its new spot-r networked technology, providing real-time, data-driven visibility into the challenging construction site environment. This unprecedented Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled technology makes the digitally connected construction worksite possible for the first time. It helps to improve worker safety and reduce incident response times, while enabling general contractors to better manage projects and labor productivity. The Triax spot-r’s lightweight wearable sensor alerts safety personnel to slip, trip and fall incidents in real time so workers can receive aid faster, and logs key data for insurers on when and where incidents occur. Additionally, in the complex construction site environment, with multiple subcontractors and trades, spot-r’s mobile dashboard provides visibility into worker location and site operations. The system operates on a closed mesh network that cuts through steel and concrete and automatically clocks workers on the jobsite. Aggregate historical hours logged enable companies to leverage data to increase productivity, estimate future project timeframes and anticipate the number of workers required for more accurate bids.
