The Cable Connection - Push-Lock Lag

For posts with sleeves, you will want to go through the sleeves and connect to the core underneath. As that is usually wood, you will lag into the post. If necessary, Ultra-tec® makes extended length lags to ensure the fitting will sink deeply enough into the core to be secure.


Eldorado Fireplace Surrounds - The Bryant

The Bryant is an elegant surround that transcends all design styles with multiple layers of intricate yet linear carvings. The base blocks further enhance its stature and solid stance.

Dallas homeowners found themselves in a unique position as they were building their dream home. 

Their trusted employee who maintained their property weekly and needed access to their storage areas for seasonal decorations and many other items had only one arm. So, pulling down the 12’ high attic stairs was nearly impossible for him.

Steele Creek is a luxury high-rise apartment complex located in the heart of Cherry Creek in Denver, Colorado. Designed by The Housing Studio and Rottet Studio, two renowned architectural firms, this 218-unit masterwork features a soaring, mostly glass façade atop a foundational stone podium. 

The 446,000 sq. ft. project, carried out by Denver-based general contractor Haselden Construction, is comprised of two buildings, the Adams Building (8 floors) and the Steele Building (12 floors with underground parking), which are connected via a bridge that crosses a public alley.

SYNLawn, the only artificial grass manufacturer with a complete plant-based surfacing system, was recently installed at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex specifically in the rocket launch viewing area. The 20,000 square feet of SYNAugustine 547 turf covers the equivalent of more than four basketball courts. SYNLawn's SYNAugustine 547 is a new USDA Certified bio-based product that uses plant-based polyethylene thatch fibers made from sugarcane polymers in addition to soy polymers used in the turf backing. This groundbreaking, environmentally friendly artificial grass meets the heavy foot-traffic demands of the visitor complex.
