Solid Brass Door Stops

Here at Equiparts, we are all about providing quality products meant to withstand daily use.

How often do you think about the door stops at your facility? They may often be overlooked, but they are an essential part of the day-to-day job of any maintenance team.

Door stops can be very important for the safety of your maintenance team. We often see heavy objects, such as a rock or cinder block, used to prop open doors. With this method, a person who is likely carrying a heavy object already has to put down that object and prop open the door. Not only is this inconvenient, it creates a safety hazard, as the object could cause someone to trip and fall.

Door Stop Construction and Features:

Our door stops are constructed of solid brass and feature a spring design to hold the stop in position when not in use. They come in a variety of finishes. The rubber on the foot of the door stop holds the stop in place while in use.

Installation Tips:

• Install with the door open to make sure the rubber foot is properly fitted to the area of floor where it will be used.

• When using these door stops on a door that is not wood, be sure to use screws compatible with the material of the door.

• Choose the correct size door stop based on how much clearance is underneath your door. The more clearance, the large stop you’ll need.

Benefits of Brass

  • Brass is durable. A brass door stop will hold up to years of use and abuse.
  • Brass is resistant to corrosion. It will not rust, even under harsh outdoor conditions.
  • Brass is aesthetically pleasing. We carry a variety of finishes, from dull chrome to polished brass, to fit in with the look of your building, no matter what style is has.
  • Brass is easy to maintain. We all know that door stops are most commonly operated by foot. The best way to clean the grime off a brass stop is to simply wipe it down with a wet cloth.

As previously mentioned, Equiparts carries a variety of Solid Brass Door Stops, to fit the needs and look of any facility. We have the following options available on our website:

Dull Chrome Kickdown Door Holder – Part #01168

Polished Brass Kickdown Door Holder – Part #01169

Megapro Screwdriver Comparison Guide

Megapro Screwdriver Comparison Guide

Megapro® Drivers are an innovative, high-quality line of screwdrivers that feature a clever built-in storage system. Every driver comes with a set of bits that are actually stored inside the driver’s handle so that you’ll never have to lose another bit! The variety of bits supplied allows you to save space in your toolbox by essentially combining several driver types into one. And these drivers are built to last! Equiparts carries a variety of Megapro® Drivers for both general and specialty use.

There are several features that all Megapro® Drivers have in common. The shaft of each driver can be used as a 1/4″ Hex Nut Driver. They also all have a patented Palm Saver Cap™, which does not turn as the users turns the driver. Another feature these drivers (except the Ratcheting Driver) share is the patented EZ Guide Collar™, which provides the user with better control and maintains consistent contact between the driver bit and the screw. This allows the screw to be driven with much more ease. The drivers each have a retractable bit cartridge located at the top of the driver. This allows for easy storage and organization of bits, making any job that much easier.

This was an innovative idea, and would help solve the problem of missing bits while on the job. After numerous prototypes and sketches, the first Megapro screwdriver was created in the early 1990s. Its patented features quickly gained market success, and many users saw and appreciated the quality of the screwdriver as well as how easy it was to use. There are over twenty different variations of the screwdriver, each one designed specifically for a different type of job. Today, Megapro continues to grow domestically, and their international reach is also expanding.

Commercial Faucet Aerator Guide

 

commercial faucet aerators

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to cut down on water usage, adding water-saving aerators to your faucets is an excellent way to do just that. Consider that home and business owners pay for water three times: once to bring it into the building, once to heat it, and once to dispose of it. Think about the number of customers at your restaurant, guests at your hotel, or students at your school, and you’ll realize how expensive water usage can be. Swapping water-saving aerators into your faucets is a simple way to save a lot of money on your utility bills.

cache aerator on faucet with keyHow Do Aerators Work?

Aerators work by mixing air into the water stream, thus breaking one large stream of water into multitudes of tiny streams. This means less water coming out of the faucet without sacrificing water pressure.

Why Install Aerators in Your Facility’s Faucets?

Aerators reduce the amount of water coming out of your faucets, and so your water bills will be lower. Along with being cost-effective, installing water-saving aerators is one of the easiest things you can do to make your home, office, or commercial building more efficient. They can be installed and ready for use in seconds! Adding air into the water stream also helps reduce splashing, and will cut down on wet restroom floors. This can help prevent slip and fall accidents, and make your facility more appealing. View Aerator Identification Chart.

 

Faucet Aerators Q&A

How Do I Choose an Aerator for my Faucet?sloan-faucet-aerator

There are several things to consider when selecting an aerator. GPM (gallons per minute), thread type, thread size, flow type, and style are the main factors. Different flow types include aerated, laminar, and spray. Laminar flow is recommended in hospitals and other health care facilities, and spray is used mainly in kitchen faucets. There are also vandal resistant styles available.

How Do I Determine Whether I Need a Male or Female Aerator?sloan-faucet-aerator

When you see the threads on the outside of the faucet, you have a male faucet and therefore need a female aerator. If the threads are located inside of the faucet, then you need a male aerator.

How to Determine Correct Aerator Size

There is an easy trick to determining which aerator size is needed to fit your faucet, and it just involves some spare basys-faucet-aeratorchange. A dime has a diameter of .705 inches and will fit on the threads of 13/16 size aerators, which have a diameter of .8125 inches. A nickel has a diameter of .835 inches. A nickel will fit on the threads of a 15/16 size aerator, which has a diameter of .9375 inches.

Is There a Universal Aerator?

There is a dual aerator that has threads on both the outside and inside of the aerator. This enables the spout to fit both male and female threaded faucets.  Dual thread aerators come in a variety of flow rates, from 0.35 to 2.2 GPM in 15/16” size only.

How Do I Install a Faucet Aerator?

Most aerators come ready to install, but some do not. For example, when using the female threads of dual aerators, you will need to remove one of the inside washers to expose the internal threading.

When Should I Replace My Aerator?

If the flow from your faucet is trickling out or only coming out of one side of the spout, then your aerator is likely clogged and needs to be either cleaned or replaced. The length of time your aerator lasts is determined by the quality of your water, how often the faucet is used, and other situational factors.

How Do I Remove an Aerator?

Unscrew male and female threaded aerators by turning the aerator counter clockwise. In most cases, when the aerator is not vandal resistant, you should be able to remove it with your hands. Tools will not be needed. However, if an aerator is very tight, you may need to use a non-marking wrench to remove the aerator. We recommend using a non-marking wrench because a regular wrench might mar the faucet or aerator. If the aerator spins and does not become loose when turned, then the aerator is likely vandal-resistant and requires a key for removal. If you look at the face of the aerator and you see two slots on opposite sides of the aerator, it is most likely a vandal-resistant type. The slots are where a special key is inserted in order to remove the aerator. Cache aerators also require a key for removal.

How Do I Figure Out Which Aerator to Get if My Faucet Doesn’t Have One?

If you are missing the aerator for your faucet, then determining the correct replacement aerator for that unit can be difficult. You can try searching with the manufacturer number of your faucet, or you can reach out to us at Equiparts to help you figure out which aerator likely fits your faucet.

How Do I Unclog an Aerator?

To unclog an aerator, you can soak it in vinegar and water or CLR (calcium lime remover) to remove any dirt, particles, calcium, or lime build-up.

How to Reduce Splash from My Faucet Stream?

Splash from your faucet can occur for a variety of reasons. Shallow or beveled basins, as well as angled faucet spouts can make splashing from the faucet stream more likely. One way to reduce or stop splash from happening is by decreasing the faucet’s flow rate. This can be done by installing an aerator with a lower GPM.

General Rules of Thumb

  • • Most kitchen faucets will require a 15/16 male thread aerator cache-aerator-faucetwith 2.2 GPM.
  • • Most commercial faucets will fit 13/16 or 15/16 sized aerators. They will likely use vandal proof style aerators that can only be removed with a key.
  • • Most residential faucets will use 13/16 sized aerators or smaller.
  • • Laminar flow aerators are used primarily in hospitals because they do not mix air in with the water.
  • • Cache Aerators, which are hidden within the head of faucets, are new style aerators that only fit in newer model faucets due to the different thread diameter they have. View Cache aerators or get help deciding which Cache aerators to purchase with this Cache Aerator and Kit GPM Diagram.

Where to Buy Commercial Faucet Aerators

Commercial aerators cannot be purchased at big-box stores. Vandal-resistant aerators, specialty thread aerators, and manufacturer-specific aerators are also usually not found in home improvement stores since they are designed for commercial applications. In some instances, faucets require an aerator designed specifically for that faucet or manufacturer. For example, gooseneck Chicago Faucets have a special thread that requires a specific Chicago aerator. This is also the case with Symmons and Speakman commercial faucets and aerators as well. Some Kohler faucets require a specialized ⅜ IPS thread.

We carry all of the most popular sizes and commercial brands, including Chicago, Sloan, Central Brass, Symmons, Moen, as well as residential faucet manufacturers like Kohler and Delta.

Fire Sprinkler Shut Off Tool

Quickstop fire sprinkler shut off tool

The Quickstop Fire Sprinkler Shut Off Tool is designed to temporarily stop the flow of water from a fire sprinkler. We highly recommend having this tool on hand in facilities with emergency fire sprinklers. The Talon Fire Sprinkler Tool is a must-have for hotels, classrooms, and commercial buildings.

It can take a long time to shut off the water, especially in larger facilities. Having this tool on hand can save a building from costly water damage. If you want your facility to have the tool it needs to shut off an emergency fire sprinkler, this is the tool you need. It’s reusable, adjustable, and easy to use.

How does the Quickstop Talon Fire Sprinkler Shut Off Tool work?

Quickstop Fire Sprinkler Shut Off ToolThe upper arm slides around the threaded area of the fire sprinkler. The lower arm has a round rubber gasket that seals the opening of the sprinkler head. The gasket fits over the entire opening of the sprinkler which stops the flow of water. The Quickstop Talon is designed to stay out of the direct flow of water so it should be easy to attach to the sprinkler. Then you simply squeeze the clamp to put the tool in place.

On the back of the tool, there is an adjustable screw and nut that can be raised or lowered, enabling the Fire Sprinkler Shut-Off tool to fit various fire sprinkler sizes. Every unit comes preset with the correct settings for the standard fire sprinkler size. There is also a red ‘quick release’ arm that enables the user to release the tool from a sprinkler system with one hand.

It is made of zinc and chrome plated steel, which protects the tool against rust. The Quickstop Talon has been tested to be 100% water tight up to 350 pounds per square inch (PSI).

Plumbing Fact: According to the International Plumbing Code, a building with water pressure that exceeds 80 PSI requires a pressure reducing valve. This means that this fire sprinkler tool is functional well over the maximum water flow rate. 

What Types of Fire Sprinklers does it work on?

  • • Conventional Fire Sprinklers
  • • Upright Fire Sprinklers
  • • Pendant Fire Sprinklers
  • • Horizontal Sidewall Fire Sprinklers
  • • Vertical Sidewall Fire Sprinklers
  • • Recessed Pendent Fire Sprinklers

This tool works on 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch fire sprinkler heads. Not only does this tool work for various sprinkler head sizes, but it also works on damaged and sheared units as well. The dimensions of the tool are 8 in × 3 in × 2 in.

Order this emergency fire sprinkler shut-off tool by requesting a quote on our website, or by calling us toll-free at 800-442-6622 Monday-Friday, 7:30AM-5:00PM EST.

Share the Quickstop Fire Sprinkler Shut Off Tool PDF with your facility director, maintenance team, or purchasing department to keep your facility prepared in case an activated fire sprinkler needs to be turned off.

ClogChopper™ Drain Cleaning Tool

 

ClogChopper

The ClogChopper™ from GClogChopper by General Pipe Cleanerseneral Pipe Cleaners is a powerful drain cleaner that cuts through debris without damaging pipes. Unlike snakes or drain cleaning tool heads that go around tough clogs, the ClogChopper cuts right through them. Clogs caused by roots, scale, and crystallized urine are easily ground up and released by using this tool. The ClogChopper can safely be used in metal, plastic, & clay pipes.

 

How the ClogChopper™ Works

The ClogChopper has a spherical head with six self-sharpening blades that cut through a large variety of substances that clog a drain. As the snake spins, the blades work together to slice through blockages and safely scrape the walls of pipes to remove built up substances. One of the best features of the tool is that it is specifically designed to safely maneuver around bends and traps while maintaining a central line position. Maintaining that central line position greatly reduces the chance of damaging pipe walls, elbows, connections, and joints. The tool’s “all surface” cutting blades not only clear major blockages, but they also scrape the debris that is coated on the walls of the pipe. This helps stop more debris from collecting and causing another clogged pipe down the line.

DrainCleaner-ClogChopper-GeneralPipeCleaners

The tool connects to the head of General Pipe and Ridgid drain cleaning machines. When in use, the tool glides smoothly through the pipe without rattling or jumping. It filters all debris into and out of the tool in one smooth operation. It attaches to the coupling of the snake, and works on everything from handheld snake tools to mini-rooters and maxi-rooters. The combination of the ClogChopper’s cutting power, smooth maneuverability, and safe wall scraping feature make this a much more effective tool than augers, spiral saws, spade cutters, or similar instruments.

*Order Tip: Standard models connect to General Pipe Products. If you need a ClogChopper that connects to Ridgid snakes or drain cleaning machines, be sure to note that when ordering so we give you the right model for your needs.) 

Rip Through Tough Stoppages with Ease!

The ClogChopper drain cleaning tool is available in many different sizes. We have the following sizes available on our website, and can get  other sizes for our customers:

• 1″ ClogChopper – for 5/16″ and 3/8″ cables. Part #36505 (Part #36505R for Ridgid snakes)
• 2″ ClogChopper – for 5/16″ and 3/8″ cables. Part #37733 (Part #37733R for Ridgid snakes)
• 3″ ClogChopper – for 5/8″ and 3/4″ cables. Part #37741 (Part #37741R for Ridgid snakes)
• 4″ ClogChopper – for 5/8″ and 3/4″ cables. Part #37740

This drain cleaning tool can safely be used in downspouts and mains, for drain lining jobs, and clearing stacks.

General Pipe Cleaners manufacturers high-quality drain cleaning products and tools. All General Pipe Cleaner products are manufactured in the United States. Equiparts has a strong relationship with General Pipe Cleaners. We have been a distributor of their drain equipment for over 40 years. According to the manufacturer, since parts like cutters are subject to severe wear, they will be replaced or repaired  only if a flaw in the material causes the breakage, and if it’s within a year since the purchase.

The Benefits of Oxygenated Shower Heads

The Benefits of Oxygenics Shower Heads make them a no-brainer for all situations, in both residential and commercial applications. These high-performance showerheads are water efficient and also improve user shower experience.

OxygenicsShowerHeadGraphic• Supercharging Water with oxygen gets the absolute most out of each drop, making the most efficient use of available resources.

• Adding Oxygen to water is like filling up a balloon with air. It makes the water droplets expand so they come out of the shower heads larger and wider, covering more of you when you shower.

• The Mixture of oxygen and water that occurs in an Oxygenics shower head creates an effect like a jet engine, blasting away dirt and odor with incredible strength.

Anti-Clog properties like Delrin nonstick internal components and the single flow design helps stop clogs like calcium build up from occurring, a common problem in areas with hard, mineral-rich water.

New Showerhead Technology Delivers Power AND Efficiency

Oxygenics showerheads bring you great water pressure while saving water at the same time. They use only 1.5 gallons of water per minute, a whopping 1 GPM less than the maximum the US government mandates (2.5 GPM). Oxygenics showerheads do this without sacrificing pressure. Here’s how:

The Oxygenics Engine: It’s what drives these shower heads. Originally developed in 1981, it has been perfected over three decades to make the most of the available water resources and give you a powerful, water saving shower experience at any pressure.

1. Pressure Chamber: Water is introduced into a pressure chamber that works like a mini-turbine jet, increasing water velocity.

2. Air Vacuum: Water passes through an air vacuum at high speed, infusing oxygen into each drop.

3. Spray Head: The pressurized combination of water and oxygen is released through an expanding nozzle, widening coverage and greatly increasing water power.

Choose the Oxygenics showerhead model below that is most fitting for your application.
