New MaxiFlex Ultimate Cooling Gloves

The Newest Glove from Protective Industrial Products: MaxiFlex® Ultimate™ Cooling Gloves

If you’re looking for a glove that offers top-of-the-line comfort and dry grip, MaxiFlex Ultimate Cooling Gloves are the answer. MaxiFlex Ultimate Cooling Gloves are made with AD-APT™ technology that keeps hands 31% cooler than the standard MaxiFlex Ultimate gloves.

How Do MaxiFlex Ultimate Cooling Gloves Keep Hands Cool?

MaxiFlex Ultimate Cooling Gloves have a unique design that enables the following:

  • Regulation – Keep hands cool to reduce sweat

  • Circulation – 360-degree breathability moves air in and out

  • Ventilation – Channels heat away

  • Excellent Dexterity – Rounded fingertips and increased sensitivity allow for detailed work

What exactly is “AD-APT technology”?

AD-APT technology is a proprietary system that releases microencapsulated, natural cooling agents as the temperature rises on the inside palm area of the glove. This keeps your hands dry, comfortable, and more productive all day long. Patented AIRtech® channels give these gloves the ultimate ventilation.

MaxiFlex Ultimate Cooling Gloves

When should you wear MaxiFlex Cooling Gloves?

This style of MaxiFlex gloves are designed to be worn in primarily dry environments, but they can also be worn when working with light oils. They have micro-foam nitrile coated palms and fingers, giving you excellent grip and dexterity in chemicals including oils, petrochemicals, fuels, and most acids. Here are some example situations when MaxiFlex Cooling Gloves should be worn:

  • Maintenance tasks
  • General assembly
  • Micro-engineering
  • Automotive components
  • Painting
  • Horticulture
  • Warehousing

Why does Equiparts love MaxiFlex Gloves?

Equiparts has supplied our customers with MaxiFlex Gloves by Protective Industrial Products for many years. We like MaxiFlex gloves mainly because they provide excellent dexterity. In fact, we have found that most MaxiFlex gloves, like the cooling gloves featured in this article, pass the “Dime Test”. This means that while wearing MaxiFlex Gloves, you can pick a dime up from a flat surface. This proves that the gloves enable the wearer to be nimble. This is the opposite of some thicker, looser gloves that make the wearer more clumsy and unable to grip small items, like screws or hand tools. We also like MaxiFlex and MaxiDry gloves because they are comfortable, high-quality, reusable and long lasting gloves.

Block-Aide Restroom Out of Order Sign and Stall Lock

Fixing out of order toilets and urinals is probably not your favorite repair job. But unfortunately, toilets and urinals do clog and leak. Flushometers need to be repaired or replaced. Whatever the problem is, the restroom stall will be out of service while you get the fixture back in working order. This is where the Block-Aide comes in handy. It can do the following simultaneously, and in a more professional manner:

  1. 1. Inform patrons that the restroom stall is out of service
  2. 2. Locks patrons out of the stall so that they don’t see the broken fixture or accidentally use a non-functioning unit.

Watch our video to learn more about the reusable Block-Aide door lock and sign.

Can’t see the video? Read the article below to learn the features of the Block-Aide and see how it works as 2-in-1 out of service sign and stall lock.

The next time you have a restroom out of order and you need to let people know, instead of making a handwritten restroom out of order sign on a piece of cardboard, or covering the fixture with a garbage bag, you should use a Block-Aide door lock and out of service sign.

What is the Block-Aide?

It’s a nifty little device that is a 2-in-1 out of order sign and door lock designed specifically for out of order partition stalls. The Block-Aide sign has the following dimensions: ⅝”H x 3”W x 1-½”D.

Block Aide Features

  • Professional ‘Sorry, Out of Service’ signage
  • Constructed of sturdy ABS resin
  • Unique design that locks the stall door when in use

The unique locking design of the Block-Aide makes it so patrons cannot open the stall door when it is in use. It locks people out of the restroom stall, so that they cannot go in and see the out of order fixture, or worst yet, use it by mistake.

Learn how the BlockAide works as a restoom stall out of order sign and stall lock

How to Use

The Block-Aide is very easy to use. You just slide it down between the pilaster and door. The placement of the sign then works as a stall lock, blocking customers, students, patrons and the like from entering the out of order restroom stall.

You already have enough to deal with when a fixture stops working. Fix broken fixtures faster by focusing on the problem at hand instead of making a sign. With the Block-Adie, you can quickly slip the bathroom out of order sign and stall lock between the pilaster and the partition door. Then you can move on to complete the repairs you need, and focus on getting the toilet or urinal working again. Make your job easier by keeping a couple of Block-Aides in stock so you can easily inform and lock-out patrons when a stall is temporarily out of service.

Call to Order The Professional ‘Out of Order’ Restroom Stall Block-Aide Sign

Keep a couple of Block-Aides in stock, and make your next out of order restroom stall repair job easier on yourself, and professionally identify the situation to restroom users. Call to place your order.

Better than Rubber and Wax Gaskets: New Elastomer Gaskets

Elastomer Gaskets for toilet and urinal installations are a revolutionary new sealing option for plumbers and facility managers. We are excited to provide our customers with this innovative new gasket that will most likely make wax and rubber gaskets obsolete. Watch our video and read our article below to learn more about Elastomer Gaskets by Tight Seal, and gain a full understanding of Elastomer Gaskets in comparison to Wax and Wax-Free Rubber Gaskets. Know your options when it comes to gaskets, and why more and more of our plumbing and facility maintenance customers are switching to new Elastomer Gaskets.

Tight Seal Elastomer Gaskets Video

The Best Gasket Material: Elastomer

Tight Seal Elastomer Gaskets are named after the material they are made of: Elastomer. Elastomer is a sticky, springy material that bounces back after being compressed. Elastomer Gaskets share the best qualities of wax and rubber gaskets, without the drawbacks. They provide an airtight seal like wax gaskets, while maintaining their shape under pressure. They also hold up under hot/cold temperatures like rubber gaskets. Read on for the full benefits of Elastomer Gaskets by Tight Seal.

The Benefits of Elastomer Gaskets

  • Won’t melt in hot weather or become hard
    in cold weather
  • Reusable
  • Springs back into shape after being squeezed
  • Allows repositioning of fixture
  • Sticky Elastomer ensures a tight seal
  • No more scraping messy wax off of fixtures

Now that you know what makes Elastomer Gaskets so great, let’s take a look at other gasket types and compare their pros and cons for a full picture of toilet and urinal sealing options. (Or skip down to find out How to Purchase)

The Pros and Cons of Wax Gaskets

Wax Rings are used as a gasket for toilet and urinal installations for three reasons:

Wax Ring Pros

  • The wax material conforms to the fixture, creating a seal that is airtight.
  • They are cheap.
  • They can be stacked.

Wax Ring Cons

  • A wax gasket needs to be lined up completely accurately when installing, or else you may need to use an entirely new wax gasket when repositioning the fixture.
  • Wax gaskets can melt. Leave them in your truck in the Summer, or install them near a floor with radiant heat, and a wax seal will melt, losing its shape and its ability to properly seal.
  • Wax toilet and urinal gaskets can also freeze in the winter.
  • Wax rings can become misshapen. For example, when a heavier person sits on a toilet with a wax ring, the ring can flatten in an area, and then fixture will become tilted which in turn can break the seal of the gasket.
  • Wax rings leave a waxy residue that creates a mess.

Rubber Gaskets: The Pros and Cons

Rubber Gaskets are chosen as gaskets for toilet and urinal installations mainly for the following reasons:

Pros of Rubber Gaskets

  • Rubber gaskets can help direct flow with angled flanges, which helps deter potential leakage.
  • Rubber gaskets are wax-free, which means they are less messy.
  • Rubber gaskets will not flatten or become misshapen, which helps to keep the drain open and the fixture in the correct position.
  • When toilets or urinals need to be replaced, or when maintenance requires the fixture to be disconnected, then that rubber gasket can be easily removed

Rubber Gasket Cons

  • Rubber gaskets don’t have as tight of a seal as more sticky gaskets do
  • Rubber gaskets are more expensive than wax gaskets

Why Choose One Gasket Type Over Another?

Gasket choice really comes down to personal preference, which is why we carry wax gaskets, wax-free or rubber gaskets, as well as our latest offering, the newest innovation in gasket material, Elastomer Gaskets.

Elastomer Gaskets in different sizes and styles

3/4” Elastomer Closet Gasket #67931
1-1/8” Jumbo Elastomer Closet Gasket #67933
1/2” Elastomer Tank To Bowl Gasket #67935
1/2” Elastomer Urinal Gasket #67938
3/4” Elastomer Closet Gasket With Flange #67932

The Clogged Roof Drain Solution: Mifab RoofGuards

The Clogged Roof Drain Solution: Mifab RoofGuards

Standing water on flat roofs is a major problem, especially for large commercial facilities that have multiple buildings to manage. As a distributor of a variety of plumbing and maintenance fixtures and repair parts, we like to show you how our most innovative products make maintenance tasks easier, and solve the problems you face at your facility. This RoofGuard by Mifab will greatly reduce the number of maintenance visits you will need to make to the rooftop. It virtually eliminates standing water on flat roofs because it’s almost impossible for these well-designed drain covers to clog and cause water dams – an occurrence that happens regularly with the less-than-perfect design of regular roof drain domes.

Watch the video below starring Brian Tupper of Triumph Sales. He explains the problems that occur on flat roofs, why they happen, and how the new, patent-pending RoofGuard by Mifab is designed to solve the expensive and maintenance-intensive problems caused by regular dome-shaped roof drains.

The Problem with Regular Roof Drain Domes

Regular roof drain domes often get clogged by leaves, plastic bags, and other debris that collects on flat roofs. This creates a water dam, and prevents rainwater from flowing down the roof drain. This results in standing water on the roof, which can cause a variety of expensive problems.

As described in the video above, the dome shape of regular roof drains is not ideal for preventing clogs and enabling proper water drainage. The tall shape, vertical drain ports, and 12” diameter of dome-style roof drain covers is what makes them less than effective roof drain covers.

The Damage Caused by Clogged Roof Drains

Standing water can occur on flat roofs when roof drains or roof drain covers become clogged. The water around them has nowhere to go, so it simply collects on the rooftop and causes big, expensive problems. Since this standing water occurs on the roof, a place where people don’t usually frequent, it may collect for long periods of time before it is noticed. This leads to water damage that causes discoloration, sagging roofs, leaks and roof damage that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to fix.

The damaged caused by clogged roof drains is such a large problem that building codes for buildings with flat rooftops require a secondary overflow roof drain. However, even with a secondary roof drain, both dome-shaped roof drain covers can become clogged, and cause water to collect.

This is where Mifab’s new Roof Drain’s come in.

The Solution for Better Roof Drain Covers: Mifab RoofGuards

Mifab RoofGuards are the covers that are placed over Mifab roof drains and other roof drains, and prevent debris from entering and clogging roof drains. Roofguards are ideal for replacing existing roof drain domes on the roofs of schools, warehouses, factories, office buildings, and any other building that has standing water on the roof due to clogged roof drain domes. The horizontal slots of the RoofGuard design are much more effective than the vertical slots of other roof drain domes in preventing clogs and keeping the water flowing down the drain instead of collecting on the roof.

Mifab RoofGuard Diagram

They enable the debris like leaves that collect and clog regular roof drains to float above the guard when there is a surplus of water, enabling the water to flow below the debris and into the roof drain. The diagram above shows how horizontal Roofguards by Mifab enable water to flow down through the drain, with debris floating to the top.

Two Types of Mifab Roof Drains

Mifab makes two different styles of RoofGuards. One is plastic and adheres to the roof with an adhesive (included), and the other is made of cast iron and attaches to the roof with hardware (also included). The roof is not penetrated with either of these guards. They are both universal in the sense that they fit most any roof drain on a flat roof. Compare these two Mifab Roof Drain RoofGuards below:

The Step-n-Wash: A Commercial Grade Step-Stool

The Step-n-Wash: A Commercial Grade Step-Stool

Most public restrooms are not kid-friendly. Lavatory sinks are not designed with the height of a child in mind. But it is very important for children to be able to wash their hands since that is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of germs and viruses. However, the adult height of most lavatories makes hand washing for children a difficult task. Most parents know the struggle of lifting a 30 to 40 pound child up to the sink. After a long day of shopping or traveling, carrying bags, loading and unloading strollers, etc., this can be quite exhausting. In addition, it almost always results in an inadequate cleaning, along with water soaking the child’s clothes and the floor. Parents tend to patronize businesses that cater to their needs and help reduce their stress. If your building includes amenities that can help create a better customer experience, that makes your business a much more attractive place to go.

step-n-wash

Introducing the Step-N-Wash:

The Commercial Retractable Step-Stool for Children

The Step-N-Wash is designed to do just that. This self-retracting step allows children to stand at the sink and wash their hands without any assistance.  No more lifting and straining for mom and dad. The parent or child can use their foot to pull the step down, and then the child can step up to the sink. When the child is finished and steps down, the step retracts back under the sink and out of the way.

The Step-N-Wash is a very sturdy, stable, and safe addition to your public restrooms. It is constructed of type 304 stainless steel, and contains no pinch points. A marine grade non-slip rubber tread provides good traction. The whole unit is bolted into the floor, and can hold a static load of up to 800 lbs. No part of an adult’s body will ever come in contact with the Step-N-Wash while it is retracted. When it is installed in a restroom with two or more lavatories, it is in full ADA compliance.

The Step-N-Wash is also very cost effective. If the Step-N-Wash is used just 15 times a day, that works out to less than two cents per use over a five year period. The Step-N-Wash is used significantly more often than a diaper changing table. It will also help keep your restrooms dry, thereby reducing your liability for slips and falls.

There are many businesses where the Step-N-Wash is already in use all around the country; places such as shopping malls, airports, restaurants, amusement parks, museums, aquariums, churches, and schools. Create a better customer experience by making your business a more stress-free place for parents. They’ll thank you by becoming returning customers.

Hinge Repair Screws

Fix your loose door hinges without drilling new holes! Hinge Repair Screws are the most efficient option when making hinge repairs caused by stripped screws. These specially made screws have a #12 Phillips undercut head with a #14 oversized body that is both self-drilling and self-tapping.

The Benefits of Using Hinge Repair Screws:
• Great fit
• Easy to use
• Time saving
• Money saving
• Streamlined hinge repairs

These specialized screws enable you to simply replace a stripped screw used in a door hinge, rather than having to resort to the multi-step, time-intensive ‘toothpick and glue method’, which involves plugging the holes with wooden dowels, redrilling the hole, then replacing with the same size screws.

The reason why these screws are specialized for this specific task is their oversized screw body and regular sized screw head. The oversized screw body enables the screw to fit tightly into the old drill hole. The regular sized screw head enables the screw to lay flush in the hinge instead of sticking out, which would prevent the door from closing all the way.

The screws listed below are divided into two sections based on screw type.

Metal Application Hinge Repair Screws

The first section includes different quantities and finishes of hinge repair screws that are designed for metal applications. This screw has an undercut head. They are self-tapping and have a fine thread, which is best when drilling into metal doors and doorways. These metal application hinge screws are available in chrome plated or black plated finishes, and in quantities of 12, 24, or 100.

Metal hinge screws

Wooden Application Hinge Repair Screws

The second section below includes hinge repair screws designed for wooden applications. They have an undercut #12 screw head and sheet metal screw thread. This screw is best to use when screwing a hinge into a wooden door and doorway. These wood application hinge screws are available in chrome, brass, and black plated finishes, and in quantities of 12, 24, or 100.

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

5” Dull Chrome Kickdown Door Holder – Part #01170

5” Polished Brass Kickdown Door Holder – Part #01171

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. Inside is a black rubber piece that when heated, expands and causes the tool to release the pressure, which allows the tool to function as a temporary sprinkler in the event of a second fire.

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.
