C.H. Hanson
Naperville, Ill.

Information about the Masonry Industry

C.H. Hanson's Chalk Hog 100 uses less chalk by providing cleaner and sharper lines, due to its built-in cleaning pad and a high-density, poly-braided line that resists fraying and breakage. Four- or eight-ounce chalk bottles can be directly mounted into the chalk reel. It comes equipped with a built-in pencil sharpener and End-Mate, a line hook with added gripping power and a swivel to easily snap straight or angled lines. For fast fixes, Chalk Hog 100 has a one-screw maintenance bay. For more information, visit www.chhanson.com.

Power Fasteners Inc.
Brewster, N.Y.

Information about the Masonry Industry

Powers Fasteners Inc.'s Power-Stud+SD2 carbon steel bolt is one of the industry's first mechanical anchors to meet the new, more stringent International Building Code. The Power-Stud+SD2 is a one-piece, fully threaded wedge anchor designed for concrete and other masonry applications. Because of its one-piece stainless steel clip design, the anchor has more holding power than the company's existing Power-Stud. For more information, visit www.powers.com.

Pro-Tech Manufacturing and Distribution
Rochester, N.Y.

Information about the Masonry Industry

Pro-Tech Manufacturing and Distribution's multi-purpose Work Box is intended as a means for material site clean up, transporting resources and lifting people as a work platform. It meets all ANSI standards for lifting personnel and is vastly larger and more durable than a conventional work platform. It is also much safer than homemade, wooden boxes built for material handling. For more information, call 888-787-4766.

Charlotte, N.C.

Information about the Masonry Industry

Sakrete's Paver Set Polymeric Sand is a high-performance joint sand for use with pavers in patios, walkways and drives. Just pour Paver Set from the bag, sweep it into the paver joints, and mist with a fine spray from a hose. It will harden to lock out weeds and bugs, and resist wash out. Polymeric Sand is made with special polymers that adhere to the joints as the material cures. This product has been developed in conjunction with Oldcastle Architectural Products.
