Safety is a big priority in our industry as many contractors and business employees find themselves having to work in risky environments such as tall buildings. One way you can help keep you and your employee safe is to use the Sky Web II Fall Protection and Insulation Support System.
The Sky-Web-II® System is an innovative passive restraint system that protects workers from falls at the leading edge of a roof. It provides a “web” of knotted nylon mesh that is attached to the perimeter of the roof’s secondary structural members. This products leads to an increase in safety and reduces injury.
Be safe this year and look into using the Sky Web II Fall Protection System. You and you’re co-workers will be glad you did.

Windows can provide a great view, but more than that, if they’re placed in the right locations, then they can also save you money on your utility bill and keep you more comfortable at home or work. It’s called day lighting and it takes a simple concept to a new level. Day lighting combines lots of things – everything from the type of window, window placement and interior design to control how sunlight comes in. They all work to maximize benefits from natural sunlight.
Windows that face south are best in the U.S. They let in the most light in the winter months but little direct sun during the summer keeping the inside cooler. North-facing windows are also good for day lighting they let an even natural light with little glare and little summer heat. Windows that face east and west don’t work nearly as well for day lighting they do provide lots of light in the morning and afternoon but it often comes with lots of glare and excess heat during the summer months.
Office buildings would benefit from skylights that team up with windows to bring in as much natural light as possible. This would reflect and enhance the daylight so that it fills the room. This would reduce the need for overhead lights, and make the office more energy efficient.
To account for glare an office building can place hoods outside around the windows. These hoods also cut down on summer heat keeping the office cooler and more comfortable. On the inside, louvers or tinting reduce glare and also direct light to reflective surfaces inside allowing plenty of natural light to come into work areas. One big help to day lighting is the window technologies available today. Windows are now way more energy-efficient. They insulate while still letting the light in.
Offices may also consider installing electrochromic windows, which change with the brightness of the sunlight outside. As the Sun tracks across the sky it darkens to keep excess heat out. It’s like giant polarized sunglasses.
Day lighting can have a positive effect studies have shown that with good day lighting at the office productivity goes up and absenteeism goes down, and that’s good for the bottom line. Natural lighting and heating means you use less electricity and lower your utility bill, and the more natural lighting the more money you can save.
Recently Google bought Nest, a digital thermostat company for 3 billion dollars. Nest thermostats are much more than a digital thermostat that can be connected to the web and controlled by your smart phone. They are also self learning thermostats that will change their behavior based on your personal schedule. Nest takes the programmer thermostat to a whole new level for homeowners. However, these devices aren’t cheap costing roughly $250 a piece. You don’t have to spend $250 for a digital thermostat for your customer’s home but a nice programmer thermostat will do just as good of job in helping make a home more energy efficient.
Google buying Nest signals that major companies, including technology companies, are willing to bet big on the home energy market and are looking to integrate technology to help homes become more energy efficient. Continuously be on the lookout for new technology similar to Nest Thermostats that make their way to market as they can help you integrate technology into your customer’s home giving you an edge over your competition.
