The Prestek color brochure features a number of bridge applications where Prestek has been installed. They include pedestrian, equestrian and light vehicular spans. As one of the lightest structural systems available on the market, Prestek allows bridge installation in remote and ecologically sensitive areas. It's an effective system for use in wetland and marine-type environments because the fiberglass components do not rot or corrode and require no maintenance.

Go Away, Geese
GooseBuster is one of the first and only units to use alert and alarm calls of Canada geese recorded in the wild. Geese recognize the calls and respond instinctively. The alert call signifies nervousness or concern about potential danger, while alarm indicates immediate danger requiring instant evacuation without bothering to identify the source. Calls differ in frequency, duration and intervals. Sound combinations, sequences and speaker selection change randomly, causing geese to perceive multiple birds in motion in several locations. Cover up to 21 acres with two units or up to seven acres with one. Choose from AC or DC models.

Hoist Fitness Systems offers its first strength-training machine that uses Composite MotionTM technology, the CF-2355 Leg Press.

It combines two separate movements into one machine, allowing the body to flow through a natural multiplane motion. The user begins exercising on the machine by pressing the foot plate forward, engaging the drive system and causing the user support to move simultaneously with the foot plate. The user's entire body is moving in unison, creating a smooth and natural feel that conventional machines can't achieve.
