Newstripe announced the improved Eco-Liner II gasoline-powered field marker, now with the Qwik-Set trigger, hands-free spray trigger. Qwik-Set now offers the convenience of activating the spray trigger just once without having to continually squeeze the trigger while striping. Qwik-Set reduces hand strain and the fatigue associated with extended striping. Eco-Liner II incorporates a direct-drive industrial-grade diaphragm pump coupled to a 3.5-hp engine providing paint pressure up to 60 psi. Along with the original battery-operated Eco-Liner, all models use a standard 5-gallon pail as the paint tank, eliminating the cleanup and safety concerns of pressurized paint tanks.

CarpeTile Sport looks like commercial carpet, but is actually an antimicrobial polypropylene fiber tile that has all of the design flexibility of commercial carpet, but without all the liabilities. Because of its construction, it is impervious to staining, absorption of perspiration and indenting under heavy machinery. Its needle-punch construction also prevents the carpet from fraying, zippering or releasing fibers that can get caught in the machinery of your expensive equipment. Maintenance is easy, using the same procedures you would use with commercial carpet. CarpeTiles are available in four stock colors and are warranted for seven years.

Aerobic Club Steps are no longer just for step class. These days they perform double duty (and sometimes painfully so) as an exercise platform and bench for strength training, core development and flexibility. Kneeling or lying on a step can be particularly uncomfortable, which is why Power Systems created the Mat for Step. This thick 3/8-inch ribbed foam mat goes on top of the step platform to cushion the body while performing exercises that involve kneeling, sitting or lying on the step. It is not designed to be used while stepping or standing on the platform. The Mat for Step fits the Original Health Club Step® and Reebok Step®.
