NEW PRODUCT IDEAS

Start a Circuit

BCI Burke introduced a new product line for children ages 2 to 5. Circuit Play Beginnings combines play elements that focus on the use of all muscle groups, thereby helping younger children develop balance, hand-eye coordination and basic upper- and lower-body strength. The events are designed at ground level, so the risk of falls from excessive heights is reduced. The events are also a great complement to physical activity programs in early childhood settings. Circuit Play® Beginnings offers a great play value for the cost when compared to traditional post and platform structures. It may be used as a freestanding design or can be incorporated with an existing structure.

Automate It

Acu-Trol Programmable Controllers introduced its new ABSORB-ITTM —a CO2 Mass Transfer Absorption System that automates and increases the efficiency of CO2 delivery. This unit provides easy and efficient pH control and reduces overall CO2 consumption. This new unit is more efficient than standard pressure-feed systems, allows pools and spas to operate at lower pH levels and even reduces alkalinity buildup. The AKCO2 is self-contained and skid-mounted for easy installation and service and can easily be combined with Acu-Trol's AK110 and AK600 controllers.
