In 2001, American School & University showcased some of the hottest products in the industry. Here are the 10 most requested, as determined by readers.
  1. Storage sheds GE Capital Modular Space

    Modulaire Enclosures are a new line of fiberglass structures that provide fast, customized alternatives to wood and metal sheds, industrial enclosures and other traditional space solutions. The units are available for lease or purchase, and are long-lasting, expandable, lightweight and weather-resistant. Circle 330

  2. Wall carpet Eurotex

    Concourse is a flatweave wall carpet for absorbing sound and enhancing privacy. It brings a distinctive architectural aesthetic and has a natural and understated look. Concourse is woven in a durable blend of nylon and wool and has a flame-proof unitary back. Circle 331

  3. Noise barriers illbruck

    The PROSPEC Barrier keeps offices and conference rooms quieter by blocking noise transmitted from machinery in adjacent work areas. The high-density vinyl is installed over substandard walls and is rated to block up to 26 decibels of noise. The ⅛-inch barrier is available in 54-inch by 20-foot sheets or 54-inch by 60-foot sheets. Circle 332

  4. Stainless-steel railing system HEWI

    The new pre-engineered stainless-steel railing system, inox, features a brushed finish, high-quality stainless steel for interior and exterior applications. Upright posts are pairs of stainless-steel flatbar with clamps for infill panels or multi-line infill rails. The system accommodates multiple rails that are curved and fitted during installation. Brass and bronze finishes are available for components. Circle 334

  5. Surveillance Kalatel

    A new model of its 7-inch CyberDome surveillance camera system has been introduced. A rounded bezel produces a tighter seal between the upper and lower parts of the housing, which increases the efficiency of the heater unit and prevents insects from getting inside. A new color, Smoked, gives a tinted gray appearance that hides the cameras position. A new molded rubber boot has been added to all pendant-mount domes to improve the seal to the threads and eliminate water-seal problems. Circle 335

  6. Stair treads Allstate Rubber

    A new line of vulcanized real rubber stair treads is available. The treads are available in three patterns — Ardeche, Kruger and Etosha — that are easier to maintain, as well as quiet underfoot. More than 37 colors are available, as well as custom colors. Circle 336

  7. Drinking fountains HAWS

Both are made from satin-finish stainless steal and have chrome-plated brass, anti-squirt and vandal-resistant bubbler heads. The pushbutton valves require less than 5 pounds to activate. Circle 337

  8. Access control Datakey

    The Guardian Access Control System is a stand-alone controller installed at access points (gates, doors, entrances) without the need for a computer network.

    New round, folding tables have enough space for 10 people and measure about 6 feet in diameter. The tables can be folded and moved by a single person through a 36-inch doorway. They have a 12-year warranty and have heights of 27 and 29 inches. Circle 339
