CREE Led Lighting
Compared to conventional technologies, Cree LED Lighting products can deliver the same amount of light using as little as 10 to 15% of the power. This huge reduction in energy consumption can enable consumers to save hundreds of dollars over the life of each light.
A Cree LED Lighting product, like the CR6 downlight, can replace a 65 watt light while using only 10.5 watts. In its 50,000 hour lifetime it will consume about 525 kilowatts, costing about $63. During that time, it will never need to be replaced.
A typical 65 watt light lasts for 2,000 hours. To match the light output and longevity of a Cree LED Lighting downlight, traditional lighting would consume 3250 kilowatts, and need to be replaced about 25 times, costing over $465.

Linoleum Sheet Goods:
This original resilient flooring invented in 1863 is made from such renewable materials as cork, wood flour, linseed oil, rosins (from pine trees which allows linoleum to be flexible), limestone and organic pigments applied to a jute backing (tile has a dimensionally-stable fiberglass backing). You can feel satisfied knowing that very little energy is consumed while extracting the materials used to make linoleum. Dubbed the “40 year floor” because of its durability, this all natural sheet (2.5mm thick 79″ wide) and tile (2.5mm thick, 20″ x 20″) comes in many exciting colors.
Cost effective due to long-life and low maintenance
Contributes to good indoor air quality; inherently anti-bacterial
Easy to clean and great stain resistance
Seams are water-tight when heat-welded – unlike vinyl composition tile (VCT)
Inlays and heat-welding provide design flexibility
Twice the indentation resistance of VCT
Installation: Linoleum sheet goods require skilled installers, and only factory-trained “master mechanics” are recommended for installation. Factory supplied adhesive (low solvent) is required for warranty. Ambering or “drying room film” on product will disappear when exposed to light.

Look for maintenance products under our Cleaning & Maintenance category.
The 100% FSC Pure designation of Navarre Timeless Hardwood assures you that all of the wood resources used to make each plank are harvested from well-managed forests as required by the Forest Stewardship Council.
Inspired by the 19th century Arts & Crafts movement, Navarre marries the craftsmanship of Olde World artisans and 21st century manufacturing technologies to create heirloom quality oak hardwood flooring. The distinctive character of each Navarre plank is achieved using a variety of antiquing and aging techniques and finished with natural oils to preserve the original beauty of the wood.
A natural oil finish cannot be compared with today’s more popular acrylic, polyurethane, and aluminumoxide finishes. These finishes protect the floor by forming a wear layer, in fact a plastic film on the surface of the floor. They scratch and get dull over time and cannot be spot repaired. Only a costly recoating of the entire floor is necessary every so often for complete rejuvenation. An oil finish penetrates the wood fibers to harden them while not altering the natural beauty of the wood. With no visual film on the surface, oiled floors are distinguishable by their elegant patina. They are easy to care for and are repairable. An oiled floor never need to be sanded, only regular applications of a Maintenance Oil are necessary to nourish the wood and bring the luster back.

As you plan your project, whether it is a brand new floor being laid in a new home, or the salvaging and refinishing of a family heirloom chair, put PolyWhey® into your plans to provide safe, long-lasting protection that will flatter your wood and take advantage of a recycled resource.
Whey protein eliminates the need for heavy metal driers and displaces both the toxic co-binders and carcinogenic solvents typically found in wood finish. Whey is a natural byproduct of cheese-making. Excess whey can end up on fields and in streams.
