Designing Spaces on Lifetime with Wing It

In Designing Spaces | on April 16, 2012 | by Designing Spaces

The following segment aired on “Designing Spaces” on Lifetime Television. Joining the show was Sal Sisto to discuss Wing It.

Designing Spaces: As long as we’re on the subject of walls, let’s take a closer look at something that can help make your bathroom a safer place. You know, often disabled folks have a hard time moving around in the bathroom, so a strong, secure grip bar is very important to them. Here’s Andi Tillis with more.

Tillis: When it comes time to build a new home or remodel a home, most people think of beauty first. But you don’t want to forget safety, so joining me today is Sal Sisto from Wing it. He’s going to show us how we can safely install towel racks, grab bars and anything else that you wanted permanently mounted in your bathroom. Sal, thanks for being here.

Sisto: Andi, thanks for inviting me.

Tillis: Nice to have you.

Sisto: Thanks. Yes, we have the Wing It technology that we’ve been supplying to commercial industries for more than a decade now. In hotels they’re concerned over grab bars, towel bars, shower rods—especially our curve shower rods falling out, so we developed some fasten technology. As a matter of fact, this is one of them. It’s called the mater anchor; it’s the world’s strongest fastener. It will never loosen, so that means that whatever you are putting into a wall—no matter what occurs to it, it will hold tight. It’s a real simple process; it’s just a matter of creating a hole, typically with a drill bit, and inserting this into the hole. When it pops through on the other side, the wings will always make a connectible shape. And then, it’s just a matter of whatever you are attaching—screw it in tightly.

Designing Spaces: Now most anchors prevent the screw from coming out, this is actually preventing it from moving in any direction as well.

Sisto: That’s the whole idea, frankly every fastener in the world has something that causes it to begin failing and when we developed fasten technologies more than a decade ago for air and space, the idea was to illuminate that. So as we’ve done tests in millions of Wing It’s in the hospitality sector and other industries; the idea was to eliminate anyway you could fail. So what you’re looking at here really is the antisepsis of all that effort. It can never fail, never loosen.

Designing Spaces on Lifetime with Greg Wallace

In Designing Spaces | on April 15, 2012 | by Designing Spaces

The following segment aired on Designing Spaces on Lifetime Television. Joining the show was Greg Wallace from Suncor.

Host, Ted Brunson: Now, let’s talk about something else green: the lawn. Now, most of us know the negative aspects of herbicides. So, how do we still have a lawn without weeds, but not use herbicides? Well, here with a tale and how to have a more eco-friendly lawn is Andrew Craghan.

Reporter, Andrew Craghan: Every spring our attention turns to getting the house and yard looking their best for the summer and one area that often presents its own set of problems is the lawn. How we love that sea of beautiful green, an outdoor carpet of botanical perfection.

Designing Spaces: But then the unwanted guests arrive: the weeds. You’ve tried to kick them off the property before, but it seems like no matter how much pulling and spraying you do, they come back, often with a vengeance. Think Green met up with Greg Wallace from Suncor to talk lawn, weeds and how to control them with a reduced risk herbicide. Thanks for being with us here and for hanging out in this yard full of weeds.

Greg Wallace: Little bit, little bit.

Designing Spaces: So, most people would combat these weeds with like an herbicide right?

Greg Wallace: Correct.

Designing Spaces: And, most people are kind of aware that there are some negative effects with all herbicides on the market, right?

Greg Wallace: Yes. It’s funny you bring that up. One of the biggest misconceptions is over spraying. That’s where we kind of start at with that. Yea, a lot of people think, one or two it says use it; three or four must even be great. Well, that’s really not the case. Over spraying can create a runoff, where the chemical just sits on the ground and is eventually absorbed into the ground where it can stay for a significant time. And then, what that does is it’s burning the top of the weed but it’s not killing the root. So a couple days later, within a week or so, you’re going to get weeds growing back up.
