Counters are made of 30mm thickness water-resistant ply, and structures are of solid maple, ash or oak leg supports. Both the system’s base and counters are available in a wide range of sizes from 20 to 57 in. and come in nine different models.

Wood Jamb Liner
Vetter Windows & Doors is now offering a new wood jamb liner upgrade option for its current clad and primed wood double-hung windows. The upgrade option features removable hardwood inserts, which effectively conceal the vinyl balance system used in the tilting wood windows. The wood jamb liner inserts can be easily sanded and finished to blend in flawlessly with the rest of the window.

See-Through Bathtub
Omvivo offers the Le Cob from its Licciardi collection. It gives the effect of lying in a stream as the water cascades onto the pebbles below. It is made from cameo white Corian and 19mm glass.

Roofing Tiles
EcoStar introduces its newest roofing product, Seneca Plus tiles. The tiles are thicker and replicate the look of thick, hand-split cedar shake. They are comprised of recycled rubber and plastic.

Wooden Bathtub
The Full Tub from My Trading Company is made of solid teak blocks dried for six months to achieve a very low moisture level of only 8 percent to avoid warping, expanding and shrinking. Each of the solid teak blocks is locked together in an interlocking system that is combined with the high natural oil content of the teak wood to prevent the tub from leaking and drying out.

Glass Tile
Artist Erin Adams has teamed up with Ann Sacks to produce a new line of glass tile that is bold and colorful. The first selection is a graphic assortment of circles in varying sizes, and the second is a natural scene of silhouetted curling leafy vines. As with all of the Erin Adams products for Ann Sacks, these mosaics are customized and made to order, resulting in individual and totally unique art installations.

Folding Door System
The Jeld-Wen IWP Exterior Folding Door System combines style, customization and elegance of a French door with the benefits and features of a sliding door.

Acrylic Sheets
