Advance Tabco's Heavy-Duty Slotted Cook Line Wall Shelf The DT21 series Heavy-Duty Slotted Cook Line 21-inch-wide wall shelves feature 18-gauge 304 stainless steel 1½-inch square tubing. The 1¼- inch spacing between tubes allows heat/steam to rise through the shelf when mounted over cooking areas. Shelves mount securely to the wall with stainless steel plate brackets, which ship loose to match wall stud location. Operators can specify factory-welded shelf brackets but those will require prints. www.advancetabco.com 3.

Armstrong Flooring's Luxury Vinyl Tile Armstrong Flooring updated its Parallel 20 and Parallel 12 lines of luxury vinyl tile. Parallel 20 has a 20-mil wear layer, and Parallel 12 has a 12-mil wear layer. Featuring a variety of neutral colors with the appearance of real wood, stone and other contemporary visuals, Parallel 20 is suitable for areas with high foot traffic, while Parallel 12 is meant for light commercial perfor- mance. Both feature high-performance coating that resists scratches and stains and are low VOC. A commercial UV-cured urethane finish elimi- nates the need for polishing and spray buffing in some applications. www.armstrongflooring.com 5.
