19 17. Viridian Reclaimed Wood's Sustainable Engineered Hardwoods Viridian's engineered flooring line is precision milled and end-matched to 9 / 16 -inch thick and 5 inches or 7 inches wide. It is available in various lengths with the average being 36 inches. A thick 3.2 mm wear layer allows for multiple re- sandings. A UV Urethane Matte finish (15 gloss) is standard, but oil finishes are also available. The entire line is FSC-certified, meets stringent CARB2 standards for indoor air quality and can contribute points toward LEED credits. Sourced from American-grown hardwoods, including white oak, walnut, maple and hickory, there are several color options available in each species, including natural browns, gray tones and whitewash. 18. Visual Graphic Systems' Virtua Virtua is a self-service kiosk that walks customers through placing an order via interaction with an attached tablet. A virtual brand ambassador engages customers through voice and move- ment. Coupled with the ability to play videos and presentations, Virtua can provide consistent suggestive selling in a small footprint, including promotions and add-on items as well as calorie and nutritional information. Brand ambassador options include a live actor filmed on a green screen or a CGI/custom animated character. 19. Watts Dead Level Trench Drains Watts Dead Level Trench Drains incorporate a frame-anchored design that provides structural stability. Self-aligning channels and anchors tie directly to the structural frame and enable level installations. The flanged channel connections create solid joints and ensure proper alignment. Drains come in standard 4-foot sections, while 1-foot straight and combination corner/tee sec- tions provide flexibility, eliminating the need for cutting in the field. All systems ship with plastic construction covers to protect grates and keep the drains free of debris during construction. 20. Wolf-Gordon's Prefinished Wood Veneer Wall Coverings Constructed from a range of nine authentic wood species such as walnut and sapele, Wolf-Gordon's new BildenWood wall coverings produce a uniform wood grain appearance and are flexible enough to wrap around curves and columns. All products in the line are prefinished with a matte lacquer coating that inhibits fading from sunlight and eliminates the cost involved in sanding and finishing.
