Finalist in Plumbing and Water Management in Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2011 Product of the Year competition
American Standard’s seated safety shower has a wide, contoured seating area made of durable acrylic. The product was designed for the elderly and the disabled, and it features a recessed front, accessory ledge for personal items, and a built-in armrest. There is a low 3-in. threshold and a built-in wrap-around grab bar to ensure confidence and safety. It is available in white or linen colors, and left- or right-hand configurations. The seat measures 60 x 30 x 37 in., and because it is supported by the frame and five adjustable feet, no additional support is required.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
