Hot Stuff & Cool Services – November 2020
Putting fire safety at the source
Safer Alarms are compact and easily applied wireless heat sensors with companion alarms that detect fires where they are most likely to occur – at an outlet. But they aren’t smoke detectors. They are wireless fire and heat sensors that are placed in areas where fires most often begin. The alarm is triggered when the temperature hits the “danger zone” of 150 degrees F or higher, before smoke is even detected. The sensor adheres to the wall above any outlet and remotely communicates to the alarm placed elsewhere so the alarm will continue to sound even if the sensor is destroyed. The multiple-year battery life means no chirping or replacing for years, and the compact size allows placement in nearly any small space. For more information and to order, visit SaferAlarmsInc.com or call 914-552-7088.
Rest easier on the road
Developed over 16 years ago, the Fuel Bucket Bed from Brooklyn Bedding is designed to absorb up to 60 gallons of diesel fuel in the event of an accidental fuel leak, helping to mitigate a potential environmental hazard. To make the mattress more readily available to truckers, Brooklyn Bedding recently launched TruckingMattress.com – a new online resource that now makes the bed available on demand. Along with the Fuel Bucket Bed, the new online destination also offers the company’s best-selling mattresses for sleeper cabs, including: the Brooklyn Aurora Hybrid, Brooklyn Signature Hybrid, Brooklyn Arctic Dreams, and Brooklyn Wanderlust. Because Brooklyn Bedding custom crafts every mattress it sells, and also produces nonstandard sizes for the RV industry, the company can manufacture virtually any mattress to specification and roll pack/ship it in a box to any destination in the United States.

Natural tension and pressure relief
Does increased stress and anxiety from the current demands of the world have you struggling with headaches, making it hard to get through your day? It’s possible that Zok can provide you with some natural relief. Zok is a Class I medical device designed by health care practitioners to naturally and noninvasively reduce tension, stress and pressure. It works by stimulating the tympanic membrane, which activates the trigeminal nerve and a number of cranial nerves inside the head through light inner ear pressure modulation. According to the manufacturer, the easy-to-use device provides instant alleviation of pressure and tension, which are associated with the symptoms of headaches and migraines. A full refund is available if the device does not provide any degree of relief. To find out more and to order, visit ZokRelief.com.
