C.R. Laurence—SurfaceMate Adjustable Angle Base Shoe and Shimming System
The horizontal taper lock design of C.R. Laurence’s (CRL) TAPER-LOC™ Dry Glaze Glass Railing System has made glass railing and windscreen construction so simple that installers have easily reduced installation time by 50 percent or more. Now, the company has added several new options to simplify instalment—especially on uneven mounting surfaces. Chris Hanstad, CRL’s railing systems brand manager, states, “To improve installation, we engineered and developed the SurfaceMate Adjustable Angle Base Shoe and Shimming System which makes the correction automatically.” As part of the system, CRL has also introduced the B5A Series heavy base shoe, which has a curved bottom to match the Angle Adjust Curved Blocks, and a redesigned interior channel with walls that provide all of the support of traditionally formed base shoe, but also reduce the weight of the channel.

Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies—Schlage GT-400 HandPunch
The new smaller, improved Schlage GT-400 HandPunch terminal uses the size and shape of each employee’s hand for verification, making it fast, efficient and easy to use. With a large LCD screen and programmable soft keys, perfect for interactive workforce management kiosks, the new HandPunch GT-400 provides a conduit for employee communication right at the terminal. Its Linux platform offers multiple time and attendance/workforce management software developers with easy interface options. Using biometrics to automate the collection of time and attendance data can reduce buddy punching (one employee clocking in or out for another), manual data review and correction time, and payroll error. The HandPunch GT-400 uses hand geometry—the length, thickness, and curvature of fingers or simply the size and shape of a user’s hand—to verify each employee. Hand geometry increases reliability and reduces privacy concerns over fingerprint and other biometric technologies. For more information, visit
