H a r d w a r e & H o u s e w a r e s R e v i e w W e d n e s d a y, M a y 6 , 2 0 1 5 1 4 ECO-HEATER: WARM NEVER FELT SO GOOD ECO-heater has two popular wall-mount- ed heater models: the T400DS with inte- grated digital thermostat and heat reflec- tor, and the NA400S with heat reflector. Both units use only 400 watts of energy, providing a cost-effective way to warm up without cranking up the furnace. Made of ceramic, an ECO-heater is ideal for heating rooms varying in size from about 10 feet by 12 feet up to about 10 feet by 20 feet, depending on the con- struction characteristics and configura- tion of the room. These ceramic wall panel heaters use SilentFlow™ technology to operate qui- etly with convection heating to warm a room without a noisy fan. The unit, measuring less than 2 feet square, (23.5 inches by 23.5 inches), is mounted about an inch from the wall, which creates a convection heat channel where the air between the wall and panel heats up, rises and draws cool air from below. This process repeats until the room reaches the owner's desired temperature. Each ECO- heater unit also includes a heat reflector that prevents the warmed air from being absorbed into the wall and keeps it circulating in the room, further improving efficiency. Installation is simple, even for a novice. It takes approximately 15 minutes and common household tools such as a drill, level and screwdriver. To operate, the user need only plug the ECO-heater into a standard outlet. "Another added benefit of ceramic wall panel heaters is that they can be paint- ed with any latex based paint," said Christyana Hopkinson, ECO-heater Sales Manager. "Rather than be an eyesore in the way on the floor or on a table, they blend into the wall and enhance the décor." For lasting savings, each ECO-heater unit is backed by a three-year manufacturer's war- ranty and rigorously tested to meet the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) standard. ECO-heater has been gain- ing popularity in the United States over the past few years, being featured on the "At Home With Gary Sullivan," "On The House" and "Home Talk USA" radio shows as well as the "Today Show" and "I Gotta Have That!" television programs.

REAL MILK PAINT INTRODUCES NEW PACKAGING The Real Milk Paint Company, estab- lished in 1995 by Dwayne Siever, is now making its packaging even more user friendly. Not only is it making it user friendly, but it is unifying its labels, so that the paint and finishing products will be easily spotted anywhere in your store. Originally powdered Real Milk Paint was packaged in a bag, replaced a few years later by a chipboard box. Now, the powdered Real Milk Paint will be distributed in plastic cans made of post-consumer plastic. Dwayne Siever says the cans are for the convenience of the customer to mix and store the paint right in the can. Also included is a round agitator. Just pop open the lid, take out the plastic bag, scoop out the desired amount of Real Milk Paint, add the same amount of water, snap on the lid and shake. It is that easy! You will be amazed at how smooth and thoroughly the glass marble agitator mixes the paint. It is kind of like a larger size spray can. Real Milk Paint is fresh for up to two weeks without any special con- siderations. When you use it again, just shake, pop open and paint. Real Milk Paint comes in scrumptious colors: Blue Lagoon, Dragonfly and Arabian Night, just to name a few. The colors speak for themselves. However, the unique thing about Real Milk Paint is that the colors can be mixed to make an endless spec- trum. The world of color is easily at your doorstep. Don't just accept color that companies make – mix your own with Real Milk Paint. Need to make your fur- niture or walls look aged or antiqued? Just grab some Mocha (or other tinted) Burnishing Glaze. Apply over Real Milk Paint to add depth, highlight worn areas and make your project pop! The Real Milk Paint Company focuses on manufacturing unique, natural products to solve consumers' concerns with indoor living. Its primary objective is to make products that are low or no VOC's that are safe for you, safe for your children, safe for pets and safe for the planet. Visit Real Milk Paint at booth #7035. WHINK APPOINTS CURT LAMBERTSEN AS PRESIDENT Whink Products Company, based in Eldora, Iowa since 1947, proudly announces the appointment of Curt Lambertsen to its executive team as President. According to Whink CEO, Steve Throssel (previously CEO and President), the splitting of the position of CEO and President is due to the holdings structure of the Throssel family, which includes Whink Products Company. "When I assumed complete manage- ment authority for my family's business- es and holdings a few years ago, I was unable to play a supportive role to my satisfaction. Mr. Lambertsen brings a strong costing background for efficient 'Made in the USA' production and will develop the marketing skills we need to keep products moving off the retailer's shelves. Curt 's past experience includes 24 years as an efficiency expert at American Airlines. He decided to retire early and move back to his rural roots. His training in Kaizan, TQM and LEAN manufacturing should benefit our manu- facturing facility," said Throssel. Lambertsen's background includes a wealth of knowledge and experience in finance and operations management. He also owns and operates a certified organ- ic produce business. Per Throssel, "Adding Curt to our executive team was a breath of fresh air. There's something very positive about gardening, growing and har- vesting. This reinforced our decision that Curt will be a positive influence on our fam- ily's business." At the 2015 National Hardware Show, booth #4932 will highlight Whink's latest products as well as its full line of tried and true household solutions.
