Handle Kit for the Aqua-Jaw Carry Vise by Omni Cubed


The new accessory Handle Kit for the Aqua-Jaw Carry Vise by Omni Cubed adds two more handles to each carry vise. With extra handles, four installers are able to safely carry heavier tops (two installers on each side of the top). Each of the four installers has their own pair of handles for easier lifting, and even distribution of the countertop load reduces worker strain, reports the manufacturer. The comfort-grip, foam rubber handle material is UV and ozone resistant, and also will not absorb moisture. The extra handles are an inexpensive upgrade option, and are quickly and easily added to an existing pair of Aqua-Jaw Carry Vises. The Aqua-Jaw Carry Vise and accessory Handle Kit are manufactured and assembled in the U.S., and are covered by a one-year manufacturer’s limited warranty, reports Omni Cubed.

Vetrazzo’s product line will be a natural extension of Polycor’s innovative offerings, such as the new 1-cm ultra-thin slab.

Pokarna Limited has added a number of new colors to its Quantra collection of quartz surfacing. Additionally, it is able to apply UV resistance to the surface, allowing it to be used for exterior applications in sunny, warm-weather environments. 

Pokarna Limited has continued to advance its Quantra collection of quartz surfacing, which is produced using high-quality quartz and the latest state-of-the-art technology.
