  • Publication number: 20200158348
    Abstract: A mounting bracket mountable to the underside of the cabinet prior to the range hood and configured to engage and support the range hood as the range hood is secured to the cabinet. The mounting bracket having a support feature engagable to the range hood to hold the range hood proximate the cabinet while fasteners are sunk to secure the range hood to the cabinet. The mounting brackets are pre-positioned on the cabinet such that range hood is aligned with the cabinet when the range hood is supported by the support feature. The smaller mounting brackets can be more easily mounted in the proper position on the cabinet then the larger range 10 hood speeding the installation process and reducing errors.

  • Patent number: 10465366
    Abstract: A cleaning system for a sanitary fixture (e.g., toilet) can include a cleanser assembly, housing a compartment formed in the deck of the fixture in fluid communication with a waterway leading to the bowl. The cleanser assembly can receive a cartridge containing a cleaning product for insertion into the compartment and introduction into the waterway. The assembly can support the seat and cover of the fixture, and can have a low profile and curved shape that complements the corresponding shape of the seat and cover, and provides a balanced look that makes the assembly appear to be an integral part of the sanitary fixture.

  • Publication number: 20180318886
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and techniques for cleaning shower-enclosures are provided. In some embodiments, a shower-cleaning showerhead comprises a diverter housed in the showerhead, wherein the diverter is configured to divert water toward either a shower face of the showerhead or toward a cleaning nozzle of the showerhead. Before being expelled from the cleaning nozzle, water from the water supply may be mixed with cleaning solution, which may be pumped into the water supply or may be drawn in by the Venturi effect. In some embodiments, the showerhead may be configured to direct the flow of water along different flow paths in accordance with a shower mode, a cleaning mode, a rinse mode, and/or a pause mode. In some embodiments, one or more valves of the showerhead may be electronically and/or manually controlled.

  • Patent number: 9663961
    Abstract: Various embodiments of the present disclosure provide a curtain wall panel installation system. The curtain wall panel installation system of the present disclosure includes a plurality of rails each forming an elongated panel bracket spanning an entire edge or substantially the entire edge of a concrete floor slab of a given floor of a building. Each elongated panel bracket is mountable to anchors (such as embedments) cast in the concrete floor slab of a given floor of the building at discrete positions along the concrete floor. The elongated panel brackets enable the curtain wall panels to be laterally transported along the building façade to their respective installation positions, which enables workers to use a centralized crane location to hoist the curtain wall panels in preparation for installation.
