Taking Measures for ADA Compliancy

It’s difficult to engage in a discussion about the American Disabilities Act without sounding like I’m trying to use scare tactics, because there really are no ‘winners’ in an ADA compliancy court case. People deserve to have equal access to public spaces, no matter what. On a vertical counterpoint, businesses must comply with regulations in order to sufficiently serve the public as well as avoid legal liability. Each party, therefore, endures inconvenience on their respective side of a legal incident. Between 2005 and 2013, over 16,500 ADA compliancy lawsuits were filed across the country.  In July 2008 alone, 204 private ADA…

Visit Us at the National Restaurant Association Show

This week finds Premier Mounts at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) show in Chicago, Illinois, and my anticipation is embarrassingly high. With a variety of exhibitors dangling fresh fare and craft beverages, a showcase featuring famed chefs like Anne Burrell and Graham Elliot, and a Sunday Keynote speech by Earvin “Magic” Johnson- my inner monologue has a version of me singing “The Sound of Music” while running through the Swiss Alps. It’s embarrassing. On a serious and more professional note, it is our pleasure at Premier Mounts to exhibit at this year’s NRA show, demonstrating our expertise in mounting solutions…

Fire Safety and Plenum Space: Unraveling the Cable and Uncovering the Facts

The fuel load of certain types of plenum rated cable insulation can rival that of gasoline. In heavily cabled plenums, that’s like placing a gallon of gas within the plenum for every 10 to 30 feet of cable tray (…) Fire retardant jackets on new cables will generally protect against ignition for at least ten minutes of fire exposure, depending on its temperature, (but) worn, heat aged, slit or damaged jacketing that exposes cable insulation to a fire can ignite within minutes.  –Avoiding a Dangerous Journey, by John Michlovic* Plenum space. If you don’t know how relevant it is, it…

Take it Outside: How to Protect your Outdoor Digital Signage

When investing in an outdoor digital signage display, several factors dictate what your purchasing decisions should be. First and foremost, you’ll need a commercial-grade display due to the length of time you’ll need it running (while I love pizza and a TV marathon as much as the next couch potato, my home display simply isn’t meant for daily 14-hour run times). Here are the Top 5 things to look for in order to not only protect your investment, but receive the highest ROI possible on your outdoor dynamic digital signage display. Display Decisions: Outdoor TV or Enclosure? The easiest choice…

The FPS-200 & FPS-300 Slide into Homeroom

Today’s educational delivery system is one of adaptation. It evolves with each generation, using cutting-edge technologies and teaching methods in order to graduate advanced learning each year. Yesterday, I watched my nephew play an educational interactive tablet game about Dinosaurs- followed shortly by a TWO-HOUR conversation in which he schooled me on every type of Dinosaur. From every Period. From memory. Which made me feel… inadequate to say the least. It’s this interactive style of learning that puts my 9 year-old nephew at an advantage over my (now dated) collegiate education. With the concept of interactivity comes the need for…

The Rapid Assembly of Rental & Staging

Fewer industries run as a better-oiled machine than the world of Rental and Staging. Much like a symphony composer (but with a more haggard schedule and better taste in 90’s Grunge Rock)- leaders of R&S know what instruments it takes to create the exact ambience their audience craves. The criteria for good product is simple: It needs to be universal, it needs to maximize component compatibility, it needs to be safe and durable, it must be quick and easy to setup and teardown and it needs to provide for the high demand of cutting-edge final presentation. To anybody in the Rental…

Value in Customer Service: From Our Front Door To Yours

The day I started at Premier Mounts, the Human Resources Manager walked me through the entire building, starting at reception, through multiple business offices, manufacturing and the warehouse, and looping through the various conference rooms. I couldn’t tell you how many hands I shook that day, and I felt an overwhelming sense of dread as I realized that I was going to be calling people “Hey, you,” for longer than I’d like to. As time passed, however, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it became to remember the names of these people who placed so much emphasis on making…

Order Up! Dynamic Digital Signage in QSR

When it comes to the foods we eat, we’re getting more and more aware of the variety of options on the market. Both in our kitchens and on our evenings out, we’re expanding our menus and palates to push away from ketchup-smothered mystery meat and toward selections like Asiago-infused 100% Angus beef with Peppered Bacon and Rosemary-Garlic Aioli. These days, menu items like these are no longer exclusively for “reserved seating,” but available on menu boards of quick serve restaurants (QSRs) across the globe. From the bun to the tortilla to the salad bowl, consumers are paying attention, and QSRs…
