Editor's Bookmarks - November 2009

Each month RECORD reviews building product related web sites and blogs that might be of interest to our readership. We visit each site, kick the tires a bit, and share what it is about and how it functions. Please let us know if there is a site you've found particularly useful, well-designed, or easy to navigate. — Rita Catinella Orrell
This site is unique in that it isn’t intended to sell products but rather promote the racing cars and drivers that are sponsored by Laticrete, a tile and stone installation system manufacturer. Included is a season racing schedule, photo gallery, and live in-car videos from select races. A fun pit stop for racing aficionados who may or may not be familiar with Laticrete’s product line. For product info, specifiers should go straight to the main site at
The Watt Stopper Lighting Energy Calculator compares energy savings and paybacks from common lighting control strategies and is intended to help specifiers make informed decisions on the appropriate Watt Stopper/Legrand products for their project. There are two options: the Quick Assessment gives the potential energy savings for a lighting system retrofit or a new construction project, while the Full Lighting Assessment option gives complete documentation for a lighting plan that includes anticipated savings using lighting controls and updated lighting, anticipated energy usage, and ROI for an entire building. The Quick Assessment requires no log-in and results can be printed or emailed; the Full Assessment requires users to log in.
