DENTCO’s Annual Spirit Week Gives Back

Maintaining an ongoing tradition, the DENTCO® team recently celebrated their annual summer spirit week at the company’s headquarters. Activities and events focused on building camaraderie as well as nurturing the company’s sense of community.

The theme of DENTCO’s spirit week this year was “Oscar Week.” Resembling the elegance of the Academy Awards, the office was decorated with stars, a Hollywood backdrop as well as photographs of celebrities and classic movie references. The hallways of the office space were even lined with red carpet.

“With a team full of incredibly creative individuals, it is difficult not to look forward to this event year after year. Our energy and enthusiasm continues to grow as our company expands and we develop new relationships,” said DENTCO President Scott Milnes.

From delicious barbeques to collaborative team building exercises and attending a Lansing Ignite soccer game, the week was filled with engaging and memorable festivities for all to enjoy. The week concluded with the presentation of the “Denty Awards,” where different members of the DENTCO team were recognized for their unique and valuable contributions to the company’s culture and overall operation.

“Each team member is unique and presents their own strengths, which truly makes DENTCO special. Our team building activities focus on building lasting workplace relationships and enhanced communication, which ultimately has made DENTCO an incredibly enjoyable place to work,” said Sales Administrator Christine Shipps.

The House of Promise is a nonprofit organization founded to rescue victims of human sex trafficking and empower them to heal. Through education and support, The House of Promise aims to restore the lives of those who have suffered incomprehensible abuse and guide them on a journey to a brighter tomorrow.

Shari Montgomery, founder of The House of Promise, visited the DENTCO office to speak about her experience working with victims of sexual exploitation and providing refuge to help them cope with the trauma they have endured. Montgomery educated the DENTCO team about human trafficking’s prevalence within the United States, warning signs as well as additional measures to combat the horrors of such crimes.

“Giving back to the community is a quintessential aspect of our mission at DENTCO.  We are committed to bringing positive change and safety to our world and will continue to show compassion and support to organizations in need,” said National Sales Director Teresa Phelps.

As a company, the team raised $4,252 in donations for The House of Promise. In September, the DENTCO team will be volunteering at the House of Promise to paint, replace carpet, and perform grounds work.

ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2019: Air Curtains Allowed as Vestibule Substitute

Posted By Administration, Monday, July 29, 2019

ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2019: Air Curtains Allowed as Vestibule Substitute

Good news for building owners, engineers/architects, and HVAC contractors who can now save energy, construction costs, and space in commercial facilities with this latest approved code addition.

Doorway air curtains were approved June 25, 2019 as alternatives to vestibules on most commercial building entries in the upcoming ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2019 “Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low Rise Residential Buildings.” The professional association’s approved addition requires that the air curtain performance be tested in accordance with ANSI/AMCA Standard 220 to ensure it provides a minimum 400-ft/min. airstream velocity at the floor.

This is good news for retail, restaurants, healthcare, hotels, office, and other facility owners, because they can now opt to forego the expense of vestibules in new construction, or repurpose significant square footage for more productive uses by retrofitting existing vestibules. Consulting engineers and architects, who previously were hesitant to replace vestibules with air curtains due to inconsistent code language, now have the support of ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2019 which will be published this fall. Furthermore, HVAC contractors will see a spike in air curtain installations to accommodate facilities looking to prevent energy loss through their main entries and meet building codes. Air curtains also protect against the infiltration of outdoor air, fumes, flying insects, wind, and dust through open doorways, and contribute to occupant air comfort.

The addition’s “Air Curtain Effectiveness” task force was sponsored by AMCA (Air Movement and Control Association–International), an Arlington Heights, Ill.-based trade association dedicated to certifying manufacturers’ air performance statistics.

“This is the most significant recognition of air curtains as an effective energy conservation device since the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) approved air curtains as vestibule substitutes in 2015.”

– David Johnson, president of AMCA, and director of engineering for air curtain manufacturer, Berner International, New Castle, Pa.

Inclusion in ASHRAE Standard 90.1 required more than eight years of air curtain research and presentations. The IECC code and the high-performance overlay code, the International Green Construction Code (IgCC), helped initiate the path to Standard 90.1 acceptance by allowing AMCA-certified air curtains as substitutes for vestibules.  However, ASHRAE’s mechanical, building envelope, and other subcommittees required additional research of real-world air curtain situations such as wind loads and building pressure differentials on an annual national-weighted average basis. Subsequently, the subcommittees accepted AMCA’s commissioned research represented by three third-party lab studies by Montreal-based Concordia University professor, Dr. Liangzhu Wang. All three studies proved air curtains that maintained a minimum 400 ft/min. airstream at the floor (as per ANSI/AMCA Standard 220), were equally effective or better than vestibules in buildings 3,000-square-feet and larger.

Decades ago, two-door vestibules were code-mandated to save building energy. Theoretically, they created an airlock as one door would open and close before the second door opened. However, the emergence of automatic door opening sensor requirements, smaller space-saving dimensions, and other infringements on vestibule effectiveness, helped make air curtains an attractive energy-saving alternative. On average, air curtain-protected doorways were proven to save total building energy usage by a factor of 0.3-2.2% more over that of vestibules, according to Wang’s studies. This illustrates they’re equal or more effective at separating outdoor and indoor environments regardless of door opening styles or cycles.

Ferrandino & Son Acquires Enterprise Signs, Securing an Immediate Presence in the National Sign Industry

(Farmingdale, NY – July 15th, 2019) Ferrandino & Son, a leading national facility maintenance company, has acquired Enterprise Signs, a national sign maintenance and installation company.

“Enterprise Signs provides an immediate launching pad for our existing clients who want to expand their relationships with Ferrandino & Son,” said Peter Ferrandino, Ferrandino & Son CEO. “Having the chance to leverage an in-house, full service sign company with more than 30 years of experience will allow us to become a more robust solution for our existing client base.”

Enterprise Signs was as much an acquisition of intellectual capital as it was the client relationships that came with them. “The onboarding of more than 5,000 vendor partner relationships in the signage industry creates an immediate presence for our brand,” said Brandon Ramsey, President of Ferrandino & Son. “This acquisition gives us a seat at the table today with clients looking to partner with a full-service sign company.”

Enterprise Signs will be located in Audubon, PA, approximately 25 miles of Philadelphia, PA. There, they will occupy office space on the campus of Ferrandino & Son’s national operational headquarters, which encompasses nearly 50,000 square feet of office space. They have also transitioned to Ferrandino & Son’s technology platform FAST and have bolted on the national project team, which numbers more than 40 Project Managers across the country.

As an inhouse solution for Ferrandino & Son, Enterprise Signs will bring a specific expertise to the signage space. With a strong background in on-demand and preventative maintenance, their presence across the country with more than 5,000 vendor partners will allow them to be an immediate solution for everything from rebranding and national rollouts to handling large and small mergers and acquisitions along with new construction services.

This announcement follows the acquisition of BlueSky Paving just two weeks ago, further strengthening the Ferrandino & Son brand in the multi-site location facility space.
