VISTA, CA - Solatube International Inc. offers the new Solar Star®, a solar-powered attic fan. Unlike typical, non-motorized roof ventilators available in home-improvement stores, which depend on breezes to function, Solar Star operates completely on energy from sunlight that is continuously collected and converted to electrical power by a state-of-the-art solar panel. The unit features a sleek, contemporary design; a rugged metal housing; and an advanced, ultra-resistant solar panel for optimal performance. Providing up to 1200-square-feet of circulation coverage, the built-in motor exchanges air at a rate of up 800 cubic feet per minute to prevent attic heat from building up in the summer and help eliminate condensation in the winter. The unit's compact, low-profile design allows it to be installed anywhere air circulation is needed, including attics, garages and sheds.

2013 Top Products

In this space last year we said a lot more jobsites could be going paperless in the future—or at least be incorporating more mobile computing devices. Judging by this year’s results of the 2013 Top Products, we officially know we’re not going (too) crazy. It’s glaringly obvious that the market for accessing important information on the go has rapidly evolved in just one year and will continue to change. We wonder what’s in store for 2014, but for now enjoy the products that interested you—the reader of EDC’s print, digital, eNewsletter and, of course, mobile content—most in 2013.
