“In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.”

Top 10 Reasons to Choose Neenah Foundry Tactile Walking Surface Indicators
Tactile Walking Surface Indicators (TWSI) play a crucial role in better alerting those with visual impairments of upcoming street crossings and potential hazards. With more and more of these textured warning plates popping up across Ontario, it's clear that communities are committed to making their streets safer for people with vision loss.
Pedestrians and motorists will soon see an influx of TWSI’s in the year ahead. Effective January 2016, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) states that TWSI’s, also referred to as Detectable Warning Plates (DWP), will be mandatory on all new and repaired depressed curb sidewalks in Ontario.
Quench your thirst while "going green" with bottle fillers
When it comes to hydrating with water, people typically have three options- bottled water, water fountain or straight from the kitchen sink. For those toting their own bottles, refilling can be challenging and usually involves having to tilt the bottle at the perfect angle to avoid splashing.
Most Dependable Fountains, a leader in the drinking fountain industry for the past 25 years, has a solution with its Bottle Fillers and Bottle Filling Stations. Developed in support of the “going green” movement to reduce the number of plastic bottles in landfills (53 billion gallons of bottled water are consumed annually), MDF’s bottle fillers offer great tasting water at your fingertips.
