Redlands Daily Facts Friday, April 30,1965 -19 RADIANT HEAT — Knitted fabric containing a zig-zag resistance wire woven into nylon is ths essence of the Sun-Glo electric radiant heat panels introduced by The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company at a press conference in New York. Sun-Glo will be marketed initially in Ohio, the South Central states and California. From decorative panels New system of radiant heating from ceilings A new electric radiant heat-|custical material or lextural in- ing system that is rolled on much like wallpaper was announced recently by The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. Called Sun-Glo, the home heating system is applied to ceilings and sheds radiant .heat ing in the living room. A short time later, she was on the telephone frantically calling (he fire department as flames spewed out of the dryer. When the blaze was extinguished, firemen quickly determined its cause — spontaneous combustion of the rubberbacked throw rug as a result of the dryer's high operating tempera- i ture.

ON THE CEILING — Final step in applying the new Sun-Glo electric radiant heating panels by Goodyear is shown here; installers roll the entire surface of each flexible panel to assure its bond to the ceiling. Applied like wall- paper, the Sun-Glo panels provide a decorative and efficient home heating system. The embossed surface shown is one of the two basic designs. Caution to Redlands housewives Fire Chief issues warning for operation of clothes dryers A Redlands housewife placed I oratory have shown that rubber a load of laundered sheets and! kitchen on their various forms, even when dryer and returned to her iron- * capable of starting to heat spontaneously when subjected to fairly high temperatures. Tests have shown that the op- clothing and undergarments which frequently contain foam- rubber padding, rubberized baby sheets, throw rugs and carpeting, are capable of starting dryer fires, he said. "Like many spontaneous heat- erating temperature of laundry|ing reactions," he said, "this drying equipment, used both in i type does not by any means the home and commercially, is high enough to trigger a fire under certain conditions. "When operating properly," Chief Budd explained, "dryers present no hazard of fire as long as the materials being dried are such common articles as sheets, pillow cases, towels, and the majority of clothing." But many articles, such as cur. happen every time, and in fact is the exception rather than the rule. Some articles may go through the dryer many times and not show any signs of spontaneous healing. "The trouble is, we don't know exactly how or why this reaction takes place and there is no way to guess when it might oc which can be cut away to tailor the system for individual room needs.

Developed by Goodyear's Aviation Products Division as a direct outgrowth of airplane deicing equipment, Sun-Glo was described- at a press conference by E. M. Eickmann, division general manager, as a flexible "sandwich" consisting of two outer layers of thin vinyl and a filling of nylon net interwoven with zig-zagging, thread-thin resistance wiring. Attached to a source of electricity, the heating element emits waves of radiant energy which is converted to heat when it contacts objects in the room — furniture, walls, people. This is accomplished, he explained, in much the same manner as the sun's rays warm objects. Yet the system operates at only 100 degrees Fahrenheit — close to body temperature. Temperature In each room is controlled by individual thermostats, making it easy to eliminate the necessity of heating rooms where lower temperatures may be desired. The flexible panels are made in decorator and custom series, Eickmann said. The decorator panels range in size from 2-by-4 feet to 2-by-H feet, the custom panels from 26-by-50 inches to 3-byl2 feet. Each of the panels has a lead cr "pigtail" which is wired to a standard junction box. Installation is the "easiest of any heating system on the market," Eickmann said. It is a four-step operation per panel: drill a hole in the ceiling to accept the lead wire; apply mastic to the ceiling; put the wire through the hole and unroll the panel onto the ceiling surface; use a roller over the panel surface to insure that the entire panel surface bonds to the ceiling. In the case of decorated panels, a release paper on each panel protects against dirty hand marks or adhesive that might otherwise seep over the j s a shield, edges. The decorated Sun-G 1 o panels are installed abutting one another, either wall-to-wall or with a perimeter of ceiling left uncovered. Molding is used to finish the ceiling with a picture frame effect. Eickmann said the custom panels can be applied to t h e ceiling in a random fashion, then painted or sprayed with ac- are very high. Expected to join the present range of UL-approved panels is! a rigid backing material to! which the flexible panel has! been adhered.

Agricultural uses include heating pads to warm young animals and lessen their mortality rate, and similar pads for use by growers to speed seed germination. Kennel owners have found the pads useful when whelping delicate breeds of dogs during severely cold weather. West worst side of home for patio Changing family living habits have transformed the occasionally used patio into ona of the home's most lived - in "rooms." With its new importance in family life, the outdoor living room should be planned and built with care comparable to the rest of the house. One question is: Where to put it? West is worst. The afternoon and evening western sun will bake the area. A south or southwest exposure is excellent for an outdoor room if protected from the western sun. Most families prefer their outfoor living area adjacent to the interior living room, with a large window area uniting the two spaces, to assure heating economy and winter comfort, insulating glass in wood frames is standard. Stock windows of ponderosa pine are available with double glazing and factory built-in weatherstripping. Protection from prevailing winds is another consideration in locating a patio. It can often be situated so that the house Let of Flies If all the flies in the world but two could be killed, those two alone in six months could produce a family of descendants too large to count.

(UPI) — Lloyd Minshall went out to feed his pigs as usual Thursday only to find a 20-millimeter cannon shell in the hog pen. The shell, the type used for machine guns on Air Force jets apparently fell from an aircraft. The highway patrol said the shell's primer had been stMck but the shell did not fire. mond's Nursery Open House, ?* 27601 Redlands boulevard. Mr. Littlefield, famous for giving practical advice both understandably and entertainingly, will discuss gardening in Redlands area. He will also answer questions and assist with the problems of local gardeners. Through his lectures, and the articles he contributes to garden magazines and newspapers, Joe fiittlefield weaves his own bomespun garden philosophy. He regards gardening not as a task but as an adventure in enjoyment. He avoids the solemn, ponderous approach. With friendly informality, and deft touch, he discusses gardening fundamentals in a way that hold the interest of both expert and beginner. "Anyone" he maintains, "can become a successful gardener merely by following through conscientiously on a few basic Gondoliers on strike in Venice VENICE, Italy (UPI) — The gondoliers of Venice, fed up with motorboats, went on strike Thursday in protest against the machines that threaten to put them out of business. The 54 gondoliers who operate from St. Marks Square protested the issuance of a municipal docking permit for four motorboats. The pier has space for only 36 gondolas and the motorized competition is just too much to bear, the gondoliers complained.

Budd also warned that the ipontaneous heating reaction, although started by the heat within the dryer, can continue even after the articles are removed from the dryer. "This depends on whether or not the heat from the reaction can dissipate quickly enough after the article is removed." The fire chief recommended that housewives and operators of commercial dryers do not machine-dry articles containing rubber, but air dry them at normal temperatures. "All dryer fires, no matter how minor the damage, should be reported promptly to the fire department," he said. "Only in this way can especially vulnerable products be discovered and the manufacturers notified so that corrective measures can be taken." i— Country-) Club Vista A New High in Residential Living ...
