          The ProFlex 230LTR Leather Knee Pads are built tough with real genuine leather to provide excellent traction and knee protection from fire, slag and sparks. The leather is abrasion-resistant from the toughest work surfaces and wraps over the top of the knee pad for extra durability and a longer life for both your knees and the knee pads, even for jobs that require working on your knees daily. They are the most comfortable leather knee pads made with nitrile rubber (NBR) foam padding that keeps its shape over time and helps avoid common knee injuries. Built slightly wider than traditional knee pads, they deliver added coverage and comfort. The non-slip dual straps easily adjust to most knee/leg sizes and the buckle closure keep the knee pad secured in place all day long without restricting circulation. An anti-odor treatment protects the inner fabric to keep your pads as fresh as the day you bought them. Because they are made with soft leather these are the best work knee pads for construction, flooring and concrete applications. Also, the resistance to heat, fire and abrasion makes for great welding knee pads.

          Now I like this cap, light - but warm versatile/reversible knit that is stretchable and fits well under a hat, hoody or just everyday ware. The fact that one side is not only a 'Hi-vis lime' for added safety be it work or at play is one plus, but the sides themselves can be used for changing the warm effect and comfort. Best plus for me is that I can keep my head covered for warm driving etc., and pull my hood up outside for even more warmth and back again.

          This is not the everyday looking fan, 'distinct profile' in flat white, a 'true design statement'. The blades are made of ABS, and I was impressed with the air movement at six levels. The LED has good output and lights the room nicely. Now the install is straight forward for the bracket, hanger and wiring, one note was that these blades mounted with two screws on top and the blade wraps down and around the mount (1/4) and a screw on the bottom - well mounted. There is both a 12 in. and 40 in. lead wire with connectors, 6 speed full function remote control.

          How many amps does this fixture draw?

          I am trying to buy an extension cord to run three of these fixtures, and want to get one that is heavy-duty enough to safely run them with. 2 tubes @ 40W each multiplied by three fixtures equals 240 Watts, but extension cords seem to be measured in Amps as well. Checking the Lithonia site did not turn up any more detailed specs than the Home Depot site, either! Any electrical gurus out there that can answer this?

          Answer: 
          Well, unless I forgotten my math, Watts/volts=amps. One 40 watt T-12 at 120 volts = 0,33 amps times two .66 amps.
          Do the same for 32 watts T-12.
          You can find the charts or calculator's online, type in "watts to amps" or amps to volts. Most of these site will many difference calculators to do the math or list the formulas.
          That's it in a nut shell.

          Answer: 
          Yes, bleach should have no effect on the sprayer itself. In fact, you could spray anything but, corrosives type liquids that effect the tank, hose/tubing, wand and pump.
