New Jersey-based manufacturer honors the spirit of America’s Independence Day with new tradition of community support FSR Inc. Manufacturing

Woodland Park, NJ – July 3, 2020 – FSR, a leading manufacturer of a wide variety of infrastructure solution products for the audio/video, Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), education, corporate, hospitality, and government markets, is marking Independence Day by initiating a new tradition of community support. The New Jersey-based company will be donating to two local food banks to help those feeling the pinch of hardship during this time of elevated need, and according to FSR President, Jan Sandri, they will continue the tradition annually going forward.

“Celebrating our Independence Day will be different this year for every American and so it’s an appropriate time to launch a new FSR tradition,” said Sandri.  “I contacted our two local Food Pantries run by St. Agnes Church and the United Method Church that cover Little Falls, Woodland Park and Totowa, NJ, and asked what we could do to help. We were happy to comply with a donation to each organization and will continue this new tradition as our way of honoring the spirit of the 4th of July, a day that signifies coming together not only as a community but as a country.”

Sandri emphasized that we should appreciate what we do have, not dwell on what will be missing this year. “Let’s enjoy our family and friends in small gatherings while we celebrate our freedom, military, essential workers and being kind. We also want to take this opportunity to thank our friends, customers and colleagues for their friendship and support. We are grateful for each and every one of you.”

WHERE: DeKalb County School GA – Hawthorne Elementary

WHEN: February 2020

WHAT: Smart-Way Raceway System

WHO: Joshua Albertson from Nisewonger AV

Challenge

Hawthorne Elementary School recently renovated the Media Center. With new furniture, power and data were required at each collaboration table. The tables are used by both students and faculty and are essential for working in groups.HawthorneElem

The collaboration stations are now widely used in education; and maintaining a safe and ADA compliant space is also re- quired. The challenge was avoiding trip hazards in the media center. Nisewonger AV looked at many options for getting power and AV to the collaboration tables. The solution needed to be safe, cost-effective, and meet both power and AV requirements for the space. The FSR Smart-Way was the perfect selection and overcame all the challenges. 

Solution

Smart-Way was chosen for its very low profile and ability to carry data and power. Nisewonger’s install team appreciated the Smart-Way design, as well as the ease of installation. Nisewonger AV demonstrated the Smart-Way system by laying out the raceway for the Hawthorne Elementary principal. She was delighted at the system's low profile. And, at time of install, the Nisewonger team completed the installation in a few short hours.

Principal Lisa Limoncelli states, “The Smart-Way has been a game changer for our students and teachers. Hawthorne had a plan for use when we installed the tables with access to power and USB ports. Unfortunately, we did not have a way to execute that plan. We had several ideas but nothing that was a good fit. Fortunately, Nisewonger kept looking for a solution for us and found out about Smart-Way. Having an easy and low- profile way to bring power to the tables has enabled us to use them the way we had intended.”

Results

Nisewonger AV used 25’ of the Smart-Way Raceway with a 90-degree corner, bringing power and data to three tables with a total of four electrical outlets. The Smart-Way system provides the ability to have power for charging devices. This accessibility makes the collaboration space efficient for both setup and the collaboration session. There is no need to search for an outlet - AV and data connections are also avail- able through the Smart-Way system.

Principal Lisa Limoncelli stated, “Our main goal for installing Smart-Way was to have power in the tables we installed in our media center. The power would allow students to plug in their Chromebooks, tablets, etc. and work on projects together or independently. The power provided by the Smart-Way system also allowed teachers to conduct small group lessons with the ability to stream in video, use video conferencing and provide demonstrations on a large screen monitor that was connected to the tables. An added bonus we found was an additional meeting space with the ability to use the large screen monitor and go over documents and data with teachers, parents, therapists, etc. Overall, the Smart-Way system has enhanced our instruction and accessibility to in- formation by making the use of technology seamless.”

Looking Forward

Principal Lisa Limoncelli says, “The Smart-Way system has allowed teachers to pull small groups of students for individualized instruction and still have access to the same technology that their peers are using in the classroom. The Smart-Way system enables our students to work with technology collaboratively by sharing research, coding solutions, web-based learning, and interactive videos, without the inconvenience of being confined to the classroom charging cart.”

After the install was complete Principal Limoncelli was able to confidently recommended the system to other schools and even invited them to come and see it in action. Limoncelli adds, “Thank you Smart-Way System for unlocking barriers to technology and enhancing instructional practices for our students.”

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, Feb. 21, 2019 — NSCA, the leading not-for-profit association representing the commercial low-voltage electronic systems industry, is excited to announce three award honorees for 2019. Recipients will be honored during the 21st annual Business & Leadership Conference, held Feb. 27-March 1, 2019, in Tampa, FL.

 

Mark Dundas – who served on the NSCA Board of Directors for 11 years, including his role as treasurer and president – is the recipient of the 2019 Per Haugen Lifetime Achievement Award. Dundas’ impact on NSCA and the industry is felt every day. Shortly after he joined the Board of Directors, he launched NSCA’s first-ever accounting system. He also founded the NSCA Education Foundation and served on its Board of Directors until 2007.

His industry journey began in 1975, when he worked for 10 years for Industrial Communication Co. Nearly one decade later, in 1984, he founded United Communication Technology Inc.

“From the very start, Mark knew the industry’s future would involve integrating electronic systems,” says NSCA Executive Director Chuck Wilson. “His ideas and experiences shaped many of the processes that NSCA still follows today.”

In 1988, Dundas founded Tech Works after spending nights and weekends engineering technology solutions when customer requests called for specialized systems. He still actively runs this manufacturing company, which specializes in simplified audio and healthcare solutions for hospitals, clinics, and detention facilities.

Jan Sandri is the recipient of the 2019 NSCA Education Foundation Founders Award. A founding member of FSR, a women-owned manufacturer of solutions for the AV, education, hospitality, government, and houses of worship markets, Sandri has been instrumental in growing the company to 100+ employees and implementing green manufacturing processes.

In addition to serving the industry, Sandri also finds time to give back to her community. She has served as mayor of Little Falls, NJ; sat on the city council; served as the fire and police commissioner; and was the Little Falls Board of Health president. She serves on the board of Kindness Shared Happiness Squared, a charity that helps children in need, as well.

“Jan has been a major industry contributor for many years,” says Wilson. “She is an inspiration to professionals at all stages of their careers, as well as to women who are forging their own paths in the systems integration world today.”

The 2019 Volunteer of the Year Award is being given to Guy Grace, director of security and emergency planning for Littleton Public Schools and Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS) K-12 chairman. Grace was instrumental in forming PASS, which developed the Safety and Security Guidelines for K-12 Schools (currently in its fourth iteration).

“Under Guy Grace’s leadership, and with his experiences in school security, PASS has grown to become a national resource for schools, integrators, architects, and other professionals,” says Wilson. “Guy has been instrumental in helping create school security guidelines based on a tiered approach that takes individual needs, best practices, and available resources into consideration.”

About NSCA
The National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA) is the leading not-for-profit association representing the commercial low-voltage electronic systems industry.

Woodland Park, NJ -- November 20, 2018 – FSR, a leading designer and manufacturer of power, data and audio/video solutions for the contract office furniture industry, is introducing a simple, economical and elegant solution to camouflage and manage the unsightly gaggle of wires and cables necessary for today’s connected workspaces.

FSR Offers Two Continuing Education Courses Geared Toward Interior Designers

Courses teach how to blend communication and information technology into design elements for heightened presenter and user experience

 

Woodland Park, NJ (May xx, 2018) – — FSR, a leading manufacturer of a wide variety of infrastructure solution products for the audio/video, Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), education, hospitality, and government markets, is offering two new continuing education courses geared toward the interior design community. Both courses are approved by the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC); and the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), and Lourdes Collins, FSR Director, Furniture and Design Channel, has been certified to teach both.

According to Collins the courses are available to all, but specifically target Design Firms whose customers need to integrate information technology, audio / visual equipment and control devices into design elements for shared, heightened and convenient communications. “Today’s designers face a dual challenge,” explains Collins, “they not only have to provide high-performance high-design environments, but one that allows easy and reliable access to functional technology as well. These courses will expand their knowledge of collaboration spaces and connectivity options, and discuss alternative practices when designing and arranging furniture for successful boardrooms, hospitality venues, schools, or similar projects.”

Course descriptions

Designing Successful Technology - Rich Collaboration Spaces

This course introduces various types of collaborative environments and the challenges associated with the design of these rooms. It will focus on stake-holder input, design, layout and implementation and discuss how furniture choice and placement, technology integration, connectivity and equipment storage can impact the user’s experience and productivity.  Real-life examples of spaces and solutions will be offered throughout the presentation.

AV & IT Connectivity in Ceilings, Walls, Floors and Tables

This course will take the attendee on a journey from the traditional presentation spaces of yesterday, through the technology revolution driving the design of today and tomorrow’s Auditoriums, Classrooms, and Conference Rooms. Along the way the instructor will discuss how changes in AV & IT connectivity can impact– and improve - the experience for both audience and presenter.

“We are extremely pleased to continue to bring value and knowledge to the design community via these two new courses,” says Jan Sandri, FSR president. “Education improves competence and skill and is a powerful tool to strengthen any individual and elevate an entire profession. We are proud that Lourdes has been certified to teach these courses and are already scheduling classes.”
