AIR-DRYR 1000 will effectively dry 1,000 cu. ft. of air, protect walls from mold, keep tools free from corrosion and rid areas of allergy-causing mold, according to the manufacturer, Davis Instruments. It uses natural convection to heat and move the air, and unlike traditional dehumidifiers, has no containers to empty or hoses to connect. The unit draws damp air into its polycarbonate base, then heats the air above the dew point and releases it out the top vents. It does not have any spark-causing parts — such as a switch, fan or thermostat; can run continuously and is safe to touch, the company says. A thermal cutoff shuts off the unit if airflow is impeded. The Air-Dryr is 13-1/2" in diameter and 4-1/4" high. It retails for $64.99. Contact: Davis Instruments, 3465 Diablo Ave., Hayward, CA 94545. Tel: 510-732-9229.

UVEX FITLOGIC is a new safety eyewear style that provides virtually infinite adjustments for face, cheekbone, ear and nose profiles. The frame design incorporates a cushioned, lightweight brow bar that adjusts to fit faces comfortably. Soft and flexible with spring-like action, it has enough tension to fit comfortably on wide faces and securely on narrow faces. The nosepiece rotates 360 degrees, pivots, and slants in and out to provide a precise fit for almost any nose bridge. In addition, the temple arms ratchet up and down, then click securely into place to provide a contour fit for cheek profiles. The soft temple tips lengthen with a precise sliding action to provide better behind-the-ear comfort. The Uvex FitLogic safety eyewear sells for $8 to $9 per pair.
