PROFILE Products LLC Successfully Launches PS
(PS cubed) Design & Selection Tool During IECA
BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. (March 3,
2009) -- PROFILE
Products LLC generated considerable traffic and interest during IECA's EC09
aided by the launch of its new Web-based program, Profile
Soil Solutions Software - known as PS³ (PS cubed). PS³, a design and product
selection tool, enables design professionals, agencies and contractors to access
engineering and agronomic assistance for erosion and sediment control quickly
and easily. Profile representatives demonstrated the new software to hundreds at
EC09 in Reno, resulting in over 100 new users registered on the Web site. During
three scheduled PS³ group demonstrations, three lucky attendees also walked away
with brand new iPods.
Combis of Waste Management in Chicago, Ill., Doug Wimble of SprayGrass
Landscapes in Riverstone, Australia and Jim DeGrado of CDI Technologies located
in Denver, Colo., participated in live group demonstrations and each were iPod
live, group demonstrations of PS³ generated considerable booth traffic and
requests for additional information," said Michael Robeson, M.S., P.E., CPESC,
technical services manager for PROFILE Products LLC. "PS³ is a free service and
is the first, and only tool that integrates different products to develop
agronomically sound erosion and sediment control site solutions. It's an
easy-to-use tool that helps determine the best solutions based on geography,
climate and future land use, as well as supplies necessary product documents and
guidelines all in one location."
launch of the new software was a recent feature on ESCN.TV--the online news
source for Erosion & Sediment Control News. Storm Water Solutions
also highlighted the growing interest in PS³ on their Web site located at www.estormwater.com.
PS³ will help designers, contractors and engineers address five critical design
considerations for immediate and long-term vegetation:
Soils - PS³ offers directions on proper soil collection for testing and also
interprets soil test results and prescriptive application rates for various
Species Selection - Soil properties, climate, moisture regimes, slope aspect,
future land use and a host of other considerations are entered into the program
to determine best plant species for sustainable growth.
Erosion and Sediment Control Material Selection - Following soil and agronomic
considerations, site conditions for slope lengths and gradients, ditch and
channel flow hydraulics, banks, levees, shorelines, wetlands and more are
Installation - Provides detailed installation guidelines and CAD details for all
erosion and sediment techniques including HECP, RECP and SRFRs.
Inspection and Maintenance - Provides inspection and maintenance documents for
each of the erosion and sediment control disciplines.
