A HEAD WITH A MEMORY
Shown with ground support flange
EVER HEARD OF A SPRINKLER HEAD WITH A MEMORY?
SAFE-T-LAWN, INC. HAS ONE!!
And we call that memory AUTOMATIC RESET REVERSAL
This completely new and revolutionary control makes the SAFE-T-RAIN P-400 the most tamper proof and vandal
resistant sprinkler head ever offered to the industry.
In operation the desired arc of coverage is infinitely adjustable from 600 to 3600 by setting the reverse dogs to the desired
positions. If, after the reverse dogs are adjusted, the rotor head is manually forced to turn beyond the set limits, the head
becomes free turning without causing damage. When the head is again permitted to rotate by its own drive it will return to
the original pre-set limits.
THIS IS NOT ALL
THE SAFE-T-RAIN P-400 HAS MANY OTHER FEATURES:
The rotational speed is easily and infinitely adjustable while the unit is in operation.
The nozzle trajectory angle is adjustable from 9 to 250 to suit wind conditions or change the radius of coverage.
TheSAFE-T-LAWN WIPER SEAL Automatically expels dirt and foreign material during up and down motion
of the sprinkler. The main bearing is sealed to prevent sand damage.
Ground Support Flange
This underground support flange, available for all models, provides additional stability.
Model P-400 Safe-T-Rain is equipped with a normally open hydraulically operated
valve for automatic cycle control.
Full or part circle
Constructed of plastic rubber
and non-corroding metals.
Nozzles available from
4 G.P.M. to 20 G.P.M.

For all its evident diminitive nature and fhe realization that there is
some aspects of plan and space and surfaces that appear to be pretty
austere, this house stood against very careful scrutiny. It is a very
straight from-the-ground structure built on a straight from the intellect
floor plan. This might be construed to be adverse comment, but the
opposite is intended. A lot of comment on this fine house is not needed
as it is fully understandable and we feel most carefully detailed and
St. Mary's Episcopal Church Renovation, Jacksonville
There was some impression that this remarkable accomplishment in
recycling of a simple and not particularly distinguished old building was
almost exotic. Much more study and discussion revealed an
extraordinary creative and whole work of art. Altjurors began to realize
they were seeing the design of all the elements in terms of the way the
congregation and the minister felt about what happened there. The

A most competent solution indicating strength in statement and
execution. A refreshing and courageous approach to a renovation
Sawgrass Golf Villas, Jacksonville
A jury worries about its judgements when it looked at a dozen
condominium projects and becomes more, critical as their sameness as
feeble variation is revealed. They remember that such projects in
Florida remind them of hundreds of others in California, Texas,
Dayton, Tulsa, etc., etc.
This project seems to have cast off a lot of the tiresome pattern and
perfunctory planning and from floor plans to site plan to the
refreshingly simple way the screen porches fit into the roof slopes was a
It is hoped (and prayed for) that from this very adequate solution
will come more positive thinking about this troublesome design
problem. We hope Florida can find something in this field that has
more indigenous character.
Sawgrass Racquet Club, Jacksonville
Robert C. Broward, Architect
The plan of this simple building quietly reveals a high level of sensitive
space allocation. The very simplicity of it seemed a major
accomplishment and one readily sees that any juggling of the enclosed
spaces (Pro-shop-vending machines-toilets and storage) would disrupt
the seemingly perfect solution. The client is to be complimented for
allowing the architect to do the structure on this plan with the same
simplicity, order, and complete respect and understanding of the
material just wood. There was some regret among jurors that the roof
spout and lighting fixtures were so ingenious approaching something
"Medical Plaza" Office Building, Plantation
Donald Singer, AIA, Architect
This building, from the very essential nature of its plan, the easily
understood and logical structural system, the strong and uncluttered
exterior, was immediately recognized as fully honest and pretty brave.
The color and solid form of the exterior does not create a particularly
inviting atmosphere, but once inside, the use of color, open space, and
natural light adds surprising sparkle.
It takes a sensible client and an architect who is willing to be modest
and unsensational to accomplish this clearly solid answer to the current
regrettable tendency to "shine" at all costs to tamper with structure
- to be whimsical where seriousness is the correct answer.
Miami-Dade Community College, Downtown Campus, Miami The jury must assume that siting of this important building in the
center of activity was a difficult political accomplishment. They also
Ferendino/Grafton/Spillis/Candela Architects feel it is quite evident in the siting and ground plan that it is an
extension of the streets and walks and therefore, successfully fits the
"Community College" connotation. It is a pretty formidable stack of
concrete but it does not exclude or forbid the passage of any
The raising of the building on a low platform and the attendant
excellent low pitch flights of stairs and good subtle break in a flat street
and land situation. There is sufficient space in the green areas to set the
building apart and sizable trees might be a good compliment and relief
from the cold big angles and heavy projecting upper masses.
This is a most important building to the urban area of the city and the
idea of the "see through" and "walk through" approach to the design is
most commendable. The jurors appreciated the architect's desire to
create an urban park but felt the design solution somewhat
overwhelmed the individual with its monumental and architecturally
forced shapes. The making of a cent opening meeting space within
the building is a grand. gesture to the program and the obvious focal
point of the site. The jurors expressed regret that a pair of escalators
became the focus of this space.
Katz Residence, Ponte Vedra Beach
Ted Pappas, AIA, Architect
First look at this home produced several pointed objections. All jurors
felt the "flying lumber" space modulator beams over the upper deck
was just an unnecessary worn cliche. Then there was apparent violent
disparity between the simple and well articulated floor plans and the
surprising broken up roofs and interminable shedding. These are the
only negatives. The house is so essentially wood and the way it is used
is so honest that one is not surprised at the good judgement in all
details and furnishings. It is quite clear that the house was carefully
designed for the client and his special needs and wishes. Very little
architects concert in this one.

By William R. Brockway
Should everybody live in a house that has been individually
designed by an architect?
Curiously enough, the answer to this question, given in a
recent press release by the prestigious American Institute of
Architects, is something less than a resounding "yes." It was
more like a carefully qualified "no."
The reasons are simple. For one thing, there simply are not
enough architects around to give every American family a
uniquely designed home. For another, the housing needs of
many families can be adequately (if not too imaginatively) met
in other ways.
The AIA points out that an architect will not necessarily be
able to give you a bigger house with more space for less
money. Frequently, you can satisfy these "mechanical" living
requirements more economically by buying an older house or
one of the mass produced builder houses, if, and this is a very
important if, you are willing to put up with the shortcomings
that may exist in either of these alternatives.
If, however, you want something extra in a home an
expression of yourself, a home that is individually designed to
fit in one special place, or a home that will fit your family's
particular style of living and provide a setting of continuing
enjoyment then, an architect is your answer.
Why should you pay a design professional a sometimes
substantial fee to provide a service that is "included in" the
ready built house package. The truth is, you pay for design
services whether you buy a mass produced house or design
your own. The cost is less in the mass produced house, because
it is spread over 10, or 20, or maybe 500 houses just like your
own. The flaw in this procedure is twofold. First, you buy a
house (and remember that this is, for most people, a lifetime
agreement) that is designed exactly like 10 or 20 or maybe
500 others. Hopefully, not on the same block. The second
problem is that not one of these houses will fit the individual
requirements of the owners. They have been designed first, to
sell, and second, to suit a mythical "average" family.
Unfortunately, there is no such thing. If, after careful
consideration, you feel that you would really be just as happy
in this sort of house, then, by all means, omit the architect
from your plans.
Assuming, however, that you really want a home designed
specifically for you, what can you expect the architect to do?
There are five distinct services that the architect provides his
clients in the design and building of any structure:
1. Schematic design The architect, after many interviews
and much snooping into the family's way of living, space
requirements and likes and dislikes in a house, will prepare
rough design sketches for the owner's approval. These are
designed to show what the house will look like, how it will
work and what it can do. The schematics are reviewed and
revised by the architect and owner until all concerned are
satisfied with the design.
2. Design development From the schematics, the architect
will.prepare definitive design drawings, outline specifications
and preliminary cost estimates. The drawings will show actual
room sizes and spatial relationships; the specifications will
describe the materials to be used; and the estimates will give a
fairly accurate idea of what you may expect to pay for the
house, IF built as shown and described. At this point, the
house is designed. The size, shape, color, smell and look of the
house have been agreed upon. But, in order to translate your
paper dream into brick and glass and wood reality, it is
necessary to prepare yet another set of documents.
3. Working drawings and specifications These are the
documents the contractor must follow if the house you and
your architect have labored over so lovingly and long is to look
anything like you have envisioned. They tell him how big and
how small, where and of what materials everything in the
house shall be built. Working drawings and specifications have
been likened to a musical score which the musician (read
contractor) must follow to produce the melody the composer
(read architect) had in mind. Without them, you have no
guarantees that the work invested in the design stages won't be
4. Bidding or negotiation The architect assists the owner,
sometimes through competitive bidding, less often through
direct negotiations, to obtain the best price possible for the
construction of his house, exactly, as designed.
5. Construction During the construction of the house the
architect serves as the owner's representative in dealing with
the contractor. He will make periodic visits to the site to check
on the progress of construction and whether the house is being
built as designed. He reports his findings to the owner
periodically and handles the paperwork involved in changes to
the contract and approves, for the owner, the contractor's
periodic requests for payment. At the end of construction, the
architect will make a detailed final inspection of the project
and recommend its acceptance.
These are things an architect will do for you. They all add up
to one thing an individually designed home for you only,
uniquely suited to your family, your way of living, your likes
and dislikes. Don't expect your architect to compete with the
mass builders on a square foot basis, but do expect him to
regard your need for a home as an individual, unique design
problem, and to come up with a solution that will be yours
