CAMPBELL, Calif., March 31, 2021 – Zircon Corporation, manufacturer of the original stud finder, announced its selection as a finalist in the prestigious 2021 Edison Awards for its innovative SuperScan™ K1 advanced stud finder featuring Target Control™ technology.
The Edison Best New Product Awards are among the most prestigious accolades honoring excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design, and innovation. After reviewing over 7,000 products and services, the Edison Awards Steering Committee and a group of ad hoc industry experts selected the Zircon® SuperScan™ K1 as a finalist to win either the Bronze, Silver, or Gold award in the Consumer Goods – Home Improvement & Safety Solutions category. “Being recognized in the 2021 Edison Awards is an exceptional honor for Zircon,” said Sharon Gee, Vice President of Marketing at Zircon Corporation. “Our technology resonates with our users’ needs and recognizes and solves their problems. Innovation is the name of our game.”
The all-new SuperScan™ K1, with revolutionary Target Control™ technology, is tuned to find wood wall studs and virtually eliminates metallic false positive stud indications when scanning over walls with hidden plumbing, conduit, straps, and brackets. Unknown objects hidden in the wall can fool ordinary stud finders into falsely indicating a wood stud when it may actually be detecting metal, plastic, wiring, or some other unknown object. These false positive stud indications create an obvious risk to the safe, efficient outcome of any project and are the bane of ordinary stud finders. With the SuperScan™ K1 advanced stud finder, users can finally have real confidence before drilling into wall surfaces.
Winners will officially be announced in Spring 2021, after a panel of over 3,000 judges, comprised of senior business executives and academic experts from around the world, cast their ballots.
