AirLock 100 – one solution for pleasant climate and mosquito repellent

Hard-wearing, water-repellent and easy to assemble

Do you know the feeling when you can’t sleep in a summer night because it is still so hot in the bedroom? When you open the window to provide ventilation quickly mosquitos come into your room and don’t let you sleep although it is comfortably cool now. An air conditioner is a suitable solution but what to do with the warm exhaust air the device emits? When you put a hose through an open window there, again, is the mosquito problem.

Actually, the solution is pretty simple. The AirLock 100 window sealing fits all normal window constructions with a maximum perimeter of 400 cm. Regardless whether they are small, large, pivot-hung windows or skylights, the translucent, hard-wearing and water-repellent sealing can simply be brought in place between the window and the window frame to regulate the air exchange.
A flexible venting hose reliably transports the warm air is reliably to the outside and remains on the outside. Even noises from the outside are much more muffled and less penetrating that you can sleep much better.

An ideal solution not only for summer nights

The AirLock 100 window sealing not only holds insects outside but also avoids that, for example, your cat gets stuck in a tilted window.
Of course, the sealing is not just suitable for air conditioners. You can use it through the whole year, for instance for ventilation dryers (laundry dryers) or dehumidifiers and when it gets too cold inside or when you have to leave the house you can close the windows without taking down the AirLock 100 after removing the venting hose.

Mould. Don’t let it come to this.

mould detecting dogsMould.

Mould doesn’t just look awful (the ugly blotches and dark stains that can cover whole walls are often the result of excess moisture caused either by high humidity levels, thermal bridges, poor insulation, cold walls or water damage).

And it doesn’t just smell awful (who could ever forget that biting stench that hits you when you enter a room where mould has been festering unnoticed for some time in concealed corners or cavities or behind tiles, panelling or dry walls or ceilings?).

And it doesn’t just cause you to catch your breath when you are unwittingly confronted with the dank, earthy odour that causes your eyes to sting and your senses to reel.

Mould is dangerous. It can not only cause wood, for example furniture and even the structure of buildings to rot and decay, it can also cause paper and leather to stain and weaken and it can damage goods, books, fabrics and prized possessions beyond repair.

But worse still it can trigger allergic reactions, cause severe skin, respiratory and other health problems – and it can kill.

This is why some countries, particularly the UK, the US, Canada and Germany, have taken a new approach to tackling this widespread problem and have started to use so-called sniffer dogs, dogs that have been specially trained to not only sniff out drug caches, explosives, contraband and stashed away cash, but also to sniff out mould!

Bookworms Beware!

the right humidity level for books

A good book is more than just a good read (If you find that the book you’re reading is a bad book, then put it down – no, better still toss it aside, because that’s the treatment it deserves. Like a telenovela or a corked wine which do not get any better the longer you watch it or the more you drink of it a bad book does not improve with reading).

A good book is a door to another world. A world sometimes so magical, so enthralling and so different to our own that we cannot wait to pick it up again and eagerly read on, plunging deeper and deeper, losing ourselves in its pages or picking our way meticulously through the weaving narrative or plot. A book can mesmerise and charm you, or it can captivate and revolt you. It can change your life forever or become a warm memory and an old friend. Books can be beautifully written, beautifully bound and beautifully illustrated. They can be inspiring or disheartening; they can be so funny and so sad that they make you cry. Books are mirrors of society and mirrors of souls. And they are proof of the power of the written word.

Which raises the question: “Where’s the best place to keep your books?” Read More

The Comeback Of Genuine Wooden Furniture

Wooden Dining-Room TableIf you start thinking way back you can certainly remember the old, dark and bulky wooden furniture which dominated lots of the living rooms of the generation of our grandparents or even parents. Usually they were used to accommodate the exclusive china set, the crystal glasses or the sterling cutlery. Unfortunately, these pieces of furniture often turned the living-room into a dark and rather unwelcoming place and the younger generation just thought they were hideous!

Especially after the second world war, during the time of the economic boom such heavy wooden furniture was very popular. It satisfied the need for security, tradition and coziness. Besides, it was a way to express the pride of having overcome the time of austerity after the war. Nevertheless, roughly since the 1990s, there emerged a counterculture which supported interior trends determined by a lot of glass, chrome and straight-lined design. Furniture made of natural materials like wood, cork or felt were labeled as old-fashioned and unhip.

However, during the last couple of years a new movement has started which implies more naturalness and comfort concerning furniture and interior trends. This new interior concept was also presented at the international furnishing show, IMM Cologne, which took place in January 2011. Due to the climate change people tend to once again set a high value on the use of ecological materials that are not treated with toxic paint or other surface coatings. The new interior trends 2011 have melodic names like “Emotional Austerity” or “Re-Balancing” and they all focus on sustainable and natural materials, modern design and state-of-the-art technology.

Long gone are the times in which you would be embarrassed to own those pieces of wooden furniture and you felt the need to hide them! Read More
