commercial concrete coatings

Innovative Commercial Coating Solution for Airport Infrastructure

Melbourne Airport (Asia Pacific Airport Corporation – Melbourne [APAM]) commenced a beautification program of works to the existing Melbourne Airport Terminals 1, 2 and 3 in the middle of 2016. As part of the program existing concrete infrastructure, including building facades, pedestrian bridges, elevated roads, carpark ramps and overpasses required painting to strict specifications.

The APAM concrete infrastructure beautification program required conformance to a challenging timeframe and could not interrupt airport operations.

PrimoGuard decorative coatings were chosen over competitive systems, due to a number of considerations including; no disruption to airport operations, fast application time, application in low temperature environment, and surety of completion to timelines,and previous experience and with PrimoGuard on airport bridges and overpasses.

Nanokote was engaged to supply and install PrimoGuard coatings to approximately 30,000 square metres of infrastructure, being building facades, pedestrian bridges, elevated roads, carpark ramps and overpasses.

The PrimoGuard application program required assessment of the existing concrete infrastructure (some of which was up to 40 years old), development of a detailed works program, and selection of optimal application methodologies (brush, roll and spray) in order to satisfy the customers requirements.

By working flexible work hours, throughout days and nights, with multiple application crews deployed to separate work fronts in order to avoid disruption to passengers and airport operations, Nanokote was able to successfully complete the beautification coating program within eight weeks.

Nanokote was able to minimize impacts to passengers and airport operations because PrimoGuard there was no requirement for the applicators to return to the work area more than once, allowing:

  • Application work to be undertake quickly
  • Minimal application interruptions due to changes and adverse weather
  • No disruption to airport and passenger traffic
  • No disruption to passengers and pedestrians in peak periods
  • Standard access equipment to be employed
  • Flexibility of moving from one work areas to another to suit operational needs
  • Substitute PrimoGuard for other coating systems on metal substrates.
  • PrimoGuard offers the following advantages to the airport :
  • Surface water ingress into the concrete is prevented, due to the PrimoGuard coating properties.
  • Existing lighting outside the Terminal entries became more effective due to the reflectivity of the coating (possibility to reduce the electricity use)
  • Concrete surfaces became easier to clean(possibly to reduce labour time)
  • concrete protective coatings less susceptible to damage from high pressure cleaning, due to the extremely strong adhesion of PrimoGuard to the concrete.

Nanokote has been working with government authorities and private asset owners, along with specifiers around the world for more than eight years as need for next generation commercial concrete coatings materials has expanded. Best practices to achieve cost efficient design, enhanced service life, reduced maintenance costs have continued to be focal points for major infrastructure asset owners.

PrimoGuard is a single coat system for anticarbonation and anti-corrosion requiring no priming that allows a single coat to be directly applied to dry or damp concrete.
This replaces typical competitor coating systems requiring three-coats: primer and two separate coats of acrylic applied 24 hours apart.

Single coat application offers for major savings when carrying out works on infrastructure where 24 hour operations exist and no disruption to operations and passengers are required.

Marketing For Fitness Businesses

The Art of the Ad: How to Drive More Visitors to Your Business Naturally

The internet is the perfect medium on which to advertise your business or its products or services. Statistics show that it reaches 98 percent of all 18- to 29-year-olds and 97 percent of all 30- to 49-year-olds. By creating and displaying highly optimized ads, you’ll attract new customers and gain a competitive advantage in your business’s market.

Use Multiple Formats

Don’t limit your online ads to text format, as you can drive more traffic to your website if you use many different types of ads. Image ads, for example, allow you to use bright colors, flashing buttons and cursor hover-over effects to attract clicks. With text ads, you can only motivate users to click using words. You can use words and visual elements in images, however, to drive better engagement.

Video is another effective ad format. According to one survey, 51 percent of advertisers say video offers the highest return on investment (ROI) of all formats. You can create video ads for YouTube by creating an account on the video-sharing website and uploading the video to your channel. Alternatively, you can pay to advertise your videos on YouTube by creating a video campaign in Google Ads. This will place your video ad on YouTube as well as other affiliated web pages.

Make Ads Look Natural

Users are more likely to look at, click and engage with an ad if it looks like a natural element of the website’s content. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has laws regulating online advertising, but you can still create natural-looking ads to achieve better results with your advertising strategy. Designing a banner ad in the same color as the target website’s background, for example, allows it to blend in. Because they feature the same color, users may assume the banner ad is a part of the website, thereby increasing click-through rates (CTRs).

Your ads should also be relevant to their intended audience. When creating ads for a website, use copy that resonates with the website’s visitors. If you’re creating PPC ads for AdWords, include the search keywords you are targeting in the copy. You want users to immediately connect with your ads when they see them. If your ads aren’t relevant, they’ll ignore them without taking action.

Marketing For Fitness Businesses

Marketing For Fitness Businesses

The Recipe for an Effective Ad

Creating an effective ad is a methodical process that requires several essential ingredients. In addition to being relevant to its intended audience, an effective ad must clearly convey what you are selling. Using gimmicky phrases and clickbait headlines in your ads may attract clicks, but they are low-quality clicks that probably won’t convert. Be honest and transparent in your ads and explain exactly what you are selling.

Your online ads should also be unique. If one of your ads features the same copy as another ad, it won’t receive many clicks. This is especially true for a lot of marketing for Fitness Businesses ads (which frequently employ the same buzzwords and promises that people are often wary of). Your ads must stand apart from your competitors’ ads, so design them with unique colors, copy and other distinguishable elements (and distinguishable services).

If possible, include a call to action (CTA) in your ad. This statement or phrase tells users what they must do to trigger a conversion. And don’t forget your landing page! Yout got potential customers interested if they clicked on your ad, now you need to convince them to stay with a great page. Your website is an incredibly important part of your marketing strategy – don’t think that’s it’s going anywhere, invest wisely in it.

Generate Exposure

Even if you have an effective, meticulously designed ad, it’s not going to drive sales unless people see it. If you’re going to display ads on your website, for example, optimize your site so that it ranks high. Known as search engine optimization (SEO), it attracts organic search traffic to your website, thus increasing ad impressions.

Another way to generate exposure is to create PPC ads using Google Ads or Bing Ads. Both services support text ads for their respective search results. After creating a text ad, you select the keywords for which you want it to appear. Both Google Ads and Bing Ads are cost-effective advertising mediums for businesses. These types of advertisements are also essential for local advertising. They reach the target audience and Google local service ads can help in your SEO campaign as well as reaching new customers.

MONITOR PERFORMANCE

Once your online ads are active, you must monitor their performance so that you can further optimize them. All online ads, regardless of format or location, have a finite lifespan. Users may grow tired of seeing a particular ad, or the copy may become stale or irrelevant. Either way, you should keep your ads fresh by monitoring their performance and making small changes to optimize them.

Statistics show that the average consumer sees up to 10,000 ads each day. For businesses looking to promote their products or services, this stiff competition can hinder their success. Using the right online ads, however, you can reach your business’s customers to sell your products or services.

How Houses Were Cooled Before Air Conditioning

The need to find a method for cooling a house in a hot climate is nothing new. With the use of systems for heating and cooling, Melbourne residents have demonstrated their willingness to look for effective solutions. Throughout history, there has been a range of methods and approaches for keeping cool.

How older civilisations kept cool

The ancient Egyptians hung dampened reeds over their windows and they also placed pots filled with water in their passageways. The ancient Romans used internal courtyards, sometimes with gardens and pools of water, to promote a flow of cooling air through their buildings.

In the Middle East, wind catchers were a common architectural technique that would improve airflow through buildings and help keep them cool. Sometimes these were used in conjunction with water pools, where the air would flow through the wind catcher down over the water where it would cool, before flowing through the rest of the property.

Mud bricks were a commonly used material for building houses and these act as a very effective insulator. They were often made with straw to help keep the integrity of the brick and to improve their resistance to weather. This ensured also that they were very good at keeping the heat out. In recognition of this, mud bricks are used quite regularly now in designs that are utilising passive specialised heating and cooling techniques.

In Malta, they recognised that by building their houses with very thick walls and small windows they were able to reduce the amount of heat that came into the property during the hot day. In Greece, they painted their properties white to reflect a lot of the heat that came from the sun. In Spain, fountains and pools as well as deep set windows helped to reduce the impact of the summer sun.

Modern cooling solutions in Melbourne

For specialised heating and cooling, Melbourne has always been looking for the best solutions. To deal with the hot summer sun we experience, there were some design innovations such as large sleeping porches and wide overhanging roofs that protected the windows from the sun. In addition, the windows were often made small to reduce the amount of heat that would be able to flow into the living environment. The large overhanging roof on the verandah provided protection from the sun, but also made it possible to keep doors and windows open even when it was raining.

For houses in Australia that had external verandah space, there was the development of the sleep out. Many houses in summer would tend to retain heat inside, particularly on nights when there was little air flow so that it would be cooler outside of the building. The idea behind this was to create a space on the verandah where people were able to sleep in the cooler night air while still having the protection of the roof. It was often surrounded by flyscreen mesh walls to keep insects away or was semi-enclosed with thin walls and windows to provide greater privacy. It was possible to hang hammocks or to have sleeping beds in the space.

One of the largest access points to a house were the doors. In Australia, there are many flyscreen doors that have been developed so that it is possible to leave doors open and at the same time preventing the entry of flying insects, particularly flies. Some of these had spring mechanisms attached to make them self-closing. Some of them had special metal frames built in to make them security doors as well. In other places, they used long strings of beads or long strips of coloured materials that would hang down from the top of the doorway. This allowed easy access and the flow of air while still preventing the entry of flies without the need for an opening and closing screen door.

The development of secure windows that could be opened as well as be fitted with a flyscreen ensured that it was possible to have windows open during the evening and the night when air temperatures had dropped. By having them open on different sides of the property, it was possible to have a cooling flow of air through the house.

Block-out curtains

Inside the house, people would use block-out curtains on the windows. This would prevent the heat from being able to flow into the living environments during the day. These curtains could then be drawn in the evening and the windows opened to allow the cooler air to flow through.

High ceilings

It was identified that hot air rises, so to help reduce the heat levels in living areas the ceilings were made higher in some houses. This is quite effective in allowing the cooler air to flow through the lower parts of these rooms.

Balconies

With the development of apartment blocks in the city, these were sometimes provided with balconies that could offer some protection for the living areas from the sun. In addition, some buildings took advantage of external blinds or awnings over windows that were able to reduce the impact of the sun.

Ancient cooling techniques are still being used

Some modern buildings are now being designed to take advantage of the cooling techniques from ancient architecture.

In Rajasthan, a modern architecture company developed a property with traditional exterior styling that provides valuable cooling protection for the building, open courtyards within the building to promote airflow, and a large pool of water on the lowest level that helps to cool the air through evaporation while providing a decorative element. It includes a double skin for exterior walls based on a traditional building method that provides a buffer from the heat. The use of these techniques substantially reduces the need for the use of modern air conditioning systems.

In Dubai, an engineer has taken the traditional wind tower design and is combining it with modern refrigerant technology to create a zero-energy cooling system.

Australian architects have been using passive cooling elements in designs for many years, particularly in the northern parts of our country. In Melbourne, there has been a recognition of the benefits of doing this to reduce the need for the use of cooling systems and minimise the costs of keeping a house cool in summer.

Evaporative Cooling Services: This is What You Need to Know

If you’re searching for a method of cooling your home that is well- matched to the dry Melbourne climate, consider evaporative cooling. This type of air conditioning will work in homes and residential buildings – all you need to do is ensure you can open a window or door to provide necessary circulation.

evaporative cooling repairs melbourne

How an Evaporative Cooling Service Works

Evaporative cooling uses pads soaked in water to cool your home. Hot air from the outside of your property is pumped across the pads, causing the water to evaporate and the heat from the air to be absorbed.

With evaporative cooling, the pads work as a filtration system. The entire process cools the hot air which in turn, creates an air conditioned effect. A fan is used to push the now cold air through a ducting system to move it to other areas of your property.

The Importance of Leaving Open a Window or Door

Because the cool air does not recirculate through the home as it does in other types of air conditioning systems, it is necessary to leave a window or door open. This provides proper ventilation and keeps the air circulating across the cooling pads.

Why Choose Evaporative Cooling?

When you use an evaporative cooling repairs Melbourne, you receive a constant flow of 100% cool, fresh air through your home or business. This is ideal for locations across the Melbourne region, and anywhere else that experiences long, hot summers.

An evaporative cooling service is also rather economical to run, especially when compared to the costs of operating other types of air conditioners. In fact, installing an evaporative cooling system can cut your cooling costs in half. If you’re looking for a way to save money while enjoying fresh, cool air in summer, this may be the option you need.

Evaporative cooling is also an environmentally friendly method of cooling your home or business, and requires much less electricity to run.

Installing an Evaporative Cooling Service Also Provides Great Health Benefits

There is plenty of important health benefits associated with using an evaporative cooling repairs Melbourne service. Those who suffer from allergies and respiratory difficulties will benefit greatly because this method humidifies the air and so does not dry out skin, sinuses or eyes.

The filtration system activated by the pads will also eradicate germs by removing them from the cool air, ensuring what you breathe is pure. This constant flow of fresh air will create a healthy, pleasant environment that will promote overall good health even for those who aren’t experiencing respiratory issues.

Evaporative Cooling Compared to Other System Types

Evaporative cooling provides distinct benefits over other types of cooling systems. It is simple to use and maintain, requiring less maintenance than other systems. As the unit adds humidity to the air, the continuous circulation creates a breeze that feels cool on the skin.

Evaporative cooling systems are very energy efficient. This means you will spend less on your monthly bill while conserving energy all-around.

When you choose an evaporative cooling repairs Melbourne, you will also have the choice of installing a window unit or portable system. A window unit will require simple maintenance measures to be carried out in the spring and autumn to prepare it for use during the summer and for storage in winter. If you’re using a portable unit, you’ll need to clean the filters and water curtains every few weeks, and remember to drain the unit at the end of summer.

fresh seafood melbourne

Fresh See Food in Melbourne

In today’s world market, fresh fish is available in almost any city, town or village. Modern handling and storage techniques have made it possible to pack and transport fish over extremely long distances leading to a rising increase of fresh fish suppliers. This enables people living in land-locked areas to enjoy fresh seafood Melbourne with nearly the same regularity as people who live close to the ocean or other bodies of water. Unfortunately, people who are new to purchasing fresh fish may lack the knowledge necessary to identify good seafood. Here are some simple steps to help anyone make a good seafood purchase.

A fresh seafood melbourne looks good, with shiny, slippery that hold together closely. A fish that is not fresh appears flaccid; its scales are less shiny and are sometimes dry and loose.

fresh seafood melbourne

fresh seafood melbourne

The eyes of a fresh fish are clear, shiny and bulging, while an older fish has eyes that are whitish/opaque and not so clear, because the membranes have lost moisture. Deep-sea fish can have bloodshot eyes because of the change in pressure when the fish is brought up rapidly to the boat. In this case the ‘clear eye’ assessment is not valid; it is best to judge a red-eyed fish by its firmness.

The body and flesh of a fresh seafood melbourne are very firm and the fibres hold in all the goodness and moisture. The body fibres of a not-so-fresh fish, or one that has been thawed, have begun to soften and release precious juices.

A fresh fish has pink or deep red gills, but the gills of an older fish are brownish in colour.

The smell of a salt-water fish reminds you of the sea, while a freshwater fish has a river smell reminiscent of freshly cut grass. A fish that is ‘off” always smells unpleasant.

Some fish have heavier bones than others, so keep this in mind when buying whole fish from a fresh fish supplier. For example, a 300 g flounder, which is a heavy-boned fish, will provide less flesh than a trout of the same weight, whose bones are lighter. The general rule is that flat fish have less flesh than round fish of the same weight, because the bones of flat fish are heavier.

In principle, the more delicate the fish, the more expensive it is. We at Renung Seafood are proud of being one of the top fresh seafood melbourne and worldwide. Contact us now to get the best deals and the freshest fishes.
