Lifts are key machines in any multi-story building and help save thousands of hours in valuable time, energy and effort. To ensure that they consistently work and serve you better, regular maintenance is very important as a lift that is not installed properly or maintained regularly is a ticking time bomb.
Having your lift regularly serviced is a legal requirement and rightfully so. A well-maintained lift not only works in tip-top condition but also greatly reduces the risks of accidents, faulty parts, shorter lifespan (and a hefty bill on unexpected repairs down the line).
In Malaysia, Lift and Escalator maintenance is governed …
Fire, broken down machines, electrical and motor vehicle failures can grind operations to a halt and cost businesses a lot of money.
When unfortunate incidents like these happen, companies would want to find the cause of the problem, fix it, and get compensated by their insurers as quickly as possible to resume operations.

New Coronavirus Strain - What Scientists Know
The Coronavirus makes copies of itself to spread and infect its target (in this case, human lungs). Over time, the virus is bound to mutate.
A new strain of viruses, code-named B.1.1.7, was recently discovered and traced back to the UK.
The mutation changes the shape of the virus's spike protein, which makes the virus a better fit for the targeted lung cells that they were designed to infect.
It is too soon to scientifically prove that the new Coronovirus strain is more deadly or is more contagious.
But common sense would suggest that due to the improved …

What is Antimicrobial Coating?
Antimicrobial coating is a process of applying a covering that consists of antimicrobial agents such as biocides or silver nanoparticles. It is mainly used on surfaces and devices to prevent the growth of microorganisms like bacteria, mold, mildew, or algae. It can continue to perform even through regular, repeated water exposure, and cleaning.
Antimicrobial coating is principally applied to different establishment walls, counters, housewares, outdoor facilities, HVAC vents, and other high-touch areas. Likewise, we spray them onto gloves, masks, carpeting, and textiles. Paint manufacturers also apply antimicrobial coating to their primer products and wall paints to constrain pathogen …
AGI have acquired 3D Matterport and are planning to send it to seventeen different countries around the world for the relevant authorities to capture the 3D-images of fire sites, water damaged sites, etc., independent of human intervention.
