From One Industry to Another: How Uratex Helps the Local Furniture Company

uratex polyurethane foam roof furnitureUratex is known by many to produce high quality polyurethane foams that are used in various products. These products include pillows, sofa beds, and mattresses. In time, their foams were started being used in the industrial setting and are often seen in packages, cars, boats, and even in industries such as factories and movie houses. And even though Uratex has come quite far, the company still looks back to its roots: the local furniture industry.

Back in the Past

Uratex has been operating for more than 40 years, making the excellence of its products and services truly unparalleled.

It all began in 1968 when the enterprising Robert Cheng founded Polyfoam Chemical Corporation. As years passed, Polyfoam expanded as it became increasingly attentive and responsive to the growing needs of the furniture, bedding, footwear, garment, and automotive industries. These demands from different industries led Polyfoam to branch out and manufacture other products such as coil and unit spring, flat woven, and velvet fabrics for furniture and automotive upholstery, automotive radiators, leaf spring, and monoblock furnitures.

And even though it had expanded to meet the needs of a lot of industries, it has maintained its quality products and services that they have been offering from the start.

Uratex Helps Homes and Other Industries

Polyurethane foams produced by Uratex assist a lot of industries to grow, including automotive and even the entertainment and show business. There are also times when these foams are put in furniture like sofa or mattresses. But Uratex knows just how to do things because it has other specialty foams like the sensomemory foam, which is ideal for pillows and mattresses.

Uratex does not only help other industries because it can also help homes by promoting health.

Uratex Helps the Local Furniture Company

Believe it or not, there are only a few remaining furniture companies in the Philippines, and this is the reason why Uratex plays an important role in the local furniture industry. According to Dindo Medina, the Corporate Sales Director of Uratex Foam, Uratex is now among the few remaining weaving facilities that continue to supply and make the furniture industry alive.

Uratex’s Help In Promoting The Industry

One example is the Philippine International Furniture Show (PIFS) that happened las April 12, 2014. The PIFS trade show is a celebrated gathering in the furniture industry in the country, where established and internationally recognized local designers and manufacturers team up with exciting new talent coming through the ranks and to show to the world the capabilities of the Filipino design.

Because of PIFS trade show and other events where the country can exhibit its furniture products, the trade barriers will be relaxed which basically means that the influx of goods will be easier for the Philippine furniture industry.

By being one of the remaining and top businesses of the furniture industry in the Philippines, and by the rising exposure of different Philippine products to other countries, it won’t be surprising that Uratex will truly help the local furniture industry and the country’s economy.

Hospital Etiquette: General Rules that Visitors should Observe

uratex hospital mattress visit
You visited a patient – a friend or a family member perhaps – and chatted and laughed with them for quite some time. After a while, a nurse knocked on the door of your room and told you to keep your voices down. Of course, silence should be observed in a hospital. And if the nurse catches you lying on the hospital bed that is meant for the patient, then get off. Those are just a few of the many general rules for hospitals.

If you are unfamiliar with the others, read on so you’d know how to act when visiting a loved one in a medical center, whatever specialty they may have.

Visiting Hours Are Usually 9 AM To 9-10 PM

This is the usual visiting hours in almost all hospitals. The average time that an average person wakes up is 6 in the morning. However, people who are recovering from either an operation or sickness sleep a bit longer, so it makes perfect sense that visitors are only allowed at 9am until 9 or 10 in the evening to see their loved ones.

Smoking Is Prohibited

Hospitals, being institutions that cater to the needs of people who are recovering, prohibit smoking, an act that is harmful to both the one smoking and those inhaling the secondhand smoke. And because hospitals are air-conditioned, the smoke emitted from cigarettes will just circulate in either the room or the hallway. This is problematic, especially towards patients who have respiratory problems like asthma. So if you want or really have to smoke, you’re going to have to go to the designated smoking areas or outside the hospital premises.

Don’t Visit if You Have a Contagious Disease

Admitted patients are a lot more vulnerable to catching communicable diseases as compared to completely healthy people. That is why visitors who have any contagious disease must not visit until they fully recover themselves. After all, it’s common courtesy to do your best not to infect anyone whenever you have a communicable disease. These include cough, fever, runny nose,hea chicken pox, and measles, just to name a few.

uratex hospital mattress visit

Preferably Two Visitors at Most

Some may find this too restricting, but having two visitors at a time can be beneficial for both the patient being visited and the other patients.

A lot of visitors may be stressful for a resting patient, not to mention that there is a strong positive correlation between the noise produced and the number of people in a room.

It is fine to talk and laugh, but remember that a hospital is not a place of entertainment where it is fine to make noises that are loud enough to disturb other people.

Regularly Wash Your Hands

Since the patients that will be visited are still recovering, it won’t be surprising that their immune systems are still weak. To prevent them from catching whatever infectious diseases you might cause them, washing your hands regularly with either soap and running water or hand sanitizers that are located outside each hospital rooms, nurse stations, or pantries.

Conversely, if the patient has a communicable disease, you should wash your hands to make sure you don’t get any causative agent the patient has. Better safe than sorry.

Now that you know the do’s and dont’s in a hospital, your visits will surely be worthwhile, safe, and healthy for both you and the patient.

No Clapping ‘Til the End: 6 Basic Theatre Etiquette Rules

theater etiquette uratex acoustic foamThere is no other place like theatre. With its massive stage, iconic red curtain, and intricate patterns to hide the acoustic foams that cover the whole theatre, you can’t help but feel awed in the establishment that remains as the temple for the performing arts in the 21st century. And in such an elegant and classy venue, it’s only right that you act properly when you’re in it.

If you don’t know how, then here are the unwritten but quite obvious theatre rules that you have to follow.

Don’t Be Late

Tardiness is never an excuse in any events, especially in theatrical performances. As much as possible, arrive thirty minutes before the performance begins. It will also be best to stay with the group at all times, and wait for the ushers to help you find your seat.

Dress for the Occasion

There is no written dress code when attending theatre performances, and wearing a dinner jacket or evening gown is unnecessary, especially if it is just a simple performance. But then again, remember to look smart and presentable. You wouldn’t want to look like someone who’s at home, right?

acoustic foam theater etiquette cellphoneTurn Your Devices Off

Just like in any other theatrical performances and movie shows, it is not advisable to turn your phones and other handheld devices on. Aside from the fact that it’s distracting other audiences, using portable gadgets can also disturb the production and actors. This is also implemented to avoid taking a video without permission. After all, plays and musicals are best enjoyed in theaters, not on Youtube.

If you really have to answer your call, it will be best to leave the auditorium and only begin speaking to your caller once you are away from the rest of the audience.

Listen to House Announcements or PSAs (Public Service Announcements)

House announcements, sometimes referred to as public service announcements, are often said before a performance starts. These include turning off your phones, not eating, and not taking photos or videos. If taking photos is blatantly permitted, refrain from using flash or video light.

theather etiquette food acoustic foam uratexEat Before or After the Show

You are not watching a movie – therefore eating candies or chips can be very

annoying to other audience. To make sure that you won’t starve during the show, it will be best to have a heavy meal before the show. Or eat during the intermission or after the show. Just make sure not to do it while watching a theatrical performance.

Do NOT Sing Along

No matter how familiar we are with the songs, whether it is On my Own from Les Miserables, Defying Gravity from Wicked, or Music of the Night from The Phantom of the Opera, do not treat the musical like its karaoke night. Why? Because it can disturb other audiences, especially those intent on listening to the one on stage. Remember, be considerate to those who are listening as well as to those who were actually itching to sing along but opted not to.

Going to the theatre and watching a performance or two is a great experience. In order to keep it that way for you and your fellow audiences, it is best to follow these rules!

uratex polyurethane foam roof insulationPolyurethane foam can be found everywhere – at home, the bed you sleep in, and even to the car you drive every day. They are also used in furniture and beddings, footwear, and automotive. Aside from these, they are used as coatings and adhesives.

But other than acting as cushion, polyurethane foams can also act as an insulating device.

Insulations are often found in the following:

Cavity Walls

Instead of making the cavity between walls hollow, some homeowners put polyurethane foams instead. This insulates your house allows, the heat to remain in the house – especially useful for people living in countries with low temperature.

roof polyurethane foam uratexRoofs

Just like in cavity walls, polyurethane foams are placed in roofs to insulate the heat in the house. Not only does it insulate heat, polyurethane foams are also used to insulate noise.

Around Boilers

Boilers are, perhaps, one of the hottest parts of a vessel since it is designed to create steam by applying heat energy to water. Polyurethane foams are used in boilers so heat won’t escape from the room. Not only that, having a foam that acts as an insulator allows the conservation of heat.

Where are polyurethane foams used?

Because of polyurethane foams’ durability, buildings last longer and require less maintenance Polyurethane foams can also be made as rigid insulation panels. These insulation panels are light but strong, moisture-resistant, and easy to install. They make ideal materials especially during rainy season.

Insulation panels made from polyurethane foams are also cost-efficient. They can retain their energy-efficient properties for as long as the building exists. And as compared to other materials used in making insulation, polyurethane foams are much more space-efficient because of its flexibility, durability, and versatility. This allows architects and designers to maximize the use of internal spaces to accommodate other necessary parts and decorations. It is already a known fact that polyurethanes are very useful in terms of energy conservation. But other than its energy conservation properties polyurethane foams have a relatively small and increasingly diminishing carbon footprint.

Appliances

Rigid polyurethane foams are used in major appliances like refrigerators and freezer’s thermal insulation system.

It may be surprising or not, but marine vessels such as boats and submarines also use polyurethane foam for insulation. Although it is often used because it reduces durability and affects hydrodynamics in boat hulls, rigid polyurethane foams also insulate boats from noise and extreme temperatures. Not only that, it also provides abrasion and tear resistance, and increases load-bearing capacity while putting minimal weight.

Polyurethane foams play an important role – mainly in providing comfort to the homeowners who use it. But most of all, using polyurethane foams is cost-efficient as it allows a person to save as it can act as heat insulator.
