Paints can have a major impact on the overall aesthetics of a space; sometimes more than even flooring and furnishing because of the enormous square footage of the coverage.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), 9% of the airborne pollutants creating ground level ozone come from the VOCs (Volatile Organic Compound) in the Paint.

VOC refers to a class of chemicals which evaporates easily at room temperature. When these VOCs off-gas, they may cause a variety of health problems like nausea, dizziness, irritation of eyes and respiratory tract, and more serious illness like heart, lung or kidney damage and cancer.

Low and Zero VOC paints have little or no smog-forming emission. Use of high VOC content materials can cause illness and may decrease occupant productivity. These problems result in increased expenses and liability for building owners, operators and insurance companies.


Using the Low VOC or Zero VOC paint we can eliminate the detrimental effect of ground level ozone on human health, agricultural crops, forests and ecosystem. Healthy occupants are more productive and have less illness- related absenteeism.



LEDs are light emitting diodes, are a technology that allows for extremely energy efficient and extremely long-lasting light bulbs. An LED light bulb can reduce energy consumption by 80-90% and last around 100,000 hours. They even light up faster than regular bulbs (which could save your life if there are LEDs in the brake lights of your car).

Ecologically Friendly:

LED lights are free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent lighting bulbs contain a multitude of materials like e.g. mercury that are dangerous for the environment.

LED lights contain no toxic materials and are 100% recyclable, and will help you to reduce your carbon footprint by up to a third. The long operational life time span mentioned above means also that one LED light bulb can save material and production of 25 incandescent light bulbs. A big step towards a greener future.

Zero UV Emissions:

LED illumination produces little infrared light and close to no UV emissions.

Because of this, LED lighting is highly suitable not only for goods and materials that are sensitive to heat due to the benefit of little radiated heat emission, but also for illumination of UV sensitive objects or materials such as in museums, art galleries, archeological sites etc.

The Company has following Security Systems at its office and site:
