McCALLS Special Products (MSP) is taking part in IBEX to create an awareness of the company and its products. But given the list of its past achievements, including some of the world's major construction projects, it really needs no introduction to the building industry. Among others projects, MSP's post tensioning bars have been used in the British pavilion at Expo '92 in Seville, Kansai airport in Japan, the Channel Tunnel and La Grande Arche in Paris. The British company produces bar systems that can be used in dams, building wharves and jetties, storage structures and bridges. The quality control system has received 1S0 9002 certification. Another English British, Contract Developments will be displaying machinery for the insulating glass industry and products for the laminating of glass. Their laminating techniques will be demonstrated during the exhibition. Hotel room security is still a problem in many parts of the world, but Hongkong's Corkey Control Systems are promoting a fool-proof guest lock. Each XTRONIC 2000 lock contains a specific room code, and as each new guest uses his card key, the lock recognises the changed code, and resets its own code to match the new card. As well as preventing the use of previous cards, the system doesn't require a computer to keep track of room codes, electronics to be serviced, or wiring to the front desk. This makes the system cost effective and it is easy for staff to replace existing locks. With the growing importance of energy conservation, IBEX is the ideally opportunity for a company which supplies energy management systems. The Australian firm, EMS Control Systems, has introduced its equipment into over 50 Singapore government buildings, one of Perth's prestigious office buildings, Adelaide's 15 storey telecommunications building and the Royal Pines Resort on Queensland's Gold Coast. Electronic integrated systems for facility management, building automation, energy management, access control and weighting control are produced by EMS. Over 300 systems have been installed in Asia, mainly in industrial, commercial and institutional buildings. Sinogain Engineering, the agent of the German company Reckli, make elastic moulds and form-liners to reproduce concrete, mortar and gypsum for an almost range of building construction. The patterned surfaces make appropriate facades for houses, apartment blocks, bank, offices, hospitals and churches. Special moulds can be made for the renovation and restoration of old buildings. They have been used in the renovation of the Castle Bellevue in Berlin and the casino in Deauville. The fine stone filigree used in Arab countries can also be reproduced using Reckli moulds. Another German company that will be promoting textured form-liners for structured concrete in NOE-Schaltechnik. Chinese companies taking part on IBEX include Universal Marble whose, factory at Dongguah in Guangdong processes natural marble from Italy and Greece. Using machinery imported from Europe, the company turns out marble columns, furniture and sculpture in a wide selection of colours. If tiles or marble floors don't meet the specification, linoleum might be the solution. Hongkong's Linoleum and Contracting Associates are displaying Marmoleum, a linoleum style floor covering made in Holland. Made from natural products such as linseed oil, cork and wood flour, the end product comes in a bright range of colours suitable almost any floor surface. It is durable, fire resistant and can be heat welded to make seams watertight.
