14/2/2020 - When you take on the project of buying and restoring
It was a 150-year-old farmhouse and we were lucky to get it. The house had been well cared for, Wholesale Inline Duct Fan Factory but nonetheless was showing its age. It had been more than a quarter of a century since it had been remodelled. The thing that struck us most about the two-story stone and frame structure was that it was so much different than the modern homes in a subdivision that had sprung up nearby. This house had tremendous character.

I am not a decorator and will be the first to admit it. Personally, I didn't see what was wrong with putting an orange bean bag chair in the living room. I guess it was something about traditional styling and an emphasis on forest green. My wife is only marginally better at home decorating than me, but she emphatically threw out the bean bag.

Fortunately, we have a family friend who is a near genius with decorating ideas. She can pluck items out of the trash and put them together in such a way that Better Homes And Gardens would include them in a pictorial feature layout. Home d&Pipe Fan Manufacturers233;cor is a hobby for her # and she jumped at the chance to take on the challenge of our new old house. I asked her about the bean bag and got only a chilly stare in response.

Our goal was to decorate the house a little differently. We wanted to reflect its character. We wanted the house to be just a little different. We wanted it different, but not too different. We weren't to the point of Japanese screens and seating ourselves with pillows on the floor. We called on our friend to help out.

When our friend got to the dining room, she suggested Roman blinds, also called roman shades. She ticked off the reasons.

+ First, they were classy and different. The fabric of the shades could be made from the same material as the table cloth and would go well with our antique dining room set.

+ Second, the dining room of the old house had non-standard sized windows. After measuring them she announced it would be hard to find curtains or blinds to fit them. Blinds, curtains or shutters would have to be custom made.

+ Third, the house has beautiful native oak woodwork. We had just finished stripping layers of paint accumulated over the past century. The wood had been conditioned, sealed and finished. It had beautiful graining. We didn't want to cover it up with curtains or drapes.

+ Finally, she could make them and save us some money. She is very talented at making curtains and shades.

Those reasons sounded good to me. Especially the last one. When you take on the project of buying and restoring an old house, saving money becomes a real test.

19/1/2020 - Little do any motor racing enthusiast realize the logistics

  It was with anticipation that every South African motor racing enthusiasts watched the first ever South Africa A1 Grand Prix race which took place between 27 - 29 January 2006 in Durban, Kwazulu Natal South Africa.

  Little do any motor racing enthusiast realize the logistics involved behind an event like this. The A1 GP, being a worldwide event, issued a safety and security standards manual with strict rules and regulations, which have to be adhered to. These rules and regulations apply to the electricians, medical evacuation team and even the stand-by plumber - all having to be available on-site within 5 minutes of notice.

  All A1 Grand Prix events are held in cities such as Monaco, California and Durban just to name a few. A clean racetrack is one of the factors included in the manual. Just imagine the disaster that will take place should any of the A1 racecars obtain a puncture at a speed of 300 km per hour.

  Tennant South Africa cleaning equipment was approached by the A1 GP organizers to sweep the racetrack prior to the training, qualifying and final events. As usual, the Tennant SA team was at their post at 5 AM in the mornings, sweeping the 3.2 km (2 miles) track.

  Two Tennant SA 800D rider sweepers were used to clean the racetrack. I must say that it does look quite funny watching these units sweeping away after witnessing the A1 cars speeding down the track the previous day. The Tennant Model 800D large rider sweeper is designed for maximum performance even in extreme conditions such as the rain encountered on 27 January 2006.

  These ride-on sweepers feature a massive steel frame and rugged T-beam super-structure that withstands heavy use and abuse over time. Huge steel bumpers protect the ride-on sweepers while sweeping close to the circuit's concrete barriers. The specially protected hydraulic system is designed to give and flex with movement and vibration making it ideal for uneven surfaces encountered with tar roads. Other features include a side brush that retracts on impact and a Thermo-SentryTM to sense excess heat in the hopper and stop airflow.

  The Model 800D ride-on sweeper cleans a 66 in. (1680 mm) path that lets it cover as much as 200,000 sq. ft. (1858 m2) in one hour. This ability was important, as we had to clean the narrow areas in front of the pit stops. A huge, 30 cubic ft. (.85 cubic meter) hopper allows up to 2,000 lbs. (907 kg) of debris to be packed in, so the machine saved non-productive time spent traveling to and from the dump site at the Grand Prix circuit. A standard multi-level dump hopper allows debris to be dumped on the ground or into dumpsters or trucks as high as 6 ft. HVAC Axial Fans Manufacturers (1.82 meters), which was the method used at the Grand Prix.

  Has many productive options such as a vacuum wand, a blower attachment, and a deluxe cab which provided the operators with safety and protection during the cleaning of the Grand Prix track.

  The Tennant SA cleaning team conducted this sweeping task with precision, professionalism and a sense of humor. One of the ride-on sweepers even did a "doughnut" to the delight of the crowds in the main stand, leading to a standing ovation.
