HEALTH BEGINS AT HOME
After a long, tiring day at work nothing can be more rewarding than retiring to a comfortable house where everything is safe and familiar; clean and tidy. No one can argue that a peaceful and happy mind originates from a healthy body.
You need to consider many factors when designing and decorating a home in order to give it a cozy and homely feel. Light and wind direction, functional design, color selection, choices of furnishings and decorative items, integrating natural materials to create a soothing atmosphere; these are just some examples of the things that make a house a “home”.
The fact that residents cannot avoid being in close contact with interior construction materials makes it important that those elements be safe, durable, and, most of all, free from toxins. The present trend is that wood substitute materials are widely used in built-in furniture or decorative wall and ceiling fixtures, so choosing quality, non-toxic panel materials can result in a healthier home and healthier homeowners, reducing the risks of illnesses such as allergies or cancer which occur from mold spores or substances that are emitted as volatile fumes found in termite-control chemicals or as formaldehyde in some types of wood substitutes.
The Earth will be a much healthier place to live in if everyone realises their responsibilities to preserve natural resources and save energy. The Green Policy of the Mahaphant Group, the creator of innovative wood substitution products under the brand name SHERA, proves they really care. The company continually develops technology that cuts down on the utilisation of real wood materials in construction, with the purpose of creating new standards that encourage a reduction of energy usage and construction waste at a global level. Their refined production process that meets eco-standards in many countries around the world, not only saves more energy as well as resources, it also meets any and all needs as a wood substitute for a “Total Living Solution”.
In tropical regions wood used to be a plentiful and reliable building material. Its beautiful texture and natural grain gives warmth to all sorts of dwellings. As quality wood is becoming scarce due to high demand and rapid deforestation, wood substitute building materials are considered more beneficial and suitable than using the real thing. SHERA ply is the newest product that offers an alternative to plywood, MDF board, and particle board for interior solutions such as decorative ceilings/walls or in built-in furniture, with these distinguishing attributes…
If new furniture made from other types of wood-based panels is installed in a poorly ventilated area, it can slowly release toxins to the atmosphere, affecting occupants for years. SHERA ply is a wood substitute building material that contains no Volatile Organic Compounds or formaldehyde, a cancer-causing substance found in wooden components of housing construction. Moreover, SHERA ply is termite resistant, so harmful termite and insect control chemicals are not required. It is perfect for interior spaces that are frequented by members of your family.
SHERA ply is impervious to mold, even in constantly damp spaces like bathrooms and kitchens, or in humid locations such as beach residences or mountain resorts. It is no wonder then that it has been a favorite choice as an interior component in bathrooms, kitchens, and the balconies of numerous resorts – click here (http://www.sherasolution.com/sheraply/testimonials/lang:en) if you would like to read some case studies.
Homeowners who choose water, fire, and termite resistant SHERA ply need not worry about their furniture being damaged, or swelling, twisting, or falling apart when exposed to water. And unlike real wood that inevitably comes with some degree of risk of termites/wood boring insects, SHERA ply requires no termite control procedure.
Easy & Sure
One of the most impressive properties of SHERA ply is that it can be handled in every way just like common plywood. This tough material can be easily cut or drilled by normal woodworking tools, coated with laminate/veneer/wallpaper or, sprayed with hi-gloss color. What you can do with traditional plywood, you can also do with SHERA ply and rest assured that its aesthetics will last for years as it does not swell, shrink, or warp, even in humid circumstances or in outdoor use.
The Green Policy in use at SHERA ensures that SHERA ply contributes to environmental preservation. The product life-cycle is taken into account in all manufacturing processes, which use over 65% recycled materials. As a consequence, SHERA ply is ideal for GREEN building concepts, which emphasize selecting eco-friendly materials and reducing energy consumption. Furthermore, it does not contain Volatile Organic Compounds, guaranteeing better indoor air quality and thus, healthier inhabitants.
Using natural materials is another decoration choice to instill warmth to the home. In times of limited resources, an interesting alternative would be SHERA ply, a wood substitute that has been meticulously developed to suit various purposes in the home.
Wood is used in bedroom decoration to promote a relaxed feeling. Homeowners should make sure that wood substitutes used in this personal space are safe, clean, and toxin-free. There are many areas in your bedroom where SHERA ply can be applied, for example, walk-in closets, wardrobes, headboards and bedside cabinets
Bathrooms are subjected to constant dampness. Mold prevention can be done at the design stage by choosing a construction location for the bathroom where there is sunlight and good air circulation, plus selecting the right water resistant materials for use in its construction. SHERA ply is perfect for withstanding water and moisture, for example in applications such as countertops, under sink cabinets, and doors.
Kitchens and Pantries
Kitchens typically have wooden or plywood cabinets and shelves to store utensils, food and so on. In reality, by the very nature of what is kept on them, these cabinets and shelves are often infested with mold and termites or other insects. Regular contact with heat and humidity also makes the furniture swell or twist. This is where a high quality wood substitute like SHERA ply comes into its own: it can be an everlasting, built-in piece of furniture in the kitchen because it is resistant to heavy-duty usage, water, fire and wood boring insects, whilst keeping the aesthetic qualities and workability associated with traditional paneling.
