Taiwan Excellence joins the final leg of Philconstruct, the Building Construction Material, Equipment and Sanitary ware Industry trade fair, on November 8 to 11, at SMX Convention Center & World Trade Center in Pasay City.
Philconstruct, recognized as the biggest construction show in the country, is credited for having helped define the landscape of building and construction in the country for over two decades by creating a space for manufacturers to showcase industry-related items such as building materials and components, construction equipment and materials, building accessories, construction accessories, and essentials, interior design materials, exterior design products, and construction machinery.
As one of the largest and much anticipated exhibitor, Taiwan Excellence brings with it a selection of brands that has been recognized as among the best that the country has to offer. Taiwan Excellence is an organization that reviews and recognizes all Taiwanese products and grants awards to products that are found to be exceptionally superior. During this year’s Philconstruct expo, Taiwan Excellence will not only be exhibiting their most elite brands on site, but they will also be hosting a seminar discussing the strengths and benefits of their featured brands. Carrying the theme “Smart Constructions for Smart Cities”, this afternoon-long seminar will be held on November 8 at Meeting Room 10 of the SMX Convention Center.
Business-to-Business Meet and Greet
During the trade fair, ten Taiwanese companies will be at the forefront of the Taiwan Excellence exhibit. These forward-thinking innovators in the Asian construction industry will also be represented by various stakeholders to hold prospective business meetings with potential clients and other interested parties.
Each one of these ten companies is a proud recipient of the Taiwan Excellence Award, bestowed upon them for outstanding performance in four aspects: Research and Development, Design, Quality, and Marketing.
Some brands showcase their innovation in creating sustainable solutions, such as Caesar Sanitary Ware. This brand carries the hydropower sensor faucet as its showpiece, a faucet whose mechanical detector runs completely on hydropower. Other than consuming no electrical energy, the faucet requires no external power source, and thus no wiring, making for effortless installation. The corrosion and tarnish-resistant chrome finish makes it a lovely addition to any bathroom, marrying form and function.
Another energy saver is Sunonwealth Electric Machine Industry Co., Ltd., having created a more energy efficient ventilation fan/filter. The fan is also designed for safety, being fireproof and waterproof. It features magnetic buttons and a lateral suction design, and gives users an energy savings of roughly 60%. Definitely not bad for this little powerhouse that promises an ultra-high air flow 250m³/h.
For work platforms of exceptional stability and safety on all types of construction sites, the company Chiao Teng Hsin Enterprise Co., Ltd. has made a ladder accessory called Aluminum Telescopic Steady Support. A structure comprised of four frameworks, it uses a multifunctional joint ladder structure and has hidden-style stainless steel shrapnel. Like every good tool, it works well with existing structures, and can be installed on other, less secure ladders. While installed, each step can hold a load of 150kg, and its anti-slip rubber feet allows the ladder to be safe and stable in a variety of work sites.
Ferro-Carbon Enterprise Co., Ltd. (FECA) brings several innovative storage solutions to the table, perfect for smaller spaces and maximizing any area. FECA products promise durability and style, and with their patented industrial vacuum technology suction cups, bring an end to the era of drilling and hammering into your walls to install storage. Each unit, such as the Samurai Wall Shelf Set, the Samurai 10″ Magnetic bar, and the Samurai Storage Bag can be attached to rough surfaces, are durable and reusable, and are stable in temperatures of -10 ̊C to 70 ̊Cͦ.
Security is the name of the game with Tong Lung Metal Industry Co., Ltd’s featured proximity lock. A lock that features four-in-one access methods: fingerprint, proximity card, password, and physical key, it eliminates the chance of users locking themselves out of their homes and offices while ensuring the security of their space. The lock eliminates excessively complicated procedures, ensuring that it locks quickly to safeguard from exterior threats while allowing for easy escape from the interior. To make things even simpler, it also has a voice guide feature for programming and operation.
Xing Tai Guang Co., Ltd. Sheds a lot of light on the subject of illuminating interior and exterior spaces with its XTGL Optical CMH Luminaire. With a power factor (PF) of ballast higher than 95% and a light output ratio (LOR) higher than 85%, it gives a luminous efficacy of luminaire higher than 85 lm/w.
Lei Yueh Enterprise Co., Ltd., believing that you should be able to see what’s inside your cabinets and small spaces without heavily impacting your electric consumption rate, presents the LED Mini Star, an ultra-slim and lightweight light source that only uses 3.26 watts per fixture.
A seismometer by e-Formula Technologies, Inc. is an innovation in early detection. It detects and measures faster less disruptive P waves from seismic activity, and sends an alert before the more damaging S wave arrives.
Cabinets and shelving systems that are poorly built are a safety hazard at worst and a nuisance at best. Addressing this problem is a Silent Self-Closing Ball Bearing Slide by King Slide Works Co., Ltd., which ensures that the home or office of the future has storage spaces that are not just whisper-quiet, but also secure and smart. Cabinets with the slide are self-closing, and the soundless speed down mechanism helps drawers close quietly by themselves, an effective improvement in living spaces that also prevent accidents caused by drawers left open.
Taroko Door & Window Technologies, Inc. offers up the Intuitive Detachable Pleated Screen, a screen system for both windows and doors that feature a dual function: keeping harsh light out during the day and keeping insects out at night while letting air freely circulate. Although highly mechanical, the screen is easily removed from wherever it’s installed for cleaning. Another perk is that it’s durable, boasting a minimum usage cycle of 100,000 times.
