Unicoil develops thin gauge, pre-painted galvanized steel

Unicoil reports that it has developed thin gauge galvanized steel and pre-painted galvanized steel, described as the first of its kind in Middle East.
Till date the minimum thickness for galvanized steel manufactured in the region was 0.27 mm and the minimum thickness for pre-painted galvanized steel was 0.30 mm, “only by Unicoil.”
Along with its vision of continual developments of innovative products and business solution to cater various industrial needs, Unicoil succeeded to bring down the thickness for galvanized steel to 0.20 mm and for pre-painted galvanized steel to 0.22 mm, aimed at indoor ceiling (acoustic and non-acoustic) panel industry, electrical cable tape industry and many more light weight applications, which will provide diversified solutions to various industries and can lead to import substitution.
With this achievement, Unicoil, claimed as the market leader of galvanized and pre-painted galvanized steel in Middle East, says it thus surpasses its own record of being the only the national company providing thin gauge requirements to the industry.
Unicoil launched in the past smart products for energy savings and antibacterial application for enhanced hygiene requirements of the industry aside from developing eco-friendly chrome free pre-painted products.
Unicoil says it is committed to continuously improve and enhance its product portfolio by providing complete solutions to multifarious market requirements under one umbrella.

Ritz-Carlton, Riyadh unveils Ramadan tent

The Ritz-Carlton, Riyadh is inviting guests to its lamp-inspired Ramadan tent for an opulent gastronomic experience and authentic spiritual ambience.
This year’s Ramadan tent theme “Siraj,” a literal interpretation of “lantern,” transforms one of the hotel’s ballrooms into an exquisitely decorated dining area featuring a lavish iftar buffet.
The classic decor reminisces the role of traditional lamps, which were used in the past for lighting family gatherings and its flame was considered the means to keep those gatherings alive even after dark. Since then, lanterns have been used to decorate houses, shops and streets in the holy month.
Mohammed Marghalani, manager at Ritz-Carlton, Riyadh, said: “The project is the result of the cooperation of various employees in the hotel — starting from the tent’s name through to the variety and quality of dishes and the reception and care of the valued ladies and gentlemen visiting us.”
“Ramadan preparations are deeply rooted in our traditions as they emphasize the uniqueness of this special month. The real essence of Arabian hospitality focuses on making visitors and guests feel appreciated and comfortable,” he added.
Ramadan tents in hotels offering iftar and suhoor delicacies have become a tradition in the Kingdom during the fasting month.
