In August 2012 an email with a wonderful video was launched into the Email Inbox of Smart Technical Solutions. This video has been taken from a helicopter. The relaxing music background is composed by the Greek composers Vangelis (Papathanassiou), Stavros Xarchakos, John Marcopoulos, Evanthia Reboutsika and Kyriakos Kalaitzidis.
Because, as we saw it, for 15 minutes we travelled mentally to some wonderful places of our country and felt deep bliss by their beauty, we felt the desire to share it with the visitors of our website. Our country is really a paradise and it is up to its habitants to enjoy it every single moments, regardless of the financial crisis. The only thing needed is team spirit and co-operation among people who live in Greece.
Note: At the end of this article you can see a list with some of the places shown in the video.
An interesting technical message which came to our mind while we watched this video is the need for protection of some millions of square meters of construction surfaces against corrosion due to weather conditions, dirt, solar radiation and other causes for wear.
In order for the concrete plates of the building terrasses to remain solid, for the wall paints not to flake off and fade and for the stony surfaces such as marble, stone plates, stone constructions, mosaic, porous tiles etc. to preserve their vivid colours, Smart Technical Solutions suggests a simple application of the suitable transparent hydrophobic materials, which resist solar radiation and weather conditions and have a many years life.
More information about the various applications, depending on the type of surface, you can find here. Especially, when it comes to the magnificent monuments of our country, many of which appear in the video, click here.
