King Koil
Sleep Solutions for Healthier Hotel Performance
WHY USE PROTECT-A-BED?
Would you purchase a used mattress? The universal answer to this question is NO. Every night a guest sleeps on an unprotected mattress, he or she is sleeping on a mattress used by thousands of people over time. Within two weeks, independent labs can detect fungus, mold and bacteria growing inside a new, unprotected mattress, exposing the hotelier’s investment to a premature breakdown of mattress fibres and exposing the guest to breathing in these allergens and human contaminants. Protect-A-Bed encasements provide a barrier that is waterproof, air-vapor porous and hygienic. They present a new, clean mattress to every guest, every night.
Encasements are six-sided, zippered, protective coverings that fit like a second skin, encapsulating the mattress on all six sides.
This feature is critical for efficacy when protecting the mattress against bed bugs, dust mites and allergens. Encasements also are the most effective protection from human contamination. This is far better than mattress pads that are usually heavy and difficult to launder, consuming time, labor, water and chemical resources to maintain hygiene from guest to guest.
Protect-A-Bed products are manufactured with quality-control standards implemented at the plant level, assuring production quality consistency.
The seams are one of the most vulnerable areas of an encasement. Yet side seams are needed to support moisture containment and absorption on the top surface. Double stitched or ‘French seams” are critical to assure strength, durability and moisture proofing at this vulnerable area. Try pulling apart the seam of an encasement. Double-stitch seams with close, small stitch counts will not separate or show needle holes in the product. Needle holes compromise the products overall capabilities. Protect-A-Bed products feature the Miracle membrane, a polyurethane-laminated layer that creates an air-vapor-porous, waterproof layer that sleeps cool and comfortable.
Added to this and other features is the Bug Lock and Secure Seal, Protect-A-bed’s patented features on its encasements. These features secure the zipper at the end point with a safety trench and zip-tie lock, assuring the product to be bed bug entry-exit and bite-proof. Protect-A-Bed products are also pesticide free.
As for the ROI of these encasements, hoteliers’ feedback has stated that the Protect-A-Bed encasements have positively contributed to the profitability of the hotel by minimizing the need for replacement-bedding products, as well as reducing housekeeping, utility, water, chemical and labor cost, and decreasing lost room revenue due to room-recovery downtime.

Chua Song Seng
Giffard – World Renowned Liquers
The world renowned liqueurs and sirops producer, Giffard was founded by Emile Giffard who started as a dispensing pharmacist in the Loire Valley. Emile Giffard was at that time a dispensing pharmacist in Angers (Val de Loire). Inventive, curious and gourmet, he undertook research on the digestive and refreshing properties of mint in 1885. As a result, Giffard invented a pure, clear and refined white mint liqueur which he tested with the Grand Hotel’s customers, in order to relieve them from heat. Success came at once. Emile changed his pharmacy into a distillery and called his liqueur MENTHE PASTILLE, referring to the mint sweets that were very popular at that time. Four generations later GIFFARD is still in the hands of the same family and keeps quality as a motto from the origin. Today, Giffard offers more than 120 years of know-how in producing high quality liqueurs and syrups. The production process mixes traditional methods (slow fruit and plant maceration) with the latest techniques, in order to enhance the true taste of fruit. The quality of these products is ensured by a family management system which spans over four generations. Giffard is one of the rare producers that offers a high quality level in both syrup and liqueur ranges dedicated to the bar industry.

Global Pacific Solutions
Renowned Importers and Contributors of Fine Food
Global Pacific Victory or better known as GPV are one of the most prestigious and renowned fine food importers and distributors in the world. The company has been present in Malaysia for almost 15 years, starting their business here in 1999. GPV has always been a point of reference for imported fine foods and a professional company for the supply of its products to consumers. GPV distribute their products to a range of hotels, catering companies and hypermarkets in Malaysia. As an ever expanding company they have launched some new brands such as Jindi dairy, Elegre antipasto and Augustus beef to their portfolio that holds some of the most well-known brands in fi ne foods, including Granoro Pasta, Olitalia, Beaufor, Galbani and Happy Cow cheese. Granoro Pasta Pasta of unmatched quality has a steady cooking; it is firm and compact even a few hours after straining. A long cooking time is not a synonymous of quality: it depends on the thickness of the pasta sheet, well done outside and underdone inside, i.e. “aldente”. Granoro Pasta has a fair thickness that is gauged in order to get an even cooking. Moreover, it is elastic and firm; in other words, it is “al dente”. Pasta is a food easy to digest, eaten alone or accompanied with a sauce. All nutritional properties are maintained as long as they are not released in water during the cooking. A long cooking time is the result of an inexact thickness, which causes the release of starch in the water (making pasta “furred”). As a result, the Granoro Pasta undergoes a checking process, as to reach the optimum ratio between thickness and cooking time. As the modern nutritional science suggests us, 65% of calories should come from carbohydrates. Selected durum wheat semolina is rich in gluten: one portion (50 g.) of cooked pasta produces about 200 kcal (818 kj). The Granoro Pasta keeps its nutritional properties because it is made of selected durum wheat semolina and the entire manufacturing process is submitted to severe and regular checks.
