You can't beat a foam bath

Not like this:
Leaning back and enjoying a relaxing bath couldn't be more soothing, especially in winter. However, if instead of using a bath you're attempting it in the basement of a building with commercial expanding foam instead of bath foam, there's something wrong. …

The world stands on its head

Not like this:
And the prize in the category product innovation of the year goes to – our floor entry MSH-Basic FUBO, in the role of a wall-mounted entry. At first sight this construction may appear quite neat, but there are reasons why we differentiate between a floor entry and a …

Musical chairs with service lines


Not like this: 
The game of musical chairs, a hit at birthday parties for children, has now moved into the working life. Two free spots and four players - Gas, Water, Eltecrticity and Telecommunication.

A better approach:

Seeing red

Not like this:
Times are changing. We allowed ourselves some fun at the 2010 FW Colloquium in Dresden, and added to our stand personnel. The two ladies in red declared themselves ready and willing to tell the busy event visitors about the latest Hauff products. Back then, rollups …

Cutting costs on cable sealing?

Not like this:
Christopher Clueless is a penny pincher who simply leaves out the system cover required for cable sealing altogether. He thinks that hammering in a pressure-tight closing cover and pulling in the cables will somehow provide sufficient sealing. However, the right system …

If expanding foam is your life

Not like this:
We have to admit, the sight of expanding foam oozing out looks quite amusing. But this is far from being the right solution, let alone providing a good seal. Who wants an unprofessional construction of this kind in their utilities connection room? It is an open door to …
