Science teaches us that matter moves from order to disorder. Amazingly, the same thing can happen to buildings!  What once was sparkling and new can eventually slide into disrepair.

Building owners could simply surrender to it, or they can proactively take a stand and fight for their buildings. They can choose products that protect the interior from damage in the first place.

Architects and interior designers can also slow the hands of time by thinking long term and specifying door and wall protection products … to not only preserve their design, but also as a service to building owners long after the ribbon is cut.
