April 5, 2014—Just before heading to Intramuros, Manila for the Outbreak Mission: Operation Stronghold event, I went to the 10th Manila Automobile International Show (MIAS) in World Trade Center. Car enthusiasts all flocked to check out the latest automobiles manufactured by the biggest brands in terms of development and innovation. Overall, the exhibition was a pretty solid representation of vehicular awesomeness!
Aside from modern and retro cars, motorbikes, e-bikes and car accessories, the 10th Manila Automobile International Show also featured technical gadgets and hot products newly released in the market. Some of those I liked were: Garmin watches which can track distance, speed, pace and calories and also record the paths traveled with its GPS navigation (I really want one!); Dyson’s blade-less ring fan (super cool); carNAVi (Philippines GPS car navigation); and the URATEX Mobile Sleep Solution.
Uratex: Present in MIAS 2014
Those of us who are familiar with Mercato Centrale have had front row seats to the mobile truck phenomenon. Nowadays, it’s not only the food establishments that “push their carts” to wherever their wheels take them. URATEX Foam Philippines, the leading and largest manufacturer of commercial and automotive polyurethane foam in the country, has joined the bandwagon.
Mobile Trucks Take URATEX Showroom on the Road
With trucks paroling the streets starting from Metro Manila, Uratex takes a proactive approach in marketing and introducing their newest line of products, with Atoy Custom’s creation. The mobile sleep solution combines the concept of convenience of accessibility into one. It won’t be long when this becomes popular, as the Uratex truck travels around Luzon (first seen in Pasig and Quezon City Memorial Circle) and soon in Visayas and Mindanao as well. The objective is to educate people for good night sleep.
Inside the Uratex truck, primarily displayed were the Memory Foam Mattress and the Premium Touch Viscoluxe Memory Mattress. Uratex Philippines promises that both these mattresses can bring about an all-over feeling of relaxation and a comfortable sleep with less tossing and turning.
The Memory Foam Mattress is eight inches thick. It conforms to your body’s specific shape and contours and senses your body’s weight and temperature. Made of high-quality memory foam, the Uratex Memory Foam Mattress is trusted by the Philippine Orthopaedic Association.
On the other hand, the Premium Touch Viscoluxe Memory Mattress has an advanced pocket spring system and body-molding memory form for soothing indulgence. This boasts of an exclusive firm feel that balances the softness of memory foam for optimum support and comfort. The pressure-free sensation allows the joints and spine to be in natural alignment.
I’m loving these two mattress! We also use Uratex foam mattress at home. Investing on a comfortable bed is best for our essential shut-eye. Agree? 🙂
Uratex as an Automotive Foam Supplier
After visiting the “URATEX Mobile Sleep Solution” booth, I found myself in a maze inside the World Trade Center. My feet then led me to another Uratex booth where I found out that Uratex also offers multi-color and multi-shape-designed upholstery for car seats, seat covers, and motorcycle saddles. Wow! Really, it feels great to learn something new every day.
Depending on preference and budget, Uratex seat covers can be selected as either ready-made or custom-made for the vehicle. The more expensive option is the customized covers since it’s designed to the car’s exact fit (including year and make). There’s also the semi-custom covers that fit general vehicles but not necessarily match the specific year, make and model of the car. However, these are still unlike the universal seat covers which have a universal fit regardless of the vehicle’s type, year, make and model.
