Ions solves environment problem.
- We have recently installed ionizing equipment, says Roy Carlsson, owner of
Kungsbacka Bilskadecenter. Earlier we had problems with dust and troublesome odour,
which also was spread to other parts of the building. Because of this we have together with
the landlord and an environmental company worked out this solution. And after just two
months it has shown that we have succeeded to solve the problems.
equipment is working by sending
charged ions through a duct
system into the premises. The ions
attract particles with foreign
substances which exist in the air.
These is gathered together and
removed to a destruction plant. The
technique can of course be used in
many other situations.
- You can compare how it feels
to go out after a thunderstorm; the
air feels completely fresh and clear,

- This comprehensive view is a
benefit for all involved in a claims

thieves can steal all properties of
value which lies visible in the car!
But obviously also properties which

- The latest is that they steal
airbags! says Roy.
There are just as many damages
today in total despite that the cars

tendency that the households not
longer give priority to repair smaller
damages on their cars. They put
their money on other things
instead, for instance new furnishing
in the bathroom or a plasma TV,
and drive on with a bodywork
damage on the car.
- This doesn’t happen with
company owned cars where they
as quickly as possible take care of
all damages, says Roy. These cars
are going to be replaced after three
years and must therefore look nice
in respect of keeping its value.
What colours is in great demand
- Silver and different grey
shades have been fashion in
several years, but now it seems
that more colours are coming back.
Metallic paint which is so popular
can give us certain troubles
occasionally. The shades alter and
we have to spray larger section of
the car. If we for example spray the
door only, then it will diverge from
the rest of the cars side.
High-tech in the repair shop
A profession in a garage was
earlier considered as noisy, heavy
and dirty. Parents, with their old
picture of mechanic work in a
garage, advised their young people
not to seek this type of work.
- With the new data technology
in cars and better tools, cleaner
environment you can’t compare
how it look like today. In school, the
requires for each year higher and
higher points to participate, says
Roy. So I’m not worried in finding
competent staff in the future.

It is Mats self who has invented this
method. The technology is not new
by itself but to apply it into a
ventilation duct system is new.
- You remove static electricity
in the air simply! And then all dust
is falling down on the floor.
The company he has founded has
until today done hundreds of
succeeded installations, both in

The sizes of installations fluctuate
- We are working with
everything from small bedroom to
big industrial premises. We are
right now going to make an
installation in a 27.000 sq.m. large
