IFS powder - a vacation display
As August draws to a close, our vacation memories of sun, sand, ice cream and relaxing hotels are still pretty fresh. Great hotels are never far from the IFS memory, as some pretty cool resorts benefit from IFS powder coatings. Stylish, functional chairs from MTS Seating and MTS Burgess feature in many different hotel brands, Marriott properties light up with cool lighting from Ultralights and there are elegant IFS powder coated tables at the Saratoga Hilton in New York. Both the Winstar World Casino Hotel in Oklahoma and the Layfayette Hotel in New York City boast beautiful, IFS 500FP protected windows to complement the view.
