One of the main and most common flea treatments for dogs is spot on treatment. A spot-on treatment is used most often in the household by pet owners, and it is a quick and easy way of protecting your dog from fleas.

Another type of flea treatment for dog’s is flea shampoo. Flea shampoo’s are handy for severe infestations as they produce a quick, effective kill getting the fleas off your dog immediately. However, they don’t tend to have long term prevention and fleas can easily return within 24 hours. So, whilst flea shampoo is a great flea treatment for dogs, it only a quick fix rather than a long-term solution.

More flea treatments for dogs include oral treatment that is typically taken in tablet form. Oral flea treatments for dogs includes a chemical called Lufenuron which technically doesn’t kill any adult fleas but it ensures any larvae produced by adult fleas will not survive. This method is useful alongside another flea treatment such as shampooing or spot on treatments.

Steel Fabrications

What are steel fabrications?

Steel fabrication is the process of manufacturing steel into certain shapes using cutting, welding, and grinding. It usually first begins with a design, a product that is required, the engineer will then look at the best process to make the steel fabrication required.

More often than not a metal/steel fabrication will be cut into the desired shape and size. Various processes will be used including laser cutting and high-tech multi-process machinery.

Welding is also commonly used in the steel fabrication process, this is normally when a number of pieces are welded together, the welding process uses high heat to melt the metals together, as the metals cool they will fuse together.

Grinding can also be used in steel fabrications, the main purpose of grinding is to provide a high-quality finish, enhancing the shape that was intended. Abrasive wheels are used to shear off small pieces creating a smoother finish.

At the end of the steel fabrications process, all of the parts are put together to form a finished product. Bolts or washers can also be added to get the required strength and finish required.

In simple terms, steel fabrication is just a process that involves the process of transforming raw steel into the desired item, usually used in construction or assembly.

The most common raw materials that are mostly used are plated metals, castings, fittings, flat metals, welding wire, and formed and expanded metal.

All of these steel fabrications will be bought together and made by skilled engineers, that are highly trained in the field of forging, welding, and steel fabrications.

How Aerials & TV Have Evolved

Sky Installation So It Began

the old analogue TV colour bar system

The advent of TV was hailed a miracle, or a menace depending on the view of the the little kid who was watching it at the time. Only literally having two channels available to watch at the time, and with nothing good on them, your options as a kid were limited. Watch TV with folks or go out and get your self into mischief. The latter would be the widely chosen option for any self respecting child. Hang out with your mates or watch and listen to some dreary well spoken how to do reading poetry or the news. Over the air television was truly the first type of television available, using them good old fashioned rabbit ears TV aerials that you kept on having to threaten to get a good signal.


Then It Changed

As we became more adept at using technology, we were able to increase TV channels, manipulating UHF and VHF frequencies to cram more TV programs down them bandwidths. The major issue with this technology was it’s lack of motivation, seeing a tree in it’s own path would cause the signal to get lost before reaching the intended TV aerial. A gust of wind could cause severe problems for viewers trying to catch (remember, no record button on your remote, and you were lucky to have a VCR, so you had to watch at the time of broadcast) Countdown. Eventually, this had to make way for digital transmissions.

Smart TV Aerials & Televisions

With the rise in digital signals, we had to wave good bye to our old friend analogue. We also had to say good bye to the traditional aerial and use a smart TV aerial, this enabled us to receive more and more channels along with packages included with sky installation, with the ability to watch other channels not being broadcast via the usual methods. This would become known as the ‘press the red button now’. This has given people access to content and information that was not available through the old analogue systems, and at a speed and stability that digital has given us. With our continued progress of digital signals, it can only be an exciting prospect at what this technology can offer us next.
