SALTO's Universal Energy Saving Device (ESD) system achieves savings and comfort

SALTO Hospitality: Much more than a guestroom lock 25 March 2019
Energy usage is one of the highest operating expenses the hotel industry incurs and remains the second-largest cost hotels have to contend with, right behind labor. The cost of electricity has risen drastically in the past few years and will only continue to rise. On average, 90% of wasted electricity usage comes from the guest room, which can be your property’s most unmanaged resource (a guest room Air Conditioning/Heating (HVAC) system can represent 70-90% of that wasted electricity). Conservation is quickly becoming the cheapest and easiest solution to the problem.

Hospitality interior design goes back to black

SALTO Hospitality: Much more than a guestroom lock 7 January 2019
The colour black has a charm that never goes out of style: this is true both in fashion and interior design. Black conveys power and mystery and provides a sharp contrast to any colour. In a hotel room, where natural light may be limited, it’s often wise to keep the use of black to a minimum. Rather than combining black with strong palettes of red or orange, black can set off a monochrome design and create a simple yet stunning ambience in communal areas.
