How Denmark is improving their environment
An island that comprises part of the city of Copenhagen.
Standing at the 279-foot summit of what is now one of the city’s tallest structures presents a surreal spectacle: skiers whooshing down a vast carpet of green Neveplast, a synthetic “dry skiing” surface from Italy, amid a staggering panorama that’s dominated by the smokestacks of nearby biomass plants and, behind them, the gloomy, fog-shrouded expanse of the North Sea, dotted with massive wind turbines. Like the writer Don DeLillo’s “postmodern sunsets,” it’s at once inspiringly beautiful and vaguely apocalyptic.
Walking around the windswept peak, I run into Chemmy Alcott, a now retired English ski racer and four-time Olympian
“It’s really quite epic,” she says. No stranger to artificial snow, she tells me that she finds the stubbier Neveplast faster than she’s used to. “It’s not boring,” she said of Amager Bakke, praising the “undulating terrain” and the strange experience of skiing through the vaporous plumes of steam being vented by the plant. “For a moment you lose awareness, and then you come out the other side,” she says. “It’s like when you skydive and go through a cloud.”
How Securoseal Protects.
Strap your suitcase closed, seal your zips and keep a numbered receipt.
Stronger than 2x your maximum check in weight. Securoseal stays sealed.
Tamper evident technology helps you detect a tampering event.
Highly sensitive tamper indication with a unique identity number. Tampering in any direction will create a void tamper pattern.
load bearing seal.
Strong enough to hold double the maximum checked weight limit for luggage. Once sealed, tampering in any direction will cause the surface to fragment.
Isolate zips with a single use cable tie. Includes an internal ‘one way’ metal sealing device. Numbered & bar coded to match the unique identity number of your seal. Once sealed, attempted removal will leave tamper evidence on the cable tie.
Each seal is marked with a unique identity number and includes a tamper evident receipt that is adhesive. Keep the receipt with you to verify the identity number of your seal.
At your destination, your seal can be released without cutting tools. Use of this function will leave tamper evidence on the buckle.
