ORNATE furnishings such as lamps, statues and antiques at the luxury five-star Shangri-La hotel in Paris are being marked with SelectaDNA.
According to a survey by online travel agent lastminute.com, theft costs an average hotel around £4,000 a year, a figure that rises to £15,000 per year for five-star properties.
Proven to reduce theft by up to 83%, SelectaDNA is marking the expensive fixtures and fittings at the Shangri-La with a unique DNA coded solution containing microdots that links the items directly back to the hotel. The clear, traceable solution does not damage the property in any way and is not visible to the naked eye.
In the event of marked hotel property being stolen and recovered by police, the items are easily traceable. It is also much more difficult for a thief to sell on a marked item of property.
