Benefits of Investing
in Panic Bars for Your Office Building
If you have ever been in
a shopping center, school or large office building, chances are you
either entered or exited the facility through a door that has a panic bar
installed. Panic bars can be a huge asset in emergency situations.
They consist of a spring loaded, metal bar and attach
horizontally across the interior of the door. When pushed, the door is
unlatched instantly. This allows fast and easy access out of the
building, with the door opening outward, rather than inward.
These are essential because in larger buildings, if an
emergency occurs, people tend to panic, and run to the exits. If the
wrong type of door is installed, it can actually do more harm in
emergency situations. A large group will be stopped from exiting, having
to turn a knob or pull a door open. This
will reduce the speed of the evacuation and increase the chances of

to choose from.

Tips for Securing a
Sliding Glass Door
While sliding glass
doors are the ideal option for allowing natural light into your home and architectural
appeal to a structure, they can also present serious security risks.
These risks are extremely different than the ones present with
traditional steel or wood doors.
There are some
homeowners who are well-aware of the risks related to these sliders, and
as a result, they do not install them at all. However, there are a number
of simple steps that can be taken to help ensure a sliding glass door is
safe and secure.
There are three
primary ways that a potential burglar gains entry through a sliding glass
- By forcing or breaking the lock.
- Lifting the door from its track.
- Smashing the glass.
Now that you know the
potential weak spots, it's important to know what you can do to prevent a
Some of the most common tools used for preventing sliding
glass door break in's include:
- Safety bars: These extend from the rear edge of the
slider to the frame’s edge. This prevents the door from sliding even
a little, so there is no possibility of the intruder accessing the
door’s locking mechanism.
- Jimmy plates: These are long, flat plates that are
installed over the frame of the door. This prevents the door from
being lifted or rotated out of its proper position.
Some other security
tips that you can add to your sliding glass door to make it more secure
include: adding a special film to the glass to make it harder to break,
keep shrubs and other foliage at a minimum around the door, install
motion lights and add an alarm that will go off if the sliding glass door
is tampered with.

sliding glass door in your home.
Handy Gadgets to
Prevent “The Case of the Illusive Keys”
Do you seem to always be
searching for your keys? This is a common issue since keys are small and
pretty easy to misplace. Also, when you carry them with you everywhere
you go, you are bound to put them down and forget about them at some
point. If you are ready to minimize the stress that goes along with
frantically searching for your keys, then you should consider purchasing
one of the handy, key finding gadgets highlighted here.
The Stick N’ Find
This is the high tech
gadget that will help you find your misplaced keys quickly. It is a GPS
system designed specifically for keys. You attach the Stick N’ Find to
your key ring and then download the corresponding app to your smartphone.
If you wind up losing your keys, all you have to do is activate the app
and you will receive a radar-type of map to find their general location.
Don’t worry, it is password protected which means that no one else can
This is quite the
innovative little key finding device. While it has a simple design, it features a thin tag that
holds an electronic chip. This chip offers GPS accessibility to show the
exact location of your keys. It is similar to the previous device, but
unlike that one, it allows you to share the app with others. This will
help you find the keys, especially if you leave them at a friend’s or
family member’s house.
Considered one of the
most precise of all the options of key finding devices, The Pixie is for
those who want a pinpointed location to where they left their keys. While
other devices provide a general vicinity for your keys, The Pixie
provides a pinpointed location. You can also use the integrated camera
and compass to actually see where you keys are.
With these devices,
you never have to worry about misplacing your keys again. All you need is
the key tracking device, a smart phone and Wi-Fi access and you can
quickly find your keys, no matter where they may be hiding!
