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.


https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-b057155b-ab07-4e89-9579-9916f64f6a69-v2These 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 injuries.


Some of the benefits of panic bars in your commercial space include the following:


  • A safer option.
  • There are a large number of panic bar sizes and styles to choose from.
  • They are an affordable.

  • Potential to reduce your insurance rates.


If your commercial facility does not currently have a panic bar installed at exits, it is a good idea to look into the benefits they offer now. This will make a building safer and easier to exit in an emergency situation.

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 door, including:


  • 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 break in.


https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-c037bc1a-7e33-4617-b9b8-b205dd884310-v2Some 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.


Implementing the safety and security tips here can help you prevent a break in through a 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 use it.


The Tile

This is quite the innovative little key finding device. https://d1yoaun8syyxxt.cloudfront.net/ed152-f89d6f1a-52f9-41b7-adb8-fef58ade9235-v2While 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.


The Pixie

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!
