Understand CEN Ratings and Standards

We were recently asked by a customer if the CEN rating was still relevant now that the UK has left the EU.

The answer is that CEN (Central European Norm) testing and rating is still as important as ever as it’s a valuable, internationally recognised standard that provides a level playing field for all manufacturers and a reliable indicator for consumers.

What is the Best Bird Deterrent

The British Trust for Ornithology has estimated that bird-loving Brits spend in excess of £200 million every year on feeding wild birds in our gardens. The past 12 months, during which many of us have spent far more time at home due to the pandemic, has prompted renewed interest in our outdoor spaces. People have reported seeing more birds in their gardens and 54% have highlighted how watching birds, in their gardens and local areas, is a great way to relieve stress. But unfortunately - birds can sometimes be a nuisance or even become a health hazard.

How to Avoid Selection Bias

Studies have shown that humans are simply incapable of making unbiased, random choices. For example, when people are asked to choose random numbers more will tend to select odd numbers than even. Whether we like it or not, we are all susceptible to our biases and predispositions and in many significant scenarios these tendencies are entirely unacceptable.

Why You Need a Ground Anchor

Why You Need a Ground Anchor

Anchors have a long history. The earliest known anchors were simply rocks and many of these rock anchors have been discovered, dating back to the Bronze age. The ancient Greeks used a variety of anchoring systems including baskets of stones, sand-filled sacks and even logs filled with lead. The availability of Iron enabled development of what is widely recognised as the traditional, fluted form of anchor which is known to have been used by the Romans in the 1st century and the Vikings in the 10th. The anchor became viewed as a symbol representing safety which was adopted by Christians as a representation of hope. In this post we examine security ground anchors which fundamentally perform the same function as the anchors used by our ancient forebears. They prevent something from being moved from it’s anchored position, keeping it safe and secure.


Anti Climb Paint Essential for Property Security

Anti Climb Paint Essential for Property Security

Vandalism, metal theft and security challenges at our valuable heritage sites and museums have prompted police forces and security professionals to remind people of what they need to do to keep their properties safe. Many of our museums, galleries and other public buildings are understaffed due to the COVID-19 pandemic making them attractive targets for thieves. And the cost of burglaries from these valuable institutions, combined with the impact of the pandemic, can potentially be disastrous.
