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.

How to Protect Solar Panels from Birds

Rooftop mounted solar panels are everywhere these days as businesses and homeowners strive to use sustainable solar technology to generate the electrical power we all need. Solar energy is a clean, efficient power source which is exactly what’s required to combat climate change.

Are You Ready for Smart Locks

The earliest known locking mechanism was discovered by archaeologists in Iraq, dating from around 4000 B.C. So we are all very familiar with traditional locks and keys, using them every day around our homes, our vehicles and our workplaces.

Metric to Imperial and Imperial to Metric Conversion Charts

In September 1999 the Mars Climate Orbiter, after taking almost 10 months to travel to Mars, broke into pieces and burned up. The cause of this disaster was found to have been a failure to use the correct units. The software controlling the Orbiter’s thrusters had calculated the force they needed to exert in pounds but a second piece of software assumed the correct metric unit, ‘newtons per square metre’ had been used. The standard practice for space missions, to convert all units to metric, had not been carried out by the contractor, Lockheed Martin Astronautics in Colorado, which, like the rest of the U.S. used English, imperial measurements.
