Compliant Victims

Factors contributing to bank robberies can largely be explained by three factors. More bank outlets and extended hours increase opportunities for robberies. Banks remain the most lucrative of all robbery targets; moreover, 80 percent of stolen money is never recovered. Bank robberies are usually fast, low risk crimes, because employees are trained to comply with a robber’s demands. Moreover, although the risk of arrest is high, much of this risk is short term, and risk – as reflected by clearances Read More

Smart Doors

Smart Doors Do you consider doors that do what you want, when you want, to be smart? How about a door system that reacts before you do? Imagine doors that are disciplined enough to protect you from harm or respond to your request in an emergency. How does this magic happen? Smart doors are the result of aligning a series of arrayed sensors and components in constant communication with a computer know as a Programmable Logic Controller or PLC. PLCs Read More

Ballistic and Hurricane Resistant Aluminum

Isotec uses a 6061-T6 aluminum alloy for our doors and frames in our Safety Entrances™. The 6061 alloy has 64{0da0b4c47deb7adb6cb4b94258fb97930383627607256e0b73b442c6f21152f9} greater strength to weight ratio, 72{0da0b4c47deb7adb6cb4b94258fb97930383627607256e0b73b442c6f21152f9} greater tensile strength, and 75{0da0b4c47deb7adb6cb4b94258fb97930383627607256e0b73b442c6f21152f9} greater shear strength than the 6063-T5 alloy used by others. Strength to weight is a rather self-defined expression. The 6061 alloy weighs less but is stronger than the 6063 alloy. This strength to weight ratio is reflected in the higher tensile and shear strength ratios of the alloy. Tensile strength is Read More

Underwriters Laboratory Glass vs. HP White Glass

Spall – “flakes of a material that are broken off a larger solid body and can be produced by a variety of mechanisms, including as a result of projectile impact.” – Wikipedia Spall might not mean much to you. However, spall might be the last thing you’ll see if you’re on the “witness side” of HP White type glass, as you will most likely be blinded and severely scarred. The photos below show shards of spall and the resulting effects Read More

Low Emissivity Glass – aka “Low E”

Low E Glass Illustration Low E glass reflects heat when temperatures soar and absorb heat in colder conditions. This value is known as the “R-Value”.The R-value is a measure of thermal resistance used in the building and construction industry. Under uniform conditions, it is the ratio of the temperature difference across an insulator and the heat flux (heat transfer per unit area per unit time) through it or. Thermal resistance varies with temperature. Low E performance standards vary by a Read More

The "New Normal" Security Standards

Shootem Up Flyer_2016 Terrorist and criminals have escalated their levels of violence throughout the world. They deem no act too severe, or target too soft to achieve their objectives. Therefore, safety and security countermeasures need to operate with zero risk tolerances to deny terrorists and criminals the ability to project their “new normal”. Here are some requirements to protect against the “new normal” paradigm. Must Work 24/7 – 365 Days a Year Safety & security countermeasures must operative and be Read More
