Security Glass & Residential Applications

If you're in the market for secure residential windows, do not presume the words like security, shatter-proof or shatter-resistant mean unbreakable. Take the time to understand various levels of protection in residential windows: 

Glazed Windows usually refer to actual glass panels that are treated with a film that helps stop the transfer of warm or cool air and may reduce the UV effects of sunlight. They are not usually associated with security. 

Tempered Glass is heat-treated for strength, but is not strong enough to withstand significant impact. Rather, when broken, it disintegrates into small pieces instead of shards, making it less likely to to do harm to those nearby. 

Laminated Glass is glass with one or more layers applied to its surface for various reasons, such as insulation and UV protection. When security window film is applied, it can be strong enough to delay attempted intrusion through window breakage. 

Polycarbonate Panels provide many quality features of glass, but are in fact much stronger. They are often preferred by high-end retailers because they offer greater resistance to impact, deterring most or all break and entry attempts. 

Now that you have a little more information and are better informed, happy window hunting!

Ordering Picture Frames Online

Thanks to smartphone technology, it's now possible to send your favourite photographs and images off to a professional framing house, without leaving your home or risking damage to a precious print. All you need is a good quality digital photograph or image from your phone or camera that you can email or file transfer. In some cases, depending on the facility (and copyright laws), you may also be able to provide a high-resolution image of artwork for framing. Of course, the higher the resolution you can send, the better the quality of the results you'll receive.  But, that's just the beginning. Before committing to a particular frame, you can now use a frame service's app to test-view your photo, poster or art in position with an entire inventory of virtual framing and matting arrangements. You can try different combinations until you find the one that works best for you. You can even see how an individual piece looks on your wall or plan out an entire collage or galler
