In October 2018, we received a phone call from Greater Manchester Police appealing for help for 93-year-old Royal Navy veteran, James Gilligan.
James’ home had been broken into three times in the space of just six months.
Our customer is a private aviation company which offers a number of elite services to their executive travel clients, which includes stylish executive lounges.
We were approached by this customer who had a rather unconventional use for window security, but still, had a problem which needed a solution – and here at Window Security Solutions – we relish a challenge.
After receiving a grant from the National Lottery Fund, Blackpool Art Society approached Window Security Solutions with a core interest in Hammerglass.
Formed in 1884, the Blackpool Art Society is one of the oldest societies in Britain. Blackpool Art Society has its own studio, which was purpose-built in 1972 for its members to use and create different forms of art as well as hosting workshops, demonstrations and talks.
In 2017, Blackpool Art Society was victim to repeated acts of vandalism with incidents occurring just weeks apart. The extent of the vandalism resulted in broken windows which cost £500 each time they had to be replaced.
According to a recent BBC article, more than £1m was spent by councils on repairing vandalism at schools in the past year – 2015. The exterior image that a school or college projects is crucially important to students and their parents. But how do you balance the need for security with the image you need to convey?
