Rolling Gates NYC Unveils New Line of Custom Rolling Gates and Doors for NYC Shop Owners

Manhattan, NY (PRWEB) November 10, 2014

Rolling Gates NYC has today officially debuted new customized rolling gate and door models to help customers throughout the Big Apple safeguard their livelihoods.

Break-ins, vandalism, graffiti, looting – these terms are all too familiar to New York City business owners. They bring fear and a looming sense of loss and failure. However, there are solutions on the market that make it virtually impossible for thieves and vandals to damage a business owner’s livelihood, and Rolling Gates NYC is the city’s premier installer of high-quality, professional rolling gates for business protection. The company has announced important information for any business owner currently in the market for a new rolling gate in NYC.

Solid gates provide robust protection for shop windows, doors and other access points. However, they are susceptible to vandalism like graffiti.

Slotted or grille rolling gates in NYC are ideal for discouraging both break-ins and graffiti, as the open slots resist “tagging” and the solid metal construction provides robust strength.

“It’s important for our clients to choose a custom solution for their rolling gate in NYC,” stated the spokesman of the company. “Some clients will do better with a solid gate, but others will need the added benefit of a grille rolling gate. NYC businesses need solutions to the crime problem, and we’re proud to be one of the most frequently recommended sources in the city.”

Rolling Gates NYC is also proud to provide clients with other vital solutions, including locksmith services, commercial door repair, rolling gate maintenance, access control system installation and a great deal more.

Brian Wade Hitchcock Reveals How to Quit Type 2 Diabetes

Torrance, Calif. (PRWEB) November 03, 2014

Brian Wade Hitchcock had type 2 diabetes for more than 15 years. In 2011, he successfully overcame this disease. To this day, he remains completely free from this affliction. He shares his story and helps other people regain control over their lives in his recently released book, “EX-DIABETIC: Your Guide to Quitting Type 2 Diabetes and Living Without It!” (published by Xlibris).

During his battle with diabetes, Hitchcock’s doctors prescribed him one drug after another, supposedly treating his diabetes. None of these medications addressed the root cause of the problem. He still had high blood sugar, and kept gaining weight; by the spring of 2011, he was severely obese, weighing 275 lbs. and was injecting insulin daily.

On March 16, 2011, Hitchcock radically changed his lifestyle and his health. After seven weeks his MD told him to stop the insulin. By December that year, he had quit diabetes and drugs, and lost 70 lbs.

In “EX-DIABETIC” he explains how his success over diabetes was possible. He demystifies diabetes and debunks media disinformation about this condition, and about dieting, digestion and drugs. More importantly, he shares the principles and eating habits that led to his complete recovery.

Locksmith Amityville Recently Installs Video Monitoring System

Amityville, New York (PRWEB) October 09, 2014

Locksmith Amityville takes great pleasure in announcing the completion of a high tech security system installation in a local apartment building. The Long Island locksmith and security professionals have installed eight low profile cameras to improve surveillance at the facility. The covert cameras appear to be smoke detectors to the naked eye and are instrumental in monitoring traffic in and out of the apartment complex. The inconspicuous video monitoring system will be helpful in tracking access to the building by possible intruders and identifying suspicious activity. The secret cameras enable building management to keep tabs on the actions of visitors and guests, who can be involved in illegal activities unbeknownst to residents of the apartment complex. Owners of the facility can ensure the safety of the residents and get a better handle on the background of the residents. If there is an issue with a tenant, the cameras provide video evidence of any suspicious behavior that could lead to eviction or prosecution. This keeps the caliber of buidling tenants high and maintains a safe environment for them as well. The cameras can be used to get an advanced look at potential visitors to the building and screen them for entrance. Residents will feel much safer if they know the people who are entering their buidling are being screened in advance. In addition, the cameras typically send video signals back to a computer hard drive that can record long stretches of time, enabling building owners to cover unmanned overnight hours as well. If there are any disputes or complaints, the recorded video provides a visual record to settle issues.

The low profile nature of the cameras is a big advantage in that it allows monitoring of suspicious persons in their natural environment. Installing cameras that are too obvious will make it more difficult to track suspicious individuals, as they are aware of the security layout. Apartment residents will now feel more secure knowing that owners are taking measures to ensure their safety and that their landlords are keeping that in mind. The new additions will serve as a deterrent to potential crime. High tech video monitoring systems are just a sample of the many services provide by Locksmith Amityville, Long Island’s leading locksmith specialist. Their fully licensed and insured technicians who have been solving security problems for years.

In addition to apartment buildings, Locksmith Amityville offers many commercial, residential and automotive security solutions such as lock and key changes, the installation of exit devices and magnetic locks. Locksmith Amityville provides emergency services, 24 hours, seven days a week.

A free estimate of security options is available by calling or contacting them on line at Contact Locksmith Amityville and keep a close eye on security!
