Know the Risk – Raise Your Shield: Travel Awareness

 Office of the Director of National Intelligence

Data breaches compromising personal information result in a broad range of risks to individuals. This includes identity theft, targeting of individuals with knowledge of sensitive government information and internal business processes, and other intelligence activities that use the personal information of U.S. citizens to undermine national security.

The following information is provided to help you understand how your personal information may be used by foreign intelligence services and their proxies, extremists, criminals, hackers, and other bad actors (“bad actors”); what actions to take to limit the risk of your information being exploited; and warning signs that you are being targeted.

Copy the link below to Federal Radio and paste to your browser. It will take you to a very informative and professional presentation on how to protect yourself and your confidential information when travelling. The video is sponsored by the National Counterintelligence and Security Center.

Smart Doors

Smart Doors

IMG_3391

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 play significant roles in our daily lives. They control stop lights, air conditioning (AKA HVAC), nuclear reactors, complex automated factories, and yes, for decades, our interlocking door systems.

PLCs don’t give operating instructions randomly. They are hard wired and pre-programmed with your operating instructions. They’ll transmit your instructions when you want and where, 24/7, every day. BTW, though done serially all this happens in the bat of an eye. We call this the “scenario of operation”.

A simple scenario of operation is “lock door A if door B is unlocked and remains unlocked”. That is a simple but fundamental act for an interlocking door system. Without that logic programmed in, both doors would be open and effectually lose “interlock’ functionality.

Doors can be programmed to work differently based on a multitude of requirements to accommodate a client’s need, and local codes. With the appropriate technologies in place, any operational requirement imaginable can be programmed into a PLC that will make the doors do what you want they and when.

Smart doors can now be controlled. Smart doors can be controlled and monitored from pretty much anywhere via web or cellular connectivity with smart phones, tablets, or dedicated wireless remotes.

Doors exist for a reason, what are yours? Do you need to protect or secure your facility, courthouse, airport, or hospital, but unsure how best to instruct and control your doors? Give us a call or send us a message. We can help.

Ballistic and Hurricane Resistant Aluminum

Ballistic and Hurricane Resistant Aluminum

SAM_0042

Isotec uses a 6061-T6 aluminum alloy for our doors and frames in our Safety Entrances™. The 6061 alloy has 64% greater strength to weight ratio, 72% greater tensile strength, and 75% 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 measured by the maximum stress that a material can withstand while being stretched or pulled before breaking. This is important for our structures, doors, and ballistic glass need to withstand the energy generated by gunfire.

Shear strength . A shear load is a force that tends to produce a sliding failure on a material along a plane that is parallel to the direction of the force. In structural and mechanical engineering, the shear strength of a component is important for designing the dimensions and materials to be used for the manufacture or construction of the component like transom, oversized doors and side walls with glass panels that can weigh more 300 pounds.

Most importantly, the 6061-T6 alloy has a greater ballistic resistance than and “wind load” capacity than 6063-T5.  For those of you who live in hurricane areas, you know the importance of having buildings and structures that can stand up to 150mph plus hurricane force winds.
