Know Your Lock Types?

Building or renovating a home is a lot of hard work. From the blueprints to the wallpaper there’s decisions to be made at every turn. While many first home builders or renovators depend on the experts they employ or quick decisions using the knowledge they have, one commonly overlooked yet vitally important part of building any structure is considering security. Whether it’s a home or business, you’ll need to ensure you have safely equipped your home with security measures to deter any form of theft. It’s also important to consider other factors such as whether you have kids, whether you rent your home out while you’re away on holiday (such as Airbnb), whether you have several people that require access and how you’d like to manage that and so many other variables. Door locks aren’t as simple as you might there – there is an array of choices out there and each are suited to certain situations and conditions.

We came across this fantastic infographic created by Precision Locksmiths which identifies the various types of popular locks in modern constructions, as well as the applications, level of security and ease of use all in a handy chart so you can make a good decision about the type of security both the internal, external and gated entrances to your home.

Recommending Counselling to Loved Ones

When a loved is in pain, you always want to help. Unfortunately when that pain is mental or emotional it can feel like there is nothing you can do. Perhaps they are going through a divorce, a death or some other kind of loss. A good way to provide support to your loved one is to suggest and help them to find (if they ask) a counsellor. This gives them the opportunity to talk with someone separate from the event. In the case of a devastating event such as a death or loss, often all the support network are affected and therefore less able to help. A counsellor is experienced in providing a safe place to talk as well as strategies for coping.
