Lately we’ve been seeing an alarming increase in apartment break-ins in New York City and on the Upper West Side in particular.
Most of the times the break-ins are through the fire escape window, simply breaking the window from the outside of the fire escape is enough to get inside, only if there is no window gate on the fire escape that is!
Don’t say “it won’t happen to me” and don’t wait until it’s too late, install a fire escape window gate today and protect the ones that are valuable to you the most.
At Metro Local Locksmith we supply and install fire escape window gates that are FDNY approved for maximum safety, security and peace of mind, it’s not as expensive as you’d think, actually it’s pretty damn affordable.
Metro Local Locksmith’s metal work.
Anyone who has ever been to or experienced a break-in knows first hand how hard and unpleasant it is, knowing that someone has been to your place when you weren’t there is horrific, but actually being there while it happens is even worse.
Every fire escape window gate is costume built and manufactured for a specific window, no two windows are exactly alike, there for we must come over and take exact measures of the window frame before making your window gate.
If you already have a window gate but it’s an old style one (sliding door instead of swinging door) that isn’t safe or not working properly, maybe it’s time to replace it with a new one that is FDNY approved, a pad lock is not a safe form of a gate locking mechanism, your window gate should have a door that swings on hinges to the inside of the room and have a thumb-turn lock that can easily be open from the inside (incase there’s a fire and you need to exit quickly through the window), while remaining untouchable from the out side of the window.
When someone breaks the glass on a window that has a window gate on it, it stops them completely from being able to get in, a broken window can be replaced, a broken into apartment will never feel the same again.
The one place you should be able to feel completely safe and secure in is your own apartment, if you can’t feel safe there, you wouldn’t feel safe anywhere!
