Auto dealerships need every tool and opportunity to show customers their latest vehicles on the showroom floor. Part of that challenge is to bring more natural light into the dealership workplace while making things more comfortable for the sales personnel working the rounds. That involves choosing and installing new windows.
Making sure an auto dealer is “open” to the light cannot be stressed enough for such places in Indianapolis. Almost every dealership has the common formula of big structures and a wide-open lot, with the facades having large expanses of glass. When you need a clearer enclosure for your own dealership, count on companies like Suburban Glass Services, Inc (SGS) to help you seize the day.
Stores always face the threat of being broken into and robbed, especially those with glass storefronts and windows that are easy to penetrate. When some unguided youngsters suddenly decide to go on a window-breaking spree—for some reason—your store could be an easy target. Some businesses in the city have been raided in past months, for instance, with gun or liquor stores among the favored ones.
In a similar incident in Belltown, WA, vandals also hit a grocery store, a seafood restaurant, and an adventure store during a rampage. According to an article in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the restaurant had its large and medium windows damaged, while the adventure store lost two very large windows. Luckily for the grocery store, only a door window was hit.

Performance in terms of energy efficiency.
Most glass inserts consist of three panes of glass for energy efficiency. The decorative panel is sealed between two panes of tempered glass, thus insuring an airtight seal and for ease of cleaning.
Mirrors have always been used to magically create space, and are thus used in interior design to make smaller rooms look larger. They can be designed with decorative frames, or shaped intricately and hung to resemble artwork. They can be the focal point of a room, or the chic piece that helps tie everything together.
Indeed, glass mirrors, when arranged to harmonize with the other elements in the room, can make a room look classier. If you want to use this accessory to make a tasteful, decorative statement, play around with these following ideas for every room in your house:
Even a small powder room or shower can look ten times more gorgeous when you decorate it with a beautifully crafted mirror. For larger bathrooms, the glass décor can make the space feel grander.
WTHR Channel 13 reports that the Indianapolis Metro Police are investigating a break-in at the Indiana Blood Center, which they found ransacked with a computer equipment missing, apparently taken by the intruders. So far, the IMPD has determined that someone broke a window glass by throwing a brick through it. A stronger safety glass, used in doors, such as tempered or laminated cannot be broken as easily as standard window glass. If the business or residence is susceptible to break-ins, then glass can be replaced in the windows that will make it much harder to break. They have recovered blood and print evidence from the crime scene. The blood center stated that neither employee nor donor information was taken, or was ever accessible.
It’s stinkbug season in Indianapolis, according to a report by WCNC. Peter Jentsch, an entomologist from Cornell University, says that these insects start being active in March and April—but their objective is to find a way out of your house. They’ll try to come back inside starting September to shield themselves from winter.
Jentsch states that stinkbugs are more of a nuisance than a threat. They won’t eat your things and they don’t bite. The annoyance comes from their defense mechanism. When threatened, they secrete a substance that tastes and smells foul, hence their name. You may simply leave the bugs alone, and let them complete their journey out of your house. However, if you have kids or pets in the house, it’s only a matter of time before you get a whiff of the stink.
One important part of any business improvement or renovation project is choosing doors in Indianapolis. This is because the front doors are primarily the businesses main security feature, aside from it being the first thing that people see from the outside. A primary consideration, therefore, is what material the door will be made of. There are a lot of options for this, and the popular ones are wood, steel, and aluminum.
Probably the most common door choice is wood. It comes in various finishes, like oak, walnut, and pine, among others. It is easy for a business owner to find a style that would go perfectly with the buildings interior and exterior. This is a good choice as it gives the establishment that high-end look.
