Security Window Invented

LOCHANS MAN Isaac Forsyth is on the verge of a major breakthrough with a life-saving security window system he has invented.

With the aid of a grant from the Small Towns Initiative, fifty-four-year-old Isaac can now have a prototype window made. And he is confident that he can interest a major firm involved in safety equipment to market his invention.

As the "Free Press" revealed in April, Isaac wants to open a factory in Stranraer to make his revolutionary window, which he calls SALEM or save a life every minute.

Although the window is fitted with security bars to deter intruders, in the event of a fire or other emergency, it can be opened easily from the inside, allowing a way out for people trapped in the building.

Things have moved apace since his story first appeared. Bell College in Hamilton said they were prepared to make a prototype window at a cost of 5600. And the Small Towns Initiative in Stranraer agreed a grant to cover the cost of the work.

"The prototype will now be ready in about eight weeks time", Isaac told the "Free Press" this week.

"The grant was a Godsend".
