Secure Doors & Keyfree Locks – Grays, Essex

Secure by Design is an innovation from the Association of Chief Police Officers recognising security features that are built into the design of front doors, back doors, windows and locks. PVCu and GRP Composite Doors from Essex Trade Windows have incorporated a number of key security features from the strength of the component parts, the construction around galvanised steel frames and the integration of multi–point lock and latch systems.

One extra security choice available with both GRP composite doors and PVCu front doors is the addition of keyfree locks. Keyfree Locks from Yale are Secure by Design products that offer a triple entry access system that is safe and easy to use.

Keyfree Locks can be operated by a fob system similar to the design often used for car doors. For home–owners and tenants who don’t want to carry keys or fobs with them there is programmable keypad entry. Security codes can be shared with others as required and can be easily re-programmed to new numbers as the need arises. Finally there is a standard key override capability for those who prefer the old–fashioned lock and key.

The Canvey Island Monster

PVCu & GRP Composite Doors in Billericay, Canvey Island & GraysThe Canvey Island Monster is the name given to an unusual creature whose remains were first washed up on the shore of Canvey Island in November 1953. This was the year of the Great Canvey Flood and storms and swells brought many unwanted visitors to the island.

The creature was described as being 76 cm long with thick reddish brown skin, bulging eyes and gills. It had hind limbs with five-toed, horseshoe–shaped feet but no forelimbs. A second, larger, specimen was washed up the following year. This one was 1.2 metres long and was in better condition, with eyes, teeth and nostrils intact for examination.

No formal identification was made and there is still only speculation as to what the creature was and what happened to the remains.

The Naming of Grays

Grays in Essex was named after Sir Henry de Grey (alt. Henry de Grai), born in Thurrock in 1155. Sir Henry was a favourite of Richard I and in 1195 was granted the Manor of Thurrock in Essex.

Sir Henry was the grandson of the Norman knight, Anchetil de Greye, a vassal of William the Conqueror.
