“GCD”, Windsor: punk haircut

“GCD Security” burglar alarm, Windsor • This sounder looks like it’s got a punk haircut, and I like the way Thunderbirds-modern Eurostile font logo matches the cobalt sky. You don’t often get days like this in England – apart from the burglar alarm, the scene looks more like Florida than Windsor. The photo was taken by a very patient burglar alarm-hunting companion, who’s actually more interested in Neanderthals than burglars, and tweets about our ancient ancestors here.• Spotted: Town centre, Windsor, Berkshire, SL4, England, 2009 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Windsor

  1. GCD Security were asked for any years in Maidenhead Berks. in fact, when NACOSS, the industry regulator moved to new premises a few years ago thy were literally around the corner from them…..I mean walking distance on te same estate, however, NACOSS chose to use Initial Electronic Security for here building. Since then, Initial aquired GCD, who them seves re part of UTC who own Chubb. Our own company used his style of steel bell box for a short tie. It was manufactured by. Firm called Nintek Engineering who no longer exist. It has a horn weaker, rear tamper switch, bolt tamer switch with integral PCB with Nicad battery for self actuating purposes.
