Why Armor Glass®?
Armor Glass® Solar/Hurricane film saves energy and “Armors Your Glass!”
Our Armor Glass® window security film “armor your glass” from breach by burglars, solar heat, hurricanes, tornadoes, explosions, golf balls, etc. At the same time it saves enough energy to pay for itself over time. It is an “Energy Star” product and “carbon negative” meaning that it saves more energy than it takes to make it.
Glass is your buildings weakest link. Armor Glass® solar/hurricane film is the best USA-made, certified window security film available and costs a fraction of impact glass and shutters. It works 24/7. No more “boarding up!” It is the same film used on DC Federal buildings after 9/11, including the Pentagon. We installed it on a lady’s house recently. Five (5) days later someone tried to break in, and failed!
Armor Glass® security films cut up to 79% of solar heat penetrating a window (which cuts energy use). They have passed the Large Missile Impact Test (4.5 lb Level “C”) and GSA3b/3a Level 2 Blast certified.
- Comes in Clear or Solar Tint
- Protects & Saves energy (enough to pay for itself) – Cuts up to 79% of solar heat
- “Armors Your Glass” from window breach by Burglars, Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Tornadoes, Vandals, Shooters, and Explosions.
- Blocks 99% of harmful UV rays that cause fading and skin cancer.
- Costs a Fraction of Alternatives: Impact Glass, Shutters, etc.
- Passed the Large Missile Impact Test/ Level 2 Blast certified
Caution: SOLAR FILM IS NOT SECURITY FILM! Solar film is only 2 mil thick. It blocks only the sun but not wind-borne debris that breaks a window, allowing internal wind pressure that pushes off the roof, leading to structural collapse in a storm. A brick will penetrate both the window and the thin solar film. Security Film (which is 8 mil thick or more) can also be Solar (tinted) film, and save enough energy to pay for itself, while also providing window breach protection.
Not all “Security” Film is secure. Has it passed the Large Missile hurricane or GSA Blast tests? Untested products often fail when you need them the most.
We have installed Armor Glass® solar/hurricane film in houses, large and small, across the U.S. and Texas.
Armor Glass® solar security film replaces the need for heavy, ugly plywood and expensive shutters.
What is Armor Glass®?
It is a USA-made, high-tech polycarbonate film that is applied to your existing glass, which armors it from breach by impact by either hurricane-force winds or human intrusion. Flying glass injuries thousands every year, and it also kills. We sell it because the same film was chosen for installation on all federal buildings in DC, etc. after 9/11 (for explosion protection). Window breaks lead to roof uplift as the winds enter and look for a way out. That leads to structural failure in storms, and burglar break-ins. Armor Glass® upgrades a material – glass – that has not evolved in 5,000 years, until now. More details in the Free EBook “Houses of Straw.”
Can I get a FREE quote?
Yes. In fact, we need to inspect each building to determine what kind of glass you have in order to give you a valid quote. We provide this at no charge or obligation. It gives you a chance to also see the film choices against your own windows. Our rep will then measure the windows and run the numbers through an Excel program to determine the exact cost, which are then emailed to you.
Does it go on the inside or outside of the glass?
Armor Glass® typically goes on the inside of the glass, so it is out of the weather and is also providing a polycarbonate (plastic) barrier between those on the inside of the building and the broken glass. There are some occasions where it has to be applied on the outside of a particular window. For example, sometimes a bath window was installed with the rough side on the inside. We need to apply it to the smooth side. We have done some schools which wanted the film applied to both sides of the glass to prevent glass injuries and to impede a shooter or intruder. But normally it is applied only on the inside of the glass.
