Tornado Alert NE Quadrant of T.S. BILL

Weather forecasters are saying that the northeast quadrant of Tropical Storm BILL is where most tornadoes are likely to spring up. That includes my house, but I am not worried. 

 Unlike most people i have Armor Glass security film on my windows — designed to take up to a 4.5 lb. Large Missile impact (like a tree limb or a street sign) without blowing out my glass. A breach of you glass is what leads to uplift on the roof and structural failure as depicted in this photo from “Houses of Straw


Unlike those who have to go pull out heavy sheets of plywood and try to nail it up in rain and driving winds, or hang fabric on the outside when these storms threaten, my house is already protected 24/7/365 days a year.

This would be a good time to check out “Houses of Straw” before contacting us for a free quote. Find out how to harden your house of straw so it doesn’t get blown away by howling winds.

Thoughts from a High Rise on the Edge of the Bay as Tropical Storm BILL Comes Our Way…

I have to say — living next to a lake and bay — one good thing is that I feel much more secure despite the high winds knowing that my company’s polycarbonate security film is “armoring the glass.”  Otherwise I’d feel like a sitting duck – glass blowing out means nothing good. 

 I had no idea how vulnerable I was all those years until I was told about the technology and began to study it.It happens because of wind-borne debris strikes, and sometimes just from pure suction as happened to the Chase tower during IKE. 

Not for me. With Tropical Storm BILL bearing down I could not care less. 

I have “armored by glass” the weakest link that leads to structural failure when breached. And I am 4 stories up including the underground parking. If water gets this high there will no longer be a Houston!

The ground-based cars are the only problem in rising water. Now where is my helicopter — or flying amphibious car to get out of here after the next IKE? 

LOL.

What happens when glacial melt raises the sea level another 3 feet…? Our car parking spaces will become an underwater boat dock.

We must upgrade our buildings for stronger storms — Adapt or die folks. 

My advice: Upgrade what you have, where you are, when you can (to paraphrase a Teddy Roosevelt quote I love, “Do What You Can, With What You Have, Where You Are”). 

The Climate has become extreme and is not our friend anymore. We can’t survive it in “houses of straw.

ALERT – TROPICAL Storm Possible on Texas Coast – & How Dallas Police Need Armor Glass

Forecasters say that we have  a 50-50 chance of Texas being hit by some kind of TROPICAL STORM winds in a few days. As covered in our book “Houses of Straw” windborne debris from high winds breaking windows that leads to internal damages and structural failure.  Our installation calendar is already full for the week for people wanting security from break-ins.

Yesterday, the Dallas Police could have used Armor Glass protection when a man attacked their building and set off an explosive that shattered windows. Armor Glass security film would have provided protection from blown out windows — basically preventing the glass from injuring people.


Stay tuned to this Armor Glass blog for updates as the situation develops.  In the meantime, the Free EBook “Houses of Straw” will give you details on how vital this technology is to your safety.
