Red Alert: Possible HURRICANE heading towards Gulf of Mexico

The weather services reports that we have the makings of a potential HURRICANE Dan by the end of this week. Right now it is far enough south that it could get into the “slot” and into the Gulf of Mexico. 

We won’t now exactly where its going for several more days so “stay tuned” to this blog for updates here or at our Facebook page.

This would be a great time to read “Houses of Straw” – how hurricanes blow houses apart.

Man Breaks Window at STARBUCK’S – Lady Could Lose a Finger. Armor Glass Would Have Protected Them



This week in Houston a homeless man was outside a Starbucks, became agitated and hit the window with his fist, breaking the glass. 

Then he jumped into the window and landed on the table of two ladies having coffee.

They were taken to the hospital – one is reported to be in danger of losing a finger in the incident. 

Again, this shows how Armor Glass would have prevented those injuries and costs. With our protective film and frame bonding the man would not have penetrated the glass. The customers inside would have been spared the glass injuries.  

Our film prevented injuries from a similar incident at another major chain, saving them thousands in legal and medical costs.

GLASS IS DANGEROUS and FRAGILE. Armor it with Armor Glass. Isn’t it worth a FREE Quote?

Armor Glass china explosion injuries and deaths by flying glass Tianjin

Massive Explosion in Chinese city blows out Windows – Causing injuries and death

A super massive explosion in the Chinese city of Tianjin showed how even an explosion miles away can blow out window glass, causing injuries and death. Here is a photo posted on Twitter of an apartment littered with glass and blood after the explosion:

Armor Glass security film is Level 2 explosion rated.  It would have deflected the blast wave – or kept the glass intact if the frame collapsed, minimizing injuries.

Hundreds of people were injured and some killed by being struck by flying glass during this explosion. It’s one more benefit of Armor Glass, in addition to providing burglar and storm protection, while reducing solar heat.

Armor Glass Atlantic ocean hurricane security Soudelor Texas typhoon windows

MONSTER TYPHOON HITS TAIWAN CHINA – Are We Next?

Taiwan just got hit by a Monster Typhoon (hurricane) that was one of the planet’s largest – 180 mph winds at one point! 

We have to ask the question: when the Atlantic Ocean gets as HOT as the Pacific Ocean is now, are we going to be getting these off the scale CAT 5’s instead of the smaller ones like Hurricane IKE in 2008…?  I think it would be wise to prepare for that event.  If the Pacific is already that hot, eventually it will spread to the Atlantic.

i quote from the above linked article:

At its peak Monday afternoon (mainland U.S. time), Soudelor was estimated by the U.S. military’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) to pack maximum one-minute sustained winds of 180 mph and gusts to 220 mph.

                                   Eye of the Devil:   LOOK at that beast at 180 miles per hour!

The Japan Meteorological Agency estimated Soudelor’s central pressure at 8 a.m. EDT Tuesday was 900 millibars, making Soudelor the strongest tropical cyclone on Earth so far in 2015. That central pressure has come up quite a bit, reflecting Soudelor’s weakening, to an estimated 945 millibars.

According to the Digital Typhoon databaseSuper Typhoon Maysak was the year’s previous strongest typhoon, bottoming out at an estimated 910 millibars. South Pacific Cyclone Pam in March reached peak estimated sustained winds of about 165 mph (145 knots) in the South Pacific basin. “

 

YIKES! At that speed, windborne debris will definitely blow out glass causing structural failure.  Armor Glass has been tracking these and the strange thing is that the Pacific is getting repeated CAT 5 storms – time after time.  Whatever is going on to heat the air, the hotter air is creating bigger and meaner storms.

This would be a GOOD time to read “Houses of Straw“….how these winds destroy. And how to prepare.
