People who Live in GLASS Houses…

People who live in GLASS houses, should

(3) avoid being near the glass during hurricane-force winds and
(4) know burglars love glass because it is so easy to break through ….

We Get the Most Unusual Calls – From Cannabis stores to Armored Hummers

One of the amusing things about heading up Armor Glass is the unique calls we get.  So far this year we have been asked to supply Armor Glass security film for

(1) a Hollywood movie scene for Keanu Reeves

(2) A cannabis store on the west coast, and

(3) A company that makes armored cars and is trying to beef up the glass in Hummers.

Numbers 2 and 3 came in this week. Obviously, a store selling cannabis that has glass windows needs to keep someone from breaking the glass late at night and hauling off the inventory.  Apparently they also have to keep the “merchandise” hidden from street view, so the silver tint version appealed to the owner.

The Hummer company is armoring cars. Apparently Hummers come with standard glass and bullet proof glass can’t be rolled up or down – so our product appealed to them because even with 8 mil (rate for Large Missile impact) still allows the windows to be rolled up and down. I know because i put it on a van i owned a few years ago. Most car tinters use a thin 2 mil film that is cut by computers. That won’t keep people from breaking in.

A couple weeks ago it was a set designer for an upcoming movie that wanted to try out Armor Glass on a room of mirrors for a scene. I am not volunteering to duel Keanu in a room of glass!

All this is in addition to providing a security film that has kept burglars from breaking in as well as hurricane-force winds from breaking windows and lifting off roofs.  It has kept schools safe from shooters and retired teachers safe from tornadoes that act like hurricanes in tearing apart buildings.

Not to mention cutting solar heat, energy bills and deadly UV. Check it out and our free ebook – how people are living in “Houses of Straw“…and how to armor your weakest link.

Over 6 tornadoes Hit Houston area –

According to news reports, Texas had a series of tornadoes from Lake Jackson to Alvin to Friendswood and La Porte.

Tornadoes are like condensed hurricanes. They throw debris through the weakest link of a building–its glass. Once the winds get inside they cause an uplift that blows the roof off and walls out. It happens in seconds.

If you look at this video of tornado damage in La Porte you will notice that each house has BROKEN WINDOWS! THAT is why they lost the roof!

Fortunately, we have a number of clients in those areas that were hit who had Armor Glass security film already installed on their homes or businesses. It goes over the existing glass to “armor” it from breach by impact from wind-borne debris or human intrusion.

Moral: Don’t wait for the storm to get protection, because then it is too late!

Find out how it works in “Houses of Straw” –because that is what most people are living in until they armor the weakest link, their windows!
