This month we put Armor Glass security film on a couple key buildings in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in Louisiana – 50 year old buildings 16 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. This is America’s emergency supply of oil. They are sitting ducks built back in the 1970’s.
Today I learned that they are “Sheltering in Place” due to the weather. So Armor Glass is protecting staff and buildings at one of America’s most valuable assets.
WOW. Didn’t see that coming!
We “armored their glass” — most of it ancient wire glass –and reinforced it by applying our 8 mil special polycarbonate certified security film on top of their window glass to strengthen it from breach from wind-borne debris, hurricane-force winds or an explosion.
I found out on the job that we had replaced 3M for the project — they trusted our technology more! This happens a lot. Not just in Texas but across America architects have been choosing Armor Glass film as the gold standard.
If you look at the specs for Pearland School district you can confirm they wanted 8 Mil Armor Glass film to protect their students, staff and buildings. But they aren’t alone. Over the year more and more school districts have specing “8 Mil Armor Glass” security film for their schools. Armor Glass is now installed on a number of schools now, both public and private — providing both shooter and storm protection while cutting harmful UV and cutting energy and solar heat.
This is why I love my job as founder of Armor Glass.
Our technology is protecting people across America now – from Brownsville/El Paso/Houston/Dallas/Ft Worth TX to Florida…it pays for itself in so many ways in this insecure world of high winds and people with guns or bricks hitting fragile glass, the beginning of the end of security for all those inside. Armor Glass film is also on buildings in DC – installed after 911.
Let us give you a quote today to protect you when events go insane like today in Louisiana, a facility that was inherently unsafe until Armor Glass film was installed.
As founder, I feel good knowing that for the first time they have real protection from violent weather (and human intrusion)–to get in I had to pass through security that made the airport stuff look like a cakewalk!
Check us out today and armor your weakest link.
When storms hit these are 3 things to include in your Storm Emergency Kit.
No. 1. Hurricanes and tornadoes destroy building when wind-borne debris breaks the weakest link, the glass. Those winds look for a way out and the easy way out is to uplift the roof. That immediately allows internal damages from flying glass and water, mold, etc. So, “armor that glass” with our 8 mil Clear (cuts 21% of solar heat) or Solar tint (cuts 50% of solar heat) which is hurricane-explosion-large missile impact-rated. No need to “board up!” And, as you can see, it can fit any size glass of any shape. It even curves!
When Hurricane IKE and Harvey hit Houston, people lost power for days – some for two weeks. The same happened when Hurricane Michael hit Florida. When IKE cut my power, I had to plug it into my car charger and hope I didn’t run out of gas or run down my battery.
No. 2. So I found this solar charger for cell phones.
No. 3. But then I found something even better – a device on Amazon that is a radio, a cell phone charger, a flashlight, and a siren. It can charge by hand-crank, sun-power and it also has a place for a battery (even recharge-ables). This device is small enough to take on trips or camping so you don’t run out of phone power in event of an emergency. This will give people weather information and keep their phones working when there is no other power.
Get prepared! When the storm comes its too late to call or go shopping for emergency supplies.
Armor Glass film is not just for hurricane protection or keeping shooters from breaching the glass. It can also protect from vicious TORNADOES.
Tornadoes kill building just like hurricanes. They throw windborne debris though the glass. That instantly UPLIFTS the roof and its goodbye building. If you “armor the glass” your building has a better chance of surviving those winds then with regular glass–like this high rise in Dallas that had windows stripped out by tornado winds.
TEXAS actually has the HIGHEST number of reports of Tornadoes (131) according to this NOAA report.
Our 8 mil film has passed the ASTM 1886/1996 Large Missile Impact test (4.5 lb. Level C). Compare that to what happens when a two x four hits a regular double-pane glass window in the photo below–it goes through the unprotected window, but stops at the window with Armor Glass film bonded to the frame!
