A woman was home alone in a high-end Sugar Land home when the doorbell rang. She didn’t answer it, assuming the person would go away. She went back to the bedroom near a wall of glass facing their pool when suddenly she heard something crash against the glass a few feet away.
Normally when that happens the paver (or rock) goes through the glass, the intruder follows it, and is gone within 2 minutes — long before any police can arrive. In this event, he would have run right into the woman. Nothing good would have come from it.
Instead, the paver bounced off the glass! The impact crashed startled here, causing her to scream. And the guy — who had assumed no one was home — took off!
Yes, it cracked the glass but there was no breach, no broken glass all over the room and in the carpet, no hole to worry about, no need to call the glass company for an emergency visit, no possibility that the rains later that day will come in and spread mold. No personal confrontation between the woman and the robber.
All because of a special high-tech, polycarbonate 8 Mil Security Film that “armors your glass,” every building’s weakest link. It is rated for Miami Dade Hurricane-force winds and “large missile” impacts (think rock or a brick). It was installed on her windows by Armor Glass just a few weeks earlier. The same film was installed on the Pentagon and federal buildings after 911, yet it costs a fraction of impact glass and shutters that are three to ten times more per square foot. Those expensive options don’t cut the solar heat up to 50%, saving energy costs, or cut harmful UV 99% that causes skin cancer and furnishings to fade. Armor Glass Security Film does that.
All glass is fragile and an accident waiting to happen. When it fails in a hurricane, its goodbye house. Yet the cost of Armor Glass security film is so reasonable that retired teachers have had it installed. We have put it in schools for shooter protection (it delays the shooter at the glass entrance instead of blowing it out with a hail of bullets in one second.) We have installed on glass at NASA’s Mission Control, numerous Whataburger’s, homes, storefronts, hospitals, offices and schools.
On a residence, it’s a lifetime warranty. On a commercial building, it’s 12 years. Armor Glass films have prevented numerous break-in attempts on homes, and storefronts while providing 24/7/365 hurricane-force wind protection. No need to “board up” for a storm. No need to try the suicide mission of lugging heavy wood or shutters up a ladder to second-story windows!
Think of Armor Glass security film as “invisible burglar bars” or “invisible shutters.” It has prevented little kids from being hurt–one ran into a glass wall right after we installed our film. Instead of blood, a ruined event and trip to ER (with rain coming in through the broken window) and triple overhead weekend charges, the child bounced off the film and was not harmed and the party went on. The broken glass was out of the child’s reach on the outside.
