The Armor Glass crew and I just returned from putting our security film on a school in the Texas Panhandle. We aren’t advertising which one out of safety concerns because we don’t put any marker on the glass to indicate its there. (The 8 Mil Clear version is invisible on the glass, and the frame bonding looks much like a regular black gasket, but is anchoring the film to the frame).
Our security film is being installed on schools and glass everywhere to stop shooters and burglars (it doesn’t stop the bullet, but stops the shooter).
Armor Glass security film and the anchor bonding holds glass in place after being shot, when normally the glass blows out and the shooter walks through an empty glass frame in one or two seconds.
Armor Glass buys TIME. It delays the shooter at the entrance for precious time, giving people inside time to flee, grab a gun or lock down — and police time to confront the shooter who is still at the entrance trying to breach the barrier instead of inside killing people and hiding in some corner or hallway.
Of course, it doesn’t help if the shooter is already inside, as happened at the Walmart in El Paso. That is why the film should be used with automatic door locks to create a “man trap” in which the shooter cannot go inside the glass without first spending time making a hole big enough for him to crawl through.
Seconds count in these situations. The shooter in Dayton Ohio was killed by police in 40 seconds! Imagine if Armor Glass film provided even 40 seconds of protection to those inside a glass entrance?
