In Houston over the weekend of violent storms, an apartment building was hit by a tornado, tearing it apart. Armor Glass could have avoided that damage.
Here’s how and why. The photo below, taken from our ebook “Houses of Straw” shows what happens when wind-borne debris breaks through a glass window….

Engineers and architects will tell you that buildings are designed to resist EXTERNAL winds. But once a window breaks from debris hurled by high speed winds, then the wind goes inside and seeks a way out. That it what produces UPLIFT on the roof and blows walls out and roofs OFF. One engineer told me that a break can equal 50,000 lbs. of UPLIFT on the roof!
