How to Protect from Hurricanes & Solar HEAT in one easy step

First we had a Record Subzero FREEZE. Now we are getting record HEAT. Within 4 months of each event! This Climate insanity is getting worse.

We had a record 2020 for hurricanes. Two CAT 5’s barely missed Houston and New Orleans. Instead, they laid waste to Lake Charles and the swamped the swamps between our cities. We may not be so lucky this year. Storms are already brewing.

Americans don’t tend to notice what’s happening overseas but the Asian version of hurricanes (Cyclones and Typhoons) have also been hitting record wind speeds and causing substantial damage. The same thing is happening south of the equator in places like Australia. The hotter air means BIGGER storms and more destruction unless people upgrade their weakest link.

Guess what is the first item in a building to blow out in a storm if its not reinforced? Yep. The glass. That breach means major internal damage and uplift on the roof.

What also knocks out 50% of solar heat from getting into your building? Yep….our Armor Glass Security Film…Not to mention providing burglar/shooter protection.

Armor Glass security film is your friend against both Mother Nature’s Fury and Human Intrusion. Check it out today. And the photo? Just wanted to get your attention for an important message :0).

A Walk in the Park Fries Your Brain — Screen out 99% Deadly UV

Today I took a walk in a park near NASA and was reminded about something not talked about enough – the sun was beating down with an intense solar heat we haven’t seen this year in Houston (which is ODD in itself). 

 
But it isn’t the solar heat I was concerned about. It was the UV, because it is deadlier. Here is a link to confirm that UV is a major cause of skin cancer.  In fact, is is our No. 1 cause of cancer! Exposure of even 15 minutes can spell trouble. It’s even worse for people who have already had skin cancer issues.
After my first lap, I put on a hat that I had in the car (something I bought in Belize or Mexico on a cruise stop.) 
 
When I drove home I was in a car with film on the glass that screens out 99% of UV. 
 
When I got home I have Armor Glass security film on the glass, screening out 99% of the UV that would be coming in and fading the flooring and grandma’s antiques (well, I really don’t have any antiques other than myself). 
                       A truck driver exposed to sun on his left side…
 
Bottom line: I am cutting my exposure to skin cancer with the same technology protecting me from break-ins, hurricanes, tornadoes and rioting neighbors (if the neighbors ever do riot.)  
 
This is yet another reason why we have the perfect solution to providing security by ‘armoring the glass’ you have, but also cutting solar heat and deadly UV at the same time.

Tornado Tears Apart Apartment in Houston – How Armor Glass Could Have Protected It

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….

 

Breaching a window results in UPLIFT on the roof. That leads to Structural collapse. 

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!

Bottom Line: Avoid the breach of the buildings weakest link, avoid losing your roof!

ARMOR GLASS basically armors your existing glass.  When impacted it will look like the photo below:

And what does Armor Glass LOOK like? This:


Get more details on how Armor Glass protects your biggest asset from storms, burglars, solar heat, UV, etc. by reading our FREE EBook “Houses of Straw” available at our Armor Glass website. You will see what to do, and what NOT to do to get the best protection.

“Houses of Straw” refers to what all of us are living in – that is, until you armor your glass.

Hurricane season starting EARLY in 2015? Low in the Atlantic…

Usually our Hurricane season doesn’t officially start until June 1 of every year and runs to November 30, and usually nothing ever happens until AUGUST — but not this year.  

We already have a mysterious LOW in the Atlantic that could prove to be our first storm of what is supposed to be a “slow” season. Maybe not!

Here is a photo of the current situation:


It does not look like a problem for the Gulf of Mexico at the moment but the fact that we are seeing low pressure in the Atlantic a month before the official beginning of hurricane season is a reason to be cautious and get prepared for a possible storm that no one expected. It’s been 7 years since Hurricane IKE hit Houston – so we can’t stay “lucky” indefinitely.

My gut says that when they say it will be a “slow” season is to expect the unexpected!
Hurricanes throw wind-borne debris through glass windows, allowing uplift on the roof that destroys a building. Armor Glass security film is designed to avoid a breach by large debris strikes (up to 4.5 lb), saving the interior from wind, rain, mold, flying glass and dangerous uplift.

Get more info from our Free EBook “Houses of Straw” at our website.

Recently we have been called by storefronts that have been broken into multiple times. We put security film on 8 stores for a well known regional restaurant chain and it has already prevented injuries when a motorcycle collided with a store and broke a window. It kept glass from spraying onto customers.

We have been taking care of homeowners with solar heat and security issues. We have put it on homes, churches, schools and private and public buildings.  Retired teachers have it, along with astronauts and engineers. Some of our clients are literally “out of this world” at the moment.

It costs nothing to get a quote.

How is it that one house is not destroyed in a storm when those next to it are?

20 April 2015
For Immediate Release
How is it that one house is not destroyed in a storm when those next to it are?


“Houses of Straw” is a FREE EBook that describes how buildings are destroyed by hurricane-force winds — and how to protect them using a technology that pays for itself over time in energy savings. Same technology was used after 911 on DC federal buildings.

“Houses of Straw” can be downloaded at https://armorglass.com or at this Lulu link:

Unbelievable Huge HAIL Hits Australia – Taste of what’s to come when Its Our Turn?

Australia entered its first day of fall (which is our first day of spring in the northern hemisphere) and was hit by a massive hailstorm with baseball size hail that locals say is “unprecedented.”  They had never witnessed anything like it. could this be a harbinger of what we will be facing when fall comes to the U.S.A.? 

Check out the wind damages:
