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.
