Commercial Security/Solar Film

Armor Glass® solar security film replaces the need for heavy, ugly plywood and expensive shutters. It comes in both Clear and Tint options to cut solar heat and deadly UV rays. It works 24/7 once it is in place on your windows –a marvel of high technology that began with the space age. Security film was first used in Northern Ireland in the 70’s to protect from flying glass from car bombs. Florida and Washington DC has also used it extensively

Solar film (usually 2 mil or less) is not considered security film but security film can also be solar film. Solar film protects only from the sun but is useless in protecting from break-ins and hurricanes. Security film is 8 mil or thicker and provides protection from intrusions by the sun, humans and mother nature’s fury. And unlike plywood, you don’t have to put-it-up-take-it-down, store it for bugs and rodents to nest in – or figure out how to drag it up multiple stories.

Project Safe Windows

After the devastating 2004 hurricane season (which was followed by Katrina and Rita in 2005) the Protecting People First Foundation commissioned ABS Consulting to study the impact of hurricanes on various window-protection technologies. They studied Shutters, Hurricane Screens, Impact Resistant Glass (Laminated), Plywood—and Safety and Security Window Film.

They found that installing hurricane screens and impact resistance glass can reduce the impact of damages caused by natural disasters.

Security Film for Windows Helps Prevent Burglary

Our security film was installed on Washington DC federal buildings after 9/11 (because of its blast protection). We have sold and installed the same film in commercial buildings nationwide (and internationally) – providing security from explosions, hurricanes, vandals, burglars, tornadoes, earthquakes, etc while cutting energy costs dramatically. Even our clear film cuts 99% of UV that causes fading, skin cancer and fire hoses to fall apart every couple years.

Our security film is bonded to the window frames with a special Dow 995 sealant on commercial applications. With this bonding and our 8 Mil hurricane film (which is also GSA 3a/3b explosion rated), none of the windows blown out of the Chase Tower building during Hurricane IKE would have blown out — even if broken! Millions of dollars of internal damages and potential injuries on the streets below would have been avoided. Our film would keep people from being killed or injured by flying glass in an explosion.

Our film “Armors the Glass” of storefronts and avoids window breach at banks, offices, hospitals, restaurants, chain stores – anything with glass is vulnerable and needs our protection. This is the 21st century and threats from hurricanes and explosions, along with the sun, will be constant. Hurricanes are annual events. Burglars and the potential terrorist blast are ever present.

Our installations include the following:

  • All public buildings for Chambers County, TX (Anahuac), after it was hit by IKE, including the historic courthouse, police department, tax offices, community centers, court annexes, airport buildings, etc.
  • Seabrook, Texas City Hall
  • Coca Cola distribution facility, Houston
  • University of Houston
  • Rice University, (Weiss Dorm, etc.), Houston
  • Houston Community College
  • JP Morgan Chase Bank, Long Island, NY
  • Sparrow Hospital ICU for premature babies, Lansing, MI
  • Kelsey Seybold Pharmacies
