Taiwan just got hit by a Monster Typhoon (hurricane) that was one of the planet’s largest – 180 mph winds at one point!  We have to ask the question: when the Atlantic Ocean gets as HOT as the Pacific Ocean is now, are we going to be getting these off the scale CAT 5’s instead…

One of our customers had someone try to break in his (front) glass door armored with our film. This week. A neighbor saw it unfold and called the police as she watched. We just got these photos from John N who lives in Houston. The burglar used the homeowners own ADT sign shaft as the…

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…

Weather forecasters are saying that the northeast quadrant of Tropical Storm BILL is where most tornadoes are likely to spring up. That includes my house, but I am not worried.   Unlike most people i have Armor Glass security film on my windows — designed to take up to a 4.5 lb. Large Missile impact (like…

Yesterday, while Armor Glass was exhibiting at a conference on hurricanes in Galveston, I was fortunate to meet Bill Read (the hurricane guy, now retired from NOAA and working for KPRC in Houston as their hurricane expert) and Frank Billingsley, the chief KPRC Weather guy.

Who Needs Armor Glass? Anyone whose property is on this long list that says “burglary of a habitation” – this is a link to an actual crime list in Ft Bend County, part of the Houston metroplex. You will find most of them entered after breaking the GLASS – easily done with a brick in…

Don’t let this happen to you. This story in the Houston Chronicle describes how a family hear a glass door break and as many as 10 men rushed in and held them hostage, even pointing guns at an 8 year old.                              Above: Burglars LOVE Glass – Even a child can break it                                Above:…

  It was reported that Texas had at least 8 tornadoes over the weekend. One was reported to be “a mile wide.” The Texas panhandle near Amarillo got softball size HAIL that looked like a snow storm.   Here is a video showing what HAIL can do to your windows:            …

This is an excellent VIDEO showing HAIL reported to be “soft ball size” hitting a car near Stephenville Tx and BREAKING the windshield.
