Nashville Bombing – How Armor Glass protects from Level 2 explosion

This is a video of the Nashville bomb blast – blowing out the glass windows with the blast pressure wave, turning a peaceful scene into hell instantly.

There is a way to protect yourself from this.

Armor Glass security film is applied to the glass and bonded to the frames with a special sealant. It is rated for a Level 2 explosion. It is “armoring the glass” you have. In a bomb blast, hurricane-force winds, or tornado impact, the film contains the broken glass. The structural sealant bonding anchors it to the window frame.

In other words, if people were inside this building when the blast hit and Armor Glass film was on the windows and doors, they could have survived —  instead of being shredded with glass as this video demonstrates.

That is why this same security film was put on the Pentagon and all federal buildings after 911, starting in 2002. They wanted the blast protection and the same film is still working today. We use it for hurricane and burglar protection as well and for school shooters.

While this blast remains a mystery at the time of this writing, the video does show vividly why our special security film is needed on every pane of glass in the country to save lives and property. It is affordable, unlike armored glass that no one can afford. Once the walls are breached by the blast wave, no one inside has a chance; the instant pressurization will raise the roof and blow out walls, just like what happens when a hurricane or tornado breaches your glass.

With Armor Glass security film on your weakest link, you are a lot safer 24/7/365 than without it.

Massive Explosion in Chinese city blows out Windows – Causing injuries and death

A super massive explosion in the Chinese city of Tianjin showed how even an explosion miles away can blow out window glass, causing injuries and death. Here is a photo posted on Twitter of an apartment littered with glass and blood after the explosion:

Armor Glass security film is Level 2 explosion rated.  It would have deflected the blast wave – or kept the glass intact if the frame collapsed, minimizing injuries.

Hundreds of people were injured and some killed by being struck by flying glass during this explosion. It’s one more benefit of Armor Glass, in addition to providing burglar and storm protection, while reducing solar heat.

Former Terrorism Analyst Seeks Insurance Discount for Texans Who Install Security Window Film

Former Terrorism Analyst Seeks Insurance Discount for Texans Who Install 
Security Window Film To Protect Their Homes and Businesses. 
It Cuts Property Damage and Injuries
While Paying for Itself in Energy Savings
21 February 2015                              
Immediate Release

Recently a small child ran into a glass wall shortly after Armor Glass security film was installed and broke the glass. If not for the security-rated film, she would have been taken to an emergency room for cuts, injuries and medical bills. Instead, the film shielded her from broken glass and she was fine.
About the same time, a woman was home alone when a burglar attempted to break through the glass in her back yard shortly after Armor Glass security film was installed. He failed. In each case, certified security film (sometimes called “safety film”) avoided loss and injuries.
What is that worth? 
How many thousands of dollars in insurance losses was avoided because of this technology that costs a fraction of impact glass and shutters? 
How much personal stress and anxiety was avoided?
Michael Fjetland, President of Armor Glass®, based in Houston (Sugar Land), TX, has requested the Texas legislature give homeowners an insurance discount if they install security window film equivalent to what Armor Glass provides — because it cuts property losses and personal injury by “armoring the glass.” 
Glass is a 5,000 year old technology — the weakest link of every building. A home is often the biggest asset most people own.  Thin, fragile glass leaves it vulnerable to destruction. 
Hurricane Ike in 2008 caused over $5 million of dollars in damages to the Chase Tower in Houston when it sucked out windows from one side of the building, shutting it down for months of rehab, mold issues, etc. Armor Glass film and frame attachment would have prevented the huge financial loss from the property damage and operating downtime. Imagine how many billions of dollars the installation of Armor Glass would have saved. The problem is not just hurricanes and tornadoes, but a constant one nationwide with broken glass caused by; vandals, burglars, hail, mowers throwing rocks, hurricanes, tornadoes, errant golf balls, etc.

Security/safety films like Armor Glass upgrades this ancient glass technology for the first time. Details
about how it works are provided in Michael Fjetland’s  EBook “Houses of Straw” which is FREE for download at www.ArmorGlass.com
“Our security film has been used to secure courthouses, police stations, community centers and houses on Galveston Bay which took the brunt of Hurricane Ike. It has protected our clients from home invasions. It’s rated for a bomb blast,” said Armor Glass® President and founder, Michael Fjetland, who was a terrorism analyst on TV before and after 9/11 and served as a Fortune 500 international legal negotiator
before founding Armor Glass®.
“It would also cut millions from construction costs of new buildings, especially those in coastal areas if it were used as a substitute for impact glass or shutters which cost three to ten times more per square foot.”
”I hope the Texas legislature will see the wisdom of economically encouraging this technology by providing a reasonable insurance discount that would cost the state nothing, yet it would cut injuries to Texans, cut property losses and reduce harm to their children or themselves. A house or building is typically a person’s largest asset. Certified security films dramatically cut insurance company costs by protecting the interior of the building from damage.
                                         A “Win – Win – Win for Texas and Texans
Fjetland states, “A discount on insurance premiums for use of safety/security films would make Texans safer with the benefit of reducing cooling costs in the Texas’ brutal summer heat. It is a win-win for everyone involved, with insurance losses significantly reduced, lower utility costs and an increased level of security for the consumer, and with the added benefit of removing over 99 percent of the UV.
Michael Fjetland’s bottom line: “I believe the benefits of lower insurance losses should be shared with consumers. Many owners need the insurance discount (and tax credits) as an incentive to make the investment. Everyone would benefit under my proposal — Texans and insurance companies alike.
If you agree, please let your legislature representatives know.”
