Its HURRICANE season folks. Get prepared. But what does “get prepared” include? DON’T do what the guy in the photo is doing!
Obviously, it means having a plan. A “Go” bag for a quick departure if you are in the forecast zone for impact. But what about your biggest investment – your house? Or your office? How do you prepare it from hurricane-force winds?
The weakest link of every building is the glass – when it is breached by hurricane-force winds, the building is pressurized as the winds try to find a way out. That “out” is what uplifts the roof and pushes the walls out. When IKE hit Houston it blew out windows over 100 miles inland.
Plywood is heavy and expensive and a suicide mission to get on a 2nd floor. Shutters are very expensive and don’t protect from heat or burglars when up.
Security Film “armors the glass” from breach while at the same time it is cutting solar heat and UV from entering the building – or a burglar with a brick. It costs a fraction of impact glass or shutters.
Lets the first part of “getting prepared” you should do. Harden your buildings’ envelop by upgrading the glass which is an accident waiting to happen.
This also protects your home or office while you are gone. And saves on energy. Check us out at:
