ARMOR GLASS STATEMENT ON COVID19 –We are Open and Essential.
Yet Safety of Crew and Customers is No. 1 Priority
As a security company, we remain open and essential. However, we are taking precautions to ensure the safety of our crew and clients. Our crews are self isolating until they can be assigned a safe job with clients who have been self-isolating for a minimum of 30 days.
Mother Nature is not going to give us a break despite COVID. Hurricane season will not be going away just because it would be really inconvenient to pile another disaster on top of another.
The BAD News is that Hurricane activity is predicted to be “ABOVE-Average” this year! I would be happy with “normal” but prepare for the worst and hope for the best (not the other way around).
Imagine how hard it would be to isolate if a hurricane blows out your windows and lifts your roof? With no power. We have already seen tornadoes rip apart buildings where people were self-isolating.
Don’t count on burglars to be isolating. They won’t be focused on homes because they know everyone is home! They focus on empty places with easy access to smash and grab glass windows and doors. In and out in less than 2 minutes! (Armor Glass messes that up bigtime).
We are getting calls from major chains that have been targeted by specialized crooks. Armor Glass security film is one part of that defense system (which should also include motion detection, etc.). So, security remains an issue due to continuing threats to our buildings that are all sitting ducks with fragile glass.
So with COVID, we are screening before committing to sending a crew. Our minimum safe zone is those people who have been in isolation 30 days or more. The other option is if we are installing in an empty building (like a church or school.)
Tornadoes just tore apart more buildings in large chunks of eastern America. NOW is prime time for these killers. They kill buildings the same way hurricanes do –by throwing wind-borne debris through your glass–destroying its “shield” which opens a hole for high-speed winds to roar inside, carrying glass and rain with it. That wind is pressurizing your building –like blowing up a balloon until it pops. That’s when up goes the roof and walls are pushed out. All in the blink of an eye.
“Armor the glass!” Protect the house and office from breach of its weakest link which even children can break. There is no better or more affordable solution. Armor Glass film also saves money by cutting solar heat and UV.
In the meantime, keep isolating so we can “flatten the curve on COVID” and the sooner we can get back to normal again
When storms hit these are 3 things to include in your Storm Emergency Kit.
No. 1. Hurricanes and tornadoes destroy building when wind-borne debris breaks the weakest link, the glass. Those winds look for a way out and the easy way out is to uplift the roof. That immediately allows internal damages from flying glass and water, mold, etc. So, “armor that glass” with our 8 mil Clear (cuts 21% of solar heat) or Solar tint (cuts 50% of solar heat) which is hurricane-explosion-large missile impact-rated. No need to “board up!” And, as you can see, it can fit any size glass of any shape. It even curves!
When Hurricane IKE and Harvey hit Houston, people lost power for days – some for two weeks. The same happened when Hurricane Michael hit Florida. When IKE cut my power, I had to plug it into my car charger and hope I didn’t run out of gas or run down my battery.
No. 2. So I found this solar charger for cell phones.
No. 3. But then I found something even better – a device on Amazon that is a radio, a cell phone charger, a flashlight, and a siren. It can charge by hand-crank, sun-power and it also has a place for a battery (even recharge-ables). This device is small enough to take on trips or camping so you don’t run out of phone power in event of an emergency. This will give people weather information and keep their phones working when there is no other power.
Get prepared! When the storm comes its too late to call or go shopping for emergency supplies.
