Armor Glass Beats the HEAT while Defending Glass from Storms/Burglars

Armor Glass has made a major upgrade to our installation team, which now has over 20 years experience installing Security Window Film.

This summer we have been putting it on schools across Texas (who shall remain anonymous for security reasons) as well as houses and a famous restaurant chain.

Our Solar security film will also cut 50% of that SUPER Heat over 2/3’s of our nation is suffering under. That means your AC only has to cool HALF the heat that was coming through your windows before Armor Glass Solar Security Film was installed.

It is also screening out 99% of harmful UV that not only fades your furnishings but is the No. 1 cause of skin cancer, so you can enjoy the view from your windows without being fried by the sun.

Ask for a quote – cut the heat while “armoring your glass” from intrusion by hurricane-tornado force winds and humans with a brick. Founded by a 911 Terrorism Analyst in 2007…

Armor Glass Installed on America’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve – Sheltering in Place Today!

This month we put Armor Glass security film on a couple key buildings in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in Louisiana – 50 year old buildings 16 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. This is America’s emergency supply of oil. They are sitting ducks built back in the 1970’s.

Today I learned that they are “Sheltering in Place” due to the weather. So Armor Glass is protecting staff and buildings at one of America’s most valuable assets.

WOW. Didn’t see that coming!

We “armored their glass” — most of it ancient wire glass –and reinforced it by applying our 8 mil special polycarbonate certified security film on top of their window glass to strengthen it from breach from wind-borne debris, hurricane-force winds or an explosion.

I found out on the job that we had replaced 3M for the project — they trusted our technology more! This happens a lot. Not just in Texas but across America architects have been choosing Armor Glass film as the gold standard.

If you look at the specs for Pearland School district you can confirm they wanted 8 Mil Armor Glass film to protect their students, staff and buildings. But they aren’t alone. Over the year more and more school districts have specing “8 Mil Armor Glass” security film for their schools. Armor Glass is now installed on a number of schools now, both public and private — providing both shooter and storm protection while cutting harmful UV and cutting energy and solar heat.

This is why I love my job as founder of Armor Glass.

Our technology is protecting people across America now – from Brownsville/El Paso/Houston/Dallas/Ft Worth TX to Florida…it pays for itself in so many ways in this insecure world of high winds and people with guns or bricks hitting fragile glass, the beginning of the end of security for all those inside. Armor Glass film is also on buildings in DC – installed after 911.

Let us give you a quote today to protect you when events go insane like today in Louisiana, a facility that was inherently unsafe until Armor Glass film was installed.

As founder, I feel good knowing that for the first time they have real protection from violent weather (and human intrusion)–to get in I had to pass through security that made the airport stuff look like a cakewalk!

Check us out today and armor your weakest link.

Active Shooter – What you need to know..

Yesterday I attended a program on Active Shooter training –not for schools, but for COMPANIES.
 
He talked about how training is critical to prepare people HOW to respond. Because without it, people will “FREEZE UP” and fail to act that can result in more deaths.
For example, he cited a security guard who saw a employee point a gun at his head, then go into the building after he ran away. Instead of notifying anyone, he paced back and forth for 5 minutes, doing NOTHING. He had not been trained properly. His brain “froze” and he didn’t know what to do. The shock of a gun in his face had un-nerved him.
But here is the key thing: EVERYONE needs the training, not just security or the owner. When students were startled by a surprise mock attack by a gun-man, many sat in their desks, texting mom and dad!
 
Holy crap Batman, MOVE! JUMP! RUSH OUT. DO something! Don’t just sit there being a target while you call home. First RUN. Then HIDE. If you are facing an attacker with no escape route FIGHT! If he stops to reload, that’s your time to either fight or flee.
Installing hurricane film, Chase Bank, Long Island NY
Armor Glass film is being used on storefronts and on glass in schools to delay shooters from blowing out the glass and walking in one second later. Our product keeps them at the entrance longer, where police can see them and engage. But people need more than our protection for these horrible events.
They need to know WHAT TO DO when this happens – because it keeps happening. Simple “table top exercises” are meaningless because they don’t show people how to act under stress. Stress exposure training is a vital component, like the pilot who learns how to handle an airplane in a stall until the reaction is automatic.
Last comment. Don’t ever have a practice drill that no one knows about. That leads to disaster (not to mention possible heart attacks.) Professionals make sure everyone is aware of a drill LONG BEFORE it is scheduled.
 
Look for a consultant who knows the protocols to use.

Hurricane Seymour – CAT 4 CA Rainmaker. Spent 2 days with School Admin on Protecting Their Weakest Link from Breach by Shooters/While Saving Energy

Hurricane Seymour is now a CAT 4 in the Pacific. The good news is that it will turn towards California and the jet stream will carry RAIN into a DROUGHT area…Their FIRE SEASON is now almost year round…

Spent past two days meeting school administrators about securing their weakest link. Security doors are useless if someone can shoot out the glass.

Schools – Called Armor Glass after series of Break-ins

We recently installed our Armor Glass film on a private school in Sugar Land which had suffered two break-ins in one week!  The schools has a huge amount of glass, offering easy access with minimum effort.

 telfair

Now, the school students and staff are protected not just from break-ins, but they can “Shelter in place” if a tornado or hurricane hits. It would also delay a shooter from entering the building, unlike regular glass.

So, “armor your glass” with Armor Glass. Ask us for a Free Quote today!

Hurricane season starting EARLY in 2015? Low in the Atlantic…

Usually our Hurricane season doesn’t officially start until June 1 of every year and runs to November 30, and usually nothing ever happens until AUGUST — but not this year.  

We already have a mysterious LOW in the Atlantic that could prove to be our first storm of what is supposed to be a “slow” season. Maybe not!

Here is a photo of the current situation:


It does not look like a problem for the Gulf of Mexico at the moment but the fact that we are seeing low pressure in the Atlantic a month before the official beginning of hurricane season is a reason to be cautious and get prepared for a possible storm that no one expected. It’s been 7 years since Hurricane IKE hit Houston – so we can’t stay “lucky” indefinitely.

My gut says that when they say it will be a “slow” season is to expect the unexpected!
Hurricanes throw wind-borne debris through glass windows, allowing uplift on the roof that destroys a building. Armor Glass security film is designed to avoid a breach by large debris strikes (up to 4.5 lb), saving the interior from wind, rain, mold, flying glass and dangerous uplift.

Get more info from our Free EBook “Houses of Straw” at our website.

Recently we have been called by storefronts that have been broken into multiple times. We put security film on 8 stores for a well known regional restaurant chain and it has already prevented injuries when a motorcycle collided with a store and broke a window. It kept glass from spraying onto customers.

We have been taking care of homeowners with solar heat and security issues. We have put it on homes, churches, schools and private and public buildings.  Retired teachers have it, along with astronauts and engineers. Some of our clients are literally “out of this world” at the moment.

It costs nothing to get a quote.

TORNADO WARNING Ft Bend – HURRICANE AMANDA Cat 4 – IMPACTS

I just got an email giving a Tornado WARNING (meaning they have seen funnel clouds) in Ft. Bend. At the same time Hurricane AMANDA is coming out ahead of hurricane season and is either a CAT 3 or 4 – and its hurling torrents of rain and tornado activity across TEXAS NOW….

If you hear that “roar” sound, get into a ground floor room without windows if you don’t have a basement. Put little kids in the bathtub.

If the tornado gets close enough to hurl debris through your windows, there is a chance it will disintegrate the structure, leaving an inside room (hopefully) intact, if you are lucky.

Here is what happens when either a tornado or hurricane breach your window glass. It’s basically blowing your house apart. The only thing you can do other than have a basement is window protection for wind-borne debris impact to avoid the breach. it’s what we do 24/7.

Here is a illustrated photo that we are putting into a book we are about to publish on surviving these increasingly bigger storms…
