One of the amusing things about heading up Armor Glass is the unique calls we get. So far this year we have been asked to supply Armor Glass security film for
(1) a Hollywood movie scene for Keanu Reeves
(2) A cannabis store on the west coast, and
(3) A company that makes armored cars and is trying to beef up the glass in Hummers.
Numbers 2 and 3 came in this week. Obviously, a store selling cannabis that has glass windows needs to keep someone from breaking the glass late at night and hauling off the inventory. Apparently they also have to keep the “merchandise” hidden from street view, so the silver tint version appealed to the owner.
The Hummer company is armoring cars. Apparently Hummers come with standard glass and bullet proof glass can’t be rolled up or down – so our product appealed to them because even with 8 mil (rate for Large Missile impact) still allows the windows to be rolled up and down. I know because i put it on a van i owned a few years ago. Most car tinters use a thin 2 mil film that is cut by computers. That won’t keep people from breaking in.
A couple weeks ago it was a set designer for an upcoming movie that wanted to try out Armor Glass on a room of mirrors for a scene. I am not volunteering to duel Keanu in a room of glass!
All this is in addition to providing a security film that has kept burglars from breaking in as well as hurricane-force winds from breaking windows and lifting off roofs. It has kept schools safe from shooters and retired teachers safe from tornadoes that act like hurricanes in tearing apart buildings.
Not to mention cutting solar heat, energy bills and deadly UV. Check it out and our free ebook – how people are living in “Houses of Straw“…and how to armor your weakest link.
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).
