Hospital Window Breaks During IKE, etc.
A hospital has to turn 24/7 so breaking windows during a storm is not a good thing. Here is an article about Houston's St. Luke's Hospital, which had windows blow out during Hurricane IKE.
This is another example how our hurricane-resistant window film would have avoided this threat to staff and patients - and eliminated the damage from water intrusion after the breach.
St. Luke's had windows blow out on its higher floors (the higher up you get, the stronger the winds). This also means that water could flow down, floor after floor, causing further damage.
Armor Glass sells hurricane/tornado explosion-rated security window film. The same film was installed on federal buildings in Washington DC after 9/11. CEO Michael Fjetland is the founder and a former terrorism analyst who established Armor Glass to protect people and their property from breach of their weakest link.
