Healthy Tropical Disturbance Roams the Caribbean
Our first Atlantic tropical wave of 2010 that could affect the Gulf of Mexico has formed.
Although it is too early to tell what it might do, it is in that "slot" that puts us on the potential receiving end if it does form into something like a Tropical Storm or Hurricane.
We are booked solid on Armor Glass security film installations for the next 2-3 weeks. If this does become a storm, all hell is going to break loose: A hurricane threat means a lot of people will be scrambling to find and nail plywood on their houses.
But not our customers. They already have "invisible shutters" installed -- our security film. And its saving them energy (i.e. money) and protecting from break-ins at the same time they wait on the inevitable storm...The 2004 "Project Safe Windows" study of the Florida hurricanes determined that a window breach from wind-borne debris leads to roof uplift. Internal wind pressure destabilizes a house during a storm. Our film prevents that breach (up to the large missile size--4.5 lbs) even if the window is broken.
This is just the beginning of hurricane season. It won't peak until mid-September - and doesn't end until November 30, so it's early.
Are you prepared?
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.
