Open Letter to Building Owners (Residential and Commercial)

Most Texas architects are unaware of a technology that has been widely used in Florida and Washington DC that will protect your new building from hurricane damage, solar heat and even burglars—and pay for itself in energy savings while adding UV protection. Some of our customers include Rice University, Chase Bank (NY) and Coca cola, which had both heat and security issues. 1-4 LEED credits may also be obtained by using it.

We encourage you to add it to your specifications since its unlikely the architects will bring it to your attention. Our technology would have prevented, for example, millions of damages to Houston’s Chase Tower during Hurricane IKE from windows that were sucked out during the storm (IKE blew out windows and caused damage all the way to Ohio).

It has stopped burglars from breaking into homes as little as five (5) days after we installed it. It is the same technology used on Washington DC federal buildings after 9/11 -- because it keeps explosions and large missiles from penetrating glass and avoiding damages to property and people.

While our customers use it primarily for hurricane and ‘smash and grab’ protection, it is also blast rated (GSA 3b/3a) and has passed the Large Missile test (ASTM 1886/1996 Large Missile Impact Level “C” (4.5lb missile) and Miami Dade Protocols PA 201 and 203.

It is also a green technology. The same film can cut solar heat 50-79% and harmful UV rays by 99%, thereby saving energy that can pay for itself over time in energy savings alone, not to mention avoiding internal damages from a window breach. The best part is that it costs a fraction of impact glass and shutters and works 24/7. It is a certified “Energy Star” product. It comes with a 12-year warranty.

The attached brochure and sample of our U.S. safety/security window film is sold and installed by our company nationwide. Our installation crew has decades of experience installing it.

We are also providing a specification sheet for your convenience and referral. I invite you to view the two-minute video on our website that shows how our technology works: Please call or email me if you would like to talk further about this technology. Thank you!

UK Riots - Breaking Glass without Armor Glass

UK businesses could use Armor Glass. Watch this video of rioters breaking through glass windows in London.

Had Armor Glass security film been installed, there would have been NO BREACH of the glass. We bond it to the frames with Dow 995, giving frame support to keep out rioters, burglars, bomb blasts, etc...

Save your a#$ with Armor Glass!

Protecting TV Studios and People on the Street Below from Celebrities

Chris Brown gave a very good demonstration why studios like Good Morning America (etc) -- and the public walking on the streets below-- need Armor Glass security film.

When Chris Brown became enraged by an interview at GMA and "blew off steam" by breaking his dressing room window, the broken glass shards fell on 43rd and Broadway, which would have injured (or worse) a passersby who was walking under the falling glass. in the wrong place at the wrong time. Broken windows produce nasty shards that, if falling, can embed in someone's head, neck, arms or eyes. It could have also cut Mr. Brown's artery and killed him.

Had our Armor Glass safety film with attachment been installed, the glass would have been contained in the film. It would have even kept the Chris Brown's and Charlie Sheens from hurting others or themselves since the 8 mil thick film is on the INSIDE - think of it as a shield between the room occupants and the broken glass...

We have put Armor Glass security film on both residential and commercial locations, from astronauts and retired teachers to medium size and Fortune 500 companies needing to "armor their glass" from burglars, hurricanes and bomb blasts.

It can also avoid expensive lawsuits when celebrities blow off steam by breaking windows with chairs, exposing studio and celebrity alike to legal liability for injuries caused by broken glass.

Both Clear and Tint cut 99% of UV and cut energy use. How? By cutting the solar heat intruding into a building. That means less heat that has to be air conditioned, saving energy costs.

How does it work? A 2 minute video on our website showing how it works, from a "large missile" 2.x4 hitting, but not penetrating it, to a 500 lb. explosion sixty yards (180 feet) away.

Then contact us for a free quote, no obligation. I'm expecting a call from GMA (or Chris Brown) any minute. Sure! LOL.

2011 Hurricane Season - vs. 2010 "Third Highest on Record"

"The famed storm prognosticators at Colorado State University have issued their first crystal-ball look at the upcoming hurricane season, and they're again calling for an above-active one."

"That forecast comes in the wake of their 2010 estimates, which correctly projected – although ultimately underestimated – a busy hurricane season."

"Researchers William Gray and Phil Klotzbach are guessing that we'll have 17 named storms next year, nine of which will strengthen into hurricanes.

The 50-year average is 9.6 named storms and six hurricanes.

The Colorado State scientists are also projecting a 73 percent chance of a major hurricane making landfall along the East Coast. The annual average is 52 percent."

Did you know that "the 2010 hurricane season there were a total of 19 named storms, tying 1887 and 1995 for third highest on record."

"Of those 19 storms, 12 strengthened into hurricanes. That ties 1969 for second highest on record, according to the National Hurricane Center."

So why didn't we see more hurricanes in the Gulf Coast? Because we got lucky.

"First, the jet stream that roasted and dried out much of the eastern U.S. acted as a natural barrier to keep many storms out at sea.

Then because so many of the storms formed in the eastern Atlantic close to Africa, they began curving northward before they even reached the Caribbean."

"Five of those became major hurricanes, reaching Category 3 or higher."

Don't expect that luck to hold this year. It's a good time to prepare before the rush begins.
