Former Terrorism Analyst Seeks Insurance Discount for Texans Who Install Security Window Film

While Paying for Itself

Recently a small child ran into a
glass wall shortly after Armor Glass security film was installed and broke the
glass. If not for the security-rated film, she would have been taken to an
emergency room for cuts, injuries and medical bills. Instead, the film shielded
her from broken glass and she was fine.
About the same time, a woman was
home alone when a burglar attempted to break through the glass in her back yard
shortly after Armor Glass security film was installed. He failed. In each case,
certified security film (sometimes called “safety film”) avoided loss and
What is that worth?
How many thousands of dollars in
insurance losses was avoided because of this technology that costs a fraction
of impact glass and shutters?
How much personal stress and
anxiety was avoided?
Michael Fjetland, President of Armor
Glass®, based in Houston (Sugar Land), TX, has requested the Texas legislature
give homeowners an insurance discount if they install security window film
equivalent to what Armor Glass provides -- because it cuts property losses and
personal injury by “armoring the glass.”
Glass is a 5,000 year old
technology -- the weakest link of every building. A home is often the biggest
asset most people own.Thin, fragile
glass leaves it vulnerable to destruction.
Hurricane Ike in 2008 caused over
$5 million of dollars in damages to the Chase Tower in Houston when it sucked
out windows from one side of the building, shutting it down for months of
rehab, mold issues, etc. Armor Glass film and frame attachment would have
prevented the huge financial loss from the property damage and operating
downtime. Imagine how many billions of dollars the installation of Armor Glass
would have saved. The problem is not just hurricanes and tornadoes, but a
constant one nationwide with broken glass caused by; vandals, burglars, hail,
mowers throwing rocks, hurricanes, tornadoes, errant golf balls, etc.
films like Armor Glass upgrades this ancient glass technology for the first

Straw” which is FREE for download at www.ArmorGlass.com
"Our security film has been
used to secure courthouses, police stations, community centers and houses on
Galveston Bay which took the brunt of Hurricane Ike. It has protected our
clients from home invasions. It’s rated for a bomb blast," said Armor
Glass® President and founder, Michael Fjetland, who was a terrorism analyst on
TV before and after 9/11 and served as a Fortune 500 international legal
before founding Armor Glass®.
“It would also cut millions from
construction costs of new buildings, especially those in coastal areas if it
were used as a substitute for impact glass or shutters which cost three to ten
times more per square foot.”
”I hope the Texas legislature
will see the wisdom of economically encouraging this technology by providing a
reasonable insurance discount that would cost the state nothing, yet it would
cut injuries to Texans, cut property losses and reduce harm to their children
or themselves. A house or building is typically a person’s largest asset.
Certified security films dramatically cut insurance company costs by protecting
the interior of the building from damage.
A “Win – Win – Win for Texas and Texans
Fjetland states, “A discount on
insurance premiums for use of safety/security films would make Texans safer
with the benefit of reducing cooling costs in the Texas’ brutal summer heat. It
is a win-win for everyone involved, with insurance losses significantly
reduced, lower utility costs and an increased level of security for the
consumer, and with the added benefit of removing over 99 percent of the UV.
Michael Fjetland’s bottom line: “I
believe the benefits of lower insurance losses should be shared with consumers.
Many owners need the insurance discount (and tax credits) as an incentive to
make the investment. Everyone would benefit under my proposal -- Texans and
insurance companies alike.
If you agree, please let your
legislature representatives know.”
