Neighbor Watches Burglar Trying to Break in Armor Glass door for 10 Minutes While Talking to Police

One of our customers had someone try to break in his (front) glass door armored with our film. This week. A neighbor saw it unfold and called the police as she watched. We just got these photos from John N who lives in Houston.


The burglar used the homeowners own ADT sign shaft as the break in tool! Normally it would have worked. One good whack and the glass goes flying.

She said he worked on getting in for 8-10 minutes, long enough for the police to come arrest him just as he finally breached it.


Yesterday we did an installation for another homeowner, John D, who lives in far west Houston. Thieves hit his house twice in 2 days, breaking a living room window in the back. He even wants us to put it on the glass on his business.

It pays to Armor your glass. If not for us, the burglars would have broken glass and been in and out in less than 3 minutes...contact us for a FREE quote today.

It's on homes for retired teachers, astronauts (some of our clients are currently out of this world), engineers, ordinary folk 
everywhere, Rice U, etc. 

It's on my place. I am not about to live in a 'house of straw' these days.

Armoring Your Building (Schools etc) from SHOOTERS - Armor Glass Ballistics Test

Yesterday, Armor Glass conducted ballistics test of a couple windows on which we installed Armor Glass security film. 

Compare the results to the photos below of what happened at Sandy Hook that had no armor glass protection on its windows. 

You will notice that the result is similar to the shooting in Chattanooga in which film like Armor Glass saved the people at the first attack site. 

Photos show that --despite numerous shots into the windows-- he was unable to penetrate the building to reach the people inside.  Normally a couple shots will blow out glass, leaving an empty frame - like at Sandy Hook.  So he gave up and went to a second place in his car where people were caught outside and killed.

We made it into a short video (2 1/2 minutes) to show you what happens.  Note that is does NOT stop the bullet but it does prevent the glass from blowing out after a couple of shots.

WHY is this important? Look at this photo from Sandy Hook elementary school. It shows that the glass was shot out next to the door - the shooter was inside in less than a second.
 The chilling view of the breached window from the INSIDE of the school...
 Now compare the Sandy Hook glass to Armor Glass after being shot numerous times:
 
Here is a close up...
 That may not impress you but it SAVED LIVES just a couple days ago by keeping an ISIS-inspired shooter from entering this recruiting center in Chattanooga. 

Here is the video - 2 1/2 minutes...

A Walk in the Park Fries Your Brain -- Screen out 99% Deadly UV

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). 

But it isn't the solar heat I was concerned about. It was the UV, because it is deadlier. Here is a link to confirm that UV is a major cause of skin cancer.  In fact, is is our No. 1 cause of cancer! Exposure of even 15 minutes can spell trouble. It's even worse for people who have already had skin cancer issues.

After my first lap, I put on a hat that I had in the car (something I bought in Belize or Mexico on a cruise stop.) 

When I drove home I was in a car with film on the glass that screens out 99% of UV. 

When I got home I have Armor Glass security film on the glass, screening out 99% of the UV that would be coming in and fading the flooring and grandma's antiques (well, I really don't have any antiques other than myself). 
                       A truck driver exposed to sun on his left side...

Bottom line: I am cutting my exposure to skin cancer with the same technology protecting me from break-ins, hurricanes, tornadoes and rioting neighbors (if the neighbors ever do riot.)  

This is yet another reason why we have the perfect solution to providing security by 'armoring the glass' you have, but also cutting solar heat and deadly UV at the same time.

Armor Glass and the Frustrated Burglar with ADT sign

I just got a call from one of my sales reps. He reports that a homeowner at a complex where we installed Armor Glass had witnessed an attempted break-in to a house next door.

Apparently when the police showed up ten minutes later the guy was still trying to get in.  His tool? An ADT sign he had gotten from someone's yard. LOL.

Another burglary foiled by Armor Glass security film. Call us for a free quote today....
