Today's Hurricane Protection Tip focuses on Security and Solar Films.
(A.k.a. Impact glass, Impact Resistant or Live Impact Windows)
Why Go With Security Film?
With hurricane season just around the corner, one issue that comes to every homeowner's mind is the possibility of damage caused by intense winds, rain and debris. Everything from lumber to toys can pose a serious threat in the event of a natural disaster, hitting windows and causing breakage on impact. Shattered glass can cause damage, or worse, serious bodily harm.
Fortunately, one thing you can do to prevent such a tragic outcome is have Security Film professionally installed. Security Film is bonded by a special adhesive, becoming a permanent part of the window, increasing the overall strength of the glass and greatly reduces the chance that glass pieces will scatter in the event of breakage. Upon impact, while glass may break, it can remain held together, preventing a window from caving in, as seen in video below.
Fact: As of 2011, The FBI estimates that over 2,22,196 burglaries occur each year in the United states and result in an average of over $2,000 worth of property stolen. Residential burglaries occur for 73% of all robberies.
This film can prevent break-ins and secure your home from intruders, giving you and your family peace of mind. For extreme security and optimal storm protection, optional frame attachment hardware or silicone can be added.
