certified security window film protects glass 24/7 from breach by burglars and wind-borne debris upon impact, offering protection against intruders, tornadoes, hurricanes, explosions and earthquakes.
It is for both homes and commercial buildings. It costs a fraction of the alternatives - shutters and impact glass -- and does so much more.
Our security film comes in Clear or our Solar Security™ for energy savings and storm/blast protection. Even our Clear film cuts 99% of UV rays that cause furnishings to fade and skin cancer.
Our security films (1) cut up to 79% of solar heat penetrating a window (which cuts energy use) while (2) providing security for people and property from a breach of windows by burglars, vandals, golf balls, bombs, explosions or mother nature's wind-borne debris.
Armor Glass International, Inc. sells ONLY certified security film.Thin solar film will not protect you from
"A couple who rode out Hurricane IKE in a penthouse in one Houston high rise received a nasty surprise when the winds shredded their windows. When they tried to escape the flying glass, the 100+ mph winds were so strong that they could NOT open the door to get into the building's hallway! After IKE, the Chase Tower (photo upper right) had a desk hanging from a hole where a window had been. An occupant would have been sucked out. It sustained millions of dollars in internal damages that would not have occurred had our film been installed.
Our Armor Glass security film, with Dow 995 frame attachment, would have kept these windows from blowing out (or in during an explosion).
Home example: We installed Armor Glass™ on a high rise condo in Houston the day before IKE hit. The condo's windows survived but the windows in units below and above were blown out. It saved the owners antiques and family from wind, rain and flying glass. Armor Glass™ works, and costs a fraction of impact glass or shutters!
Commercial Examples: See Project Details on our "Recent Projects" page.
Below: "Old Tech" Plywood (below). Replace with High-Tech "Plastic" Security film that is applied to the inside of glass and works 24/7
"Project Safe Windows" studied the 2004 hurricanes that hit Florida. It found that houses with security window film survived storms that destroyed houses next door which had no such protection. Why? Wind-borne debris that breaks a window and leads to roof loss and structural failure.
Our products are "green" and save energy! They can yield 1-4 LEED energy saving credits

Check out on our Video Page the "Hammer Test" on a single pane window from Home Depot "armored" with Armor Glass security film (don't try this at home!) Think your windows would pass?
Our security film+Dow 995 would have kept these windows (below) from blowing out!
STUDIES HAVE SHOWN HURRICANE DAMAGE AS FAR AS 150 MILES INLAND! IKE knocked out power all the way from Houston to Ohio!

Brief History of Armor
The history armor begins with that of the human race. Humans throughout recorded history have used various types of materials and technology to protect themselves from injury in war and other dangerous situations.
Our Armor Glass™ is a security film that “armors” a building’s weakest link – its glass windows -- protecting people and property from injury or death from wind-borne debris or explosion.
Caution: SOLAR FILM IS NOT SECURITY FILM! Solar film blocks only the sun but not wind-borne debris that breaks a window, allowing internal wind pressure that pushes off the roof, leading to structural collapse in a storm.
A brick will penetrate both the window and the thin solar film. A brick will NOT penetrate through certified security film. And Security Film can also be Solar (tinted) film, and save enough energy to pay for itself.
Not all "Security" Film is secure. Has it passed the Large Missile hurricane or GSA Blast tests? Ours has. Untested products often fail when you need them the most.
Armor Glass International sells ONLY Security window film certified to protect you from flying storm debris, the sun's rays and the blast from an explosion.
Our security film would have protected the people sheltering in the bank by preventing the breach.
See our PRODUCTS page for detailed specifications.
Warranty: Our security film comes with a manufacturer's limited warranty of 12 years for commercial use and for residences for as long as you own your home.
