Create A Plan For 2010 Hurricane Season|Safety and Security Window Film | Sarasota Bradenton Venice Florida

Hurricane window tintng film The 2010 “Hurricane Season” is upon us; and by all accounts it could be a busy one. Business owner or homeowner – do you have a plan in place if a storm should approach, or strike our area? If you have storm panels or plywood; do you know where the mounting hardware is? Do you have to buy more of anything to complete the job of protecting your home or storefront? Why wait until the last minute? Supplies could be unavailable, it could take hours to deal with the other procrastinators who are futilely searching for batteries or other products – make a plan and act on it now!

Protect Your Business With Armorcoat™ Safety and Security Window Film

One way to protect your storefront, or office windows is with a quality Safety Window Film product such as SolarGard® “Armorcoat™”. Highly resistant to impact, with a proven record of effective glass fragment retention, 8mil thick Armorcoat; further secured by Dow Corning “wet glaze” edge attachments, can offer an elevated level of protection that may be far more practical than trying to store, assemble and install storm panels or plywood.  Armorcoat holds glass in place when struck; keeping the wind and rain outside – away from office equipment, furnishings and important files – quite possibly allowing your business to be “up and running” in very short order after the storm.

Your Home May Benefit From Armorcoat™ As Well

Part-time residents may find Armorcoat to be a practical alternative to trying to get a neighbor to install their storm panels; or they may use safety film as a “redundant back up system” along with shutters.  More elderly clients may not be physically able to install panels or plywood, and they may not be able to afford more expensive shutters. All homeowners should be reminded; however, that window film may not be accepted by their insurance company as a storm mitigation device, where the carrier requires actual shutters, or Miami-Dade compliant products. Always check with your insurance company before installing window film in lieu of shutters. See our manufacturer’s protection statement for full details.

Excellent information and planning materials are available from the Florida Division of Emergency Management for those interested in making a complete plan for home or office.

Hurricane Season Is Here | Be Prepared!

Protect Your Building Envelope!!

Today is the official start of the 2010 Hurricane Season, and our thoughts, hopefully, turn to implementing a protection plan for our homes, families, pets, etc. Hurricanes are not a “minor inconvenience;” their damage can be devasting, and long-lasting. If you are a business owner, you could lose more than just your home, you could lose your entire source of income! So it makes sense to protect your home or office windows from the destruction caused by windborne debris.

Armorcoat® Safety and Security Window Film Can Help

Safety and Security Window Film is a well respected product that may add a level of protection against debris that would otherwise shatter glass and allow the wind and rain to enter your home or office – not only causing great damage, but possibly lifting the roof off the structure – completely exposing your prized possessions to ruin. Keeping glass in the window openings is vitally important to protecting your home or place of business if it is to remain intact. After the storm, safety film may provide a deterrent against burglary or looting.


Safety and Security film can give you a vastly improved level of protection when properly installed.  However! It must be remembered that, once installed; safety film is a component of your overall glazing system, and as such relies on the structural integrity of that glazing system to give you the level of protection that you may be hoping for. Safety film is a legitimate storm protective product; however, installing it on glazing that is not of adequate quality or structural strength will result in less than adequate protection.

If you are interested in Armorcoat Safety and Security Window Film as a protective product for your home or office, we would encourage you to call us for a professional and knowledgeable consultation. Thirty-seven years in the film industry has endowed us with a level of competence not always found in other window film dealers. Call today.
