Solar Gard Armorcoat protects supersize estate

The largest home in Pinellas County, Florida – owned by 7-foot-1 former NBA player and real estate mogul Matt Geiger – spans 28,500 square feet and rests upon 40 acres of land. All of the home’s expansive windows offer phenomenal views of Geiger’s spectacular landscape, 300,000-gallon water wonderland and his menagerie of exotic animals.

Yet, the same windows that offer these unprecedented views also posed a threat to his distinctive home accessories, beautiful high-end furnishings and exquisite hardwood and stone flooring. These valuable possessions were vulnerable to two distinct harms: violent weather and ultraviolet light. “When I learned that safety film provided storm protection, as well as ultraviolet radiation rejection, the decision was easy,” said Geiger. “When you live in Florida, any protection against hurricanes is a great investment.” What Geiger likes best is that no one can tell he’s had anything done to the windows.
Windows are your home’s most vulnerable area, once broken during a hurricane, high winds or violent storm you can experience severe property damage. Since Solar Gard Armorcoat safety window film helps hold broken glass in place upon storm debris impact, even enduring the heavy wind and rain that can last for hours, the product has become a consumer’s choice for hurricane window protection. Once your building’s envelope is unsecured, anyone or anything inside a home or business can fall victim to harsh weather and damage resulting from exposure. Solar Gard Armorcoat protects people and furnishings from the dangerous airborne shards that cause a majority of injury and damage during and after the storm. Solar Gard Armorcoat safety film is an optically clear, polyester glass coating, not obtrusive like plywood and other window coverings that block your view. You don’t have to be home to tape or board your windows in preparation for rough weather or other acts of nature. Solar Gard offers passive, 24/7 window safety and protection as it is professionally installed without drilling or special storage requirements. Solar Gard Armorcoat stays on the glass year after year with complete view intact.

The tough defense against bomb blasts.

With the ever-present threat of terrorism, commercial and government building safety has never been a higher priority. High-risk areas now include just about every major city of the world. Even buildings in the outlying areas are susceptible to major damage if an explosion should occur. The shock wave exerts enormous amounts of pressure, breaking unprotected glass and sending harmful shards into your environment at high velocities.
Over 14,000 earthquakes of sizable force have rocked the United States over the past 100 years. The twisting or “racking” of buildings during an earthquake creates tremendous stress and compression, imploding unprotected glass windows and doors – sending harmful shards of glass into your environment. Solar Gard offers seismic protection, reducing the possibility of injury by helping to hold dangerous shards in place.
Armorcoat safety film comes between an intruder and your business.

The Blane Group in Michigan had problems with intruders repeatedly breaking the tempered windows, entering the building under cover of night and stealing valuable computer equipment. After the 8 Mil film was installed, attempted thieves were unable to enter the building. The Blain Group is both impressed with the product’s glass retention performance and its ability to reduce HVAC load, impacting the company’s bottom line.
Even inside the house, you and your valuables are more exposed to sun damage than you probably realize. Ultraviolet light and solar heat coming through any window can cause fading and irreparable damage to the things you value most. Everything from your expensive artwork and furnishings, to hardwood floors, carpets and custom draperies are at risk – and even more important, so is your skin. Solar Gard films help by filtering visible light, rejecting solar heat and blocking over 99% of harmful UV light – significantly reducing your
Information theft is a modern-day threat to government security and high profile businesses. Everyday electronic equipment, such as wireless networks, PDAs, laptops, cellular phones and computer monitors, release electromagnetic fields that are intercepted and decoded by hi-tech criminals. Certain Armorcoat window films act as a barrier, with their flexible, transparent metal layer blocking the transmission
