We continue to be concerned about the FBI’s statistics that a high percentage of burglaries occur through windows and doors, and we feel that it’s a duty to build products that help protect and safeguard people.
Streetsboro, OH (PRWEB) December 20, 2014
Soft-Lite Windows, exclusive window manufacturing sponsor of the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) and McGruff the Crime Dog, is now offering its dealers a unique new program that will allow these companies to become actively involved as NCPC sponsors. Soft-Lite dealers can now sign a one-year agreement with the NCPC to become the exclusive window and door dealer sponsor for their area; Dealers who choose to join the sponsorship program will work with NCPC and Soft-Lite to educate consumers about home crime prevention strategies, particularly around window and door security.
Soft-Lite is known for placing a strong emphasis on designing and manufacturing durable high-quality products. The company voluntarily submits its products to independent, certified laboratories that test them according to forced entry standards established by the American Society for Testing and Materials. Soft-Lite's products consistently meet the highest levels for structural forced-entry testing to ensure maximum impact resistance.
Soft-Lite also offers a laminated glass option to provide homeowners with a highly effective means of deterring break-ins. Armor Glass Plus windows and doors feature three glass panes—two of which sandwich a tough polyvinyl butyral interlayer—to keep out intruders. In tests, these products withstand more than 30 blows from a baseball bat before a hole the size of a quarter appears. Armor Glass also offers other benefits, including improved sound control, safety and energy savings and solar protection.
“We are extremely pleased to partner with the National Crime Prevention Council to help promote the importance of window and door security in preventing crime―and we are excited to offer our dealers the same opportunity," said Tyson Schwartz, Soft-Lite Vice President of Sales &amp; Marketing. "We continue to be concerned about the FBI’s statistics that a high percentage of burglaries occur through windows and doors, and we feel that it’s a duty to build products that help protect and safeguard people.”
