Any storm expert will tell you that a lot of the damage caused to property by storms is not structural in nature
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 30, 2008
In the wake of the devastation caused recently by Hurricane Ike ShatterGARD - the world leader in glass protection film - has announced that the window protection product StormGARD successfully withstood the recent brutal storms of the Gulf coast. While some of windows may have shattered, their deadly shards adhered to the StormGARD film maintaining safety and preventing property damage.
StormGARD is a thin, virtually impenetrable Mylar coating, which provides the highest level of protection available in the glass coating industry against storms including hurricanes, tornados, Northeasters, and any other kind of storm that has the potential to damage windows in residential and commercial settings. The high strength, optically clear or tinted polyester material makes the glass significantly stronger and virtually impenetrable to the most violent of storms. The product, currently available everywhere in the United States, Canada and many other countries, is applied to the interior side of a window, and prevents glass shattering during storms. Even if a window breaks, StormGARD will help hold the dangerous shards in place, preventing further damage from wind, rain and other factors.
"Any storm expert will tell you that a lot of the damage caused to property by storms is not structural in nature," says Jordan Frankel, founder and CEO of ShatterGARD, Inc. "Tens of million of dollars worth of damage occurs every year as the result of rain, debris, even animals getting into houses and businesses through shattered windows. In some heavily populated areas, a shattered window can even be an open invitation to looters. We have created this product specifically to provide a significant extra level of protection against this type of damage, from storms of all kinds. And in some cases StormGARD can eliminate the need to board up windows prior to a violent storm." Additionally StormGARD film has passed both the Small & Large Missile Impact Tests.
The film is virtually undetectable to the human eye and will not alter the appearance of the windows or glass surfaces. StormGARD is installed by certified technicians with a lifetime-limited warranty. Typically installation arrangements can be made within 14 days.
All arrangements - including scheduling - are made directly through ShatterGARD's headquarters in Atlanta, GA so that customers need not deal with multiple vendors.
For more than 15 years, ShatterGARD, Inc. has been providing the highest quality, most dependable window and glass protection film available on the market today. Their customers include the United States Military, The Federal Government, American Stock Exchange, Bank of America, the New York Office of Public Safety and countless homeowners who are looking to protect their property from damaging storms and other acts of Mother Nature.
"Look, storms can and do happen anywhere, and the damage they cause is sometimes unavoidable," says Frankel. "But the bottom line here is that home and business owners need to protect themselves as best they can and minimize the impact storms can have. We believe that StormGARD is an affordable, highly effective extra layer of protection for any home or business, Frankel further states the ShatterGARD firm will continue to offer this unique life saving glass protection film to the general public."
