ShatterGARD® Introduces StormGARD® Safety Protection Films to Protect Against Hurricanes and Storm Damage

ShatterGARD, a leading glass security company based in Atlanta, Georgia, is proud to introduce StormGARD® Window Protection Films, the ultimate invisible shield against the destructive force of hurricanes. Say goodbye to the hassle of installing hurricane shutters. This remarkable protective film is applied once and remains clear forever. Trusted by the FBI, Naval Centers, Zales Jewelers, and homeowners worldwide, experience the peace of mind StormGARD® offers. 

The Gulf Coast is renowned for its breathtaking beauty. The combination of the Gulf of Mexico, pleasant weather, and favorable climate make it an ideal place to call home. However, alongside its beauty, there lies a challenge. Storm damage caused by hurricanes, tornadoes, and violent storms, coupled with the relentless heat, can wreak havoc on residential structures. Moreover, the same sunlight that tans or burns you can also fade furnishings and artwork exposed to its rays.

Thankfully, there is now a simple and cost-effective solution to these problems: protective StormGARD® window films. StormGARD® is a transparent film that is applied to existing windows. When correctly installed, the film remains “optically clear” and preserves the original appearance of the glass. It is nearly impossible to distinguish between filmed and unfilmed glass, eliminating the need for extensive remodeling or glass replacement.

With StormGARD® lining windows, the strength of the glass is significantly enhanced. While the glass may still break under significant force, the film helps hold all the broken fragments together. This serves two crucial purposes: first, it prevents the creation of openings from the shattered glass, reducing water damage. Secondly, it significantly reduces collateral damage by minimizing injuries caused by flying glass and preventing other debris from penetrating through the window. Additionally, properly filmed windows decrease the risk of fire damage by reducing the likelihood of glass shattering due to intense heat and supplying oxygen to a fire.

Apart from its effectiveness in storm damage control, StormGARD® glass protection films offer several other benefits. The film can be clear or tinted, with tinting being particularly advantageous for reducing heat and glare. All StormGARD® window films provide an impressive 98% reduction in ultraviolet rays, preserving the vibrant colors of carpets, art, and furnishings by minimizing fading.

Another advantage of StormGARD® glass protection film is its ability to protect against intentional damage. Glass is often the weakest point in any structure, and burglars frequently target windows due to their vulnerability. Residential burglaries commonly involve reaching through or climbing through broken glass. While buildings have robust walls and sophisticated locking systems that are hard to breach, unprotected windows can be easily shattered with a simple tool like a hammer or rock. 

StormGARD® films are also utilized to safeguard commercial and retail structures, eliminating the need for additional window protection. 

With StormGARD® window protection films, you receive protection from storm damage, UV rays, and burglary attempts all in one package, backed by a lifetime warranty. This makes StormGARD® a crystal-clear choice for safeguarding coastal properties.
