I grew up in an old home with a large, solid oak, front door adorned with beautiful etched glass and my mother always stressed the importance of locking that door even when we were home. I would hear that lock click and we immediately felt safe. The truth is, we were no more safe or secure with the door locked since the glass could easily be broken for an intruder to reach the deadbolt. Just like today you are not any more safe or secure with a home security system. Yes, it may be a deterrent for some vandals and burglars but not all. In today’s environment, with as many active shooter and home invasion incidents as we are experiencing, paired with longer response times we need to make sure our windows and doors are actually secure.
One of the best, most cost effective ways to do this is with high quality window security film. These products increase the time it takes to break through the glass, making it harder to unlock the door or gain entry through a window.
StrongGlass Systems is a national leader in this field. We have over 100 years of installer experience, and have installed our products on over 800 schools in nearly every state. We have done work for the US Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. We have also done work for the FBI, U.S. Marshals, Department of Veteran Affairs, and many other State and Federal government buildings. We have done work for hundreds of corporations, religious organizations, and contractors. We use only the highest quality products, independently tested by Underwriters’ Laboratories, and the General Services Administration (GSA).
As a father and husband in today’s world, I rest easier knowing my family is secure in our home and not just comforted by some false sense of safety. When looking to secure your building or residence, you need to decide if you just want to feel secure, or if you actually want to secure your property and the people most important to you. Because the difference between seconds and minutes can mean life or death.
