Glass is the Achilles Heel of Your Building

By February 26, 2017Blog

For years, business owners, campus police, and security officials have had very few options for protecting their property against a determined bad guy because everyone knows that if you really want to get inside a building, you can just smash a window or glass door and you’re in.

Protecting the glass with bars or scissor gates dramatically alters the appearance of the building in a way that negatively impacts not only your property, but the neighborhood as a whole, and these solutions often only work after hours as they are disabled or pushed aside during the day. The windows then become vulnerable to an attacker.

The solution? Riot Glass. We have solutions in many protection levels and price ranges.

Imagine you own this retail store and receive that dreaded phone call from the police or alarm company that your store has been looted.

Now, imagine the voice on the other end of the line informing you that although your store was vandalized, the rioters or burglars were unable to gain entry, no merchandise was stolen, and your store interior is intact. It is still a dramatic event to endure, but the outcome is significantly less traumatizing for you, your employees, and your patrons. It is also vastly less expensive when you consider lost revenue, potentially lost customers and/or employees, and the insurance deductibles.

Whether you are in charge of protecting a retail store (or chain), a school, government facility, or office building, think of Riot Glass as insurance that prevents the negative financial and psychological impacts. It is the first line of defense against a burglary, riot, or other attacks.
