A portion of that release focused on hurricane related protection needs and regulations.
Now as Southwestern and Central Florida begin tallying Billions of dollars in property damage from Hurricane Charley, advocates for stiffer building regulations see a Golden Opportunity. The powerful winds razed and badly damaged thousands of homes and other buildings, forcing the state of Florida to conduct a re-evaluation just two years after it enacted regulations that many considered sufficient. These new code requirements are being implemented to protect people, their property and to reduce flying debris in violent weather related storms.
The consequences are now on vivid display in coastal towns like Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, where high winds left countless examples of glass damage.
Miami-Dade and Broward Counties now require hurricane shutters or impact resistant windows on every residential building. Absolute Glass Protection is now preparing their unique line of safety and/or security film laminates for immediate introduction into the state of Florida and other Atlantic and Gulf Coast states. The Company will make it a priority to obtain new dealers to sell, distribute and install Absolute Glass Protection products, including pre-laminated glass offered through its Automated Dry Lamination Processing Equipment Division.
