Robert Klein was the owner of safeguard back in 1990 when I was hired as the 2nd contractor back in the good ole days

It has been reported elsewhere in this forum that the SecureView clear board is lexan and the crossbeams are black hdpe plastic. Almost any plastic supply distributor can supply you with lexan and hdpe.

Safeguard prohibits its vendors from using any other product than SecureView and tracks purchase history that verifies vendors are purchasing their branded product from their chosen distributor. Also, vendors are prohibited from selling unused SecureView product to others.

Robert Klein family has ownership stakes in MFS Supply, Safeguard, and SecureView.

Not really a reach. Safeguard is KNOWN for that kind of behavior. Notice they own the company they require you to buy insurance from... They'll cheat you anyway they can.

clear boarding is NOT a money maker. I DO NOT do them when they put them in my queue. I don't run a charity. Material is way too expensive and PP companies want to pay you nothing to do them. Traditional boarding makes me money. Materials are cheap and usually left over materials from another job.

Same here. I'll re-glaze an opening before I'll clear board.

InvisiBoard™ | Polycarbonate Clear Window Boarding
https://www.invisiboard.com/
InvisiBoard™ is a patented, alternative clear window boarding system that provides a clear more attractive view from the street. InvisiBoard™ protects and secures vacant and abandoned properties without compromising the resale value of a home.

SecureView Windows : Changing the Face of Vacant and Abandoned Properties
SecureView is a patented, recycled, alternative window board-up / property preservation system that provides clear views and lets in natural light. SecureView windows guard, protect, and secure vacant and abandoned properties without exposing their vacancy to onlookers.

Installation is easy. You need to buy specific crossbar pieces tho' bc a lot of the companies we work with will not accept a 2 by 4 cross piece. And if I could advise one thing when cutting to fit...a brand new 40 tooth saw blade exclusively used for clear boarding. It is an expensive material, comparatively, and making a bad cut is costly. Good luck! MJ

PS I avoid doing them as much as possible. "Death by property preservation", to quote a local here, is slow starvation and working for nothin', and thats what clear boarding will get you.
