Question Clear Boarding (plastic board up) Material

Does anyone know where to purchase the materials to do the plastic window board ups? The bolts and nuts can be found at any hardware store but where can I find the plastic and the crossbar?

Please help

Plastic Board Up

Hi JDRM,

Are there any other places to purchase the material? I'm sure Secureview only wants to do the installation themselves. Is there somewhere else I can purchase the cross bar and glass?

Greetings, SecureView does not want to do any installations. We prefer to be the distributor of the material so contractors can do the installations directly.

They do not install, they sell the product, and will train you on how to install. Once I think.

I've never seen this product before but I like the idea, what is the cost vs the traditional boarding?

@bpotasie

Secureview will only sell you are large quantity of boards. So if you are just starting in P&P you either have to spend big money upfront and keep asking your company to send you board up jobs or buy one board from a place like invisiboard and make pennies per job. I think invisi board wants to sell in bulk more.

@madxtreme01
It is much more expensive but looks better in the neighborhood. The 8x4 plywood might cost you $30 or less and can easily be found while the plexi glass is not easily found at any home depot and will cost $100 or better. Of course companies pay more for plexiglass however.

Plexiglass is not accepted by companies that want clearboarding. You can get a Secureview copycat-similar product through Total Plastics, Inc. They have locations throughout the midwest/eastern part of the country. We usually just re-glaze windows rather than use clearboarding, never have a problem with our investors, but we are not in a high crime area with a lot of window breaches.

you can buy screwview, a company headquartered in cleveland, from MFS supply, a company headquartered in clevland, started by the brother of the founder of safgard, a company headquartered in cleveland,

if someone had trust issues, they might think that there is nothing special about screw view, other than safgard getting a cut when it is sold as screw view vs someone buying a clear sheet of thermoplastic, but that would be a reach to think that safgard would require a contractor to purchase products from a company they own
