Case Study- Vision Veritas
In 2021, Vision Veritas was broken into and lost $70,000 of high-end eyeglass/sunglass frames from brands like Chanel and Cartier. They also had equipment and furniture damaged.
This was despite having a high-end, in-person security monitoring system and steel-clad doors. The perpetrators broke through the glass to gain entry and were in and out in 3 to 4 minutes. In addition, post break-in then, Vision Veritas had to board up the broken-out window, giving the space an awful and uninviting appearance while they waited for the glass to be replaced.
The property owner Luigi Carleo researched options that included the ForeverSafe™ warranty from Ballistic Glass and Armor Solutions and options like roll down shutters. Carleo ruled out the shutters because they could be broken into and damaged, leaving the property disrupted. So he chose RetailSafe™ glass featuring ForeverSafe™
“We decided to make the investment in a product like ForeverSafe from Ballistic Glass and Armor Solutions because even with monitoring and alarms the key was to keep people out of our store and this was the product to do it and allow us not to have any disruptions in the operation,” Carleo said.
