Window Tinting Cuts Down a Yacht of Heat

No one is more subjected to discomfort and dangers from the sun than boat owners.

High Impact Glass Solutions install window film to reduce heat and glare

Intense glare, extreme  interior heat, and the dangers from UV rays  adversely effect fun days on the water.

But we put the “fun” back into boating!

It takes three elements to bring long lasting, successful solutions to eliminate these problems for yacht owners:

  • installation skills gained from years of hands-on experience
  • being a dealer that offers the best performing marine films
  • a personal drive for perfection no matter what it takes to overcome each boat’s challenges.

One of our recent marine projects was for a yacht that first needed film removal.  Having the wrong film installed that can not withstand a harsh water environment over time is a common mistake many boaters make. Such was the case here.

After removing the faded, purplish looking film, we proceeded to apply Solar Gard’s Panorama Ceramic 35.

With failing film removed, the new Panorama Ceramic 35 delighted the owner with results he hoped for and more:

  • greatly improved interior comfort by rejecting up to 58% of total solar energy blasting through untreated glass
  • increased air-conditioning efficiency with less fuel consumption
  • low visible reflectivity provided clear views to the outside and reduction of glare causing eye strain
  • no more interruption with operating navigational systems
  • decreased risk of skin cancer and helped to stop  the fading of beautiful interiors with 99% of the UVA and UVB rays blocked

Exceptional durability makes Panorama Ceramic film the optimal choice for use in coastal environments. Every boater can enjoy cruising the waterways with comfort, safety, protection….and fun!

Heat and Glare Blocked with Solar Gard Ceramic Window Film

With it’s Mediterranean appeal, this grandiose home was brimming with a very cool look.

But with so many oversized windows, the rear of the home was brimming with nothing but HEAT!



It was truly a target for the sun’s damaging rays. The immense build up of heat was sadly turning the entire back of the house into a sauna! And the glare bouncing off TVs and monitors was not helping matters.

To eliminate these problems we recommended installing  Solar Gard’s CX Series window film on all rear glass windows and sliders. Constructed with ceramic based technology, free of dye or metal, these films would provide a neutral, non-reflective view while keeping out the heat and glare that was so uncomfortable and interruptive.

Panorama CX 35 proved to be the ideal window film!










Notice less sun infiltration and glare coming through the filmed panel on the left. Living up to its reputation, Solar Gard Panorama CX35 reflected significant solar energy that resulted in considerably less heat and glare transmission. Even during sun peak hours on the hottest days, the family was able to fully enjoy ALL of their home.

If you enjoy the heat in a sauna, make an appointment by calling one!

If your home feels like a sauna, cool off by calling us!

Solar Window Film Best Answer For Residential Sun Problems

The owners of this rustic, beautifully designed home were overwhelmed with interior heat,  sun glare, energy costs creeping up, and wood floors that were starting to fade.

High Impact Glass Solutions restores comfort and safety to home with window tinting installation g


We addressed each problem so they fully understood why and how our window film would make a huge difference.

Problem #1 – Reduce Heat!
Though they loved natural sunlight filling their home, untreated windows were also allowing heat to enter. Shutters covering the most problematic windows were only blocking their views, not the heat. For this reason, they felt discomforting hot spots and uneven temperatures throughout the residence.
Problem #2 –  Glare Go Away!
Transmitted through untreated glass, glare from sun is problematic all year round. The visibility in this home was adversely effected, making it hard for the family to watch TV and look at computer screens. Here again, using closed shutters was an inferior solution as they blocked views and natural light. With film applied, the shutters could be left open while glare would be reduced by 95%.
Problem #3 – Lower Energy Costs!
According to the EPA’s calculations, up to half of a home’s utility bills can be wasted by heat gain through untreated windows. By simply having us install our solar-reduction film, the amount of heat streaming through their untreated glass would be greatly reduced. This would give the a/c systems an appreciated rest and thereby reduce their cooling bills.
Problem #4 – Stop Further Fading!
Much of their interior floors were showing common results from sun exposure. Simply by allowing daylight to pass through untreated windows, the suns’ rays were damaging their gorgeous wood plank floors. Blocking up to 99.9% of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays, our window film would help protect their beautiful furnishings from further damage.

McDonalds Adds Window Tinting as New Feature


We were called by a McDonalds located in Pinellas Park that wanted to add another feature to please their customers and also a special perk for the owner.

No, not a foot high “Bigger Mac” and no, not Filet Mignon McNuggets. In fact, you won’t find it on the menu. But if you happen to patronize this McDonald’s you’ll surely notice the addition.

The owner wanted to give his patrons a more comfortable dining experience, a fresh attractive look to the building, and for him? Less hypertension when opening his monthly electric bills!

McDonalds is the #1 fast food restaurant in the world… and High Impact Glass Solutions is #1 for window tinting Tampa.

It was a perfect match!

And so was Panorama Slate 30, one of Solar Gard’s remarkable films in their wide range of solar protection solutions.

  • Panorama also improves  occupant comfort and increases energy efficiency.

 McDonalds got exactly what the chef ordered!

By the time we were done installing Panorama Slate 30 on the glass, the only things cooking were the burgers. Inside McDonalds it felt much cooler without any annoying glare from the sun and without the air conditioners running as much, electric bills and blood pressure were sure to come down.

Making Tails Wag With Solar Protection Window Film At Tampa Animal Hospital

We enjoy helping our clients cool off and work in a more comfortable environment – especially when they dedicate their lives to the care of our beloved pets!


Harbourside Animal Hospital in Tampa was busily attending to their  animals. But the building had many windows allowing heat to blast through and cause everyone to pant! They looked to our window tinting expertise and highly regarded reputation for a solution.

Comparing filmed glass to unfilmed glass in these pictures illustrates how window tinting transforms standard glass into high performance windows.

Though natural light added life to their facility, it also caused unwanted heat and hot spots which adversely effected everyone’s comfort. Installing film on their glass panels provided them with greater temperature stability and comfort.

With our solar film’s ability to block up to 79% of the solar energy streaming through their windows, Harbourside Animal Hospital was cooling off big time!

Different buildings require certain films and every client has their own personal preference as to how they wish their glass to look. To accommodate these needs, our selection of films range from optically clear and vary in degrees of tint and reflectivity.

Our solar protection films also cut down on cooling costs by up to 30%. Hospitalized pets were not so impressed but lower electric bills were a welcome benefit for the owner!


Making the right decisions about energy-efficiency improvements for your facility is challenging. Understanding  your options is critical, whether you need less heat or you are hoping to lower your energy costs. Or both.
