Tampa Bay Businesses Safer with Safety and Security Window Film


We Hear it on the Radio. We See it on the News. We even Watch it on YouTube.


         Smash_and_Grab can be deterred with safety and security film  

It takes a smash and grabber less than three minutes to break through glass. THREE MINUTES to take YOUR valuables…YOUR inventory… invade YOUR store that you’ve put YOUR hard work and investment into. And in a flash they’re out.  That’s right, by the time law enforcement arrives, the burglars are long gone.

Be rest assured that there’s a solution. And no, you don’t need to hire a team of armed ex-Navy Seals to keep vigil around your property 24/7. 

High Impact Glass Solutions has the very same safety and security film that we are contracted to apply on governmental buildings and schools nation-wide. Keeps the Tampa commercial sector safe all year long.

High Impact Glass Solutions is honored to protect those who protect us!

Unlike other films on the market, we apply films that pass large missile impact tests. Our films also meet GSA and DoD Blast standards to fortify your glass against brute force. With our additional process known as a “wet seal anchoring system”,  a structural bond attaches the film, the glass, and the frame together. Total prevention is achieved that keeps glass from popping out of the frame.

Once deemed the most vulnerable entry for break-ins, your glass is now transformed into an invisible barrier that will deter, delay, and often times deny illegal entry altogether. At the very least, your filmed windows and glass doors ensure extra time for law enforcement to respond and apprehend the burglars.

Sun and Heat Really Hate Glass Block Tinting


Hot Bathroom before Glass Block is Tinted


Another day, another phone call….another frustrated homeowner. “We love our glass block but it makes areas of our home unbearably HOT!”

Certainly not an uncommon problem that we hear at Glass Block Tinting. We agree that the beauty of architectural glass is undeniable but unfortunately, it allows the transmission of heat, sun glare, and UV rays to filter through….causing so much discomfort that often times occupants refrain from entering rooms altogether.



This bathroom in a L.A. residence with 386 glass blocks was a bulls eye target for excessive heat and glare. Desperate for relief, the owner was looking for a solution without having to cover the blocks with drapes, shades, or blinds.

Our exterior Glass Block Tinting application transformed all 386 blocks into protective shields from harmful UV rays and blocked up to 83% of the solar heat that was blasting through. Without compromising the beauty of the glass blocks or impeding the ambiance of natural light,  we resolved the heat problem and delivered on our promise. The bathroom was remarkably cooler and safer….and our client couldn’t be more pleased!

By clicking on this picture you can see how the blocks with our exterior film application reflected the sun’s destructive rays off the glass. The blocks not yet filmed were still vulnerable to the original problems. Block by block, as the installation moved forward, the temperature and glare in the bathroom was reduced.



After completion of the installation, the tinting crew left with a feeling of great accomplishment. And the family was finally able to fully enjoy their master bathroom. In fact, the tinting added a unique aesthetic distinction to this already spectacular home.

The bay window on the left was untreated and the intensity of heat and eye-squinting glare was making it difficult, if not impossible for this room to be occupied during peak sun times of the day. We applied Huper Optik Sech on two of the three panels in this beautiful glass area and already the difference could be seen….and felt.

Tampa and Orlando Gain Edge Over Heat And Glare


Tampa and Orlando’s Commercial Sector Become Greener And Save Money

According to the US Department of Energy 75% of all existing glass is inefficient. The DOE estimates that the amount of energy lost annually through windows is a whopping $35 billion! The average household spends $1500 – $2500 every year on energy bills and claims that 45 percent of this amount is for heating and cooling. Then how much more would commercial buildings be effected by energy loss through their immense tapestry of glass!

Then how much more would commercial buildings be effected by energy loss through their immense tapestry of glass! 

throwing money out the window Okay, I made my point. Without the proper solution, LOTS of money is being literally thrown out of windows every day of the year! There is an obvious need for glass to be more energy efficient!  







  Huper banner 2 There is no other film in the window film industry that supports corporate green and energy efficiency goals.

Until Huper Optik low-e window film revolutionized the industry, commercial buildings used reflective films to reduce solar heat gain through windows. With less natural or visible light entering the buildings there was a need for more artificial lighting inside. Turning on switches to lighten large buildings was hardly the answer to lowering electric costs. Huper Optik’s advanced technology resolves this problem by preserving the connection between the work space inside and nature flowing from outside with its superb window film:

  • Significant Total Solar Energy Rejected (TSER) lowers a/c consumption
  • Huge reduction in solar gain through glass
  • High Ultra Violet rejection exceeding 99% offers fade protection for fixtures and furnishings
  • Protects occupants from the sun’s harmful Infra-Red radiation
  • Up to 96% Infra-Red heat reduction enhances interior comfort with less glare
