Glass Block Tinting Outperforms Shades or Screens

Phoenix Arizona is known as the “hottest big city in the U.S.” . It consistently ranks number one for the most days a year when temperatures rise above 89 °F or 99 °F.

BUT TODAY ARIZONA HIT 119 DEGREES!

The sizzling heat in Phoenix halted planes from taking off. Business owners and scores of homes with glass block construction were also adversely effected.

The higher the heat is outside, the hotter it becomes inside as glass block offers little defense against the sun’s heat, glare, UV rays…. and zilch for energy efficiency,

Classy looking? Yes. 

Energy efficient? Not at all.

At one time, there were two options for glass block owners.

First option ~ Replace the glass blocks with traditional single pane or double pane glass and have solar film installed. However, ripping out blocks and window replacement is an insanely expensive option and you’d lose the beauty and ambiance that the glass blocks provided.

Second option ~ Custom order drapes, shades, screens, or suction-held solar shade panels.  Any one of these alternative choices are high-dollar items that do little for adding energy-efficiency, while doing a lot to cover up your beautiful glass blocks! 

We offer the best option!

A difference you can see and feel with filmed blocks!

An exterior application of highly resistant solar film custom cut to fit any size block adds amazing anti-heat, UV ray rejection, and “get rid of the glare” performance. You can keep your glass blocks after all and enjoy them wherever you live or work… in Arizona’s intense heat or during harsh cold winters in Maine.

Clearwater High Profile Office Building Chooses Us Again For Window Tinting

Our clients’ executive offices were targeted every afternoon with relentless sun, glare and UV rays. With security alert on high, there was also concern about vandals breaking into their 40,000 sq. ft. of glass.

This building we just completed is part of a total sum of 300,000 sq. ft. of glass that we’ve filmed for the same clients…. for the same reasons. As with their other buildings, we were contacted to install  impact safety and security window film to make their offices cooler, glare free, UV free, and safer. 

We train to deliver decisive results to meet the needs of our clients no matter what size or how difficult the project is!

 

Applying an 8mil layer of protection!

Thicker than solar film,  8 mil safety and security impact film is designed with special adhesives to strengthen its polyester layers, offering exceptional impact resistant capabilities along with solar reduction performance:

  • Deters unwanted intruders
  • Reduces the risk of injury from flying glass
  • Maximizes views to the outside
  • Improves indoor comfort with less heat and glare
  • Adds energy-efficiency to a building’s envelope
  • Protects people and property from damaging UV rays
  • Beautifies glass with a uniform appearance and adds aesthetic appeal

We give your protected windows extra muscle!
Our installers go through specialized training to give our clients  the highest degree of window safety. Following every window tinted, we anchor each glass and film to the window frame thereby maximizing the integrity of the film and its effectiveness. We traditionally use Dow Corning 995 Silicone Structural Adhesive. Often referred to as an “attachment system”, this application must be facilitated with expert precision for it to be successful.

We are “thee” attachment system specialists!

And that’s one of many reasons why our window film installations are trusted and lauded by large institutions comprised with hundreds of thousands of sq. ft. of glass.

Film “impacts” the energy footprint of buildings as well!

With advanced technology, our safety and security window films deliver more than glass safety. Windows also become barriers against solar heat to lower interior temperatures, reduce glare on monitor screens, and filter out nearly 100% of UV light that would otherwise cause fading to furnishings and damage to skin. With these added benefits, employees were able to work in a more comfortable atmosphere and HVAC systems were operating with far less strain.  All while enjoying the natural light and open views that enrich commercial spaces. Results?

Happier more productive employees and an impressive decrease to the bottom line of each building’s energy costs.

Our reputation for exemplary window film installations extends far beyond window tinting Tampa buildings. Nor are we limited to Florida only. Companies throughout the U.S. contact us for training and often to personally take over their high-profile installations.

Call for a free estimate and one of our experts will demonstrate why the benefits of window film are crystal clear.
