No Fall in Tampa as Heat Continues

Many parts of the country are experiencing cooler days.


In much of Florida autumn with falling leaves is a memory for some and just a pretty picture for others. Either way, the only thing falling for us is sweat!

But that’s a small price to pay to live in paradise, right? Well, yes ….. and no. Our electric bills can hardly be considered small! Seems like the a/c system never shuts off! 

Explains why our installers are busy as ever window tinting Tampa with our solar control window films.


Look at the difference window tinting makes! Partially filmed glass shows that no matter what the view, it can be fully enjoyed without glare, UV rays, and heat streaming through the windows.  And how awesome not to hear the a/c humming all day.

Look at the difference the window tinting makes!

Windows without solar control film allow unfiltered sunlight in that causes discomforting hot spots, annoying glare on monitors, dangerous UV rays that are known to fade furniture and even worse, damage our skin!

Don’t fall for the sun’s heat and harmful rays where you reside. With our solar control film on your windows, sun-related problems will fall away:

  • Improve comfort and maintain cool temperature consistency from one room to another.
  • Give your HVAC a rest & reduce cooling costs by up to 30%.
  • Reduce glare & improve computer and television viewing.
  • Block up to 99% of UV rays to minimize fading of interior furnishings.
  • Reduce the risk of skin cancer and premature aging from UV radiation.


Part of the beauty of autumn is the different colors that the leaves will turn. The beauty of our solar reducing films is the performance you can expect…..and by the way, they come in different tint colors to choose from as well.

Guess you can enjoy a bit of fall in Florida after all!

Free demonstrations always – Great results for a lifetime.

Clearwater Company Chooses Madico Security Film

Aerosonic Corporation is a prominent aircraft supply company in Clearwater. With massive windows, protecting their sophisticated inventory became an eminent concern.

High Impact Glass Solutions applies Madico Security Film in Clearwater, Florida



As an industry leader, Aerosonic’s job is to focus on research and developing the next generation of high technology aircraft products for global markets.

 Our job was to help protect Aerosonic’s high-tech, irreplaceble inventory  and reduce risk of injury to employees in case of glass breakage.


Two very important goals were met with one very remarkable window film: Madico’s Safety & Security Window Film. With their wide range of tints, styles and grades, all designed to meet  Aeronsonic’s needs, we were able to address both objectives and give their building an aesthetic boost as well.



With Madico’s film on the windows, we began to notice  smiles with audible “ooh’s and aah’s”. Truly awesome, the first step towards securing Aeronsonic with their requested protection was successful. Next, we added more safety with a “Wet Glaze Anchoring Application”.  This procedure is one that we’ve specialized  in window tinting Tampa since 2003. The process strengthens the bond between the glass with the frame to prevent sharp fragments from entering rooms in the event of glass breakage. Specialized in the technique and using a very high-performing sealant, our mission was complete. Aerosonic Corporation was fully protected.



Whether your need is to protect inventory, property, or your family, our safety and security film installations along with our specialized anchoring systems are your best defense.

Estimates and window film demonstrations are free. And by strengthening your windows, you have nothing to lose…literally!

Wikipedia defines glare as “difficulty seeing in the presence of bright light such as reflected sunlight….”


We can all agree that wearing sunglasses while looking at TVs and monitors will work to some degree, but really? And besides, glare blazing through windows is only one prong of a much larger problem.  The sun’s discomfort can become disabling and crunch your budget for monthly electric bills.
