Dual Reflective Window Tinting Amazing on St. Petersburg Business

Yoga is a total mind-body workout with incredible results for improving overall health. The Body Electric Yoga Company in St. Petersburg offers a fantastic mix of programs. However, the building lacked energy efficiency and as you can plainly see, the windows were in desperate need of a “window film workout“!

The outside lacked the inviting appeal that this awesome studio deserved and the owners were bogged down under the “weight” of heavy electric bills.

Hot spots throughout the building caused by unyielding sun and heat penetrating through so many window panes caused immense discomfort and ghastly glare. These problems could easily disrupt business and we were not about to let that happen.

Unlike any structure we’ve been in, the building was totally unique inside with it’s original architecture still in tact. Very impressive….but also VERY challenging. Every one of the 128 panes of glass was at least 30 years old. Back then, when these windows were installed, glaze was applied with a trowel. By now, with age and weathering, the glaze and window edges had become utterly disgusting!

The degree of difficulty to tint these windows rose to the top of the scale. Ahem, actually it tipped the scale. Just look at the condition of the glass butted up to the panes!

Okay, because the project became an unusual window film installation,  we devised a special system. Each individual pane was numbered and would be filmed with Solar Gard’s Architectural TrueVue Window Film. The film for each pane was then plotted back at the shop and THEN applied at the job site. This way time was saved and we were able to give every glass the special attention each one needed.

TrueVue window film proved to be the perfect selection for the needs of Body Electric Yoga Company:

Key Benefits

  • Reflective exterior maximizes heat rejection resulting in excellent energy savings and payback time
  • Low interior reflectance maintains views to the outside, especially at night
  • Contains our darkest product which can reduce glare by up to 94%
  • UV blockers protect people and property from damaging UV rays
Once the windows were filmed, we  then re-caulked them, filling in any light gaps and definitely giving them badly needed conformity. The difference was totally AMAZING!

Truly unlike our every day window film project but both the owners and the staff were astonished with such excellent results. So for us it was worth every glass “pain”!

It took tremendous patience and skill to tint and caulk the old, dinosaur crusty windows with such perfection. But that’s what we do window tinting Tampa. Our installers are trained for “excellence”, no matter how difficult the task.
