New Technology Ceramic Film Best Window Tinting Performance

Purple is such a beautiful color….. uh, unless it happens to be your window film!

High Impact Glass Solutions purple film removal

Yes, this actually was the color of film we recently removed from a customer’s home.


Unfortunately, many folks have film on their windows that was made with older technology, containing dyes or metal.  Over time, this outdated film gets bleached by the sun, turns to a nasty purple color and stops blocking the sun’s rays and heat altogether. 

In the tinting world, this is called ” failing film”.

Okay, purple yuk finally gone. To make our customers happy-happy, we began applying our ceramic heat rejection films. Made with the newest technology, these films are free of dyes and metal that would result in discoloration and come with a lifetime warranty. They provide remarkable heat rejection with reductions to  infrared light, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, annoying glare AND they look AWESOME!

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.

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!
