Imagine Window Film on Your Boat

We were recently contacted by the owner of  “IMAGINE”. His new 450 Prestige looked awesome inside and out.

Let’s be honest, buying a new boat rivals the purchase of a new car by a long shot. So, amid the exhilaration, who thinks about “what could be wrong with my newest pride and joy”?

It didn’t take long before the owner of IMAGINE was imagining a much cooler interior and far less glare to contend with… was there something overlooked?

Indeed there was….

With out having window film installed on her glass, IMAGINE and all on board had zero protection from the sun’s adverse effects.

 

Known as marine window tinting specialists and highly recommended by yacht owners and esteemed marine brokers throughout Florida, we were expertly qualified to eliminate these problems…. and then some.

Because of it’s durability and performance in harsh salt-water environments, we chose to apply Panorama 35 Ceramic film on IMAGINE.  Once finished, the owner and his family never imagined how much more they would enjoy cruising in their new yacht!

As predicted, Panoramic 35 bought a wave of benefits:

  • greatly improved IMAGINE’S interior comfort by rejecting up to 58% of total solar energy blasting through her untreated glass
  • increased her air-conditioning efficiency with much appreciated less fuel consumption
  • low visible reflectivity provided occupants with clear views and reduced the annoying glare that was one of their chief complaints
  • eliminated the potential of interruption with IMAGINE’S navigational systems
  • decreased risk of skin cancer and would help to preserve IMAGINE’S beautiful interior from fading with 99% of UVA and UVB rays blocked

Heat-shrinking ceramic film on the exterior of a boat’s windshield is one of many techniques that we’ve mastered.

Imagine, Panoramic 35 Ceramic window film eliminated the heat discomfort, cut down glare for increased visibility, provided safety against harmful UV radiation, added fuel efficiency with less a/c running AND added aesthetic sophistication to an already fabulous looking boat.

Since we are in high demand for projects out of the local area, window tinting Tampa has extended installations throughout Florida and beyond.

Window Film Benefits 101

Vista room

You live in Florida. Your residence gets insanely hot. Glare is downright annoying. The air conditioner sounds like the train huffing “I think I can, I think I can”. Electric bills are through the roof. You move your couch and notice the expensive area carpet now has a discolored look. New neighbors from Seattle keep peering in (creepy).

Sound familiar? It sure does to most residents who are not informed about the MANY benefits of window tinting.  And the kicker is that in most cases, the cost of having window film installed pays for itself with reduced energy bills over time. But that’s just for starters.

I like illustrations and track records of proven results to make my point. I’ve posted a few comparison pictures that  show window film acting as a barrier on glass to reduce heat from the sun, cut out glare, and protect interior furnishings and occupants from ultraviolet ray damage.

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.

  • 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!

14462871_10211052885903860_4844194873163435142_n

 

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.

Notice less sun infiltration and glare coming through the filmed panel on the left. 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!
