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.

Coolest Tampa – Orlando Hotel Resorts Choose Window Tinting Solution

Checking in to a Five Star Resort should be an enjoyable experience. Due to discomforting hot spots, guests are often forced to avoid certain areas.

Pittsburgh Corning Is No Longer Making Glass Blocks?

Pittsburgh Corning has been the leading global glass block manufacturer for the past 79 years.  Unable to recover from the housing market crash in 2008 and feeling pressure from a growing insurgence of foreign imports, Pittsburgh Corning will no longer be making glass blocks.

However, the demand for glass block from consumers and architectures is on the rise!

What attributes to this popular demand?

The WOW factor!

It’s obvious to see that glass block adds beauty and luster that plain, traditional glass can’t. Whether used in a residence or an office building, glass block can change the ordinary to looking quite extraordinary!

Then why do so many home owners, property managers, and business owners call Glass Block Tinting!

Glass block technology allows transmission of sun light to enter rooms but it does so without the ability to decrease the sun’s heat, glare, and ultraviolet penetration.  Areas can become so uncomfortably hot and the glare can become so disruptive that until now,  options for relief were limited and not at all “glass block friendly”!

  • Thermal screens
  • Solar shades
  • Custom window treatments

We’ve even seen “tin foil” taped to blocks!

Except for the tin foil option, the other mentioned alternatives are  quite expensive.  And honestly? Your rooms would be dark and the awesome glass blocks that you love so much would be hidden.

Glass Block Tinting offers the most affordable, most effective solution without minimizing the beauty of your glass blocks!

 

With this glass block window in multiple areas of their home, the discomfort became intense. They picked out film with the highest degree of heat  and glare resistance.

 

 

Same window from an exterior view illustrates how the film compliments the glass blocks. With our specialty tint applied on all of their blocked areas, our customers were  totally overjoyed with  the comfort inside without having to cover up their windows.

 

The Perfect Solution!

Our exterior window tinting  is customized to fit any size glass blocks, eliminates 99% of UV rays with up to 83% solar heat rejection.  Without hiding your glass block architecture, our tinting application enhances  the glass block allure and adds energy efficiency and UV protection. 

For those not living within reasonable travel distance from our Florida based company, we offer a DIY kit that can be purchased directly from our website.  Our DIY  kits are shipped worldwide as the film is remarkably resilient in any climate.

One of our long distance customers sent us pictures of herself applying tint using our DIY installation kit.

Wella!

Her completed project! She is now able to fully enjoy the large entry foyer of her beautiful home!

If you have glass block in your home or office, or have plans to include glass block architecture in the future, we encourage you to visit Glass Block Tinting.
