Museum Chooses Window Tinting to Resolve Glass Block Heat Issues
I’m not talking about dinosaur bones or cavemen skulls.
I’m referring to the prestigious Mullin Automotive Museum in Los Angeles California which houses vintage automobiles worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
The Museum was designed with an a/c monitoring system to keep the interior show rooms cool around the clock. To the surprise of the Museum’s curators, the power unleashed by the sun every day was too much for their air conditioning systems to handle.
UV rays and heat build-up were causing colors to fade, irreplaceable wood detailing on many of the cars to crack, and discomforting heat for the thralls of visitors. Constructed with 1,014 blocks of glass around the circumference of the building, there was provision for plenty of privacy. But if left untreated any longer, the UV damage alone would risk the condition of the museum’s irreplaceable inventory.
With no solution in sight, the museum’s concerned staff searched to find a miracle. That’s when they heard about High Impact Glass Solutions and our Glass Block Tinting Division!
CALIFORNIA, HERE WE COME!
Rolls of film and hand tools were shipped to LA. Plane flights were arranged and before we knew it, one by one, we began the task of tinting 1,014 glass blocks.
GLARE & UV RAYS POUNDING AUTOMOBILES WHEN WE ARRIVED.
Noticeable difference as blocks were progressively tinted.
Block by block the museum shaped up beautifully!
With all blocks tinted, cars were no longer in danger, energy efficiency was added to the museum, and comfort for visitors was restored.
