High Impact Glass Solutions Finishes Three Month Project
Since its inception in 1913, Temple Beth Sholom’s congregation in Sarasota has grown from 20 families to exceed 750 families. To meet the needs of increasing membership, expansion has been ongoing throughout the years. Today, the Temple is comprised of three buildings that house the Sanctuary, Religious School, Day School, Complete Judaica Shop, Judaica Museum and Library…plus multiple offices for very special people with very special jobs.
The windows at Temple Beth Sholom needed storm protection and less sun penetration for energy efficiency. We set out to fulfill these needs with the same process we apply to evaluate window tinting Tampa‘s churches and synagogues.
A thorough inspection uncovered unique areas with critical needs. As part of my final evaluation, I requested that an unbiased certified engineering consultant review my findings and recommendations. In doing so, Carotti Engineering, LLC of Bradenton made routine inspections and issued a detailed report supporting my recommendations.
Note: Along with the application of window films, High Impact Glass Solutions provided additional energy efficiency by sealing the perimeters of doors and windows where damage from air and water intrusion were detected. Collectively, our steps taken to perfect every application resulted in substantial discounted insurance rates for Beth Shalom.
Certain specialty glass areas were recommended for alternative impact protection. These recommendations were significant to the overall success of the project.
We just completed a 30 day installation, including nights and weekends, on a 100 yard catwalk that spans between two towers. These towers are two of four buildings that we had previously applied LLumar Vista High Impact 8 mil V38 film. The employees quickly adjusted to the increased comfort in their offices and apparently did not appreciate having to walk through this STEAMING HOT catwalk.
To resolve the problem, we applied Vista 28 Solar Control window film on the regular catwalk glass and LLumar white frost window film on the top angled glass. These applications made a significant drop in the temperatures that were caused by direct sun exposure throughout the day.
Without the benefit of lights in sections of the catwalk, at night we attached lights to our head bands. We have since renamed this installation the “moonwalk”. Though challenging, the film installation is another testimony for window tinting Tampa at it’s best. I cannot emphasize enough the performance one can expect from LLumar Vista film. Lower energy consumption equates to lower monthly electric bills. Over time, the film will actually pay for itself.
So, how do YOU initiate more comfort and energy efficiency in YOUR building? Stepone: my company performs a free evaluation of your building. Step two: we make you fully aware of how much heat gain is coming through your glass and how we can effectively reduce it. Step three: we execute the plan without any disruption to the daily flow of your business activity. Step four?

Cott Beverage in Tampa had a dilemma. Their conference room needed privacy without making it dark or giving it a closed in feeling. Our vast experience with window tinting Tampahas made us the specialists in finding solutions. We were happy to take on the challenge!
LLumar’s Glass Enhanced Film portfoliohad precisely the film that would transform their conference room with the look of etched glass, adding privacy but still allowing for an open, airy environment. Problem solved without the high cost of etched glass.
The staff at Cott Beverage selected a beautiful Frosted Sparkle film. As we applied the film, we hand-cut out a one inch border. The end results provided the privacy with just the right touch of elegance that Cott Beverage was hoping for.
