Dual Reflective Window Tinting Amazing on St. Petersburg Business

Yoga is a total mind-body workout with incredible results for improving overall health. The Body Electric Yoga Company in St. Petersburg offers a fantastic mix of programs. However, the building lacked energy efficiency and as you can plainly see, the windows were in desperate need of a “window film workout“!

The outside lacked the inviting appeal that this awesome studio deserved and the owners were bogged down under the “weight” of heavy electric bills.

Hot spots throughout the building caused by unyielding sun and heat penetrating through so many window panes caused immense discomfort and ghastly glare. These problems could easily disrupt business and we were not about to let that happen.

Unlike any structure we’ve been in, the building was totally unique inside with it’s original architecture still in tact. Very impressive….but also VERY challenging. Every one of the 128 panes of glass was at least 30 years old. Back then, when these windows were installed, glaze was applied with a trowel. By now, with age and weathering, the glaze and window edges had become utterly disgusting!

The degree of difficulty to tint these windows rose to the top of the scale. Ahem, actually it tipped the scale. Just look at the condition of the glass butted up to the panes!

Okay, because the project became an unusual window film installation,  we devised a special system. Each individual pane was numbered and would be filmed with Solar Gard’s Architectural TrueVue Window Film. The film for each pane was then plotted back at the shop and THEN applied at the job site. This way time was saved and we were able to give every glass the special attention each one needed.

TrueVue window film proved to be the perfect selection for the needs of Body Electric Yoga Company:

Key Benefits

  • Reflective exterior maximizes heat rejection resulting in excellent energy savings and payback time
  • Low interior reflectance maintains views to the outside, especially at night
  • Contains our darkest product which can reduce glare by up to 94%
  • UV blockers protect people and property from damaging UV rays
Once the windows were filmed, we  then re-caulked them, filling in any light gaps and definitely giving them badly needed conformity. The difference was totally AMAZING!

Truly unlike our every day window film project but both the owners and the staff were astonished with such excellent results. So for us it was worth every glass “pain”!

It took tremendous patience and skill to tint and caulk the old, dinosaur crusty windows with such perfection. But that’s what we do window tinting Tampa. Our installers are trained for “excellence”, no matter how difficult the task.

Call us for a free demo of how to improve your building’s interior energy efficiency and comfort… and you got it, how awesome it can look on the outside!

Heat & UV Ray Reducing Window Film Predicted For Hot Florida Winter

Most folks are being pounded with freezing weather.

Here in Tampa Florida? We’re experiencing record highs.

Superb days at the beach or poolside. Back at the ranch, not so superb!

The extended hot weather is causing homes and businesses to contend with summer-like problems. You know…. heat, glare interruption on televisions and monitors, and UV ray dangers filtrating through untreated glass!

With record heat, our installers are busy window tinting Tampa with solar control window film.  These films make a difference no matter what the season is!

  • Clear, distortion-free adhesives bonded to the inside of glass strengthens your windows.
    • Reduces up to 75% of heat.
  • Screens out glare and dangerous Ultra violet rays.
  • Allows you to enjoy outside views in total comfort.
  • Reduces energy costs with less run time on your air conditioner.
  • Lifetime guarantee for superior performance.

fadingUltra violet rays cause an equally disturbing problem that often goes without notice until the damage is already done. When we move furniture during a film installation it is not uncommon to see fading floors. Had there been solar control film on the windows, this could’ve been avoided.

We sure appreciate our beautiful Florida weather. With a solar control window film installation, you’ll appreciate sunny days even more! No heat building up, glare gone for good, far less risk of UV damage, and a more energy efficient environment.

High Impact Glass Solutions installs solar window film for cooler and safer residence.
Amazing! With solar control filmed windows, we can open the blinds and enjoy the views! 

Many installers have years of experience. But its the quality and skill set of experience that counts, not the length of time. For this reason, we are called to mentor window tinters throughout the United States and travel to foreign countries to perform window tinting installations that require our level of expertise.

A complimentary evaluation and free film demonstration are your first steps to a “record-breaking” window film installation!

Dual Reflective Window Film For Less Heat and More Views

Enclosed screened porches are often referred to as sun rooms. They serve as casual living areas or they can be used for more formal gatherings.

florida-room-1    florida-room-2

Either way, in Florida we call them Florida rooms.

That makes sense!

Away from pesky bugs and protected from rain, Florida rooms are great areas where families can relax and entertain all year. But because the sun LOVES these rooms, they can also end up being a “nightmarish” addition to homes and condos.

We were called by a gal with an expansive Florida room. Visions of enjoying sunsets while relaxing in the privacy of her Florida room were dashed by glare and overwhelming heat. She tried shades but they only blocked her views and did little to stop the sun’s heat from penetrating through.

After window tinting Tampa homes and commercial buildings for nearly two decades, we’ve mastered filming glass in ANY area. Confident with our ability and pleased with the recommended film, our customer felt very comfortable putting her Florida room into our hands…. literally.

We removed the shades and prepped the glass for our film installation that would deliver a dramatic difference.

We were about to  make her sunset visions become a reality!

 

Our Dual reflective films provided a high degree of reflectivity on the exterior for blocking the sun’s intense rays and glare, and added privacy. The interior layers of the film which are less reflective gave our customer the best visual clarity when looking out. Her filmed windows were able to reduce up to 79% of the radiant heat, reject 99.9% of damaging UV rays,  and eliminated the glare that interfered with those missed sunset views.

Finally, this Florida room was ready to be used for the purpose it was initially intended.

Our FREE personalized evaluation and film demonstration effectively define our professional approach and illustrate  how our films transform your glass into the solution instead of the problem.

Belleair Beach Business “Banks” on Window Tinting Makeover!

The Home Banc in Belleair Beach was in dire need of removing very old, failing window film. It looked nasty and the outdated technology of the existing film did little to stop the bank from heating up inside.

This sonario is nothing new to our installation crews who are busily window tinting Tampa businesses in the Bay area and surrounding locations.  We often head out to Tampa’s beautiful beachy areas and its not for getting a sun tan.

One of our recent projects in Belleair Beach was to make the Home Banc look and feel better. And that’s exactly what we did.

11742653_1031853326825737_5137629831207081043_n 11698716_1031853390159064_4154631679906701645_n

The old film was obviously (and painfully) faded and peeling. Instead of looking appealing, it looked appalling!To give the bank an aesthetic make-over with less sun and heat causing discomfort to employees and customers, we installed our dual-reflective solar-reducing film. Notice the window above the ladder? Ahhhhh….

The film’s reflectivity provided high levels of solar heat rejection and stopped the glaring sun from streaming through the windows. In addition to adding comfort and energy-efficiency, beautiful views could be enjoyed without compromise.
