Window Tinting Cool News for Hot Views

Coastlines and barrier islands in Florida are replete with condominiums.

For many folks, waterfront living is a lifelong dream. Who wouldn’t enjoy coastal privacy, a beach just steps away,  and the ability to quickly cast off for a day of boating?

But what is the MOST appreciated feature that draws them to waterfront living?

They love the views!

Yet as most waterfront condo owners attest, stunning views also come along with stunning problems:

  • excessive heat
  • distracting glare
  • damaging ultraviolet rays
  • soaring energy costs

In an effort to resolve these problems, many condo owners resort to shades or blinds for cooling rooms down and for protection from ultraviolet ray dangers.  To compensate for this unfavorable decision, lights are turned on to brighten rooms, discomforting heat still radiates through the window covers, and those stunning views? Gone!

We are Tampa Bay’s most trusted window film company  resolving these vexing problems. With the performance of our sun control films and our proficiency with window film installations, we give your condo optimal comfort, safety, AND you’ll have your views back!

Tainting waterfront condo

Applied to your windows’ interior, our film installations make an amazing difference that can be felt and seen….an absolute “go” for views with “many desirable stops”:

  • STOPS occupants from feeling uncomfortably warm by rejecting up to 78% of Total Solar Energy (with lower TSR, your condo is subjected to far less of the sun’s radiant energy, making  a cooler environment for occupants).
  • STOPS a/c units from running overtime resulting in lower energy consumption.
  • STOPS the sun’s glare to eliminate eye-strain and interference while watching television or working on monitors.
  • STOPS by-passers from peering into ground floor condos.
  • STOPS up to 99% of ultraviolet energy that is harmful to human and animal skin and damaging to fabrics and furnishings.
  • STOPS the need to cover up windows and OPENS up those views that attracted you to the condo in the first place.

Since 2003, we’ve been successfully window tinting Tampa condos to STOP sun-related problems.

We perform free estimates with a display of our sun control films demonstrated on your windows.  We treat this first step as a personalized evaluation based on YOUR CONDO’S GLASS and YOUR PERSONAL NEEDS.

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.

With failing film removed, the new Panorama Ceramic 35 delighted the owner with results he hoped for and more:

  • greatly improved interior comfort by rejecting up to 58% of total solar energy blasting through untreated glass
  • 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!

Before you chart your next voyage, call for a free demonstration of how our ceramic film can take your boating pleasure to the next level!

“What can we do to reduce expenses and protect our bottom line”?

Window tinting stop money from going out the window


Put in simpler terms, which area can be improved so that we stop throwing hard earned money  out of the the window?

Less Heat More Cool Comfort Commercial Building Clearwater

The Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa was experiencing  “hot spots and glare” issues.

We have over 16 years of window tinting Tampa’s commercial and government building sector. Our initial energy audit is a crucial step in our evaluation to recommend the best film in any given building for comfort, safety, energy savings, tax savings, and insurance incentives.

The management at the Hyatt Regency continues to feel comfortable with our expertise. Likewise, we continue to deliver cost-saving strategies to restrain rising energy costs while keeping their employees and guests safe and comfortable.

This picture of a half tinted window says it all. We applied Panorama Ceramic CX35  film on the left panes. With less heat penetrating through the filmed glass, glare is noticeably reduced, and after windows were totally filmed, comfort was greatly increased.

Thanks to the performance of our ceramic window film,  all  “hot spots” are now located  in the Spa!

 

Our recommendation to apply Panorama Ceramic CX35  proved to be the ideal film choice.  Since only a partial area of the building’s side was being filmed, our goal was two-fold. One, install film with the ability to reject extreme heat and two, the film needed to be invisible for aesthetic appeal. Panorama Ceramic CX35 met both goals perfectly!

As with all of our window tinting installations, performance never disappoints. With solar heat and rays blocked, the Hyatt continues to see reduced cooling costs by up to 30% and temperature consistency from one area to another securing overall comfort. Additionally, our solar films block up to 99% of harmful UV rays. From this benefit, the Hyatt’s furnishings have a longer lifespan with less risk of fading.

Think about the “fade-resistant” performance for a minute.  Every one of us has some amount of furniture and we all walk on some type of flooring. Can you imagine the multitude of furnishings that goes into this beach resort with 250 guest suites, restaurants, conference rooms, spas, etc.? Prolonging the need to replace the furnishings alone dramatically effects their annual expenses.

Add to the sonario their additional energy savings and it becomes apparent why having the best window film on the Hyatt Regency’s glass is an essential strategy for a top-performing environment.

Increasing heat problems and rising costs to energy budgets are common problems shared throughout the commercial sector. Call for our complimentary evaluation and window film recommendation tailored to fit your building’s needs.
