Phoenix Arizona is known as the “hottest big city in the U.S.” . It consistently ranks number one for the most days a year when temperatures rise above 89 °F or 99 °F.
BUT TODAY ARIZONA HIT 119 DEGREES!
The sizzling heat in Phoenix halted planes from taking off. Business owners and scores of homes with glass block construction were also adversely effected.
The higher the heat is outside, the hotter it becomes inside as glass block offers little defense against the sun’s heat, glare, UV rays…. and zilch for energy efficiency,
Classy looking? Yes.
Energy efficient? Not at all.
At one time, there were two options for glass block owners.
First option ~ Replace the glass blocks with traditional single pane or double pane glass and have solar film installed. However, ripping out blocks and window replacement is an insanely expensive option and you’d lose the beauty and ambiance that the glass blocks provided.
Second option ~ Custom order drapes, shades, screens, or suction-held solar shade panels. Any one of these alternative choices are high-dollar items that do little for adding energy-efficiency, while doing a lot to cover up your beautiful glass blocks!
We offer the best option!
An exterior application of highly resistant solar film custom cut to fit any size block adds amazing anti-heat, UV ray rejection, and “get rid of the glare” performance.
