Panorama Window Films Rule Heat and Glare Reduction

Nothing gives your home an open, welcoming flow more than natural light.

AND…

Nothing gives your home discomforting heat and sun glare more than natural light.

Prior to window film technology, this dichotomy had no solution other than tolerance and sweat.

Then along came Solar Gard’s Dual-Reflective Panorama Slate Series of window films. Many of our recent projects window tinting Tampa homes and businesses have found spectacular results with the many benefits of Panorama on their glass:

  • Exceptional solar rejection performance with a more neutral finish.
  • Views are maintained with reduced interior and exterior reflectance,
  • Increased privacy by day with minimal reflectivity at night.
  • Up to 79% of solar energy rejection  providing greater
    temperature stability for eliminating hot spots.
  • Reduced fading of furnishings and less risk of skin damage with 99% ultraviolet ray protection.

Look at the beauty and results Slate 20 gave this home!

With the filmed sliders opened a bit the difference the film made was quite obvious. Panorama Slate 20 effectively eliminated the glare and heat while adding a gorgeous hue to the breathtaking view.

The sun hammered the rear of this water front home making their family room uninhabitable. Thanks to the window film installation with Panorama Slate 20, this room is the center attraction in the home and with this view, it should be!


Practically invisible when installed onto glass, you will enjoy your home or office with wide

open blinds, but without any heat and glare!

Sunshine is one of the many reasons we love living in Florida. But too much of a “good thing” is not always best.

Window Tinting ~ The Heat & Safety Solution for Florida Homes

Most people who move to Florida do so because they find the summer-like weather and light-filled rooms in their home extremely attractive. Boaters love the unlimited waterways out to open water but not everyone has a boat. Mostly everyone however, lives in some sort of dwelling that has windows. The windows allow natural lighting and views to the Floridian scenery.

Beautiful sight to behold….until heat builds up, eyes are squinting from excessive glare, interior furnishings are fading, visits to the dermatologist are scheduled, and electric bills are mini-mortgage payments every month.

That’s the bad news. The good news is you can have your cake and eat it too!

Our selection of solar window films allows you to have your windows free of blinds or coverings, and keeps the heat and UV damage outside ~ where they belong.

Instead of basking in the sun, bask in the benefits of filmed windows!

Filmed glass sure knocks heat and glare out of the ball park. Bye-bye heat and squinting eyes!

Window Film Reduces Heat and Glare
Keep your window coverings open and let the sunlight shine through. In addition to blocking heat, our solar window films cut glare by up to 87%. Imagine, less glare interference while watching TV in a much cooler environment without giving up those treasured views.

Lower Cooling Costs Up to 30% – 50%
Approximately half of a home’s utility bills are wasted by loss of heat and heat gain through untreated windows. With distortion free technology, our solar window films add a tinted or invisible barrier on your glassed areas to reject the sun’s heat and significantly improve energy efficiency.

The family in this home was AMAZED when we installed film on their first window. Pretty obvious why!

Protection from Harmful UV Rays
Most fabrics, furnishings, and artwork can fade simply by allowing sunlight to pass through an untreated window. Our solar window films will  block up to 99% of all UVA and UVB rays, protecting your family from skin damage and preserving the color of your interior furnishings.

Safeguard Your Home and Family
When flying debris or other forms of brute force cause windows to break, window film performs as a powerful barrier to help hold glass in place.

Should an unexpected impact occur, rely on filmed windows to help protect your property against damage and your family from serious injury caused by dangerous shards of broken glass.

 

Window films have been used for decades. Over time, window film technology has advanced with innovations needed to meet the ever-changing demands that nature and  architecture create. In doing so, home window tinting provides an affordable alternative to glass replacement when your goal is to improve energy efficiency, comfort, and safety.

Solar Control Film Adds Energy Efficiency and Exterior Appeal Tampa, St. Petersburg, Orlando, Sarasota

One of  our recent window film installations served as a perfect example of what happens to a building with old, outdated window film that lacks luster and performance.

High Impact Glass Solutions removes old film and replaces with solar control film on St. Petersburg building

Besides presenting a horrid impression with such an unsightly appearance, the window film failed to give the interior of the building any heat relief and rather than being energy efficient it became a money pit for insanely high electric bills.

We were contacted to deliver a cost-saving strategy to restrain the high energy costs, create an  improved working environment, and embellish the exterior curb appeal.

We  removed the nasty film and prepped all windows for the application of Solar Gard Architectural Truevue 05.

Glass ready for film application that will change how this building looks, how it feels, and how more energy efficient it will be!

In our experience window tinting Tampa buildings with similar needs, we’ve found Solar Gard Truevue 05 window film to be a grand slam for optimal results:

  • Window film provides energy saving by reducing air-conditioner usage.
  • Window film improves interior with year-round comfort.
  • Window film protects against ultraviolet damage and fading.
  • Window film diminishes bothersome glare.
  • Window film adds enhancement to exterior appearance.

Truevue 05 provided everything this building needed!

The untreated glass on the right had immense heat and glare blasting through. Filmed windows on the left stopped the sun and glare without obstructing any views.

Solar Gard window films are made of complex layers of various coated materials that control how the sun’s radiation passes through glass. The films are protected with a scratch-resistant coating, inspected and put through stringent endurance tests to provide the industry with a selection of high quality window films. 

Aging may improve certain wines and various cuts of beef. But as you saw from this project, the aging process can proffer a harsh effect on window film that hinders the sustainability of buildings. 

We can’t turn back the hands of time, but our window film installations can definitely make your building look and feel like it was built yesterday.

No matter what the age, call for your complimentary evaluation and free demonstration of how our window films will perform on your glass!

Safety & Security Window Tinting Home Protection

The dictionary defines the word “protection” as the act of keeping from harm, attack or injury.

Webster must have had our safety and security window film in mind….

120px-broken_glass_belfast_april_2010

What happens when you drop a glass object? More than likely it shatters and often into a zillion pieces.

Caution – danger zone!

On a broader spectrum, broken glass windows and doors can splinter into razor sharp shards of glass capable of causing major damage and life-threatening injuries. Any home or business with ordinary glass is highly vulnerable to theses dangers when brute force is used. Which brings me back to our safety and security window film.

Simple Protection with Powerful Results:
We offer films that give your glassed areas the industry’s toughest and most durable layer of protection. With an increase of home invasions and retail stores being broken into, you can out-wit the vandals with our safety and security film applied on your windows.

broken-glass-door

Plain glass without film is easily breached. It takes a burglar less than three minutes to gain access into your space. By the time an alarm company alerts the police and they actually arrive, the burglar has successfully executed his plan…. and is long gone.

Filmed glass deters, delays, even denies a burglar’s entry altogether!

Forming a strong but virtually invisible shield that holds broken glass together, you can make your windows the solution instead of the the problem for outwitting vandals! Window tinting Tampa customers have called with amazing testimonies of how their filmed glass diverted catastrophic events.

Sure glad that I have film on my bedroom window!

As Webster so correctly expressed, act to keep your property and loved ones from harm, attack or injury.
This is the protection that our safety and security films offer!

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!
