Imagine Window Film on Your Boat

We were recently contacted by the owner of  “IMAGINE”. His new 450 Prestige looked awesome inside and out.

Let’s be honest, buying a new boat rivals the purchase of a new car by a long shot. So, amid the exhilaration, who thinks about “what could be wrong with my newest pride and joy”?

It didn’t take long before the owner of IMAGINE was imagining a much cooler interior and far less glare to contend with… was there something overlooked?

Indeed there was….

With out having window film installed on her glass, IMAGINE and all on board had zero protection from the sun’s adverse effects.

 

Known as marine window tinting specialists and highly recommended by yacht owners and esteemed marine brokers throughout Florida, we were expertly qualified to eliminate these problems…. and then some.

Because of it’s durability and performance in harsh salt-water environments, we chose to apply Panorama 35 Ceramic film on IMAGINE.  Once finished, the owner and his family never imagined how much more they would enjoy cruising in their new yacht!

As predicted, Panoramic 35 bought a wave of benefits:

  • greatly improved IMAGINE’S interior comfort by rejecting up to 58% of total solar energy blasting through her untreated glass
  • increased her air-conditioning efficiency with much appreciated less fuel consumption
  • low visible reflectivity provided occupants with clear views and reduced the annoying glare that was one of their chief complaints
  • eliminated the potential of interruption with IMAGINE’S navigational systems
  • decreased risk of skin cancer and would help to preserve IMAGINE’S beautiful interior from fading with 99% of UVA and UVB rays blocked

Heat-shrinking ceramic film on the exterior of a boat’s windshield is one of many techniques that we’ve mastered.

Imagine, Panoramic 35 Ceramic window film eliminated the heat discomfort, cut down glare for increased visibility, provided safety against harmful UV radiation, added fuel efficiency with less a/c running AND added aesthetic sophistication to an already fabulous looking boat.

Since we are in high demand for projects out of the local area, window tinting Tampa has extended installations throughout Florida and beyond.

Window Film Benefits 101

Vista room

You live in Florida. Your residence gets insanely hot. Glare is downright annoying. The air conditioner sounds like the train huffing “I think I can, I think I can”. Electric bills are through the roof. You move your couch and notice the expensive area carpet now has a discolored look. New neighbors from Seattle keep peering in (creepy).

Sound familiar? It sure does to most residents who are not informed about the MANY benefits of window tinting.  And the kicker is that in most cases, the cost of having window film installed pays for itself with reduced energy bills over time. But that’s just for starters.

I like illustrations and track records of proven results to make my point. I’ve posted a few comparison pictures that  show window film acting as a barrier on glass to reduce heat from the sun, cut out glare, and protect interior furnishings and occupants from ultraviolet ray damage.

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.

12049707_1171627222848346_913892067486825946_n

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.

Window Tinting Cool News for Hot Views

Coastlines and barrier islands in Florida are replete with condominiums.

condos-3

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!

waterview2              beachfront-condo-2

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!
