Solar Protection Window Film Aids Skin Cancer Prevention

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. 

3.5 million cases of cancer in over two million people diagnosed annually, skin cancer is found to be the most common form in the United States.

Florida has the second highest rate of melanoma cases in the nation.


Dangerous exposure to ultraviolet rays is preventable!

When you’re at the beach, remember to protect your eyes with sun glasses and your skin with applications of a high SPF sunscreen.

When your at home, protect your interior furnishings and occupants with Solar Gard’s Panorama UV Protection Window Film!

Ultraviolet A rays (UVA) in particular are responsible for causing extensive damage – including initiating skin cancer development and causing fading of furniture and flooring.

Though quite expensive, if necessary floors and furniture can be replaced.

How about your family’s skin?

While ordinary glass offers little to no protection from the sun, our UV blocking window films do, and come in 6 options ranging from clear to dark.

With a 99% reduction in UV rays, our Solar Control Window Film preserves the color of your interior furnishings….and more importantly helps to protect your loved ones from harmful UV radiation.

The sun’s rays are getting stronger and more dangerous as we approach summer in Florida.

Prepare now and call for a free estimate and one of our window film specialists will demonstrate how your home and those inside can be better protected!

Temps are inching into the 90’s and the humidity is starting to creep up as well. Another HOT summer is just ahead.

Solar Gard’s Panorama Slate is one series of our selection of films to choose from that will prepare your home for the onslaught of summertime heat.

The glass wall in this family room with sweeping views of the golf course were a knock-out. But so were the glare and heat that were invading the comfort inside and interrupting the views. With only half the glass panes filmed, the difference was amazing!

Window Film Keeps Florida Homes Cool in Summer

We’ve just entered spring and already afternoon temperatures are clear warnings that summer-time heat is quickly approaching. 

“Honey! Why isn’t the a/c cooling the house down? Ulch, we better come up with a plan before summer arrives”!!

Floridians know all too well that along with summer comes heat, humidity, glare, UV rays, and shocking electric bills!

High Impact Glass Solutions has been busier than ever window tinting Tampa homes with our Panorama solar window films to help prepare homeowners for what’s to come.

With Panorama solar window film on your windows, there is no need for window coverings to block the sun… or window fans to cool rooms down.

For personal aesthetics and if needed to satisfy HOA restrictions, our wide selection of colors allows home owners to choose from darker tint shades to an optical grade film so light, that its hardly visible on the windows. 

This sitting room faced west and was getting pounded with blistering heat and glare from the sun. With Panorama film applied on the right two glass sliders, the reduction of heat and absence of glare made a significant difference.


Besides making homes more comfortable and rejecting glare, the reduction of up to 70% of the solar heat entering through filmed windows lowers those outrageous energy bills. Plus, since Panorama solar films block 99% of the ultraviolet rays, furnishings in the home are protected from fading and more importantly, the chances of UV radiation skin cancer is greatly reduced.

The filmed window is easy to find in this room. Look at the difference!

We can’t change hot summer conditions outside.
But we can improve your home’s conditions inside!

Call for a complimentary evaluation and one of our specialists will also demonstrate how our films will look and perform on your windows.
