Another McDonalds’ Windows Tinted “Just Lovin it”!

Looks like we’ve given another McDonalds’ restaurant something to smile about! 

It’s owner, employees and customers are all  “just lovin it”!

As the world’s #1 restaurant serving fast food, the owner wished to upgrade the outside of his
 establishment and the inside environment to first class as well.

Being the #1 company window tinting Tampa and the surrounding cities, we knew we could deliver.

McDonalds’ is about to become more appetizing with high performance solar control window film.

Sun, heat, and distracting glare poured in prior to the film installation.

Panorama 30 is not a selection on the McDonald’s menu. However, making substantial improvements, it proved to be the best selection from our menu of window films.

Filmed windows rejected up to 79% of solar energy to regulate interior heat build up. This reduction resulted in a much cooler interior without patrons having to pull down shades or blinds. With this heat rejection performance, air conditioners ran less and cooling costs came down. Decreased glare from the sun and a 99% reduction in UV rays were additional side orders that filmed windows included.  

Panorama Slate 30 gave McDonalds’ exterior a sleek and subtle grey look to its windows and glass entrance. As part of the planet’s greatest fast food chain of restaurants, our ceramic film gave it the ultimate appetizing look it deserved.

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.

Solar Window Film Best Answer For Residential Sun Problems

The owners of this rustic, beautifully designed home were overwhelmed with interior heat,  sun glare, energy costs creeping up, and wood floors that were starting to fade.

High Impact Glass Solutions restores comfort and safety to home with window tinting installation g


We addressed each problem so they fully understood why and how our window film would make a huge difference.

Problem #1 – Reduce Heat!
Though they loved natural sunlight filling their home, untreated windows were also allowing heat to enter. Shutters covering the most problematic windows were only blocking their views, not the heat. For this reason, they felt discomforting hot spots and uneven temperatures throughout the residence.
Problem #2 –  Glare Go Away!
Transmitted through untreated glass, glare from sun is problematic all year round. The visibility in this home was adversely effected, making it hard for the family to watch TV and look at computer screens. Here again, using closed shutters was an inferior solution as they blocked views and natural light. With film applied, the shutters could be left open while glare would be reduced by 95%.
Problem #3 – Lower Energy Costs!
According to the EPA’s calculations, up to half of a home’s utility bills can be wasted by heat gain through untreated windows. By simply having us install our solar-reduction film, the amount of heat streaming through their untreated glass would be greatly reduced. This would give the a/c systems an appreciated rest and thereby reduce their cooling bills.
Problem #4 – Stop Further Fading!
Much of their interior floors were showing common results from sun exposure. Simply by allowing daylight to pass through untreated windows, the suns’ rays were damaging their gorgeous wood plank floors. Blocking up to 99.9% of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays, our window film would help protect their beautiful furnishings from further damage.

No Fall in Tampa as Heat Continues

Many parts of the country are experiencing cooler days.


In much of Florida autumn with falling leaves is a memory for some and just a pretty picture for others. Either way, the only thing falling for us is sweat!

But that’s a small price to pay to live in paradise, right? Well, yes ….. and no. Our electric bills can hardly be considered small! Seems like the a/c system never shuts off! 

Explains why our installers are busy as ever window tinting Tampa with our solar control window films.


Look at the difference window tinting makes! Partially filmed glass shows that no matter what the view, it can be fully enjoyed without glare, UV rays, and heat streaming through the windows.  And how awesome not to hear the a/c humming all day.

Look at the difference the window tinting makes!

Windows without solar control film allow unfiltered sunlight in that causes discomforting hot spots, annoying glare on monitors, dangerous UV rays that are known to fade furniture and even worse, damage our skin!

Don’t fall for the sun’s heat and harmful rays where you reside. With our solar control film on your windows, sun-related problems will fall away:

  • Improve comfort and maintain cool temperature consistency from one room to another.
  • Give your HVAC a rest & reduce cooling costs by up to 30%.
  • Reduce glare & improve computer and television viewing.
  • Block up to 99% of UV rays to minimize fading of interior furnishings.
  • Reduce the risk of skin cancer and premature aging from UV radiation.


Part of the beauty of autumn is the different colors that the leaves will turn. The beauty of our solar reducing films is the performance you can expect…..and by the way, they come in different tint colors to choose from as well.

Guess you can enjoy a bit of fall in Florida after all!

Free demonstrations always – Great results for a lifetime.
