Tampa Window Tinting & Caulking Commercial Sarasota Synagogue

High Impact Glass Solutions Finishes Three Month Project

Since its inception in 1913, Temple Beth Sholom’s congregation in Sarasota has grown from 20 families to exceed 750 families. To meet the needs of increasing membership, expansion has been ongoing throughout the years. Today, the Temple is comprised of three buildings that house the Sanctuary, Religious School, Day School, Complete Judaica Shop, Judaica Museum and Library…plus multiple offices for very special people with very special jobs.

Pane by pane, the difference with film was felt AND seen!

The windows at Temple Beth Sholom needed storm protection and less sun penetration for energy efficiency. We set out to fulfill these needs with the same process we apply to evaluate  window tinting Tampa‘s churches and synagogues.

A thorough inspection uncovered unique areas with critical needs. As part of my final evaluation, I requested that an unbiased certified engineering consultant review my findings and recommendations. In doing so, Carotti Engineering, LLC of Bradenton made routine inspections and issued a detailed report supporting my recommendations.

Note: Along with the application of window films, High Impact Glass Solutions provided additional energy efficiency by sealing the perimeters of doors and windows where damage from air and water intrusion were detected. Collectively, our steps taken to perfect every application resulted in substantial discounted insurance rates for Beth Shalom.

This entrance is now safe, energy efficient, beautiful and structurally sound!


Personally and professionally, it was an honor to make such significant improvements for the Beth Sholom “family”!

Letters to Santa Asking For Window Tinting Tampa

Why is Window Tinting Tampa the #1 Christmas Gift?

Santa wish list
Folks, while you’re out shopping, celebrating with family and friends, or away on a holiday vacation, who’s protecting your house?

No one! All while thieves are scoping out your twinkling Christmas tree surrounded by piles of  “come and get me” presents.

What an enticing sight… makes them salivate.

No wonder Christmas is the busiest time on a burglar’s calendar!

It takes a thug less than three minutes to break through glass that has not been treated with security window film.

Don’t be left with stolen presents, shattered glass and having to deal with timely insurance claims.

Don’t allow Christmas joy to become Christmas boo-hoo for your tiny loved ones!


What works for window tinting Tampa is simply preventing forced entry altogether! Window tinting Tampa with safety and security films on windows, glass doors, and sliders, delays, deters, and denies anyone…..other than Santa of course, from breaking through glass every day of the year. Not just during holidays.

Your weakest point of entry now provides protection against natural catastrophes, hurricanes, explosions, bomb blasts, vandalism, burglary, glass breakage and turbulent weather. Holidays or not!

All of our safety and security films have passed large missile impact tests and meet GSA and Dade County Blast standards proven to fortify glass against brute force. With our additional process known as the “wet seal anchoring system”, a structural bond attaches the film, the glass, and the frame together. When done properly, this application ensures that your windows and glass areas have achieved the highest degree of prevention from being popped out of their frames.

Be smart… be safe. Put window tinting on the top of your “wish list” and call us for a complimentary demonstration of just how merry your Christmas can safely be!

Catwalk Vista Window Film Installation

Another Victory for Window Tinting Tampa

We just completed a 30 day installation, including nights and weekends, on a 100 yard catwalk that spans between two towers. These towers are two of four buildings that we had previously applied LLumar Vista High Impact 8 mil V38 film. The employees quickly adjusted to the increased comfort in their offices and apparently did not appreciate having to walk through this STEAMING HOT catwalk.

To resolve the problem, we applied Vista 28 Solar Control window film on the regular catwalk glass and LLumar white frost window film on the top angled glass. These applications made a significant drop in the temperatures that were caused by direct sun exposure throughout the day.

Without the benefit of lights in sections of the catwalk, at night we attached lights to our head bands. We have since renamed this installation the “moonwalk”. Though challenging, the film installation is another testimony for window tinting Tampa at it’s best. I cannot emphasize enough the performance one can expect from LLumar Vista film. Lower energy consumption equates to lower monthly electric bills. Over time, the film will actually pay for itself.

Even the IRS is agreeable to helping commercial buildings by extending tax credits for window film installations.

So, how do YOU initiate more comfort and energy efficiency in YOUR building? Step one: my company performs a free evaluation of your building. Step two: we make you fully aware of how much heat gain is coming through your glass and how we can effectively reduce it. Step three:  we  execute the plan without any disruption to the daily flow of your business activity. Step four?

Cott Beverage Chooses Decorative Film

Sometimes Glass Can Make You Feel Too Obvious!








Cott Beverage in Tampa had a dilemma. Their conference room needed privacy without making it dark or giving it a closed in feeling. Our vast experience with window tinting Tampa has made us the specialists in finding solutions. We were happy to take on the challenge!

LLumar’s Glass Enhanced Film portfolio had precisely the film that would transform their conference room with the look of etched glass, adding privacy but still allowing for an open, airy environment. Problem solved without the high cost of etched glass.

The staff at Cott Beverage selected a beautiful Frosted Sparkle film. As we applied the film, we hand-cut out a one inch border. The end results provided the privacy with just the right touch of elegance that Cott Beverage was hoping for.
