Ultra Low Reflectance Films Are Here! | Sarasota Window Tint

Solar-X of Sarasota is pleased to announce the arrival in stock of the new ULR window film series. The latest offering from SolarGard®, the ULR (“ultra-low reflectance”) films incorporate non-metallized nanoparticle technology that offers the lowest interior or exterior reflectivity of any SolarGard® film. These beautiful architectural window films provide both energy savings and improved comfort while allowing the maximum amount of healthful, natural light to stream in to your home, office, or storefront. As always, they are manufactured to the high quality standards that you can expect from SolarGard®; backed by a limited lifetime residential or 12-year commercial warranty, and recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.

Ranging in appearance from virtually clear to a soft “smoke-colored” non-reflective tint, ULR films are perfect for homeowners who want to minimize any change in the appearance of their windows; perhaps they live in a deed restricted community that doesn’t allow reflective or dark tinted films, or maybe they want to capitalize on their views without the distraction of the “roomside” reflection that is often associated with typical reflective films. Perhaps they want to protect their families from the skin and eye damage that comes from exposure to UV light, while making their homes cooler and more restful by reducing unwanted glare.

Retail businesses with large display windows that face into the sun often feel like a furnace; but seldom is there anything they can do to slow heat intrusion into the storefront without losing the ability to see the merchandise on display. However, the clear, non-reflective appearance of ULR films allows for full “see-though” ability while reducing heat and protecting merchandise from sun fading and damage.

As always; you can expect Solar-X of Sarasota to install ULR films with the same care and attention to detail for which we have come to be known during our forty years of industry involvement. Contact Solar-X today to learn more about this sensational new family of films from SolarGard. Rated “A+” by the Better Business Bureau.

“HiLite” Window Film: The “Unseen” Benefits | Window Tinting

Panorama® “HiLite”  window film; manufactured by SolarGard®, has become the smash hit of the Panorama® product line – mostly for reasons that you’ll never see. What does that mean? It means that this extraordinary window film is virtually undetectable once applied to your windows! “HiLite” rejects Infrared and Ultraviolet light, but allows natural daylight to stream through your windows, all while stopping 55% to 61% of the sun’s heat (depending on which density you choose) from entering your home or office through the glass. It means you can enjoy the comfort of a high performance window film without the “room darkening” effect associated with so many other tinting products. It means you can enjoy the ambiance and feeling of well-being that comes from an environment filled with healthy, natural daylight. And you’ll feel even better knowing that your furnishings, artwork – and your skin! – is being protected from the harmful effects of ultraviolet light. The savings on your electric bill can feel pretty good too!

The most common objections to window film have always been related to appearance. Comments such as “too dark,” “too shiny,” “not natural” – were frequently heard as reasons for not being interested in film products. But all that changed with the introduction of “HiLite.” It is not dark, it is not shiny, and it leaves your view virtually unchanged – both day and night!

Solar-X of Sarasota is the area’s exclusive Panorama and HiLite dealer. We’ve been leading the way in introducing and installing sophisticated, eye-pleasing window films for nearly four decades! Discriminating home and business owners in Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota, and Venice know that when it comes to knowledgeable, honest consultation; and unrivaled craftsmanship in installation, Solar-X of Sarasota stands out as a company that gets the job done right, every time. Contact Solar-X today and see what the “HiLite hubbub” is all about. We’ll be glad to show you the “best looking window film you’ll never see!” Solar-X of Sarasota is rated “A+” by the Better Business Bureau.

“Dual Reflective” Window Films: Perfect For “Naked” Windows | Window Tinting

Panorama® “Slate” and “Autumn Bronze” Window Films Reduce Interior Reflection

Every day, we get many inquiries from people interested in window films “you can see out of, but you can’t see in.”  However, many people don’t realize that those same films reverse themselves at night;  making it extremely difficult if not impossible to see out. Couple that with the fact that many homes today have no draperies on many living area windows, and you can discover very quickly that you are living in a “hall of mirrors” once the sun goes down. There is a solution to this undesirable problem…

Enter Panorama® “Dual Reflective” window films. The soft, low reflectance surface on the room side of the film  reduces the “back reflection” so typical of many sun control films by as much as 80%; leaving you with windows that are much more natural looking, and in many cases, much easier to see out of at night. When drawing drapes for privacy’s sake is not necessary; or if there are no drapes to cover the inside surface of the glass; dual-reflective films such as Panorama® “Slate” series, or “Autumn Bronze” are the perfect “designer film” solution. And because they are Panorama® products, they are backed by Panorama’s “Premier Plus™” Warranty – the most expansive warranty coverage in the film industry. Solar-X of Sarasota is the area’s exclusive Panorama® and “Premier Plus™” dealer.Panorama Preferred Plus Warranty

Befiore you make any buying decision for your Bradenton, Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, or Venice area home; you owe it to yourself to preview our complete line of Panorama® window film products. Call or contact Solar-X of Sarasota today for a no-obligation consultation.

Referral Brings Comfort And Protection To Siesta Key Home | Siesta Key Window Tinting

Siesta Key Home Chooses Solar-X For Sun Control Window Tinting

Siesta-Key-UV-ProtectionThe Siesta Key home of Lynne Huff is a stunning example of refined tropical living. A wonderfully “open” feeling, stylish furnishings and refinements, and casual elegance combine to create a home worthy of a write-up in “Southern Living.” So, when a friend of Ms. Huff – a professional property manager and past client of Solar-X – recommended that she consider protecting all that beauty with premium quality Panorama® “HiLite 70™” spectrally selective window tinting; she listened. Then she acted.

A consultation with senior sales rep Brian Gregg quickly established that she wasn’t overwhelmed with major issues like discomfort from heat intrusion, excessive glare, or even severe fading and sun damage. She did, however; want to protect and preserve the beauty of her home’s interior from what issues she did have – regardless of their severity. She also wanted to accomplish these goals with no loss of light or change of appearance to her windows.

Siesta-Key-Window-Film-ServiceBrian explained to her how “HiLite 70″ could eliminate 99%+ of the damaging ultraviolet light – protecting her interior furnishings and art from fading – and reject 55% of the total solar energy; all with no reflective appearance, and no appreciable loss of light. She saw for herself that “HiLite 70″ would not change the look of her windows or darken her home; and she opted immediately for an installation. Now she is confident that she has given her home the best protection available, without sacrificing light or appearance.Siesta Key Window Film Protection

NFRC Certification Ensures Window Film Performance

Third Party Verification Assures “Performance As Advertised”

Panorama Films Are Certified By The NFRC!How can you rest assured that the window tint you have chosen for your home or office will perform as the sales consultant stated? One way is to check that the films are NFRC certified.

SolarGard Adds TrueVue Window Film To Product Mix | Window Tinting

Reasonably Priced “Dual-Reflective” Film Wows Clients And Film Dealers

Bekaert Specialty Films recently introduced TrueVue® “Dual-Reflective” window film as its latest addition to the SolarGard® product line. Possessed of exceptional optical clarity and natural appearance, this superior quality window film should quickly climb the popularity ladder as clients get a chance to see it, and learn of its benefits over conventional reflective films.

“Dual-reflective” films are constructed with a very low “interior reflectance” value; meaning, they don’t “back reflect” into a room – improving interior appearance – and they generally enhance nighttime viewing through the product. Most conventional films create a “mirrored” appearance on interior glass surfaces at night; making it almost impossible to see out. Dual-reflective films reduce or eliminate that problem. The improved appearance alone makes this product worthy of consideration as an “upgrade” – the affordability should “close the deal.”

Solar-X of Sarasota Sees Huge Sales Potential

TrueVue® is not just some “pretty” film for residential use. Commercial buildings and professional offices alike can benefit from its high-performance “wallop” – this film stops up to 82% of the total solar energy entering through windows! And the exterior reflectance is relatively low, presenting a more muted, eye-pleasing appearance than traditional, highly reflective films.

The professionals at Solar-X of Sarasota will be delighted to showcase this great-looking product for you, at your home or place of business. Once you’ve seen it, we’re sure that you too, will ask for it by name: TrueVue®! Another exceptional product from the area’s exceptional window film contractor: Solar-X of Sarasota. Proudly serving the residential and commercial clients of  Bradenton, Sarasota, Venice, Lakewood Ranch and surrounding communities since 1973!

HiLite Window Films Delight Clients|Sarasota Window Tinting

Spectrally Selective “HiLite™” Window Film Series is Sensational!!

What does someone call a window film that does everything it is supposed to do – reduce heat intrusion and glare, virtually eliminate UV rays with an SPF factor of 285, protect interiors and precious artwork from fading, and make every room more comfortable – all while being virtually undetectable? Well…actual words so far have been “spectacular”, “sensational”, “awesome,” and “incredible.” When you consider that every objection to window film in the past has been aesthetic (too dark, not natural, too shiny), it is no surprise that this clear solar protection should receive such an enthusiastic welcome.

Characteristics match those of clear glass!

The reflectance characteristics of both “HilIte 70″ and the slightly darker “HiLite 40″ match or are actually less than those of clear untreated glass! To the consumer, that means uncompromised views both day and night – in contrast to conventional films whose “roomside” reflection at night can make it difficult or even impossible to see out.

Outstanding Performance and “Premier Plus” Warranty Coverage

The outstanding ratio of visible light transmission (VLT) to total solar energy rejected (TSER) should be reason enough to consider these films for your home. Or, perhaps the fact that these films have been measured and proven to be “carbon negative” appeals to your “green” side. You should also know that HiLite window films are covered by the most expansive warranty in the industry – bar none; “Premier Plus™”!!  That’s a fact! If unsure, ask to do a side-by-side comparison.

And who is the area’s exclusive supplier of Panorama and HiLite films? Solar-X of Sarasota, of course. The company that has been setting the standard for quality products and outstandng workmanship since 1973!

Thirty-seven years in the industry, better products, better warranty. Who else are you gonna call?

Sarasota-Bradenton’s Premier Window Tinting Contractor Makes Client Satisfaction Its Top Priority
