Keeping Florida Cool | Window Film and Tinting

ConquistadorsIt’s hard to believe that on April 2, 1513 – 498 years ago! – Ponce de Leon stepped ashore on an empty beach and claimed what he called “La Florida” for the King of Spain. He called it “an uninhabitable sandspit,” even though there were quite a few perfectly happy indians living here at the time. Ever since then, people have been wanting to move to Florida; despite having to put up with the misery of the hot summer temperatures, and the dangers of the summer storm season.

Today, SolarGard® and Panorama® window films can reduce the effect of our hot summer temperatures; making your home cooler and more comfortable – without “hot spots” and without darkening the rooms. And Armorcoat™ Safety and Security window films can add an astonishing level of protection against the devastating effects of shattered glass and high winds. SolarGard® and Panorama® films reflect the sun’s heat away from your home or office windows; saving a large portion of the energy required to cool the interior spaces and reducing energy costs –  while adding a level of comfort that you wouldn’t believe possible. Armorcoat™ Safety Film can not only save on energy, it can provide impressive protection from cutting and piercing injuries due to accidental contact, or impact from the flying debris associated with high winds and violent weather. Armorcoat™ also deters forced entry with its incredible tensile strength. And all three product lines protect you, your family, and your furnishings from the harmful effects of ultraviolet light by stopping more than 99% of it with an SPF Factor of 285+!
