IMG’s Pendleton School Cuts Glare With Panorama Window Film

Few –  if  any – sports training academies can boast the roster of famous alumni/atheletes that IMG Academies in Bradenton, Florida can. Andre Agassi, Maria Sharapova, Venus and Serena Williams, Paula Creamer – the list goes on and on! And many younger atheletes who train at the superb facilities attend the Pendleton School, located right on the campus. It’s a beautiful modern building, with large windows that let in plenty of light…

…In many ways, too much light! Even with modern shading devices over the windows, a number of teachers were forced to put up cardboard to keep the light out; especially when using the many overhead projectors and other media devices that are regularly used in class. Not wanting to completely block the view with unsightly, dust-catching blinds, the school’s Headmaster thought that window film might be the perfect solution to cut excessive light from entering the East, South, and West-facing classrooms.

Solar-X of Sarasota has a long history of working with IMG Academies installing both sun control film as well as custom made logos and glass imaging. A consultation with the Headmaster led to a test installation of Panorama® “Slate 10™” dual-reflective window film to ensure that the  film would meet all the school’s needs.  It was an immediate hit. The appearance both inside and out was exactly what they wanted. The resulting light level was perfect for media presentations in the classrooms without additional room-darkening shades or blinds; and the film stopped 79% of the sun’s heat from entering through the windows – an extra bonus that is keeping the classrooms cooler and saving energy. The one day installation was done on a Saturday, so there was no disruption to classroom routine.

IMG Academies is just one example of the ongoing relationships we have with many clients. Architects, contractors, interior designers, assisted living facilities – and many others with ongoing needs –  all know that they can count on Solar-X of Sarasota for prompt professional consultation and service.  They know we’ll recommend the right film for any job, and we’ll install it with care and attention to detail that is second to none.

The “Smart” New Year’s Resolution | Window Film and Tinting

Here’s a possible New Year’s resolution that’s easier to keep than quitting smoking or going on a diet. Make 2012 the year that you take control of your interior environment, and install some quality window film such as SolarGard®, Panorama®, or Armorcoat® Safety and Security Film. No other product can give you so many benefits for one affordable price.


Increased Comfort: 
Sun control film reduces up to 82% of the sun’s heat from coming through your windows. It eliminates “hot spots” near your windows and glass doors and creates a uniform comfort condition throughout your home. No more closed draperies and blinds! Let natural light in and at the same time, enjoy the view!

Increased Safety:  Safety and Security films add an elevated level of protection from unexpected or accidental impact; keeping your family safe from dangerous shards of broken glass. Safety films also provide a significant deterrent to would-be burglars who are looking for a quick, quiet entry in and out of your home. And safety films come in both “clear,” and “sun control” versions that will keep heat out as well!

Reduce Fading:  All window films stop better than 99% of the sun’s dangerous UV light; the single strongest source of interior fading, as well as the agent for premature aging of skin and even skin cancer. An SPF factor of 285+ means incredible protection for your family as well as your furnishings.

Window Film Saves Money:  By reducing heat input into your home, window film cuts energy consumption; lowering your utility bills, and reducing your carbon footprint – paying for itself in a surprisingly short time!

Energy Conservation: Saving Money Or Saving The World? | Window Tinting

Taking A Serious Look At Window Film And What It Can Achieve…

When the topic of saving energy comes up, people almost immediately take one of two sides. One side wants to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and take action against global warming. The other side says, “I just want to save money!” We at Solar-X take the approach that; no matter what the motivation is, if we all take action to save energy, we’ll all get to the same place!

For those of you who take the more ecologically sensitive side, here are a few tidbits about SolarGard® and Panorama® window tinting products that may surprise you; and perhaps give you a sense of respect for these top quality energy-saving films:

  1. SolarGard® and Panorama® sun control films are the only brand name window films that have been measured and certified to be carbon-negative.
  2. They are the first U.S. manufactured building improvement products to achieve a Climate Declaration, verifying that they are carbon-negative.
  3. The “carbon cost” to manufacture one square meter of SolarGard® or Panorama® window film is less than one kilogram.  A low-e wood frame window of the same size has a carbon cost of 253 kilograms!
  4. Over a projected useful life of 15 years (global average), SolarGard® and Panorama® sun control films will save 1001 times more greenhouse gas emissions from entering the atmosphere than those expended during its manufacture.

For those of you who are mostly interested in saving money, try these facts:

  1. Applying SolarGard® and Panorama® films to your windows has been shown to reduce your energy use by up to 30%.
  2. SolarGard® and Panorama® sun control films deliver 6.6 times more energy savings per dollar invested than high performance, low-e glass replacement windows across all climate zones.

We could cite fact after fact, but the truth about these quality window tinting products is this. They save money. They reduce greenhouse gas emissions. They also make your environment cooler and more comfortable. They reduce harmful ultraviolet light and fading with an SPF factor of 285+! And many of these products are virtually undetectable once installed. Contact Solar-X today for a free, no-obligation consultation, and start saving money and  the environment at the same time! We’ve been helping people from Palmetto to Port Charlotte do both since 1973…
