It’s All About Providing Solutions | Residential and Commercial Window Tinting


The best service that a business can provide for any client is an effective solution to whatever “problem” that client may bring to them.  At Solar-X of Sarasota, our clients – both residential and commercial – typically share the problems of  discomfort due to excessive heat intrusion; uncontrollable glare, or concerns with harmful ultraviolet light. Yet, different circumstances in each instance – customer likes and dislikes, color, density, appearance, and priorities –  dictate the use of different window film products; and it is our extensive knowledge of those products – and the solutions they provide – that has elevated Solar-X above so many competitors.

Clients are interested in product types only insofar as they provide the best solution to their concerns. It is our job at Solar-X to deal with the details – balancing perfomance with appearance, light levels, and appropriate film-to-glass combinations; to list a few – and after careful consideration, present the client with the best possible solution for their needs and objectives.

Our residential clients are consistently delighted with the comfort, appearance, and protection solutions suggested by our sales professionals. Commercial clients benefit from “value added”  services; such as proprietary building model software – energy modeling tools that will provide accurate energy savings information – and help with LEED credits, utility rebates, and tax credits. In short, we provide everything the client needs for an effective solution to their energy and comfort problems.

Positively Impacting Lives and Saving Energy | Window Tinting

The “Swiss Army Knife” of home improvement products…

Swiss Army KnifeEveryone knows that when you buy a Swiss Army Knife you are buying an entire survival kit. You get a file, saw, screwdriver, toothpick, tweezers, scissors, a corkscrew and a can opener – it truly is a superb product!

Buying a quality window film such as SolarGard®, Panorama®, or Armorcoat™ is no different. These incredible products reduce heat, glare, and fading. They save you money. They protect you and your family from broken glass due to storms or accidental contact. They deter burglary. They protect your skin from dangerous ultraviolet exposure and possible skin cancer with an SPF Factor of 285+! They make you more comfortable. Some keep you cooler in the summer and warmer in winter. If you live near the beach, many comply with “turtle lighting codes.” Some protect glass surfaces from graffiti artists and vandals who mar glass with acid…

But you don’t need to order a seperate window film for each purpose mentioned here. Most window films do everything listed above – in one product!  And that doesn’t come close to completing the list of tangible benefits derived from that one product. Window film is truly affordable when you consider its cost versus a complete window replacement – if you are concerned about the environment, think of the impact of a whole house worth of old windows in a landfill… Window film will pay for itself in short order by reducing your energy consumption and your utility bills. It is quickly and easily installed, and will improve your interior environment from the moment you say, “Goodbye” to our installation crew.

Discerning home and business owners from Ellenton to Englewood know that they can trust Solar-X of Sarasota to provide them with the best products and quality installation services for their projects. We’ll help you select just the right film to maximize your “list of benefits” with just the right “eye appeal”  – and at the right price. Contact Solar-X today!

Facility Managers Work Toward Sustainability | Commercial Window Film and Tinting

A Leading Source Of Greenhouse Gas Emissions…

Commercial buildings are one of the most significant consumers of energy, and produce 39% of total CO2 emissions. That’s why the vast majority of facility managers are striving towards making their buildings more sustainable. Solar-X of Sarasota is here to help; with quality SolarGard® and Panorama® window films that can assist in achieving that goal. Here’s why:

Windows in an office building are responsible for most of the environmental woes within that structure. Unchecked heat intrusion makes the areas near the windows uninhabitable for just about anyone working near them. “Hot spots” and unstable temperature conditions make the interior environment miserable. One side of the building feels like a meat locker, the other side feels like an oven. Window film can stabilize those temperatures, and keep comfort demands more manageable by stopping up to 82% of the sun’s heat – balancing heat loads and reducing the peak energy usage that costs so much.

Harmful UV rays are another source of worry. Protecting office workers from the harmful effects of ultraviolet can reduce incidences of skin cancer, and harmful effects on the eyes. SolarGard® and Panorama® films stop 99% of the ultraviolet with an SPF factor of better than 285! And the reduction in glare makes it so much easier to see computer screens that productivity is actually increased! For those with a low tolerance for sunlight and UV, window film represents the perfect protection. In fact, many of our films are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.

Physical safety of building occupants can be just as important to facility managers as their comfort. In today’s uncertain world you never know when or where someone may commit the next act of violence. Armorcoat™ Safety and Security Window Films retain glass fragments, and hold them in place after impact, explosion, or the high winds associated with violent storms; protecting against cutting and piercing injuries that are part of these events. And because Armorcoat™ is available in “sun control” densities, the use of these superb products can be easily interfaced with any planned energy saving measures.

Immediate energy savings. Increased comfort. Reduced carbon footprint. UV protection. Personal Safety. All these features rolled into one product that can easily be installed; quickly and with little or no disruption in office routine. These products qualify for LEED credits is six different categories! And Solar-X can help you save more with utlility rebates and incentives!

Solar-X of Sarasota can assist your planning with building models and technical services that will accurately pinpoint savings and projected ROI’s. We can help you choose the most efficient products in order to achieve those goals. Contact Solar-X today for a thorough, professional consultation and let us assist you in gathering the information you need to implement your energy saving plans. Whether your facility is located in Bradenton, Sarasota, Venice, or you need our contracting services statewide, we’re here to help!

Hot weather’s On The Way! Start Saving Now | Window Film and Tinting

Summer Heat WaveSummer coming to Florida is as subtle as a brick through a plate glass window. Spring seems to last only days, and then the furnace door opens. Heat comes pouring through your windows and glass doors like a blow torch; causing discomfort, “hot spots,” fading, and sending utility bills through the roof!

Why put up with that? There’s no law that says you have to suffer through Florida’s summer heat! An affordable application of quality window film such as SolarGard® or Panorama® will put an end to discomfort instantly! By reflecting up to 82% of the sun’s heat and glare, these eco-friendly, “carbon-negative” window films will make your interior spaces uniformly cooler, more comfortable, and easier on the eyes. Stopping 99% of the harmful ultraviolet rays will reduce fading of carpeting, drapes, and furnishings.  And the reduction in energy consumed will substantially lower your utility bills – by up to 30%!

You can protect your home and family further with an application of Armorcoat™ “Safety and Security” sun control film. Four times thicker than regular sun control film, Armorcoat™ keeps glass in place after impact from violent weather or accidental contact, and provides a significant deterrent to possible burglary by making it much harder (and noisier) to gain entry.

Performance-certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), these easily affordable products – installed by Solar-X of Sarasota – will help you get through this summer in comfort and safety. Check out our Savings Specials, and then contact Solar-X of Sarasota for a free estimate anywhere from Ellenton to Englewood; or Longboat Key to Lakewood Ranch.

“Green” Awareness Brings Window Tinting “Full Circle” | Window Film

Clients’ Desire To Save Energy, Cut Carbon Emissions, Takes Window Tinting “Back To Basics”

Building "Green"When Solar-X of Sarasota opened in 1973, we found ourselves trying to conduct business in the midst of the OPEC oil embargo. People were vitally interested in conserving energy then, and Solar-X had the products that could help them. While peoples’ motivations for buying window film and tinting products have occasionally shifted, today everything seems to have come full circle.

For years, people were motivated by the increased comfort window films offered, or the often-touted protection against fading of furnishings. Hurricane Charley’s landfall on the Gulf Coast focused peoples’ attention on Safety and Security films. But with ever-rising energy costs, and a desire to reduce their “carbon footprint,” people are returning to basics. Window film reduces heat intrusion into your home. Reducing your energy consumption by installing window film reduces carbon emissions and saves you money.

Surprisingly, very little attention is given to window film products on “green” websites. That’s about to change. Most green websites tend to stress caulking or sealing around the edges of windows, or expensive window replacements. But window films like SolarGard® and Panorama® offer a better return on investment than low-e glass units. They are less expensive than new windows, they have lower “carbon costs” in manufacture, and, in fact; SolarGard® and Panorama® films are the only brands proven to be “carbon-negative.”  And when windows are perfectly serviceable, an affordable application of quality window film such as SolarGard® and Panorama® might be all you need to save substantial amounts of energy – not to mention saving up to 30% on  your utility bills.

Solar-X of Sarasota is the area’s largest SolarGard® dealer and the exclusive installer of Panorama® window films. All Panorama® films are backed by the Premier Plus® warranty; the longest warranty available anywhere in the film industry.

If you live in Sarasota, Bradenton, Venice, or the surrounding area, contact Solar-X today to get the full story on our eco-friendly products – and start saving before summer’s hot weather gets here!

Electric bills and temperatures skyrocket, but an affordable application of quality SolarGard® or Panorama® window film will bring them both back under control. “Hot spots” are eliminated, and the overall interior environment is stabilized. An SPF factor of 285+ reduces sun damage and  ultraviolet fading of furnishings, carpet, and expensive window treatments.  Perhaps you are interested in protection from burglary or violent summer storms. An installation of super-strong Armorcoat™ Safety and Security film can add a level of protection against forced entry or high winds and flying debris – keeping your glass in place when broken – protecting your home from excessive damage, and your family from injury.

A Practical Way To Go “Green” | Window Film and Tinting | Sarasota

Many homeowners; when asked if they consider the environmental impact of products they purchase for their home, affirm that they do, indeed; take that into consideration. In fact, there are homeowners that embark on major remodeling projects who will not purchase a single product for that project until they know everything about that product’s environmental “pedigree.”

We’re not talking about questions like, “Does it save energy?” That’s easy! We’re talking about concerns like, “Where did it come from? How is it made? What were the ‘carbon costs’ involved in manufacturing this product? What is the environmental impact on disposal?” In other words, the “up front” environmental costs, to them; are just as important as sustainability and performance after the product has been installed!

When it comes to window film products, only the manufacturer of SolarGard® and Panorama® sun control films can definitively answer those questions. That’s because SolarGard® and Panorama® films are the only window films to have undergone a complete “life cycle analysis” and have a published Environmental Product Declaration which conclusively proves that these industry-leading products are, in fact; “carbon negative.” SolarGard® and Panorama® films have positioned themselves as environmental leaders in our industry because sustainability is a core principle of the manufacturer – right down to the environmentally friendly packaging of the products.

SolarGard® and Panorama® films provide a practical way to “go green;” with truly affordable products that can lower your electric bill from the day the film is installed. Enjoy increased comfort, a stable interior environment, protection from harmful ultraviolet light – and get all that from a product that has been manufactured with the protection of the environment as its top priority.NEW Carbon Neg Seal

“Carbon-Negative” Window Films | Performance With A Conscience

Environmental Consciousness Is At An All Time High

You don’t have to scratch too far beneath the surface to find a lot of environmental angst right now among Gulf Coast residents. But  beyond that – in fact, nationally and globally – more and more consumers are making their buying decisions based on their environmental and social values. Similar actions are being taken by energy savvy corporate specifiers and purchasing agents who are making environmental sustainability the bedrock of their buying philosophy.

It is no longer enough to just say that the products we sell save energy. We represent a  manufacturer – Bekaert Specialty Films – that has taken the unprecedented step of proving that their products save more energy than it took to produce them. They are Carbon Negative! Bekaert manufactures the only two window film brands available today who can truly make this claim – SolarGard® and Panorama® – and Solar-X of Sarasota proudly sells both!

Bekaert is the first and only window film manufacturer to…
•  Measure and publish the carbon footprint of their products.
•  Obtain a Climate Declaration
•  Certify its own carbon footprint
•  Be awarded the title of Climate Action Leader

Solar-X of Sarasota is proud to be partnered with a manufacturing company that has such a strong commitment to environmental stewardship. Call us today for a presentation of SolarGard® or Panorama® window film, and see how “performance with a conscience” can help keep your home cooler and more comfortable while helping preserve the environment.

SolarGard, Panorama Window Films Cut Carbon Emissions Worldwide

Putting Their Money Where Their Mouth Is | Bekaert Films Are “Carbon Negative”

“Bekaert Specialty Films today announced its flagship SolarGard® and elite Panorama® architectural solar control window films produce a net reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. They are the first building improvement products made in the U.S. to measure and report their carbon footprint. By reducing the amount of energy used to cool commercial buildings and homes, SolarGard and Panorama window films help decrease carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere and help achieve zero energy building goals.”
– Bekaert press release, dated May 19, 2010

For full details, visit

The information gleaned from this report is truly stunning. For example:

• [On a global average]  “SolarGard Window Film saves 1001 times more GHG emissions from entering the atmosphere than is used and/or created during its manufacture.”
– Bekaert press release, dated May 19, 2010

As the first window film manufacturer to have its own carbon footprint measured and certified, and earning the title of “Climate Action Leader”, Bekaert has taken their environmental commitment one step further by measuring their products and reporting  the findings in their Climate Declaration; putting themselves “light years” ahead of competitive manufacturers who have not seen fit to even begin the process!

“Window Film?”, or “Window Replacement?”

Those interested in environmentally conscious products and sustainable design now have another reason to take a good hard look at a quality window film like SolarGard or Panorama. Window replacement is not always the “greener” option if your windows are well constructed, well sealed, and otherwise serviceable; but not designed to reject heat intrusion and ultraviolet light – and window film is a lot more affordable!

Solar-X of Sarasota is proud to represent the full line of Bekaert Films; including SolarGard®, Armorcoat®, and especially as the Sarasota area’s exclusive Panorama® window film installing contractor.
