Decorative Films, Custom Glass Art | Solar-X of Sarasota

Summer Cove 2Decorative films and custom graphics are something that can make your home or office space unique. You can customize your interior environment with any number of things. “Off the shelf” decorative films are easily applied to windows, mirrors, shower doors, and front entries. Custom fabricated images that look like expensive etched glass can done in geometric patterns, or images that match your sense of style; whether they are flowers, birds, or nature scenes. Finally, virtually any image can be printed on clear film, and applied to glass! There no limits to the things that you can do!

People passing by can see right into your home through the glass front doors and sidelights. How about that big window over the tub in the master bath? Frosted and decorative films can give you a sense of privacy (and security) without losing light! So much more practical than window treatments that flop around every time you open the door – and so much more “eye-popping!”

Add a whole new look at the office; starting with a custom crafted logo on the entry. Or, add a privacy factor to glass partitions,  interior conference room panels and training areas where outside distractions are unwanted. The look is clean, uncluttered, and all business! It can be achieved at a fraction of the cost of actual etched glass. Best of all, it can be done with no muss and no fuss. Etching can be a real hassle – the mess of sandblasting, taking the glass out and replacing it after it is done – but frosted films can be applied quickly and without any disruption! Any fabrication is done at our facility and not where you conduct business.  Before you know it, the look of your office has been fundamentally changed!

A Cool New Office For Ackerman Plumbing | Window Tinting

Ackerman Plumbing SarasotaEven before Ackerman Plumbing moved into their new location at Whitfield Park Loop, they knew they were going to have to do something about reducing the heat that was pouring through the sixteen foot tall windows on the East and South side of their building. The windows  let in a wonderful amount of light; but in order to function as a comfortable and productive space, management decided they had to get pricing on installing window film. They were hoping that window film could reduce the heat input  and still preserve the pleasing effect of the large and airy window area.

Several window film contractors were called, and after careful consideration, Solar-X of Sarasota was chosen to install SolarGard® “Silver 20™” window film. Solar-X has been providing expert commercial installation to our clients for nearly forty years; and Silver 20™ is the classic “workhorse” window film.  No frills;  high performance – stopping 79% of the sun’s heat, glare, and 99% of the harmful ultraviolet light. The attractive, softly reflective appearance modernizes the building, providing daytime privacy and a uniform architectural appearance.

Another pressing concern was coordinating all the trades that had to refurbish the office space prior to moving in. Solar-X has a proven track record of working with clients to make sure that their work is completed on time, every time. And even though there were some delays that forced us to reschedule our original installation date, we were still able to get in and complete our work in plenty of time for the “move-in.”

Now, the interior space is not only comfortable, it is fully usable right up to the windows. The softly reflective surface of the film adds to the overall appearance of the building. Most importantly, Ackerman Plumbing is saving “about $100.00 per month”  on their utility bills, based on what the former tenants were paying. That puts the payoff period at about two and a half years. Comfort and Savings is what we at Solar-X do best!
