So Many Benefits In One Product! | Sarasota Window Tinting

Window film is such a well known product in Florida, that it’s easy to forget that there are people out there who have never heard of it; nor are they familiar with benefits that this easily affordable product provides! So occasionally, it’s constructive to tell potential clients what window film is, and what it does…

Window film is a specially coated polyester material that is applied directly to the surface of residential and commercial windows. Most clients choose to install film for the following benefits:

Window film reduces heat gain; increases comfort: When sunlight enters through your windows, it can really wreak havoc; causing “hot spots” near windows, and making some areas almost unlivable. Closing drapes and blinds won’t help – the heat is already through the glass! A quality window film such as SolarGard®, or Panorama® will allow natural light to stream in without annoying glare and discomfort; reducing heat gain by up to 82%.

Window film protects you and your home from UV damage: Ultraviolet light ruins drapes, carpet, furnishings and artwork, and causes irreparable harm to your skin and eyes! Window film stops better than 99% of UVA and UVB rays, protecting against premature aging of skin and eyes; all while saving your valuable furnishings and art!

Window film saves energy: By reflecting as much as 82% of the sun’s heat, window film can reduce your cooling costs by 30% and more – all while maintaining a uniform “comfort condition” within your home.

Window film makes glass safer: Add an extra level of security with Armorcoat® Safety and Security Film; in “Clear” or “Sun Control.”  Armorcoat® helps hold lethal glass fragments in place if your your windows are impacted, protecting you, your family, and your pets from the piercing and cutting injuries that so often occur when glass is broken.

Decorative Films: Add a “designer touch” to windows, entry doors, shower enclosures – anywhere! With textured, patterned or embossed decorative films, there is no limit to what you can do. Enhance the appearance of problematic window areas to give your interior environment a “one-of-a kind” look that is uniquely you!

Think You’re Safe From UV Light Indoors? Think again…

For forty years, Solar-X of Sarasota has been installing window film for clients whose main concern is protecting their drapes, carpets, and furnishings from sun fading. Every one of those clients knows that the single strongest source of fading is ultraviolet light; yet it is truly surprising how few make the connection between ultraviolet light, and the fact that – even indoors – they are subject to premature aging of skin and skin cancer, as well eye damage. Every hour that your windows admit visible light (daylight), they are admitting invisible light (ultraviolet). If it can damage your furnishings, it can surely damage your skin and eyes – even indoors!

As thousands of Baby Boomers move to Florida and settle into the “retirement” lifestyle, they would be  well advised to consider an application of SolarGard® sun control film for their home windows. SolarGard® films block 99% of the harmful ultraviolet rays that otherwise pass right through glass. For that reason, SolarGard® window films are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation; and many dermatologists recommend window film to their clients. Window films don’t need to be “dark” to block all the UV, so you can fill your home with beautiful, natural daylight and still protect your skin and your eyes from cataracts and the damage that comes from long term exposure to ultraviolet light. Many of today’s window films are virtually undetectable while still reducing substantial amounts of heat and glare; so you will be creating a more comfortable interior environment, without compromising your views or interior light levels.

SolarGard® window films come in many different densities and appearances to suit individual tastes. Installation is quick and very affordable, so contact Solar-X of Sarasota today, and let us protect both you and your home from damaging ultraviolet light. Our experienced installation craftsmen will install your window film with attention to detail and the pride that comes from being “the area’s premier window film contractor since 1973.” Solar-X of Sarasota is rated “A+” by the Better Business Bureau.

What Happened While You Were Gone? | Window Film and Fading

There’s nothing like coming down to your winter home in Florida for the Holidays. Have some fun, soak up some “rays;” get a tan that will have everyone back home talking for weeks!

But while you’ve been gone, the same “rays” that you’ve been looking forward to tanning with have ruined your drapes and the exposed flooring behind them! How could it happen so fast?

It can save up to 30% and more on your utility bills, and its performance is certifed by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC).

Wood Floors Never Die – They Just Fade Away|Sarasota Window Tinting

Sunlight, Heat, and Ultraviolet Ruin All Types of Flooring and Furnishings

Protect Your Home or Office From FadingIt happens all the time. The sun pours through your windows, streaming over all your furnishings and flooring; adding  light to every room of your home. That’s the beauty of living in Florida, right? Until one day you realize that the hardwood floor that you paid so much for isn’t the same color as it used to be. It’s milky and faded. You lift up the edge of an area rug, and there it is! – you can see the outline of the rug clearly on the floor! Under the rug is half again as dark as the exposed floor! Next you flip over a cushion on your prized sofa, and – guess what? – the colors on the bottom of the cushion are twice as bright as the colors on top!

Protect Your Prized Possessions With Window Film

By reducing sunlight, heat, and virtually eliminating Ultraviolet with an SPF Factor of 285, window film can substantially reduce the damage and heartbreak of faded furnishings, artwork, and flooring. And film doesn’t have to be “dark” or “mirrored” in order to be effective.  Many of our films are very light and non-reflective; in fact one film – Panorama® “HiLite™”  – is virtually clear; leaving your day and night views uncompromised, and still preserving the “sunny” feel to your rooms that you love so much.

Act Now! Before It’s Too Late…

When you let visible light into your home, you are also letting in invisible light – Ultraviolet – at the same time! That’s why fading is always a problem. Window film can’t undo damage that’s already done. But you can certainly slow down further damage; protecting those items that are not already harmed – or your recently replaced flooring and sofa! – by installing one of our quality window film products on the windows of your home. And protect your own skin while you’re at it! Many of our films are endorsed by The Skin Cancer Foundation.

Florida’s sun is brutal. Don’t wait any longer to protect yourself, your home, and your family. Call Solar-X today. Nearly four decades of service to residential and commercial clients in Bradenton, Sarasota, Venice, and surrounding communities… We must be doing something right!
