“The Met” Day Spa | Commercial Window Tinting | Sarasota

“The Met” Fashion House, Day Spa, and Salon on St. Armands Circle without question has one of the most beautiful storefront/entries in the entire area. An elegant stairway set between two huge display windows beckons passers-by to come in out of the hot Florida sun and indulge themselves in luxury – whether it be shopping for mens or ladies fashions, or hours of pampering in the day spa.

However; “pampering” isn’t the word that comes to mind when you see what the sun can do to the valuable merchandise displayed in the twelve-foot-tall bay windows at the front of the store! Facing west into the afternoon sun, the heat coming through the glass can quickly ruin everything on display, fading fabrics, and causing discomfort throughout the entire front area of the store. But how do you protect against heat and fading when the ability to see into the display windows is your most important sales asset?

If you are the management at The Met, you call Solar-X of Sarasota! We were able to give them just what they needed –  a nearly undetectable window film that would reduce heat and virtually eliminate the ultraviolet light coming through the windows – without any loss of ability to see the displays, and no color change. Goods that would typically have to be written off due to damage are able to be sold without loss. Despite the challenges posed by the confined space within the display windows, our experienced installation craftsmen were able to apply the film at a quality level that is second to none, and without any disruption of normal store routine – something that is always appreciated by management personnel!

If you have a retail business where fading and sun damage is a serious issue, but you simply must have uncompromised display capability, Solar-X of Sarasota has a complete line of extraordinary products for you. And; as always those products will be installed with unrivaled quality and attention to detail by the area’s most experienced installation craftsmen. Contact Solar-X today for a free consultation if you’re getting tired of losing valuable merchandise to damage from our hot Florida sun. We’ll put our 40 years of industry experience to work protecting your valuable goods, storefront and office space. You’ll like our quick delivery, too – because when it comes to fading; time is money! Serving the Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota, and Venice area since 1973. Rated “A+” by the Better Business Bureau.

Low Awareness – High Acceptance? | Window Films and Tinting

Window Film dealer sarasota FloridaWindow film is oftentimes accurately described as a product that has “low customer awareness; but high customer acceptance.” Put another way; many people don’t know much about window film. Therefore, they don’t think about it as a solution to their comfort issues when heat intrusion, glare, and fading of furnishings compromise their lifestyle. However; once they are made aware of all the things this unique  product can do to create a comfortable interior environment while protecting furnishings, flooring, and artwork from fading – or providing an elevated level of protection from breakage or impact – they are quick to accept window film as a product they would like to purchase in order to enhance their quality of life. 

High quality window films such as SolarGard®, Panorama®, and Armorcoat® have high customer acceptance because of their ability to eliminate “hot spots” near windows and glass doors; providing uniform comfort throughout your living space while allowing natural light to stream in and enhance your overall environment. Not only are your prized possessions protected from fading, but your skin is shielded from the premature aging or even skin cancer caused by dangerous ultraviolet light. Protection from cutting and piercing injuries – or even dangerous flying glass shards – is enhanced; giving you peace of mind.

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

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.

Increased Comfort: 
Sun control film reduces up to 82% of the sun’s heat from coming through your windows.

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.

Protecting Your Interior Environment | Window Tinting

Everyone loves a bright, “airy” home. Large glass areas let in plenty of light and impart a feeling of well-being that creates a haven to be enjoyed by the whole family. But those sunny areas can also let in too much heat, glare, and harmful ultraviolet light. Heat; of course, creates discomfort and “hot spots” near windows, as well as overloading air conditioning systems and making your utility bills skyrocket. Glare can ruin your viewing pleasure, hurt your eyes, and affect your ability to see your TV or computer screen. Ultraviolet light is even more insidious. It causes fading of drapes, carpeting, artwork, hardwood floors – everything that makes your home…your home! It also causes skin cancer, premature aging, and damage to the eyes. And wherever you have visible light coming through your windows, you have invisble – ultraviolet – light, coming in with it.

All of these issues can be addressed with one affordable installation of high quality SolarGard® or Panorama® window film. Available in a number of colors and densities, these tested and proven products will reduce up to 82% of the unwanted heat entering your windows, providing a uniform, stable comfort condition that keeps your home cooler and eliminates eye-watering glare. An amazing SPF Factor of 285+ will protect you, your home, and your family from the harmful effects of ultraviolet light. SolarGard® and Panorama®  films can lower your utility bills by 30% and more; and they are “carbon-negative” – so while you are saving money and protecting your family, you are also doing something good for the environment.

Solar-X of Sarasota has been helping area residents improve the quality of their interior environment for nearly four decades; bringing comfort and safety to thousands of homes. We can help you decide which film best suits your needs and fits your overall lifestyle. Our factory-trained, experienced installation craftsmen will install your window film with unmatched attention to detail; ensuring your total satisfaction. And you’ll feel better knowing that your home and family’s well-being are protected.  Contact Solar-X today!

May Is “Ultraviolet Awareness Month” | Window Tinting

Sometimes Painful. Potentially Fatal. Never Underestimate UV ‘s Dangers!

May is “Ultraviolet Awareness Month;” and as residents of the “Sunshine State” we would be foolish if we weren’t aware of the dangers associated with this part of the light spectrum. UVA causes premature aging and wrinkling of your skin. UVB causes sunburn and skin cancer. UVC is the most dangerous, but thankfully; is almost entirely absorbed by the ozone layer.

Ultraviolet can contribute to cataracts, Macular Degeneration, and other eyesight woes. UV destroys things through a process called “photodissociation;” which breaks down molecules in fabric and causes fading of furniture. The same process destroys tissues, causes skin cancer, and contributes to eye injuries. That’s why we wear “sun block,” sunglasses and hats when we venture outdoors for the day.

It is also why people install sun control window films such as SolarGard® and Panorama®. These quality films protect your interior furnishings, drapes, carpets and flooring, and your family by stopping 99% of the harmful UV with an SPF factor of over 285+!  What is the SPF factor of your sunscreen?

For almost 40 years, we at Solar-X of Sarasota have been talking to clients about window film’s ability to keep homes and offices cooler, make occupants more comfortable, and reduce energy consumption. But more importantly, window film can contibute to your family’s well being by protecting them from the intrusion of UV into your home. SolarGard® and Panorama® films are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation for this reason. SolarGard® is once again proud to be a sponsor of this year’s “Road To Healthy Skin Tour;” an educational and cancer screening cross-country tour coming soon to a town near you.

Contact Solar-X today!  “A Better Environment – Inside and Out” is not just an empty slogan to us. Expect – and get – the very best, from Solar-X of Sarasota. Since 1973.

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!
