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!

“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.

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.

Window Film – The Best “Toolbox” Product For Problem Windows

Windows are so ubiquitous in our homes and workplaces that we seldom think about their effect on our daily lives. But there is a “duality” to windows in terms of how they affect our interior environment. On one hand, they let in light, provide enjoyable views, impart a feeling of well-being, and increase productivity. On the other hand, they let in excessive heat, bothersome glare, and dangerous UV light. They also present a safety issue in the case of accidental contact, and a security issue relative to burglary, explosions, violent weather, and earthquakes.

Homeowners and Facilty Managers alike seek to increase the comfort of their homes or buildings while reducing their utlity bills. They want to minimize annoying glare while preserving their views. They want to protect their homes and work environments from the harmful effects of ultraviolet light, and they certainly want to provide an environment that is safe from the dangers of accidents or flying glass.  

The only way they can accomplish all those objectives without “breaking the bank” is through the use of a multi-faceted “toolbox” product; and that product is efficient, affordable window film.  Quality products such as SolarGard®, Panorama®, and SolarGard® “Armorcoat™” can stop up to 82% of the sun’s heat and glare. They can provide protection against interior fading, premature aging, and skin cancer by eliminating 99%+ of the ultraviolet light. The proven performance of Armorcoat™ Safety and Security Film puts fears to rest regarding accidents, flying glass, or other security issues. And finally, window film can be installed with a minimum of disruption or “down time” – allowing for business as usual throughout the entire process.

Solar-X of Sarasota has been providing the safety and comfort of these quality window films  to area home and business owners for over 38 years! Our unrivaled product knowledge and extensive training allows us to ascertain the best product for each building’s unique needs; and our experienced installation craftsmen will carefully and efficiently see your job through to completion.
