Consumers facing sun related problems here in Tampa Bay are much more educated about window film solutions, thanks to the internet.
Before focusing on any specific window film brand or installation company; they ask whether the solution works, whether it solves the problem at hand?
The critical issues window film resolves are briefly:
- Heat gain in your living spaces.Rooms overheating that creates discomfort, increased cooling usage and costs and an imbalance between hot and cooler areas of your home or office.
- Discomforting glare that makes watching TV or working on computers difficult by creating eye strain.
- Faded furnishings, wood floors, artwork and any fabrics that are damaged by sunlight and UV.
- Shatter protection from flying debris or forced entry protection against burglary impact.
- Privacy concerns from the exterior of the home or business.

Our trusted technologies limit heat by as much as 85%.
The amount of heat filtered is based upon various factors including the light transmission, reflectivity, solar absorption and IR heat capabilities of the coating.
UV rejection is 99.9% for most of the film selections and the capacity to maintain a high level of UV filtration remains consistent for years.
Glare control has a direct correlation to the visible light transmission with darker VLT’s having a greater influence on lower glare outcome.
