Starbucks- Window Tinting

One-Way Mirror Window Tinting Provides Safety To Starbucks’ Baristas

Window Tinting For Protection In More Than One Way

Have you ever thought about the reason why many restaurant chains will never allow service to be provided to someone who isn’t in a vehicle when they come to a drive-through window? Of course, it could possibly be to prevent liability issues such a vehicle accidentally running down a pedestrian in line. Most of all, the answer boils down to safety of those working for the establishment. Starbucks on the north side of Edmond, Oklahoma took the safety of their baristas one step further with one-way mirror window tinting!

As you have most likely seen on television, a one-way mirror (also known as a two-way mirror) allows viewers from the inside to see perfectly outside while those on the outside only see their reflection. The one-way mirror window tinting film works to turn ordinary glass into this reflective glass in a jiffy.

During the daytime the one-way mirror window tinting film also serves as a great way to protect against the sun’s harsh rays from beaming in on the workers, the merchandise, and the cash register. At night, when safety is even more necessary, the window tinting film allows baristas to see whether unexpected visitors have come to the window while maintaining a level of privacy for the workers inside.

So, next time you’re up on the north side of Edmond grabbing your coffee “to go”, you can think about how much Starbucks values the safety of their baristas! How’s that for awesome?

We love window tinting and all that it can do to protect against UV rays and to keep prying eyes out! We also love helping people achieve the window tinting look that they desire. If you’re looking for one-way mirror film, please feel free to give FormulaOne by AES a call for your next project. We can be reached at 405-513-6400.

Camelot Child Development Protects Children With Window Tinting

Window Tinting For Solar Control

As one might imagine, taking on being a childcare provider is a huge responsibility. It’s not the same as being a parent of just a few children. There are many things to worry about from proper supervision for many children, insurance coverages, investigations to deem the place worthy, providing proper meals, and protecting the children by any means necessary. Most parents nor day care providers would stop to think of protecting their babies from UV rays via window tinting, but the owners of Camelot Child Development did!

In fact, they contacted FormulaOne by AES to determine the best solution for their window tinting needs. The vulnerability of children to the harmful ultraviolet rays was something that had to be greatly considered. In the end it was decided that SolarControl Vista 14 Ultima window tinting film was the best solution for the daycare windows. The benefits of this particular window tinting film are as follows:

  • Rejects up to 79% of solar energy, reducing energy costs, heat build-up, and glare.

Legacy Grill Window Tinting

Legacy Grill’s Decorative Window Tinting Film

Restaurant Decorations With Window Tinting

Have you ever been to a restaurant and looked closely at their choice of décor? While you’re waiting to be seated or waiting for your food chances are you’ve glanced around. The fact is that many restaurants go to great lengths to make their spaces look elegant. Truthfully, many of those same restaurants also spend entirely too much capital getting the look they desire. Many of them may not realize that window tinting can be decorative as well as functional!

Our case in point today is Legacy Grill in OKC (formerly known as KD’s). They wanted something that looked as upscale as possible without having to replace all the glass already in existence. This is the beauty of decorative window tinting.

Of course, for this high-end, contemporary dining space, the restaurant owner didn’t want something cheap that wouldn’t hold up over a long period of time. After some thought on this, the project manager contacted FormulaOne by AES.

Our team members take pride in their work and we take time to listen and help choose the best solution for the windows to ensure a product that lives up to the FormulaOne standard. The meeting resulted in the FormulaOne by AES team coming out to place high-quality LLumar dusted crystal window tinting film onto the restaurant’s inside windows.

As you can imagine, the window tinting film was a fraction of the cost of having to take out every existing window and replace them with real dusted crystal glass. As an added bonus, the window tinting film is very durable and set to last for many years to come.

Each of our window tinting films are individually designed and meticulously crafted to fit perfectly to our customers unique specifications. If you’re looking to add versatile décor to your next custom window project, let us help make your window tinting dreams come true. Contact FormulaOne by AES at 405-513-6400!

Window Tinting- Valentine's Day

New Window Tinting For Valentine’s Day

Falling In Love With Window Tinting

Looking at the bigger picture of life, it’s safe to say that not everyone wants a box of chocolates or a bouquet of roses for Valentine’s Day. Perhaps, what the love of your life really wants is something a little more long-lasting, instead. Is that so wrong? While retailers love to push their traditional gifts upon you, we’d be willing to bet that most of you would be far more impressed with something that’s more meaningful. Window tinting is just one of those gifts that last for years to come and makes looking at and out of your windows so much better.

Imagine telling your significant other that you’re planning on dressing up your home with something as protective as window tinting. Ok, so they may look at you strangely at first and you may not suddenly become a modern version of Shakespeare right before their very eyes, but once you tell them the benefits they may change their minds. There is a perfectly wonderful reason to add window tinting film to your windows.

Our residential window tinting can help keep your carpet, your flooring, and your furniture from fading as a result of the sun’s harsh UV rays. If you want to be able to look outside of your windows without straining your eyes, our film is perfect for your house.

Window Tinting For Arched Windows

FormulaOne Customized Shaped Window Tinting

While the saying goes “never judge a book by it’s cover” it’s a little difficult not to swoon over the front of a building that has been embellished with arched windows. The design of arched windows provides an aesthetically pleasing view that plain rectangular windows just don’t deliver. With these windows you’re sure to have the admirers. There’s just one more decision to make and that entails finding the best compliment to this custom work. Perhaps, window treatments on the inside are a simple enough decision, but what about dressing up the outside of the window with some decorative window tinting? Our window tinting offers a uniquely beautiful design element.

Many people may consider leaving arched window untreated, because they simply aren’t aware of anything that could fit or they don’t know what would be the best fit for the window. Yes, a little natural light is wonderful from time to time, but what about those moments when you need a little less glare? You don’t have to leave the window bare or allow rays of sunlight to stream across your electronic devices.

Perhaps, your arched window design is different than others you have seen? It doesn’t matter if your arched window is actually a half circle window on top of a rectangle window, if it has wall space in between, or if it is one sunburst arch window, because all of them can be fit with any of FormulaOne’s custom designed window tinting. What makes the window tinting unique is that it can not only be gorgeous, but provide functionality in the way of blocking harmful ultraviolet radiation, as well!

At FormulaOne by AES, we are known for our quality products and exceptional installation expertise. We offer top of the line products and quality installation. Every FormulaOne installation is fully-backed by the Nationwide FormulaOne Transferable Lifetime Manufacturer’s Warranty.

Sprucing Up A Church With Window Tinting

Out With The Old And In With The New Window Tinting

As with many other things in life it is an understatement to say that not all window tinting brands are created equally. The truth is that department store brands and lower quality window tinting films aren’t going to last nearly as long as a high quality manufactured products. Luckily, FormulaOne by AES is all about educating and providing our customers with the highest quality products available.

St. Monica Catholic Church in Edmond, OK learned the reality that after some time lower quality brands of window tinting materials lose their ability to hold up under the harsh ultraviolet rays and elements such as rain, snow, and heat. This was evidenced by their old window film which had started to crack and peel, as seen in the above before picture.

Just like Superman coming in to save the day, FormulaOne swooped in to help out! Our team assembled at the church and worked tirelessly to carefully scrape off every last remaining piece of the old window tinting film. This process involved cutting off sections of the tint with a razor blade and making sure to get through the layers without damaging the glass underneath. Then, we proceeded to apply a lovely, new LLumar window film. This particular job consisted of applying a white frost window tinting.

As you can see from the photos, sunlight can still enter through the windows, but now the church’s interior is protected from glares, heat, and ultraviolet rays. The outside appearance of the windows has inevitably improved, as well. We’re thrilled to have been able to be provide something aesthetically pleasing and protective simultaneously.

Do you have a window tinting project of your own in mind? We’d love to be able to help you out. FormulaOne By AES can be reached at 405-513-6400 or by clicking here.

LLumar Window Film UV Shield For Trophy Case

Protecting Trophies With Window Film

When you work so hard every day for something and you receive an award, it’s hard not to want to show it off and be proud. It doesn’t matter if you’re a celebrity, an employee of the month, or you work somewhere that receives awards based on the amount of team effort put forth as everyone can appreciate a trophy. With that being said, if you have a display case to put your trophies in wouldn’t you want to protect that case so that your trophies look as nice as the day you first received them? If so, you’re in luck, because with LLumar window film a project like this is possible!

One of FormulaOne’s past projects, in fact, involved wrapping a glass trophy case with window film at American Fidelity Assurance Company. By adding this window film to the glass it made it possible to eliminate most of the glare and heat from the sun shining through the building’s large glass windows. At the same time that the LLumar window film protects the glass trophy case to in turn protect the trophies placed inside, it also allows for clear visibility from the outside.

This is especially important for a company such as American Fidelity Assurance Company, because they thrive on making a difference and maintaining a great reputation and being able to show off their achievements only adds to their ongoing efforts. Everyone who walks by the large trophy case can peer inside and enjoy seeing the trophies inside, but they don’t have the harsh glare of the sun reflecting back at them or blinding them in the eyes. To keep up with the clean, sharp, ultra modern feel of the office there was no better option.

If you have a glass area that you’d like to be protected from ultraviolet rays, FormulaOne By AES would love the opportunity to make it happen for you. We can be reached at 405-513-6400 or you can contact us online by clicking here.

Vista Window Film Used On Bobby Vinton Blue Velvet Theatre

A Case Study: Dayview V45 Window Film

Branson, Missouri is home to live shows, fun attractions, and exciting excursions for visitors to enjoy. One of the most well-known buildings hosting entertainment for over three million visitors per year is the Bobby Vinton Blue Velvet Theatre. The owner, Bobby Vinton, knew that he had a difficult problem with heat, glare, and fading furnishings inside. As visitors increased over the years the solution of adding window film started to become clear as the owners knew they had to provide a more comfortable, glare-free environment.

There are many types of window film, so it took some careful analysis to determine that the best solution would be the series called Vista Dayview V45. This window film allowed for control of the sunlight which would pour into the theatre without compromising the beauty of the building in any way. The awesome part about this window film addition is that it became a part of the building’s arched windows in 1996 and it’s still going strong!

The installation of the Vista Dayview V45 window film was reported to do the following:

  • Immediately reject 45% of total solar energy
  • Reduced light transmission by 54%
  • Decreased the ultraviolet rays by 99%

Since ultraviolet rays are the main reason for fading floor coverings, interior furnishings, and artwork this transformation meant a lot! Bobby Vinton himself quoted “I could not have arrived at a better solution. My Theatre is now comfortable throughout. Moreover, the film has virtually taken away all the glare from reflecting sunlight and is helping to protect our furnishings and the gift shop merchandise from fading.”

How awesome is that? Do you have a home, office, or precious building that you’d like to preserve with the help of window tinting? FormulaOne by AES is local, we used Vista window film and we offer a lifetime transferable manufacturer’s warranty, too!

January is many things to many people, but more than anything it represents the opportunity to start fresh. Every year resolutions are made to improve upon ways of the past.

A Frank Lloyd Wright House With Vista Window Film

A Case Study: Using Solar Window Film

Were you aware that a large majority of the country’s most remarkable and well-known buildings have windows that were reinforced with Vista solar control window film? Amazingly enough this window film has been proven to stop as much as 75% of the sun’s heat, reducing costly heating and cooling bills. Also, after a detailed study about the environment, Vista solar window film (Vista® VS70) was determined to be the best solution for the Frank Lloyd Wright Louis Penfield House located in Willoughby, Ohio.

Frank Lloyd Wright designed with the intention of creating harmony with the environment and we believe that the Vista window film only helps to preserve this architecture. This particular window film was designed to allow sunlight to shine brightly through the beautiful glass, allowing the light to pour in on the lovely interior while simultaneously keeping the furniture, rugs, and décor from fading.

As the window film works to keep the heat of the sun’s rays out of the Frank Lloyd Wright home, it also allows for an unimpeded view to the outside world around it. This new Vista solar window film will ensure that the renovated Frank Lloyd Wright Penfield House will remain cool and safe from the damaging sun.

FormulaOne by AES is proud to say that we have 41 years of experience in the window tinting and film industry and we’re happy to say that we use the best materials and latest application techniques to complete all customer projects.
