This first one is a simple design that can go in any home. Placed in a bathroom this kind of tinting can grant a good deal of privacy while still allowing lots of natural light to come in and light your bathroom. The modern design can fit well in any home while simultaneously adding a great amount of character to your home. The window tinting can stretch the length of the window, not just the frosted parts, so you don’t need to worry about your bathroom receiving uneven exposure from UV and IR rays.

Frosted shower doors like this one are a great way to add some modern flair to a bathroom. In addition, they provide that extra little bit of privacy to make shower time more enjoyable. The other big benefit is the extra protection from shattered glass. Window tinting can help keep glass from shattering. It will crack, but it won’t shatter. Which is a nice, since you probably don’t want broken glass where you shower!

Similar to the first photo, this frosted glass look gives your shower a good amount of privacy while also letting natural light stream in. Again, the slick modern design will go well in any home. This doesn’t have to be for a shower either, imagine an office conference room with these doors.

Window Tinting as a safety measure?

Window Tinting can help cool your home but could it also protect you in other ways?

Well, in a way, yes. Window tints and film mostly help protect you by strengthening the glass panes and reducing the chances of shattering. Window tinting and films are applied by stretching it over the windows themselves. This lets professionals install window tints and films without having to remove or replace glass panes but it also has the secondary benefit of giving the window another layer of strength.  In addition, the film also helps protect against shattering by acting as a net to catch the shards. The glass may crack, but it’s far less likely to shatter and send glass shards at you and your family.

Additional Privacy

A vehicle with tinted windows is harder to look into, some people like the privacy that gives them as well as how it hides any valuables they keep in there car. The same idea goes for window tinting in your home. If a thief can’t see into your home, they’ll be less likely to break in. Additionally, because the window tinting will strengthen your windows it’ll be that much harder for a thief to break in.

Extra protection from storms

Raging storms are a scary thought. Storms like to throw debris around. During one of these storms the risk of shattering windows is high. Window tinting provides additional protection by not only strengthening your homes windows but by also preventing shattering. The window tinting can catch the cracked glass and keep it from spilling into your home with the rain and wind. Storms are scary enough, don’t add the extra stress of worrying about shattered glass in your home.

Window tinting and film are a solid investment in more ways than just saving energy. Give Formula One by AES a call today at 405-513-6400!

Assisted Living- Window Tinting

Assisted Living Residents Enjoy Window Tinting In The Dining Room

Window Tinting Film

In general, lots of elderly communities offer a full continuum of care and also provide a lifestyle that is sensible and affordable for people who may not want to or otherwise may not be able to live alone. One of the most unique amenities in some of the newer establishments includes dining room style set-ups, because enjoying a good meal is one of life’s greatest social experiences. For that reason, it’s always a pleasure for FormulaOne by AES to receive a phone call about window tinting film for dining areas.

Sure, the owners of the assisted living center could simply change up the meal options or offer something a bit more upscale to please their guests, but food isn’t the only way to change the temperament of the room. Likewise, one may dim the lights for adding a touch of elegance to the space, but there’s something even better than just ambience when it comes to dimming the room via window tinting film on the windows.

Sometimes residents will want to enjoy the feeling of being in a restaurant while spending their leisurely night with good friends. They don’t want the glare from street lights coming in or during the other two meal times people would much rather eat without being blinding by streaming sunlight. Aside from that many assisted living communities seek to build a place with great value and security for their residents. Luckily, window tinting film goes one step further than just creating an atmosphere. It also protects the interior from fading and shields residents from harmful UV rays.

Our window tinting experts are able to work with any style, size, or shape of window you may have! We can also work with a variety of different colored window tinting film or various shades of tint, so don’t hesitate to give us a call for your next project!

Window Tinting Film Benefits Even In The Fall

Window Tinting Helps In Cooler Weather, Too

It seems it took Oklahoma a little while to catch up and leave behind those warm, summer days, but just because it’s no longer hitting close to 80 or 90 degrees outside, doesn’t mean that your window tinting will cease to be amazing. If you don’t have window tinting, you might just change your mind!

There is still sunlight in the fall right? Of course! Where there is sunlight there are the sun’s harmful UV rays, as well. No matter what the cooler weather brings along with it, it’s important to be prepared, because the sunlight is still present during the day. In fact, all day long UV rays will enter your home, causing furniture and flooring to fade over time. If you’re sitting inside, you’re at risk of soaking up UV rays, too. One easy way to be protected from the sun’s harmful rays is with window tinting film.

FormulaOne By AES offers several different window tinting options for residential homes, but the one things the varieties have in common is the ability to keep out harmful UV rays. Heating the home when temperatures drop is also something to think about. Did you know that windows alone are not effective when it comes to heating your home? That’s what makes window tinting even more amazing. As it works to keep out UV rays, reduced heating costs for the fall is an inevitable bonus benefit.

Protection couldn’t be more simple. If you want to know more about window tinting film benefits for the fall, please feel free to contact our team members.

If you own your house and you are ready to start seeing energy savings, protect your belongings all year long, and have protection for yourself from harmful UV rays, let’s get started with your window tinting project! Please feel free to give FormulaOne by AES a call at 405-513-6400.

Commercial Window Tinting

3 Benefits Of Window Tinting For Commercial Properties

Window Tinting For Commercial Buildings

There are several benefits for commercial properties and buildings to install high-quality window tinting. The three main benefits include the provisions of; ROI, comfort, and privacy.

Return On Investment: 

First of all, window tinting can reduce the heat transfer from the sun by up to 85%. That means that window tinting your office windows could save the operation money! A building with windows of any size will see a return on investment, because heat stays out and the air conditioner can be used less. You don’t have to wait to see the changes either, applying window tinting yields immediate and measurable results.

Comfort: Having windows in your place of business means that it’s prone to problems like hot spots, glare, and heat that causes fluctuating temperatures. Quality window tinting; however, provides up to 99% protection of Ultraviolet light as well as reduces glares up to 95%. Commercial window tinting helps regulate temperatures by decreasing heat transmission and glare, getting rid of hotspots means that your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard to keep that one spot at the desired temperature meanwhile making the rest of the building frigid.

Privacy: Whether you want a little buffer between the outside world and your shop or you need individual office space privacy, a quality window tinting job can take care of the issue.

***BONUS***: Yes, we said three benefits, but there’s more! *Insert Genius Laughter*

Windows on the outside of a building are usually the weakest point of the structure. A thick security window film will help hold the glass together if it’s shattered. This combined with a dark film can reduce the likelihood of burglary. FormulaOne by AES offers several different films to meet your specific needs. We also offer films that provide insulating benefits year round, so when the winter months come around you’ll be able to stay warm while spending less.

Top 4 Reasons To Switch From Curtains To Window Tinting

Window Tinting Countdown…Ready, Set, Replace!

Watch any home improvement show and you’ll see that curtains are a mainstay of many homes, but there are benefits to using window tinting film over having bulky curtains. Here, we provide the top 4 reasons you should think about replacing your curtains for window tinting:

#1- UV Protection: 

Unless you have your windows tinted, Ultraviolet Rays (UV) are going to come through your windows. Unfortunately, using a window shade or curtains won’t entirely block the UV light from getting through. The damage can be detrimental to your home’s furnishings and can fade carpet, walls, and the curtains themselves. UV rays can also affect your health. Rays of UV light are known to cause skin damage and, if overly exposed without protection, even cancer. Without a UV blocking window tinting film, chances are you and your home are being affected by UV light. Professionally installed window tinting can reduce UV light in your home by up to 99.99% offering a lot of protection.

#2- Saving Energy:

We talk a lot about energy efficiency here at FormulaOne, but it can’t be overstated. Getting professionally installed window tinting will help your windows perform better in the summer, keeping your cooling costs down. Our Enerlogic brand also helps the performance of your windows by increasing their insulation properties. Curtains simply can’t compete with good window tinting.

#3- Reducing Glare:

If you use curtains then you know you have to keep them closed all the time if the light from a windows falls on the TV. Sometimes, this means you have to choose between having a decent view and watching the TV. Window tinting fixes this issue by reducing the glare and allowing you to still use the window without blocking it off. Getting your home’s windows tinted is a good option if you’ve ever felt trapped behind heavy curtains.

#4- Privacy: 

Window films can prevent people from looking into your home as well as adding an extra layer of security. The films that we place on windows will make windows more durable, often preventing the glass from scattering once the window has been broken. Let’s see curtains do that.

Breakfast Nook-Window Tinting

A Breakfast Nook Transformation With Window Tinting

Maintaining The Beautiful View With Window Tinting

Sometimes, people fall in love with a space, such as a beautiful breakfast nook, because the view to the outside world is outstanding. That doesn’t mean; however, that they always want to feel the harsh sun beating down on their backs or that the people sitting opposite them will desire to squint their eyes to avoid being blinded. What’s a person to do if they don’t want to obstruct their beautiful view? You may be surprised by the wonderful transformation from bare glass windows to glass covered in window tinting!

Today, our team at FormulaOne by AES wanted to highlight an idea for a project involving a breakfast nook just like the one in the picture. The wonderful part about many of our residential window tinting films is that they reduce heat by 34% to 83%. Additionally, the film helps to reduce glare from the sun and reducing the fading of furniture inside. This is all possible without having a mirrored or dark look to the film.

Imagine the difference from sitting in a place with an overload of sunlight to suddenly being able to enjoy sitting down in that breakfast nook. When the window tinting is applied the space becomes a comfortable spot that people would actually want to gather in for dining purposes. The film still would allow for plenty of sunlight to enter the space, but without the harmful ultraviolet rays.

No matter which room you would like to transform, window tinting makes a great choice for doing so as there are options for many different design styles! If you have a breakfast nook, a kitchen window, or another place in your home that you’d like to makeover we’d be happy to help.
