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. A cool eye-catching design that also provides protection from the sun and privacy for those VIP clients. Designs like this one are very flexible and can fit into a wide range of settings.

These are just a few of the ideas we’ve found. Come back next week to see the rest. If any of these ideas have inspired you to try a decorative window tinting in your home or office, give Formula One By AES a call today at 405-513-6400!

Saving Your Greenhouse Plants With Window Tinting

Window Tinting Keeps Your Plants Going Strong

Now that it is officially fall, temperatures are bound to start dropping accordingly. That being said, many gardeners have ended their work for the season. Of course, greenhouse owners have an advantage as they can keep their plants alive longer. Guess what? Window tinting can make growing your plants in a greenhouse, with glass windows, even more effective!

Window tinting has the capability of insulating a greenhouse so that the heat can remain inside rather than escaping into the outdoors. It’s a wonderful way to ensure that your glass greenhouse stays warm throughout the fall and even in the winter months to come. With the window tinting film doing the work to reflect the heat back inside your greenhouse for you, the price of your energy bill doesn’t have to be so expensive.

If you’re worried that window tinting would block the sunlight from getting to your plants, fear not! FormulaOne by AES has plenty of film options for you which still allow sunlight to come through while allowing your plants to survive Oklahoma’s fluctuating temperatures. Also, if you opt to have film applied to your greenhouse windows now, it will still provide year-round benefits. What we mean is that in the spring and summer months, it’ll work opposite and keep the cool air inside.

As if thriving plants weren’t a good enough reason to consider window tinting, think about protecting yourself. As you work long hours in your garden you’ll also be protected from harmful UV rays thanks to the design of our window tinting films.

Do you own a greenhouse? Are you ready to start seeing energy savings, protect your plants all year long, and have protection for yourself from harmful UV rays? To get started with your customized project, please feel free to give FormulaOne by AES a call at 405-513-6400.

Window Tinting- Arizona House

Window Tinting As A Smart Energy Saving Solution In Arizona

Beating The Arizona Heat With Window Tinting

If there’s one thing residents of Arizona know and understand very well it’s that no matter what time of year it is, the temperatures in this state can cause some extreme heat waves. This is especially true on most summer days. According to average recorded temperatures, gathered since 1981, nearly every day during the summer in Phoenix tops 99° Fahrenheit. For June, the average high temperature is around 104° Fahrenheit while the low is 77° Fahrenheit. With that being said, you can imagine that energy savings of any kind would be highly important in this state. Luckily, FormulaOne by AES was able to help out one resident with some much needed window tinting!

For the project we’re talking about, the homeowner’s number one concern was obviously energy savings. That was an easy fix with some of FormulaOne’s residential window tinting film. This slightly darkened film is able to reject heat up to 83%, depending on the time of the year. What the homeowner may not have realized until later on is that the window tinting film also offered a few other benefits.

This particular home was situated right next to the mountains, providing what should have been the most lovely view of the outdoor scenery. The problem when trying to peer out of the window at the mountainous horizon in the near distance was that the sun’s harsh glare was so bright it nearly blinded the homeowner from seeing anything! Now, with the addition of the window tinting film the homeowner can enjoy looking out of the window at the beautiful space outside without straining their eyes.

In addition to the film keeping the glaring sunlight from streaming in, the film protects carpet, flooring, and furniture with 99.9% Ultraviolet Ray rejection.

At FormulaOne by AES we fix problems like these every day and we’d love to help you with your next project. To contact us give us a call at 405-513-6400.

Pub W- Blackout Window Tinting

3 Ways Pub W In South OKC Benefits From Blackout Window Tinting

Custom Window Tinting For A “Chill” Ambience

Pub W is a restaurant chain that was originally established in 2013 and their most recent location opened up in November of 2016 on the south side of Oklahoma City. To maintain the ambience of a modern American pub with an atmosphere that makes you want to “chill out”, the restaurant owners opted to have blackout window tinting film applied to their windows.

This speciality, custom window tinting film offers the restaurant a myriad of benefits. Today, we’d like to discuss 3 ways in which Pub W is recognizing a few of those benefits even nearly 6 months after the application took place!

  • Room darkening benefits: By utilizing window tinting rather than other window treatment options, the owners of Pub W have been able to benefit from a more effective light suppression option at a low cost. The trouble with blackout curtains is that the maintenance to keep them cleaned is a lot more costly and strenuous than wiping down a window! Furthermore, blackout blinds often still allow light to peak in around the sides, making them a poor choice for total room darkening.
  • Increased energy savings: High quality blackout window tinting has a highly efficient solar reflectance rating and solar absorption properties. This translates to the owners of Pub W being able to reduce their energy bills thanks to the diminished need for air conditioning and the film also helps keep the interior warmer during colder months, too!
  • 100% privacy: If you’re walking outside the building at Pub W, you will notice that you cannot see inside the windows. That’s due to the completely opaque blackout window tinting. This sounds like it’s only a benefit for the diners, but truly if those eating inside don’t have to worry about people staring at them from outside they’ll feel more “chill” and be more immersed into the Pub W atmosphere.

Window Tinting- Zoes Kitchen

Zoe’s Kitchen Reduces Solar Heat With Reflective Window Tinting

Window Tinting With Vista By LLumar Soft Horizons V33

Have you ever thought about all the work that goes into planning and running a restaurant? No matter what kind of restaurant it is, the owner has a lot of little details to attend to. Everything from the artwork, to the wall color, and all the way to the seating selection makes up a specific ambience. Then, there are the financial things to think about and bills to be paid. Solar heat coming in through the windows can surely make those energy bills skyrocket and that’s where window tinting becomes a wonderful solution.

Today, we’re talking about how the restaurant owner of Zoe’s Kitchen near Quail Springs Mall decided to add some window tinting to their glass doors and windows for multiple reasons. This owner of a fast and casual Mediterranean-inspired restaurant certainly wanted to keep the interior tables, chairs, and floors looking their best, yet still allow for high-visibility outside. Additionally, saving money on energy bills never sounds like a bad idea to any business owner!

FormulaOne by AES took this information into consideration and the decision to apply a neutral window tinting film seemed like the best option. Vista by Llumar Soft Horizons V33 is a lighter version of reflective window tinting film that provides moderate heat rejection (up to 54%) and reduces the glare while eliminating fade-causing ultraviolet sunlight. In this way, the film on the glass is a protection system for the materials inside the restaurant, provides energy savings, and also provides a comfort for the customers sitting inside.

Do you have a restaurant, commercial office, or a room in your house where you would like to block harsh sun rays? We have many different window tinting options to choose from to make the project perfectly suited for your needs.

Chesapeake- Window Tinting

Commercial Window Tinting For Chesapeake

An Energy Saving Window Tinting For An Energy Company

What is the first word you think about when you hear or see the company name Chesapeake? Hopefully, your answer was “energy”. Did you know that Chesapeake Energy has a goal to maintain the health and safety of their employees, owners, the environment and the public? With that being said it makes sense that this energy company would want to focus on providing safety and energy savings any way possible, including via the utilization of commercial window tinting.

Now you may be thinking “how does this provide safety and energy savings?” Let us explain a little bit more about the decision that Chesapeake made to have FormulaOne By AES apply window tinting to one of their buildings.

The fact is that LLumar window tinting film can help generate energy savings as high as 15% for commercial property owners. It also helps to eliminate hot and cold spots in the office and provides a protective barrier from outside viewers for the privacy of the office tenants. Additionally, the dark tint prevents sun damage to the interior furniture, flooring, and sensitive electronics. These are all good reasons why Chesapeake has chosen to utilize window tinting film.

Aside from protection, window tinting such as the LLumar film used for Chesapeake’s building also helps to give the exterior of the building an updated appearance without changing the overall structure of the building and without having to replace the existing glass.

The truth is that LLumar window tinting film has been enhancing many well-known buildings around the world for decades!

Window Film For Energy Savings This Winter

Get Your Estimate On EnerLogic Window Film

Over the last few years more companies have joined the “going green” craze taking action towards conserving energy while preserving the needs of basic human needs. In today’s architectural designs of newer buildings you’ll often see the incorporation of many windows for bringing in a lot of natural light, a necessary aspect of life. The only downside to all these windows is that the heat levels either rise in summer or escape in winter, making the company spend more to keep the working environment comfortable. This is counterproductive to their plan to be “green” in the first place. Luckily, companies like EnerLogic have come up with a practical window film solution.

EnerLogic has worked for the past 18 years to develop the best window film that provides an energy solution without sacrificing light. This wonderful window film allows the natural light to come in while blocking the harsh UV rays which is the heat we don’t see, but feel. In the winter time it works to contain the heat from the building preventing the need to switch on the heater too much.

Building managers are excited to see the amount energy savings! In fact, EnerLogic talks about one project where the company was able to saved 15 million dollars on using the EnerLogic window film product rather than having to have complete window replacement. This savings is thanks to the fact that they didn’t have to remove any scaffolding from the building or reconstruct anything in order to apply the window film.

With just windows blinds alone, you still have to worry about the glare of the sun at certain times of the day. Imagine being able to control the light streaming in without the harsh glare on computer screens. Having this capability allows commercial business workers to be more productive!
