Cool Window Tinting ideas from Pintrest Pt. 1

Window tinting is a great investment in your home, and it can even be customized!

Here are some of the coolest window tinting ideas we found browsing the internet.

Window Tinting

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!

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!

How Window film protects furniture

Nice furniture and floors are expensive. Here’s how window film can help protect this investment.

The main source of damage that the sun causes is fading and darkening of wood. We’ll get into how window film helps protect your interiors but first, how does the sun affect your interiors? Hardwood floors and furniture can change shade over time with unprotected exposure to the sun. While some woods can still look good after this fading or darkening, this is only if the affect is uniform across the whole floor. Since most floors have parts covered with rugs and furniture, your unlikely to get universal coverage and you’ll be left with ugly, uneven patches on your floor. UV rays are the primary culprit when it comes to altering furniture. These rays are invisible to the naked eye but over time, it can cause furniture to fade, floors to darken, artwork to degrade, and generally wreak havoc on your interiors. The other kind of ray that can accelerate this kind of damage are infrared rays. Infrared rays are the main type of heating ray, heating up the interiors of your home and accelerating the damage caused by UV rays. One more thing to note, these are the same rays that can affect your skin as well. Just because your indoors does not mean you are safe from these potentially damaging rays.

Here’s how Window Film protects your home and you

High quality window film, like the ones sold by Formula One By AES, work by reflecting the suns UV and IR rays. High quality window film can block out up to 99.99% of UV rays, protecting your furniture and you in the process, and up to 85% of IR rays. In addition to protecting you and your furniture, window film will also lower your energy costs by reducing the amount of heat that enters your home from the suns rays.

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.

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.

Privacy Meets Decorative In This Window Tinting Project

The white frost look has become quite popular for privacy purposes in many different offices. It’s not uncommon to see white frost window tinting film being used between cubicles that have glass windows separating them or for doors with glass windows leading to an office.

This color blocking effect is affordable, functional, and also decorative. As you can see in both the cover photo of this article and the full size photo below, the sections of frosted window tinting film have been perfectly placed to create a symmetrical look on both sides.

White Frost Color Blocking

Needless to say, the office owner was very happy with the outcome of this frosted color blocking pattern! Now, after seeing it for yourself, is this something you would want done in your own office?

To prevent yourself from feeling overly exposed in your office or home, we encourage you to consider white frost window tinting.
