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.

Residential Window Tinting

How To Beat The Heat With Residential Window Tinting

Turning Up The Heat On Window Tinting

It’s August and the Oklahoma summer is in full swing. With the long days come the extra hours that your home is exposed to the sun’s heat waves. It’s possible to beat the heat by using one of FormulaOne’s window tinting solutions. It may be easy to think of at least one benefit of using residential window tinting to reduce heat in your home, but do you actually know what the real benefits of using window tinting in your home can be?

Let’s take a look at 2 ways residential window tinting can help you during the hottest month of the year!

#1 Controlling The Sunlight: We’re not saying you’ll suddenly become an almighty “god” and suddenly wield some power of the sun, but what we are saying is that the simple window tinting formula actually reduces how much light is absorbed by your home’s windows. The reflected light also reduces hows much heat your home absorbs. By reducing the amount of heat and UV rays that enter your home you reduce the amount of damage to furniture, flooring, and walls. Getting the windows in your home tinted will also help disperse the light giving your home a softer, more evenly lit appearance.

#2- An Investment In Your Home: FormulaOne by AES offers a transferable warranty. That means when you decide to move out of your home the next residents will be able to enjoy the benefits of the window tinting. That’s an investment that anyone can see the value in. Residential window tinting has also been proven to reduce the need for heating and air conditioning in the home. By reducing the heat introduced from outside the home, in the summer months, we enable our customers to live in an environment optimized for comfort. We also offer products like Enerlogic, which works year-round to keep the heat out during the summer time and heat in during the winter months.

We believe in our products and we want you to be able to experience the benefits of our window tinting. That’s why we offer free estimates to potential buyers! Call us now at 405-513-6400 to get started on your next home project.

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. You can call FormulaOne by AES at 405-513-6400 to get started on your next project.

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.

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!
