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.

Science Museum Oklahoma- Blue Window Tinting Film

The Long-Lasting Decorative Window Tinting At Science Museum Oklahoma

Way Back Wednesday: Remembering A Past Window Tinting Project

It may be an understatement to say that many people’s lives have been enriched by visiting the Science Museum Oklahoma (possibly remembered by some as the Omniplex). For generations people have marveled at the scientific wonders and new discoveries found inside. Taking a look at the museum’s history you will learn that the building itself has changed quite a bit as it has gone through many transformations since 1958. Of course, a building isn’t just about being inviting on the inside, because it’s the outside décor that has to almost subconsciously draw someone in. That’s where decorative window tinting came into play at the end of February, 2016.

FormulaOne by AES had the privilege and honor of being hired last year to apply some decorative window tinting film to the many glass pieces that now make up the sidewalk’s awning outside of the Science Museum Oklahoma. Each piece of film was carefully measured, cut, and individually applied to each rectangularly shaped piece of glass. The unique blue color of the film was meant to mimic a sort of stained glass, but at a fraction of the cost!

Now, over one year later visitors can still see the results of our handy work sticking on strong. The durable, decorative window tinting is certainly a long-lasting film that is still doing its job of providing protection from the sun’s heat, glare, and Ultraviolet Radiation. If you’ve never really taken the time to notice this film before, now you know why it’s there. If it’s been a while since your last visit, next time you’re out at the Science Museum Oklahoma look up at the decorative window tinting on your way inside!

We love helping businesses achieve various looks with many different window tinting options. If you own a business and you’d like to get started with your own project that will be sure to last for years to come, feel free to contact FormulaOne by AES at 405-513-6400.

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. To get started with your project, please feel free to give FormulaOne by AES a call at 405-513-6400.

The fact is that LLumar window tinting film can help generate energy savings as high as 15% for commercial property owners.
