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!

Colorful Decorative Window Tinting

Custom Shaped Decorative Window Tinting

Colorful Circular Window Tinting Film

We feel that there’s something simply intriguing about windows that aren’t the standard rectangular or square shape. It seems that many designers are taking a more artistic approach and finding inspiration for many different shaped windows. These custom shaped windows are certainly a great way to add a unique architectural look to your home, office, or commercial building. Today, we’re showcasing a circular window, because colorful decorative window tinting is even better than a plain circular window!

FormulaOne by AES was challenged with this particular project to provide custom shaped decorative window tinting in multiple colors. The project took time to create the custom circular shape with perfect precision. Next, the window tinting film had to be perfectly placed to avoid bubbles and since it was on the ceiling, it was a fun project to complete. As with any project, this film was cut exactly to fit every inch of the glass.

The design choice by the owners certainly made for a superb option for making their circular window look even more stylish. As you can see in the photo, the semi-transparent colored window tinting film mimics a stained glass appearance in that it can still allow natural light to flow in with an array of colors!

FormulaOne by AES has had a few projects involving the decorative window tinting as it has become quite popular. So, if you are looking for a colorful window tinting option to go with your unique shaped windows or you would like to learn more about our selection, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

One Way Window Tinting- Chickasaw Nation Health Clinic

Chickasaw Nation Health Clinic’s Window Tinting Film With 84% Heat Rejection

One Way Mirror Window Tinting

Research tells us that the annual cost of running a health clinic can be hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. This includes everything from employee expenses, office occupancy, and office supplies. It’s not surprising to us, after learning this information, to know that an owner of such a clinic would want to take advantage of every money saving opportunity possible, without skimping on the quality of the healthcare provided. That’s where one way window tinting film came to the rescue for one clinic.

FormulaOne by AES consulted with the owners Chickasaw Nation Health Clinic (located in Purcell, Oklahoma) to hash out the finer details of the project. It was determined that Llumar’s one way mirror film would be the best option for this particular job.

Not only did we apply the one way mirror window tinting film to Chickasaw Nation Health Clinic’s windows for the purpose of obtaining 84% heat rejection, but it also helped provide comfort for the patients.

The clinic’s owner can now rest a little easier by saving some money on energy bills with the 84% heat rejection window tinting and the patients can have both privacy and benefit from feeling less of the sun’s harsh glare while filling out paperwork or simply as they sit in the waiting room.

The reflection from the window tinting film when standing outside is also most definitely visible during the daytime, but when it’s gloomy or darker outside patients can see the lights on inside the building to know that the clinic is open.

Many businesses, clinics, and private residences have learned about the convenience of having window tinting. We enjoyed being able to help Chickasaw Nation Health Clinic and we’d love to help you, too! There’s no project too big or too small for us.

Decorative Tinting For Creating Large Logos

Decorative Tinting: Film And Vinyl

You might be surprised to learn that window tinting for exterior windows or auto windows isn’t all that tinting can be used for these days. In fact, one type of project that FormulaOne By AES really enjoys doing is creating custom artwork for companies to match their branding or design of choice. Our decorative tinting projects are most often utilized in places like conference rooms, lobbies, educational institutions, and accent walls in offices.

One example of our custom work was actually done a few months ago. One particular FormulaOne project was completed with the OU School Of Law back in September. At the beginning of this particular project all we started out with was a photo of the school’s logo. Our team got right work on ensuring that this decorative tinting would be amazing! Many hours went into the re-creating process of the logo which was acceptable for film and vinyl.

In the end, the staff on board at OU School of Law was so pleased with the final product of the decorative tinting that it appeared in a commercial which was shot of their new area in the library. Throughout the commercial you may see several shots of the LLumar Window Film in White Frost with black vinyl, but there was also another wall covered with the decorative tinting logo which was done in Oracal Red (as seen in the photo above).

One Way Mirror Film- Window Tinting

Tinting An Office Window With One Way Mirror Film

Window Tinting: A One Way Mirror Film Project

A one way mirror, also known a two-way mirror, allows viewers to see out of one side while the other side is reflective. These popular one way mirrors are well known, most likely, in part from detective television shows. The one way mirror film, however; has become a popular choice for office windows. This method of window tinting provides privacy for an office space and those that happen to walk by will only see their reflection.

In case you’re wondering whether your business would look alright with one way mirror film applied to the windows, we’ve provided a short list of company types that have recently had this same installation completed:

  • Insurance agents
  • Credit unions
  • Churches
  • Coffee shops
  • Doctor’s offices
  • Dealerships
  • Private businesses

Truthfully, it can look good just about anywhere and provide just the right amount of privacy with a touch of elegance. There’s just something rather nice about a mirrored look, isn’t there? Of course, this generally only applies to businesses that are operating during daytime hours. This distinction is important to note, because there is no such thing as a completely dark one way mirror. If lights are on inside during evening hours it may be possible for outside viewers to see inside.

This is why many customers elect to install the one way mirror films for daytime privacy. If your office operates during the day then just know that you don’t have to be as serious as an interrogation room to have a little window mirror film or tinting. As an added bonus to having the reflective, one way mirror film added to your outside windows you won’t have harsh rays of sun gleaming over your computer screens, carpet, or desks.

We love helping people achieve the window tinting look that they desire. If you’re looking for one way mirror film, please feel free to give FormulaOne by AES a call for your next office window project. We can be reached at 405-513-6400.
