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!

Window Tinting

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.

Frosted Window Tinting

Various Shades Of Frosted Color Blocking Window Tinting Film

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. Today, our FormulaOne by AES team is showing how various shades of frosted window tinting film can be utilized to create a unique design.

What’s great about the darker frost is that it allows for a bit of privacy and by mixing it up with the lighter window tinting film the office door’s window looks a lot more glamourous. 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?

If you have an office (or perhaps you’d want this in your home) and you’re tired of looking at boring glass windows or doors, then window tinting film may be just what you need to spruce up the place. To prevent yourself from feeling overly exposed in your office or home, we encourage you to consider white frost window tinting.

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.

If you’re ready to get started with your next window tinting project, please feel free to contact FormulaOne by AES at 405-513-6400.

The Benefits Of Using Enerlogic Window Film

How Enerlogic Can Benefit Your Home

There are many ways that you can save yourself money when it comes to home upgrades. Most people immediately think of CFL light bulbs, adding insulation, and weather stripping, but not many people think of Enerlogic (but they should). Enerlogic window film will essentially give a single pane window the insulating properties of a double pane window. This also carries over making a double pane window insulate as if it were a triple pane window. As an added bonus, the performance isn’t just for keeping the heat out during the hottest months, because it works all year round!

Tinting your home windows is the smartest way to save:

Tinting windows with the Enerlogic film will turn an ordinary home’s windows into thermal and energy efficient windows. The Enerlogic film filters out glare, excess heat, and Ultraviolet Radiation. We believe that homeowners utilizing this film will see a reduction in their energy consumption at a fraction of the cost that it would take to completely replace the windows. FormulaOne by AES also offers a lifetime transferable warranty, so you’re not just saving money, but you’re also adding value to your home.

Real results make for real savings: Our projected energy savings, listed below, was calculated by using the RESFEN program with homes that have clear single pane windows.

Over the course of the product’s life, homeowners with Enerlogic window film on single pane windows can save an average of $3,500 for their heating and cooling costs. The return on investment is fantastic, but adding value to your home is a great investment and it comes in at a fraction of the cost that you would expect to pay for completely replacing your windows with an extra pane of glass.

Sounds pretty good right? What are you waiting for? Give us a call, at 405-513-6400, for a free estimate and learn how you can save with Enerlogic window film.

Blackout Window Tinting For Day Sleepers

Blackout Window Tinting For Day Sleepers

Curtains Not Doing It? Try Room Darkening Window Tinting

When you work the night shift you may care very little about allowing light into your bedroom during the daytime. In fact, the only thing on your mind is how to effectively keep the light out so that you can get some much needed shut-eye. With that on your mind, it’s understandable that you may not want to spend your budget on super heavy curtains, blinds, or other window treatments only to have the possibility of light peaking out on the sides or to have them be closed for the majority of the time. For day sleepers a fabulous alternative to bulky window treatments is total blackout window tinting.

FormulaOne by AES has many window tinting options, but blackout film is worth the mention in that it offers those who work the night shift the opportunity to sleep comfortably during the day by easily darkening the room. This window tinting film is 100% opaque so it does just what the name implies; blacks out any light from coming through.

For that reason, it’s not only chosen by many adults trying to rest in total darkness. In fact, a lot of people hate sleeping with any kind of light on! Some parents have even chosen to put room darkening window tinting on the windows in their infant’s room.

For a practical, high-quality room darkening solution that doesn’t require a hefty budget or take too long to apply, FormulaOne’s blackout window tinting is a fabulous choice.

If you need us, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 405-513-6400. We look forward to helping our customers find the window tinting film that best suits their needs. If privacy is what you require, our staff at FormulaOne by AES would be happy to help!

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.

Office Space- White Frost Window Tinting

White Frost Privacy Window Tinting For An Office Within An Office

Creating A Private Space With Window Tinting Film

It’s a common concept to see sectioned off office spaces within a larger office complex, but for the person working inside of one of these office rooms walled with glass it can be a little difficult to truly have a private working space. Closing the door doesn’t do much good when other employees walking by can simply peer into the open glass and see you sitting at your desk. Not to mention, if you deal with customers they might appreciate a little more privacy while you’re handling their affairs. A perfect solution to this little problem is the installation of privacy window tinting film.

White frost window tinting film, to be precise, is fast becoming one of the most popular options for commercial building spaces when privacy is in question. The white frost window tinting film is wonderful as it provides an affordable, functional, and decorative way to easily separate two spaces. As you can see in the cover photo of this article, no one is going to be seeing inside this small office thanks to the perfectly placed white frost film. This example case study made the office worker very happy, indeed!

If you have an office within an office and the blank windows are causing you to feel overly exposed in your work station, we encourage you to consider white frost window tinting.

If by chance the frosted glass design is, in fact, something you are interested in achieving, FormulaOne by AES would be more than happy to help you do just that! We can have your project completed in a very short, allowing you to get back to work in privacy.

Please do not hesitate to give our window tinting team a call for your next frosted glass project (or any other film project you have in mind). FormulaOne by AES can be reached at 405-513-6400.
