When we talk about homes, we often talk about large glass windows that let in a lot of heat and glare. You might be a homeowner that’s thinking, what if I have small squares of glass in my window or door? If you are one of those people, this case study is for you! Those small glass panes within a window or a door are called french panes and they are actually extremely common. Solar Art frequently installs window film to french panes, so not to worry, it can be done! Solar Art installed ceramic tint to a home in Pacific Palisades, California! This homeowner had french panes in their master bedroom that were causing heat and glare issues. Even though they are broken down into smaller panes, french panes still let in the same amount of heat and glare. The customer really liked these windows because it gave the room a cool design and also has a really clean look. They didn’t want to have to cover the windows, but they wanted to find a way to help with the heat and glare issues. They had a neighbor who had window film installed to their home for the same reasons, so the customer decided to reach out and see if window film would work for their home! Our sales representative brought different solar film samples with him for the customer to take a look at. The customer's main goal was to reduce heat and reduce glare in the master bedroom. The homeowner told our sales representative they only wanted window film in the master bedroom, and they wanted to know if there is a window film on the market that won’t change the look of their home. Because their master bedroom is in the front of the house on the first floor, they were worried that their home was going to look odd with a few windows being a different shade than all the others. Our sales representative let the customer know that there are window films like that available, and he showed the customer the different samples and explained the benefits of each.
Ceramic tint is one of your best options when it comes to heat and glare rejection without changing the look of a space. Ceramic tint is made nano-ceramic technology and contains no metals or dyes. It also has a natural tone with low reflectivity, which means it isn’t going to drastically change the look of a space. The homeowner can easily install a ceramic tint to only their master bedroom windows and have peace of mind knowing their home isn’t going to look or mismatched. With that being said, the customer decided to move forward with ceramic tint, specifically C50. This ceramic tint is going to block 50% of heat, 45% of glare and 99% of UVA and UVB rays. This will make a noticeable difference in the temperature of the master bedroom. Our sales representative explained that blocking 99% of ultraviolet rays is also going to protect their beautiful hardwood floors from sun fading, which is an added bonus. Our installation crew went onsite, and installed the ceramic tint to the french panes in the master bedroom! One important thing to note about french panes is that they take a little more time to install than a standard window because of their size and the quantity. The customer was really happy with the results of the installation and thought it was the perfect fit for their master bedroom. In addition to ceramic tint and solar film, Solar Art also services decorative window film, custom graphics, anti graffiti film, window security film and exterior building wraps to homes and commercial buildings all throughout the West Coast.
