Solar Art installed exterior window tint to a home in Malibu, California! As you can see from the photo, this home has beautiful ocean views! Even on cloudy days the views are exceptional. To capitalize on the views the home has large floor to ceiling windows on the entire west side of the home. Just like we’ve said in past case studies, windows let in a lot of heat and this home is no different. Especially since these windows are so large, a ton of heat enters the home throughout the entire day. As you can imagine, the customer didn’t want to lose their views by covering up the glass with blinds or shades. He was looking for a different solution to reduce heat where they wouldn’t have to compromise their views. The homeowner did some research for potential solutions when he came across Solar Art’s website. He learned that window film is a solution for heat as well as many other issues. He decided to reach out to Solar Art to learn more about it! After hearing that the homeowner was having issues with heat but they didn’t want to compromise their views, our sales representative brought different solar films and met the customer at the home. Our sales representative takes exact measurements of the glass and is able to explain the different benefits of each window film. The homeowner is also able to hold the sample up to their glass to see what it will look like.
The homeowner was interested in having an exterior window tint installed as opposed to an interior window film. Our sales representative showed the homeowner different exterior window tint samples and the homeowner liked a 3M window tint called Exterior Prestige 70 the most. This exterior window tint is an extreme heat blocking window film. It is going to block 61% of heat, 20% of glare and 99% of UVA and UVB rays. This is going to make a significant difference in the temperature of the home. The 99% of UVA and UVB rays are key. These ultraviolet rays are the leading culprit of sun fading. Even on gray and cloudy days, these ultraviolet rays still shine through and can damage your floors, furniture and belongings. This exterior window tint is metal free and has low reflectivity, which means you are hardly going to notice it’s there. It isn’t going to change the look of the home and it isn’t going to compromise any views. Since this is an exterior window tint, it's made with a weather stable adhesive which will protect against weathering. Exterior window tint is easily removable with no damage to the glass, which is great if the homeowner decides they no longer want it or it needs to be replaced due to weathering. The homeowner was really happy because they found a window film that checked off everything they were looking for and the views aren’t going to be compromised at all. They decided to install it to all of the glass facing the west side to reduce as much heat as possible and protect their belongings from sun fading. In addition to exterior window tint and solar film, Solar Art also services decorative window film, custom graphics, anti graffiti film, window security film and exterior building wraps.
