Calling all designers! Solar Art installed heat blocking window film to a home in Malibu, California! This house is absolutely gorgeous. It is facing the ocean and the entire west side of the home has all water views. The homeowner recently purchased this home and was completely redoing it. They hired a designer to help with the project. The homeowner was redoing the floors, walls, getting all new furniture and more. Obviously the homeowner wanted to utilize the ocean views as much as possible, but like we have seen before, heat is a big issue. The heat radiates through the glass at all hours of the day, making the home really hot and uncomfortable. The homeowner told the designer their concerns with the heat and they both agreed that curtains and blinds wouldn’t be a good fit for this home. The homeowner didn’t like that idea because they didn’t want to lose the ocean views in any room of their home. The designer didn’t like the idea of blinds or shades because it doesn’t match with the look the home has. One of the projects the designer was doing for this home was to figure out a way to reduce heat without compromising any of the homeowner’s ocean views.
Just like any other customer Solar Art has, the designer researched different window treatment options online when they came across window film. They looked up window film companies near the Malibu area and came across Solar Art’s website. They decided to request a free quote to see if window film would be a good fit for this home and to find out what pricing is like. Our sales representative met with the designer at the home to show them different heat blocking window films. Since the homeowner doesn’t want anything that will compromise their ocean views and the designer didn’t want anything that would change the aesthetics of the home, our sales representative started by showing the customer the 3M Prestige series and the Huper Optik Ceramic series. After seeing both options, the designer liked the 3M Prestige series the best, specifically 3M Prestige 40. This heat blocking window film has low interior and exterior reflectivity. What that means is the aesthetics of the home aren’t going to change much and the ocean views are going to completely stay in tact, which is a win-win situation for both the homeowner and the designer. This heat blocking window film is going to block 60% of heat, 55% of glare and 99% of UVA and UVB rays. This will make a noticeable difference in the temperature of the home. The home should be cooler without the homeowner having to turn to the air conditioning. An added benefit is the fact that this heat blocking window film blocks 99% of ultraviolet rays, which are the leading cause of sun fading. The homeowner can have peace of mind knowing their furniture is being protected from the sun. Both the designer and the homeowner were really happy with the results of the installation. The homeowner got to keep their views, the designer got to keep the look of the home the same, and the heat issue was resolved. In addition to heat blocking window film, Solar Art also services decorative window film, custom graphics, anti graffiti film, window security film and exterior building wraps.
