Solar Art installed heat blocking window film to an office in Palo Alto, California! This is a real estate company that has a really open concept office. They don’t have a lot of walls and they have a lot of really large glass windows. The business owner and the employees both love how open the office is and how much natural light the office has. It makes the office feel bright, airy and welcoming. The one problem with the glass windows is the sun that beams through and the heat. The sun creates annoying glare that reflects off computer screens making it really difficult to see. It can make afternoon meetings really difficult and even lowers productivity in the office. Seeing as the whole office loves the natural light, they didn’t want to lose it by having blinds or shades installed. They were looking for a solution to reduce heat and reduce glare without making the office dark and uninviting. The owner of the company had window film installed at their home for similar reasons and thought it might be a good fit for the office. The company requested a free quote from Solar Art so they could see some samples and see if it would for for the conference room.
Our sales representative met the customer at the office with a bunch of different solar film samples to see what the customer likes and doesn’t like. All solar films are going to block a different amount of heat and glare. Some solar films are going to have more of a tint than others and they all look a little different. After seeing all of the different solar film options they have, the customer decided they liked the Huper Optik brand, specifically Ceramic 40 (C40). C40 is a ceramic window tint which means it contains no metals or dyes. It has really low reflectivity which means you are still going to have a ton of natural light coming into the office and the aesthetics aren’t going to change at all. Not to mention, ceramic window tint is a heat blocking window film. The window film they chose blocks 55% of heat, 53% of glare and 99% of UVA and UVB rays. Blocking 55% of heat is going to significantly help with their heat issue. The office should be more comfortable without having to resort to the air conditioner, which will ultimately result in a lower electricity bill. So that’s a win-win situation. Blocking 53% of glare will help with the office productivity and make it easier to see the computer screens, especially in the afternoon. An added bonus is blocking 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays. These rays are the main cause of sun fading, so now the customer can have peace of mind knowing their office belongings are protected from the sun. 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 throughout California and Washington state.
