Solar Art installed solar film to the Tacoma Police Headquarters! Mainly in the summertime the police headquarters was having a problem with not only heat, but glare as well. As you can see from the photo, the majority of their building is comprised of glass. There are a ton of private offices and conference rooms that have large windows that let a ton of heat in, especially in the afternoons. Seeing as practically the entire building is made of glass, the exterior of the building has a really cool look. They didn’t want to install blinds or shades because it would completely change the aesthetics of the building, especially from the outside. If some employees have the blinds or shades up while others have them down, the building is going to look messy and not uniform from the outside. The police headquarters didn’t want to change the look of the building but really wanted to fix the heat and glare issue. Employees were uncomfortable and even becoming less productive because it was difficult to see their computer screens. They researched different window treatment options that wouldn’t change the look of the building and they came across an article by Solar Art talking about window film. They were instantly interested, so they reached out to learn more!
Since the customer’s main objective was to reduce heat and reduce glare without changing the aesthetics of the space, our sales representative first thought of different products made by Huper Optik.
