Panorama CX Ceramic Solar Film
11-10-2016 0

During the last three plus decades of installing solar film, I have seen dozens of new films that gain popularity whenever a new technology becomes available, the latest being ceramic films. 

Usually Solar Gard leads the industry with innovation and I wondered why they didn't produce a ceramic film along with everyone else.  Now that we have the film, I can see that it was worth the wait.  Solar Gard always does it right!  This film is so good that Solar Gard placed it in their premiere line, Panorama!

With high heat rejection, high visible light transmission, and low reflectance, this film is great for storefronts and homes with million dollar views.  Contact us today to see how Panorama CX Ceramic Film can solve your energy conservation need. 

What Causes Fading?
18-06-2014 0

The number one reason consumers choose window film is to protect their valuable furniture, draperies and flooring from fading. With this in mind you should know a few things.

Most people associate fading with ultraviolet. It is easy to understand why you might assume that a window film product with a 98% or 99% ultraviolet rejection rate could eliminate fading in your home. However, since other factors contribute to fading, more information needs to be presented.

It is very important to understand that ultraviolet contributes only 40% to the fading problem. Visible light contributes 25% and solar energy (heat) contributes another 25%, resulting in a full 50% contribution to the problem. The remaining 10% of what causes fading is directly tied to the quality, or lack of quality, of the dyes used in furnishings, fabrics and carpet. Knowing this makes it easy to see why stopping only the ultraviolet will not eliminate fading.

An EPD is globally accepted as the most comprehensive way to validate a products' environmental messages.  If an EPD shows a product to be carbon negative, it means that the carbon saved by using the product is greater than the energy used to make it.

On Aug 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast of the United States with winds in excess of 170 miles per hour. 1,833 people died. Most of the media focused on the New Orleans area; however the worst property damage occurred in coastal areas such as Mississippi beach front towns with storm surge reaching as far as 12 miles inland. In November, three months after Katrina, a disaster team from First Baptist Church Bonita Springs, FL headed to Biloxi MS to help a small church by the name of East Howard Baptist church rebuild.
