Windows are an essential part of all homes.
Some homes even use large windows and glass
doors as distinctive architectural features.
Unfortunately, ordinary window and door glass
allow the sun's heat and glare to penetrate inside
the living area, resulting in higher energy bills,
faded interiors, and occupant discomfort. Our
SUN-GARD solar control window films help tame
the undesirable effects of the sun.
Window and door glass are also the most vulnerable part of every home. They offer easy access points
for criminals and violent weather, and inviting targets for vandals. Glass is also a safety hazard when
people, pets, or stray golf balls break it. Our GLASS-GARD window films help hold shattered glass
together, providing a safer and more secure home and reducing potential property loss and personal
SUN-GARD and GLASS-GARD window films are a small investment that pays dividends for many
SUN-GARD Solar Control Window Films
Lowers Energy Bills. SUN-GARD films are a micro-thin, but highly effective, layer of insulation that
prevent up to 78% of the sun's heat from passing through ordinary glass. Energy consumption is
measurably reduced during the summer months because air conditioning systems do not have to work
as hard to maintain comfortable temperatures inside. The films also reduce energy consumption during
the cold months, albeit to a lesser degree, by helping to prevent heat loss through the glass.
Slows Fading of Furniture. The sun's invisible ultraviolet (UV) rays and heat are the principle culprits
that cause furnishings, floor and window coverings, artwork, and family photographs to fade. SUN-GARD
films block out 95-99% of the UV-A rays that penetrate clear window glass, whereas the glass by itself
blocks out only about 33%. This additional UV blocking power, in combination with the heat rejection,
slows down the fading process and keeps things looking new.
Increases Occupant Comfort and Health. SUN-GARD films help to eliminate "hot spots" that
frequently exist in rooms that receive the greatest sun exposure. They also reduce the sun's glare,
permitting occupants to enjoy the views and reducing annoying reflections on TV and computer screens.
Less UV radiation comes through the glass too, which is a benefit to those concerned about skin
cancer and accelerated skin aging.
Enhances Home Appearance. SUN-GARD film is available in several color tones that can enhance
the appearance of most homes. Also, the heat and glare reduction capabilities of window films reduce
the need to close window blinds and drapes, helping to give the exterior of the home a more open and
Increases Privacy. Window film makes it more difficult for people to see in your home during the day,
adding a sense of privacy and security.
A large selection of residential films is available to meet your needs.
We are prepared to help you select the optimum window film for your needs
and to install it professionally. We have the following choices available.
Premium Performance: Nova and Oasis Series. These films are our best because they provide a
high level of heat and glare reduction without resorting to darker shades. They achieve their superior
solar management properties solely with metals deposited on the film by a technically sophisticated
process called sputtering. Because they can take a beating from the sun and retain their original
appearance for a longer time, these films carry the most comprehensive warranty.
Preferred Performance: The Decorator, Blue, Gray, and Bronze Series. These very popular
films achieve their excellent solar control properties by use of vapor deposited metals and dyes.
They offer the benefits of solar control film for a more economical price.
GLASS-GARD Safety & Security Window Films
Offers Cost Effective Safety Glazing. When
people accidentally collide with ordinary annealed
glass the shards can inflict serious injury. But with
GLASS-GARD film applied to the glass, the
dangerous shards are rendered much less harmful
because the pieces are held together on the film
by powerful adhesives. And it is usually less
costly and quicker to apply a GLASS-GARD film
than it is to reglaze a window with tempered
safety glass. Our films meet the following safety
- American National Standards Institute.ANSI Z 97.1 Unlimited.
- Consumer Products Safety Commission: CPSC 16. CFR 1201, Category I & II.
- British Standards 6206.
- 476 Building Official Code Association: BOCA Safety Glazing Standard.
Deters Intruders. Window and door glass is the favorite target of burglars, vandals, and other
intruders. After GLASS-GARD film is applied, it takes repeated blows to the glass with a heavy
implement to create an opening large enough for a person to pass through. It is the rare criminal who
hangs around long enough to gain entry, especially if your residence is equipped with a security
alarm system. The heaviest duty GLASS-GARD film meets the rigorous European DIN A-1 and
A-3 impact resistance standards.

Helps Tame Nature's Fury. The tremendous windspeed of hurricanes and tornadoes, and the
wind borne debris that accompany them, can blow out window glass and leave an opening through
which wind and rain can wreak havoc to a home's interior. Earthquake tremors also frequently
shatter window glass miles from the epicenter. Shattered glass can become dangerous projectiles
that pose serious danger to those inside, and increases the risk of injuries during evacuation after a
GLASS-GARD window films hold window glass in place after breakage, keeping out the weather
elements and reducing the chances of personal injury and property damage. Unlike storm shutters or
simple plywood window coverings that must be put into place in advance of a forecasted storm,
GLASS-GARD films are on duty 24 hours a day and can therefore cope with natural disasters that
occur with little or no advance warning.
GLASS-GARD film passes the Dade County Small Missile Impact Test, a standard created after
the devastation created in Southeast Florida by Hurricane Andrew in 1992.
GLASS-GARD films are available in varying thicknesses depending on your safety and security
objectives. GLASS-GARD films come in clear versions, which are virtually invisible after proper
installation, and in tinted versions that offer as a bonus, the solar control benefits of SUN-GARD
