Through years of experience we have selected our range of films to satisfy our customers needs. The Heat/Fade control films can be summarized in two categories. Traditional and Ceramic. The descriptions and high points are below.
We proudly carry the full lines of film from Huper Optik, Suntek, and Sunguard.
Traditional Films (metal-based):
Our Traditional Films are available in a wide variety of shades and thicknesses, including films so light they are virtually invisible. All of which help reduce energy bills, increase occupant comfort and protect draperies, carpets and furnishings from pre-mature fading. Our selected films can do this because they reject 99.9% percent of damaging ultraviolet and a significant amount of solar heat energy. In addition to excellent solar control properties they provide increased levels of safety because they help hold glass together in case of an accident or storm. These films are backed by a manufacturers Lifetime Warranty! We offer two premium Reflective Film technologies to meet a wide range of individual needs. Traditional films offer the same reflectivity inside and outside. While our Premium Dual-Reflective films offer low interior visibility to improve interior views.
Ceramic Films (metal and dye free):
Ceramic Based (multi-ply) films are a popular recommended window film for the the San Diego area. No dyes or metals are used in producing these films. Multi-Ply Ceramic films give glass a natural tinted look with great performance and excellent overall clarity. Ceramic-Based Films appear much less reflective because of the inherent nature of ceramics. This low reflectivity is a blessing for Homes with night views as these films have the most favorable combination of visible light transmission with low reflectance and high heat rejection on the market. For homeowners living near an ocean environment, Ceramic Films are a smart choice. The salty air environment can take a toll on "High Performance" Films and introduce corrosion problems where a Ceramic film is designed to withstand these conditions. Because Ceramic materials dissipate heat at a much faster rate such as the Ceramic Tiles on a Space Shuttle, the higher absorption rate isn't an issue when considering using these films for dual-pane windows. All our Ceramic films are "Dual-Pane Safe". In our gallery page we have many examples of a Multi-Ply Ceramic installations. Notice how these windows do not have that Silver "Tin Foil" look. Homeowner associations around the nation are quick to approve our Premium Multi-Ply Ceramic Films.

Take caution to Single-Ply ceramic films, although these films may have their place, they appear more reflective then the patented multi-layer Ceramic's.
