….fortunately for our sake, we applied safety and security window film before we attempted to break it. While the glass did in fact break (which was totally expected) the film help the glass in place (which was also totally expected). Had this been your home or business, this may have helped keep an intruder out and protected your valuables from theft. Now if only we could get more of these test units we may be able to work through some serious anger…………..

We presented our new video last week as shown on YouTube, but now we have it uploaded to it’s own server with some bells and whistles added. We’re pretty excited about the way it turned out! Soon it will be available in the media portion of our website as well. You can view that here – www.solartexinc.com – and the video here:Uncategorized | Leave a comment February 14, 2012
A local company had a big problem…… they had in excess of 400 workstations installed in their new offices and thought that clear glass on all of them would make the area feel open and warm. After all the units were installed they realized they had made a mistake! They now wanted the glass frosted to provide a more private environment for employees to do their work. They were left with 2 options: 1- Absorb a significant cost and re-order the glass with the frosted look or 2 – Hire SolarTex, to retrofit the existing units with a frosted film. We’re glad to report they chase option 2! After seeing a couple of the units completed the project manager reported that the film looked great. We have to agree with that, and we’re glad we could help! We love to help people solve problems. Images below:

The sun can often reek more havoc in the Winter than in the Summer. The lower angles of winter daylighting can be more intense for some elevations and when coupled with light reflecting off remaining snow, the glare can be overwhelming. Many of our films can cut down the harsh light leaving you with a clearer view of the outside, while allowing you to leave your blinds open, and your view unobstructed. The article below references additional reasons to consider window film for your home or business.Residential Window Film Applications, Solar Window Film, Sun Control Window Film, window film, Window Tint | Leave a comment January 19, 2012
Here’s a great article written by the executive director of the IWFA (International Window Film Association). Granted, he may be a little biased (and so are we), but none-the-less the points made in the article are all valid. The article appeared in a recent issue of Sustainable Facility.

We recently did some work for a local company that does work that we don’t really understand! Despite our lack of love for chemistry, we did love the work we were able to complete for them. It adds a nice touch of privacy to their cubicle walls while tying in the theme of what they do. Photos are posted below.
