EXPERT, SEASONED, VETERAN INSTALLERS ON EVERY JOB
Sundown Glass Tinting has a long history of over three decades covering hundreds of homes, government buildings, schools, banks, corporate headquarters, and businesses both large and small, installing the highest quality energy saving solar control and high impact safety/security window films in the industry all over the state of Florida. Our team of professionally trained, seasoned window film technicians come highly recommended and we have a long list of commercial references to back that up. We strive to finish each job in a timely fashion - on time but never rushed. Making sure the glass is clean is the most important part of the installers job. Every square inch of glass is scraped with a razor scraper. Any excess glazing adhesive is then cut from the edges. Any debris will come from the edges and we strive to ensure that the edge of the film is as close to the edge of the glass as possible without collecting any debris. The glass is squeegeed clean, the film is spueegeed onto the glass, the edges trimmed, and then the film is squeegeed clean. The process looks quite simple when you watch an experienced installer do it. However, it’s not as easy as an experienced installer makes it look. We always use clean white drop cloths for the floor and towels for the window sill. We will move any furniture that needs moving and remove and replace any blinds that needs be. Sundown Glass Tinting can also be found on Angie’s List, a very reputable nationwide referral service. We encourage our prospective customers to contact any of our previous customers and ask their opinion. How do you like the film? How do you like the installation? How did you like the service you received? We strive for 100% customer satisfaction. Like any business, occasionally an installation doesn’t go down “like clockwork”. We will miss a beat and something doesn't go quite right. It’s how a company deals with adversity that shows true character. When something doesn’t quite meet our (or your) rigorous standards it is an opportunity to either look like a hero and save the day, or not and look like a real jerk! It’s just a piece of film….. and the labor it takes to replace it verses your satisfaction and all the references Sundown Glass Tinting could be getting...or not. It’s really a no-brainer.

THE MOST TRUSTED WINDOW FILM IN THE WORLD

Choices include films for every conceivable purpose including automotive, energy saving solar control, spectrally selective nano-ceramic, high impact safety and security, exterior, specialty frosted, opaque, colored, decorator, clear UV protection, graffiti protective, even low E.
Is Your Building Energy Efficient?
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that one-third of a building’s cooling load is from solar heat gain through windows, and nearly 75% of existing windows are not energy efficient. LLumar offers an exclusive Energy Audit Process that utilizes widely accepted DOE-2 analytics to analyze how Llumar can improve efficiency to deliver significant savings and rapid payback. The Llumar Energy Audit Process is the only tool in the industry that has been independently verified by the world’s largest energy services company.
Significant Savings. Rapid Payback. Smart Investment.
LLumar energy saving solar control window film can boost the performance of nearly any glazing system, significantly reducing energy consumption and peak demand. Professional energy audits estimate that buildings retrofitted with LLumar energy saving films could realize annual energy savings as high as 15% with improved HVAC efficiency, reduced carbon emissions and an average payback within three years.
Solar control window films reduce heat, glare and damaging ultra violet rays. They are protected by a superior scratch resistant coating to ensure their optical clarity and prevent damage to the film from abrasion. Some are highly reflective and reduce heat gain from solar radiation as much as 80% and reducing energy costs as much as 40%. Our nano-ceramic films are spectrally selective. These films allow more visible light transmission, have higher heat rejection and have a less reflective appearance than metallized films. Many Llumar solar control window films qualify for incentives from TECO and Duke Energy and all of them are recommended products by the Skin Cancer Foundation because they reduce cancer causing ultra violet rays by 99%.
SAFETY AND SECURITY FILM
LLumar Magnum high impact safety and security window films are available either clear or with solar control tinting. They are available in 4, 6,7,8, 11 or 15 mils thick. Our 8 mil film is the most popular as it is the only one that has been tested and has passed the Miami-Dade County Large Missile Impact Test (ASTM E1886 and E1996).. Llumar Magnum, manufactured byCPFilms Inc. is the first film in the industry to have passed these stringent tests and documentation can be found at this link. No 4 mil film has passed this test recognized as the industry standard. For more information regarding safety and security window film misinformation please read this link and make sure that any claims made by security film representatives are backed up with documentation.
ANCHORING (ATTACHMENT) SYSTEMS
One final (and very important) word about safety/ security window films on commercial buildings. Most commercial windows are installed using a rubber weather seal around the edges of the window sealing the window in the frame. Usually, there is NO ADHESIVE between the glass and the metal frame holding the glass. In these situations an anchoring or attachment system of some sort must be used or the simple application of the film is useless because there is nothing holding the glass into the frame when it breaks. Sundown Glass Tinting has experience with a wide variety of anchoring systems. There is no universal system that is best with all window configurations. However, there is almost always one that will fit your particular situation. We will explain the need, explore the available options, make some recommendations and help you decide which one is best for your particular needs.
