Fade Protection

More factors contribute to fading than most consumers are aware. 40% of fading is caused by UV rays. 25% is caused by solar heat, and 25% is caused by visible light. The sun is a significant source of these factors, all of which can be significantly reduced with Llumar and Vista window tinting films.

Energy Savings

Energy continues to become more scarce and valuable. One of the biggest losses of energy from your home occurs through your windows. Glass, by its very nature, is highly emissive. This means that instead of reflecting energy, glass absorbs it and then allows it to pass through. Energy always flows from a high energy state to a low energy state.  When it is warmer outside and cooler inside, the energy (heat) is transmitted through the windows to the inside of your home. Contrarily, when it is warmer inside and cooler outside, the energy (heat) is transmitted through the windows to the outside. All of this occurs at your expense. Applying solar control window film makes the glass less emissive. Even if you have “Low-E” window glass, properly installed window film will further enhance energy savings and the effectiveness the glazing system to provide a more effective return on your investment while protecting your home’s interiors.

Glare Reduction

Glare from windows can be more problematic than having difficulty watching an afternoon Tigers game on television. Viewing through glass exposed to the sun makes it difficult to obtain a clearly defined view through the glass, and can make rooms unusable during certain times of the day.  Direct sunlight from skylights can create reflection problems from tables, floors and kitchen countertops. Llumar & Vista window tinting films can reject up to 93% of window glare, and offer a visually crisp view through your glass. Take control of your home’s environment, and let your windows wear the sunglasses instead of you.

Enhanced View

We have windows in our homes for a good reason. Glare reducing window films offer an unobtrusive crisp, sharpened image through windows. Although window treatments add a decorative element, they certainly diminish the view. Window tinting films can relieve window treatments from being relied upon for solar protection. Enjoy an enhanced view whenever you want to knowing you are protected with window film.


Metallized and neutral window films by Vista & Llumar can offer daytime privacy by means of exterior reflectance. These films are available in a wide variety of shades, color tones and reflectivity levels depending on each of our clients’ desires and expectations. If you live in a high traffic area, have a home with close neighbors or just enjoy watching nature without disturbing the animals, then metallized privacy window films may be a valuable addition to the other added benefits of window tinting films.


  • Dramatically improve the comfort level of your indoor living space while also making a dramatic outdoor style statement. This film has reflective technology on two sides to provide a high level of heat, glare and UV control that keeps you at ease in any room, at any time of day. Reflective technology also gives exterior windows a pleasingly uniform, contemporary look. A selection of silver, gold, bronze, blue and gray shades allows you to fine-tune for the perfect complement to your home’s masonry, siding, roof and landscaping.

  • If you like the benefits of reflective film but would rather see what’s outside your windows than a reflection of yourself, this film is for you. Dual-reflective film technology pairs a mirrored exterior side with a more subtle interior side, providing superior solar control while maintaining outside views after dark. It’s also able to block 99% of the sun’s undesirable UV rays, keep you feeling cool, and block heat so your air conditioner runs less. Choose your favorite from a range of pleasant, homey hues.

  • Harmony is an advanced film designed to enhance home life, intelligently marrying sophisticated features with a look that’s extremely low in reflectivity.With a premium combination of proprietary metals and nano-ceramic technology, Harmony transforms your love-hate relationship with sunlight. Harmony helps make hot spots virtually disappear, soothes eyes with glare reduction, and eases concern about UV rays. Plus, every shade is soft, subtle and offers superior optical clarity. We recommend Harmony for coastal areas, historic homes, to meet neighborhood association guidelines, and for homeowners who don’t want a change in exterior style.

  • Featuring neutral, warm gray hues and advanced technology, Vista™ Ceramic Film stealthily boosts comfort and protection from harmful UV rays. It’s an ideal choice when you love the look of your existing windows inside and out, but not the performance. The secret to this film’s success is nano-ceramic technology. This state-of-the-art manufacturing process applies a whisper-thin layer of ceramic to film, for solar control that’s completely metal-free. This delivers the lowest possible degree of visible reflectivity, plus the strength to resist salt corrosion in coastal areas.

  • Deluxe window film has many similarities to our reflective films, but without the mirror-like appearance. It effectively solves comfort problems, helps save energy, and blocks 99% of harmful UV rays. It’s also a design solution that creates a pleasing, uniform look for buildings that seem cluttered from the exterior, due to views of tenants’ mismatched window treatments. How does Deluxe film deliver significant solar and aesthetic benefits without reflection? The simple answer is sophisticated shading. It gives this series of films a flat, non-reflective look that disguises without giving window glass a metallic quality.

  • Neutral window films may be less reflective and less attention getting, but they pack a powerful punch when it comes to controlling the sun’s effects. After installation, even areas next to large windows feel noticeably cooler. Plus, 99% of UV rays can’t harm people or furnishings, and annoying glare won’t interfere with comfort or productivity. Technically speaking, neutral window film provides “uniform light transmission without any strong color tone.” What this really means, though, is that neutral film doesn’t interfere with the lovely way sunshine lights up a space.
