Residential / Commercial Window Tint in Reno / Sparks

Sparks Marina

Sparks Marina

We tint it over at the Sparks Marina! – Awesome location here with a view of the Sierras. The only problemwith that is the southwest exposure beating in on the nice hardwood floors. Fortunately this customer was already familiar with the many benefits of window film, namely the 99.9% UV reduction. Llumar DR35 was chosen for its ability to filter not only the UV rays but also 56% of the heat that also contributes to sun damage. Don’t forget about heat’s contribution to fading, you need to reduce the solar transmittance as much as possible! Along with their previous experience with window film, this particular client also knew a thing or two about picking a good window film company and we felt privileged to earn their...
Yankee Candle at Summit Sierra

Yankee Candle at Summit Sierra

I never really gave it much though until one summer when we were getting an extra ordinary amount of calls from retail stores like this one. Yankee Candle is located in the Summit Sierra Mall (Sierra Window Tinting has tinted just about everything [except the Apple Store >:-( ] in Summit Sierra) and they sell, hey wadda ya know, they sell candles! The problem they were having was their inventory (that would be candles) were melting on the shelves! You’d think the simple solution to this would be to “crank up” the A/C and cool the ambient temperature down but things are a little more complex than that. Here’s what is causing the problem… Solar Energy is divided into three main parts, Visible Light, Infra Red, and Ultra Violet. All three of these em spectrum regions contribute to heat. In this case, it is the short wavelength “near infra red” transmitting through the store front windows and subsequently being absorbed by the candles which then in turn gets converted to heat. The heat warms up the candle and well um… you can guess what happens next. So the solution here is not to reduce solar energy by putting a dark reflective ugly film on the glass, then how will customers see what is inside the store? What need to be done is to apply a film that filters as much of the infrared energy out as possible while at the same time allowing plenty of visible light so that customers can see the displays in the store windows. Sierra Window Tinting carries spectrally select smart window films from Hüper...
