Year-Round Window Film Keeps the Heat Out of Your Home
No matter if your interest is lowering cooling and heating costs by reducing solar heat coming through windows, eliminating hot and cold spots, or preventing heat from escaping during the winter, Southern Glass Protection has an energy saving window film made especially for you.
Window film is applied to existing glass in your windows and doors in order to reduce peak demand during hot months, reducing the need for your air conditioner to run excessively to keep a comfortable temperature. Even just a few degrees in temperature reduction can have a dramatic reduction in energy costs. And low-e window films can help to retain heat in cooler months, lessening the need for heating.

Reduce Unwanted Heat and Glare with Window Tint in South Florida
Make Your Home Comfortable with Heat and Glare Reduction
Did you know?
Most heat control window films feature ultra-thin layers of metal, which act as infrared (solar heat) reflectors or absorbers and visible light filters. Don’t worry—these layers are so thin that they are transparent, so they block the heat but not your view.
For Energy Savings & Heat and Glare Reduction in South Florida, Look No Further than Southern Glass Protection
Window film not only provides heat control to create a comfortable home, it reduces glare caused by the sun’s rays. Daylight casts a harsh glare on your TV or computer, causing eye strain and interfering with viewing enjoyment. But there’s no need to draw the curtains to get rid of the glare.
Vista Heat Control Home Window Tinting provides a quick and affordable solution to get rid of distracting glare. Window film is more than just a tint; it’s an advanced technology which lets in natural light while reducing glare up to 87%, all while improving windows’ insulating properties.
Enjoy both views with window film for heat and glare reduction by Southern Glass Protection.
UV Window Protection Film
Blocks up to 99.9% Ultraviolet Rays
Did you know that the sun’s harmful rays are not stopped by untreated glass? Deep-penetrating Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays pass straight through glass into your home or office.
UVA rays account for 90% of the sun’s most damaging rays. These rays not only fade your flooring and furnishings, they damage your skin and contribute to wrinkles, photosensitivity, and even skin cancer.
You don’t hesitate to put on sunscreen when spending hours outside, but do you protect you and your family while indoors?
With one out of five Americans diagnosed with skin cancer, who wants to take a chance? You don’t have to live in fear anymore. Vista™ window film for sun protection with UV Shield™ technology was made specifically for indoor sun protection. And don’t worry—the film is microthin and distortion free, so you can enjoy your view without the UV.
UV Window Film Protection Received the Skin Cancer Seal of Recommendation
Vista window film for sun protection is recommended nationwide by physicians as a safe, preventative measure for patients with sun sensitivity, skin-related diseases, and skin cancer. And you can rest assured, because Vista carries the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation.
In fact, many pediatricians, cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and general practitioners nationwide have installed Vista UV Window Film protection in their homes and offices to protect themselves, their families, and their employees.
Don’t take unnecessary risks when it comes to your family’s health. Protect yourselves against harmful UV rays in your home by making Vista Window Film a part of your sun protection routine.
Residential Safety & Security Window Film
Protection for Your Home and Family
You always lock your doors and windows, but your windows’ glass is still the most vulnerable entry point in your home. Window breakage during severe storms and high winds can cause your family and your property significant damage. Protect your home with Vista™ Window Film from flying shards of glass—a major cause of injury and damage during and after storms and natural disasters like hurricanes.
Not only does Vista Safety and Security Film provide protection in severe weather, it can protect your family from accidental glass breakage or an intruder. Safety film holds glass securely in place if an impact should occur.

And because Vista Safety and Security Window Film is micro-thin and invisible, you won’t even know it’s there—until it’s needed most.

Energy Efficient Window Replacement Alternative
Energy Efficient Replacement Window Alternative
Rising energy costs may have you considering purchasing energy-efficient replacement windows. You may already know that most of a home’s energy is lost through windows, and as much as half of a home’s heating and cooling costs can be lost through non-energy efficient windows.
If your windows are damaged or deteriorating, they will still have to be replaced. Do your windows have any of the following?
- Air or moisture leakage
- Failed seals
- Damaged Frames
- Structural Damage
If so, window film installation won’t be a viable option. However, if you have windows still in good condition and your main goal is to increase energy efficiency, window film can be a cost effective replacement window alternative. Rather than spend thousands of dollars on replacement windows, you can enjoy reduced solar heat, lowered cooling costs, and increased energy savings at a fraction of the cost.
Professionally installed Vista™ Window Film can lower cooling costs as much as 50% at as little as one-tenth the cost of window replacement. You may also qualify for energy-saving tax credits.
Avoid Window Replacement with a Cost Effective Replacement Window Alternative
You can reduce your home’s wasted energy with energy-efficient window film. Not only that, you can lower your carbon footprint and help the environment: replacement low-e windows have a carbon footprint 128 to 267 times that of window film. Reduce your energy bill and avoid increasing landfill waste by choosing window film over replacement windows.

Low-e (or low-emissivity) films are best suited for cooler climates to conserve energy.
Neutral window films work to provide moderate heat rejection while keeping a soft, neutral appearance. Lighter versions are recommended for showrooms or high-visibility display windows.
While remaining virtually invisible, Spectrally Selective Films work to let in desirable daylight while still blocking harmful UV rays and unwanted heat. Ideal for storefronts, commercial buildings, offices, and homes that require minimal light control with maximum heat rejection.
Dual-reflective films conserve energy, greatly reduce glare, and reject harmful UV light while still maintaining outside views. These films are shiny (reflective) on the outside in order to provide maximum heat rejection. The inside surface is less reflective in order to reduce interior reflection of artificial lighting after dark.
Maximum performance window film with very low interior and exterior reflectivity (shininess).
A clear window film designed to hold broken glass together in the frame if/when an impact occurs. It also helps slow an intruder’s entry through glass, giving your family or building occupants valuable time to get to safety.
