A Simple Solution To The Glare On Your Salt Lake City Buildings Windows


A Case Study Shows Window Film Eliminates Harsh Glares From The Sun

Salt Lake City is a marvelous city known for its gorgeous mountain views and lovely high altitude climate. It attracts new residents from all around the country who wish to have easy access to all things outdoors and a better quality of life. There isn’t much to dislike about this city and certainly a lot to love. While this recreation mecca boasts a high standard of living, a strong economy, and a “thirst for life” attitude, one downfall of living and working at over a mile high is the glare from the sun in homes and offices alike. This case study of a hotel in California shows how window film can make Salt Lake City buildings more inhabitable and at the same time more energy efficient.

SITUATION: A Global Investment firm purchased a large office building in downtown LA. They were told by prior tenants the offices in the building were not the most comfortable because of too much sun exposure. Another issue was the leeching of A/C and heat from the numerous skylights, which in turn drove up utility bills.

SOLUTION: The building owners considered shades or other mechanical applications for blocking sunlight but the cost was extremely high and each solution had its drawbacks. After considerable research, they chose 3M™ Sun Control Window Film because of cost efficiency, sun control effectiveness and few, if any, drawbacks.

RESULT: After a quick and seamless install the building owners and tenants now are able to enjoy the abundance of windows that drew them to the building in the first place. Since the application of window tint, the building is experiencing reduced heat, curbed glare, and low interior reflection. The happy owners said “We’re absolutely thrilled with the way this project turned out. We’re now headquartered in this remarkably beautiful space; and both our employees and clients can focus on the dramatic views, and all of the other benefits, without fighting the heat and glare problems.”
