The Panorama Sterling® series provides extraordinary solar control while admitting higher levels of visible light. Ranging from barely noticeable tint to darker shades, these films have a subtle reflective finish from the outside.
The Dual Reflective Panorama Slate series maximizes your views with reduced interior and exterior reflectance. Your privacy is increased during the day, while nighttime reflectivity is reduced for uncompromised views out at night.
Panorama Safety Films
From severe weather to burglary and vandalism, threats to human safety and property are on the rise. Solar Gard Panorama safety and security window films are stronger, more durable films that provide an extra layer of protection to your home. Specially designed to absorb shock and hold shattered glass in place, Panorama not only protects people from flying shards, but also provides a barrier against break-ins and interior damage.
Panorama 8 Mil Hilite for extra security in a safety film. It provides the same exceptional solor control, but retains broken glass shards whether broken accidentally by your children, shattered by wind-driven debris in a storm,
or broken intentionally by a thief.

Why should you tint your home?
- Protect Your Health – Window film blocks 99.9% of the sun’s damaging UV rays which helps to protect you and your family from skin and vision problems.
- Prevent Fading – Tinting the windows in your home helps prevent the furniture, flooring, and other elements in your home from fading over time due to sun damage. From artwork to documents to upholstery, the sun’s rays can do a number on your things. Window film treatments will still let in most all of the pleasant visible spectrum of light while blocking the damaging ultraviolet rays. Tinting also helps to reduce glare on your television and / or computer screen during the daylight hours, making your work or relaxation that much more pleasant.
- Home Safety – Applying window film can increase saftey and security in the event of forced entry. We offer a variety of safety/security window films designed to help hold glass fragments together if a window breaks.
- Privacy – Some window films are designed to keep unwanted eyes from seeing into your home to increase the privacy of areas in your home while still allowing you to see out.
- Decreased Cooling Costs – Window films with UV protection can reduce the accumulation of heat in your home by up to 80%, making your home cooler and more comfortable. This may lead to drastically reduced energy costs.
Window film works to diminish the sun’s UV rays and increase fade reduction while absorbing other areas of energy, which works to significantly reduce solar radiation that permeates throughout the space. Keep in mind these results may vary based on the kind of window film that’s actually installed.
Just a few small degrees in temperature fluctuation can generate as much 25 percent in savings from reducing the warmth and light of the sun by using eco-friendly Henderson and Las Vegas residential window tinting. Overall, it takes a great deal of energy to adequately eliminate the excessive warmth out of a room through an air conditioning system. Tinted windows can help ease the load of air conditioning units during the peak times of summer enough to actually allow the user to turn the entire unit off or to even install a less expensive system altogether. Window film will reduce the uncomfortable heat and glare while increasing your energy savings and adding to your overall comfort level by incorporating energy efficient commercial and residential window tinting in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Science Behind Efficient Window Film
The transfer or movement of warmth from one area of high temperature to another cooler area is what’s known as ‘heat transfer’. Heat transfer constantly flows from warm air to cold air. If there’s not a tangible difference in temperature, warmth will not transfer, or move.
Basically, there are three different kinds of warmth, or temperature transfer: Convection, Conduction, and Radiation. With regards to window film, radiation is the most significant way to transfer warmth due to how it transmits infrared waves, which is exactly why people call ‘solar energy’, ‘solar radiation’.
The solar energy that penetrates a window is transmitted or transferred through infrared waves. Radiant energy is then converted into warmth once it comes in contact with objects or people. If the transfer of energy is blocked, you can effectively stop it from developing into heat since it never gets the chance to come in contact with an object or person. Window film works to successfully disrupt this energy transfer by reflecting it back out and away from the window and therefore keeps the contents of the interior cool and comfortable.
Other Benefits of Window Tinting Homes and Businesses
In addition to saving energy and making a positive impact on the overall environment, “green” window tinting can literally enhance the comfort level of the room by decreasing temperature, reducing bothersome glare, and also deflecting 99 percent of dangerous UV radiation; whereby it can greatly reduce the risk of causing skin cancer and other health conditions subsequently encouraged by solar radiation.
What is Solar Energy Transmission and Why Does it Matter?
Solar energy transmission is essentially the percentage breakdown of solar energy: UV + near infrared + visible light, which is what literally passes through a window pane. Absorption is how much solar energy is absorbed in relation to the total amount of solar energy, while reflection is the percentage of solar energy that’s reflected back outside to its source.
By installing window film on the interior of a window, those key proportions are dramatically changed by increasing absorption and reflecting energy. This process is directly related to how much solar warmth is reduced and thus transmitted in a room. The window film properties radically impact the manner in which absorption, reflection, and transmission takes place.
How Window Film Affects Your ROI
Recent studies have illustrated the number of times that window film and tinting have affected a homeowner’s or company’s ROI (return on investment), especially by tinting or installing window film on the South, West, and East facing windows. Considered one of the hottest climates found anywhere in the U.S., Las Vegas’s many commercial businesses and residential homes utilize the key benefits of solar window tinting and film to cost-effectively save energy by diminishing UV rays and heat glare while making the entire building substantially more energy efficient overall.
Energy efficient window film is offered in a variety of different types to suit every need. Some window films and tints are more reflective in general and work to block a considerable amount of glare while greatly reducing huge amounts of hot solar energy. Other kinds of window films save energy by blocking warmth in addition to maintaining a higher degree of visible light transmittance (VLT), which is somewhat less reflective on the exterior of a window glass pane.
