Case Study: Glare, Glare, Glare!
The Ruby Tuesday Restaurant of Branson Missouri designed five foot by five foot glass windows to bring light, views, and an outdoor ambiance to the restaurant. However, intense glare, heat and reflections off parked automobiles made dining uncomfortable and at times next to impossible.
Fabric shades were installed but darkened the dining area and were a constant source of problems to the staff, who had to raise and lower them according to the position of the sun and the requests of the customers. The solution? VISTA Window Film.

Case Study: Making Light of Home Work with Window Film
Publicity professional Sophie Ryan faced a common problem as she moved her business into her home. Ryan had a spare bedroom. However the room had one big problem. It had large windows that faced the East which afforded a magnificent view of the East River and Long Island. But the windows also allowed strong sunlight to pour though the glass from dawn to dusk.
Apart from the fading problems caused by the sun's ultraviolet light and heat build up, the glare made the office and computer impossible to use. During the day, the computer screen became almost unreadable and the television screen faded into obscurity.

Case Study: Terminal Heat and Glare Terminated
In the past, passengers who traveled through the main terminal at Dulles International Airport suffered in the summer, when temperatures reached into the high 90's with uncomfortable heat and eye-straining glare. More than sixteen million passengers use the terminal annually, with some four million coming from overseas, which makes for a lot of hot and bothered travelers!
Not only was a huge amount of glass integrated into the complex design but also the many individual pieces were crafted to an irregular configuration. The task was to incorporate solar control that diminished heat and glare in the individual segments of this aesthetically pleasing, but complicated glass arrangement. The solution? Vista V33 SR CDF Soft Horizons Window Film.
