Solar Gard – Flat Glass

Available exclusively to Panorama dealers, Solar Gard’s ultimate energy-efficient window film, Ecolux, is now available in 48″ x 100′ rolls!

Commercial tint, or ‘Flat Glass‘ as it is commonly called, is a fast growing market.  If you are already doing automotive tint, why not add Flat Glass to your business offerings?


Here are a few thoughts on Flat Glass as compared to Automotive Tint:Solar Gard Ecolux

  • Automotive Tint is pretty much a mature market.  In many areas, there are so many installers doing automotive tint that it is hard to get the price you deserve.  Flat Glass is a virtually untapped market.  Certainly there is some competition, but not near as much as in Automotive.
  • Automotive Tint requires you to do several cars per day to hit your goals.  Flat Glass often requires only 1 or 2 sales per week, depending on the size of the project.
  • Automotive Tint generally requires you to have a shop to work in.  Flat Glass is a mobile business, often resulting in less overhead and a freer schedule.


What is needed to get started in Flat Glass?

  • It is NOT recommended to take an existing Automotive Tinter and put him to work doing Flat Glass.  It is better to keep him doing what he is already making money at.
  • It IS recommended to get training.  While Flat Glass is in many ways easier than Automotive Tint, the knowledge base and variety of films needed for different applications is much greater – hence training is recommended to ensure you put the right film on the right windows.
