Solar Control Window Tinting swathes panes in professional films that diffuse sunlight and maintain even-keeled climates in cars, homes, and offices. Residential and commercial windows don sheer or dense privacy films from brands such as 3M and Piper, which block up to 99% of UV rays, trap warmth in the winter, and block heat in the summer, keeping energy consumption in check and environments comfortable. The coatings also protect art and upholstery from sun damage, and can reduce the number of flying shards should storms or soprano houseguests shatter windows.
Solar Control’s techs apply the same surface savvy to car windows, precision-cutting film to fit individual panes or covering vulnerable auto paint with weather-resistant urethane film. While technicians work on rides at the company's headquarters, drivers can settle into plush couches, peruse satellite TV channels, and join a free WiFi network in the waiting room.
That Stereo Shop's staff specializes in modern auto integration, leveraging their expertise to equip cars with audio, video, and security upgrades.

GPS navigation systems, security alarms, and remote starters from CompuStar further equip motorists with gadgetry that enables smooth, worry-free commutes.
Lest exteriors feel left out, technicians outfit windows in SunTek tinted films that add style to the car and keep the cabin's high-tech equipment out of sight and out of UV rays. They also dress vehicles in vinyl graphics and banners that portray company advertisements.
Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
Sunlight streams in through the large windows of Kiln-N-Time's studio, where amateur artists paint canvases and throw pottery in a celebration of self expression. For a simple craft project, guests can grab a pre-made ceramic vase, mug, or bowl and embellish it with sassy polka dots, a coffee-complementing hue, or text of the answer to life's ultimate question. More in-depth projects see artists building their pottery from scratch with a lump of clay and pottery wheels or painting flowers and beach landscapes during BYOB sessions. The studio can also perform restoration and conservation work on art pieces or create custom tiles for homes.
