Oh, summer sunshine. You make us smile, you make us crave iced coffee … you make us sweat like pro athletes.

With a range of glare- and heat-blocking strengths, you might even be set for that gotta-wear-shades south-facing window.

Use adhesive film for long-wearing projects or static cling for more flexibility — either way, installation is easy. Watch the process here:
