“There has been a significant reduction in the number of heat related complaints from visitors used to a cooler climate.”
Longitude 131° is located in the heart of Australia’s red centre in the Northern Territory. With panoramic views of Uluru (Ayers Rock), it is described as being one of Australia’s premier luxury 5 star resorts.
“When Longitude131° contacted us” recalls Solar Gard® dealer Brian Shearn of Alice Tinting, “They were looking to increase comfort levels in their premium luxury tents to combat the 40 degrees Celsius temperatures, and an environmentally sustainable option was top of mind”.
Brian recommended a mix of Solar Gard Sterling 20 and Sterling 50 as the ideal films to cut up to 75% of the unwanted heat; another advantage was the ability to increase guest privacy. “The resort is frequented by celebrity guests, so the added benefit of increasing privacy while maintaining the iconic views really impressed Longitude 131° management” comments Brian.
The General Manager of Longitude 131°, Mr Tapa Tibble is thrilled with the result. There has been a significant reduction in the number of heat related complaints from visitors used to a cooler climate, and, according to Brian, Mr Tibble is particularly happy that the film didn’t change the aesthetic look of the resort. Mr Tibble has also noted a reduction in glare, hot spots, utility costs and energy consumption.

Why use Solar Gard?
When asked why he prefers Solar Gard products, Brian confidently stated “We have been tinting in the harshest conditions in Australia for over 20 years. A diverse demand for window film including multi-million dollar resorts, mining sites, machinery, remote communities and everything in between. We have tried other brands more than once but have learned our lesson; it’s quite simple…Solar Gard does the distance.”
“No other film performs better, lasts longer and is easier to work with than Solar Gard” he concluded.
