Soft Target Glass Hardening; Protect People & Assets With Security Glazing Window Film

Property management and asset protection, security management have a critical responsibility to ensure safety for people and assets at soft target locations.

By soft target we are referring to facilities that may be targeted by extremists for potential explosives where security personnel are not typically employed.

Glass is an ineffective barrier and flying glass shards and debris can become catastrophic during a blast event.

The Federal Government under the auspices of the GSA and Department of Defense have established blast mitigation standards since the Oklahoma City bombing in 1994.

The Glazing protection films installed by Advanced Film Solutions meets these standards and these films provide this level of documented, tested people and asset protection.

It is highly recommended that the film installation is attached to storefront frames using an approved attachment system.

Advanced Film Solutions typically utilizes Dow Corning 995 Structural Silicone which has been tested and approved by the Federal officials including the Army Corps.  of Engineers.

Advanced Film Solutions is flexible in the approved window film brands that meet these standards.

  • Eastman Chemicals LLumar, Vista and SunTek
  • Madico and Madico Sunscape
  • Saint-Gobain’s Armorcoat
  • Johnson Laminating
  • Hanita

There are aesthetic variations between these films but the safety level is equal as all the films represented meet the GSA standards.

Many property and asset protection managers consider solar safety security films that not only provide the life safety benefits but also provide solar heat gain reduction and privacy (reflective combination films.)

We recommend that you consider a free site survey and estimate.

These are difficult times and no one is happy about the need to consider these covert methods for protecting your personnel and assets. Nevertheless; if you are concerned about a potential threat (think religious institution or schools) than these effective methods should be strongly considered!

Every so often we are called in by our manufacturer’s to assist one of their clients who made the unfortunate decision to have a local car tinter apply film on their home. The car tinting film is not designed to withstand the Florida climate on flat glass (home or commercial property)

These folks may offer a low ball price but to coin a phrase “You get what you pay for!”

In one recent home what they got was bubbles and a purple hazy mess after only 3 years.

The car tinter refused to honor any warranty and the manufacturer requested that Advanced Film Solutions rip off that car tinting mess an install a high performance LLumar film in it’s place.

My first point is to highlight the fact that Eastman honored their warranty despite the fact that the wrong film was installed on a high end home. The customer was made completely whole!

My second point is that Advanced Film Solutions was asked to do the heavy lifting by removing all the defective film. We were trusted because we do exactly what we promise our clients we will do every day.

The third point is to follow “Caveat Emptor” Buyer Beware!
