Advanced Film Solutions Security Film Comparison Vs. 3M

When the facility managers at a large Orlando complex recognized the value of a security solar window film installation on their curtain wall their initial inclination was to look at 3M.

The 3M specification indicated their 8 ML shatter film with a solar component for east and west facing glass.

Advanced Film Solutions was able to communicate the greater value for the installation of Eastman Chemical LLumar Vista Solar security film.

The advantages of the Advanced Film Solutions was higher solar filtering properties, equal or greater puncture and tensile strength and no loss in any documented independent shatter film security life safety standard.

Furthermore, the proposed and accepted attachment standard wet sealant is an industry and government accepted standard.

Advanced Film Solutions is unique in our ability to provide superior installations of window film for commercial and government buildings throughout Florida.

Our team of experts meets all our client’s requirements in terms of timeliness, as well as the desired safety improvement at the best value in the industry.

The Eastman portfolio includes 10 X the number of choices as compared to the extremely limited 3M portfolio. Here again the LLumar, Vista shatter control films never takes a step backward as directly compared to whatever 3M film is being proposed.

This level playing field based on GSA, Department of Defense, Army Corps of Engineers and building codes is our distinct advantage.

If the client’s perception is that 3M is the best choice that perception can only be based on the brand recognition rather than the actual field efficacy of the competitive films Advanced Film Solutions offers.

The same advantage holds for residential installations of solar clear or solar security combination films.

Tips For Selecting Florida Heat Control UV Window Film, Choices Matter

Advanced Film Solutions is Florida’s leading residential and commercial window film installation company.

We have demonstrated our capabilities throughout the eleven years and 15,000 installations since we launched our company.

Our experience prior to establishing Advanced Film Solutions was spent at 3M Company where we developed our window film experience as National Sales Manager.

Florida home and business owners have a unique set of requirements. We obviously have more heat, glare and sun days than any other region of the country.

Our goal was to separate ourselves from the competition by offering our clients the very best heat rejecting solutions. This is more than a subjective position. There are fundamental performance characteristics of window film that position one window film solution as a superior choice compared to another.

These points of superior performance cover a wide array of variables:

  • Durability of the adhesives.
  • Clarity of the finished installed coating.
  • The appearance of the film in terms of reflectivity or non-reflectivity.
  • The NFRC rating of the film and anticipated performance, independently lab tested and certified.
  • The impact strength, puncture strength, etc, of the solar and clear security film

We know the advantages of one solution over another. That’s why we offer multiple brand and product choices to match our customer’s requirements to their practical and aesthetic objectives.

In terms of installation capabilities we were determined to employ the very best installers with a proven track record and years of experience.

We are fortunate to have the very best installation team in Florida including two of the top eight installers in the world tinting competition held in West Palm Beach!

Fighting heat, glare and UV damage takes the very best window film and the top of the line installations.

Glass Hazard Safety Security Window Film, Tampa Bay, Orlando, Sarasota

We look through windows every day, but it’s easy to overlook the safety risks they present.

When windows or sliders shatter, serious injuries can result.

Injuries can occur from opening or closing the window or pushing on it too hard; sometimes they occur without any contact at all.

Use Shatter Retention Window Film to Reduce the Risk of Shattering

The aftermarket  installation of thick clear or solar safety film in windows with which impact is likely, such as floor-length windows, sliders, doors containing glass, or windows in common areas of residence halls or crowded hallways is critically important.

Advanced Film Solutions is expert in the proper installation and anchoring of shatter film. This specialized capability has been acquired over decades of installation experience.  It is a serious obligation to leave every installation with the assurance that the window film was properly installed according to manufacturers specifications.

The choice of film:

Advanced Film Solutions has successfully installed shatter film at thousands of homes and offices, retail stores and educational institutions to name a few.

Our experience at 3M for 33 years and more recently the last 13 years since we launched our family owned window film dealership.

We have developed a long respectful relationship with multiple security film manufacturers all of whom have demonstrated safety efficacy and optical clarity and long-term durability.

Beyond that; these safety films have all met the objective criteria of independent testing conducted by Federal agencies like the GSA and Department of Defense.  The health and life safety performance of the Eastman, Madico, Saint-Gobain, Avery Dennison and 3M are equivalent.

The differences are specifically related to the aesthetic variations including light transmission, clarity, reflectivity from the exterior view or the interior view.

Our experience and industry knowledge guide our consulting direction and we have found the LLumar and Vista security and solar films as the most flexible in meeting client expectations. This is not to say hat these films meet a higher safety level but rather these films match our client’s aesthetic preferences.

Glass safety in homes and commercial government buildings is a critical issue.

Schools, religious institutions, retail stores and government buildings have all employed these shatter films to protect students, teachers, parishioners and visitors.

The time to implement glass protection window film is now!

Advanced Film Solutions School Campus Security Window Film

Glass safety enhancement with Advanced Film Solutions shatter resistant window film.

The unfortunate reality in the USA is a high rate of shooting incidents at schools.

This is the harsh reality and whatever one’s political persuasion concerning weapons, mental health and second amendment debates; our primary consideration is student and teacher protection.

One significant aspect of a security approach beyond law enforcement or onsite security personnel is an increase in perimeter protection and access.

Glass is the weakest point of entry for any facility.

Thicker safety films when properly installed and attached to the window frames have a documented improvement for student protection.

Independent testing throughout the decades by the Federal government through the GSA, Army Corp of Engineering and the Department of Defense have demonstrated the efficacy of these films.

Advanced Film Solutions has built a team of expert installers who are dedicated to performing the best possible installations.

The shatter protection window film we provide are manufactured by the leaders in the window film industry.

These films meet the stringent requirements for force protection and fragment retention and impact. All these films we provide have met these standards.

There are differences in appearance between these films that are primarily based upon the solar safety combined films. This type of glass safety film combines a thin film solution in combination with a thick shatter film.

The nuances in appearance include the appearance of the shatter film, privacy level and reflectivity.

This aesthetic consideration is important when school safety administrators determine what type of “look” they want for their school.

Privacy considerations become critical for keeping potential threats from observing what is happening within the school. High reflective films will prevent scoping and simultaneously lower interior glare and heat which is a great concern for schools in warmer climates.

Advanced Film Solutions offers the most choices in shatter film appearance while maintaining the highest level of protection.
