Cooler Tampa Bay Schools Thanks To Window Film

When our local high school recognized just how uncomfortable their entry way was getting every afternoon they considered all options.

Their best alternative was Advanced Film Solutions and our LLumar solar control window film.

Our installation team coated their glass with a thin film that factors out more than 75% of the total solar energy from entering the facility.

Glare was reduced by 85% and the UV is nearly eliminated by 99.9%

Now students and faculty are cooler and far more comfortable while their AC costs are reduced by nearly 50%!

The clarity of the application is outstanding and we received an A on this examination!

Land O’ Lakes High School is cooler and comfortable and your school, office or home can also make the grade thanks to Advanced Film Solutions.

Window Tinting The Answer For Your Home Builders Mistake

It wasn’t an intentional mistake that your home builder made when they determined what type of glass would be included in your brand new home.

They were likely hoping to make your Florida home bright and inviting.

If you have a gulf or lake view they were counting on this to motivate a sale.

Your new home does provide that view but there was an unintentional consequence:

  • Glare

  • Heat

  • Fading

  • Loss of privacy

  • Easy entry for burglars

  • Ridiculously high cooling costs!

If you are rolling in cash and price is no object; you should call a window replacement company who will charge thousands of dollar a window. While you are at it, don’t forget that oil change on the Maserati!

There is a smarter, affordable and super effective way to solve these problems:

Your hazy days will end immediately and your home will become comfortable and energy efficient.

Eastman Advanced Film Solutions Comparison 3M Window Film

Advanced Film Solutions represents Eastman Chemicals Vista, EnerLogic, LLumar, Huper Optik and SunTek Window Film throughout West and Central Florida.

22971784075_26eb1cecb4_z

We compete against 3M window film agents sold at Home Depot kiosks, window cleaning franchises  and 3M dealers.

Many consumers are familiar with 3M thanks to their Scotch Tape and Post-It Notes. We also assume many consumers are familiar with Eastman given their history and prior connection to Eastman Kodak.

What may be less known is the Eastman superiority in product depth and innovation is the window film, window tinting marketplace.

It is this distinct advantage in product choices and performance that provide Advanced Film Solutions with our competitive advantage over the limited 3M window film portfolio.

Window Film designed for commercial and residential clients covers a wide array of requirements. Both 3M and Eastman have documented performance expectations through the NFRC.

Solar films:

Window films designed to factor out heat, glare and UV are available in multiple light transmissions and appearance.

Eastman has a wide assortment of reflective films including silver and bronze in a wide range.

4way

3M is limited to one darker silver choice.

Eastman has dozens of dual reflective films also available in a wide range of light transmissions.

3M is limited to a scant number of 3 choices in their Night Vision mix. Vista and LLumar have 6 X  the number of choices and apples to apples the Eastman films stop more heat.

Eastman has a huge advantage in non-metallic IR heat blocking choices including Vista ceramic and Huper Optik patented ceramic and spectrally selective films. These are coatings that won’t alter the appearance of your windows.

enerlogic

The Eastman adhesives offer superior clarity and performance.

Low E: Eastman EnerLogic has been solving winter and summer energy savings for several years. Our EnerLogic 35 and EnerLogic 70 work as a heat mirror and have been installed on homes and offices on scores of home and businesses throughout the USA.

Vista-Specs

3M recently launched their version of a light Low e film that doesn’t quite measure up to our EnerLogic 70 and they have no alternative to the higher heat rejecting EnerLogic 35.

Comparing 3M Window Film Vs. Eastman For Tampa Bay Homes

Advanced Film Solutions recently exhibited at the Tampa Bay Home Show and we were able to demonstrate the superior performance and alternatives in direct comparison to 3M window film.

Eastman Chemical is the world leader in window film sales and technology. The Eastman portfolio covers the LLumar, Vista, Huper Optik and Sun Tek lines that offer consumers 6 times the number of choices; all documented with NFRC ratings.

Our Huper Optik ceramic non reflective films are ideal for deed restricted communities. These coatings are less reflective than glass and are available in darker light transmissions that lower glare and block more heat than the 3M dyed prestige films.

Huper Optik has no dyes whatsoever so there won’t be any haze or color change.

Eastman Vista and LLumar offer a wider array of dual reflective coatings in dozens of choices while 3M is limited to just a handful.

12992_618168704883271_1326451465_n

Our Security solar films are the standard for commercial, residential and government projects. All of our choices in blast rated films are 8 ML thick and we have silver, neutral, dual reflective and non reflective coatings.

Our EnerLogic Low E film has been lowering cooling and heating costs for 6 years. 3M has recently introduced their version of our EnerLogic 70 and our EnerLogic 35 blocks nearly 76% of the summer heat while their coating can only filter 49%!
