Advanced Film Solutions has been protecting schools and day care centers throughout Tampa Bay, Orlando and Sarasota with security glazing window film.

These transparent coatings are thicker and the adhesive stronger than standard solar control window film.

Typically 8 ML thick, security glazing window film is designed for maximum impact strength, tensile strength and puncture resistance.

There are instances when a privacy security film should be considered during a lock down event or safe room situation. These films will provide visibility from the interior to the street but prevent targeting from the exterior.

The safety administrators for these institutions prefer the covert nature of these coatings. The appearance of the school’s windows can remain unchanged or if they prefer a lightly tinted coating for energy savings and glare reduction.

The objective is to keep the “bad guys” out and security glazing window film maintains the window envelope. These films are the very same coatings used on the US Capitol Building and embassies throughout the world.

Tampa, Orlando, Bradenton Protective Glazing Window Film

We are all painfully familiar with the series of threats, both real and inferred, targeting religious institutions across the USA.

These threats are not isolated to a specific religious group or category of school.

Childcare Centers, K-12 as well as community colleges and universities face dangerous times and concerned communities are taking proactive measures to increase people and asset protection.

Advanced Film Solutions is one of Florida’s leading security protective glazing window film installation companies.  We have protected Universities, child care centers and religious institutions and Houses of Worship throughout the region.

Protective glazing films are employed by the Federal Government to protect Military personnel, Federal buildings, state and local governments and landmark building that may be the target of terrorism threats.

These coatings meet strict standards and documented, tested capabilities to withstand blast and intrusion.

Our team professionally installs these coatings to the interior (and exterior in some cases) of the building envelope on the exterior facing windows and doors. Attachment systems are utilized to fix the film installation to building frames thus creating a complete system that bonds the glass in place.

Shatter resistant coatings are available in clear as well as combination solar iterations that will lower interior temperatures, provide privacy and lower monthly electric cooling costs.

These invisible systems are cost effective and offer superior life saving benefits.

Reflective Vs. Non-Reflective Window Film – How To Decide?

One of the key factors that consumers have to address when selecting window film is whether to have a reflective coating or a non-reflective coating applied to their windows and sliders.

This is particularly important for the aesthetic appearance of the windows from the exterior perspective.

Reflective films: More accurately today’s film is actually dual reflective. The exterior appearance is reflective while the interior is less reflective; enabling unobstructed views day or night.

Reflective films provide additional daytime privacy than the non reflective choices. These films are typically safe for dual pane non tempered glass as well as single pane annealed glass.

There are many choices of security solar films that can economically protect your home from smash and grab while lowering cooling costs.

Advanced Film Solutions has a wide portfolio of dual reflective films manufactured by Eastman Chemicals.

These choices include Vista Film and LLumar in light transmissions that range from very dark to light.

Non-reflective Films:

Non reflective films are ideal for deed restricted communities, condominiums and any home where a reflective appearance is not preferred.

Ceramic coatings like Huper Optik are designed to keep out heat without altering the look of the glass. These films are factoring out visible light as well as IR wavelengths.

All Advanced Film Solutions installations have a lifetime warranty and our team of installers has earned our company six straight Super Service Awards from Angie’s List
