Tampa Fade Protection Window Film. Taming The Florida Sun

Clear glass may have  seemed wonderful when you moved into your home.

The view was perfect and the openness and bright light made your paintings and wood floors really jump out.

Unfortunately the longer your furnishings are exposed to unfiltered light; the fast these valuable possessions begin to fade.

It’s a deadly trio of factors that ruins your floors and leather couch.

UV: Unfiltered UV promotes fading and the harmful nature of UV is well documented.

All Advanced Film Solutions solar control window films block 99.9% of these rays.

Heat: The amount of heat streaming through your glass is the next third of your problem. darker is better for fade protection and thanks to dozens of choices your home need not be dark or uninviting.

Light: the amount of light is the final third of the problem.

Advanced Film Solutions Eastman Films can filter out up to 95% of the visible light. This might be ideal for a bedroom but most homeowners prefer lighter coatings that block 60-85% of the visible light.

Protect People & Assets With Florida’s 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!
