Window Film Conference, 2018

We participated in this years International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off held in San Antonio.

We were also proud to receive recognition as one of the top 15 dealers in the USA!

I presented a discussion on selling to higher end homes and joined in question and answering on various topics.

Advanced Film Solutions is a team effort and I appreciate the incredible work of our sales, office and installation teams that have all contributed to our success!

Window Film Consumer Comparisons, Florida

Many consumers both residential and commercial are familiar with the 3M Brand. We would hope that these consumers are familiar with Eastman Chemical‘s the spin-off company from Eastman Kodak.

What most consumers don’t know is that Eastman Chemicals is the world’s largest manufactuerer of solar and solar security window film.

Their brands include LLumar, Vista, SunTek and Huper Optik.

Still there may be a perception that 3M is the leader in window film based on their well known Scotch brands, etc and this inaccurate belief may skew some consumers into believing that the 3M window film is the top choice for residential and commercial films.

col

This is decidedly not the case in any objective comparison of product depth, capabilities or performance.

Eastman films out-perform the limited 3M choices in each major product category:

Solar Films:

The Eastman solar film portfolio includes a wider choice in light transmissions and appearance.

Reflective and dual reflective films as well as non-reflective ceramic and spectrally selective films.

These Eastman films are all NFRC certified and can easily be compared to the very limited 3M NFRC database. In terms of security films used for life safety and asset protection there is really no comparison.

Eastman’s LLumar film meets all critical testing requirements including GSA, DOD and ASTM and European Smash standards.

Choices include several neutral choices, silver and several dual reflective security films as well as thicker coatings of 7, 8, 11 ml or thicker for various applications.

The Huper Optik ceramic films are IR heat blocking choices ideal for deed restricted or gated communities. These films out-perform the 3M prestige series as they provide superior heat rejection and better glare control features. Additionally the clarity of the Eastman adhesives is superior to the 3M adhesives.

Huper Optik is dye free unlike the aforementioned Prestige films so the heat filtering capabilities of the Huper Film will not degrade over time.

Heat Blocking Window Film Tampa & Orlando For Deed Restricted Communities

Many homeowners reside in gated, deed restricted communities.

These developments typically restrict the use of reflective sun control films because they are trying to preserve the aesthetic appeal of the homes in their neighborhood.

This is a similar situation faced by condo owners and historic buildings where heat, glare and UV are problems but the solution requires maximum heat rejection without the reflective appearance that many window films possess.

Advanced Film Solutions has the ideal solution utilizing ceramic IR heat blocking window films manufactured by Eastman Chemicals.

Our Huper Optik ceramic films factor out heat, glare and UV without adding a reflective appearance to your windows.

We have a wide range of light transmissions that tackle any heat problem and all of our selections pass the deed restrictions of all gated communities and HOA’s.

Huper Optik’s patented ceramic coatings are dye free and less reflective than glass. Views are preserved and the optical clarity of these coatings is unmatched.

Many window film choices look similar on a sample card or mock up.

Huper Optik is NFRC certified so the performance expectations are lab tested and documented. These ceramic films block an extraordinary amount of heat in the visible and invisible IR spectrum.

These coatings have a lifetime warranty and their durability will provide comfort for decades.
