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.

Post Florida Hurricane Window Film Considerations

Congratulations (we hope) for having weathered the storm.

Many of our neighbors, including right here at Advanced Film Solutions were struggling without power.

Nearly 70% of Pinellas and 50% of Hillsborough county residents are without power.

Given our 90 degree plus temperatures this certainly isn’t easy to live through.

Advanced Film Solutions asks that you consider the practical and affordable benefits of window film.

Home above has impact widow film on all exterior glass. Protecting from heat as well as impact.

Our solar films keep up to 85% of the heat out from your home.  These films work throughout the day filtering out heat and glare.

Thicker versions of these solar films provide security and impact resistance against intrusion and impact.  Even if your alarm system is down our coatings continue to strengthen your glass.

Consider the energy savings, glare rejection and nearly 100% UV blocking and you’ll recognize the benefits of a window film installation.

Our team is busy meeting the needs of home and business owners throughout Tampa Bay, Sarasota and Orlando.

Florida Window Film Vs. Replacing Windows The Clear Choice

Window film is a retrofit solution that transforms your inefficient single pane or dual pane windows into heat filtering units at a cost of a fraction of a window replacement.

Today’s durable lifetime warranted window film will not bubble, peel or fade. The number of choices is incredible ranging from dark light transmissions to clear IR heat blocking films.

We also recommend dual benefit solar security window films that will strengthen your glass providing shatter control and theft protection.

There are low e coatings that provide summer and winter benefits by maintaining the interior room temperatures no matter how hot or cold it gets outside.

Advanced Film Solutions with offices in Tampa Bay, Sarasota and Orlando offers more choices of coatings than any other window film installation company.

We can meet any deed restriction or HOA rule thanks to our non-reflective coatings. These films are all NFRC certified so you will get the performance expected and the durability you require.

Our expert team of installers can manage any size project and we have earned the Super Service Award from Angie’s List for seven straight years.
