Huper Optik Ceramic Window Film Best Heat Rejection For Florida Homes

Thanks to patented ceramic technology the entire window film industry has been transformed.

Home and business owners don’t have to live with reflective films that alter the appearance of your windows. Many home owner associations limit or restrict the use of reflective coatings and ceramic films are the preferred solution.

Huper Optik manufactured by Eastman Chemical’s is the only patented ceramic window film.

Huper Optik has the best heat to light ratio and unlike generic ceramic film copy cats our ceramic film is available in lighter and darker shades and wider widths.

Our competitors are all promoting single layer materials that have higher reflectivity and lower performance (heat rejection!)

Huper Optik is 100% dye free and available in darker light transmissions compared to the 3M Prestige films.

Prestige is limited to a 40% light transmission at its darkest. Huper Optik is available in a 30%, 20% and lower.

Home Security Protective Window Film For Florida Homes

Throughout the long history (nearly 60 years) of the window film industry it became evident that thicker security glazing window film coatings provided a significant level of protection against forced entry, smash and grab crimes and flying debris.

12992_618168704883271_1326451465_n

The Federal government has employed these films to protect GSA and Military personnel and property around the USA as well as overseas.

Blast protection (mitigation) particularly after Oklahoma City focused on a specified level of protection and Federal officials determined a baseline level of performance expectations that many manufacturers have met (documented testing available.)

Advanced Film Solutions is unique by offering multiple brand choices but all of our selections have met or exceeded the DoD and GSA Testing requirements.

These choices include Eastman Chemical’s LLumar, Vista and SunTek security films.

Madico and Sunscape security films.

Armorcoat by Saint-Gobain

Johnson Laminating

Hanita Films manufactured in Israel.

There are certainly aesthetic differences as one might expect between these brand offerings. Metallic privacy and silver films, clear or lightly tinted iterations as well as multiple light transmissions and levels of reflective or non-reflective.

security-window-film-3

In all cases Advanced Film Solutions offers an optional but highly recommended Dow 995 attachment system that anchors the film, frames and glass into one complete system.

We should note that our single competition 3M Safety and Security Film does NOT offer any documented safety or security advantage over any of the scores of choices we install on a daily basis.

There is absolutely no advantage for 3M or performance benefit measurable by any independent testing; nor can 3M provide any documented advantage.

In fact the 3M portfolio is extremely limited in the selections offered in terms of apperance, light transmissions and reflectivity.

Why glazing security films:

The bottom line is the efficacy value of these coatings. Thicker 8 ML coatings hold glass in place against force and physical attack. They are recommended for blast protection and store burglary protection. These films are employed by school districts to prevent intrusion by armed perpetrators.

These films have been tested and have met wind storm small and medium large missile impact testing and cycling .

Most home and business owners require solar versions of these films to lower cooling costs or provide privacy.  The dual benefit of a solar security combination film improves the ROI immeasurably.

Florida homes and businesses choose Advanced Film Solutions.

Tips For Selecting Florida Heat Control UV Window Film, Choices Matter

Advanced Film Solutions is Florida’s leading residential and commercial window film installation company.

We have demonstrated our capabilities throughout the eleven years and 13,000 installations since we launched our company.

Our experience prior to establishing Advanced Film Solutions was spent at 3M Company where we developed our window film experience as National Sales Manager.

Florida home and business owners have a unique set of requirements. We obviously have more heat, glare and sun days than any other region of the country.

Our goal was to separate ourselves from the competition by offering our clients the very best heat rejecting solutions. This is more than a subjective position. There are fundamental performance characteristics of window film that position one window film solution as a superior choice compared to another.

These points of superior performance cover a wide array of variables:

  • Durability of the adhesives.
  • Clarity of the finished installed coating.
  • The appearance of the film in terms of reflectivity or non-reflectivity.
  • The NFRC rating of the film and anticipated performance, independently lab tested and certified.
  • The impact strength, puncture strength, etc, of the solar and clear security film

We know the advantages of one solution over another. That’s why we offer multiple brand and product choices to match our customer’s requirements to their practical and aesthetic objectives.

In terms of installation capabilities we were determined to employ the very best installers with a proven track record and years of experience.

We are fortunate to have the very best installation team in Florida including two of the top eight installers in the world tinting competition held in West Palm Beach!

Fighting heat, glare and UV damage takes the very best window film and the top of the line installations.

Advanced Film Solutions meets that challenge every day!

Tampa Bay Home Protection Security Window Film

Protecting your home from burglary requires critical thinking and preparation.

You should start considering that your home’s windows and sliders are the weakest entry points for burglars!

Our security films delay, deny and deter entry!

 

Security glazing window film is a primary element for improving your home security.

Thieves recognize that glass windows and sliders are the easiest point of entry into your home.

Glazing protection film makes an easy break-in much more difficult by holding the glass in place.

These thicker coatings (typically 8 ML) are available in clear versions as well as a host of tinted alternatives ranging in light transmissions and appearance.

Many home owners who are considering a solar control UV solution can opt for these thicker versions of solar films that provide energy savings along with the built in security benefits of protective films.

Delaying and denying entry will let law enforcement respond in time from your alarm systems and this will deter theft.
