To be sure we have been developing our capabilities for the last 15 years and prior to that 33 years at 3M.

The question at hand is how to decide between a strictly solar control window film as compared to a thicker (8 ML) clear or solar safety window film?
Solar films are thin film coatings available in a wide array of light transmissions. These coatings stop UV and as much as 85% of the total solar energy (Heat!)
Thicker safety iterations perform the solar control function but as they are much thicker these versions have a far greater puncture resistance and impact capabilities.
Above and below our installation at Sarasota International Airport for protective glazing blast mitigation concerns.
There are less solar security versions than the thinner versions and a slight cost uplift for the thicker coatings as compared to the thinner versions.
Advanced Film Solutions offers several brands of solar films and safety films manufactured by Eastman Chemical LLumar Select and Vista as well as SunTek.
We also install Madico and Sunscape, Avery Dennison Hanita and Solar Gard/ Armorcoat films.
If you are concerned about home intrusion or burglary or your home or office is subject to flying debris or an errant golf ball you should consider the thicker versions.
The industry is circumspect about defining the thicker films as a storm protection mitigation device. These films do hold the glass in the frames when properly attached but the window will likely shatter whereas a code meeting shutter will prevent the window from breaking.
Advanced Film Solutions will discuss all of your options and provide the very best custom solutions all with a lifetime warranty.

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.

Thicker (8 Ml plus) glazing films are installed on the interior side of your windows and doors. These films are then attached to the metal frames using a wet seal silicone that has been tested and approved for government force and people protection throughout the world.
These films hold the glass in the frames against explosives or ballistic attack. While these films are not bullet proof; these films can delay, deter and deny entry into the protected area.
There are numerous configurations and choices for solar versions of these thicker films. Daytime privacy and lowered cooling costs can be substantial benefits for your institution simultaneously with the added security benefit.
These coatings are invisible so the aesthetics of your building remain unchanged.
