Tampa, Orlando How To Choose Between Security & Solar Window Film

Fall is almost upon us and Floridians now under stay at home orders consider methods for keeping their homes cooler and safer.

Advanced Film Solutions is the region leader in window film solutions and installation capabilities.

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

Our portfolio of solutions is unmatched and our installers are some of the best in the world. That’s not a guess or hype; we actually placed 2 of our installers in the top eight in the world.

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.
