Tampa, Orlando, Sarasota-Bradenton Protective Glazing Window Film

We are all painfully familiar with the series of threats, both real and inferred, targeting religious institutions across the USA.

These threats are not isolated to a specific religious group or category of school.

Childcare Centers, K-12 as well as community colleges and universities face dangerous times and concerned communities are taking proactive measures to increase people and asset protection

Advanced Film Solutions is one of Florida’s leading security protective glazing window film installation companies.

We have protected Universities, child care centers and religious institutions and houses of worship throughout the region.

Protective glazing films are employed by the Federal Government to protect Military personnel, Federal buildings, state and local governments and landmark building that may be the target of terrorism threats.

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.

Window Tinting Comparison Eastman Vs. 3M Window Film

Perception Vs. Reality.

Many consumers are familiar with the 3M Brand.

Small wonder because 3M makes thousands of products that consumers use every day; from Post-It Notes to Scotch Tape.

Home and business owners may be less familiar with Eastman Chemicals although they certainly know Eastman Kodak.

Eastman Chemicals separated from Eastman Kodak more than 25 years ago.

Eastman Chemicals is the world leader in window film technology, manufacturing and sales.

Advanced Film Solutions provides superior installations of Eastman window film sold under the LLumar, Vista, Huper Optik, and SunTek trademarks.

Flat Glass- residential and Commercial window film:

PhysicalPropertiesOnePagerL2349(Jan2020)

Eastman Chemicals has a broad array of light transmissions and films of varied aesthetics.

Reflective films, dual reflective films and non reflective coatings in a wide range.

All of the residential and commercial choices have been NFRC certified for veracity in anticipated performance.

The 3M portfolio is extremely limited in terms of light transmissions and appearance.

For example our LLumar dual reflectives which out-perform the 3M Night Vision series is available in darker and lighter versions. The Vista films are also dual reflective and are also available in more choices of light filtering.

In terms of security film there is simply no comparison.

Our LLumar and Vista films are available in stronger 8 ML versions in dozens of light transmissions compared to 3M’s thinner limited security films.

Our Eastman Huper Optik series has several critical advantages over the 3M Prestige series.

Huper Optik has no dyes in the composition of the film. This ensures durability and color stability. The 3M Prestige films employ dyes and these light filtering chemicals can be scratched off of the film quite easily.

The adhesive superiority of Huper Optik’s clarity easily out performs the 3M Prestige film.

Our Huper Optik films are available in darker versions (20%-30%) where glare rejection and maximum heat rejection is crucial. Our Huper Drei is the best heat rejecting 35% film in the industry and easily out-performs the 3M Prestige 40.

Sun Control Safety Security Window Film, Tampa Bay, Orlando, Sarasota

We look through windows every day, but it’s easy to overlook the safety risks they present.

When windows or sliders shatter, serious injuries can result.

Injuries can occur from opening or closing the window or pushing on it too hard; sometimes they occur without any contact at all.

Use Shatter Retention Window Film to Reduce the Risk of Shattering

The aftermarket  installation of thick clear or solar safety film in windows with which impact is likely, such as floor-length windows, sliders, doors containing glass, or windows in common areas of residence halls or crowded hallways is critically important.

Advanced Film Solutions is expert in the proper installation and anchoring of shatter film.

This specialized capability has been acquired over decades of installation experience.  It is a serious obligation to leave every installation with the assurance that the window film was properly installed according to manufacturers specifications.

The choice of film:

Advanced Film Solutions has successfully installed shatter film at thousands of homes and offices, retail stores and educational institutions to name a few.

Our experience at 3M for 33 years and more recently the last 15 years since we launched our family owned window film dealership.

We have developed a long respectful relationship with multiple security film manufacturers all of whom have demonstrated safety efficacy and optical clarity and long-term durability.

Beyond that; these safety films have all met the objective criteria of independent testing conducted by Federal agencies like the GSA and Department of Defense.

The health and life safety performance of the Eastman, Madico, Saint-Gobain, Avery Dennison and 3M are equivalent.

The differences are specifically related to the aesthetic variations including light transmission, clarity, reflectivity from the exterior view or the interior view.

Our experience and industry knowledge guide our consulting direction and we have found the LLumar and Vista security and solar films as the most flexible in meeting client expectations. This is not to say that these films meet a higher safety level but rather these films match our client’s aesthetic preferences.

Glass safety in homes and commercial government buildings is a critical issue.

Schools, religious institutions, retail stores and government buildings have all employed these shatter films to protect students, teachers, parishioners and visitors.
