Thicker safety films have been protecting government buildings, schools, airports and military installations throughout the world for decades.
These 8 ML thick or greater mylar coatings are effective against impact from blasts as they maintain the integrity of the window opening holding glass in place and reducing injuries from glass fragmentation.
Window film manufacturers have developed a full range of shatter films that have an additional solar filtering layer that provides energy cost savings, privacy from the street view and glare rejection of up to 80%.
Home and business owners can now select from the large portfolio of shatter film solar safety films to upgrade their security for their home, store or facility while lowering cooling costs that will provide a superior return on investment.
Advanced Film Solutions offers our clients more choices than any other window film installation company and our experience in providing superior installations is unmatched.
These films have been independently tested and quantified to meet the most stringent federal guidelines and impact standards.
Given our tropical climate and burglary rates these solar safety combination films makes sense!

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

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.

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 Chemicals 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.
