Window Film Cooling Tampa’s Hottest Offices

How Window Film Protects Tampa Bay Schools & Daycare Centers

Advanced Film Solutions has been protecting schools and day care centers throughout Tampa Bay, Orlando and Sarasota with security glazing window film.

These transparent coatings are thicker and the adhesive stronger than standard solar control window film.

Typically 8 ML thick, security glazing window film is designed for maximum impact strength, tensile strength and puncture resistance.

There are instances when a privacy security film should be considered during a lock down event or safe room situation.

These films will provide visibility from the interior to the street but prevent targeting from the exterior.

The safety administrators for these institutions prefer the covert nature of these coatings.

The appearance of the school’s windows can remain unchanged or if they prefer a lightly tinted coating for energy savings and glare reduction.

The objective is to keep the “bad guys” out and security glazing window film maintains the window envelope.

These films are the very same coatings used on the US Capitol Building and embassies throughout the world.

Advanced Film Solutions is Florida’s leading installer of high security impact window films.

Today’s unfortunate challenges for student and faculty protection are the driving force for these installations.

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

Fall is 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 13 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 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.
