Florida’s Window Film Company
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.
If you are responsible for securing your facility we recommend that you inquire about a free estimate.

Tampa homeowners choose between reflective coating or non-reflective coatings applied to their windows and sliders.
This is particularly important for the aesthetic appearance of the windows from the exterior perspective.
Reflective films: More accurately today’s film is actually dual reflective. The exterior appearance is reflective while the interior is less reflective; enabling unobstructed views day or night.
Reflective films provide additional daytime privacy than the non reflective choices. These films are typically safe for dual pane non tempered glass as well as single pane annealed glass.
There are many choices of security solar films that can economically protect your home from smash and grab while lowering cooling costs.
Advanced Film Solutions has a wide portfolio of dual reflective films manufactured by Eastman Chemicals.
These choices include Vista Film and LLumar in light transmissions that range from very dark to light.
Non reflective films are ideal for deed restricted communities, condominiums and any home where a reflective appearance is not preferred.
Ceramic coatings like Huper Optik are designed to keep out heat without altering the look of the glass. These films are factoring out visible light as well as IR wavelengths.
All Advanced Film Solutions installations have a lifetime warranty and our team of installers has earned our company eight straight Super Service Awards from Angie’s List

The heat is on through October!
Unfortunately when we hit our long tropical summers it’s a daily fight to stay cool both outside and more importantly inside your home or place of work.
We all know where the heat is coming from.
Your windows and sliders let that heat into your rooms and offices.
Advanced Film Solutions provides the answer to this heat gain by installing solar films on the interior side of your windows.
Sun and glare control films are durable and transparent. These coatings filter out nearly 100% of the UV and as much as 85% of the total solar energy.
We offer lighter non-reflective coatings that factor out infrared heat without altering the look of your home or office.
Your rooms will be cooler and glare will be gone and your monthly electric costs will be reduced by as much as 30%.
Why suffer through another long hot summer?
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.
