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.

Prestige Tampa Bay, Orlando Homes Demand Ceramic Films

Homeowners know how effective window film can be for maintaining a cooler, energy efficient UV free home.

This reflective appearance also became an issue for deed restricted homes in gated communities and condos.

Advanced Film Solutions solves your heat issues, glare UV and rising cooling costs with ceramic IR heat blocking coatings from Huper Optik.

Huper Optik is a patented ceramic film that is manufactured by Eastman Chemical’s in Germany.

These films are dye free and durable.

Huper Optik has the best light to heat blocking ratio of any window film.

If you have management responsibility for a facility that has failed and damaged window film you should be aware of the newest technology available to you.

Advanced Film Solutions has developed the best team of window film installers and window film solutions in the State of Florida.

  • Reduce heat gain

  • Lower cooling costs

  • Provide Privacy

  • Improve security

  • Improve curb appeal of building.

No matter the size of your project we can remove the old damaged window film and transform your glass into energy efficient systems that will lower glare, filter out UV and bring clarity back to your windows and doors.

Removing old film is just one capability that our experts can easily tackle.

Security window film is also an option particularly if you experience the potential of smash and grab burglary or are concerned about threats of any type.
