Tampa, Orlando Home Glass Protection, Advanced Film Solutions

Protecting your home from burglary or shattered glass requires critical thinking and preparation.

You should start considering that your home’s windows and sliders are the weakest entry points for burglars!

Our security films delay, deny and deter entry!

 

Security glazing window film is a primary element for improving your home security.

Thieves recognize that glass windows and sliders are the easiest point of entry into your home.

Glazing protection film makes an easy break-in much more difficult by holding the glass in place.

These thicker coatings (typically 8 ML) are available in clear versions as well as a host of tinted alternatives ranging in light transmissions and appearance.

Many home owners who are considering a solar control UV solution can opt for these thicker versions of solar films that provide energy savings along with the built in security benefits of protective films.

Delaying and denying entry will let law enforcement respond in time from your alarm systems and this will deter theft.

Tampa Bay, Sarasota, Orlando Window Tinting Comparisons

Competition is the engine that drives business throughout the entire window film business.

This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone since every industry has its share of solutions providers who fight for consumer awareness and driving sales.

Advanced Film Solutions is one of Florida’s leading window film installation companies. Our experience (33 years at 3M and the last 13 plus years representing Eastman Chemicals LLumar SelectPro, Vista and Huper Optik window film) is unique.

3M and Eastman Chemical are both multi-national corporations with extensive operations throughout the world and multi-billion in corporate sales.  Both have over 100 years of history from the Eastman Kodak days and 3M (Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing) founded in the early 20th century.

Window film solutions have been employed since the early 1960’s and the window film business has evolved through the innovations in thin film technology and adhesives.

window film

Today’s window film solutions are durable and our window film solutions have documented performance characteristics as codified by the National Fenestration Ratings Council.

Eastman Chemicals and 3M Window Film offer lifetime warranties and all window films supplied by both corporations factor out 99.9% of the UV.

Eastman Chemicals is easily the global leader in sales and market share.  The Eastman Chemicals manufacturing footprint far outpaces the 3M capabilities in the window film market.

Certainly 3M has developed leadership in many diverse markets and industries but window film has not been a driving part of the 3M focus.

The Eastman superiority is evidenced by the broad portfolio of window film alternatives and this advantage is punctuated by the fact that Eastman manufactures many of the films sold under the 3M brand.

Whether one reviews the solar film suite of products or the security protective glazing films the Eastman advantage is noteworthy.

The window film advantage for Eastman is demonstrated by the superiority and clarity of the adhesives and the ability to meet consumer’s requirements thanks to multiple alternatives compared to 3M.

Solar Films:

Reflective and dual reflective coatings are the foundation of energy savings heat filtering solutions.

Eastman Chemicals LLumar and Vista Films are available in dozens of choices as compared to 3M’s limited solutions.

Eastman’s non reflective IR heat blocking films easily out-perform the decade old Prestige Film and our Huper Optik films are dye free as compared to the 3M multi-layered films.

Protective Glazing Film:

Here again the Eastman superiority outdistances the limited 3M product offering. In terms of real world impact strength, alternatives in film thickness and variety of light transmissions and appearance the Eastman edge is unmatched.

Frankly there is no comparison from a consumer benefit perspective.

The only area of debate is the topic of consumer awareness and consumer perception.

Let’s take as an example a 3M re-boxed Eastman Film.

Eastman manufactures a lower quality dual reflective film for 3M purchase and resale.

The 3M dealer proposes this lower quality film and implies that this re-boxed film was made by 3M.

Thanks to the halo effect of 3M and their brand identity many consumers would conclude that this solution is superior to a brand that they are not as familiar with.

Our goal at Advanced Film Solutions is to level the playing field.

Once we make the case that Eastman and 3M are well established corporate giants the true competition becomes the question: Which provider offers the best solution with the best investment return.

In that debate the answer is Advanced Film Solutions and our Eastman Chemicals LLumar SelectPro, Vista, LLumar, Huper Optik solutions!

The window film business has been around since the 1960’s and you would be correct in assuming that given the tropical climate here in Florida there might be many window film companies to meet the demand.

Advanced Film Solutions began our path to becoming Florida’s number one window film company in 2007.

Prior to this launch we worked for 3M for 33 years. Our experience as south east sales executive and national sales manager for 3M window film was a strong foundation for this fledgling business.

Advanced Film Solutions has grown during these last nearly 14 years. We have built the best team of fully trained and experienced installers. Our film portfolio has grown as well as we have adapted our product solutions to include the NFRC certified films manufactured by Eastman Chemicals, Avery-Dennison, Madico, Saint-Gobain and 3M Fasara and Scotchcal.

Our customers matter. Meeting their expectations is the main objective because growth depends on our reputation and positive referrals.

Tampa Bay, Orlando, Bradenton-Sarasota

Clear, Durable & Effective Tampa Bay, Orlando Window Film Solutions

Advanced Film Solutions is the leading window film installation company in the Tampa Bay, Orlando, and Sarasota region of Florida.

It has taken more than a decade of success as a family owned business to reach this high level of performance.

In fact, Advanced Film Solutions has been one of the top 15 window film businesses in the entire country the last five years as documented in Window Film Magazine.

It is important that our potential clients understand that we are providing thin film applications on existing windows and glass doors and sliders that stop heat, glare and UV.

These films are durable and optically transparent, and our clients select just how dark or light they want their rooms to be during the daytime.

There may be an element of skepticism concerning the effectiveness or durability of window film solutions out in the collective consciousness of the consumer’s mind. This negative perception is based on the purple, bubbling tint they see on some cars on our roads.

The thought is: “if this is what is going to happen to my window film, I’d rather take my chances with the clear glass I already have!”

We understand.

There was a time when window tinting was made using dyes and less than durable adhesives. These films wouldn’t last very long, peeled and bubbles while turning purple. Even today some cheaply made tints can have the same result.

Advanced Film Solutions will only install stable, lifetime warranted coatings manufactured by Eastman Chemicals. These thin films won’t peel, bubble or change color.

These coatings are distortion free and do exactly what we say they will do as documented by the NFRC in independent testing.

Our clients have their expectations matched or exceeded every time.

We won’t settle for anything less.

Advanced Film Solutions has performed more than 23,000 installations throughout the Tampa Bay, Orlando and Sarasota region as well as commercial windows throughout the south east USA.

We are dedicated to solving the problems of overheated rooms, flying debris and faded furnishings.
