Cool Pane Relief Window Tinting For Hot Florida Homes

There’s absolutely no question you turned on your AC the last few days.

After all the temperatures are hovering near 90 degrees and the humidity is nearly at summer levels.

You set your thermostat at your preferred number and grit your teeth when you open next month’s electric bill.

pressrelease_23439_1349015988

You may not realize that an application of solar control window film can stop nearly 85% of the heat from entering through your windows. This has the positive effect of lowering that electric bill by 30% a month.

Solar control window film protects your furnishings from fading and paintings from getting lighter and washed out.

 

Stopping heat from entering your home right at the window with Eastman Vista, LLumar or Huper Optik window film provides cool pain relief.

The coating removes harmful UV rays from fading your furnishings or wood floors. The glare is removed from your family room and watching TV becomes enjoyable again!

All of our films are warranted for a lifetime and our Vista films have a transferable lifetime warranty.

Museum Quality Window Film, Advanced Film Solutions

When a local St. Petersburg museum began considering what type of damage unfiltered sunlight, heat and UV could do to their exhibits they wisely researched all window film solutions.

There are scores of window film installation companies in the Tampa, St. Pete Clearwater region but after doing their due diligence they chose Advanced Film Solutions.

Our team of installers completed the project in 2.5 days.

We applied Eastman Chemical’s LLumar Select Ceramic Coatings that factor out 99.9% of the harmful UV ray without taking away their views or light.

We installed a darker LLumar coating in the central lobby area so that visitors and employees would have maximum glare and comfort improvement.

Advanced Film Solutions has completed more than 13,000 commercial and residential projects since we launched our company in 2007.

Our clients receive the very best installations and our ceramic coatings easily out-performed our local 3M competition’s prestige film.

Florida Home Security Protective Window Film

Throughout the long history (nearly 60 years) of the window film industry it became evident that thicker security glazing window film coatings provided a significant level of protection against forced entry, smash and grab crimes and flying debris.

12992_618168704883271_1326451465_n

The Federal government has employed these films to protect GSA and Military personnel and property around the USA as well as overseas.

Blast protection (mitigation) particularly after Oklahoma City focused on a specified level of protection and Federal officials determined a baseline level of performance expectations that many manufacturers have met (documented testing available.)

Advanced Film Solutions is unique by offering multiple brand choices but all of our selections have met or exceeded the DoD and GSA Testing requirements.

These choices include Eastman Chemical’s LLumar, Vista and SunTek security films.

Madico and Sunscape security films.

Armorcoat by Saint-Gobain

Johnson Laminating

Hanita Films manufactured in Israel.

There are certainly aesthetic differences as one might expect between these brand offerings. Metallic privacy and silver films, clear or lightly tinted iterations as well as multiple light transmissions and levels of reflective or non-reflective.

security-window-film-3

In all cases Advanced Film Solutions offers an optional but highly recommended Dow 995 attachment system that anchors the film, frames and glass into one complete system.

We should note that our single competition 3M Safety and Security Film does NOT offer any documented safety or security advantage over any of the scores of choices we install on a daily basis.

There is absolutely no advantage for 3M or performance benefit measurable by any independent testing; nor can 3M provide any documented advantage.

In fact the 3M portfolio is extremely limited in the selections offered in terms of apperance, light transmissions and reflectivity.

Why glazing security films:

The bottom line is the efficacy value of these coatings. Thicker 8 ML coatings hold glass in place against force and physical attack. They are recommended for blast protection and store burglary protection. These films are employed by school districts to prevent intrusion by armed perpetrators.

These films have been tested and have met wind storm small and medium large missile impact testing and cycling .

Most home and business owners require solar versions of these films to lower cooling costs or provide privacy.  The dual benefit of a solar security combination film improves the ROI immeasurably.

Florida homes and businesses choose Advanced Film Solutions.

Fade Protection Window Film. Taming The Florida Sun

Clear glass may have  seemed wonderful when you moved into your home.

The view was perfect and the openness and bright light made your paintings and wood floors really jump out.

Unfortunately the longer your furnishings are exposed to unfiltered light; the fast these valuable possessions begin to fade.

It’s a deadly trio of factors that ruins your floors and leather couch.

UV: Unfiltered UV promotes fading and the harmful nature of UV is well documented.

All Advanced Film Solutions solar control window films block 99.9% of these rays.

Heat: The amount of heat streaming through your glass is the next third of your problem. darker is better for fade protection and thanks to dozens of choices your home need not be dark or uninviting.

Light: the amount of light is the final third of the problem.

Advanced Film Solutions Eastman Films can filter out up to 95% of the visible light. This might be ideal for a bedroom but most homeowners prefer lighter coatings that block 60-85% of the visible light.

Florida Deed Restrictions, Gated Community Approved Window Film Comparisons

Tampa Bay, Orlando and Sarasota boast some of the more exclusive gated communities in the country.

Homeowners appreciate the deed restrictions that prohibit activities that can lower property values.

While homes in gated communities suffer from heat, glare and rising cooling costs their deed restrictions prohibit the use of reflective window film.

Advanced Film Solutions offers the best heat rejecting non-reflective window films that meet all deed restrictions.

Huper Optik ceramic films provide the best heat to light ratio performance of any non reflective films.

These non dyed and non-corrosive films out-perform all competitive offerings including the 3M Prestige series (dyed, multi-layered films.)

When we discuss anticipated performance on various glass types (single-pane, tempered, IG, etc.) we refer to documented characteristics as outlined by the NFRC.

Huper Optik, Eastman Chemicals has a wider range of choices than the dyed prestige films.

Huper Optik clarity is superior compared to the multi-layered 3M choices.

Huper Optik offers a lifetime warranty and of course our choices eliminate 99.9% of the UV.

There are many gated communities that have allowed reflective films in their communities.

If the HOA approves than you might consider the Eastman Vista Series or our LLumar Dual Reflective films.

These films are available in a wide range of light transmissions in either the Vista or LLumar lines and these choices out-perform our 3M Night Vision competition.
