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.

Updated Critical Consumer Window Film Comparison: Eastman Vs. 3M Window Tinting

Today’s consumers are particularly well prepared to make their own comparisons between window film choices. They research via the internet and social networking.

They check independent resources like the NFRC.

People don’t want to be “sold” they want to be informed and educated.

This is a vast improvement and a powerful tool for our clients.

Advanced Film Solutions based in Tampa Bay with offices in Sarasota and Orlando has a somewhat unique perspective on the critical comparisons between 3M Window Film and the Eastman Window Film portfolio.

20520052761_2c16890382_z

As the former 3M employee (33 years) and as the former National Sales Manager of 3M Window Film and for the last ten years as the founder and President of Advanced Film Solutions Advanced Film Solutions is thoroughly versed in all aspects of the window film business.

We appreciate that our bias is toward Eastman Films. We are their Vista Dealer of the Year for the Southeast USA and the Dealer of the year for Eastman’s Huper Optik Films in Florida.

Nevertheless leaving that aside I’d like to assist consumers in a factual analysis of the differences and superiority of the LLumar, Vista and Huper Optik Film:

NFRC:

The NFRC rates all lab tested and independently documented applied films.  This is a completely objective fact based resource.

You will note that the Eastman film portfolio offers a quantum advantage in choices for residential and commercial clients.

From solar films in reflective, dual reflective and nano-ceramic films the Eastman suite of films dwarfs the limited 3M offering.

Non reflective choices that meet all deed restrictions like our Huper Optik ceramic films.  These patented films have no dyes and a durable hard coat. This compares to the 3M Prestige films that have dyes that will degrade through the course of time.

20513703315_71db2860ae_z

These choices out-perform the 3M films in glare rejection, heat rejection and optical clarity.

Eastman LLumar and Vista solar and clear security films are available in dozens of shade choices and thickness.  These LLumar and Vista Films meet the objective Federal GSA testing requirements and UL Testing that meet and exceed.

There is no 3M Safety Security film that out-performs the Eastman choices in terms of life safety. This is a fact.

We understand that consumers may be more familiar with the 3M Brand name compared to Eastman. We fully acknowledge that perception.

The fact that Eastman Chemicals is easily the world leader in window film sales and market share may not be as well know.

Advanced Film Solutions encourages these comparisons.
