Tips For Selecting Window Film, Choices Matter

Advanced Film Solutions is Florida’s leading residential and commercial window film installation company.

We have demonstrated our capabilities throughout the eleven years and 13,000 installations since we launched our company.

Our experience prior to establishing Advanced Film Solutions was spent at 3M Company where we developed our window film experience as National Sales Manager.

Florida home and business owners have a unique set of requirements. We obviously have more heat, glare and sun days than any other region of the country.

Our goal was to separate ourselves from the competition by offering our clients the very best heat rejecting solutions. This is more than a subjective position. There are fundamental performance characteristics of window film that position one window film solution as a superior choice compared to another.

These points of superior performance cover a wide array of variables:

  • Durability of the adhesives.
  • Clarity of the finished installed coating.
  • The appearance of the film in terms of reflectivity or non-reflectivity.
  • The NFRC rating of the film and anticipated performance, independently lab tested and certified.
  • The impact strength, puncture strength, etc, of the solar and clear security film

We know the advantages of one solution over another. That’s why we offer multiple brand and product choices to match our customer’s requirements to their practical and aesthetic objectives.

In terms of installation capabilities we were determined to employ the very best installers with a proven track record and years of experience.

We are fortunate to have the very best installation team in Florida including two of the top eight installers in the world tinting competition held recently in West Palm Beach!

Fighting heat, glare and UV damage takes the very best window film and the top of the line installations.

Advanced Film Solutions meets that challenge every day!

Window Film: Transforming Clear Glass Into Energy Efficient Windows

Window film is an aftermarket solution that consists of a transparent coating of film applied to your home’s windows and sliders.

Thin film technology over the last five decades has produced innovative and durable coatings that can provide cost effective solutions to many of the problems associated with clear glass.

  1. Today’s high tech window film stops 99.9% of harmful UV rays from damaging interior furnishings, wood floors and paintings. These films last a lifetime and are warranted for a lifetime of performance.
  2. Window film provides glare and light reduction customized to your specific requirements. You decide the amount of light filtering as well as the aesthetic appearance of your windows.
  3. Non-reflective IR heat blocking coatings like Huper Optik stop heat without altering the appearance of your windows. This makes HOA’s and deed restrictions a concern of the past!
  4. Thicker iterations of these coatings are effective means for home protection. The windows are covered with a coating that is used by the Federal Government to protect building throughout the USA.
  5. Glare is reduced by as much as 90%
  6. Privacy films are available as well as decorative films for bathroom privacy, etc.

Selecting The Perfect Window Film. What To Look For When Making Decisions

There are many variables for determining the perfect window film for your unique requirements. It can become confusing so we thought it might be helpful to provide a quick checklist for making the right selection.

Residential and commercial window film requires a skill set in installation capability that differentiates itself from car tinting.  The installation company should be fully equipped, insured and properly credentialed.

Advanced Film Solutions has 11 years of experience since leaving 3M (33 years there!)  Our team of installation experts has the most experience in the state of Florida. We have a superb A Plus Rating with the Better Business Bureau and an unmatched six straight years of earning the Super Service Award from Angie’s list.

Type of film:

There are scores of window film choices, brands and appearance.

Reflective and dual reflective coatings filter out heat and provide privacy during the daytime. These films are durable and their adhesive clarity is pristine.

The leader in reflective film and clear adhesives is Eastman Chemical.  These films are sold under the LLumar SelectPro and Vista brands.

These coatings have a transferable lifetime warranty and are available in more light transmissions (including bronze, silver and neutral) than any other manufacturer.

Non- reflective:

The objective is to filter out the most heat without adding any exterior reflectivity to your windows or sliders. Here again the Eastman Huper Optik ceramic films meet the most strict HOA’ rules and deed restrictions!

Solar safety security combination films:

Our LLumar and Vista Solar security films are available in multiple light transmissions so matching your security need with the right light transmission is a breeze!

Consumer Comparisons 3M Window Film Vs. Eastman Window Film

Clearly many consumers both residential and commercial are familiar with the 3M Brand. We would hope that these consumers are familiar with Eastman Chemical‘s the spin-off company from Eastman Kodak.

What most consumers don’t know is that Eastman Chemicals is the world’s largest manufactuerer of solar and solar security window film.

Their brands include LLumar, Vista, SunTek and Huper Optik.

Still there may be a perception that 3M is the leader in window film based on their well known Scotch brands, etc and this inaccurate belief may skew some consumers into believing that the 3M window film is the top choice for residential and commercial films.

col

This is decidedly not the case in any objective comparison of product depth, capabilities or performance.

Eastman films out-perform the limited 3M choices in each major product category:

Solar Films:

The Eastman solar film portfolio includes a wider choice in light transmissions and appearance.

Reflective and dual reflective films as well as non-reflective ceramic and spectrally selective films. These Eastman films are all NFRC certified and can easily be compared to the very limited 3M NFRC database. In terms of security films used for life safety and asset protection there is really no comparison. Eastman’s LLumar film meets all critical testing requirements including GSA, DOD and ASTM.

Choices include several neutral choices, silver and several dual reflective security films as well as thicker coatings of 7, 8, 11 ml or thicker for various applications.

26196250993_f88d903020_z

The Huper Optik ceramic films are IR heat blocking choices ideal for deed restricted or gated communities. These films out-perform the 3M prestige series as they provide superior heat rejection and better glare control features. Additionally the clarity of the Eastman adhesives is superior to the 3M adhesives.

Huper Optik is dye free unlike the aforementioned Prestige films so the heat filtering capabilities of the Huper Film will not degrade over time.
