To be sure we have been developing our capabilities for the last 13 years and prior to that 33 years at 3M.
Our portfolio of solutions is unmatched and our installers are some of the best in the world. That’s not a guess or hype; we actually placed 2 of our installers in the top eight in the world.
The question at hand is how to decide between a strictly solar control window film as compared to a thicker (8 ML) clear or solar safety window film?
Solar films are thin film coatings available in a wide array of light transmissions. These coatings stop UV and as much as 85% of the total solar energy (Heat!)
Thicker safety iterations perform the solar control function but as they are much thicker these versions have a far greater puncture resistance and impact capabilities.
Above and below our installation at Sarasota International Airport for protective glazing blast mitigation concerns.
There are less solar security versions than the thinner versions and a slight cost uplift for the thicker coatings as compared to the thinner versions.
Advanced Film Solutions offers several brands of solar films and safety films manufactured by Eastman Chemicals LLumar Select and Vista as well as SunTek.
We also install Madico and Sunscape, Avery Dennison Hanita and Solar Gard/ Armorcoat films.
If you are concerned about home intrusion or burglary or your home or office is subject to flying debris or an errant golf ball you should consider the thicker versions.
The industry is circumspect about defining the thicker films as a storm protection mitigation device. These films do hold the glass in the frames when properly attached but the window will likely shatter whereas a code meeting shutter will prevent the window from breaking.
Advanced Film Solutions will discuss all of your options and provide the very best custom solutions all with a lifetime warranty.

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.
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.
The competitive landscape in 2007 was a daunting challenge. Our goal was to develop our business from the ground floor by offering the best performing selections of window film using the best installers in the Tampa Bay region.
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.
The need in Florida for cooling solar and solar safety films is acute. Advanced Film Solutions is there for you and is ready to make your home comfortable and safe.
Congratulations for getting that new SUV you’ve been dreaming about!
You have probably noticed that your front driver and front passenger windows have clear glass while your SUV’s rear windows have a darker privacy glass.
Advanced Film Solutions is located on US 41 (Land O’ Lakes Blvd) is Tampa’s LLumar SelectPro FormulaOne automotive window tinting installation company.
Our LLumar Select films have a perfect color match to the factory glass for making your front windows cooler, glare and UV free!
You should also consider have an application of LLumar installed on the interior glass for the rear windows as well.
The factory privacy glass has no UV protection and the heat blocking is a low 35%. Getting the rear glass windows tinted will nearly double the heat filtering factor and stop 99.9% of the UV from entering your vehicle.
Advanced Film Solutions installers use Precision Cut high speed plotters to produce the window film template that exactly matches the SUV window configuration. This speed up your wait time and eliminates razor cuts completely.
All Advanced Film Solutions installations come with a lifetime warranty from LLumar.
