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.
All solutions have lifetime warranty and in the case of LLumar and Vista these coatings have a transferable warranty.
We offer choices that include Eastman Chemical’s LLumar, Vista, SunTek and Huper Optik.
Madico and Madico Sunscape.
3M Fasara and ScotchCal
Saint-Gobain Solar Gard and Armorcoat.
Hanita Solar and Safety Zone
Our objective is to match the best of class for our clients.
Determining the perfect solutions entails the performance expectation required along with the aesthetic appearance of the installed coating.
Reflective films, dual reflective films may solve the glare and UV issues along with filtering out the heat. Many clients will prefer a non-metallic appearance which would point to the IR heat blocking ceramic coatings of Huper Optik.
Graphics and decorative films are also available in as you’d expect a wide variety of choices.
LLumar Illusions, Sunscape Deco-Lite and 3M Fasara are designed to provide privacy and add beauty to your home or office.
There is a full line of clear and tinted safety security films that provide home security against burglary while simultaneously factoring out heat and UV.
Advanced Film Solutions will take the mystery out of your window film decision making and as always give you the best possible installation.

Clear glass allows unfiltered heat, dangerous UV and glare particularly for east, west and south facing windows and doors.
The best solution is the application of solar control window film.

Security and solar films from Hanita, Madico and Armorcoat.
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.
These coatings have a transferable lifetime warranty and are available in more light transmissions (including bronze, silver and neutral) than any other manufacturer.
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!
