Home Security Protective Window Film For Tampa Homes

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

The Federal government has used 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 alternatives but all of our selections meet or exceed the DoD and GSA testing requirements.

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

Stop burglar

Madico and Sunscape security films.

Armorcoat by Saint-Gobain

Johnson Laminating

Avery- Dennison 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.

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 appearance, 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.

Protect People & Assets With Glazing Window Film

Property managers, asset protection, and security management have the critical responsibility to ensure safety for people and assets at soft target locations.

By soft target we are referring to facilities that may be targeted by extremists for potential explosives where security personnel are not typically employed.

Glass is an ineffective barrier and flying glass shards and debris can become catastrophic during a blast event.

The Federal Government under the auspices of the GSA and Department of Defense have established blast mitigation standards since the Oklahoma City bombing in 1994.

The Glazing protection films installed by Advanced Film Solutions meets these standards and these films provide this level of documented, tested people and asset protection.

It is highly recommended that the film installation is attached to storefront frames using an approved attachment system.

Advanced Film Solutions typically utilizes Dow Corning 995 Structural Silicone which has been tested and approved by the Federal officials including the Army Corps.  of Engineers.

 

Advanced Film Solutions is flexible in the approved window film brands that meet these standards.

  • Eastman Chemicals LLumar, Vista and SunTek
  • Madico and Madico Sunscape
  • Saint-Gobain’s Armorcoat
  • Johnson Laminating
  • Hanita- Avery-Dennison

There are aesthetic variations between these films but the safety level is equal as all the films represented meet the GSA standards.

Many property and asset protection managers consider solar safety security films that not only provide the life safety benefits but also provide solar heat gain reduction and privacy (reflective combination films.)

We recommend that you consider a free site survey and estimate.

These are difficult times and no one is happy about the need to consider these covert methods for protecting your personnel and assets.

Nevertheless; if you are concerned about a potential threat (think religious institution or schools) than these effective methods should be strongly considered!

Tampa Bay, Orlando Window Film Consumer Comparisons

Advanced Film Solutions is proud to promote the  Eastman Chemical window film products.

What most consumers don’t know is that Eastman Chemicals is the world’s largest manufacturer 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.

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 and European Smash standards.

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.

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.
