Tampa Bay Home Protection Security Window Film

Protecting your home from burglary requires critical thinking and preparation.

You should start considering that your home’s windows and sliders are the weakest entry points for burglars!

Our security films delay, deny and deter entry!

 

Security glazing window film is a primary element for improving your home security.

Thieves recognize that glass windows and sliders are the easiest point of entry into your home.

Glazing protection film makes an easy break-in much more difficult by holding the glass in place.

These thicker coatings (typically 8 ML) are available in clear versions as well as a host of tinted alternatives ranging in light transmissions and appearance.

Many home owners who are considering a solar control UV solution can opt for these thicker versions of solar films that provide energy savings along with the built in security benefits of protective films.

Delaying and denying entry will let law enforcement respond in time from your alarm systems and this will deter theft.

Lock Down. How Window Film Protects Schools & Daycare Centers

Advanced Film Solutions has been protecting schools and day care centers throughout Tampa Bay, Orlando and Sarasota with security glazing window film.

These transparent coatings are thicker and the adhesive stronger than standard solar control window film.

Typically 8 ML thick, security glazing window film is designed for maximum impact strength, tensile strength and puncture resistance.

There are instances when a privacy security film should be considered during a lock down event or safe room situation. These films will provide visibility from the interior to the street but prevent targeting from the exterior.

The safety administrators for these institutions prefer the covert nature of these coatings. The appearance of the school’s windows can remain unchanged or if they prefer a lightly tinted coating for energy savings and glare reduction.

The objective is to keep the “bad guys” out and security glazing window film maintains the window envelope. These films are the very same coatings used on the US Capitol Building and embassies throughout the world.

Advanced Film Solutions is Florida’s leading installer of high security impact window films.

Today’s unfortunate challenges for student and faculty protection are the driving force for these installations.
