Window Film Solutions For Cooler & Safer Florida Homes

As we approach winter here in Florida you may not be thinking about methods for keeping your home cooler since the temperatures are finally becoming livable!

Window film can do much more than keeping the heat from entering your home. There are many advantages and benefits for a window film installation that may not be as well known to most homeowners.

UV Eliminated: Our window film filters out nearly 100% of harmful UV rays that damage wood floors, furnishings and artwork. There are also health benefits for your family since UV can cause skin issues particularly in Florida.

Safety and Security: Thicker versions of our solar films maintain the integrity of your windows and sliders by holding glass in place after impact.

Burglars frequently target your windows and glass entry doors and sliders. Our shatter films delay, deny and deter entry into your home.

Glare: Window film stops glare from ruining your dinner or TV and video game experiences. You can choose darker films  that stop glare by 90% or more.

Protect People & Assets With Florida’s Security Glazing Window Film

Property management and asset protection, security management have a 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

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!
