We are all painfully familiar with the series of threats, both real and inferred, targeting religious institutions across the USA.
These threats are not isolated to a specific religious group or category of school.
Childcare Centers, K-12 as well as community colleges and universities face dangerous times and concerned communities are taking proactive measures to increase people and asset protection
Advanced Film Solutions is one of Florida’s leading security protective glazing window film installation companies. We have protected Universities, child care centers and religious institutions and Houses of Worship throughout the region.
Protective glazing films are employed by the Federal Government to protect Military personnel, Federal buildings, state and local governments and landmark building that may be the target of terrorism threats.
These coatings meet strict standards and documented, tested capabilities to withstand blast and intrusion.
Our team professionally installs these coatings to the interior (and exterior in some cases) of the building envelope on the exterior facing windows and doors. Attachment systems are utilized to fix the film installation to building frames thus creating a complete system that bonds the glass in place.
Shatter resistant coatings are available in clear as well as combination solar iterations that will lower interior temperatures, provide privacy and lower monthly electric cooling costs.
These invisible systems are cost effective and offer superior life saving benefits.
If you are responsible for securing your facility we recommend that you inquire about a free estimate.
Throughout the long history (nearly 60 years) of the window film industry it became evident that thicker security glazing window film coatings provided a significant level of protection against forced entry, smash and grab crimes and flying debris.
The Federal government has employed 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 choices but all of our selections have met or exceeded the DoD and GSA Testing requirements.
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.
