One unfortunate result of stay at home orders is the closing of many non essential businesses in the Tampa Bay area.
Storefront businesses like retail shops, restaurants, jewelry stores are closed. These unmanned locations are a target for burglars. Whether you have an alarm system and video surveillance is immaterial. These thieves smash and grab inventory before law enforcement has time to respond.
Some business owners have installed plywood like we would during hurricane events. Obviously this is labor intensive and an eye sore.
Advanced Film Solutions installs protective glazing security window film on your storefront glass including doors and windows. These are clear optically transparent coatings that serve to hold glass in the frames. We attach the high security impact strength film to the frames to create a complete system that prevents intrusion. More importantly these systems are inexpensive, effective and are warranted for 15 years.
These are the very same mitigation films employed by the Federal government throughout the USA and major retail stores, landmark buildings, schools and houses of worship.
When these difficult times are over our films will still protect your location from impact, shattering and UV damage.

The question at hand is how to decide between a strictly solar control window film as compared to a thicker (8 ML) clear or solar safety window film?
Solar films are thin film coatings available in a wide array of light transmissions. These coatings stop UV and as much as 85% of the total solar energy (Heat!)
Thicker safety iterations perform the solar control function but as they are much thicker these versions have a far greater puncture resistance and impact capabilities.
Above and below our installation at Sarasota International Airport for protective glazing blast mitigation concerns.
There are less solar security versions than the thinner versions and a slight cost uplift for the thicker coatings as compared to the thinner versions.
Advanced Film Solutions offers several brands of solar films and safety films manufactured by Eastman Chemicals LLumar Select and Vista as well as SunTek.
We also install Madico and Sunscape, Avery Dennison Hanita and Solar Gard/ Armorcoat films.
If you are concerned about home intrusion or burglary or your home or office is subject to flying debris or an errant golf ball you should consider the thicker versions.
The industry is circumspect about defining the thicker films as a storm protection mitigation device. These films do hold the glass in the frames when properly attached but the window will likely shatter whereas a code meeting shutter will prevent the window from breaking.
Advanced Film Solutions will discuss all of your options and provide the very best custom solutions all with a lifetime warranty.

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.

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!
