Tampa Bay, Sarasota, Orlando Window Tinting Comparisons

Competition is the engine that drives business throughout the entire window film business.

This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone since every industry has its share of solutions providers who fight for consumer awareness and driving sales.

Advanced Film Solutions is one of Florida’s leading window film installation companies. Our experience (33 years at 3M and the last twelve plus years representing Eastman Chemicals LLumar SelectPro, Vista and Huper Optik window film) is unique.

3M and Eastman Chemical are both multi-national corporations with extensive operations throughout the world and multi-billion in corporate sales.  Both have over 100 years of history from the Eastman Kodak days and 3M (Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing) founded in the early 20th century.

Window film solutions have been employed since the early 1960’s and the window film business has evolved through the innovations in thin film technology and adhesives.

Today’s window film solutions are durable and our window film solutions have documented performance characteristics as codified by the National Fenestration Ratings Council.

Eastman Chemicals and 3M Window Film offer lifetime warranties and all window films supplied by both corporations factor out 99.9% of the UV.

Eastman Chemicals is easily the global leader in sales and market share.  The Eastman Chemicals manufacturing footprint far outpaces the 3M capabilities in the window film market.

Certainly 3M has developed leadership in many diverse markets and industries but window film has not been a driving part of the 3M focus.

The Eastman superiority is evidenced by the broad portfolio of window film alternatives and this advantage is punctuated by the fact that Eastman manufactures many of the films sold under the 3M brand.

Whether one reviews the solar film suite of products or the security protective glazing films the Eastman advantage is noteworthy.

The window film advantage for Eastman is demonstrated by the superiority and clarity of the adhesives and the ability to meet consumer’s requirements thanks to multiple alternatives compared to 3M.

Solar Films:

Reflective and dual reflective coatings are the foundation of energy savings heat filtering solutions.

Eastman Chemicals LLumar and Vista Films are available in dozens of choices as compared to 3M’s limited solutions.

Eastman’s non reflective IR heat blocking films easily out-perform the decade old Prestige Film and our Huper Optik films are dye free as compared to the 3M multi-layered films.

Protective Glazing Film:

Here again the Eastman superiority outdistances the limited 3M product offering. In terms of real world impact strength, alternatives in film thickness and variety of light transmissions and appearance the Eastman edge is unmatched.

Frankly there is no comparison from a consumer benefit perspective.

The only area of debate is the topic of consumer awareness and consumer perception.

Let’s take as an example a 3M re-boxed Eastman Film.

Eastman manufactueres a lower quality dual reflective film for 3M purchase and resale.

The 3M dealer proposes this lower quality film and implies that this re-boxed film was made by 3M.

Thanks to the halo effect of 3M and their brand identity many consumers would conclude that this solution is superior to a brand that they are not as familiar with.

Our goal at Advanced Film Solutions is to level the playing field.

Once we make the case that Eastman and 3M are well established corporate giants the true competition becomes the question: Which provider offers the best solution with the best investment return.

In that debate the answer is Advanced Film Solutions and our Eastman Chemicals LLumar SelectPro, Vista, LLumar, Huper Optik solutions!

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!
