Home Security Protective Window Film For Florida Homes

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.

12992_618168704883271_1326451465_n

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.

These choices include Eastman Chemical’s LLumar, Vista and SunTek security films.

Madico and Sunscape security films.

Armorcoat by Saint-Gobain

Johnson Laminating

Hanita Films manufactured in Israel.

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.

security-window-film-3

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 apperance, 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.
