Property managers and retail store owners recognize that the majority of store break in’s are through unprotected glass doors and windows.
Alarms react but by the time it takes law enforcement to react and respond the thieves are long gone with your merchandise.

Keeping heat from entering your home is a challenge for Tampa Bay homeowners.
Blinds, curtains and shutters can provide privacy and certainly the aesthetic appeal of these window accessories improves home value.
Unfortunately the tropical heat remains constant throughout the spring, summer and fall.
How does a savvy homeowner solve this conundrum?
Advanced Film Solutions solar blocking window film is installed directly on the interior surface of your windows. These transparent coatings filter out nearly 100% of the UV rays while stopping as much as 85% of the heat from entering the interior.
Built for Florid’as heat; these films are warranted for a lifetime and your view is always protected.
In the past window film coatings were darker and typically reflective.
Today consumers have many more choices.
Huper Optik ceramic films are designed to factor out IR heat and in combination with ceramic coatings you can factor out visible light heat as well as the invisible hat wavelengths.
Totally non-metallic these films meet all deed restrictions and gated community rules.
The best time to tackle rising cooling costs and maintain comfort throughout the year is right now.
We have demonstrated our capabilities throughout the eleven years and 13,000 installations since we launched our company.
Our experience prior to establishing Advanced Film Solutions was spent at 3M Company where we developed our window film experience as National Sales Manager.
Florida home and business owners have a unique set of requirements. We obviously have more heat, glare and sun days than any other region of the country.
Our goal was to separate ourselves from the competition by offering our clients the very best heat rejecting solutions. This is more than a subjective position. There are fundamental performance characteristics of window film that position one window film solution as a superior choice compared to another.
These points of superior performance cover a wide array of variables:
Durability of the adhesives.
Clarity of the finished installed coating.
The appearance of the film in terms of reflectivity or non-reflectivity.
The NFRC rating of the film and anticipated performance, independently lab tested and certified.
The impact strength, puncture strength, etc, of the solar and clear security film
We know the advantages of one solution over another. That’s why we offer multiple brand and product choices to match our customer’s requirements to their practical and aesthetic objectives.
In terms of installation capabilities we were determined to employ the very best installers with a proven track record and years of experience.
We are fortunate to have the very best installation team in Florida including two of the top eight installers in the world tinting competition held recently in West Palm Beach!
Fighting heat, glare and UV damage takes the very best window film and the top of the line installations.
Advanced Film Solutions, with offices in Sarasota, Tampa Bay and Orlando is justifiably proud of our teams success over the last 11 years since leaving 3M Window Film.
We have consistently striven to meet and exceed our customer’s requirements. Our installers placed in the top eight in the world during the recent International tint-off contest in West Palm Beach and we have earned six straight Super Service Awards from Angie’s List and an A Plus Rating from the Better Business Bureau.
Superior installations and the capacity to handle any size job including airports, Universities and homes throughout Florida are just some reasons our clients trust their homes and offices to Advanced Film Solutions.
The window film we promote is an obvious essential component for our success. The Eastman Chemical portfolio of window film is unmatched in the variety of choices throughout their many leading brands.
Home and business owners understand that your home and office windows and doors are the weakest point of entry.
Burglars simply smash your windows or sliders and gain entry in seconds.
Advanced Film Solutions has a dynamic solution that will protect your home from impact and burglary while simultaneously lowering your energy costs, eliminating UV and maintaining comfort.
Our Eastman Solar Safety Film is manufactured to withstand high impact. These 8 ML coatings have superior puncture strength, tensile strength and is available in dozens of iterations.
One of our clients experienced an attempted break in but fortunately they were protected with our Vista Security Solar Film. These thieves were persistent and had to bend the door frames to gain entry!
Our application held and allowed time for law enforcement to respond.
Homeowners in the Tampa Bay, Sarasota and Orlando area already have heat gain, UV and high cooling costs that our thinner solar films tackle every day. These thicker solar security films provide the best bang for the buck providing both security and energy positives for your home.
