Tampa, Clearwater, Sarasota, Orlando Window Film Advanced Solutions

Today consumers have the advantage of being able to do their research about window film solutions using Internet resources like GOOGLE or BING.

Unfortunately no matter how detailed websites are or our online references might be; the number of potential suppliers and conflicting information can make deciding on which vendor to contract a daunting experience.

Advanced Film Solutions understands how confusing a decision can be and we have taken this challenge by becoming the best qualified window film supplier in the West and Central Florida area.

In terms of our product portfolio we have unique solutions like the Eastman Vista, EnerLogic and LLumar SelectPro window films.

We also represent the Eastman Huper Optik Series which are arguably the best non reflective films and these coatings out-perform the 3M Prestige Series in terms of clarity, choices, durability (unlike 3M we have no dyes in the composition) and heat rejection.

Security solar films include the aforementioned Vista Films along with LLumar, SunTek, Madico, Sunscape, Johnson, Hanita and Armorcoat.

We have a long track record of providing superior installations for residential and commercial clients. Our installations carry a full warranty and we are unique by having earned the Super Service Award from Angie’s List foreight straight years as well as an A Plus Better Business Bureau rating for 11 years in a row.

We are fully insured and have a real location (as compared to many single self employed window film dealers who work from their trucks.)

Our reputation is critically important and that’s why our installers are the best in the state of Florida.

If all this sounds like a cloud of smoke to justify high prices we can assure you that is not the case.

We provide the best solutions and we do so at a very competitive investment cost.

Our recommendation is to compare our choices and proposals against any alternative supplier.

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!
