How Window Film Protects Tampa Bay Schools & Daycare Centers

Advanced Film Solutions has been protecting schools and day care centers throughout Tampa Bay, Orlando and Sarasota with security glazing window film.

These transparent coatings are thicker and the adhesive stronger than standard solar control window film.

Typically 8 ML thick, security glazing window film is designed for maximum impact strength, tensile strength and puncture resistance.

There are instances when a privacy security film should be considered during a lock down event or safe room situation.

These films will provide visibility from the interior to the street but prevent targeting from the exterior.

The safety administrators for these institutions prefer the covert nature of these coatings.

The appearance of the school’s windows can remain unchanged or if they prefer a lightly tinted coating for energy savings and glare reduction.

The objective is to keep the “bad guys” out and security glazing window film maintains the window envelope.

These films are the very same coatings used on the US Capitol Building and embassies throughout the world.

Advanced Film Solutions is Florida’s leading installer of high security impact window films.

Today’s unfortunate challenges for student and faculty protection are the driving force for these installations.

Tampa Advanced Film Solutions Window Tinting Improves Glass

Clear glass windows and doors are what builders typically install when they build homes and offices in Florida.

Florida home owners in the tropical climate of Tampa Bay, Sarasota and Orlando understand just how many problems they face when they move into their new home.

  1. Rooms are too bright.
  2. Glare makes it impossible to watch TV or work on their computers.
  3. Furnishings and wood floors fade under the relentless heat, light and UV

  4. Privacy is non-existent.
  5. Glass is easy for burglars to break in.

Today’s high technology window film solves these issues and more.

Thin films filter 99.9% of the UV and are available in scores of light transmissions. The homeowner can easily select the perfect light transmission which determines just how light, or dark a room can be.

Typically darker films will block more heat but there are next generation coatings that factor out more IR heat along with visible light.

This allows a lighter coating to block more total solar energy than a standard metalized film.

Advanced Film Solutions team of experts works with our clients to determine the perfect customized solution.

Leading manufacturer’s include Eastman Chemicals, Saint Gobain and Madico.

Thicker versions provide dual benefits of solar insulation as well as security and glass impact strength.
