Protecting your property, people and assets from vandalism, criminal entry or terrorism is unfortunately a growing concern during these turbulent times.
Glass windows and doors are the weakest point of entry and while alarm systems and night time lighting are critically important; taking the addition step of hardening your windows and doors is also crucially important.
Advanced Film Solutions installs a retrofit security glazing film to the interior or exterior of your window openings. These coatings are much thicker (minimum 8 ML) compared to the thinner solar versions.
Security glazing films are attached to store front frames using a wet seal attachment systems.
These films are available in clear and tinted versions so you can enjoy glare and heat control with additional privacy.

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.

Tampa Bay area homeowners face many challenges throughout the year.
The tropical temperatures bake our homes and offices which results in high electric cooling costs.
There is also a growing number of home invasions and burglary throughout the region.
Advanced Film Solutions with offices throughout Tampa Bay, Clearwater, St. Pete, Sarasota and Orlando help clients address these two disparate issues with the application of solar security window films on doors, sliders and ground level windows.
Your unprotected glass is an easy point of entry for thieves. Our thicker security films serve to deny, deter and delay entry. This precious time provides law enforcement more time to respond to alarms and you more time to react.
Our window film security coatings are available in clear versions as well as dozens of combination solar safety films.
Combined these coatings lower cooling costs, provide glare and UV protection and lower monthly electric costs.
Several reflective versions offer an additional daytime privacy feature which is potentially yet another benefit.
Solar safety window film is the choice for asset protection managers who protect retail stores, schools and Federal offices throughout the state.
Homeowners can also benefit from these incredible cost-effective solutions!
Florida home owners are looking for ways to lower cooling costs, improve glare control and provide UV protection for their homes.
Advanced Film Solutions thin film coatings will filter nearly 100% of the UV as well as more than 80% of the glare. These films are installed on the interior side of your windows and sliders.
Many of these selections are available in thicker iterations that not only meet these solar requirements but add home safety and security.
Shatter resistant versions will deny, delay and ultimately deter burglaries since the thief will discover that the glass remains intact.
Many property managers and retail store owners have had shatter control window film applied to their windows and doors. These thicker coatings can keep intruders out of your offices while law enforcement responds. These films aree also available in reflective coatings that will provide privacy.
Security films are employed at Federal buildings and military bases for force protection as well as blast mitigation. These tested films provide both the energy savings aspect as well as this higher level of home protection.
Today’s 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 for six straight years as well as an A Plus Better Business Bureau rating for 10 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.
