Tampa, Orlando, Sarasota-Bradenton Protective Glazing Window Film

We are all painfully familiar with the series of threats, both real and inferred, targeting religious institutions across the USA.

These threats are not isolated to a specific religious group or category of school.

Childcare Centers, K-12 as well as community colleges and universities face dangerous times and concerned communities are taking proactive measures to increase people and asset protection

Advanced Film Solutions is one of Florida’s leading security protective glazing window film installation companies.  We have protected Universities, child care centers and religious institutions and Houses of Worship throughout the region.

Protective glazing films are employed by the Federal Government to protect Military personnel, Federal buildings, state and local governments and landmark building that may be the target of terrorism threats.

These coatings meet strict standards and documented, tested capabilities to withstand blast and intrusion.

Our team professionally installs these coatings to the interior (and exterior in some cases) of the building envelope on the exterior facing windows and doors. Attachment systems are utilized to fix the film installation to building frames thus creating a complete system that bonds the glass in place.

Shatter resistant coatings are available in clear as well as combination solar iterations that will lower interior temperatures, provide privacy and lower monthly electric cooling costs.

These invisible systems are cost effective and offer superior life saving benefits.

If you are responsible for securing your facility we recommend that you inquire about a free estimate.

Gated Community, Deed Restricted Florida Gets Huper Optik Ceramic Window Film

Keeping heat, glare and harmful UV from entering your home is serious stuff here in the Tampa Bay, Orlando or Sarasota Bradenton area.

Many homeowners suffer with single pane clear glass windows and sliders.

Drapes, shutters and blinds may offer privacy and some glare control but they provide very little relief from the everyday harsh Florida sun.

Replacing windows is a very expensive proposition and in many cases unnecessary.

Window film can stop 99.9% of the UV and up to 75%-80% of the heat.

Advanced Film Solutions has the most complete portfolio of Eastman dual reflective films like LLumar and Vista.

These are energy efficient films that offer incomparable heat control.

These films present a reflective appearance on the exterior face of your windows.

This can be a benefit when privacy is required but nevertheless there are many instances when the reflective appearance is not preferred or simply prohibited by your HOA rules or Deed Restrictions.

The solution is our Eastman Huper Optik series of nano-ceramic IR filtering coatings.

The Huper Optik films are dye free so the color is stable and won’t fade over time. This is a significant advantage over the 3M prestige films.

col

Huper Optik adhesive quality is vastly superior to the hazy adhesives used by 3M prestige

Huper Optik offers more light transmissions including darker 20%, 30% and 35% while 3M is limited to their prestige 40 in their darkest choice.

If glare is an issue (and when isn’t it?) this is yet another superior advantage.

Both 3M and Huper Optik filter out IR wavelengths and of course both films work better at angles (this is a 3M sales tactic that has no merit in fact.)

Huper Optik and 3M are NFRC certified so consumers can get objective performance comparisons by referring to this quasi-governmental agency.

We are happy to provide free estimates and sample films for your HOA approvals.

See The Light. Window Film For Florida Deed Restricted Homes

Homeowners doing their online research will quickly discover that there are solar control coatings that block heat while maintaining the appearance of your windows and sliders.

These non-reflective films meet deed restrictions and Home Owner Association rules that prohibit reflective films.

The challenge for window film manufacturers was to develop a coating that filters out large quantities of heat while keeping the amount of light transmission high.

Reflective films certainly filter out heat, light UV and glare but again they create challenges for the deed restrictions and do alter the appearance of the glass.

Non reflective dyed films are one alternative but the solar absorption is generally too high for IG glass units and the dyes wear down very quickly under the relentless Florida sunshine.

The solution was the patented dual layer ceramic films developed by Huper Optik.

Huper Optik ceramic and spectrally selective films filter out IR wavelengths (invisible light spectrum) and an assortment of light transmissions depending upon the film selected.

It’s important to note that there are no dyes in the Huper series while our 3M competition offers multi-layered Prestige film with dyes.

Huper Optik is available in darker light transmissions that offer greater glare and fade protection while the lighter 35% to 70% light transmissions block nearly 70% of the total solar energy.

The bottom line is maximum heat rejection with a better light ratio than any competitive coating.

Since these coatings are less reflective than glass your HOA will quickly approve.

Daytime views and night views are preserved.
