Glass Security Protection Window Film For Tampa Bay, Sarasota, & Orlando Homes

Security Window Film strengthens your home security defense by maintaining the structural integrity of the glass.

These thicker (8ML+) films also perform the same solar features you’d expect to find in thinner solar versions.

 

There is a modest up front cost for these dual benefit films but this investment is rewarded by the added safety and security that these glazing protection films provide.

Advanced Film Solutions shatter films block solar energy in the same manner as the thinner solar only versions. 

The thicker mylar films have incredible puncture strength and more aggressive adhesives.

These films when properly installed (optional fastening systems should be considered for larger window openings and sliders!) hold glass in place against intrusion and impact. 

In fact these are the very same films that protect government buildings throughout the world.

How thicker shatter films work?

Thicker safety and security window films hold the glass in place against forced entry.
 
The glass- film- and frames can be reinforced using attachment systems. 

Formerly vulnerable rear windows and doors are now much harder to penetrate.

This has the effect of slowing down would be intruders and allowing your home or business security system to sound the alarm.

Many consumers request versions that offer solar reduction properties or reflective films for privacy.

These films lower your monthly cooling costs by as much as 30% !

At minimum we recommend 8 ML thick films.

Small wonder since these are notorious energy wasters and implementing upgrades has a direct bottom line benefit.


Window Film retrofits are less top of mind for a variety of reasons but the return on investment for a solar window film application provides the fastest ROI of any alternate strategy.

Life cycle benefits are also impressive as our commercial applications have a long-term life expectancy and our warranty is 15 years.

The tangible savings in monthly energy costs can be easily determined. Less well known is the increase in employee productivity based on the improved comfort of their working environment.

Our portfolio includes several lighter choices that are virtually invisible on the glass.  These films provide superior heat rejection (or insulation winter or summer) without decreasing the daylighting.



Additionally building interiors and employees enjoy a UV free workplace.

Find Window Film To Cool Orlando, Tampa, Sarasota, Bradenton Homes

VISTA Films reduce energy usage without sacrificing the views or aesthetics.

These transparent VISTA window films are a far cry from the window tinting that many consumers may be sadly familiar
I’ve actually seen people cringe when they hear the topic of window films being discussed.

Their impression, that window film’s all bubble or turn a horrible shade of purple!
To be frank the fault for this impression is based upon the early years of window film when most films were constructed with dyed polyester.

These films had a very short life-expectancy and homeowners and businesses that invested in the early window film products soon discovered their obvious limitations.

Many of today’s Do It Yourself (DIY) window films continue to be manufactured with short-lived dyed polyester. You see it on the highways every day. Purple everywhere!

 show
  • VISTA Films simply can not turn purple because there are no dyes in the composition of these films.

  • The optical clarity of VISTA Films is incomparable.

  • The VISTA Films are warranted for a lifetime against adhesive failure, blistering, etc. etc.

The “bottom line?”

Never sacrifice aesthetics or compromise your views when you invest in VISTA Films.

That’s the reason the overwhelming majority of Interior Designers specifically recommend VISTA Films.

That’s the reason Advanced Film Solutions highlights the luxury homes we have completed in gated communities and estates
