Glass, Perimeter Protection Security Window Film, Florida Installations

Advanced Film Solutions is Tampa, Orlando and Sarasota’s premier installer of clear and tinted safety and security window film.

These clear (and solar) films provide impact resistance and tensile strength and protect store and home interior from break-in and anti-spalling of flying glass.

Typical installations on retail storefronts employ the optional fastening systems that create a window system. This further enhances the security protection since the glass will not easily separate from the steel or aluminum storefront frames.

The film acts a little like the PVB interlayer in laminated glass and holds the glass together when it’s broken.

Another security use, which you may have seen at your workplace, is to mitigate the effects of a bomb blast, by preventing shards of glass flying around the inside of a building and causing injury or falling onto the pavements below.

Frequently Asked Window Film Questions Tampa Bay, Orlando, Sarasota

Are window films installed on the inside or outside of the windows?


We typically install on the interior side of the glass. This increases the life expectancy of these films supported by our lifetime warranty.

Consumers are concerned about window film having a perceived tendency to break windows.

 

Advanced Film Solutions represents the finest window film technology manufactured by Eastman Chemicals.

Our expert technicians and sales consultants have decades of experience and we absolutely know our way around a window.bbb

There are films that are specifically built for cars that absorb heat rather than reflect the heat away.  These films can create thermal stress.

 

Unfortunately some car tinting bozo’s will apply this incorrect film on a home or commercial application.

  1. Our films are warranted against glass breakage and we provide a written automatic glass breakage warranty. Optional glass breakage warranties are available that match your existing window warranty for extended periods beyond 5 years.
  2. Our Vista Films are designed for maximum efficiency on IG units. Our Huper Optik non reflective films are also warranted against glass breakage!

Advanced Film Solutions represents Eastman Chemicals LLumar, Vista shatter control films. These meet GSA and DOD specifications.

How does our film compare to 3M Window Film?

The 3M dealer told us that their prestige film blocks 97% of the heat, works better at angles and keeps the home warm in the winter as well as keeping homes cooler in the summer.

Well. .

The key criteria for window film specifications and performance characteristics is the total solar energy rejected or shading coefficient.

These attributes are tested by objective independent laboratories and documented and certified by the NFRC.

Advanced Film Solutions installs NFRC rated films that can be confirmed by this agency for their capabilities.

 

All window films and glass seem to reject heat better when the heat object (SUN!) is at an angle to the glass.

The maximum sun angle is 90 degrees (this is the standard measurement for maximum accuracy) Any representation that an angular measurement improves the heat rejection capabilities of the film is simply ridiculous and disingenuous.
