Huper Optik Ceramic Window Tinting For Tampa, Orlando, Sarasota Prestige Homes

16779293482_c8f04b1f5a_o

The battle for consumer and commercial customers was waged between the ceramic technology of Huper Optik versus the multi-layered optical film from 3M (Prestige) sold at Home Depot kiosks as well as an assortment of window genie window washer agents and reps.

HO 
Huper Optik had the head start in high performance non metallic window films while 3M introduced their film in 2005.
 

The non reflective window films differ from the classic versions of sputtered metal films in several respects.

These films are not shiny or reflective which suits deed restricted communities and is the preferred aesthetic requirement of many homeowners and businesses.

Huper Optik meets all deed restrictions as well as all HOA rules since your home’s windows are not mirror-like.

Metal films offer privacy and are very effective in their ability to factor out heat, but they can alter the “look” of your glass.

Heat is not reflected, rather the heat reducing can be found in the ability of these films to reject infrared (invisible) heat.

Which film has won this battle?
 
 
 
NFRC Certified Huper Optik!
 
 
 
Huper Optik 30
 
Huper Optik optical clarity as compared to prestige is a sure winner. Side by side comparisons easily demonstrate that this comparison in clarity is not even close.
 
3M film is noticeably hazy.
 

Make certain you are comparing installed prestige films since the 3M film cards do not have their hazy adhesive included on the sample.

 
Huper Optik film does not alter the hue of the light streaming through the glass.

Prestige has a clearly visible blue-ish shift.

 

Huper Optik hard coat has superior durability when compared to prestige. 3M adds a dyed coating that is easily scratched off. The color of the film is consistent and can not be easily scratched off.

Huper Optik Ceramic films are multi-layered and patented.

There are a host of single ply films made in Arizona being resold under a number of competitive brand names. 

This includes 3M’s re-boxed single layer ceramic film. The obvious limitations of these single layer films are narrow width and exterior reflectivity.

Price considerations certainly are significant since the knock off 3M film seems to be priced at the same levels as the patented Huper Optik!

We’ll show you why our Huper Optik won the battle in Florida and throughout the USA!

Sarasota, Tampa Bay, Orlando Eastman Window Tinting Comparisons 3M Home Depot

One of the laments we hear in the window film industry is that  homeowners only have a limited awareness about window film.

They have no idea about the multiple benefits they might enjoy with these energy savings coatings.

This has everything to do with advertising and communications.

The cost to grab consumer awareness is extremely high and the return problematic. 

Small wonder that a retail store like Home Depot would join up with our 3M window film competition to offer in home installations.

Advanced Film Solutions competes against 3M Window Film and their Home Depot agents and we are very familiar with their “pitch ” and even more familiar with their limitations.

Advanced Film Solutions provides a suite of solar and solar security window films manufactured by Eastman Chemical, the world leader in window film technology and market share.

Our winning brands include Vista Film, LLumar and non-reflective ceramic film: Huper Optik.

All of our window films are NFRC certified . This takes the sales-speak out of your decision making process.

You may have seen a sleight of hand demo at the Depot store that seemed to show a clear film blocking incredible amounts of heat.

What you didn’t know was that the heat lamp and meter are tuned to a very narrow and specific wavelength which does not represent the solar spectrum of our Sun.

In plain words- -it’s a gimmick, an illusion, a trick!

That clear prestige film has average total heat rejection in the 50%’s. That’s quite a difference from the 97% you may have been lead to believe!

And if someone told you that their film somehow works better at an angle, you should read this post.

Check their NFRC rating as well as their own website!

 Are You Living In A “Horror Story” home?

 It’s obvious to any educated person that the root cause of problems around that summer at Camp Crystal Lake had everything to do with the heat and glare coming through the cabin windows.

omg

 
Imagine growing up with all that UV, glare and Sun blasting through your child’s log cabin room glass?

 

Clearly Mrs. Voorhees never called Advanced Film Solutions and heaven knows the end result of that oversight!

Friday The 13th is much more than a date on the calendar.

Tampa, Orlando Sun Room Window Tinting Lexan, Acrylic Ready

Many of our neighbors have Florida sun rooms that utilize Lexan (acrylic, polycarbonate, plexiglass) windows rather than glass

Home builders at the time these homes were built, promoted these systems as a less expensive alternative to glass.

There were also building code and tax considerations that made this choice preferable to many home owners.

 polyzone
 

These rooms are terrific right about now as the temps start to decline.

In the summer months these rooms become unlivable!


There is a low cost solution that will block the heat and UV and cut the glare.

Standard window films are not recommended for polycarbonate windows. These films will fail in a short amount of time.
