Smart Window Film Comparisons Orlando Gated Communities

Orlando gated communities throughout the region have restrictions that prohibit the use of reflective window film.

The issue is the appearance of the windows and typically a reflective film will alter that appearance and while these coatings are extremely effective and economically priced the demand for a non reflective film became acute.


Advanced Film Solutions is Florida’s leading window film installation company. We represent the world leaders in window film sales and technology.


These coatings include Eastman Chemical, Saint-Gobain, Madico and Hanita.

Leading the way for deed approved coatings is the incredible Huper Optik films.


These patented multi-layered films block visible light without the use of dyes. Dyes can fade over time and change color. Huper Optik nanoceramic films filter out IR invisible wavelengths from the Sun. In combination these ceramic and spectrally selective films offer the best heat to light ratio of any window film.


Advanced Film Solutions compares these selections against our limited 3M window film competition.

The 3M films that can meet deed restrictions are their prestige series and their repackaged ceramic films.


The 3M prestige 40 is their most energy efficient film but unfortunately these films do not block as much heat at our Huper 20, 30 or 35%.

By the way the 3M Night Vision films are reflective and we typically offer the Vista or Llumar films as a better choice (clarity, energy efficiency, warranty) than their NV film. 

Huper Optik is the number one choice for condominiums and any gated community.
