HOME SHOW

This is a fast paced world and most consumers have enough things going on that getting their car tinted or home windows coated is way down on their priority list.

Sure they know living in the Tampa area means a constant battle against heat and road traffic construction.

They know that paying 30% a month more for their electric bill by not having window film is not exactly a good plan!

Advanced Film Solutions is an expert window film company.

We know more about window film than seems reasonable by any measurement.

We deal with large commercial clients, government offices and restaurants throughout the region.

We have done upscale mansions and landmark buildings.

But you don’t really care about all that since you think window film is a commodity.

Something you might have done yourself ten years ago or at the very least it shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg!

Given that perception it’s small wonder that many consumers go cheap.  They respond to a cardboard sign stuck in someone’s yard.

Don’t trust their home to some knucklehead that has mug shots as their Facebook photo.
We pay attention to our  clientele’

Advanced Film Solutions is Tampa’s ONE STOP resource for home tinting window film.

We recommend the Dow 995 structural silicone wet glaze system.

How we compare to 3M Security Window Film:

215779_454133907953419_711633018_n

As a matter of aesthetic comparison 3M has an extremely limited portfolio of thinner security films.

  • They do not offer a silver or neutral 20, 35,40 or 50% VLT
  • They offer only a thinner 5 ML dual reflective 25% VLT
  • Their clear film is available in a 6 ML
  • They repackage another companies  8 Ml and 14 ml film 
  • There is no objective independent testing for win, blast, impact or intrusion that our solutions are not equal or superior.

There is no demonstrable advantage for thinner film as 3M offers and their tear resistance does not present superior capability during GSA or DOD blast or ballistic testing.

Adhesive clarity and haze are known issues with the 3M ultra films (the repackaged film has less distortion but is limited to a 60 inch width)

Bottom Line:

LLumar Protective Film

Glazing Protection Window Tinting Tampa Bay, Orlando, Sarasota

Many schools, hospitals and government buildings are considering the application of security window film at main entrances and ground floor accessible windows.

These thicker (minimum 8 ML) film is professionally applied to the existing window pane. The film is attached to the frame so that in the event the window is shattered, the film system will keep the glass in the opening, making it much more difficult for an intruder to gain access.

Glass is the weakest and most inviting point of entry. Slowing down or stopping entry can mean the difference between tragedy and life safety!

Advanced Film Solutions provides window protection and solar tinting combination window film in the Tampa, Lakeland and Orlando area.

Commercial installations like the VA Hospital and USF and hundreds of retail stores and homes have been protected by Advanced Film Solutions.

There are numerous alternatives in the appearance of these coatings. Many clients prefer the invisible versions for maximum visibility.

1902855_725779230788884_704829533_n

On the other hand there are scenarios where privacy is extremely critical. In these situations we recommend a host of reflective versions that provide the safety requirements while lowering energy costs, eliminating glare and offering the same shatter capabilities.

Frankly no other Florida company offers as many choices!

Having earned the Super Service Award from Angie’s List for four straight years we know our customers get the best installations with a lifetime warranty.

I liken it to wine selection.

Let’s say you are looking for a good wine you would go to the local shop and ask the owner which wine he would recommend?

If you looked at his shelves and noticed that they had only one type of wine it would hardly surprise you if he responded – -“pick that one from the shelf!”

We come at this from a customer prospective rather than a sole source point of view.

Having spent decades involved in window film we know which films have the best performance, features, advantages and benefits. 

We ask questions and consult, rather than simply proposing a “one size fits all” approach.

The “best” is quite often a very subjective adjective.  When we speak about the best film solution we cover the following aspects;


1. Based on your specific requirements which window film solution will best solve your problems?

2. Quite often there are several possible solutions; the determination will be based upon your aesthetic choice particularly if your neighborhood has deed restrictions.

IMG_20131108_094009_962
3. Warranty is critical and of course our films are warranted for a lifetime
IG units manufacturers may void the warranty if window films are installed. VISTA will assume the warranty on your IG units.

5. Width is never a limitation unlike our key competitor, 3M.  The state of the art manufacturing facilities at Eastman Chemicals Performance Films and Huper Optik allow them to produce wider width films.

We never have to install film on your glass with a running seam across the entire pane!

6. Our promise is to stay ahead of the technology curve in the window film business.  The ceramic and nanotechnology window films have increased the effectiveness of residential solutions without compromising the “look” of your home.
