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.

Tampa’s Coolest Guys Just Say No To Cheap Car Tinting

Coolness:  Has No Age Limits!

It’s always hot in Tampa and that’s why Tampa’s Coolest Guys & Gals get their car windows tinted at Advanced Film Solutions.

Sure there are cheap tint shops and Craigs List types all around the area. 

They’ll tint your car for a baloney sandwich.

What type of coating are they using?

 

Are they sticking cheap dyed garbage film on your windows that will quickly turn purple?

  • Do you get a lifetime warranty in writing from a major corporation like Eastman?
  • Is the warranty NO FAULT?
  • Will your tint stay as dark in five years as it looks today?
  • Will their installer do a great job and make sure they don’t scratch your car’s soft glass?
  • Will their tint interfere with GPS or Satellite Radio?
  • Are they insured?
  • Do they use precision cut software for perfect installations?
  • Are they rated A PLus with the BBB
  • Have they earned the Super Service Award from Angie’s list the last 7 years?

Call Advanced Film Solutions where the answer is YES!

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

UV Protection

before

All Vista window films contain exclusive UVShield™ Technology that blocks up to 99.9% of harmful UVA and UVB rays that help protect interior furnishings and occupants from sun damage.

A Superior Adhesive System

Vista window film’s Clear, Distortion-Free (CDF) adhesive system chemically bonds film to the glass for longer lasting performance. The CDF adhesive has proprietary chemistry built into its backbone that forms a chemical bond to the glass once it is activated by the installation solution. This chemical bond is much more stable than specific or mechanical bonds offered by traditional pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA), affording it durability and longevity.

Scratch-Resistant Coating

As the pioneer in coating technology, Vista window film’s
proprietary formula helps to ensure durability and easy maintenance. The hard surface coating is formed using acrylics and an ultraviolet curing system. This provides a long-lasting durable surface that stands up to
abrasions and cleaning.

Clarity

All Vista films are made with “Ultra Clear” polyester that will not distort your view – day or night.

Advanced Film Solutions has developed the widest and deepest portfolio of security glazing films.
