They specified  a blast tested protection security film that meets GSA Standards for fragment retention glass systems.

Combination thicker 8 ML, Solar Security Film provides strong protection against forced entry and blast events.

These thicker coatings offer a dual benefit of energy savings, glare rejection and virtually eliminating the UV.

At the same time these coatings attached to the frames with Dow 995 meet the documented expectations of security and facility managers.

Our window film is available in a variety of shades and reflectivity, allowing you to enjoy natural light without unwanted UV, heat and glare.

Tampa Bay, Orlando, Sarasota, Selecting Window Tinting Installation

Today’s consumer faces enormous challenges given the conflicting alternatives available in Florida’s window film marketplace.


Here’s some insider advice for you to consider for selecting the dealer and the brand that meets your requirements.

DIY:

   Unless you are extremely handy or have window film installation experience; doing the installation yourself is problematic at best.

The films sold in big box houses like Home Depot and Lowes tend to be lesser quality than the professional grade films used by window film installation professionals.

 

After all your home is your largest investment.


Your windows are essential to maintain ambiance and home value. 

No one wants dyed purple films or bubbles that will block your view or devalue that investment.

Professional window film dealers should be insured and members of their local Better Business Bureau.

Having an A Plus Rating for 11 straight years is a plus!

Certainly a window film business should have a business license and be able to furnish the proper credentials to enter your home.

These stipulations are important when choosing your installation professional if only to differentiate the moonlighter from the pro. 

What is important is your lifetime warranty from the dealer as well as the written guarantee from the film manufacturer.

Brands:

We represent the leading window film brands in the industry.
These suppliers represent more that 90% of the residential and commercial window film sold in the USA. 

Most of these manufacturers have had their films independently tested by labs as part of the NFRC.
Warranty:

Most window film manufacturers offer a lifetime residential warranty. Several offer extended transferable warranty typically for their premium film lines.

Commercial warranties vary depending upon the film selected but generally this warranty is for 10-15 years.

The SMALL BUSINESS ADVANTAGE:

Speaking on behalf of window film dealers across the USA we are typically family owned businesses with deep roots in your local community.

We have a passion for excellence and we take pride in our business and body of work.

Personally I strongly believe in identifying the brand of film and the manufacturer.

The brand lets you know what you are investing in and the specific performance characteristics of that film. Comparing apples to apples like the NFRC ratings takes the mystery out of the buying process.

There are vast differences between these films.

Some are tremendous energy savers using highly reflective films using stable alloys.  Several films are far less reflective from an interior perspective so your night views are protected.

There are certainly consumers who prefer non-reflective films and this is when we would propose nano-ceramic films like VISTA and Huper Optik.

“Caveat Emptor- Buyer Beware!”


We founded our company on meeting and exceeding expectations and in earning word of mouth referrals.
