Florida Security Blast Protection Glazing Window Film

You can be assured that somewhere in a government office, someone is asking whether all of the 1600 Army Recruiting offices have blast window film installed? 

You can also rest assured that there won’t be a second thought concerning the dozens of stores right alongside these locations.

So the immediate question to be asked is simple, yet a profound one:
 

If the government is only interested in protecting their recruiting office, who is interested in protecting the lives and property of the stores that line the same strip mall??

Unsuspecting retailers who just happen to be located near a high profile government target deserve the same level of protection as the target itself!

Simply put.

If you operate a store in close proximity to an Army Recruiting office or Federal facility call Advanced Film Solutions, 877-575-3456.

If you own a retail store or offices adjacent to a potential target of terrorism than calling Advanced Film Solutions to protect your location is a smart alternative.

Tampa Bay, Orlando, Sarasota Window Tinting Was Not Created Equally; Why It Matters?

We hear what competitors are saying to our clients.  tumblr_nbtvg5Us6c1tx21j0o1_500

There is a fascinating mixture of fiction sprinkled with fact.

A combination of hyperbole and total nonsense all offered up with a facade of seriousness.

Let’s try to separate fact from fiction.
 
 
All films are the same, so you should choose the lowest price?


Obviously this is an untrue statement and typically offered up by a hack window tint person who is buying the cheapest tint available.

It’s in their interest for you to suspend disbelief and accept that false premise.

Does that cheap steak at some hamburger grill taste the same as Ruth Chris?

getcooler If your answer is yes than go ahead and buy some no name tint for your home or car!

Advanced Film Solutions recommends the very best quality window films.

VISTA and  Huper Optik that are NFRC certified and are supported by documented performance characteristics.

Gated communities limit or restrict the use of reflective metallic window films.

For these homes we propose our Huper Optik Ceramic Non-Metallic Window Film.

Low E All Season Window Film that works in the summer as well as the winter!

How do you want your windows to look from the inside and the outside?

Obviously there are aesthetic differences between the lower quality films and the top of line VISTA and Huper Optik.

OK we understand that, but are your films that much better? Now can you match their pricing??

We carry the spectacular LLumar films and we obviously sharpen our pencils on a case by case basis therefore for the economically focused we offer the LLumar or our SunTek series.

 If you are looking for a highly efficient film and have no problems with reflectivity from an interior view, than the LLumar is a terrific solution. 

VISTA is manufactured by the same company  and was designed specifically with lower interior reflectivity.

VISTA Films are dual pane (IG) safe.  The lifetime warranty is transferable and quite frankly the VISTA Dealer has to meet a much higher level of dealer requirements than a LLumar dealer.

VISTA and LLumar are superior window films as are the ceramic Huper Optik  window film.

That’s value difference and why Advanced Film Solutions has earned our customer’s trust!

Tampa Window Film NFRC Certification In Plain English

NFRC certification is an important step in the window film industry.

The International Window Film Association has been collectively involved in meetings during the years in setting the guidelines for certification and ensuring that window film would be included as an energy efficient device.

img_home_7

Accurate measurements of a particular window film performance on glass have been well known for decades. The issue for the window film industry was how to objectively quantify these performance characteristics, and how to certify the accuracy of these results?

 
 

By accomplishing this requirement Eastman Performance Films (Huper Optik) enables consumers to make an objective decision (the level playing field) and potentially qualify for rebates and incentives.

Window manufacturers have had a head start (as you might expect) The removable temporary labels currently appear on their certified products.

Window film was a different situation since the installation is typically a retrofit on an installed window.
 

Your particular home (let’s use Florida for example) have windows that are typically 1/8″ clear single pane (commercial glass may have 1/4″ glass.)

These clear glass types are extremely inefficient since they allow so much solar energy (heat) to be transmitted into your home. The installation of an energy efficient window film can reduce that heat by a tremendous amount, saving cooling costs (your energy bill!)

The certified lab tested performance of the installed window film will now become available to consumers.

Obviously certain types of window film may be more “energy efficient” than others based on their visible light transmission (how dark?) and their SHGC (how much heat is entering the room?)

This is the trade-off between energy efficiency and aesthetics.  As experts in energy efficient window film we can guide you through these selections so that you can make the best choice for your specific home.

The fact that Eastman Performance Films was the first window film manufacturer to take these steps and demonstrate their accurate performance of their window film demonstrates their commitment to the consumer.

Huper Optik became the second company to receive certification and we are proud of both of our key manufacturers for their diligence. 

hy

As a personal aside; it is this consumer oriented mindset at VISTA Window Film, that encouraged Advanced Film Solutions to become a Vista Window Film independent dealer.

Yet another reason to consider VISTA or Huper Optik Window Film for your Florida home!

We highly recommend that you consider an energy retrofit for your windows by installing our Vista or Huper Optik window film as compared to your cost for replacing your windows.

Glazing Protection Window Tinting Tampa, 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!

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

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!
