Burglary Glass Protection, Window Tinting Tampa Bay, Orlando

It only takes a burglar seconds to smash through your glass doors sliders or windows.


Sure the alarm will sound and notify law enforcement, but how long does it take for your inventory, cash and other valuables to be stolen?


You could have bars installed but that takes away from your curb appeal and it’s an eyesore.

The solution?

Shatter control security glazing films from Advanced Film Solutions.

Thicker varieties of mylar films designed to withstand impact.  These are the very same shatter films/fragment retention films applied to Federal Buildings and Embassies throughout the world.


Retailers and chain stores have these invisible clear or slightly tinted films installed throughout the country.

As an optional improvement for your store’s protection we will attach the film/glass and frame into one complete wet glaze system using Dow 995.

These films delay, deny and deter entry allowing police response and preventing losses.

Church Work, Securing Worship With Shatter Window Film

Advanced Film Solutions installed our safety and security fragment retention window film systems on several high profile buildings in the Tampa, Sarasota, Clearwater, Lakeland and Orlando region.



There are several religious facilities that clearly have a higher threat level than others.

Let’s be frank.

Muslim and Jewish Houses of Worship receive more threats and have unfortunately a greater risk level in these difficult times.

 How thicker security films work to control flying glass?

Thicker safety and security films have been used effectively for decades.

The Federal Government and internationally governments and large corporations are very familiar with these transparent security systems.

Glass is the weakest link in your perimeter protection planning.  Blast protection, flying debris and vandalism can create a dangerous environment for parishioners and visitors.

The window film system consists of thicker window films (8 ML and thicker) attached to the frames using wet sealant Dow 995 or mechanical attachment systems.

Many of these films are also available in solar versions that can reduce the heat gain in your facility as well as provide daytime privacy for occupants.
