Tampa Universities Get Safer Window Film Protection

The largest university in Tampa had safety concerns based upon real and present threats they continue to face.

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.

They were also concerned with daytime privacy and energy cost savings.

Advanced Film Solutions installed our VISTA 28 Shatter Control Window Film System.

All exterior facing glass now has this versatile protection reinforced with Dow 995 attachment system.

Advanced Film Solutions completed this project.

Whether you own or manage a retail store, convenience store or restaurants smash and grab crime continues to be on the rise.

Locks are effective but the easiest method of store entry is through glass doors and windows.

Improving School Perimeter Security Glazing Window Film

School Security and safety administrators face unprecedented safety challenges.

There is no need to repeat the tragic recent history of on-campus violence and terrorism.  Adding to the equation are issues of workplace violence that transfer over under the purview of your security directors as well as local law enforcement.

Perimeter protection is critical.

 

Windows and glass doors remain a weak link and the objective of glazing protection films is to delay, detract and deny entry.

Essentially we are slowing down the assailant allowing additional time for campus security or law enforcement to respond.

The window film solution increases the strength of the glass envelope.

Shatter resistant films were originally developed for blast mitigation.

Fragment retention, mylar films are used extensively on Federal government buildings and military facilities throughout the world.

Blast standards have long been quantified by the GSA and the US Department of Defense.


Advanced Film Solutions is a local provider of these security glazing films and all of the films in our portfolio meet or exceed GSA test criteria.

Application:

Clear or tinted 8 ML or greater transparent film coatings are installed on your existing glass windows or doors.  These applications are further strengthened with attachment systems (wet sealant, mechanical or BondKap)

Tinted iterations provide privacy and solar benefits that the clear versions do not provide.

Given energy costs and reduced carbon fossil fuel concerns these dual combination films can provide a ROI above and beyond their primary security function.

Application ranges in cost based primarily of the scope (amount of Sq. Ft, as well as difficulty.)

It’s unfortunate that we need to discuss these options but any risk analysis will include hardening the glass and the most cost-effective measure you can undertake is the retrofit installation of these glazing security films.
