Security Glazing Window Film, Forced Entry Protection, Florida

Advanced Film Solutions is Florida’s leading window film installation company focused on reinforcing commercial and residential glass openings.

Thicker (8 ML) glazing security films have documented safety improvements compared to unprotected glass. These coatings hold glass in place during a forced entry attack which can be the result of burglary, vandalism, terrorism or violent intentions.

Advanced Film Solutions represents the leading suppliers of safety and security glazing films. These solutions include:

  • LLumar and Vista Security Films manufactured by Eastman Chemical
  • Madico and Sunscape
  • Armorcoat by Saint-Gobain
  • SunTek by Eastman
  • Huper Optik by Eastman
  • Johnson Window Film
  • Avery-Dennison Hanita (manufactured in Israel)

Independent testing documentation is available for all of these solutions covering Federal Government GSA and DOD standards as well as ASTM and UL testing.

It should be noted that typical testing is done with wet sealant attachment systems, notably Dow Corning 995 structural silicone (the industry standard)

It should also be noted that the solar versions of these coatings, IE security glazing films that also feature solar properties for reduced energy usage and or privacy elements meet the same security life safety criteria.

Landmark institutions and buildings throughout the world utilize these systems.

Recent horrific events at schools in the USA have also heightened the awareness of the advantages for implementing these systems when replacing entry level glass is cost prohibitive.

As a personal aside it should be mentioned that 3M security window film offers no additional life safety advantages in in their thinner iterations (5 ml) they are promoting weaker solutions.

Further their solar security combination films are limited to a small number of choices and their attachment systems offer no addition safety or security benefits despite an unusual price premium or suggested improvements in life safety based on micro-layering technology.

Advanced Film Solutions is happy to provide documentation highlighting and demonstrating these facts.

Security glazing window film is a practical, affordable and functional choice for property managers, security and campus facility managers who require force protection, window hardening, fragment retention and intrusion protection.

 security-window-film-1

A local warehousing distribution company was extremely concerned with the glare they had through their higher windows. 

In particular this problem became acute during the winter months when the angle of the Sun is lower in the sky.

Employees were complaining and management was also concerned that burglars could easily break through their windows stealing valuable inventory.

They needed a dual benefit solution to tackle both problems and the best solutions was our solar security control shatter resistant window film.

 

Glare control was achieved with our installation of Silver 20 Reflective Film combined with 8 ML polyester and and our shatter resistant adhesives.

Advanced Film Solutions has several reflective film solutions that also provide shatter resistance and crime protection.

Glass Burglary Glass Protection Window Film Safer Tampa, Clearwater Stores

As we approach the end of summer, retail stores across the region are taking preparations for increasing security protection for assets and people.


Advanced Film Solutions can limit losses with the installation of clear (or solar tinted) thick shatter control window film.

These films create an invisible barrier that reinforces the glass making it much more difficult for thieves to shatter the windows or doors and gain easy access into the retail store.

 

We also secure the perimeter of the glass where the film meets the frames using a structural silicone sealant that further strengthens the glass/frame/film attachment.
These are economically priced solutions that won’t detract from the curb appeal of your store. 

The tinted versions that combine effective solar properties that cut glare, heat and UV  may be a wise decision since lowered electric costs and improved comfort can make your store inviting.
