Sun Control Glass Safety Window Film Tampa Bay, Orlando, Sarasota

Our Advanced Film Solutions crews performed expert installations with an assortment of solar and solar security films.


One noteworthy installation was for a home in Hudson, FL located in Pasco County.


Our client has a large sun room that baked every afternoon since the majority of their windows face west. Their objective was to reduce the heat and glare and UV.

Stop by this weekend at the Tampa Home Show!

The open expanse of glass left them feeling like they lived in a fish bowl.

The solution was our Vista 28 Luminance Film. Glare and UV nearly eliminated and they achieved day time privacy as well.

They also selected our thicker 8 ML version to improve shatter strength and impact resistance against intrusion.

The dual benefit of a safety solar film provided peace of mind as well as a more comfortable; energy efficient home!


Advanced Film Solutions technicians completed a major project for security film on the City Hall Building at Altamonte Springs with the same Vista 8 ML film.



We were able to easily demonstrate the better performance (heat rejection as well as safety) compared to the 3M Night Vision thinner security films.

Whether you are a homeowner concerned about burglary or a property manager, building owner or school safety official; 2019 is the right time to consider installing shatter resistant window film.



  • Retail store windows to reduce property and asset loss through window break-in.

  • Public and private school windows and entry doors to delay intruders and preserve life and property.

  • Health care and hospitality sectors to protect staff and visitors.

  • Government buildings (Federal, Sate and local municipalities) protecting against violence and potential terrorist attacks.

Does Security Glazing Window Film Work?

This is the obvious question and Advanced Film Solutions with offices throughout Florida and resources throughout the USA relies upon the world leading manufacturers of safety and security glazing films.






Mylar coatings manufactured by Eastman Chemical LLumar, Saint-Gobain Armorcoat, Madico, Hanita Safety Zone, SunTek have all been independently tested to meet the following building safety criteria:


There are numerous advantages for the retrofit application of these coatings.  The practical ease of installation means your property gets immediate protection for the existing windows and entry doors.

Given the considerable budget amount required and capitol expense for replacing the glass with laminated safety windows the ROI of window film is exceptional.


These films are used on military bases, army recruiting offices and Federal buildings throughout the USA.

These very same coatings protect major retail stores as well as landmark buildings throughout the world.

The coatings Advanced Film Solutions installs are exactly the same thickness with exactly the same attachment systems.

Higher Education Energy Savings Starts With Window Film



 Today’s window film solutions provides the fastest ROI of any retrofit project that might be initiated to lower energy costs.

Documented results and long term life cycles of these aftermarket coatings has earned a new respect for this very mature product.

ncstAdvanced Film Solutions has completed 14 thousand home and commercial installations since we left 3M Window Film in 2007.


Our focus has been in assisting home owners and business decision makers lower their cooling and heating costs without reducing the aesthetics of their glass or limiting the optical clarity of their windows.


We completed a larger project at NC State University Hill library where the sustainable solution was our Eastman Chemical manufactured Huper Optik film.


These durable coatings reduce heat gain without adding any reflectivity to the interior or exterior view.

 The goal was to provide nearly total UV reduction, lower heat gain by 70% and eliminate hot spots that can increase demand particularly during the hotter summer months.


Glare has been reduced by an impressive 70% and that serves to make the interior building quality much more productive for students and staff.

Our team of installers met the clients’ targeted goals for completion and the University is enthusiast in their appreciation for  the professional implementation of this energy savings film.


The success of window film systems to improve comfort and reduce energy demand and the fact that these NFRC certified films will continue to provide these benefits long into the future are raising the profile of window film as a solution across the USA.
