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.

Huper Optik Ceramic Window Tinting For Tampa, Orlando, Sarasota Prestige Homes

16779293482_c8f04b1f5a_o

The battle for consumer and commercial customers was waged between the ceramic technology of Huper Optik versus the multi-layered optical film from 3M (Prestige) sold at Home Depot kiosks as well as an assortment of window genie window washer agents and reps.

HO 
Huper Optik had the head start in high performance non metallic window films while 3M introduced their film in 2005.

The non reflective window films differ from the classic versions of sputtered metal films in several respects.

These films are not shiny or reflective which suits deed restricted communities and is the preferred aesthetic requirement of many homeowners and businesses.

Huper Optik meets all deed restrictions as well as all HOA rules since your home’s windows are not mirror-like.

Metal films offer privacy and are very effective in their ability to factor out heat, but they can alter the “look” of your glass.

Heat is not reflected, rather the heat reducing can be found in the ability of these films to reject infrared (invisible) heat.

Which film has won this battle?

NFRC Certified Huper Optik!
Huper Optik 30
Huper Optik optical clarity as compared to prestige is a sure winner. Side by side comparisons easily demonstrate that this comparison in clarity is not even close.
3M film is noticeably hazy.

Make certain you are comparing installed prestige films since the 3M film cards do not have their hazy adhesive included on the sample.

Huper Optik film does not alter the hue of the light streaming through the glass.

Prestige has a clearly visible blue-ish shift.

Huper Optik hard coat has superior durability when compared to prestige. 3M adds a dyed coating that is easily scratched off. The color of the film is consistent and can not be easily scratched off.

Huper Optik Ceramic films are multi-layered and patented.

There are a host of single ply films made in Arizona being resold under a number of competitive brand names. 

This includes 3M’s re-boxed single layer ceramic film. The obvious limitations of these single layer films are narrow width and exterior reflectivity.

Price considerations certainly are significant since the knock off 3M film seems to be priced at the same levels as the patented Huper Optik!

We’ll show you why our Huper Optik won the battle in Florida and throughout the USA!

 It’s obvious to any educated person that the root cause of problems around that summer at Camp Crystal Lake had everything to do with the heat and glare coming through the cabin windows.

Imagine growing up with all that UV, glare and Sun blasting through your child’s log cabin room glass?

Clearly Mrs. Voorhees never called Advanced Film Solutions and heaven knows the end result of that oversight!

Friday The 13th is much more than a date on the calendar.
