Through Glass Lightly Tampa Bay, Orlando Huper Optik Ceramic Window Film

Consistantly more homeowners and commercial property managers are insisting upon lighter non reflective window films versus the darker reflective metallic films of the past.

The key for any window film researcher is to determine the proper balance between  your aesthetic requirements and the bottom line heat rejection you expect!


We believe that it’s critically important to offer consumers concise comparisons between the various window film manufacturers and in particular a direct matrix comparison to the 3M window films like their prestige film and their re-boxed ceramic film. 

This matrix compares optical clarity, total solar energy rejected on the exact same type of glass (NFRC).  We compare glare rejection (our 30% Huper Optik Ceramic for example reduces glare by a significant amount compared to the 3M prestige 40 (their darkest film in the prestige series.)

It’s this winning comparison that gives Advanced Film Solutions and Window Film USA our competitive advantage.

The unequivocal leader in this category?  Huper Optik-The German Nano-ceramic Film.

Why?


 Huper Optik Ceramic film is patented (which is a major advantage for any installation company that represents this incredible window film since all the other copy cats are forced to use a single layer and an older limited width machine.)

These lesser performance “ceramic films now offered by Johnson Window Film, Madico Advanced Ceramics, Geoshield and most recent the 3M Ceramic Film are all re-boxed some with very familiar logos on their box!

How does Huper Optik surpass these films in aesthetics and performance?

  • Their patented process allows them to use a multi layered structure.  This improves total solar energy rejection with far less exterior reflectivity than these also-ran films.
  • Less exterior reflectivity is what Home Owner Associations require in their deed restrictions!
  • All the Huper Series Films are less reflective than glass from the exterior and the interior perspective!
  • The Huper Optik Films are non corroding and are all available in 72 inch widths. This means we never seam a window for larger width glass.

  • We love the comparison because when consumers take the time to do their research we win.
  • When consumers ask for a side-by-side mock-up, we win!
  • When consumers check the NFRC for documented performance; we win!
  • We won’t waste your time with nonsense like angles of incidence or offer total crap like their film blocks 97% of the IR or worse yet, the heat?

We won’t use tricks and gimmicks like heat lamp BTU tests that imply their lighter films block more heat than a darker silver film . Any one that does this should be ashamed of themselves!

 
We prefer reality over illusion.
How about you?


Our winning strategy is founded upon the firm belief that consumers are much too smart and money is much too tight, to be mislead or bamboozled; no matter how familiar they might be with any particular brand of film.

Trust In Tampa’s Window Tinting Leader, Advanced Film Solutions

Advanced Film Solutions has been on a 11 year “roll” since leaving 3M.


We created our unique business plan to meet our client requirements by installing the finest window film choices in the industry.

We listen to our potential clients to determine how best to meet their goals. This isn’t a case of “one size fits all.”

Heat rejection can be obtained in a variety of aesthetically diverse choices.

Reflective films are economically priced and extremely durable and effective. They provide privacy during the daytime and this can be a plus if you have nosy neighbors or simply prefer that level of privacy.

 

Non reflective choices will better suit the deed restrictions you would expect in a gated community. How light or dark you prefer your light is determined by the level of light transmission selected.

On the surface this appears to be a simple process but the devil is in the details.

Our experience is unmatched.

We know there are cheap films that use inferior adhesives and lower grades of polyester. We know that given the Florida heat and bright days a coating has to be long lasting and the adhesive has to be clear and distortion free.

Our selections are best of breed in all categories.

Our films are certified by the NFRC and warranted for a lifetime of performance.

Our installers are some of the best techs in the entire world having made the finals in flat glass window film installs in this year’s tint-off competition!

Smart Window Film Comparisons Orlando Gated Communities

Orlando gated communities throughout the region have restrictions that prohibit the use of reflective window film.

The issue is the appearance of the windows and typically a reflective film will alter that appearance and while these coatings are extremely effective and economically priced the demand for a non reflective film became acute.

Advanced Film Solutions is Florida’s leading window film installation company. We represent the world leaders in window film sales and technology.

These coatings include Eastman Chemical, Saint-Gobain, Madico and Hanita.

Leading the way for deed approved coatings is the incredible Huper Optik films.

These patented multi-layered films block visible light without the use of dyes. Dyes can fade over time and change color. Huper Optik nanoceramic films filter out IR invisible wavelengths from the Sun. In combination these ceramic and spectrally selective films offer the best heat to light ratio of any window film.

Advanced Film Solutions compares these selections against our limited 3M window film competition.

The 3M films that can meet deed restrictions are their prestige series and their repackaged ceramic films.

The 3M prestige 40 is their most energy efficient film but unfortunately these films do not block as much heat at our Huper 20, 30 or 35%.

By the way the 3M Night Vision films are reflective and we typically offer the Vista or Llumar films as a better choice (clarity, energy efficiency, warranty) than their NV film. 

Huper Optik is the number one choice for condominiums and any gated community.
