How Advanced Film Solutions Won The Tampa Window Tinting War

After 16 plus years of running my own company in the fascinating world of Tampa window tinting it may still be premature in declaring victory over competition, but hey; we are getting close!

 The challenge for Advanced Film Solutions and is to consistently execute a superior business plan providing clients with the very best value proposition in window film!

Bar none! 
 
  • Advanced Film Solutions created a winning foundation and competitive advantage leveraging our superior solutions versus the perception of 3M window film superiority.

  • Our VISTA and LLumar combination provides our clients an unmatched selection of choices.  Our VISTA dual reflective films are comparatively inexpensive and offer sustained views particularly during the evening hours.

  • Our Huper Optik ceramic films gave Advanced Film Solutions a quantifiable advantage over the 3M Prestige Film series.
  • Huper Optik has superior optical clarity and they manufacture these films without any dyes.

  • 3M recognized that they needed a ceramic film so they re-boxed another companies film.  This private label film has higher reflectivity than our patented Huper Optik.  They are charging the same or higher for less heat rejection and they are limited to a narrow 5 foot width.

  • Advanced Film Solutions placed focus on energy conserving window films for consumers. That’s why we have exhibited at the Tampa Living Green Expo for five straight years.  

  • Advanced Film Solutions expanded operations into Bradenton and Sarasota.  We expanded into the Orlando region.

  • NFRC ratings separate fact from baloney which is particularly critical when we compete against their prestige series.
 
 
 
 
 

NFRC Rated Window Tinting Ideal For Tampa Bay Homes

Advanced Film Solutions is one of the busiest window film installation companies in the USA. 

Small wonder given the tropical climate and number of sunny days we enjoy in the Bay area. As we start 2023 the heat won’t be getting any better!

 

We differentiate our window film solutions from our competition by promoting window film that has been objectively tested and rated by the NFRC.

What is the NFRC and why is this important to an educated homeowner?

VISTA NFRC
 

NFRC is a non-profit organization that administers the only uniform, independent rating and labeling system for the energy performance of windows, doors, skylights, and attachment products.

Their goal is to provide fair, accurate, and reliable energy performance ratings so that:

•  Architects, builders, code officials, contractors, homeowners,
and others can compare different products and make informed
product choices.

•  Building officials, state government employees, and others involved
in code development and enforcement can determine if products
meet local codes.

•  Government-and utility-run energy efficiency programs can establish
performance requirements and standards.

•  Manufacturers have a fair and level playing field to compare products and an accurate method of showing the energy benefits of new designs or technology.

 
Advanced Film Solutions represents these NFRC rated films:
 
  • Vista Films
  • LLumar
  • 3M Fasara
  • Huper Optik
  • Solar Gard
  • Armorcoat Films (listed under Bekaert, but now a St. Gobain company)
  • Avery-Dennison Hanita
  • SunTek
  • Madico

Consumers can make educated choices and conduct apple to apple comparisons.
