Window Tinting Cooling Protecting Tampa Bay, Clearwater, Bradenton & Orlando Homes

Are You Suffering Through The Heat ?
 
 

Here is a snapshot of why our customers selected Advanced Film Solutions:

 
  • Safety and Security: A homeowner in Brandon visited every window film booth at the Tampa Home Show and had each dealer give an estimate for home protection.

    We had more choices, better warranty and a proven track record including 8 straight years of winning the Angie’s List Super Service Award!

  • Glare and heat!  A homeowner in Fish Hawk Ranch Estates has south facing glass that gets the full brunt of the Sun all afternoon.  They live in a Deed Restricted Community, and selected VISTA for glare and heat control. Their dining room and front foyer are now 70% cooler since we completed that installation!

  • A Church in Valrico has installed our Vista Luminance 28 on the Parsonage. The residence was getting blasted with heat and faded furnishings.  Now the glare and heat are reduced by 70% and there is additional privacy.
  • Hunters Green: This is also a deed restricted, gated community and they opted for Vista 28 8 ML film on the side and rear windows, while installing Huper Optik Ceramic 8 ML on the front of their home.
  • Ruskin: We installed LLumar 20 8 ML film for energy savings and outstanding safety of this thicker film.

Building managers are aware of methods to reduce energy consumption particularly in the harsh economic climate these last several years.

Property managers recognize that window film dramatically improves their bottom line by reducing the heat gain and improving tenant comfort and satisfaction.

  • Which window film solution offers the best value?
  • Which window film provides the best return on investment over a 25 year life cycle?

  • Which window film has the aesthetic properties that match the building’s requirements?

Advanced Film Solutions is uniquely positioned to address these questions and provide the most choices compared to any other company.

We offer economically priced films that remain the “bread and butter” films.

These neutral reflective or silver reflective films have been used on commercial properties since the 1970’s.

Home Protection Security Window Film, Tampa Bay, Orlando

Keeping your home safer is a major concern for every Florida home owner.

The weakest link in your home defense are your windows and sliders.

Burglars can break through your glass in seconds. Your burglar alarm system can notify law enforcement but in the time it takes for them to respond the “bad guys” have taken what they want.

Advanced Film Solutions provides 8 ML and thicker security glazing window film.  These are the very same films used by the Federal government to protect landmark government buildings like the Capitol and White House.

Thicker glazing films provide superior puncture and impact protection that slows down intruders.

We reinforce sliders with attachment systems that provide additional strength.

Eastman Window Film Comparison Vs. 3M Tinting

If there’s one thing I’ve learned the last 14 years since retiring from 3M, it’s that many consumers recognize their logo and assume their window film  matches their brand reputation.

This is the “perception” challenge we must overcome despite the reality of 3M’s weakness in their window film solutions.


A feature-benefit-performance characteristics comparison (documented rather than hyped) weigh overwhelmingly in favor of the coatings Advanced Film Solutions represents.

Here is a sampling of indisputable FACTS that quantify the superiority of the solutions we represent.

There are many fine manufacturers of window film products but the unquestioned global leader is Eastman Chemicals.
 

 In many product categories of the diverse Eastman portfolio our competition 3M Window Film offers no alternative product solution.

For example- – –
 
  • Bronze films in multiple light transmissions and interior and exterior reflectivity.

Heck we have blue films, green films and gold films; but why brag?

  • Dual reflective films: Here again the comparisons between 3M and Eastman are almost unfair.  Our Eastman portfolio includes the dynamic Vista Film dual reflective films ranging from the 14% Ultimate, the 18% Celeste, 28% Luminance and 38% Mirage. We also have lighter dual reflective films in a 48% and 58%.
  • Our LLumar DR series also ranges from a darker 5% and 15% to the 25, 35, and 45% light transmissions. 3M?

    They have a NV 15, 25 and 35 (I introduced this back in 2000!) and 3M re-boxes a 15% and 25% from another company under the Affinity name.

    Our Vista and LLumar clear adhesives compared to the 3M pressure sensitive adhesives are far superior in terms of clarity and durability.

    The re-boxed Affinity has the outside company’s adhesive which is a lesser quality version of the LLumar adhesive.

    Small wonder that interior designers choose Vista.

    Choices equate to meeting exactly the requirements of our clients rather than the other way around!

  • Non reflective residential and commercial films in escalating light transmissions starting at a 5%.  (See LLumar DL Series) 
    These films are ideal for privacy particularly when a reflective film is prohibited. 3M dealers may attempt to offer a car tinting substitute since they have no solution for this requirement.
  • One-Way Vision Films ideal for maximum privacy and heat rejection.

  • Solar security safety shatter films in a Silver 20, Neutral 20, 40 and 50 along with dual reflective shatter solar films in various light transmissions. 

    3M discontinued their Silver 20 security film as well as their 50% neutral film. 

  • Ceramic non metallic non-dyed Huper Optik patented and available in light transmissions ranging from 20-70% 

(3M has contracted with an outside coating company that supplies a single layer ceramic film for many companies.

That ceramic film is only available in a 5 foot width and does not have the heat rejecting performance of the patented Huper films) It is also more reflective than the patented Huper Optik films.

Let’s now compare clear solar films that block IR and UV without altering the appearance of the glass.

Our Eastman portfolio includes Vista Spectra select, Terre films and the dymanic Huper Optik Sech Drei series.

Huper Optik has zero dye in their film (unlike 3M!)  and its durability and scratch resistance easily out-perform the 3M film.

The optical clarity of our Vista and Huper clear films easily surpasses the 3M prestige film a fact that is self evident in any direct side-by-side comparison!

Our warranties on Vista Films are transferable and our glass breakage warranty standard as well as optional exceed the 3M protection in scope and value of replacement.

The point is made and further it’s being made by a veteran of 33 years at 3M and once upon a time having been the National Sales manager of 3M Window Film.
