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!

Relentless Heat? Get Florida Huper Optik, Advanced Film Solutions

Advanced Film Solutions recently completed several installations with our Huper Optik Ceramic films competing head to head against 3M prestige film.

We won.



Frankly with so many arrows in our quiver we have an unfair advantage over my former company and their numerous dealers, agents, home depot people and window genies.

Our primary challenge is to dispel the perception of superior performance based solely on logo and brand reputation by offering and demonstrating superior documented Window Film.

Brand Leaders by any objective measure of sales, market share or performance where it counts:

ON GLASS!

Certainly if anyone understands the halo effect of 3M it’s a guy like me who spent 33 years at 3M waving that logo and in particular as a former National Sales Manager of 3M Window Film.

I kind’a know that stuff don’t I??

We match the right solution for YOUR Requirements!

  • Warm soft light without the (smurf) blue shift that all prestige films suffer.
  • Optical clarity particularly when the Sun hits the glass at an angle.  The 3M prestige film has a hazy cloudy appearance that is unacceptable.(Dare to compare! 

16779293482_c8f04b1f5a_o

  • Huper Optik  Ceramic films will not corrode (despite the nonsense my 3M competitor offered about rusting!)
  • By the way we will happily remove any hazy cloudy 3M Film upon request at no charge (FREE!) when you upgrade to Huper Optik!

Frequently Asked Window Film Questions Tampa Bay, Orlando, Sarasota

Are window films installed on the inside or outside of the windows?


We typically install on the interior side of the glass. This increases the life expectancy of these films supported by our lifetime warranty.

Consumers are concerned about window film having a perceived tendency to break windows.

 

Advanced Film Solutions represents the finest window film technology manufactured by Eastman Chemicals.

Our expert technicians and sales consultants have decades of experience and we absolutely know our way around a window.bbb

There are films that are specifically built for cars that absorb heat rather than reflect the heat away.  These films can create thermal stress.

 

Unfortunately some car tinting bozo’s will apply this incorrect film on a home or commercial application.

  1. Our films are warranted against glass breakage and we provide a written automatic glass breakage warranty. Optional glass breakage warranties are available that match your existing window warranty for extended periods beyond 5 years.
  2. Our Vista Films are designed for maximum efficiency on IG units. Our Huper Optik non reflective films are also warranted against glass breakage!

Advanced Film Solutions represents Eastman Chemicals LLumar, Vista shatter control films. These meet GSA and DOD specifications.

How does our film compare to 3M Window Film?

The 3M dealer told us that their prestige film blocks 97% of the heat, works better at angles and keeps the home warm in the winter as well as keeping homes cooler in the summer.

Well. .

The key criteria for window film specifications and performance characteristics is the total solar energy rejected or shading coefficient.

These attributes are tested by objective independent laboratories and documented and certified by the NFRC.

Advanced Film Solutions installs NFRC rated films that can be confirmed by this agency for their capabilities.

 

All window films and glass seem to reject heat better when the heat object (SUN!) is at an angle to the glass.

The maximum sun angle is 90 degrees (this is the standard measurement for maximum accuracy) Any representation that an angular measurement improves the heat rejection capabilities of the film is simply ridiculous and disingenuous.

Your View Matter Tampa, Clearwater, Sarasota, Ceramic Huper Optik Window Film

There’s nothing quite like a view of the Gulf of Mexico and the mangroves along the Bay.

Homes that take advantage of these views typically are designed with copious amounts of glass.


The advantages of breath taking views are subject to a down side we are all familiar with: the incredible heat, glare and damaging UV rays.

1947644_736092416424232_318734669_n

Advanced Film Solutions solar control films block 99.9% of the UV and up to 75% of the heat in our non metallic Huper Optik Ceramic films.

Our selections are less reflective than the glass itself.

This preserves your day and night views.

Neutral in appearance many of our selections are virtually invisible on the glass.

Your view matters!
