Advanced Film Solutions is Florida’s leading window film installation company focused on reinforcing commercial and residential glass openings.
Thicker (8 ML) glazing security films have documented safety improvements compared to unprotected glass. These coatings hold glass in place during a forced entry attack which can be the result of burglary, vandalism, terrorism or violent intentions.
Advanced Film Solutions represents the leading suppliers of safety and security glazing films. These solutions include:
- LLumar and Vista Security Films manufactured by Eastman Chemical
- Madico and Sunscape
- Armorcoat by Saint-Gobain
- SunTek by Eastman
- Huper Optik by Eastman
- Johnson Window Film
- Hanita (manufactured in Israel)
Independent testing documentation is available for all of these solutions covering Federal Government GSA and DOD standards as well as ASTM and UL testing.
It should be noted that typical testing is done with wet sealant attachment systems, notably Dow Corning 995 structural silicone (the industry standard)
It should also be noted that the solar versions of these coatings, IE security glazing films that also feature solar properties for reduced energy usage and or privacy elements meet the same security life safety criteria.
Landmark institutions and buildings throughout the world utilize these systems.
Recent horrific events at schools in the USA have also heightened the awareness of the advantages for implementing these systems when replacing entry level glass is cost prohibitive.
As a personal aside it should be mentioned that 3M security window film offers no additional life safety advantages in in their thinner iterations (5 ml) they are promoting weaker solutions.
Further their solar security combination films are limited to a small number of choices and their attachment systems offer no addition safety or security benefits despite an unusual price premium or suggested improvements in life safety based on micro-layering technology.
Advanced Film Solutions is happy to provide documentation highlighting and demonstrating these facts.
Security glazing window film is a practical, affordable and functional choice for property managers, security and campus facility managers who require force protection, window hardening, fragment retention and intrusion protection.
