Today is National Talk Like A Pirate Day so in honor of that. . .

Many readers have seen the Captain Phillips movie with Tom Hanks. The freighter is attacked by Somali pirates and the action ensues.

Shipping concerns throughout the world are concerned with this threat and they also can experience small arms fire, etc. that can breach the glass in the control rooms, pilot house, etc.

Thicker clear security glazing films were required and the team at Advanced Film Solutions was ready to provide our LLumar shatter film solutions.

We have completed several ships and are scheduled to complete several more.

The very same clear and tinted versions of these films can provide safety and security for homes and businesses throughout the state of Florida.

Solar security versions factor out glare, heat and lower monthly electric costs.

Several versions provide daytime privacy along with the aforementioned benefits.

This is particularly valuable during a lock down or when your goal is to protect personnel from targeting from an outsider (think scoping!)

Advanced Film Solutions provides attachment systems that meet the physical characteristics of your window system. Typically we use Dow 995 structural sealants. These are the wet seal products used during blast and windstorm testing.

Tampa Window Tinting DIY Vs. The Pro’s At Advanced Film Solutions

You’re ambitious, frugal and handy

 AND. .

Tired of that glare, heat and fading.


You’ve heard of tinting for your car and when you walked past the Home Depot display for window tinting; you couldn’t resist buying a roll, or two of Gila Film.

So far- -so good?
 


Advanced Film Solutions has performed more than 24,000 home installations since we launched our company in early 2007.

Quite a few (too many to mention) were fix up installations.

We were called in to rip off these tints and do it right. . .the second time with Vista, Huper Optik or LLumar Film.

We’ve seen our share of installers over the years.

Guys and ladies who actually do this type of work for a living; and there is a wide gap in installation skill sets and ability.

 
  • Bubbles: Too much water, or too little.
  • Gaps: The glass area between the window frame and the film. A novice leaves wide gaps that let sunlight in and look horrible!
  • Straight cuts: We use film handlers to get a factory edge novice DIY tint amateurs do free hand cuts.
  • Lines and creases: When our installers do a project there are no lines or creases. That’s because they have developed the skill over thousands of installations to do outstanding work.
  • The film itself: The film you buy for DIY installations is typically very limited in variety, durability and aesthetics. Of course; you might be a big fan of purple tint??
  • Warranty: We provide a written lifetime warranty and our Vista, LLumar and Huper Optik warranty is one time transferable to the next homeowner. When you do it yourself; there isn’t any warranty.
Had enough?

These durable coatings reduce heat gain without adding any reflectivity to the interior or exterior view.

 The goal was to provide nearly total UV reduction, lower heat gain by 70% and eliminate hot spots that can increase demand particularly during the hotter summer months.

 

Glare has been reduced by an impressive 70% and that serves to make the interior building quality much more productive for students and staff.

Our team of installers met the clients’ targeted goals for completion and the University is enthusiast in their appreciation for  the professional implementation of this energy savings film.
