When it comes down to safety and security the thicker the window film the better.
That’s why Advanced Film Solutions recommends the 8 ML thick clear and solar safety security window films manufactured by global window film leaders Eastman Chemical, Armorcoat, Madico, Hanita, Johnson and Suntek.
The 8 ML thickness has become the industry standard because these films meet a superior level of security when tested to GSA, DoD and ASTM standards.
Thinner films like 4, 5 and most 6 ML films do not meet this security level. This includes any 3M 5 ML film. Be certain to confirm that a competitors film is not thinner than 8 ML.
Solar security films are designed to withstand impact and provide energy solar savings by filtering out heat gain while simultaneously doing their security function.
Window film can be attached to metal frames like storefront windows or sliders by using a wet sealant Dow 995 system. These attachment systems have provided that additional measure of protection to keep glass lites in the frame.
Advanced Film Solutions team of installers is fully equipped and trained in all aspects of security glazing installations.
Our residential warranty is lifetime and most commercial warranties are 10, 12 or 15 years.
