Make Break-Ins More Difficult!
Splintered, flying glass is one of the dangerous consequences of, both natural and man-made, disasters. Vista films are specifically designed to hold broken glass in place, lessening the chance of injury and property damage. It also makes forced entry more difficult for would-be vandals and burglars, which is especially important for retail establishments.

Edgelock Attachment System
When events such as vandalism or bomb blasts cause glass to break, the films flexible construction and pressure-sensitive mounting adhesive help hold the shards on the film. This reduces the potential for personal injury and property damage. Safety film is also referred to as anti-shatter film, glass fragment retention film, blast mitigation film and Mylar. The Window Film Specialists provides a number of different attachment systems.Edgelock Attachment System: This method used for enhanced glass retention secures the safety film to the window frame with a structure sealant, silicone adhesive (similar to caulking). The safety film is first installed to the glass as a daylight installation and then secured to the frame with a structural sealant - Dow 995 is one of the products commonly used. Sealant is applied around all four edges of the film, overlapping the film and touching the frame to create a bond between the film and frame. This method is also referred to as a chemical attachment system.
Testing Safety/Security Films
Vista believes the most important aspect of their business is in the testing of their products, and they go to lengths to make sure it's the most extensive testing possible. They hire independent consultants to test their films under the most extreme conditions. Instead of swinging a sandbag into a pane of glass from 5 feet, Vista films are subjected to detonations of up to 10 psi - enough to take down most buildings. Vista films meet and surpass more government and international standards than any other films. When you install any of Vista products, we guarantee you the best the industry has to offer. In coastal areas, such as ours, the potential for glass breakage during storms is particularly high. Vista Security Films are an excellent, invisible choice for improving security, because they seal out wind and water even when the glass is broken.

I contacted the Window Film Specialists to install films on all the windows of my home. I have 5 sets of sliding doors that allowed the sun to heat up almost every room in the house. I had to keep the shades closed most of the day to keep the house cool. As soon as the Vista films were applied, the house began to cool off quickly. It was really an amazing difference. By the time the installer was finished I had to raise the AC temp because it was too cool in the house! The installer was very professional and did a fantastic job. I moved here from NJ where I had 3M window films installed. The Vista Films are a far superior product. The heat reduction of the Vista Films was almost immediate. I would highly recommend The Window Film Specialists and Vista Films to anyone. Thanks for a wonderful experience!
Lakewood Ranch, FL
Your company recently placed window film in our condo at Beachplace. Gabe was the installer. I want to let you know how pleased we were with Gabe, he was a meticulous installer and we were very pleased with his work. The change in the temperature and comfort level in our condo is dramatic. Our only regret is that we didn't do this years ago. Thanks for a great job.

We are extremely happy with the Window Film Specialists, Inc. We called them out to put film on sliding doors and a large window. They were on time, very friendly, informative and their price was right. They also use some great technology to schedule installations and to make payments. When they came out to install the film they were again, on time, very friendly, and did the job quickly and it looks amazing. We are so glad we called them. They are a great company who uses a great product! We will be calling them again and highly recommend you give them a call too if you are looking for window film. You will not be sorry, we promise.
