TEMPERATURE CONTROL

Most people think of window film as a product that only performs during the summer months. However, 3M’s temperature control window films perform year round. Man-made heat produced during the winter months will leave the building’s envelope by traveling through the path of least resistance — the building’s glazed surfaces. Rather than simply letting this heat escape through the glass, 3M’s temperature control films reflect this man-made heat back inside the building in addition to keeping the sun’s heat outside during summer. This can reduce heat loss by up to 30% to save you money and improve occupant comfort. In addition, an energy-efficient building puts less strain on your heating and cooling system to reduce maintenance and extend the life of the equipment.




DECORATIVE & PRIVACY

Besides the general energy inefficiency of glass, another weakness of glazed surfaces is the lack of privacy. A common solution to this problem has been the costly process of acid etching glass to create a frosted appearance that hinders visibility. The application of 3M’s Fasara and Scotchcal Window Films is a fraction of the cost of acid etching, yet produces the same result. And unlike acid etching, you can create patterns such as company logos or geometric shapes for added visual effect.

GLARE REDUCTION

Windows are an architectural necessity for any building. A scenic view is the want and desire of every homeowner and office worker. Yet windows present concrete problems, especially with respect to the sun. High air-conditioning costs, furniture fade, glare, and personal discomfort caused by excessive heat, are just some of these problems.

Window film, first introduced by 3M Company in 1966, addresses these issues by reducing a combination of the sun’s visible light, ultraviolet light, and infrared heat. Whereas drapes and blinds absorb heat for solar control, window film reflects it back outside of the building. And unlike drapes and blinds which must be open and closed, window film is a passive protection that works around the clock requiring no human intervention whatsoever.

SAFETY & SECURITY

A building’s most vulnerable part is its glazing. Windows, while architecturally necessary, expose building occupants to certain dangers. Burglars gain access to homes and offices through windows and glass doors. A detonated terrorist bomb will cause nearby glass to implode at high velocities in tiny shards. Flying debris from hurricanes can smash through a window and cause harm. 3M Safety & Security Window Film reduces these dangers.

UV PROTECTION

While the sun is an extremely important natural resource, it can also cause severe damage to people and property. Over time, UVA and UVB rays entering your home or business start to fade your floors and furnishings. You can replace your furniture and refinish your floors every few years, or you can invest in 3M Sun Control Films — clearly the most economical choice.


ANTI-GRAFFITI

Graffiti artists target more than just brick walls, traffic signs, phone booths, and sidewalks – they also target glass doors and windows. But unlike those other targets, graffiti on glass is quickly and easily erased with the use of 3M Anti-Graffiti Window Film.
