Control the sun's negative effects & retain illumination and visibility
Although many people may not realize it, sunlight is one of the most damaging natural elements coming into a person’s home or business. If not properly controlled, sunlight brings with it harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, glare on computer monitors and television screens, discoloration and fading of valuable furnishings and most costly of all, excessive heat that can only be mitigated with air conditioning.
Until relatively recently, blinds, awnings or shades were needed to lessen these byproducts of the sun. The issue is that in reducing these negatives, the positive quality of natural light is diminished as well.
Introducing Sun Control Films
Fortunately, a solution to this problem exists in the form of 3M Sun Control window films. Sun Control window films allow light in and keep the harmful heat and damage of the sun’s rays out. Best of all, these benefits are available to you without you needing to change the overall appearance of your home or business.
By repelling and rejecting heat, you’ll save money by reducing your energy demands while simultaneously increasing the comfort of your living or working space. This is great news for residents and businesses alike:
Homeowners and renters — Both homeowners and renters will save on home cooling costs
Landlords — Energy savings translate to greater tenant retention
Retailers — Retailers appreciate Sun Control films because they protect high-value merchandise in store windows from fading and create more pleasant environments to shop in, with lower operating costs
Offices — Businesses can save money and realize productivity gains from greater comfort and reduced glare for workers
In fact, consumers of all types can benefit from Sun Control films. There are three different varieties of Sun Control films available:
Prestige Series Heat Control Window Tinting Film
3M’s Heat Control Prestige Series window tinting films are the ultimate in high tech, providing clear film technology and outstanding heat rejection. With little to no tinting, Prestige Series films let between 40 to 70 percent of visible light into your home or business while rejecting up to 60 percent of the associated heat. The reflectivity of the film is lower than glass, so all you’ll see during the day or at night from outside (or even within) is a beautiful window.
Heat from the sun’s rays comes from two different sources — visible light and invisible infrared light. 3M’s spectrally-selective Prestige Series films reject up to 97 percent of the infrared light using non-metallized multiple layers and advanced nanotechnology. Heat is reduced by up to 60 percent and up to 99 percent of all UV rays are rejected, reducing fading of objects and furnishings.
Ceramic Series Sun Control Window Tinting Film
3M’s Sun Control Ceramic Series films for glare control provide additional glare reduction while rejecting up to 80 percent of infrared light, resulting in up to a 59 percent heat reduction. Moderate tinting means between 30 to 50 percent of visible light is allowed through while 99 percent of all UV rays are rejected, protecting furniture and objects. The Ceramic Series films utilize nano-ceramic technology and are amazingly clear.
The Night Vision Series
The Night Vision Series of window films by 3M provide dual reflective technology for greater daytime privacy while permitting easier viewing of the outdoors at night due to their low interior reflectivity. Night Vision Series films are darker shaded, allowing between 15 and 35 percent of visible light into your home during the day and rejecting up to 71 percent of heat from the sun’s rays. Higher exterior reflectivity means your privacy is increased both day and night.
3M Sun Control Films help you achieve control over the sun’s negative effects while retaining the positive qualities of illumination and visibility. You’re afforded greater privacy while saving money and helping to protect the environment via reduced energy use.
