Sun Control

The more windows there are in your building, the greater the benefits of installing 3M Sun Control Window Film. That is because 3M Sun Control Window Film does much more than simply control heat gain or loss. It also improves the safety, security, energy efficiency, and appearance of your building - all at a fraction of the cost of installing special glass.

Save energy every day of the year. Keep heat from getting in and you will not have to pay to pump it out. Unlike drapes and blinds, 3M Sun Control Window Film rejects up to 79% of the heat that would otherwise come through the window. That can translate into a savings of about one ton of air conditioning for every 100 square feet of glass exposed to sunlight. And with the transition to more environmentally safe chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants to power air-conditioning units, you will be able to offset the diminished chilling capacity by keeping heat out.

In addition to keeping solar heat out during the summer months, 3M Sun Control All Season Film keeps you warmer in the winter months by reflecting manmade heat back into the building. 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.

3M Sun Control films block out 98% - 99% of UV light, thus protecting you from the sun's harmful rays and significantly reducing fabric and furniture fade. In addition, 3M Sun Control films reduce glare to improve your indoor visibility, especially with respect to computer monitors and televisions.

3M Sun Control Window Films provide enhanced window security by helping to hold glass fragments in place should an explosion occur nearby. In addition, window films also help deter smash and grab crimes by making access through a window more difficult to an intruder. For increased security, 3M manufactures security window films, products specifically designed to hold flying glass in place should an explosion or terrorist attack occur nearby. Some security films also provide the energy benefits associated with Sun Control films.

3M Sun Control Window Films are maintenance-free, vary in reflectivity (from low reflectivity to high reflectivity), and range in color (from neutral to silver). 3M offers a window film to suit your various energy needs.
