3M Commercial Warranty

3M Commercial Warranty Explained

Tim Traxler 3M

3M has become a world-renowned leader in window film research and development. They are known as being one of the most trustworthy film companies and make it a point to provide customers with the best experience possible.  All 3M commercial-use film is protected by a comprehensive warranty that can benefit you and your employees for years to come.

What’s Covered Under a 3M Commercial Warranty?

3M commercial window films are covered by a set-year warranty. This means your films are protected against bubbling, cracking, peeling, tearing, discoloration, glass breakage or seal failure as long as they are under warranty.

These warranties last anywhere from 2 to 15 years, depending on the type of film and its average “lifetime.”

How Long Does 3M Window Film Coverage Last?

Each 3M window film series has a specific set of functions and therefore comes with a unique warranty agreement. Below, you’ll find the length of each film’s specific 3M warranty.

  • Sun Control (Commercial): 10 Years
  • Sun Control – Night Vision (Commercial): 12
  • Sun Control – Prestige (Commercial): 15

Additional Warranties

PA Window Tint will include 3M™ Impact Protection System Adhesive during installation to help fortify your windows. While this comes at an extra cost, it provides significantly more protection for your employees or students and also adds two years to your warranty.
