What’s the Best Window Film For …

Sun Control:

If your end goal is to minimize glare, prevent furnishings from fading, block excess heat, and even protect your skin, perhaps 3M Sun Control Window Film is the best option for your space. This window film can reject up to 97% of the sun’s infrared heat and up to 99% of UV rays, which can pose risks to skin health as well as create excess heat in your space. If you experience glare problems in your home or office and can’t see technology screens, we might suggest Night Vision Window Film, as it has great glare reduction, sun control, and the ability to improve privacy due to its darker tint. If you want to enjoy the benefits of sun control without changing the look of your space, we would suggest the 3M Sun Control Prestige Series. Click here to learn more about sun control window film.

These films come in a wide array of patterns, colors, gradients, and more, ranging from an opaque, frosted film, to a decorative pattern. With these films, customize your level of privacy without sacrificing natural light.

For Safety and Security:

If your main concern is improving the security of your space, we would recommend 3M Safety and Security Window Film. This anti-fragmentation, tear-resistant film has the ability to hold the glass in place should it ever be broken. This makes it difficult to gain access inside a building, allowing occupants additional time to respond to the situation. 3M Safety and Security Window Films also prevents further damage and bodily injury from flying shards of glass. Prepare your space for unwanted events like break-ins, inclement weather, and bomb blasts. Click here for more information about safety and security window film.
