UV and Fade Protection
Prolonged exposure to the sun can cause furniture, artwork, flooring and even expensive window treatments to lose color and break down over time. But even more critical is the increased risk of skin cancer and premature skin aging, caused by harmful UV rays entering through the windows of your home. Now, 3M™ Window Films give you an easy, economical way to protect your furnishings – and your family – from the damaging effects of the sun, while allowing you to enjoy all the beauty and brilliance of natural sunlight.
Sources of fading
What is it about constant sun exposure that makes furnishings and memorabilia fade? UV rays are the principle cause of fading. Solar heat continually heats fabrics and other surfaces, which can accelerate breakdown and discoloration over time. Visible light can accelerate fading.
How do window films work?
3M™ Window Films let in the light you love while reflecting much of the sun’s heat away from your home. They reject up to 78% of solar heat and filter visible light. At the same time, they block up to 99% of harmful UV rays to help protect your furnishings – and your skin. And these non-metallized films provide amazing clarity, so they won’t spoil your view.
UV radiation and your health
According to The Archives of Dermatology, dangerous UV radiation from the sun is associated with about 90% of all skin cancers. And studies published by the National Institute of Health show that UV rays can not only cause impaired wound healing and even DNA damage, but that UV exposure is apparently responsible for 80% of visible facial aging signs. By blocking 99% of the sun’s UV rays, 3M Window Films offer an effective, economical way to protect your family and safeguard your valuable furnishings.
Lower cooling costs.
Give your cooling system — and your wallet — a break with 3M™ Sun Control Window Films. Stay cool and comfortable all day long by rejecting up to 78% of the sun’s heat coming through your windows.
Reduce home cooling costs up to 30%
Let in the light, not the heat. 3M Window Films help reduce hot spots in your home by blocking out the sun’s heat, to help reduce the demand on your cooling system. Reduces the need for shades, blinds and other sun-blocking window treatments that interrupt your view.
Use less energy
By blocking out heat and keeping cool, conditioned air in, 3M™ Window Films will make your windows more efficient and save you money on energy costs – at a fraction of the cost of replacing your windows.
Let in the light without the heat
3M Window Films increase their performance at a faster rate as the sun’s angle increases. That means less energy demand on your cooling system when the sun is working its hardest – and more comfort for you and your family.
How do window films work?
3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film
You don’t need to completely replace your windows to start reaping the benefits from higher efficiency windows. Installing 3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Films can help you enjoy the benefits of a Low-E or “Low Emissivity” window, which improves the insulation value of a typical single pane window close to that of a double pane window. Likewise, it increases the insulation value of a typical double pane window close to a triple pane window—and it does all of that at a fraction of the cost of having to replace the window itself.
Control your climate and increase your efficiency while maintaining the appearance of your home year-round by talking to a Authorized 3M™ Window Film Dealer Installer about what 3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film can do for you.
Improve safety and security.
Break-ins. Natural disasters. Stray baseballs. Whatever the cause of impact, glass doors and windows are vulnerable to damage – and broken glass poses a hazard of its own. You can’t control crime, accidents or the weather, but you can get an added layer of protection – one that’s virtually invisible. 3M™ Safety & Security Window Films make glass harder to penetrate and hold shattered pieces in place, helping keep both people and property safe from dangers posed by intruders, severe weather and broken glass. For an even higher level of protection, the 3M™ Impact Protection Attachment System securely fixes the filmed window to the frame, turning your window into a robust shield capable of withstanding forced entry, earthquakes and even bomb blasts.
Break-ins and burglaries
3M Safety & Security Window Films make it harder to break through your glass doors and windows. Instead of a quick smash and grab job, a would-be robber is faced with a window that won’t yield quickly or quietly. And the longer it takes an intruder to break through, the longer you have to get help.
Accidents and natural disasters
Whatever the cause of breakage, 3M Safety & Security Window Films can help reduce the risk of injury from flying glass. These micro-layered and tear-resistant films hold the fragments in place – where they can’t hurt your family or your belongings.
