Solar Control

Energy Efficiency: Commercial Window Tinting

At given time of the day one side of your building is too hot and the other side is too cold, but by blocking the sun’s heat (up to 79%) your building temperature is determined by your HVAC system, not the sun’s heat. Our 3M films send solar heat away from your building, saving up to one ton of air conditioning for every 100 square feet of glass exposed to the sun.  What other improvements can you make that can pay for themselves in no more than five years and as little as 6 months? In addition to saving energy, our films also protect your furnishings, drapes, carpets, woodwork, and artwork from destructive UV rays that cause fading and deterioration.

  • Reduce up to 79% of solar heat
  • Eliminate UV fading
  • Improve comfort by eliminating hot spots
  • Reduce annoying glare
  • Improve your buildings exterior appearance

A More Pleasant Workplace

In addition to energy savings, and interior protection, our films reduce glare for your people, and give them a more comfortable work area, increasing employee moral. Nothing hurts employee or tenant retention like discomfort, and our window films are a great way to keep your people happy.  Also, our films create a more unified look on the buildings exterior, enhancing appearance, adding privacy and disguising any interior disarrays such as lights, blinds, and/or furniture.

Safety and Security

Protecting People and Property  

3M Window Films can improve your building by increasing safety and protecting against flying glass shards during severe weather and explosions.  Also, your information (computers and cell phones) and property are protected by improving security, which deters smash-and-grab thieves and does not allow intruders easy access to the building. Our security films protect your interiors by blocking 99.9% of UV rays and offer the additional benefit of Solar Control.   It is also available in an attachment system, denying removal of the glass from the window frame.
