Glass windows and doors not only provide access to the outdoors and allow natural light to filter into the room, but they also help to enhance the architectural design of both homes and offices. They make rooms feel more light and spacious.
However, glass is a fragile material and can make homes vulnerable to break-ins. It is also a poor insulator, allowing both heat and cool air to pass through. This forces people to use more air conditioning in the warmer months and boost their heating during winter – meaning a greater energy usage and higher bills.
Thankfully, 3M™ window films can help resolve these issues.
What are the Benefits of 3M™ Protective Film?
3M™ window film is a treatment applied to glass that increases its strength. It is available in clear, as well as a range of tint shades and styles. There is also a safety-only or solar-only option.
The benefits 3M™ window films provide include:
3M™ Window Films Provide UV Protection
3M™ films provide UV protection, reducing glare and blocking 99% of harmful UV rays through specialised reflective technology. This helps to reduce fading on furniture, soft furnishings and other items.
3M™ Window Films Provide Insulation
3M™tinted window film blocks 78% of the sun’s heat, keeping your room cooler in summer. This means you don’t have to crank up the air conditioning quite so high – which reduces your energy usage.
As the transfer of heat through the glass is reduced, this also means that during the cooler months less heat is lost from inside. So, your room will remain warmer and less heating will be required.
So, you can save on energy costs throughout the year.
3M™ Window Films Improve Security and Privacy
3M™ safety & security films make glass windows harder to break, protecting the building from being broken into.
Furthermore, the loud bangs on the window during any attempted break-in will alert residents, giving them time to call the authorities. The difficulty of smashing the glass may also deter the criminal due to fear of being caught.
3M™ Window Films Boost Privacy
Many 3M™ window tinting options increase daytime privacy, by reducing visibility into the home from the outside.
This gives people the ability to move freely in their homes without worrying about being watched.
3M™ Window Films Create Style Within Homes
3M™ window film can also add style to a room. It can create a feature or add subtle privacy, whilst keeping the space open and allowing natural light to shine through.
The most popular places to install privacy or decorative 3M™ films include:
- Bathroom windows
- Shower doors
- Meeting rooms
