Beauty and Protection

3M specializes in protecting homes and businesses through the power of innovative 3M insulation science. Traditional window films use dark tint to keep the sun out of homes, compromising the view and the amount of sunlight that gets through a window.

3M’s Prestige Series and Ultra Prestige series films use multilayer, non-metallized optical films rather than dark tint, allowing 40 to 70 percent of the natural daylight to pass through your windows. Unlike metallic-based tints, which can become corroded and interfere with window aesthetics, Prestige film preserves your view perfectly.

Powerful Sun Control

Sunlight exposes your home and family to harmful UV rays, which can bleach your furnishings and damage your family’s skin while heating up your home. 3M Prestige Series keeps those harmful rays outside while still allowing plenty of natural light inside your home. As light ways interact with 3M Prestige film, they either reflect away or pass through hundreds of layers. As the angle of the sun increases, so does the performance of 3M film. In fact, Prestige Series films perform at their optimal level during the heat of midday.

Prestige films can reduce the impact of UV rays on furnishings like these:

●        Art

●        Furniture

●        Drapes

●        Rugs

●        And more

Increased Comfort

Sunlight inside your home can cause the temperature inside to heat up, putting extra strain on your energy bill and creating uneven thermal spots within your home. All of this is also extremely hard on your HVAC system. But Prestige films reject as much as 60 percent of the heat coming through windows including 97 percent of the sun’s infrared light and 99 percent of UV rays. This adds up to a more comfortable and even temperature inside your home.
