3M Window Films allow you to bring light that enters your building under control. Our extensive line of films provides an elegant means for solving many of the most challenging aspects of managing the energy use of a building.
3M Safety and Security Window Films keep the potential for forced entry and weather damage in check.
3M Window Films help lower your energy costs, our films reject up to 79% of the solar heat that may otherwise come through a window.
By diminishing the heat, we increase the comfort of your people by helping to eliminate hot and cold spots on your building. By blocking out the sun's heat, your building's temperature is determined by your heating and ventilation system, not the position of the sun.
3M Window Films send the sun's heat away from your building, saving you up to one ton of air conditioning for every 100 square feet of glass exposed to the sun.
Performance that keeps your home beautiful.
A standard of Performance Metallic Films Can't Match.
Until recently, most window films that rejected heat were tinted dark and used metals. In addition to being highly reflective, these films were susceptible to corrosion. Because these unique films use no metals, they are the first clear films to offer a variety of selections that eliminate this problem and perform to the industry's highest standards.
Low Reflectivity That's a Beautiful Reflection on You.
One of the major drawbacks of traditional window films is that they tended to act like mirrors. Our new Prestige Series has substantially reduced relectivity. Our styles have interior reflectivity that is less than, or just 1% greater than glass. Your windows will only reflect your commitment to your home looking beautiful.
Beautiful is Also Cool.
These films selectively reject up to 97% of the sun's infra red heat to help keep your home cool and lower your energy bills. And unlike other films that can only achieve similar performance during the cool times of sunrise and sunset, these films are unsurpassed throughout the day and especially during the hottest times when you need the help most. 3M Window Films are also designed to reduce the effects of solar heat and visible light on your furnishings and will block up to 99.9% of the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, which are the single largest cause of fading.
Optically Clear. Technically Superior.
Creating a clear window film with all these advantages wasn't easy. It required the world-leading, nano-technology laboratories of 3M. Nano-technology works with materials that are over 1,000 times smaller than the width of a hair. This expertise allows us to create a window film with hundreds of layers that is less than the thickness of a Post-it(copyright) Note.

With 3M™ Night Vision Window Films, you get the exceptional performance of a reflective film while still being able to look through the film at night. Traditional metalized films reflect equally both inside and outside, becoming mirror-like at night. The Night Vision line reflects more to the outside, where you need it, and less to the inside, where you do not need it. Our high technology, nano carbon pigment enhances the color stability in the films.
