Reduce Fading

3M™ Window Films tackle the three major causes of fading: solar heat, UV rays, and visible light.

Our films reduce the effects of solar heat and visible light on furnishings and block up to 99% of the sun's UV rays - the single largest cause of fading. Depending on the film you select, you can enjoy up to 79% reduction in solar heat.

While no film can stop fading completely, our films dramatically slow the progress of fading to keep your possessions looking beautiful longer.

Reduce Glare

3M™ Window Films reduce discomfort & strain on eyes from sunlight.

Window films can reduce glares in residential homes and commercial businesses. With window film you can enjoy every room in your home no matter what position the sun is in. Enjoy natural light while watching TV, on your computer or reading without the disruptive glare normally caused by the sun.

Glare reduction in business keeps employees more comfortable and productive and for retail stores and restaurants it end the problem of customers being blinded by sunlight coming in your business windows.

Reduce Heat

3M™ Window Films eliminates excessive heat in homes & businesses.

Professionally installed window film can reduce excessive heat in residential homes & commercial businesses while still allowing natural sunlight to shine in. Curtains & blinds can block some heat but then also block the natural light. Window films provide superior temperature control by rejecting the sun's heat while still letting in natural sunlight. This increases the comfort of your home or business, maintaining views of the outside and enhancing your overall environment.

Windows will be harder to break if hit by balls or rocks, glass fragments will be held together to reduce potential injuries from broken or flying glass.

Increase Property Value

Residential window films are an enhancement that can signifcantly increase the value of your home. Windows are a key feature in your home, but you may be covering them up with blinds and curtains to cut down on glare and hot spots. One of the major window tint benefits is that it allows homeowners to enjoy the windows they fell in love with by improving comfort, providing energy savings, and protecting floors and furniture from fading. Additionally, window film reduces glare, enhances privacy, and offers UV protection, ensuring your interiors remain vibrant and undamaged.
