3M™ Prestige Series
One of the major drawbacks of traditional window films is that they tend to act like mirrors. From the inside, traditional window films make it difficult to see outside, especially at night when interior lights are on. In the daytime, the outside reflection can occur. Designed to maintain the appearance of your home, 3M™ Prestige Series films combine lower than glass reflectivity with film options that allow most of the light into your home. 3M™ Prestige Series films allow 40% to 70% of the natural light into your home. The only thing you’ll see day or night, inside or out, is a beautiful window.
3M™ Prestige window films are not only designed to be unnoticeable to the casual observer, but are also designed to offer superior heat rejecting capabilities – most notably, the sun’s infrared heat. Solar heat comes from two primary sources, the visible light you can see and the infrared light you can feel.
3M™ Prestige Series window films use non-metalized, multilayer optical film and nano-technology to reject up to 97% of the sun’s infrared light and reject up to 60% of the heat coming through your windows. These films also reject up to 99.9% of damaging UV rays to reduce fading of your furnishings. These industry-leading, spectral-selective films are designed to keep you cool, comfortable and protected.
Nano-technology works with materials that are over a thousand times smaller than the width of a hair. This expertise allows 3M™ to create a patented window film with hundreds of layers that is less than the thickness of a Post-it® Note. It has allowed 3M™ to create a film that delivers the highest performance possible without using metal, which can corrode and interfere with digital and satellite signals.
