Retail Stores Improve Experience with 3M


3M offers products that can enhance a shopping experience within a retail store, including solar control window film designed to reduce fading and lower energy costs; decorative finishes that can transform the décor of a space and add branding; and safety and security film to delay intruders and protect people and property.

Lower High Energy Costs and Reduce Fading with 3M Window Film

3M™ Sun Control Window Film, Prestige Series is designed to protect merchandise from fading and help lower high energy costs by reducing the harmful elements of the sun.

The film is scientifically proven to stop 99.9 percent of UV rays from filtering through glass windows. UV rays are the leading cause of fading furniture and floors.

Meanwhile, the Prestige Series window tints reduce more than 97 percent of heat-producing infrared light. This means a store’s HVAC system will not have to work as hard to keep customers and employees cool.

3M™ Thinsulate Window Film also is designed to help prevent temperature pockets near windows. The film has proven to make a single-pane window act like a double-pane window, and a double-pain window act like a triple-pane window. This also can lower heating and cooling costs and ensure even temperatures throughout a store.

Reduce Impacts of Smash-And-Grab Retail Crime with Safety Film

While the nation struggles with the pandemic, many are concerned about an increase in smash-and-grab burglaries and other retail crime as people are financially hurt from job loss and other economic impacts.

Protect your merchandise by installing 3M™ Safety & Security Film on your glass doors, windows and display cases. The film holds shattered glass together immediately after impact and prevents glass shards from flying. 3M security film has scientifically proven to delay unwanted entry by up to two full minutes, allowing time for emergency responders to arrive and for people to take shelter.

Retail companies across the globe have installed 3M’s safety film to protect people and property. The film can include sun control properties.
