  • Enhance School and University Campus with 3M Films and Finishes

     In Decorative, Energy Savings, Security

    3M offers a variety of energy and architectural solutions for schools and universities. As one of the nation’s most trusted brands, 3M manufactures scientifically proven films and finishes that can enhance security, renovate office spaces and classrooms with a new look and lower energy costs while improving the window view.

    PROTECTING STUDENTS WITH 3M FILMS

    3M’s state-of-the-art security film has been installed globally on schools and universities as an added layer of protection on glass. After impact, the film holds shattered glass fragments and shards together, further delaying an unwanted entry by up to two additional minutes. This gives emergency responders additional time to arrive and for people to take shelter.

    In 2018, there were 191 incidents – which is more incidents in one year than in the last four decades, according to the Center for Homeland Defense and Security. The Federal Commission on School Safety released a report in December 2018 that recommends, among many strategies, installing safety film to a school facility’s glass envelope.

    GIVE YOUR OFFICE SPACE, CLASSROOMS A NEW LOOK

    3M also can help uplift the décor of a classroom, conference room or meeting space at a fraction of the cost of replacing furniture. 3M’s DI-NOC™ Architectural Finishes cover any flat surface, including tables, counters, cabinets or walls. The finishes offer a wood, stone, metal or other natural texture. There are more than 1,000 designs to choose from.

    Some facilities have even changed the look of the inside of their elevators by installing DI-NOC™ over the existing wall paneling. Hotels, hospitals and office facilities globally have installed DI-NOC™ finishes. These finishes create less waste and provide a modern look while saving money.

    In addition, 3M offers several whiteboard options. In all cases, the film adheres directly to a surface, which means less bulky parts and hanging hardware.

    ADD PRIVACY TO CLASSROOMS, OFFICES

    3M™ Window Film offers a variety of privacy films, including one-way mirror films and frosted films, to hide the view of areas that you don’t want others to see. These films are great for classroom windows or office windows.

    3M™ Fasara™ Glass Finishes come in a variety of patterns and designs. These finishes can be custom cut into branded designs. Consider adding your school logo or mascot to a glass surface. The films add style while providing privacy and allowing in the natural light.

    LOWER ENERGY COSTS ON CAMPUS

    Lower energy costs associated with heating and cooling your school with 3M™ Sun Control Window Film, Prestige Series. The film rejects up to 97 percent of heat producing infrared light.

    With low interior and exterior reflectivity and tint options that are clear, the Prestige Series does not have to change the look of the windows on your campus. These films have scientifically proven to be carbon negative in as short as 6 months from installation.
