  • Five Reasons to Install 3M™ Window Film in Your Home Office

     In Skin Protection

    After the COVID-19 pandemic, more people are working from home and research suggests the trend is going to continue. In fact, a Global Workplace Analytics study reports that 25 to 30 percent of world’s workforce will be working from home multiple days a week by the end of 2021.

    If you find yourself working from home more often, consider making your home office more comfortable with 3M™ Window Film. Here are five reasons why.

    Reason No. 1: Reduce Glare from Your Windows

    3M™ Window Film is designed to prevent glare from streaming through your windows, which can make a difference in your eye comfort when looking at a computer screen.

    3M™ Sun Control Window Film, Prestige Series is made up of hundreds of layers of very thin films. These films are designed to precisely control the light and reflect unwanted wavelengths. This is now the film reduces glare.

    Reason No. 2: Reduce Energy Costs for Your Home

    Enjoy more even temperatures while reducing energy costs associated with heating or cooling your home.

    Those same layers of film that reflect glare also helps reflect 97 percent of the sun’s heat-producing infrared rays. As the sun’s angle increases, the Prestige Series film performs at a faster rate. This means a better protection and comfort when the sun is high – at the hottest part of the day.

    In fact, 3M™ Sun Control Window Film, Prestige Series blocks up to 60 percent of the heat that comes through your windows. This means less hotspots in your home and more even temperatures. It also means your HVAC system will not have to work as hard, which means energy savings.

    Reason No. 3: Reduce Fading Furniture and Floors

    3M™ Sun Control Window Films also block 99.9 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, which are the leading cause of fading furniture and floors.

    With these films on your home office windows, you will no longer need to worry about the top of your desk or the covers of your books fading. While no film can completely stop fading, 3M’s films dramatically slow the process.

    The added UV protection also helps prevent any damage from the sun to your skin.

    Reason No. 4: Improve the View from Your Windows

    Most people like the views from their home windows. 3M™ Sun Control Window Films, Prestige Series allows 40 to 70 percent of the natural light through the windows. The film also is available in a virtually clear option, so you don’t have to be concerned about changing the look of you home.

    Meanwhile, if you wanted to add more privacy, 3M™ Window Film, Night Vision Series offers a tint and is designed to improve the views at night with low interior reflectivity.

    Reason No. 5: Add Security to Your Home Windows

    Your home’s windows can be among the most vulnerable entry spots of your home. 3M™ Scotchshield™ Safety & Security Window Film adds a layer of protection.

    The film is designed to prevent shattered glass shards from flying after impact. The safety film has proven to hold together for up to two additional minutes during a forced entry, allowing more time for you to take shelter and for emergency officials to arrive.
