  • Hotels Can Protect Their Guests With 3M Window Film

     In Decorative, Energy Savings, Security, Window Film Industry

    No matter where your hotel is located, it can benefit from the installation of window film. From increased guest comfort and security to saving money on energy bills, window film is a smart and affordable investment all hotels owners and facility managers should consider.

    3M Sun Control Window Film

    Guest comfort is key when it comes to a hotel’s success, and window film can help. Award-winning 3M Sun Control Window Film can help to regulate a room’s interior temperature by keeping hot air out during the summer and cold air out during the winter. The film’s multi-layered technology helps to eliminate the hot and cold spots inside a hotel, providing a more comfortable experience for guests. In addition to regulating interior temperature, window films also block UV rays coming from the sun, reducing the incoming sun’s glare that can disrupt guests.

    In fact, 3M Sun Control Window Films can block up to 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Installing window film is like adding a layer of SPF 1000 to your windows. Furthermore, solar heat and UV rays account for 65% of the fading that effects interior furnishings, flooring and drapery. Window films not only help protect your hotel interiors from sun damage and fading but also help protect your guests’ skin from the damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays, which can cause skin cancer.

    Interested in reducing your hotel’s carbon footprint? For every 100 square feet of exposed window glass, hotels can save up to one ton of air conditioning. Not only does this reduce your energy bills but it also reduces the workload of your HVAC system, extending its life and saving you even more money in the long run. Window films are an affordable investment that end up paying for themselves in under three years, with the money saved in energy bills alone. Additionally, when looking to make hotel upgrades, window film can easily be installed over existing windows making it the more economical solution compared to completely replacing the windows.

    3M Safety & Security Window Film

    Safety and security window films can provide hotels with an additional layer of protection. Helping to fortify glass doors, the films work to increase the shatter-resistance of glass. The multi-layer technology of the film helps keep glass in place when impacted. These films provide added security for glass entry ways. They can delay an armed intruder for up to two minutes, providing time to contract help and get to safety. In cases of violent weather, safety and security film keeps shattered glass together, protecting your guests, employees and property from additional damage associated with violent weather and reducing the chance of injury caused by broken glass. When faced with incidents of graffiti and vandalism, safety and security window film can help decrease the costs associated with cleanup, allowing hotel owners or managers to simply replace the film instead of the entire window.

    Hotels also can improve their overall guest experience through the use of decorative window films. 3M FASARA Glass Finishes provide increased privacy by obscuring guests’ views into storage rooms and back offices. Decorative films are also a stylish and affordable design solution for adding privacy to guestroom baths or spa areas.
