Window Film Can Make Commercial Buildings More Comfortable
Window film can reduce your energy bills and improve your facility’s security. It’s also a great way to enhance the comfort of your tenants, employees or customers. Here’s how window film can help.
Rays from the bright southern sun can cause annoying glare, but don’t let that stop you and your tenants from enjoying the many benefits of natural light. Studies have shows that natural light can improve student test scores, boost retail sales and enhance employee productivity.
With high quality solar window films, you can let natural light into your commercial space without causing glare … even when the sun is high in the sky.
Today, there are many solar films on the market, which offer a wide variety of benefits. Darker tinted films, like 3M Night Vision, help enhance views thanks to low interior reflectivity. They make it tougher for people to see in, and easier for you and your employees to see out at all times of day.
3M Prestige, another industry-leading film, offers all the benefits of solar window film without altering the look of your building. This virtually clear film allows in up to 70 percent of natural light, while still blocking up to 66 percent of the sun’s heat.
The southern sun can be really intense, which can cause uncomfortable hot spots in buildings. By blocking the sun’s heat, window film can eliminate those annoying warm areas and save you money on your electricity bills.
If you’re in an area that also experiences cold winters, low-e film might be the right option for you. It keeps your building warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer thanks to advance insulation technology.
While the results of installing window film can rival those of replacing your windows, it’s a considerably less expensive way to enhance tenant comfort and therefore tenant retention.
