  • Window Films Provide Sun Protection for Offices

     In Energy Savings, Window Film Industry

    Do you have employees who are constantly complaining that the office is too warm despite air conditioning? Let window film help solve the office tension.

    3M Sun Control Window Film

    3M Sun Control Window Films work to regulate the temperature inside of an office building by keeping warm air out in the summer and trapping the heat inside during the winter. Metals in the film’s coating work to reflect solar heat and UV rays. By reflecting the sun’s rays instead of absorbing them, today’s window films greatly reduce the amount of heat that enters through glass. Window films work to eliminate those annoying hot and cold spots in an office, making the office more comfortable for everyone, without having to sacrifice natural light.

    With window film, offices can save up to one ton of air conditioning for every 100 square feet of window glass that is directly exposed to the sun. Not only will window film help you save money on your energy bills, but it can also extend the life of your expensive HVAC system by reducing its workload. With the money saved, films can pay for themselves in under five years, and you will feel good about reducing your office’s carbon footprint.

    Plus, window films do more than just cut down on energy consumption. 3M Sun Control Films can block up to 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. In other words, installing solar control films is the same as protecting your office with SPF 1000. The films help to protect your office’s furnishings from premature fading, while at the same time protecting your employees’ skin from sun damage. The films also help to reduce the incoming solar glare that can be annoying to employees and disruptive to their work.
