3M Solutions for Energy, Security, and Design Refresh

EPD offers the A&D community various 3M solutions that help to address multiple building issues, all in a creative manner.

Energy Solutions

Improve the Energy Efficiency of the Building Envelope

As an architect, making building retrofits more energy efficient may be part of your responsibility. Too often the inefficiencies of a building’s envelope are overlooked. Windows tend to be a building’s Achilles heel, creating inefficiencies that are tolerated because of an occupant’s desire for natural light. 3M manufactures window films that reduce a window’s energy inefficiency without changing a building’s appearance. Turn single pane glass into double pane, or double pane into triple pane, all at a fraction of the cost of window replacement.

Security Solutions

Improve the Security of the Building Envelope

Glass is typically the weakest part of a building’s envelope. After all, it is more fragile than the concrete, wood, siding, stucco, and other building materials that surround it. Broken glass presents a safety hazard, whether it is because glass shards are dangerous to the touch or because there is no longer a barrier between the inside and outside. 3M Safety & Security Window Film addresses the vulnerability of glass by helping to hold it together within the window’s frame.
