Improve the Energy Efficiency of the Building Envelope


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 commercial and residential window films that improve a window’s energy efficiency without changing a building’s appearance, all at a fraction of the cost of window replacement.

3M Insulating Window Film


3M Insulating and Temperature Control Window Films decrease the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) and U Value of your windows. In simpler terms, 3M’s window films will increase the energy efficiency of your windows all year long. It’s almost like turning a single pane window into double pane, or a double pane window into triple pane. These films can block up to 99% of UV rays and up to 97% of infrared light, keeping occupants cool and protected. By blocking heat from entering through the windows during the summer and retaining manmade heat inside during the summer, 3M Window Films reduce dependence on the HVAC system and improve the building's or home’s energy efficiency.

3M Daylight Redirecting Film


3M Daylight Redirecting Film (DRF) redirects sunlight toward the ceiling to reduce dependency on artificial light. 80% of the sun’s visible light can be redirected toward the ceiling at a depth of 40’ into the room. Average electrical savings as a result of using less artificial light is 1.5 kWh.
