Which 3M Fasara Glass Finish is Right For Your Project?
Many assume that the exterior of a residential or commercial space is what creates a lasting impression. After all, it is the first thing people lay their eyes on upon their initial visit. While first impressions do set the stage, the importance of a space’s interior cannot be overstated.
As an interior designer, architect, property manager, or business owner, you understand that the inside of a space is equally, if not more, impactful than the exterior! With this in mind, it can be difficult to strike the perfect balance of natural lighting, privacy, and aesthetics to create a remarkable, comfortable, and inviting space. However, 3M Fasara Glass Finishes make this an easy task.
3M Fasara Glass Finishes: Refresh and Renew Your Space
3M Fasara Glass Finishes can be used to both refresh the interior design of a space and create just the right level of privacy. With a variety of opacity levels, patterns, and colors, it’s easy to achieve a modern, sleek interior without having to invest in renovations and remodeling. When privacy is required in a space, whether a home or office, the go-to solution is oftentimes curtains or blinds. However, with 3M Fasara Glass Finishes, you can create the desired level of privacy without compromising natural lighting. Not to mention, these glass finishes reject up to 99% of ultraviolet rays, helping to protect furnishings and flooring from fading.
With dozens of options to choose from paired with endless application possibilities, it can be difficult to know where to begin. However, there are a few 3M Fasara Glass Finishes that stand out. These versatile finishes are popular in many different applications and may help inspire your next interior design vision.
3M Fasara Glass Finishes: Customized Privacy & Enhanced Aesthetics
3M Fasara Matte Crystal
3M Fasara Matte Crystal provides the perfect balance of privacy and design. With a visible light transmittance of 86%, it creates privacy without eliminating natural light. This film mimics the look of etched or sandblasted glass, adding a unique element of design to your space at a fraction of the cost of traditional etched glass. Its ability to welcome natural light into a space while obscuring passersby’s views makes 3M Fasara Matte Crystal a popular choice for office spaces. In the office, natural lighting is highly-valued and has been linked to employee well-being and productivity. On the other hand, there are times when privacy in the workplace is required. 3M Fasara Matte Crystal allows for the best of both worlds!
3M Fasara Milky White
3M Fasara Milky White allows for slightly more privacy than 3M Fasara Matte Crystal, with a visible light transmittance of 59%. When privacy is the primary goal, 3M Fasara Milky White can get the job done without entirely blocking out sunlight. This glass finish is commonly used in retail environments, lobbies, or partitions, where privacy is slightly more important than natural lighting.
3M Fasara Milky Milky
