Tired of losing the Privacy Battle?

Tired of nosey neighbours peering through your window every time they walk past? We don’t blame you!

Whilst closing curtains or installing blinds or shutters can offer an effective antidote against prying eyes, these are not perfect and offer the significant drawback of not only making the room seem a little smaller, they also block out all of the light when they are closed.

The Top 3 Benefits of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film For Business Owners

3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film is a cost-effective option for you to upgrade your windows to be more energy efficient with year round comfort.

For decades, insulation has been used in the walls and ceilings of buildings to control the flow of heat between inside and out. 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film works much in the same way. It improves the insulation value of a typical single pane window close to that of a double pane window, helping to keep the warmth in during the winter and the air-conditioned air in during the summer.

Benefit No. 1 – Control Climate

3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film helps keep the warmth in during the winter and the cool conditioned air in during the summer — keeping the weather out where it belongs – all season, every season. It helps reduce cold/hot spots in your buildings, improving overall comfort for you and your tenants.

Benefit No. 2 – Increase Efficiency

It is estimated that 34% of heating and cooling in commercial buildings is due to your windows. Manage your energy costs at a fraction of the cost of replacing your windows. 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film is a low emissivity or “Low E” window film which improves the insulation value of a typical single pane window close to that of a double pane window and the insulation value of a typical double pane window close to a triple pane window.

Benefit No. 3 – Maintain Appearance

This innovative new film has been installed on historic registered buildings to enhance sustainability, comfort, and provide fade protection, while maintaining the existing windows and appearance. 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window film is a virtually invisible film that is professionally installed to the surface of your glass. It has a neutral appearance that will not dramatically change the look of your windows — inside or out.

Whatever your needs are, we have the window film solution for you here at WF Glazing Protection Ltd. Contact us today on telephone at 0345 337 4751 or the quick contact form to the right of your screen for a call back to talk to a member of our team about the best options for you.

Interview with Dave Faulconbridge from WF Glazing Protection Ltd

Dave Faulconbridge, one of the founders of WF Glazing Protection Ltd, recently took part in a podcast with the excellent team at Green Element to discuss our range of window film.

It is our aim to help offer our customers the freedom to use your offices and rooms all year round through their window film coatings. Having been in operation for 12 years as well as previous employees of 3M, they sure do have the required experience and are proud to be environmental friendly while at it. Positive environmental impact and carbon footprint is something they take seriously and it earned them the Green Award 4 years ago.

He shares with us how the business can help you reduce your electricity bill and why they only provide clients with high quality products.

Resources mentioned

3 Key Things

  1. Don’t be scared to go the sustainable business route because it lets you step back from the business and look at what you do, and you can actually make the business more economical at the same time.
  2. Enjoy talking to your clients and communicating with them on how they can help reduce their own environmental impact.
  3. Let your mission become your way of being.

About WF Glazing Protection

WF Glazing Protection gives people the freedom to use their offices, rooms, buildings comfortably and safely all year round through our retrofit window film coatings to upgrade their existing glazing. At the moment with the way we’re working, we’re trying to be greener and more sustainable and it seems to be working very, very well for the business.

The product is a simple polyester film that is clear that we bond to existing windows – either on the inside or the outside – that can do several different things. Majority is where it helps clients to reduce environmental impact by reflecting heat from the sun or by helping to insulate existing windows.

What is your business superpower?

It would be liberating rooms. The windows and curtains that we install liberate rooms from overpowering heat in the summertime and from the clutches of Jack Frost in the winter.

How does WF Glazing Protection Ltd engage its suppliers and customers with your mission and purpose?

We engage by conversation, communication, and connection. It’s so important to us that we talk to our clients. We don’t just walk in there and tell them what we think they need. We like to take the time to visit our clients, understand about their building, understand about the issues they’re trying to solve and why it’s important to them. I feel that’s the only way we can provide the right solutions to their needs and get the correct films for them.

What has been your biggest struggle when it comes to running an ethical and sustainable business and how have you overcome it?

The biggest struggle is to not offer the cheapest products. At the end of the day, we’re running a business and it’s a concentrated marketplace; you need to win orders. The biggest struggle is not to offer the cheapest products especially during the recession. Knowing the industry like we do, we know the biggest suppliers, we know how to source cheap if we wanted to, and we also know that cheap window film doesn’t form well, doesn’t last as long and so you’re giving your clients a false economy.

In our conversations with clients, we like to show them the value of getting the specification correct, the value of a long-term approach rather than a short-term fix. But also it’s not just the product it’s the service.

If you could offer ONE piece of advice to our listeners, what would that be?

4 years ago, we started to look at where we wanted to take the business and I think if you try starting with reason; what is the reason I want to help myself, what is the reason I want to help the environment? When you’ve got that reason you can stitch them together into a sentence which creates your purpose and mission and that gives you the direction of where you want to take the business.

What is the biggest challenge and frustration when trying to reduce your carbon footprint?

Because WF Glazing Protection is a site-based business, we have to travel to people’s buildings and the biggest challenge in our environmental impact in carbon footprint is keeping our vehicles with few emission. We’re moving more and more into future of instant gratification where people want things immediately.

We find organizations place orders later and later so it can be a real challenge managing these expectations with what we want to do, which is smart work at the location to limit journey times, limit distance, limit emissions for the surveyors and the installers. We don’t want to be travelling halfway across the country at a day’s notice to install three windows it doesn’t make sense and it’s un-environmental.

Richard, Lincolnshire – 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control window film – Historic Building

What problems were you looking to solve?

  • I contacted WF Glazing Protection to help solve my problem of heat loss during the winter and solar heat gain during the summer. The 2 big challenges I was having with our home.

How well did WF Glazing Protection solve these problems for you?

  • WF Glazing Protection fitted the 3M Thinsulate climate control window film in December 2017, August 2018 and November 2018. I have seen a massive improvement in reducing the sun. It’s made a significant difference in making rooms more comfortable to use.

What held you back from having window film fitted sooner?

  • I had previously held back from getting widow film fitted sooner because the films available were visible from inside and out changing the look of the glass. It was important to maintain visibility and a natural appearance on our home.  3M Thinsulate CC75 is a virtually clear solution.

What did you like most about the service offered from WF Glazing Protection? 

  • The whole team at WF Glazing Protection are amazing. When Dave visited to do the assessment, he was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.  This was matched by John who did a brilliant job with the installations taking great care on our old windows.

What was your main concern that would have prevented you from buying this, and what put your fears to rest?

  • Before I went ahead with purchasing 3M Thinsulate climate control window film I was not confident in the product and was concerned with the way it would look. Dave did an excellent job of explaining the benefits that window film can offer, which put all my fears to rest.

If you were to recommend 3M Thinsulate Climate Control window film to your best friend, what would you say?

  • I have already recommended 3M Thinsulate climate control window film to a friend and explained to them how great the results in improving comfort are.

What made you choose 3M Thinsulate Climate Control window film over anything else you could have done?

  • Our home is an historic building and I chose 3M Thinsultate climate control window film because it has no impact on the looks of the historic building from inside or outside.

What are the main benefits you’ve experienced as a result of having window film fitted? 

  • I have experienced 2 major benefits from using 3M Thinsulate climate control window film. Less heat gain in rooms and reduced glare. It’s too early to comment on heat retention during the colder winter months, but I’m confident that it will make a noticeable difference.

What surprised you the most or made you the happiest about having window film fitted? 

  • I was really surprised by how well 3M Thinsulate climate control window film improved my working environment. The reduction in heat and sun glare makes a big difference to my productivity in the home office.

5 Benefits of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film For Homeowners

Whether the business energy bills or keeping home fuel bills to a minimum are your responsibility, summer giving way to the autumn and winter can offer its fair share of concerns as the weather inevitably begins to cool

With ever increasing costs from energy companies in the UK resulting in rising winter fuel bills, it is all too easy to find that your finances are being put under significant strain.

Maximising the effectiveness of your heating system is essential if you would like to keep energy costs down during the cold winter months. Thankfully however, an effective option is now available.

Key Benefits

  1. Helps keep you warm during cold winter months.
  2. Good heat rejection provides additional comfort and energy savings in the summer months.
  3. Film offers high visible light transmission with a neutral appearance to help maintain a building’s existing appearance.
  4. Significantly blocks the amount of harmful UV rays that cause fading, helping to extend the life of furnishings.
  5. Includes a comprehensive warranty from 3M.

3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film Climate Control Series

3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film Climate Control Series provides the traditional benefits of 3M™ Sun Control Window Film by rejecting heat and blocking harmful UV rays. But it also takes performance a step further to protect against heat loss during cold weather.

The film has a patented construction that helps reflect more interior heat back into the room, improving personal comfort by reducing cold drafts near windows, which can help save on energy costs. The high visible light transmission provides a neutral appearance that doesn’t change the look of your home or building.

3M™ Thinsulate™

How Does 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film Work?

For decades, insulation has been used in the walls and ceilings of our homes to control the flow of heat between inside and out. 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film works much in the same way. It improves the insulation value of a typical single pane window to that of a double pane window and a double pane window to a triple pane window. This helps keep the warmth in during the winter and the heat out in the summer.

This works by providing increased insulation performance, much like upgrading single pane to double pane and double pane to triple pane windows. Application of this film is much, much less expensive than actually replacing all that glass, and the results rival or match the performance, and appearance, of new glass.

Please Note – Historic registered buildings, newer office towers, and every sort of building in between can be improved by the addition of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film. It enhances sustainability, comfort, and helps to provide fade protection, while remaining virtually invisible, with a neutral appearance that will not dramatically change the look of your windows – inside or out.
