How To Redirect Sunlight Using Window Film

Reducing the amount of sun radiation entering a building allows you to keep the temperature of your office or home under control. This saves energy through reduced air conditioning costs, increases comfort by keeping glare under control, and protects interior furnishings from sun damage.

3M™ Daylight Redirecting Film sends direct sunlight up towards the ceiling, bouncing natural light deeper into a building. As well as dispersing extra light in a more uniform way throughout a room it also reduces glare, increasing comfort for people within the space. In addition, the energy used to light rooms is reduced making it an energy efficient choice.

How To Use Window Film To Increase Security

Accidents happen, as do deliberate acts of violence. We can’t stop them, but we can increase our protection against them. One of the most common causes of injury and death in the event of an explosion is flying fragments of glass. Safety films, in combination with an impact protection system, are designed to hold glass together, keeping it in its frame and helping to protect you against flying glass fragments.

Fortunately, you can help protect your building and your business against break-ins, vandalism and even bomb blasts with 3M™ Safety & Security Window Films and 3M™ Impact Protection Attachment Systems, which help to hold window glass together in the event of breakage.

How safe are your windows?

In 1992, Health, Safety and Welfare Regulation 14 came into force, requiring that “every window or other transparent or translucent surface in a wall, partition, door or gate should, where necessary for reasons of health or safety, be of a safety material or be protected against breakage; and be appropriately marked or incorporate features to make it apparent.”

This regulation applies to a wide range of workplaces including offices, shops, schools, hospitals, hotels and places of entertainment.

Business owners and landlords who do not comply could face significant legal consequences if their employees, customers or even passers-by are injured by broken, falling or flying glass from their properties.

Our safety window films are certified to BS EN12600 in accordance with current UK Health & Safety legislation and can upgrade existing glazing to the appropriate standards.

Reduce your risk by reinforcing your windows

Whether you’re in a big city or a small town, thieves can victimize your business and go after easy smash-and-grab targets — making your glass doors and ground floor windows vulnerable.

3M™ Safety & Security Window Films and 3M™ Impact Protection Attachment Systems make it more difficult to get through your windows, helping to reduce your losses during smash-and-grab crimes.

  • Help protect people and property
  • Keep the welcoming appearance of your property without adding bars or other physical barriers
  • Thicker adhesive helps hold broken glass together, hindering break-and-enter crimes
  • Tear-resistance offers excellent performance over standard films
  • Help protect against broken glass shards and unlawful entry

Mitigate glass-related injuries and damage

Bomb threats seem like a daily occurrence, often involving schools, government buildings and commercial facilities. And accidental explosions are real-life everyday risks for many industrial, lab and manufacturing plants. You can reduce the risk of glass-related injuries and damage during blasts by reinforcing your windows with 3M™ Safety & Security Films that help hold glass together during blast events.

  • Reduce risks from impact energy
  • Get additional protection from blasts thanks to tear resistance
  • Help prevent glass shards from becoming lethal projectiles
  • Lessen your operation down time

The Window Film For All Seasons

It’s all too easy to assume that window film is only suited to either the summer or winter, depending on your chosen film

However, whilst there can be no doubting the beneficial effects of certain window films during the hot summer months, the insulating qualities of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film, the film that ‘does it all’ are also without question.

3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film is an advanced Low-E. or “Low Emissivity” window film which is available at just a fraction of the cost of replacing your windows.

Offering the ideal solution for anyone looking to keep the warmth inside 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, improving overall comfort throughout your space.

Virtually Invisible Insulation!

 

Virtually invisible insulation. Enhance comfort and efficiency year round. This unique Low-Ewindow film helps retain warmth in the winter and cool air in the summer by increasing your windows’ insulation value. A single-pane performs close to a double-pane, a double-pane performs close to a triple-pane.

  • Helps keep you warm during cold winter months.
  • Good heat rejection provides additional comfort and energy savings in the summer months.

  • Significantly blocks the number of harmful UV rays that cause fading, helping to extend the life of furnishings.
  • Includes a comprehensive warranty from 3M.
