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.
