Why Invest in Window Film for Sun Control?
Sun control window film works by selectively filtering the sun’s electromagnetic spectrum, letting visible light through while blocking damaging ultraviolet (UV) radiation and infrared heat energy. Heat rejection saves money by reducing building energy demand all while improving occupant comfort. For apartment buildings and commercial structures, this can lead to higher tenant retention.
3M Sun Control Window Film rejects up to 97% of infrared light while allowing a high transmission of natural light into your environment. With common applications including retail stores, corporate offices, homes, and residential living spaces, sun control film provides both exceptional energy savings and enhanced comfort.
