Sun blocking window film is one of the most highly sought products on the market, and for good reason. From commercial office buildings, retail storefronts, governmental facilities, hospitals, schools, and homes, the benefits of sun blocking window film are universally-applicable across many types of buildings. In addition to blocking the sun's heat, this type of window film also prevents glare, minimizes hot spots, and blocks harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, which can be damaging to the skin as well as cause fading in furnishings and upholstery after prolonged exposure.

Benefits of Sun Blocking Window Films
Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of sun and UV blocking window film is the ability to lower heating and cooling bills. To help put this into perspective, 3M Prestige Series Window Films are proven to reduce up to 78% of the sun’s heat. This, in turn, provides dramatic dividends for office buildings and facilities with larger spaces, especially those located in areas that see a lot of sunlight throughout the year.

We can help you combine the energy efficiency of sun blocking window films by pairing these features with decorative window treatments as well as safety and security window film for ultimate protection.
