3M Prestige Series window films 


(Based on a 5-star scale)

Prestige Series window films from St. Paul, MN-based 3M are the first clear, metal-free window films that measurably reduce the heat and UV rays that enter commercial buildings while still allowing natural light through. Leveraging world-class capability in nanotechnology, adhesives, multi-layer optical films, and precision manufacturing, 3M has created window film that is comprised of hundreds of layers while being thinner than a Post-it® Note. The spectrally selective Prestige films reject 97 percent of the sun's infrared light, keeping your space cool and lowering your energy bills. The films also protect furnishings and carpet from fading by blocking 99.9 percent of UV rays. Prestige films can be specified to let in more or less visible light, and there is now a Safety & Security version available that protects against burglaries and flying glass from natural disasters. Find more information about 3M window films.
