Do your windows let in too much heat from the summer sun? Does winter’s frigid cold seem to seep right through the glass? If you have to avoid certain areas of your home when the seasons change, it’s time to take back your space by getting the temperature under control – without the need for costly drapes and window treatments that block your view. 3M™ Window Films can help insulate your windows against excessive heat and cold, so you can enjoy the beauty of natural light in comfort, all year round.
What is it about constant sun exposure that makes furnishings and memorabilia fade? UV rays are the principle cause of fading. Solar heat continually heats fabrics and other surfaces, which can accelerate breakdown and discoloration over time. Visible light can accelerate fading.
3M™ Window Films let in the light you love while reflecting much of the sun’s heat away from your home. They reject up to 78% of solar heat and filter visible light. At the same time, they block up to 99% of harmful UV rays to help protect your furnishings – and your skin. And these non-metallized films provide amazing clarity, so they won’t spoil your view.
According to The Archives of Dermatology, dangerous UV radiation from the sun is associated with about 90% of all skin cancers. And studies published by the National Institute of Health show that UV rays can not only cause impaired wound healing and even DNA damage, but that UV exposure is apparently responsible for 80% of visible facial aging signs. By blocking 99% of the sun’s UV rays, 3M Window Films offer an effective, economical way to protect your family and safeguard your valuable furnishings.
