Window Films for UV Filtration & Passive Cooling
Inside and out, you’ve made a serious investment of both time and money in creating a beautiful home. Yet if the sun makes your home uncomfortably hot or fades your furnishings, all your efforts will be diminished. With 3M Sun Control Window Film Prestige Series, you can enjoy the benefits of a world-class window film while leaving the beauty of your home virtually unchanged.
One of the major drawbacks of traditional window films is that they tend to act like mirrors. From the inside, traditional window films make it difficult to see outside, especially at night when interior lights are on. In the daytime, the outside reflection tends to give a home the look of a commercial building. For most people, there are two primary reasons for installing window films: rejecting heat to increase comfort and fade protection from damaging UV rays for furnishings.
Block the Sun without Ruining the View
3M Sun Control Window Film Prestige Series reject up to 97% of the sun’s infrared light to help keep your home cool and lower your energy bills. 3M™ Sun Control Window Films are designed to reduce the effects of solar heat and visible light on your furnishings, blocking up to 99% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays.

3M Thinsulate – Increase Your Energy Savings
3M Thinsulate Window Films are part of the Climate Control Series, made to protect commercial and residential properties from rising energy costs. Uncovered windows allow air from outside to enter, creating drafts which change the temperature. When you repeatedly change the thermostat, you waste money. With Thinsulate, you eliminate these drafts and regain control over your indoor climate.
3M Daylight Redirecting – Natural Light Where You Need It
Daylight Redirecting Film is made to increase natural light indoors while reducing glares and direct exposure to UV rays. Used at home or work, these films change the angle of sunlight coming in through your windows. Light can now reach up to 40 feet away from the original window.
Sitting near a window for 8 hours at work can lead to headaches or even sunburn. By moving light, you keep worker productivity up. At home, you can reduce energy bills by lighting your home with natural sunlight instead of energy-consuming lamps.

The Importance of Window Tinting in Wisconsin
Many home and business owners in Wisconsin believe they do not need tinted windows because of limited sunlight in winter. However, snow can intensify sunlight by reflecting it back inside, leading to all the same damages as direct summer sun. Exposure to the sun’s UV rays can lead to sunburn, wrinkles, or even skin cancers like melanoma. Solar control tinted windows is one way to protect your skin from the sun. Since window films stay on all year, you get the same level of protection in summer and winter.
Tinted window films reduce the glare from sunlight, making it easier to stop fatigue from eye strain. This also protects your furnishings from fading. Wood, carpet, and fabric can all lose their color due to sunlight exposure.
