Most commercial businesses share a common goal: to provide occupants with a comfortable, safe space. Restaurants, offices, apartment buildings, and other commercial spaces regularly encounter issues like fluctuating temperatures, high energy bills, lack of security, and privacy. With this in mind, people often don’t realize that window film is an optimal solution for many of these common problems. However, with so many window films available, it can be hard to know which is right for you! Learn how window tinting for commercial buildings can lead to a safer, more comfortable space.
Why Choose Window Film?
There are a variety of window film products available with different categories addressing different issues. For instance, sun control window film can lower energy bills and create comfortable interiors. On the other hand, safety and security window film can fortify glass for increased protection. From sun control and insulation to safety and security and decorative, window film has a wide range of functionality depending on the film you select.
Windows & The Sun: A Hot Topic
Expansive windows, while highly desirable in modern architecture, welcome the sun’s heat and bothersome glare. When the sun blasts through windows, it can heat up interiors, leading to discomfort among occupants. HVAC systems must work overtime to maintain the desired temperature. As a result, energy bills can increase! Not to mention, ultraviolet rays can enter through windows, causing furnishings to fade. While curtains and blinds can certainly cut glare and minimize the impact of the sun’s light, you’re eliminating natural light as a whole to get the job done. Luckily, 3M Sun Control Window Film can address the issues created by the sun without sacrificing sunlight.
For Lower Energy Bills & Increased Comfort:
3M Sun Control Window Film rejects heat and reduces glare without blocking sunlight. As a result, your space can maintain more comfortable interior temperatures, and in turn, lower energy bills. In fact, sun control window film can reduce cooling costs by up to 30%! Not to mention, 3M Sun Control Window Films reject up to 99% of UV rays, minimizing the fading of furnishings and protecting occupants’ skin. So don’t choose between aesthetics and comfort. With 3M Sun Control Window Film, you get the best of both worlds.
3M Thinsulate Window Film is another solution to lower energy bills and increase comfort. In fact, this film can reduce energy bills year-round. A poorly insulated window allows manmade heat to escape in the winter and the sun’s heat to raise temperatures in the summer. This window film improves the insulation of a single-pane window to that of a double, and a double-pane window to that of a triple. In turn, manmade heat is retained in the winter, and the sun’s heat is rejected in the warm summer months! As a result, you’ll not only enjoy lower energy bills no matter the season but also increased comfort.
Windows Are the Weakest Link
Windows open up your space to vulnerabilities. Bomb blasts, break-ins, inclement weather, and other catastrophic events happen with no warning. As a result, unprotected windows mean that your commercial space could fall victim to a disastrous event. This not only damages your property but could potentially put occupants in danger. That’s where 3M Safety and Security comes in!
For Elevated Protection:
3M Safety and Security Window Film provides a layer of protection to glass windows and doors, which are the most vulnerable part of many buildings. This film is specially designed to stretch rather than tear. In a scenario where an unprotected window would shatter and be penetrated, 3M Safety and Security Film holds the glass in place. This mitigates the harm caused by flying shards of glass and buys extra time for occupants to react in the event of an emergency. Don’t get caught off guard. With safety and security window film, rest assured knowing that your space is protected 24/7. Explore our different 3M Safety and Security Film Products to find the best option for your space.
Windows Limit Privacy
Many offices have clear glass conference rooms and wide, open workspaces. As a result, privacy can be difficult to come by. While you could install curtains and blinds, it can take away from the overall style of the workplace. When privacy is necessary, 3M Decorative and Privacy Window Film can get the job done!
For Subtle Privacy & Enhanced Aesthetics:
3M Decorative and Privacy Window Film comes in a variety of patterns, colors, and textures. This film can create subtle privacy throughout your space, without completely blocking natural light! Not to mention, these decorative films can elevate aesthetics. So whether you want to foster discreet privacy on glass conference room walls or add some flare to an office door, the options are endless.
From improved energy efficiency and increased protection to the creation of subtle privacy, window tinting for commercial buildings can be beneficial in many ways! No matter what you’re looking for, one of our window film professionals can help you identify the perfect film for your commercial property. As a result, occupants will enjoy increased comfort and safety in your space. Unlock endless possibilities with window film.
