The Embarcadero Center in San Francisco is one of the premiere addresses in America. With five towers covering five blocks, it offers four million square feet in retail and office space. It also commands a spectacular view of the bay area. With such prolonged exposure to the sun, there were significant heat and glare issues. By using 3M Window Films, they were able to improve tenant comfort and reduce their energy costs by an impressive $350,000 per year.
By letting natural light complement or replace artificial light in your building you can enjoy tremendous advantages. The most obvious being lower energy costs for lighting. Daylighted spaces can also demand higher lease prices and experience less turnover because occupants of daylighted spaces can be more productive and satisfied with their work. With these films, you can enjoy all the advantages of bringing light into your building with none of the disadvantages. So you save money two ways: lower lighting costs plus lower cooling costs thanks to our superior heat rejection.
For most companies, there are two primary reasons for installing window films: rejecting heat to increase comfort and lowering energy costs, as well as fade protection for furnishings from damaging UV rays. Our newest films do both remarkably well.
All window films are tested perpendicular to the window. 3M Prestige Series Films are also tested and perform best when the sun is high at the hottest parts of the day.
To measure just how impressive these films are, we created a more stringent test for their performance: Total Solar Energy Rejected – On Angle. This test proves that our films are unsurpassed throughout the day and especially during the hottest times when you need the help most. So, when the sun is working hardest, our films are performing their best.
While some films claim similar performance, the fact is that their performance is only similar when tested perpendicular to the sun, which only can happen at the relatively cool times of sunrise and sunset. Our spectrally- selective films reject up to 97% of the sun's infrared light to help keep your home cool and lower your energy bills.
3M Window Films are designed to reduce the effects of solar heat and visible light on your furnishings and will block up to 99.9% of the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, which are the single largest cause of fading. While no film can stop fading completely, our films dramatically slow the process of fading to keep your building and merchandise looking beautiful.
Until recently, most window films that rejected heat were tinted dark, used metal or were highly reflective. Over the years, various other companies have tried to create a clear window film with mixed results. While they were able to achieve improved performance their drawbacks made them unacceptable for most fine homes. Because these films used metal, they were susceptible to corrosion, especially in coastal environments, and interfered with mobile phone reception. Because the Prestige Series has no metals, they are the first films to offer a variety of selections that eliminate these problems and perform to the industry's highest standards.
Creating a clear window film with all these advantages wasn't easy. It required the world-leading, nano-technology laboratories of 3M. Nano-technology works with materials that are over a thousand times smaller than the width of a hair. This expertise allows us to create a patented window film with hundreds of layers that is less than the thickness of a Post-it® Note. It has allowed us to create a film that delivers the highest performance possible without metal, which can corrode and interfere with mobile phone signals.
The Morpho butterfly can be the most beautiful color of blue.
The Morpho, however, has no pigment whatsoever in its wings. The blue color is the result of a tiny multi-layer wing structure that receives all light, but reflects back only the blue spectrum.
Prestige film is made the same way, with over 220 multiple layers in less than 2mm thickness. Prestige film has layers of alternating polymers that are spaced to receive light, but reflect back the infrared spectrum, the portion of light that most produces heat.
PR 70- Because this film is barely perceptable when installed, this is a favorite film when the desire is to not change the appearance of the home. Prestige 70 is also very popular in retail installations because it allows an always clear view into the store day or night.
PR 60- Still a nearly clear film, our light shade make this our most popular residential Prestige film. With a slight reduction in visible light, it helps with glare and provides slightly better heat and fade protection. Prestige 60 is so clear that it is still a challenge to notice when installed.
PR 50- This moderately shaded Prestige film is the obvious choice when greater heat reduction is require without signifacantly darkening the interior. It offers good glare control for rooms with TV or computer screens.
PR 40- Our darkest shade of Prestige is still only moderately shaded, yet offers maximum protection for heat, glare and fading. A clear choice on untreated transoms and in rooms where glare requires greater control.
No one has more experience with window film than 3M. In 1966, 3M received the first patent for window film. Today there are millions of square feet of 3M Window Films installed around the world. With the new Prestige Series, 3M has once again demonstrated why they are the industry leader.
With the new 3M™ Ceramic Series films, we bring you the three virtues that are most important: low reflectivity, high clarity and outstanding heat reduction. So you’ll save energy while keeping your interior cool and looking beautiful.
Using nanotechnology we’ve created ceramics so fine they are not only invisible to the naked eye they are imperceptible with an ordinary microscope. These ceramics allow us to create a film that is tough, won’t corrode and is so clear your view will remain beautiful.
The new 3M Ceramic Series delivers stellar performance against solar heat and sunlight. Our spectrally selective films reject up to 80% of the sun’s infrared light to reduce energy costs; while also blocking more than 99% of the sun’s harmful ultra-violet (UV) rays to reduce fading of fabrics.
3M Window Films – Ceramic Series will look good not just the first year, but for years to come. Sputtered metal films can corrode, often changing color on the edges. Films that rely on dyes are prone to fading over time, changing to a purplish hue. By using advanced ceramics, our film retains its color and appearance over time.
With energy costs seeming to increase every year, 3M Ceramic Series films are a great way to save money and help the environment. By rejecting up to 59% of the total solar energy and up to 80% of the heat-producing infrared rays, your cooling system will work less and you’ll be able to maintain a more even temperature throughout your home or office. Depending on the size of your home or office you could save hundreds or thousands of dollars each year.
Creating a beautiful home or office takes an investment of time and money. Damaging ultra-violet (UV) rays from the sun can ruin that investment, fading your fabrics, photos, artwork, wood, carpet and wallpaper. But, because our advanced film blocks over 99% of UV rays, you can fully enjoy your beautiful interiors for years to come.
In addition to its low reflectivity that doesn’t detract from the beauty of your architecture, one of the Ceramic Series’ most impressive characteristics is its amazing clarity. Day or night, our film has a clarity that rivals glass.
CM 50- Offers energy rejection and clear vision through the glass.
CM 40- Offers excellent performance and a pleasant appearance on your glass.
Dark, but not too dark
CM 30- Offers greater heat reduction and better glare reduction.
The new 3M line of Scotchtint™ Night Vision window film offers protection from the sun's damaging UV rays and controls heat and glare, while inviting warm, natural light into the room and increasing comfort.

3M Window Films address the three major causes of fading.
3M Window Films are designed to reduce the effects of solar heat and visible light on your furnishings and will block up to 99% of the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, which are the single largest cause of fading. Depending on the film you chose, you can enjoy a 79% reduction in the sun's heat. While no film can stop fading completely, our films dramatically slow the progress of fading to keep your furnishings looking beautiful.
On a warm day, the sun shining through your windows can drastically increase the warmth of a room. Not only do you become more uncomfortable, all that heat is costing you money when your air conditioner tries to keep up. By rejecting up to 79% of the sun's heat, our film can significantly reduce your energy bill. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends many 3M Window Film products as effective UV protectants.
Few things are as frustrating as working on a computer screen or trying to watch television in a sunlit room. By significantly reducing glare, our films help you do your work or relax without the added eyestrain from excessive light.
NV 45- The lightest version offers energy rejection without a dark or shiny look. This is film a popular choice when vision through the glass is important.
NV 35- The light version is by far our most popular film offering excellent performance and a pleasant appearance on your glass.
NV 25- If enhancing daytime privacy is a concern, we suggest looking into the medium shade. With a subtle external reflection, nearby neighbors will not be seeing into your home during the day. Medium gives greater heat reduction for rooms that get too hot.
NV 15- Our dark shade is an excellent choice for the large untreated windows so common in today's great rooms. It also provides the perfect solution to glare problems in TV entertainment rooms and home offices with computer screens.
