Sunscreen Window Tinting introduces the latest range of exterior window
films from 3M that offer high visibility, heat rejection and 99.9% UV protection.
3M’s latest addition to its innovative sun control window film products,
the 3M Prestige exterior window films are a new series of high performance sun
control films comprising several hundred ultra-thin layers based on a unique
nano technology to set new standards in visible light transmission and heat
3M Prestige exterior window films offer up to 90 per cent Visible Light
Transmission (VLT), the highest on the market, to preserve interior and
exterior views. A major advantage of the new product is that the installation
will not make any visible change to the exterior appearance of the building.
The film is externally applied to suit buildings with double or triple glazing,
greatly reducing the risk of breakage from thermal stress.
Key features of 3M Prestige exterior window films also include the ability
to block up to 77 per cent of solar energy, and first non-metallised
exterior-applied film, eliminating corrosion or interference with wireless or
cellular signals inside the building.
Ryan from Sunscreen Window Tinting & Graphics explains that the
clear or lightly tinted exterior window films from the 3M Prestige line represent
a major technological advancement in enhancing the performance and appearance of
buildings with their ability to offer all the benefits of heavily tinted or
reflective film without the inherent drawbacks of darkened rooms or shiny
Being almost as clear as glass, the window film does not alter the
external appearance of the building while inside, reflection from internal
lighting on the treated glass is significantly reduced.
Tested in real conditions at several schools, public buildings, hotels
and commercial offices in Sydney last summer, 3M Prestige exterior window films
achieved significant reduction in the warming effect of the sun’s rays on the
indoor environment, without impacting entry of natural light or changing the
external appearance of the buildings.
