In Sydney's north shore the owner of an apartment approached Sunscreen Window Tinting with a problem.

Throughout the daytime heat was building, especially during the summer months where afternoon temperatures become unbearable. As the sun streamed in on the new floorboards, fading became an issue. Combating the heat and damaging ultra violet sun rays, blinds would need to be drawn all afternoon. This defeated the purpose of a glass window and any potential views would be blocked off. Air conditioning units would also have trouble keeping up with the constant heat that entered the building through the fixed windows in the stairwell.

Problem: The apartments owner did not want to change the external look of the building and decided the film should only be applied to the stairwell which had the heat issue. As traditional window films are either dark or highly reflective, the owner was faced with a problem if he wanted to keep the building looking the same from the outside whilst solving the heat issue.

Solution:
Sunscreen Window Tinting's 3M Prestige PR70 Series shows how far technology has advanced for window films on buildings and homes. The model uses a Multi-layer optical film technology which provides a window film product with a totally clear finish and a host of advantages.

Advantages of 3M Prestige PR70:
  • Angle performance enhancements
  • High IR reduction
  • Superior clarity
  • No corrosion
  • No signal interference
  • Low reflectivity
  • Optimised balance of performance and natural light
  • Reduces 97% of Infrared heat (this accounts for 50% of all heat, 23% of glare and 99.98% of UV rays.)

Results: The 3M Prestige PR70 provides residential and commercial property owners with a high performance clear window film that combines benefits given by heavily tinted or reflective films and cutting out the darkened rooms or mirrored windows. Having 1% higher reflectivity than the glass they cover means Prestige films will keep the appearance of your building. After performing installation on 60 windows, no disruption to the owner in a straight forward and efficient was what Suncreen Window Tinting promised. Air conditioning levels were also cut back too which would cut back costs for energy during the summer months.
