What are window films?

  • Arrows demonstrate how window films let in the warmth of the sun without creating hot spots.

    Window films are a type of window treatment applied to windows and glass surfaces, designed to reduce the amount of solar heat transmitted through the glass and increase safety and security. The films help increase solar reflectivity, reject solar heat and reduce incoming ultraviolet light, resulting in a wide range of benefits:

    • Improved comfort
    • Improved energy savings
    • Increased privacy
    • Increased fade protection
    • Reduced glare
    • Increased safety and security


    While window films can be used with blinds, shades, curtains or other window treatments, the advantage they offer is solar control without an obstructed view. Unlike curtains or blinds that need to be closed to be effective, window films are designed to allow light in, help reduce heat and glare, and maintain your view, all at the same time. Window films can also help keep your building safer from break-in attempts without unsightly bars on the windows.

What can 3M™ Window Films do for your building?

  • Are your energy costs going through the roof? 3M™ Window Films can significantly reduce the amount of heat coming through your windows to help lower utility costs. Your tenants get a more comfortable environment, and you get increased energy savings.

    • Save more money, no matter which climate zone you are in
    • Use toward potential LEED credits

    • Reduce annoying glare
    • Increase insulation and reduce cold spots
  • Accidents and natural disasters can wreak havoc on your building operations, but you can be better prepared to cope with the aftermath. 3M™ Window Film can help hold broken glass together, preventing flying glass shards, the leading cause of injuries and fatalities.

    • Makes forced entry more difficult — can help to deter intruders for up to 2 minutes
    • Helps mitigate loss of assets

    • Enhance the appearance of your space and add branding

    • Flood deep rooms with natural light
    • Reduce the need for electric lighting
