Prestige Window Films Keep Your Home Beautiful


Until recently, most window films that rejected heat were tinted dark and used metals. In addition to being highly reflective, these films were susceptible to corrosion. Because these unique films use no metals, they are the first clear films to offer a variety of selections that eliminate this problem and perform to the industry’s highest standards.

Prestige Window Film for Sun Control

Prestige Window Film is the best sun control solution for your home


One of the major drawbacks of traditional window films is that they tended to act like mirrors. Our new Prestige Series has substantially reduced reflectivity. Our styles have interior reflectivity that is less than, or just 1% greater than glass. Your windows will only reflect your commitment to your home looking beautiful.

Prestige Window Film looks great in the glass room

Prestige Window Film gives you the best protection from heat and UV


These films selectively reject up to 97% of the sun’s infrared heat to help keep your home cool and lower your energy bills. And unlike other films that can only achieve similar performance during the cool times of sunrise and sunset, these films are unsurpassed throughout the day and especially during the hottest times when you need the help most. 3M Window Films are also 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.

The ultimate sun control solution for your condo

3M Sun Control films help keep out the heat and UV without sacrificing visible light


Creating a clear window film with all these advantages wasn’t easy. It required the worldleading, nano-technology laboratories of 3M. Nano technology works with materials that are over 1,000 times smaller than the width of a hair. This expertise allows us to create a window film with hundreds of layers that is less than the thickness of a Post-it Note.

3M Night Vision Window Film – Enjoy Clear Views, Day And Night


Now, even the light that fills your home can be just the way you want it. The new 3M line of 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. And, unlike most high-performance sun control films, Night Vision film has a low interior reflectivity that leaves your view clearer than ever, especially at night. That powerful combination makes Night Vision film a welcome addition to any home.


When you invite the sun into your home, you shouldn’t have to live with fading fabrics, wood, and wallpaper. Reducing fading is an important
reason that interior designers often recommend window films. Night Vision window film blocks up to 99% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays and rejects up to 71% of solar heat, so you won’t have to keep pulling your shades to keep your home beautiful and comfortable.

3M Night Vision 35 Window Film on Lower Windows

See the difference 3M Night Vision 35 Window Film makes

3M developed Night Vision film with a proprietary technology that maximizes sun control capabilities while toning down the interior reflectivity to allow for clear, unobstructed views, an uncommon feature among many sun control window films. The same technology also makes the films colorstable, significantly reducing the fading that often happens over time with dyed films. Depending upon the location of your home and windows, your authorized 3M window film dealer can help determine which shade is right for your home. As with other 3M residential window films, Night Vision film carries a limited lifetime warranty for as long as the buyer lives in the home.
