66% heat reduction of interior spaces to improve occupant comfort.
Allows natural light into your home or business to minimize the need for lighting fixtures.
Low interior reflectivity to enhance the view from your window.
Low exterior reflectivity to maintain the attractive aesthetic of your home or business. Prestige Series window films are nearly invisible.
The Scotchshield™ Safety & Security variety of the Prestige Series also fortifies windows for improved impact resistance.
Why 3M’s Prestige Series is Special
3M evaluates their Prestige Series window films using the Total Solar Energy Rejected – On Angle test. The industry standard only tests the solar energy rejection of window films at a 90 degree angle, or perpendicular to the glass. However, 3M recognizes that the sun’s rays only strike a window’s surface perfectly perpendicular for a very small percentage of the day. To ensure that occupants reap the claimed benefits of sun control window film from sun up to sun down, 3M tests their products at acute and obtuse angles, in addition to the traditional perpendicular test. And sure enough, 3M’s Prestige Series Window film actually increases in performance at lower sun angles, which is when peak cooling loads are present. So when it gets hotter , Prestige works harder !
