With 3M™ Prestige Window Films, you can enjoy the benefits of a world-class window film while leaving the beauty of your windows virtually unchanged.

Other window films that reject heat tend to have high reflectivity, but not Prestige – Prestige Window Films offer reflectivity that is actually lower than glass.
While windows on a building provide views to the outside and can reduce the need for artificial lighting, it increases the need for cooling as the inside heats up from the daylight. Commercial window film is an effective solution for improving energy efficiency and reducing solar heat gain. The film, which is placed on the inside of a window, is designed to reflect and absorb heat. A film-treated window maintains a cool and comfortable temperature throughout the entirety of a building, in addition to minimizing the need to be cooled. For Iowa City buildings that face north and south, they typically need additional cooling, while solar heat is also an issue for buildings located in colder climates. Because of how it improves energy efficiency, the use of window films are encouraged as recognized as being an energy-efficient retrofit.
3M Safety and Security Window Film helps hold your glass in place during destructive weather conditions, bomb blasts, explosions, or smash and grab burglaries. It helps maintain the integrity of a structure’s outer shell to keep wind, rain and flying glass fragments from wreaking havoc inside the structure. Our films can also reject harmful UV rays, which cause fading and lower energy costs.
