|Window Tint Films for the Architect or Specifier|
Curtain-wall construction in commercial buildings is beautiful, but that beauty comes at a high price...solar heat gain, winter heat loss, intense glare, damaging UV radiation and unbalanced HVAC systems. On the outside, your tenants and their potential clients are faced with a building that can appear less than appealing due to a variety of window treatments, visible office furnishing systems and differing lighting situations. The use of 3M Architectural window tint film can be the solution to all of these problems.
Our specialized commercial products can reduce the solar gain by as much as 80% and UV penetration can be reduced to less than 1%. Studies have shown that using window film on the south, east and west-facing windows can reduce HVAC costs by 10 to 30 percent, offering your client a return on investment that can be measured in months in some cases. If you specify a tinted window film, the building will have that uniform look you originally had in mind, regardless of the configuration of the space inside.
