Standard of Performance, Metallic Films Can't Match.

Until recently, most window films that rejected heat were tinted dark, used metal or were highly reflective.

Over the years, various other companies have tried to create a clear window film with mixed results. While they were able to achieve improved performance their drawbacks made them unacceptable for most fine homes.

Because these films used metal, they were susceptible to corrosion, especially in coastal environments, and interfered with mobile phone reception. Because the Prestige Series has no metals, they are the first films to offer a variety of selections that eliminate these problems and perform to the industry’s highest standards.

Reflectivity that’s actually lower than glass.


One of the major drawbacks of traditional window films is that they tend to act like mirrors. From the inside, traditional window films make it difficult to see outside, especially at night when interior lights are on. In the daytime, the outside reflection tends to give a home the look of a commercial building.

This collection of four window films have substantially reduced reflectivity. This premium line offers two styles of window films that actually have less interior reflectivity than the glass they cover. The other styles have interior reflectivity that is just 1% greater than glass. So, at night, you’ll have a clear view out your windows. Your windows will only reflect your commitment to keeping your home looking beautiful.

Superior heat rejection throughout the day.

For most people, there are two primary reasons for installing window films: rejecting heat to increase comfort and fade protection from damaging UV rays for furnishings. These films do both remarkably well.

To measure just how impressive these films are, we measure Total Solar Energy Rejected — On Angle. This test proves that our films are unsurpassed throughout the day and especially during the hottest times when you need the help most. So, when the sun is working hardest, our films are performing their best.

While some films claim similar performance (on the Angle Test), the fact is that their performance is only similar when tested perpendicular to the sun, which only can happen at the relatively cool times of sunrise and sunset. 3M's spectrally-selective films reject up to 97% of the sun’s infrared light* to help keep your home cool and lower your energy bills.

3M Window Films are designed to reduce the effects of solar heat and visible light on your furnishings and will block up to 99% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, which are the single largest cause of fading. While no film can stop fading completely, our films dramatically slow the process of fading to keep your home looking beautiful.

*IR rejection is based on 900 to 1000 nm range
