3M Prestige Sun Control Films are 3M’s premium solar window film product. It has a unique high visual light transmission, whilst offering high heat reduction capabilities.
Large businesses and public sector organisations now buy allowances to cover their carbon emissions. Solar film reduces cooling load thus helping a wide range of organisations maximise their allowances.
Solar film also has a role to play in helping organisations meet health and safety obligations. Employee working conditions are now highly regulated. Organisations must comply with Regulation 7: that all work places must have moderate temperatures.
This requires temperatures to be maintained at a comfortable 19°C in general offices. Hot weather comfort is recognised as being 24°C or lower, and research shows that working performance can diminish by as much as 30-50% when temperatures rise above 24°C.
When the sun shines, the heat transmitted through the windows can quickly become unbearable. Solar window films reject high levels of solar infrared heat. This means it offers strong protection against bothersome glare, uncomfortable heat, hotspots and uneven temperature fluctuations.
