Commercial and industrial buildings present tremendous challenges to owners in terms of heat control and tenant comfort. The reason is simple: lots and lots of windows. One of the smartest investments you can make in a commercial or industrial property is to hire a reputable, experienced company to install the industry’s best window film.
Quantifiable Energy Savings to Improve Your Bottom Line
Making your office or commercial building more energy efficient takes work, but Sunray(R) Window Films has options that are cost effective and low maintenance. If you’re considering replacing windows but find the cost prohibitive, Thinsulate™ Window Film makes good business sense. It insulates your windows for a fraction of the cost.
Another way to prevent excess heat from eating away at your monthly budget is to install 3M Affinity 15 Window Film , which prevents up to 79% of that heat from creeping in and forcing you to lower the thermostat. And by running the A/C less, you’ll extend the life of your facility’s cooling system and reduce unnecessary maintenance costs. In terms of dollars and cents, this can translate into a savings of about one ton of air conditioning for every 100 square feet of glass that is exposed to sunlight.
Increased Safety for Occupants and the Facility Itself
Simply put, windows break — and a shattered window pane causes a safety hazard to anyone in the vicinity, both inside and out. 3M Window Films use a proprietary adhesive technology to bond tightly to the glass, which means that while a window may break, the shards will remain in place, reducing the risk of injury.
If deterring intruders is another important concern, Ultra Series Window Films provide a greater level of protection without the need for unsightly bars.
The Ultra-Prestige Series Fragment Retention Window Film is our top of the line in Sun protection that provides energy savings and security. With its tear-resistant multi-layer composition it was designed to withstand severe weather, earthquakes, explosions, fires, terrorism, or vandalism while being virtually undetectable from the outside.
Universal Comfort No Matter What the View
While the corner office may be coveted for its location, if it’s on the sunny side of the building, it may be too hot to enjoy without cranking up the air. Sadly, when this happens, offices can range from comfortable to chilly to downright cold. With our Amber 35 Low E Window Film, you can stop the thermostat duel once and for all and balance the temperature more efficiently.
Extend the Life of Interior Furnishings from Sun Damage
A commercial or industrial building is already an investment, and successfully fighting the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays means replacing furnishings less often. Whether you’re leasing space to a tenant or have furnished a building with your own funds, you can protect that investment by reducing up to 99.9% of harmful UV rays and reducing reflectivity simultaneously.
Create a More Enjoyable Work Space
A superior window film can improve the overall comfort of your office building in numerous ways. In large commercial buildings, employees often draw their blinds in order to keep excess sunlight from interfering with their work. While daylight is better for productivity, the need to redirect the sun is often a priority. With Daylight Redirecting Film, employees have the best of both worlds—reduced glare and useful, abundant natural daylight.
Sunray® Window Films also offers Decorative Window Films that can be used on existing interior glass surfaces to create areas with more privacy. The interior glass of the offices within the building are now transformed from plain glass to an etched distinctive design. And if incorporating your company logo or unique artwork is part of your design approach, we offer custom cut textured decorative window film to help showcase your brand.
Increase Your Building’s Revenue Potential
Window film is the one building improvement that makes a noticeable difference both inside and out. By installing Prestige Window Film, your commercial building may even entice tenants to pay more — because they’re getting more. More comfort, more security, and more energy savings.
