3M™ Sun Control Window Films provide a cost-effective solution for meeting building codes for Solar Heat Gain Coefficient or U-value. Window films are effective in reducing glare, providing occupant comfort by reducing hot spots from the sun’s heat and providing UV protection to building interiors. 3M Sun Control Window films reduce the solar heat gain coefficient of current windows to reduce the solar load entering a building. The building HVAC system will have a smaller load to cool, thus reducing operational energy use. 3M™ Thinsulate films can improve the U-value of the windows to reduce the need to run heating systems in the winter as well.
