3M Prestige 70 for Skylights

Prestige 70 is part of 3M’s Sun Control window film collection. It is designed to make your home both light-filled and energy-efficient. While dramatically reducing reflectivity,  it also allows for very high transmission of natural light. What does this mean for homeowners?

First, keep in mind that there are two primary ways that the sun’s energy enters your home. There’s visible light and infrared light. Visible light is the kind that we can see with our eyes.  True, this kind of light is beneficial for life. However, it can pose a threat to both your skin and home furnishings. Next, you have infrared light. This is the light you can’t see, but you can definitely feel its effects. Like visible light, it can damage human skin. It also can fade art, furniture, carpets, and curtains. Here’s where 3M Prestige 70 window film comes to the rescue.

This innovative film features multiple non-metalized layers made with nanotechnology. This allows 3M Prestige 70 to reject up to 97% of the sun’s infrared light. Additionally, It rejects up to 60% of the sun’s heat that can come through your windows. Add these benefits together and your furnishing and interiors stay protected and so do you.

One more benefit of Prestige 70 window tint is that it also rejects up to 99.9% of the sun’s damaging UV rays. It’s an outstanding way to protecting your family from UVA rays is a vital way to avoid skin cancer. Your furnishings will also benefit from this sun-protecting film. Besides 3M’s comprehensive warranty, Sun Control window film can pay for itself in 3 years, based on the energy savings.
