WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

What is the difference between solar screens and window film? Solar sun screens are fabric mounted on a frame attached to your home or building. In theory, solar sun screens serve the same purpose as window film: to block solar heat and block harmful UV rays.

The dense mesh material used in solar sun screens affect the appearance of your home or building and they also affect your view from the inside. Depending on how dense the solar screen material is, they can affect airflow when the window is opened. Solar screens tend to collect dirt and bugs and need to be cleaned regularly.

BLOCKS SOLAR HEAT

Just like solar screens, window film blocks solar heat which helps save energy and stops 99.9% of UV rays. Window film can also reduce annoying glare, while maintaining a crystal clear view to the outside. 3M Prestige Window Films are virtually clear and are less reflective than glass itself, keeping the appearance of your home the same, both inside and out.
