Window film was first invented by 3M™ in 1966, and at the time, it was a ground-breaking achievement. Early window films used metal to deflect the heat. The higher the metal count, the more heat the film blocked and the more the film resembled a mirror. The film reflected the blinding sun during the day on the outside of buildings. From the inside, the film reflected the light from lamps and other fixtures preventing a clear view to the outdoors. Through decades of R&D and advancements in technology, 3M window films have come a long way since then. In fact, with 3M Night Vision Window Film, it’s easy to enjoy all the benefits of window film without an obstructed view, even at night.
Night Vision Window Film
Window film products of the past made interior spaces feel dark and closed in. But as technology advanced, a Night Vision Window Film was developed by 3M. This innovative film maximized sun control capabilities while toning down interior reflectivity. This allows for a much clearer view, especially at night when lamps are lit. Imagine reading a book in the evening while still seeing outside to enjoy the nighttime view. During the day, the film blocks damaging UV rays and heat while pleasant natural light flows in.
Saving Money and Staying Cool
3M Night Vision Window Film can reduce solar heat in an interior space up to 71%, helping to reduce air conditioning costs and keeping your home or office cool and comfortable. In addition to reducing heat and glare, Night Vision Films also block 99% of the sun’s harmful rays. As a result, this product can also save you money by extending the life of your furniture and floorings. UV light can fade everything from fabric to hardwood floors and permanently damage artwork and precious family photographs. By using Night Vision Window Film, you can eliminate the expense of costly window treatments and replacing faded furniture and rugs. This added layer of protection against the sun’s heat and damaging rays can also protect your family’s health, allowing people to sit anywhere they wish without worrying about sun exposure, eye discomfort, or glare.
The Night Vision Series
Night Vision Window Films come in three shades — NV15, NV25, and NV35 — from darkest to lightest. On clear double pane windows, NV25 will reduce heat by 29%, glare by 72%, and UV light by 99%. Homeowners and businesses can select one of these three levels of protection to tailor a 3M™ film installation to their needs.
3M’s patented abrasion-resistant coating and innovative adhesives combine to give you an optical grade window film that resists peeling, bubbling, scratching, and abrasion for lifelong beauty and clarity. Today’s product is also color-stable, eliminating the tendency of older films to fade and yellow, thereby preserving the beauty of your windows both inside and out and providing a cleaner, more inviting look.
