3M window film solutions appropriate for private individual's homes.

Residential Building

Residential Buildings safety trends

Residential houses have specific challenges when it comes to security and energy management. Private individuals that want that little bit extra piece of mind can secure their windows with 3M safety and protection film.

In the event of attempted forced entry the smashed glass is retained in the frame and the aperture not compromised even after considerable force from a would-be intruder. You can sleep safe at night in the knowledge you and your possessions are safe from smash and grab through your windows.

3M film can also shore up glazing in windows and doors from accidental breakage or from a trip or fall into the glass. This may be particularly appropriate with older single pane glass or if you have children running around.

Residential Buildings solar trends

If your property has large windows or windows that get a lot of sun, your furniture, curtains, carpets, paintings and ornaments are at risk from fading from the sun's rays.

3M solar control film can cut out up to 99.9% of UV rays, the single largest contributor to colour and pigment fade, protecting your belongings.

Your home is your place to relax and being too hot or too cold can certainly increase stress levels. Applying 3M film to your windows can improve comfort levels as the 3M technology manages the suns energy and heat levels.

This results in the sun's energy in the summer being reflected keeping you cool and heat retained in the winter keeping you cosy. An energy saving can therefore be achieved as heating and air conditioning systems do not have to work as hard reducing your utility bills.
