As this blog has emphasized, the benefits of commercial window film are wide-ranging. 3M, the leading manufacturer of window films, compiled a list of the top reasons commercial customers choose to have 3M film applied to their buildings:
- Extended A/C equipment life
- Improved aesthetics, uniform appearance
- Improved safety and security
- Improved tenant comfort
- Lower heating and cooling operating costs
- Lower utility demand costs
- Utility rebates
- Valued alternative to adding more A/C equipment
One of the major reasons commercial property managers select window film is for their capacity to improve tenant comfort. At the same time, they produce energy savings, making them a win-win. Window films benefit occupant comfort by deflecting harmful UV light. In turn, this decreases solar heat spots and glare, which can prove both uncomfortable and impossible to work under. By installing window films, workers are able to work in a comfortable environment with far fewer distractions. While window films block UV light, they do not block natural sunlight, which is beneficial to workers.
Increased safety and security are other key advantages of window films. We discussed 3M™ Safety & Security Window Films in a recent blog post. A Florida retailer had experienced a break-in, in which a thief ran off with valuable merchandise. However, after installing 3M™ Safety & Security Window Films, the business was able to thwart another attempted burglary.
A certified 3M window film dealer can install the materials in a week or less, so that your property can immediately experience window film's benefits.
