All darker films will help to reduce glare. Options include: 3M Night Vision, 3M Ceramic, 3M Prestige, and for additional security benefits, 3M Ultra SNV 25 600, depending on your budget and other film priorities.
While window film can still be installed internally on double glazed windows, this means that heat is still penetrating the outer layer of double glazed units and warming the gas-filled space between the two layers of glass. For this reason, we recommend using an exterior window film, as this will reduce the heat penetrating the first layer of glass, resulting in a much more significant cooling effect for your home. The 3M Prestige Exterior Range is ideal for double glazing.
Window film is not compatible with low-e glass, as installing film on the interior surface of low-e glass will negate the benefits of the low-e glass coating. It is also impossible to remove the film at a later date without damage to the low-e coating. For Low E Glass, we recommend installation of an exterior solar control film, as the exterior surface of the glass does not have a coating and film can be safely and applied for fantastic heat reduction benefits.
3M Thinsulate Climate Control film is a virtually invisible film that is installed to your existing window to add an insulating layer to your windows, resulting in similar benefits to double glazing. It will stop up to 40% of heat loss through your windows in Winter, while rejecting 47% of solar heat energy from the sun in Summer, without any loss of natural light or your views. The added insulation to your glass will reduce your energy bills and enhance your comfort all year round. Like all 3M Window films, Thinsulate also stops 99% of UV radiation, so it will also assist to reduce fading of your home's surfaces.
All 3M Window Films block between 99 and 99.9% of UV Radiation, the single biggest cause of fading in homes. Please select your next biggest priority after fading to see your film recommendations.
Please note that this 3M Window Film Selector Tool is a guide only. Our free measure and quote service is still recommended to determine the suitability of the film for your home and glass type. Not all film types are compatible with each glass type.
