3M Thinsulate Low-E Window film

Climate Control Year Round Glass Film

Thinsulate technology has been used to insulate our coats, gloves and blankets for nearly 50 years. Now, Thinsulate window film will be providing comfort, warmth and quality to the existing windows in our homes. Insulating a home or a building is not a new idea. Many of us have seen the yellow fiberglass batting, insulation sprayed into the attic or the foam boards often used for insulation on homes and commercial buildings. These are all commonplace solutions to help keep heat inside a building during winter months. These solutions work for the walls and roof of buildings, but what has been done about the windows? The windows can be up to 30 times less insulated than the roof and walls. While windows often account for a small portion of the shell of a building, more than 30 percent of all the heating and cooling energy used in homes and buildings in the US is due to heat lost or gained through windows. Now we have a cost effective, year-round solution to upgrade existing windows.

 

3M Thinsulate Climate Control Low-E provides the traditional benefits of 3M™ Sun Control Window Film by rejecting heat and blocking harmful UV rays. But it also takes performance a step further to protect against heat loss during cold weather. The film has a patented construction that helps reflect more interior heat back into the room, improving personal comfort by reducing cold drafts near windows, which can help save on energy costs. The high visible light transmission provides a neutral appearance that doesn't change the look of your home or building.
