Living and working in the South East Asia means we endure the extremes of summer – not to mention typhoon and the rainy season! Big, beautiful windows let in sunlight but also solar rays, which can raise interior temperatures and fade furnishings. Poorly insulated windows can make it hard to keep interiors comfortable during the hot summer and colder winter months, too. The changing seasons in Asia can cause air-conditioning bills to go through the roof!

Summer is one of the hottest and most unbearable times of the year, but if the high temperatures, humidity, and glaring sun have you seeking relief indoors, window film can help. Solar control window film helps both homeowners and business owners in Hong Kong reduce the effects of the sun.

Solar heat has two primary sources: the visible light you can see and the infrared light you can feel on your skin. Window film like 3M Prestige Series uses non-metalised, multilayer optical film to reduce glare, increase temperature control, and provide UV protection.

Reduce Glare

The bright summer sun doesn’t always spell fun; it can reflect off surfaces, causing glare and obscuring your view. Glare can strain the eyes by reflecting off of TV screens, computer monitors, phones, and tablets. Solar window film from 3M rejects up to 99.9% of UV rays to help significantly reduce glare. Window film allows you to let in the light and enjoy your beautiful view.

Increase Indoor Climate Control

Large windows let in those breath-taking views in homes and offices that we pay so much rent for, but they can also allow excessive heat to enter in the summer. Sunlight lets in solar heat in the form of infrared rays. Solar control window film helps keep interiors cool by rejecting up to 97% of infrared light and stopping up to 60% of the heat from coming through your windows. Having window film installed will allow the natural light while reducing reliance on air-conditioning. Conserve energy while enjoying the beautiful view by installing 3M window films.

Block UV Rays

Direct sunlight can be hard on interiors. Long-term exposure to the sun can fade furniture, photos, hardwood floors, and carpeting. Solar control window film helps reduce the effects of the sun by blocking 99.9% of the UV rays coming through windows. Protect interiors and prevent your property from fading by having film installed on your windows.
