This is about the time when we all start to think about making changes to make the next year better than the last. Lose weight, stop a bad habit, volunteer more, spend less money—all things designed to make us feel and/or look better. But what about your building? Is it as fit as it could be? Could it be more efficient? More attractive? More productive? Stronger?
Just like a gym membership for you, 3M™ Window Film can help your building improve its looks, trim down, feel better and have more energy. And just like with our personal resolutions, buying the gym membership doesn’t do a thing if we don’t go to the gym—only 8% of people say their resolutions were successful. That’s why it’s important to have a plan and set goals—it helps ensure we’re doing everything we can to improve ourselves and feel better.
Give your building a makeover. 3M™ Window Film will not only make your building feel better, it will make it look better. Excessive heat and annoying glare from the sun can have a big impact on tenant comfort. 3M™ Window Films can reject up to 79% of the sun’s heat and keep buildings at more moderate temperatures. A comfortable work environment is very inviting to prospective tenants and key to retaining existing ones.
Slim down your energy bills. When you put your building on a sun control diet with 3M™ Window Film, you’ll be able to firm up your bottom line. Did you know an estimated 33% of cooling expenses are due to solar heat gain from windows? Ouch—that’s like finding out how long you’ll have to run on the treadmill to burn off a small bag of chips—except it’s your cooling system that’s doing all the running.
Reduce annoying glare. They say everything’s better in moderation, but we think any glare is too much. 3M™ Window Film can help eliminate glaring problems, making it easier to view monitors in sunlit rooms. Tenants will love not having to squint or be uncomfortable all day—and our films help keep retail displays looking great.
Add strength with reinforced windows. 3M™ Safety Window Film and 3M™ Impact Protection Attachment Systems can help protect people and property from glass hazards, natural disasters, seismic events and spontaneous glass breakage. It can even let you flex your muscles and upgrade your glass to code at a fraction of the cost of replacing with tempered glass.
Chart a new course for productivity. Who doesn’t like natural light? That’s like asking who doesn’t like ice cream? With 3M™ Daylight Redirecting Film, you can redirect natural light as much as 40 feet into your building. That could help to increase employee productivity, boost retail scores, improve student test scores, reduce energy costs and more.
With 3M™ Window Film, your building will be fit—and you’ll have it made in the shade with energy savings, reduced glare, increased safety, fade and ultraviolet protection and more. Here’s to a new year and like-new building with 3M™ Window Films. Just call your Authorized 3M™ Window Film Dealer Installer and we’ll take care of the rest.
