Sun & Heat Control
Window Tinting Film
Take control of the climate in any room and reduce energy costs with our range of 3M Window Film.
Sun and Heat Control Films create noticeably more comfortable environments. Stan Bond offers a range of 3M Window Film types that will not only provide protection for internal furnishings, but help to reduce energy costs and maintain a more even internal temperature. Window films are often under-utilised as a part of a home’s window furnishings. Adelaide’s sunny weather and warm climate make it perfect for the glare, UV protection and solar heat advantages of window film.
Stan Bond chose to partner with 3M because their technology and lifetime warranty are unparalleled in the market. Known for amazing adhesives, 3M’s focus on cutting edge technology, including the patented multi-layered Prestige and Ultra series, brings window film options that our competitors can only dream of.
Stan Bond’s 3M Sun and Heat Control Film products provide unparalleled protection from the harsh effects of the sun. They reject up to 97% of heat-producing infrared rays and up to 99% of damaging ultraviolet rays, which can fade fabrics, window treatments, wooden floors, and furnishings.
One of the major drawbacks of traditional window films is that they tend to act like mirrors. From the inside, traditional window films make it difficult to see outside, especially at night, when interior lights are on. In the daytime, the outside reflection tends to give a home the look of a commercial building. 3M’s range of Night Vision and Prestige films use advanced technology to offer great heat rejection without the internal mirror effect. So, at night, you’ll have a clear view out of your windows – and your windows will only reflect your commitment to keeping your home looking beautiful.
The 3M range of Window Films include some amazing technologies. Explore the options at our display centre, or call and arrange for one of our consultants to take you through all the options.
3M have recently released a new film called Thinsulate, which gives protection from the sun during the summer months and adds a low-e coating to the interior side of the glass to keep the warmth in during the colder months. This Climate Control film gives a range of benefits not previously available on the Australian market which work perfectly for homes suffering from loss of heat through windows in winter.
The 3M Prestige Series Film is simply amazing technology. With two versions available – Prestige 70, which is almost optically clear, and the Prestige 40, which is tinted – the film provides a heat rejection of approximately 60% with no additional internal reflection. With customers loving the difference the product makes and how little it affects the light levels in their room, this has become our most popular option in window film.
Keep your home cool
Decrease ultraviolet damage
The 3M Prestige Series uses non-metallized, multi-layer optical film and nano-technology to prevent up to 97% of the sun’s infrared light as well as 60% of heat and 99% of ultraviolet rays coming through windows. 3M Prestige Window Films are designed to keep your home cool, comfortable and protected – without compromising natural light and views. Prestige Window Films are clear to lightly tinted, and will allow up to 70% of visible light through your windows.
The Ceramic Series Window Films utilise nano-ceramic technology to reject up to 80% of the sun’s infrared light, 59% of the heat and 99% of the ultraviolet rays coming through windows. 3M Ceramic Window Films are moderately tinted and provide additional glare reduction, while allowing up to 50% of visible light transmission.
NIGHT VISION SERIES
Night Vision Window Films reduce glare and reflect up to 71% of heat coming through windows via dual technology of metalized and carbon impregnated polyester layers. This dual reflective technology gives the film a bronze tint, providing enhanced day and night-time privacy whilst still allowing views to the outside.
3M Ceramic Series films bring you the three virtues that are most important: low reflectivity, high clarity and outstanding heat reduction – so you’ll save energy while keeping your interior cool and looking beautiful.
Using nanotechnology, 3M has created ceramics so fine they are not only invisible to the naked eye, they are imperceptible even with a microscope. These ceramics allowed 3M to create a film that is tough, won’t corrode and is so clear your view will remain beautiful.
The new 3M Ceramic Series delivers stellar performance against solar heat and sunlight. The spectrally selective films reject up to 80% of the sun’s infrared light to reduce energy costs, while blocking more than 99% of the sun’s harmful ultra-violet (UV) rays, which reduces the fading of fabrics.
3M Traditional Series Window Films possess a thin adhesive as well as a micro-metal coating. This allows the films to reflect infrared solar radiation, reducing the amount of heat being transferred through the window. The 3M Traditional Window Films work to reduce glare and ultraviolet damage and offer different levels of privacy, depending on the film chosen.
Stan Bond does not recommend Traditional Metal Spluttered films in many situations, as they are less clear, less effective, corrode near sea conditions and can reduce the effectiveness of wireless internet and mobile signal.
3M Lifetime Warranty
3M Window Films are warranted to maintain their solar properties without bubbling, peeling, cracking, or crazing. Many of our films are warranted against discoloration too. Should the product prove to be defective Stan Bond, 3M and the authorised 3M Accredited Installer will replace the film and provide the reapplication labour free of charge.
