Fortunately, our team at Professional Window Tinting in Newark, Delaware, and Baltimore, Maryland, can work with you to find a window film that meets the needs of your business.

Window Film Products & Their Functionalities

Sun Control Window Film: Improved Comfort & Energy Efficiency


  • Heat Rejection: High-quality commercial window films are engineered to significantly reduce the amount of solar heat transmitted through windows. This will help you to maintain a cooler commercial space while simultaneously improving your business’ overall energy efficiency.
  • Glare Reduction: Commercial window films also provide an effective solution for minimizing glare. This will go a long way in maintaining your employees’ productivity and in-office comfort. By filtering out harsh sunlight, these films allow natural light to enter without the discomfort and visibility issues associated with direct sunlight.
  • Boosted Energy Efficiency and Comfort: Installing commercial window film is also an effective way to stabilize indoor temperatures year-round. This leads to less energy consumed by heating and cooling systems, resulting in lower utility bills and a consistently comfortable working environment.
  • UV Protection: Commercial window films provide excellent protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Windows welcome natural light and outdoor views but also open up your space to problems like hot spots, glare, and harmful UV rays. Sun Control Window Film addresses these issues while welcoming natural light into your space. Depending on the film you select, it can reduce up to 78% of the sun’s heat. By rejecting the sun’s heat, window film takes some of the work off of HVAC systems, lowering energy bills. Additionally, it rejects up to 99% of UV rays to protect furniture, flooring, and occupants’ skin. This film also has the ability to minimize bothersome glare so occupants can work comfortably. Some of our 3M sun control products include:

Decorative & Privacy Window Film: Boosted Privacy & Aesthetics


  • Increased Privacy: Commercial window films are available in a range of opacities, providing customizable levels of privacy while still allowing for light transmission. 
  • Maintain a Naturally Lit Space: Reduce glare and block harmful UV rays without sacrificing the natural light.
  • Enhance Aesthetics: Commercial window films are available in various designs, textures, and colors. An incredibly easy and cost-effective way to spice up your commercial space!

In the workplace, architectural trends tend to lean towards natural lighting and open floor plans. Many opt for an office space full of windows and glass conference room walls to achieve this. While glass provides an open feel, it also creates a lack of privacy. Not to mention, excess glass can seem redundant.

Decorative and Privacy Window Film can create privacy where necessary, without eliminating natural light! Available in numerous patterns, colors, textures, and opacity levels, Decorative and Privacy Window Film allows you to customize your level of confidentiality. Not only does it create privacy, but this film can also be used to enhance the interior design of your space. If complete privacy is your end goal, you may select a frosted film. On the other hand, if you’d like to add a unique element of design to your space, you may select a patterned film. With so many designs available, the options are endless! We offer two lines of decorative window films: Solyx and 3M Fasara. Other privacy-specific films we offer include Smart Film and Casper Cloaking Technology.

Safety & Security Window Film: Increased Protection of People & Property


  • Increased Security: Commercial window films make it so your windows are more resistant to attempted break-ins or accidental impacts.
  • Protection Against Inclement Weather and Natural Disasters: By holding shattered glass in place, commercial window films can provide an additional layer of safety during severe weather events or natural disasters, helping to protect occupants and interiors from flying glass debris.
  • Deter Break-Ins: The reinforced barrier will make windows harder to breach.

Windows are the most vulnerable point of your space. From break-ins and bomb blasts to inclement weather, an unexpected event can wreak havoc upon your space. Not to mention, if a window is broken, it can send flying shards of glass into your space, potentially causing more harm and damage. With 3M Safety and Security Window Films, you can prepare your space for whatever comes its way!

3M Safety and Security Window Film adds a virtually invisible layer of protection to windows. If a window is broken, this film holds the glass in place! As a result, it minimizes damage and harm caused by flying shards of glass. It can also allow extra time to react in an emergency and deter criminals from entering your space. In order to further increase security, 3M Safety and Security Window Film can be paired with 3M Impact Protection Adhesive (IPA) Attachment Systems. This attachment anchors to the window frame, providing even more security.
