BUILDING OWNERS / PROPERTY MANAGERSMarch 17, 2019
At GlassEnery, we assist daily in the responsibility of helping commercial building owners and property managers find new ways to increase the energy efficiency, security, and aesthetic
appeal of your building(s). 3M Corporation has been manufacturing energy efficient solar & security window films for all types of curtain wall glass for over 50 years.
MAKING BUILDINGS MORE EFFICIENT
3M Window Films reduce solar heat gain during the hot summer months helping to reduce AC costs and can also lower the U-value for better insulation during cold winter months by reducing
heat loss. Ask us how we can convert single pane glass into double pane glass, double pane glass into triple pane glass, and make non-Low E glass perform exactly like Low E glass at a fraction
of the cost to replace with new glass!
3M Solar Control Window Films can achieve the following-
- Reduce utility bills by up to 15%
- Reduce interior building temperatures by up to 16°F
- Obtain up to 11 LEED points
- Improve ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager™ Score by up to 10 points
- 3M Window Films are usually eligible for rebates and custom incentives from power co.
If you’re thinking of upgrades to your current HVAC system, consider improving the efficiency of your current glass first. Often window film enhancements alone can reduce enough loads thus
offsetting the costs for additional upgrades or tonnage. By creating a more efficient building envelope, you may in some cases downsize your HVAC units, enabling you to maximize the
lifespan and investment of existing equipment while lowering monthly operating costs.
MAKING ORDINARY GLASS EXTRAORDINARY
The weakest part of any building is its glass. 3M Safety & Security Films help reduce the threat of glass breakage due to violent weather events such as tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes.
With the increased risk of terrorism and school shootings 3M Security films can give you peace of mind and extra time to make it to safety during such an event. Protect What Matters!
Retail stores worry no more! Reduce the chances for smash and grab burglaries. Help reduce tenant fears & merchandise loss by installing 3M Safety & Security Film on ground floor
windows. 3M Security films make it extremely difficult for an intruder to enter the space thus acting as a major deterrent.
As difficult as it may be to imagine, the threat of a bomb blast is more real today than ever before. Shockwaves can cause glass to implode in tiny high velocity projectiles causing major
threat to personal life and property. 3M Safety & Security Film can help hold glass in place from imploding and increase the safety of both those within the immediate vicinity.
3M DAYLIGHT REDIRECTING FILMS
How about a film that can re-direct the natural light into your work space while reducing the use and electrical consumption of traditional lighting? 3M’s new Daylight Redirecting Film allows you to simply apply to your existing curtain wall glass and in return redirect up to 80% of the sun’s light toward the ceiling and almost 40 feet into the building. Unlike light shelves or blinds, this film is a much more cost effective option and is always working 24/7 – no electricity required!
