TintFX installed 3M Prestige 70 Exterior, non-metalised solar control window film, on the windows of this Southern Highlands residency to reduce solar glare and improve the energy efficiency of running the property’s heating and cooling systems.

In Beacon Hill there stands a house with glass for walls. While this looks beautiful and offers plenty of natural light, it also means people can see into the house. On top of this the volume of light caused extreme glare and heated up the room to unacceptable standards.

TintFX installed Slate 10, a dark yet reflective film. Since then it has enjoyed far more privacy, the rooms are now usable and money is being saved from the air­conditioning bills.

For 50 years 3M has engineered windows films that reduce solar heat, block harmful UV rays and decrease energy costs for cooling.

How does Solar Window Film work?

All our solar window films are thin multi-layered sheets; sputter coated with exotic metals such as gold, silver and bronze, to provide the best defence against solar heat and UV damage while still maintaining those views you have come to love. With the ability to be retrofitted to a wide variety of windows, solar window film avoids costly window replacements while providing a reliability and convenience unavailable with traditional window blinds.

Visually our films range from subtle greys, providing effective solar protection while maintaining visibility from both inside and outside the window, to powerful reflective metals, providing a modern, refined look to your building from the outside whilst delivering privacy and maximum solar protection.
