As energy costs continue to grow, efficient energy regulation and clean solutions become a vital part of business efficiency and cost-reduction. Our 3M Thinsulate Window Film is made to reduce solar heat gain in buildings. It creates an immediate impact on energy usage and a long-term reduction in HVAC maintenance costs. Our window tinting system may even delay or even completely eliminate the need to replace your building’s HVAC systems.
Window tinting rejects as much as 83% of the sun’s heat by causing it to bounce off of the glass and away from the building. This can translate into a savings of one ton of air conditioning for every 100 square feet of glass filmed. Without tinting, your windows allow the heat to pass through to interior spaces where it accumulates. This accumulated heat (often referred to as heat load) must be pumped out of the building by your HVAC system. By reducing the heat load, the HVAC equipment works more efficiently and at a lower overall energy cost. In the winter months, window tinting also helps retain interior heat and reduce heating costs up to 30%. With these benefits in mind, business owners could begin to see large gain in their investment from heating and costs alone.
As an additional benefit, our 3M technology filters out 99.9% of harmful rays to dramatically reduce fading. Since ultraviolet rays can create considerable damage on a building’s interior furnishings, wood, carpet and artwork, window tinting will prolong furnishing lifecycle and save you the replacement trouble and costs.

How We Helped CBRE Global Investors:

One of our biggest client for window tinting was for CRBE Global Investors. Laid out in a tiered mezzanine configuration with huge sloped skylights, the CBRE space provided spectacular views of the L.A. area. However, the same massive skylights that made the space unique created a number of challenges. “Previous tenants told us that it wasn’t the most comfortable space,” said John Bonomo, CBRE’s Director of Operations. “First, there was massive heat gain through the skylights. Second, there was a huge issue with glare.” One previous tenant had gone so far as to use umbrellas in an effort to reduce the effect of all the direct sunlight. CBRE, however, had a great deal of experience with a product specifically designed to address the issues: 3M™ Window Film.


“We’ve done a number of projects for CBRE over the years,” said Brad Campbell of Campbell Window Film in Huntington Beach, California. “The company understands that window film offers the easiest, no-maintenance solution for rejecting heat, blocking glare and preserving the building’s aesthetics.”


One of the project’s challenges was the mere size of the skylights. With roughly 11,000 square feet of glass, installation required the building of massive scaffolding that took a week to construct and a week to tear down. Once the scaffolding was in place, Campbell’s installers took about a week to apply the film, ultimately giving CBRE a cooler, more inhabitable space.
