3M™ Residential Safety & Security Window Films Installed by Columbia Filters for the Home

3M™ Window Films can do more than shield you from high utility costs. They can help protect you from unwelcome events, like break-ins, or issues of privacy from surrounding exteriors. Our Residential Safety & Security Window Film is more popular and more effective than ever before. At Columbia, we’ve applied these window films on storefronts, in lobbies, and atriums, but now more and more homeowners are calling us in as well. And for good reason. Available in clear safety film or with a tinted sun control option, they protect without being obtrusive. Their superior strength can actually mitigate damage  by holding glass shards together in a forcible or unintended break in a glass window or door. They offer protection from windstorms as well as in wind-prone environments such as for houses along the shoreline or on a mountain in ski country. These films are designed for another security feature: the enhanced privacy these films provide to sensitive material on screens visible through windows, or places, like bathrooms or living areas too.

Columbia Filters Encourages You to Expand Your Point of View on Residential Safety & Security Film for Your Home

Ultra Series for Thick, Tear-Resistant Film Clarity for Peace of Mind
Ultra’s 3M™ technology employs a micro-layered composition to provide the ultimate tear-resistant safety window film by offering superior performance over standard polyester films in breaking events. Ultra is available in clear safety film or with a tinted sun control option for exceptional performance and a high degree of clarity. The first of its kind, these 3M™ Ultra Series films are made from clear, tear-resistant film. Ultra Series films can also be combined with many 3M™ Sun Control Films for the best of both worlds.

Safety Series: Residential Safety & Security Film with Sun Control Options to Reduce Glare
These 7 and 8 mil polyester films offer a basic, if not solid level of protection. Also available in clear safety film or with a tinted sun control option, these single-layer polyester films rely on thickness to provide additional security benefits. While they do not offer the superior tear resistance qualities of the Ultra Safety and Security Films, they do help provide a level of safety and security. Columbia Filters can also combine Safety Series window films  with 3M™ Sun Control Films for both enhanced safety as well as the benefits of a sun control film.

Privacy Series Protects Against Cyber Crimes and Unwanted Focus Through Your Windows from Outsiders
This window film series does just what it says: Adds a level of privacy to your residence, limiting views into kitchens, baths, rec rooms. It’s versatile too by providing an aesthetic appeal with numerous design options. The advantages of etched, cut, sandblasted, textured, blackout, or one way mirrors are clear: Enhanced safety and security can be provided through privacy. These matte, blackout, and mirror films limit views through glass on the building interior. Because these films come in rolls, they can be cut into numerous decorative designs, and can provide an updated look, while maintaining the privacy desired.

3M™ Impact Protection Attachment Systems for Added Defense Against Blasts or Breaks

The Impact Protection System bonds the filmed window to the window frame with either an adhesive or profile option. This enhance attachment system offers the highest level of protection—strong enough to help protect your family from breaking glass, but also creates a robust window protection system that significantly outperforms window film-only installations.

Year Round Comfort and 3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film from Columbia Filters

How well a space is insulated goes a long way in establishing a comfort factor. A drafty space or one with hot spots can compromise the workability of that space. To that, a working environment that has been well insulated, or evenly insulated, will not only provide even comfort but lower the amount of heating and cooling required to bring comfort to the space, and that translates to energy cost-savings. When Columbia Filters installs 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film it ostensibly improves the insulation value of a typical single pane window close to that of a double pane window, helping to keep the warmth in during the winter and the air-conditioned air in during the summer. Imagine that!

3M™ Thinsulate™ Controls Your Interior Climate
3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film is an effective insulator that helps keep the warmth in during the winter, and the cool conditioned air inside during the summer — keeping the weather out where it belongs – all season, every season. It helps reduce cold/hot spots in your buildings, improving overall comfort for you and your tenants and does not change up the window appearance at all.

3M™ Thinsulate™ Increases Energy Efficiency
Better insulation means lower energy bills. With Thinsulate you manage your energy costs at a fraction of the cost of replacing your windows. 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film is a low emissivity or “Low E” window film which improves the insulation value of a typical single pane window close to that of a double pane window, and the insulation value of a typical double pane window close to a triple pane window. So you are essentially adding the insulation factor of another pane without the tremendous time and expense of adding glass.

3M™ Thinsulate™ Maintain Window Appearance
3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window film is so unnoticeable that it has been installed on historic registered buildings to not only maintain the existing windows’ appearances, but to maintain code specifications, enhance comfort, and provide fade protection, too. 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window film is a virtually invisible film that Columbia professionally installs to the surface of your glass. It has a neutral appearance that will not dramatically change the look of your windows — from the inside or out.

3M™ Sun Control Window Film for Commercial Buildings Installed by Columbia Filters

Here at Columbia, Sun Control Films are among the most popular we install in commercial bulidings throughout NYC and the Tri-state area. That’s because they are not only worker-friendly in providing comfort evenly around a room, but they reduce glare as well, making workstations more productive. Providing an abundance of natural light in your buildings is a great way to conserve energy, too. You just keep the lights off! But sunlight can have its downside, and can create excessive heat and uncomfortable hot spots. It can fade furnishings and artwork, and create computer screen glare as well. Without proper filtration, harmful UV rays can enter the workplace creating a hazard for some. Whether your buildings are high-rise or low-rise or street-level retail or office, 3M™ Sun Control Window Films help control energy costs and provide tenants with a safer,  more comfortable working environment.

Columbia Filters Installs Three Different 3M™ Sun Control Window Film Products

Prestige Series Sun Control Uses Nano-Technology
Clearly superior, the Prestige Series window films use non-metalized nano-technology to create reflectivity that’s actually lower than glass. Retail displays shine, and views out of windows remain true to life because the only thing they’ll see day or night, inside or out, is the window itself. These spectrally-selective films reject up to 97% of the sun’s heat-producing infrared light and 99.9% of UV rays to keep you cool, comfortable and protected.

Ceramic Series Sun Control for Clarity and UV Blocking 
Amazing clarity. An advanced ceramics composition allows these films to maintain their color and appearance over their lifetime. The Ceramic Series provides amazing window clarity while rejecting up to 80% of the sun’s heat-producing infrared light while blocking 99% of UV rays, all with low reflectivity.

Night Vision Series 
Low interior reflectivity is the hallmark of our Night Vision Series. That means daytime privacy inbound from outsiders while allowing easier viewing through your windows to the outside at night. Night Vision film allows up to 35% of the visible light through your windows helping to block the sun’s damaging UV rays and control heat and glare. Medium to dark versions of this film also provide privacy so passerbys won’t be able to see into your building during the day.
