New! Prestige 20 Window Film from 3M™

With grateful appreciation to our friend “across the pond” – Abode Window Films, UK

A New Addition to the Prestige Series of 3M Window Films

With Prestige 20, 3M has added a “dark” shade to the Prestige Series. Here at Firehouse Tint & Clean, the usual request is for a 3M film that will block heat and glare yet not be “too dark!” The Prestige Series was developed with that in mind. Prestige 70, 60, 50 and 40 do an excellent job of blocking the heat, especially when the sun is higher in the sky and at its hottest point (total solar energy rejected, on angle). But some situations require a darker film to block more of the sun’s glare.


Why So Dark?

There are many situations where a darker film may be desirable. High transoms (especially arch windows) that do not have any window treatments to block the sun are an excellent example. Or any window that lets the sun shine on the TV, or even an important piece of art. Perhaps it is a sliding glass door right by the kitchen table. Morning sun can be bothersome at breakfast and the setting summer sun annoying at dinner time!  Prestige 20 would be an excellent choice in any of these situations.

Since Prestige 20 is part of the Prestige Series, it lends itself to split installations – perhaps PR 50 or 40 on lower windows and PR20 on the upper windows.
