How about a home window tint! 3M™ Window Films are designed to reduce the effects of the sun, making your home more comfortable and better protected from UV rays.

There are many reasons why someone would benefit from installing a professional 3M home window tint.

- Enjoy a year-round comfort climate indoors
- Save you on energy costs

Each home window tint offers a slight difference in quality, tint, look and feel. So, when it comes to selecting the right window tint for your home, we are here to help guide you to the option best suited to you.
Home window tints come in different shades, from light to dark, which some versions offer a reflective feature, while others have a slight coloured tint, such as a brown or blue tint.
Here are a collection of all the home window tint series products 3M and Total Tint Solutions can offer and install in your home.
3M™ Prestige Series
What sets our Prestige Series films apart is the precision with which light waves are controlled as they pass through or reflect off of hundreds of layers of film. Compared to other films, 3M Prestige Series Window Films increase their performance at a faster rate as the sun’s angle increases. That means greater protection and comfort when you need it the most.
All window films are tested when the sun is perpendicular to the window. 3M™ Prestige Series Window Films are tested and perform best when the sun is high, at the hottest part of the day.
Designed to maintain the appearance of your home, Prestige Series films combine reflectivity that’s actually lower than glass with films that allow up to 70% of the light into your home. The only thing you’ll see day or night, inside or out, is a beautiful window.
The selection in this series include;
“Prestige Range of films offer the 3M Patented technology, this technology allows the product to be high in light transmission with outstanding IR reduction.”Colin from Total Tint Solutions Myaree
3M™ Night Vision
3M Night Vision window films help block the sun’s damaging UV rays, reduce glare and reject up to 73% of the sun’s heat. These darker shaded films are designed to reject solar heat that is produced from visible light. You can let up to 35% of the natural light into your rooms by day, and, thanks to a low interior reflectivity, still enjoy the view out by night. Plus, higher exterior reflectivity means you can enjoy enhanced privacy with your windows both by day and night.
Basically, it is designed to reject solar heat that is produced from visible light, while providing significant glare relief.
Night vision options include;
3M™ Safety & Security Series
3M™ Safety and Security Window Films help to protect your home and your family from threats such as break-ins and severe weather events like hurricanes. They are designed to help hold glass fragments together in extreme situations, reducing potential injury from flying glass during severe weather and creating a stronger than standard film barrier against criminals. 3M Safety and Security Window Films are available in clear, safety-only versions, or as a combination film with both sun control and safety features.
