Sunscreen Window Tinting Improves Customer Safety & Security with 3M™ Scotchshield™ Ultra 400 Clear Window Film

PROBLEM:
As project managers neared the completion of the one hundred plus year old, three storied, newly restored, heritage aged care building. They pondered how best to protect the residence in two ways.

First, they wanted to preserve the furnishings and fabrics, carpets, and artwork from the damaging effects of the sun. And second, they wanted to supplement the buildings safety and security system by making it difficult to break through the building’s glass windows and doors.

Expressing their concerns; the glass in the building in most areas was predominantly 3mm plate. The client questioned if Sunscreen could provide such a film that could be applied to the inside of the existing glass to bring it up to Australian 2208 as a Grade A Safety Glazing Material safety standard, & still remain clear with out having to replace all of the 400 glass panes or alter the look of the glass.

SOLUTION:
3M™ Scotchshield Ultra 400 Safety & Security Film: 28 Micro Layers & 98% U.V. Protection. Because the architect’s priority was maintaining the building’s aesthetics, Sunscreen recommended using an optically clear 26-microlayered window film, SCARL 400 Superior Strength Clear, which is part of the 3M Scotchshield Ultra Safety & Security line of window films.

In addition to blocking up to 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays, these window films dramatically increase the level of safety and security of glass windows and doors by serving as an invisible shield to make it extremely difficult to break through glass.

RESULTS:
By strengthening the window surfaces, the film will substantially reduce the effects of flying shards of glass if broken, increase security & protect furnishings from damaging ultra violets rays. Since the restoration, the residents have reassurance with the added protection preserving the building’s furnishings and their personal belongings increasing safety and security.

BENEFITS:

  • Protects skin and extends the life of furnishings by significantly reducing UV rays, the largest cause of fading
  • Low interior and exterior reflectivity, enjoying clearer views.
  • Comprehensive 3M manufacturer’s warranty
  • Increases personal safety from flying glass
  • Superior scratch resistant coating
