William Smith adds 3M’s advanced insulation window films to its portfolio

William Smith has once again boosted its portfolio with the addition of three advanced 3M insulation window films.

3M’s master distributor of window films, William Smith, part of the William Smith Group 1832, has added 3M Thinsulate Window Film Climate Control 40 (CC40), 3M All Seasons Amber 35 and 3M All Seasons Silver 20, all of which are ideal for interior application, to its ever-growing range of self-adhesive films.

3M Thinsulate Window Films are combined advanced solar control and insulating films, which increases the insulation performance of windows by 40 per cent. The impressive films improve comfort during the colder Winter months by retaining warm air and helps to establish a cooler climate in the Summer months, thanks to its heat rejection properties.

As a single-pane window loses 20 times as much heat as the same area in an adjacent well insulated wall, Thinsulate Window Film helps to improve the insulation value of a typical single-pane window close to that of a double-pane window, and of a double-pane close to that of a triple-pane.

The film’s low light transmission boasts sun glare reduction properties and efficient UV protection, which means interior furnishings are protected from potential sun damage.

The application of film provides a more cost-effective option than fully replacing the glass in a building and the results match the performance and appearance of new glass.

Thinsulate Window Film CC75, which has a durability of 15 years, can be applied on flat glass substrates, is suitable for wet application and provides virtually invisible insulation, which means it will not impact a window’s aesthetics

Thinsulate Window Film CC40 joins 3M Thinsulate Window Film Climate Control 75 (CC75), which provides the highest light transmission and a nearly invisible appearance that does not change the look of the building, while the CC40 has a lower light transmission, but features better sun control and glare reduction properties.

3M All Seasons Series provides an alternative, budget-friendly insulating option to the Thinsulate range. Both metallised solar control films combine both solar control and insulating properties to provide a great all year-round performance. The range includes both All Seasons Silver 20 and All Seasons Amber 35.

With the series’ high heat rejection properties and increased insulation properties, the window films provide a whole host of benefits, which include energy cost savings all year round, with potential payback in less than three years.

The films can also help to extend the life of soft furnishings and protect against fading, by reducing the amount of harmful UV rays which pass through windows.

All Seasons Series, which has a comprehensive durability from 3M, can also help to improve productivity in the workplace due to the films’ glare reduction properties.

Marketing manager of William Smith Group 1832’s building-related film division, Architextural, Lindsay Appleton said: “The team is really excited to have introduced these new materials to our portfolio. 

“Insulating window films provide a simple, yet effective way, to reduce glare and discomfort caused by direct sunlight, keeping you cooler in the Summer and warmer in the Winter, not to mention the excellent energy savings they provide too!

“3M Thinsulate Window Film CC40 and 3M All Seasons Amber 35 and Silver 20 are fantastic films and they are ideal for internal application in offices, hotels, restaurants and many more.

“We are dedicated to providing all of our customers with the best quality materials and these new additions will provide them with even more choice.”
