3M™ Daylight Redirecting Film

Whenever possible, natural light is preferable to artificial lighting, but how do you control how it enters your building? 3M™ Daylight Redirecting Film moves light further into your building, which means natural light can substantially reduce the amount of supplemental light you’ll need. This equates to lower energy bills and a working environment that benefits occupants as well.

Reap the Rewards of Controlling the Sun

3M™ Daylight Redirecting Film has the following benefits:

  • Redirects natural light indoors by as much as 40 feet
  • Extends the “daylight zone” by as much as 8 feet for every foot of treated glass
  • Provides lighting energy savings of up to 50% or more compared to your standard usage
  • Creates savings of as much as 1.5 kwh per square foot of floor area
  • Requires no additional maintenance or special cleaning
  • Works even when the sun’s angle is low

Glare Reduction Equals Increased Productivity

Commercial and governmental buildings can be problematic to work in. Daylight enters the windows at numerous angles, which may send occupants scrambling to fight the glare instead of concentrating on their important tasks. 3M™ Daylight Redirecting Film can be easily applied to existing windows and dramatically reduces glare, making it easier for people to view their digital devices even when the sun is at its brightest.

How Daylight Redirecting Film Works

Light entering your home or commercial building will be directed toward the ceiling, which means that natural light can travel further into rooms and corridors. The 3M™ Daylight Redirecting Film contains micro-structured prisms that redirect more than 80% of the natural light, which means better natural lighting over a larger area.

Daylight Redirecting Film is installed in the upper portion of the window. (Transoms)
