William Smith has once again boosted its portfolio with the addition of three advanced 3M insulation window films: Thinsulate Window Film Climate Control 40 (CC40), 3M All Seasons Amber 35 and 3M All Seasons Silver 20, which are ideal for interior application, to its ever-growing range of materials.
3M Thinsulate Window Film CC40 is an advanced solar control and insulating film, which both increases the insulation performance of windows, improving comfort during the winter and helps establish a cooler climate during summer,thanks to its heat rejection properties. The film's low light transmission boasts sun glare reduction properties and efficient UV protection.
Thinsulate Window Film CC40 joins 3M Thinsulate Window Film Climate Control 75, which provides the highest light transmission and a nearly invisible appearance, when it is critical not to change the look of a building.
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 for 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 multitude of benefits including energy cost savings all year round, with potential payback in less than three years.
The films can help extend the life of furnishings and protect against fading, by reducing the amount of harmful UV rays, which pass through windows.
Marketing manager of the group's building-related film division Architextural, Lindsay Appleton said: "The team is really excited to have these new materials within our portfolio. Insulating window films are 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.
"We are dedicated to providing our customers with the best quality materials and these new additions will provide them with even more choice."
