3M Daylight Redirecting Film: Naturally brighten your day

Window Film Depot offers a new energy efficient technology, 3M Daylight Redirecting Film (DRF).  DRF is a cost-effective solution to provide natural light into your buildings and work spaces by redirecting daylight that enters through the upper portion of windows to the ceiling.

There are many benefits to optimizing natural light into your work space and buildings including reduced sun glare on your computer screens, increase in employee productivity, lower energy bills (less need for artificial lighting) and overall well-being of occupants.

As illustrated in the following image, 3M Daylight Redirecting Film redirects natural light as much as 40 feet into the building.  Composed of micro-structured prisms, DRF has the potential to increase the daylighting zone in a perimeter space as much as threefold.

The proof is in the numbers!

A client of ours recently conducted an independent study to test the heat rejection of solar film vs. no solar film on their windows.  Windows with sun control window film resulted in significant energy rejection compared to those without.

The test was conducted with a temperature data logger (MX1101) placed in each of the three windows: one with no film, one with Silver Solar film and one with Bronze Solar film.

Sees-Test windows

After six days of testing, the windows with tint yielded up to 10 degrees more heat rejection than those without.

Blue = No Tint * Brown = Silver Tint * Green = Bronze Tint

Employees in the area of the filmed windows also stated the temperature was much more comfortable and there was less glare on their computer screens.  Reducing the heat rejection will lower your operating costs while creating a more comfortable environment for your employees.
