Carolina Solar protected this home in Chapel Hill with window tint from 3M’s Sun Control Prestige series. For this project, we installed Prestige 70 High Performance UV and IR Blocking window film. The Prestige series by 3M is the first in the world to use nanotechnology to create an optically clear window film comprised of 200 layers of polyester that reflects away heat while letting natural light come through. The Prestige 70 window film allows 70% of natural light to come through without reducing the clarity of your view to the outside.
