Introducing the revolutionary new Daylight Redirecting Film from 3M®

Posted on - April 20, 2018

An amazing new way to optimise natural light in buildings.

AND reduce glare too!

3M® Daylight redirecting film is a game-changer.

A completely new, technical break-through which provides a simple, effective way to bring natural daylight deeper into buildings.

Instead of the sunshine making your workplace unbearable, shining in your eyes and making computer screens unusable – make it work for you!


3M® Daylight redirecting film simply does what it says – redirects the sun’s light where you want it. 


This incredible new product moves the excess light coming through your windows and redirects it deeper into the room – providing the benefits of natural light and reducing the need for artificial lighting, which can save energy too!

It’s ideal for large open-plan offices, schools, hospitals, showrooms, retail spaces, factories – in fact any workplace environment.

It can also help in areas such as staff rooms and kitchens, store rooms, even toilets – it can mean that the artificial lighting is not needed at all during daylight hours!

Benefits at a glance:

  • Reduces glare and discomfort caused by direct sunlight
  • Redirects natural light to where you need it
  • Can provide up to 52% lighting energy savings
  • Can provide savings up to 1.5 kwh/sq.ft of floor area

More natural daylight can give you these additional benefits:

  • Increased employee productivity
  • Improved student test scores
  • Improved patient recovery times
  • Improved retail sales
  • Decreased absenteeism
  • Reduced energy costs


3M® Daylight redirecting film is easily integrated into new or existing windows, It requires no hardware or infrastructure, and little or no maintenance or special cleaning.

It works at all times of the day, even when the sun is at a low angle. Plus it’s more cost effective than many existing daylight solutions.


These next two images really show the power of 3M® Daylight redirecting film. You can clearly see how the natural daylight is redirected onto the ceiling on one side of the image where the film is applied, and on the other the dark areas where no film is present.
