3M™ Night Vision Series Privacy Window Film
- These metallized films are excellent at reflecting the heat away from your windows
- They provide privacy so no one can see into your room or building during the day
- They also ensure clear, unobstructed views at night (for rooms with warm lighting only)
3M Night Vision Series Window Films is a dual reflective technology that provides daytime privacy. This darker shaded film is designed to reject solar heat that is produced from visible light, offering the best glare reduction.
Features & Benefits
- Improved privacy during the day
- Enhanced views at night: due to its low interior reflectivity, the film offers enhanced views especially at night
- Excellent heat rejection: providing energy savings and enhanced comfort
- Reduce glare: this film significantly reduces glare and eye discomfort
- Blocks out 99% of harmful UV rays: UV rays cause furniture to fade. Blocking out UV rays help extend the life of furnishings.

Frequently Asked Questions
The 3M solar film warranty covers any peeling, bubbling, delamination and discolouration for the Night Vision Window Film.
Night Vision series has a warranty of 10 years for fixed and sliding windows and 3 years for casement (swing) windows.
We would recommend to install our 3M Night Vision Window Films only after all major renovation works are completed (e.g. hacking and drilling) and before any installation of curtains, blinds or grilles. This is because the condition of the site must be as clean and dust free as possible so as to minimise the chances of dirt trapped bubbles on the window film.
Night Vision Films and other 3M solar films help to address three issues that we face in Singapore, mainly heat, glare and harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. For example, if your room faces the hot afternoon sun or if you have severe glare concerns, we propose that you apply our 3M films for improved home comfort. If you want to keep your furniture looking new for longer, 3M films can filter at least 99% of the UV radiation that cause it to fade quickly.
For a more accurate quote, we will need to measure the size of your window panels. Based on your floor plan, we are unable to determine the window measurements. Hence, we would recommend that you Whatsapp our film consultants with a picture of your windows and your measurements or make an appointment with our sales consultant for an on-site consultation.
Yes, a darker Night Vision film is better at rejecting heat if you are referring to films within the same series by a particular supplier. For example, a darker shade of 3M Prestige Window Film (PR40) can reject more heat than a lighter shade of Prestige (PR70).
For different 3M series, such as comparing our Night Vision series and our Prestige Series, we cannot assume that a darker film means better heat rejection. To compare between series, download our Solar Film Comparison pdf catalogue.
However, if you are comparing across different brands, a darker film is not always better at rejecting heat. For example, our 3M Prestige Window Film provides the best heat rejection technology in the market and outperforms darker tinted films from other brands despite being a clear film.
Blinds or curtains keep relatively little heat out. For better heat reduction, we recommend trying 3M window films. They can also protect your blinds or curtains from UV rays damage, which cause them to fade quickly.
Traditionally, there was no single film in the market that can achieve both day and night time privacy, i.e. outsiders cannot look into your home during the day, but this effect is reversed at night. However, our 3M Night Vision films is the first in the market that allows day and night time privacy, with enhanced views with low interior reflectivity, especially at night.
Night Vision films allow 15% to 35% of the natural light into your rooms by day, and thanks to a low interior reflectivity, you can still enjoy the view out by night.
Visible Light Transmission (VLT) refers to the percentage of visible light that passes through the film. For example, our 3M Prestige PR40 film allows 40% of light to pass through, while our PR70 film allows 70% of light to pass through. You can get a good idea of the film’s VLT simply by looking at how darkly tinted the film is.
Total Solar Energy Rejected (TSER) is a statistic that quantifies the total amount of solar energy that is stopped from flowing through the window (UV light + visible light + infrared rays). When comparing heat rejection performance amongst film brands, consider the Total Solar Energy Rejected statistic as well as the Infrared Rejected metric.
No, films with a high TSER are not always better performers because they may be significantly darker or extremely reflecting, which may be undesirable. As a result, looking at films with the same visual light transmission (VLT) before evaluating their TSER performance is a better way to analyze the film’s performance.
- Do not clean the windows within 30 days of installation.
- After 30 days, you may clean your windows using water and a soft cloth or clean synthetic sponge. Please use a different cloth/sponge and water for cleaning the window interior and exterior.
- Do not use any newspapers, paper towels, bristle brushes or abrasive cleaning material. Avoid applying heavy pressure during cleaning.
We have films that allow more visible light to pass through while giving excellent heat reduction, such as the lighter shades of our 3M Prestige Series (e.g. PR60 and PR70). They do not change the outlook of the window much and you would hardly notice it is even there at all!
Yes, we can submit our film samples to the MA for approval. Our 3M Window Films have been approved for installation in many residential developments, such as ARTRA (PR40), Gem Residences (PR50 & NV35), Rivercove Residences (PR50 & CM50), Sol Acres (PR50).
*Once the MA approves our PR40 film, which is the darkest out of the four models in the Prestige Series, it means all the other 3 lighter models (PR50, PR60 and PR70) are approved too!
