The winter season brings with it frosted windows – either from holiday decorations or the weather. But what if you want to have your windows look frosted year-round? Here are four reasons to consider adding 3M™ Fasara™ Glass Finishes to your home or office décor.
Reason No. 1: Add Style at the Fraction of the Cost of Replacement
Get the look that you want while saving money. With more than 100 design options, 3M™ Fasara™ Glass Finishes complement any décor – often at a fraction of the cost of actual window or glass replacement.
3M collaborates with leading designers from across the globe to consistently release new design choices. The films provide an etched, frosted or sandblasted look in a variety of textures, palettes and grades.
The film can be installed on interior and exterior glass surfaces by a professional film installer. Some films can even be cut to display logos or custom designs.
Reason No. 2: Increase Privacy and Block the View with Style
Made of a durable polyster film with a pressure-sensitive adhesive backing, these films provide increased privacy while helping to control the natural light.
3M™ Glass Finishes are designed to let in the natural light while still blocking the view of areas. In homes, these films have been installed on garage door windows, bathroom windows, shower glass, kitchen cabinets, entryway doors and more. Inside offices, these films are ideal for glass partitions, glass doors, cabinet doors and more.
While the film comes in various patterns, the films also can be custom cut to give you the look you desire. DesignFilm.com’s gallery includes photographs of actual installs throughout the Southeastern United States and may provide some ideas.
Reason No. 3: Easily Install, Remove and Replace when it’s Time
As the maker of Post-It® Notes, 3M is a global adhesive expert. A certified installer can install the films with little impact to you. The same installer can easily remove and replace the film when you decide you want a different look or you want to go back to the original glass.
The finishes have an expected performance life of five to 20 years for indoor, vertical applications on non-perimeter glass.
Reason No. 4: Fasara films are easy to clean
3M™ Fasara™ Glass Finishes also are easy to clean and maintain. In fact, it is recommended that the finishes are cleaned often to maintain their appearance.
Cleaning is only recommended after 30 days of install. Avoid using an ammonia-based window cleaner, chlorine or organic-based cleaning products.
3M recommends using a clean, nickfree tool and wipe gently in one direction. If there is dust and grit, 3M says to wipe it off with a soft, damp cloth. If the window is soiled, but not gritty, use water and squeegee. If there is heavier soil on the window, 3M suggests using a mild liquid detergent and water solution, then clear water, and wipe gently with a cloth wipe.
