Daylight Redirecting

Naturally Brighten Your Day with 3M Daylight Redirecting Film

Our Daylight Redirecting Film is designed to move excess light closer to windows and redirect it deeper into building to increase the day lighting penetration. Bringing natural light deeper into a building or office space provides the many benefits of natural light for building occupants while also reducing the need for artificial lighting. This can result in greater comfort and productivity for your employees as well as significant energy savings for your business.

Consider the following. Daylight Redirecting Film:

  • Reduces glare and discomfort caused by direct sunlight on employees.
  • Redirects natural light as much as 40 feet or more into a building.
  • Extends the daylight zone up to 8 feet into a building’s interior for every 1 foot of treated window.
  • Can provide up to 52% lighting energy savings compared to baseline usage.
  • Can provide savings of up to 1.5 kWh/sq ft of floor area.



Compared to existing light reflecting strategies, 3M Daylight Redirecting Film is easily integrated into new or existing windows. It requires no extra hardware or infrastructure, and no additional maintenance or special cleaning. Daylight Redirecting Film 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 daylighting solutions.



3M Daylight Redirecting Film, utilizes micro-replication to redirect light that would have originally hit the floor a few feet from the window, up onto the ceiling, helping to light the room as deep as 40 feet from the window. The technology “micro-replication” refers to microscopic structures that are able to redirect as much as 80% of light up onto the ceiling, providing more natural light, which has been linked to increased productivity and purchasing behavior, and helping to reduce your dependence on electric lighting.
