Window Solution’s window film installation continues to protect Filoli’s Mansion from fading due to UV exposure
If you visit Woodside’s Filoli mansion, one thing you will not see is the 3M Prestige Window film
Filoli is a country house set in 16 acres of formal gardens surrounded by a 654-acre, located in Woodside, California, about 25 miles (40 km) south of San Francisco, at the southern end of Crystal Springs Lake, on the eastern slope of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Now owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Filoli is open to the public.
After over 25 years the old window film at Filoli (3M RE35N) that Window Solutions installed in the 1980’s was due for an update. As seen in the library photo, the mansion is a showcase of Neo-Georgian style and it is completely furnished. A A top concern of this installation was to insure fade protection for the interior finishes and furnishings. After a rigorous investigation by the top preservationist in the country, Window Solutions was selected to remove and replace the existing window film. Since Fiolio’s is a favorite spot for both locals and tourists, we worked while the building was open the the public. After carefully removing the old film, we installed 3M Prestige 70 to the windows and glass doors throughout the interior of the main building. Obviously, a big challenge was the irreplaceable, antique glass. This takes experienced installer and Window Solutions once again demonstrated their expertise using the best product in the market (3M Prestige 70). We do this kind of work for all our residential customers both large and small in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Enjoying No Glare Views of the San Francisco Bay
Of the thousands of homes we have done in the Bay Area, we picked an ultra-modern residence with new glass and spectacular views.
Even with new modern glass system, the home owner started seeing sun damage. The solution had to be clear, cut all the UV and infrared, but keep the natural light.
Window Solutions installed 3M Prestige 70 window film throughout the house. This invisible installation blocks the UV and infrared rays and still lets in light. There is added earthquake safety from this window film because of 3M’s proprietary adhesive system. The entire installation is under a 3M lifetime warranty for material and labor for as long as the customer owns the home.
The 3M Prestige technology is color stable, cannot corrode like convention selective wave length films, and because there are no exotic metals, there will be no cell phone interference.
We also installed some custom decorative graphic films in the wet bar and bathroom.
This is a repeat customer. Thank you for letting us show off your home.
