    3M Architectural Finishes

    Based on 3M’s tradition of innovation and technological know-how, 3M Architectural finishes offer flexible, creative and technologically advanced surface finishing solutions for architecture and interior design. With a wide range of architectural finishes and decorative window glass finishes, 3M Architectural products help designers create a complete mood or atmosphere, defining specific character of any environment. 

    Our range further extends to our window films offerings in which 3M was issued the first sun control window film patent in 1966. Our innovative window film products have helped provide protection from the sun’s harmful rays for 50 years. Unlike curtains or blinds that need to be closed to be effective, window films are designed to allow light in, help increase solar reflectivity, reduce heat and glare, and maintain your view, all at the same time. They also increase safety and security; these innovative glass solutions offer enhanced protection from accidents, break and entry, and flying glass fragments.

    3M technologies are engineered to create design excellence, enhance human comfort and respect environmental sustainability, globally.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    It is not generally recommended to connect snap-hooks and karabiners to each other. There is a significant risk of cross-gate loading or unintentional roll-out when hardware is connected together in this way, which may lead to disconnection or system failure. Where connection between a lanyard with a standard hook at the tail end and a scaffold hook is required, provided that the lanyard has a triple action karabiner at the tail end, it can be used to connect to the scaffold hook eye end in certain circumstances. The hook needs to align with the applied load (if connected to the eye of another hook, the hook / karabiner may not be able to move or rotate when a load is applied). Care should also be taken to ensure the length of the lanyard is not extended beyond 2.0m with the addition of the scaffold hook, such that the maximum free fall distance may be exceeded. The Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1891.4 does not refer to this type of connection, instead referring only to 'snap hook to snap hook' connections and the compatibility of this type of connection, which is specifically not recommended.​
    A harness should be worn over winter clothing where no allowance is made for the protrusion of the fall arrest rated attachment points. It is more visible for inspections and there is less chance for clothing to interfere with buckles and attachment fittings.​
    The lanyard has a 160kg capacity when used for a maximum allowable free fall up to 2 metres. It can also be used by someone as low as 50kg in weight, with no effect on its performance.​
    ​Yes, if the scaffold will support the potential loadings, and the scaffold manufacturer approves such use, you can attach your fall protection system. Make certain your connecting hardware incorporates hooks large enough to fully close and lock when attached to the scaffolding (for example, a Lanyard with a scaffold hook).​​ Also make sure the connecting hardware (snap hook) is allowed to be used in this orientation.​
