Titan Solutions
You can’t drive more than a block
in Victoria or Vancouver without
encountering the work of Titan
Window Films. Look to the Royal BC
Museum, the David Suzuki Foundation, YVR,
scores of office towers, B.C.’s most secure
buildings and thousands of homes
and condos.

For 26 years, Titan has been providing
heat and light control, safety and security
and graphic window film solutions to
commercial and residential customers.
Headquartered in Central Saanich, Titan is
the exclusive authorized dealer and installer
on the Lower Mainland and Vancouver
Island for the 3M™ line of sun control and
security window films. 3M first invented
window film in 1966 and remains a world
leader in this technology.

“Today’s window films are amazing —
gone are the highly reflective silvery window
films of the 1970’s,” says Titan’s president
Doug Ritch, who bought Titan 18 years ago
and today operates the firm with partners
Randy De Bin, Ellar McKellar and a team of
eight employees.

One example of 3M’s leading-edge
product innovation is the Prestige series, an
optically clear proprietary nanotechnology.
It consists of over 200 layers of polyester, yet
it’s as thin than as a piece of paper.
Based on the cellular structure of a Blue
Morpho butterfly wing, it selectively rejects
up to 99.9% of damaging UV light, 97%
of the sun’s heat-producing infrared light
and up to 60% of the heat coming through
the windows. 3M accomplished all of this
without significantly impacting visible light
transmission or the appearance of your
home or office,” he adds.

"Our commercial and
residential customers trust
Titan and its 3M window
films to solve issues related
to sun control, security,
safety, privacy and brand
visuals. Our professionally
trained staff provides the
highest quality installation
for lasting results."

Another example is 3M's latest
technology, Thinsulate™ Climate Control
Window Film, a unique low-e film that helps
retain warmth in the winter and cool air in
the summer by increasing your windows
insulation value. A single pane window
performs close to that of a double pane

Doug and his team could easily spend
hours discussing the science behind 3M.
But equally important to them is talking
about trust, something they’ve earned from
quality-conscious 3M and which they work
hard to earn from their clients, from the first
consultation to the professional installation
required for 3M window films to the follow

“It begins with trying to understand the
problem a client is trying to solve before we
suggest solutions,” says Doug. “Whether
it’s a commercial client whose tenants are
roasting in an overheated building and
paying exorbitant air-conditioning costs,
a residential client who wants to protect

their expensive floors from sun damage, or
a large organization that wants a security

With 3M’s patented security film installed
by Titan, a window may break if enough
force is applied, but the security film will
hold the glass in place, serving to delay or
detract the intruder while audio glass-break
sensor notifies authorities.

Titan’s graphic division also offers 3M’s
full line of Di-Noc™ Architecture Finishes,
Fasara™ Glass Finishes and Scotchprint™
large format printing films. With in-house
expertise and production capabilities, Titan
can offer solutions to resurface expensive
fixtures and surfaces, provide privacy or
branding opportunities for your exterior or
interior windows or print, and mount almost
any image any size to any surface.

“We’re proud to represent the most
sophisticated and effective window-film
products on the market — hands down —
with 3M,” says Doug. “And I’d say the other
aspect of what has made Titan a leader for
all these years is our trained professionals.
They find out what our clients care about,
they make it a priority to provide the best
solutions and they do what they say they will
do. That’s the building block for trust.”
