THE BENEFITS OF UV-BLOCKING WINDOW FILMS
The sun’s UV rays can cause irreparable damage to your home, skin, and more. By installing uv blocking window film, you can prevent this damage from occurring and protect your family at the same time. You can still enjoy the sun without the harmful UV rays!
Here are the top reasons you should consider UV-blocking window films:
1. PREVENT SKIN CANCER
Throughout the day, we’re exposed to ultraviolet (UV rays) radiation. Excessive and cumulative exposure to UV radiation causes sun-related eye disorders, premature skin aging, skin damage, and skin cancers.
Studies have shown that using window film can limit UV transmission, reducing the likelihood of skin cancer.
UV rays bounce off sand and water, and penetrate glass. That means that even when you’re inside, you’re risking UV damage when you don’t have window film.
Back in the 1990s, researchers found that left-hand drivers had more skin damage on the left side of their bodies. The opposite was found for right-hand drivers. This was due to the UV rays constantly streaming through their windows.
Now, UV protective window film is available indoors. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends the use of uv blocking window film to prevent skin cancer, and found that the UV film blocks out 99.9% of UV radiation.
2. STOP SUN FADING
If you take a good look at your couch or rug, you may notice signs of fading, particularly where the sun hits them every day. From artwork to your coffee table, all furniture can be damaged by the sun. Window film can help limit sun fading.
UVB and UVA rays are damaging to the art, flooring, and furnishings in your home. Just as the sun damages your skin, it also damages your furniture, making it look faded and washed out.
By choosing a good-quality uv blocking window film, you can protect your furnishings from this exposure, ensuring that they remain in great condition throughout the years.
3. BLOCK HEAT
UV-blocking window film technology allows you to enjoy the sun while blocking some of the heat and lead to better heat control. This means that you won’t need to use air conditioning as often or as high during the summer. And that means cheaper utility bills through heat control.
Interestingly, uv heat-blocking window film can also help you reduce heating costs in winter, by reflecting interior heat back into your home. Now that’s a win/win in terms of heat control and cost reduction.
4. INCREASED PRIVACY
There are so many other decorative uv window film options available. The FASARAâ„¢ series offers options in etched, cut, sandblasted, and textured glass at just a smidgen of the cost of the real sandblasted and patterned glass. You’ll also find other options in Prism and Dot Glass Finishes. Let your imagination get away from you! Where could you add some style and elegance as well as UV ray protection in your home?
