Most people know that powerful UV rays can harm your skin when you’re outdoors. UV film will help protect you while indoors. Many people are surprised to discover that UV rays can have damaging effects inside as well as outside. UV film is a great way to protect your skin and your belongings from the powerful sun’s rays.
Ultraviolet light (UV light) is a form of electromagnetic radiation produced by the sun, with a wavelength that is shorter than visible light. UV rays are invisible, but can cause skin damage from sun burns to skin cancer. Also, some people have special sensitivities to UV light and so they need to be extra careful to avoid ultraviolet rays.
When you are outdoors you can protect your skin from UV rays by wearing sunscreen. When you are indoors shutting the sun out using blinds or curtains tends to be the way most people protect themselves. However, who wants to block out the sun all day and spend time in a dark room? This is why UV film is a great option.
UV film is an invisible film applied to your window that is clear to the eye. UV film will stop radiation from seeping indoors, just like a blind. However, unlike blinds and other window coverings window film won’t block your view and will allow the light to enter your room.
Window film will stop 99.5% of harmful UV rays. Standard UV film is usually 50 microns thick, but there is the option of purchasing security UV film which is twice as thick (100 microns) adding to the security and safety of your home or business by making the glass more difficult to break.
UV film will not only protect your skin, it will also stop your belongings from fading due to sun exposure. If you are a business with a window display you can protect your display and increase its longevity by ensuring it is not affected by fading. In your home window film will protect your upholstery, furniture, carpets and wall hangings (like art work) from the damaging sun.
UV film has many benefits in your home or business and will help protect you and your belongings from the damaging effects of the sun.
