At least 50% of the sun’s UV rays are capable of passing through automotive, residential and commercial windows. These rays penetrate deep into the skin causing DNA damage that can accelerate visible skin aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines, and can lead to skin cancer. UV rays can also severely damage your eyes and vision. Long term UVA exposure may lead to macular degeneration and UVB rays have been directly linked to cataracts. Both of these can cause a decrease or loss of vision. UV rays can also cause conjunctival and intraocular melanomas, conjunctival and eyelid cancers, as well as benign growths on the conjunctiva.
UV Protection for Automotive, Residential and Commercial Windows
Employees stationed near windows (in commercial buildings and vehicles) experience significantly more rough-textured, wrinkled and sagging skin on the side of their body closest to the window and UV rays. Vehicle windshields are partially treated against UVA rays, but are not able to provide full protection for all passengers. Also remember that darker, untreated glass does not necessarily ensure UV protection. Residential and commercial window tints increase the health and safety of your family, employees, clients, merchandise and furnishings by providing a layer of protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Residential and commercial window films offer an affordable and effective option for retrofitting existing windows rather than having to replace them. These window films are also able to cut down on glare by more than half.
