Window Films Help Reduce Skin Cancer Risks

You take precautions for sun protection when you plan to spend time outdoors with sunscreen, hats, long-sleeved clothing, etc, but do you protect yourself from skin cancers and visible signs of skin aging while you are indoors? At least 50% of the sun’s UVA rays can pass through windows and penetrate deep into your skin. This causes DNA damage that may accelerate skin aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, and lead to skin cancer. Window films from Spectrum Window Tinting offer protection from UVA rays while you are working at your business, driving in your car or relaxing in your home. Window films are able to block up to 99.9% of UVA rays. Window tints are available in a variety of tints from dark to nearly invisible, allowing you to choose how much light you want to shine through.

Automobile Windows
Safety in automobiles is not just seat belts and airbags. Window tint is a critical line of defense between the sun’s harmful rays and your skin. Long time drivers of vehicles without protective window tint have been found to have more skin damage (more wrinkled, rougher and more pigmented) on the driver’s side of their bodies due to increased sun exposure on that side. Short wave UVB rays are filtered out by your vehicle’s windows; however, the windshield comes only partially treated against UVA rays. Also to note is darker glass doesn’t necessarily ensure adequate UVA protection. There are state window tinting laws but you are still able to add protection without adding tint. Clear or transparent window films block out almost 99.9% of UVB and UVA rays without affecting visibility.

Residential and Commercial
Just as long time drivers present more skin damage, indoor workers situated near windows have significantly more sagging, wrinkled and rough textured skin on the sides of their bodies closest to the window. Residential and commercial window films can also block up to 99.9% of UVA and UVB rays, preventing sun exposure, sunburns, accelerated skin aging and an increased risk of skin cancer. Residential and commercial films, available in varied tints, can also cut down on sun glare by more than half. They offer an affordable and effective option for retrofitting windows for sun protection in both homes and businesses.
