Nothing adds life to your home more than great natural light, but it’s also possible to have too much of a good thing. With natural sunlight comes unwanted heat and hotspots, which can really affect your overall comfort and make for a less inviting atmosphere. Films can reject up to 99% of solar energy – providing you greater temperature stability and comfort while reducing solar heat and bothersome glare.
Protection From Fading
Even inside the house, you and your valuables are more exposed to sun damage than you probably realize. Ultraviolet light and solar heat coming through any window can cause fading and irreparable damage to the things you value most. Everything from your expensive artwork and furnishings, to hardwood floors, carpets and curtains are at risk – and even more important, so is your skin.
Films help by filtering visible light, rejecting solar heat and blocking over 99% of harmful UV light – significantly reducing your potential for damage and protecting what you treasure most.
Clear glass used for windows in your home, office or automobile offers protection only from UVB rays, those that cause sunburn.
Unless specially coated, glass offers no protection for UVA rays, which cause both aging and skin cancer. In addition, UVA rays penetrate glass year round no matter what the season leaving you exposed, even in the winter when you are less likely to wear sunscreen.
