The sun offers many benefits, such as increased productivity and reduced reliance on electric lighting; but the sun’s UV rays can also damage skin and building assets if they’re not controlled.
UV rays can penetrate windows in commercial buildings, homes and automobiles, exposing occupants and interior furnishings to an invisible danger. UV rays can fade furniture, wall coverings, artwork, fabric, flooring and window merchandise displays. UVA rays are also linked to skin cancer. This exposure is cumulative, so the total damage an occupant receives is directly related to how often they’re exposed to UV rays.
LLumar solar control window film is one of the easiest ways to mitigate UV damage. It can block more than 99% of harmful UV Rays while offering unobstructed views, allowing natural daylight inside. Window films also reduce solar heat gain, which may lower cooling costs. Newer low-e window films offer year-round HVAC (Heating-Venting-Air Conditioning) savings by helping keep radiant heat inside in the winter and outside in the summer. Window film is recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation in the USA as part of a comprehensive skin care program.
