Read on to learn why they’re a must-have for your home.

The Benefits of UV-Blocking Window Films

The sun’s UV rays can cause irreparable damage to your home, skin, and more. By installing window films, you can prevent this damage from occurring and protect your family at the same time. You can still enjoy the sun without the harmful UV rays!

Here are the top reasons you should consider UV-blocking window films:

1. Prevent Skin Cancer

Throughout the day, we’re exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Excessive and cumulative exposure to UV radiation causes sun-related eye disorders, premature skin aging, skin damage, and skin cancers.

Studies have shown that using films on your windows can limit UV transmission, reducing the likelihood of skin cancer.

UV rays bounce off sand and water, and penetrate glass. That means that even when you’re inside, you’re risking UV damage.

Back in the 1990s, researchers found that left-hand drivers had more skin damage on the left side of their bodies. The opposite was found for right-hand drivers. This was due to the UV rays constantly streaming through their windows.

Now, UV protective film is available indoors. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends the use of window film to prevent skin cancer, and found that the UV film blocks out 99.9% of UV radiation.

 

2. Stop Sun Fading

If you take a good look at your couch or rug, you may notice signs of fading, particularly where the sun hits them every day. From artwork to your coffee table, all furniture can be damaged by the sun.

UVB and UVA rays are damaging to the art, flooring, and furnishings in your home. Just as the sun damages your skin, it also damages your furniture, making it look faded and washed out.

By choosing a good-quality window film, you can protect your furnishings from this exposure, ensuring that they remain in great condition throughout the years.

 

3. Block Heat

UV-blocking technology allows you to enjoy the sun while blocking some of the heat. This means that you won’t need to use air conditioning as often or as high during the summer. And that means cheaper utility bills.

Interestingly, these films can also help you reduce heating costs in winter, by reflecting interior heat back into your home. Now that’s a win/win.

 

4. Increased Privacy

There are so many other decorative window film options available. The FASARAâ„¢ series offers options in etched, cut, sandblasted, and textured glass at just a smidgen of the cost of the real sandblasted and patterned glass. You’ll also find other options in Prism and Dot Glass Finishes. Let your imagination get away from you! Where could you add some style and elegance as well as UV ray protection in your home?
