At least 50% of the sun’s UV rays can pass through residential, commercial, and automobile windows, penetrating deep into skin, causing DNA damage that can accelerate skin aging (wrinkles, fine lines, etc.) and lead to skin cancer. In addition to skin damage, UV rays can also severely damage eyes and vision. Long term UVA exposure can lead to macular degeneration, a leading cause of vision loss for older Americans and UVB rays have been directly linked to cataracts, the clouding of the eye’s natural lens (the focusing mechanism) which leads to a decrease in vision. In addition to these damaging eye conditions, UV rays can also cause eyelid and conjunctival cancers, intraocular and conjunctival melanomas, and benign growths on the conjunctiva.
Workers stationed near windows (in commercial buildings and drivers) experience significantly more wrinkled, rough-textured, and sagging skin on the sides of their bodies closest to the window. Residential and commercial window films increase health and safety for your family, employees, clients, furnishings, and merchandise by offering a layer of protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Residential and commercial window films also cut down on glare by more than half and offer an effective and affordable option for retrofitting rather than replacing existing windows. Automobile windshields are partially treated against UVA rays, but do not provide full protection for all passengers and darker, untreated glass doesn’t necessarily equate to UV protection.
