Solve this riddle: What’s something you can’t see, you can’t feel until a few hours later, and can cause lifelong harm? Ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

UV radiation is a form of energy emitted from the sun and other manmade sources like tanning beds. UV radiation is different than the heat you feel on a hot summer day in Wilmington, but you can certainly feel its effects later when you get a sunburn. While minimal exposure to UV rays can be beneficial, prolonged exposure can result in premature aging and even skin cancer. Luckily, products like sunscreen, sunglasses, and UV protection film can keep us safe from UV rays, indoors and outside.

UV Rays See No Boundaries

It’s common practice to apply sunscreen before a long beach day or an afternoon spent at the pool. However, we often don’t realize that UV rays can even impact us while we’re indoors; they can enter through windows disguised as beautiful natural light. Exposure to UV rays can cause hardwood floors, rugs, furniture, and more to fade over time.

If this damage can be done to furnishings, imagine what UV rays can do to your skin! While North Carolina dermatologists recommend applying sunscreen daily, you shouldn’t have to wear sunscreen on a day spent lounging inside your home. Luckily, UV protection film can keep both you and your furnishings out of harm’s way!

UV Protection Film…

Prevents Fading

You invest a lot in decorating your home, from beautiful furniture to intricate art pieces. Don’t let UV rays enter and wreak havoc on your decor! With UV protection film, you can block UV rays without eliminating natural light. In fact, UV window film rejects up to 99.9% of UV rays and 97% of infrared heat, both of which contribute to fading. Add years to the life of furnishings when you invest in UV protection film.

Protects Your Skin

Not only does this window film protect your belongings, but it also protects your skin. Its excellent UV rejecting abilities mean you’ll be safe and sound inside from damaging UV rays. In fact, the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends window film as an efficient UV protectant. Protect yourself and your family from the long-term effects of UV exposure by investing in window film.

Improves Comfort

In addition to its impeccable UV rejection, this film also rejects heat! The sun can heat up interiors on a hot day, leading to both discomfort and overworked HVAC systems. With window film, you can achieve comfortable interiors and lower energy bills without eliminating natural light from your space.

UV protection window film extends the life of furnishings, rejects heat, and shields your skin from harmful UV rays. So when you choose window film, you’re choosing both enhanced comfort and increased protection for a happier, healthier home.
