Only 43% of Americans know that window film can reduce the penetration of harmful Ultraviolet (UV) rays, according to results of a survey released by the International Window Film Association earlier this year. So just imagine how many of your customers or potential customers are unaware of that benefit.
When solar radiation passes through a clear glass window, occupants are exposed to harmful UV radiation. Studies have shown that elongated UV exposure causes skin-related issues such as premature aging, and potentially skin cancer. Many people take precautions when in outdoor direct sunlight or when in their cars, but they often forget to take steps to protect themselves when inside a home or office.
Sunscape Window Films filter out a high level of damaging UV rays. Our films have been tested and NFRC certified to offer a UV rejection rate that meets or exceeds 99% on clear 1/8” glass.
Our highest UV rejecting film series is the Starlite series, producing UV rejection between 99.6% and 99.9%. However, if higher light transmission is a significant factor, consider our MAC and Purelite series with UV rejection between 99.4%-99.9%. Advanced chemical technology enables us to offer very light films that maintain an excellent UV rejection.
While UV exposure is a major contributor to skin-related issues, there are other health benefits to window film including the reduction of eyestrain by reducing the glare. In addition, also remember to point out that UV rays are the single largest contributing solar performance factor with regard to fading of interior furnishings, fabrics, and flooring.
There are plenty of benefits window film has to offer. Let’s work together to ensure we’re increasing awareness and informing customers of ALL the benefits they will receive from their Sunscape Window Film.
