The sun’s ultraviolet, or UV, rays break down chemical bonds in fabrics and other materials, causing discoloration. Visible light and solar heat from the sun also accelerate fading. Certain objects are more susceptible to bleaching, while others reflect light better so they won’t fade as quickly.
Window films reduce fading by blocking up to 99.9% of UV rays and reflecting up to 78% of solar heat as well as visible light. By restricting the amount of UV rays, solar heat, and visible light that is transferred through the window, the pace of fading is greatly reduced, so your furnishings continue looking like new for years to come.
UV rays aren’t only damaging to your belongings. They’re also hazardous to your health. They cause premature aging and increase your risk for skin cancer. That’s why the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends window film for residential and commercial buildings as well as automotive tint for your vehicle.
