Protect Your Skin With Window Film

Facts about Skin Protection and Window Film

 
Window films have an SPF of 285 or more, making them an ideal solution for protecting your skin.
When applied to your car, home or office, they block more than 99% of the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays.

Type of UV Radiation Effects
UVA Skin aging, eye damage, linked to skin cancer
UVB Sunburn, premature skin aging, eye damage, linked to skin cancer
UVC Most destructive but mostly stopped by the ozone layer
Effects of direct sunlight

Solar control window film is ideal if you want to protect your skin from the daily onslaught of sunlight. The ultraviolet radiation in sunlight has many negative effects on skin including:

  • Causes 90% of all premature skin aging and wrinkles
  • Destroys vitamin A in the skin, which contributes to cell damage
  • Damages collagen, the structural protein that keeps skin cells firm, causing wrinkles and sagging
  • UV is increasingly being linked to skin cancer
UV radiation and photosensitive conditions

Window film also reduces the harmful effects of sunlight if you suffer from a photosensitive condition. Dozens of these conditions have been identified including:

  • Actinic Prurigo
  • Bloom syndrome
  • Dermatomyostis
  • Discoid Lupus Erythematosus
  • Dubowitz Syndrome
  • Ichthyosis (Trichothiodystrophy)
  • Photosensitive Erythema Multiforme
  • Polymorphous Light Eruption
  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
  • Three M Syndrome

 
Solar control window film is often prescribed for people who cannot tolerate sunlight.
