Living a healthy lifestyle is something more and more people are advocating for these days. In a day and age when we know more about what harms our mind and bodies, it is easier than ever to avoid things that lower our life expectancy and put us at risk. We know for instance that eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables leads to good heart health. We understand more than ever the danger of smoking or drinking and driving. And we now realize that the rays of the sun, although healthy in some ways, are severely detrimental in others. In response to such understandings, companies have evolved to offer consumers products that promote healthy living. One such product is window film. In today’s modern architectural landscape, window films are more powerful than ever at blocking the sun and keeping your family safe from the harmful effects of the sun. Did you know that window film blocks up to 99% of the harmful UVA and UVB rays? In fact, it is rated an SPF 1000–something you want protecting the skin of those you love the most. It is such a powerful asset to living a healthy life that Window films have been given Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation. This is what they had to say in a recent article:
“While it’s understood that taking sun safety precautions is important outside, few people realize they can sustain sun damage indoors, too. While both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation from the sun can harm the skin and lead to skin cancers, UVB is effectively blocked by glass. However, at least 50 percent of UVA rays can pass through windows. Window film is an increasingly effective solution, offering substantial indoor protection by blocking up to 99.9 percent of UVA radiation. Although they are less intense than UVB, UVA rays are 30 to 50 times more prevalent and are present with relatively equal intensity during all daylight hours throughout the year. Window film can help prevent harmful UVA rays from damaging your skin.”
