You have learned, on this web site, about the many benefits of having
window film installed in your home for your home's sake, like
reducing heat and glare and savings on energy consumption, fade
reduction for your fabrics, flooring and furniture. But did you know
that window film can also help provide added benefits for you and
your skin? What about the sun's UV Radiation?
It's a fact that without radiation from the sun, life on the Earth would
cease to exist. Sunshine is essential to plant and animal life, but
there are certain portions of this radiation that the human body
could use in much smaller doses. Basically ultraviolet radiation has
been divided into three groups of wavelengths, UVC, UVB and UVA rays.
All UVC and a portion of UVB rays are screened by the Earth's ozone
layer. The balance of UVB rays (the part of the UV spectrum that
causes sunburn) are screened out completely by glass. UVA is not
screened by glass and makes up over 90% of the UV radiation that
reaches the Earth's surface.
For years now, scientists & health professionals have been
warning us of the dangers of UV radiation. We have heard "before
you go out into the sun, you should apply sunscreen, wear sunglasses
and a hat (especially between the hours of 10 to 3 in the afternoon)
to reduce your risk of developing sunburn", wrinkles and premature
aging of the skin, skin cancers (Facts),
and eye damage.
VISTA® Window Films absorb 99.9% of UV "A" & UV
"B" radiation, from 320nm to 380nm, when installed on your
glass. For people who are concerned about the effects of UV Rays on
their family's skin, VISTA®
films can be of great benefit.
The UVShield technology is a part of All VISTA®
films and is recommended as a device for UV protection of the skin by
The Skin Cancer Foundation, The Melanoma Foundation, The Billy
Foundation & The XP Society. Further, our manufacturer suppliers, CP Films, and 3M Window Film
are two of ONLY three US Companies recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation.www.skincancer.org
