UV Protection Window Film
Over time, the sunlight entering your windows discolors materials within your home or commercial space, and the bleaching process may appear gradual until you shift your rug around and see a distinct outline where the rug once sat. Refinishing your floors and replacing your curtains and upholstery every few years is annoying and costly, but sun damage can also occur to items that can’t be restored like family keepsakes and original artwork.
UV Protection Window Films dramatically slow the fading process by filtering out the sun’s damaging rays. As a general rule of thumb, ultraviolet (UV) rays accounts for approximately 40% of the fading, visible light is responsible for about 25%, and heat catalyzes about another 25%. The remaining 10% of fading that occurs can be attributed to humidity, pollutants, interior lights, dye stability, and other factors. By filtering out a portion of these damaging elements, window film can slow the discoloration process of your floors, furniture, upholstery, and precious heirlooms by up to 2 to 5 times their usual rate of fading.
