According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, “ultraviolet rays (UVR) are sneaky. Not only can they cause skin cancer and visible signs of aging, they’re also very good at finding you. They can bounce off water, off sand, and they can penetrate glass. Which means that even if you’re inside your car or house, if you’re sitting next to a window with sunlight streaming in, you’re at risk for UV damage”.
When driving your vehicle, the light pouring in through the glass has proven to cause more damage to the drivers' skin on the driver’s side than on the non-driving side. The damage is irreversible. But, there’s good news! Over the years, the window film industry has proven to be extremely effective not only in the automotive world but in the residential and commercial realms as well!
When window film is applied to your vehicle it can protect you, your loved ones and your vehicle's interior by blocking 99.9% of UVB and UVA rays without reducing visibility. Window films keep the inside of your vehicle cooler and reduce energy costs, all while protecting the interior from fading and cracking and your skin from becoming damaged.
Many people take necessary precautions to protect themselves outside when being exposed to the sun’s harmful rays, but most fail to realize that such precautions also need to be taken while indoors. Just because walls and windows surround you does not mean that you are receiving the protection you need. The sun’s rays still enter the home and when one is exposed, skin damage and skin cancer are still a possibility. At least 50% of UVA rays can pass through glass and into your home; about 85% of melanomas and 90% of non-melanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to UV radiation.
Businesses are taking that next step to protect their commercial enterprises. The sun’s rays can damage office interiors and can create unwanted glare, increase heat and damage the fragile skin of employees and customers. You can now receive protection from daily UV exposure that can cause skin-aging, cancer, and sunburn, all of which can occur from brief encounters with the sun’s rays while in the office. These special films can also add privacy and reduce the chances of break-ins.
Here is just a small list of what skincancer.org mentions about the types of protection received from window film...
Tinting your windows in the fall and winter months may seem like a waste of time. The Tint Shop is here to tell you, that couldn't be further from the truth. Even with the colder months steadily approaching, the sun in Arkansas is still shining bright. We will discuss some major benefits to having window film applied even in the colder months of the year.
The colder months in NE Arkansas brings colder air but definitely not less sunshine. A lot of the sun's heat is reduced is the winter because of the cold air. Interestingly, the ultra-violet rays that fade upholstery and cause sunburn and skin cancer are actually amplified 85-90% when there is snow on the ground because the rays reflect off of the snow (SSA). Most window films will reduce up to 99.9% of UV rays. This will help protect your employees, loved ones, and personal possessions.
Glare can be reduced significantly with window film. Think of how the light coming through the windows at your office reflecting onto your computer screen. That annoyance could be reduced by installing window film to create a more comfortable work-space for employees. This in turn will benefit the business by increasing productivity. When you think of window tinting you probably think of heat reduction, but it can also retain heat.
When the heat hits your window from outside, the heat travels through the glass and transfers to the air and other objects that may be in contact with the window. This process is called conduction. In the colder months the process of convection is more of our concern. When you are heating your office or home, the heat is looking for the cold spot in the room to travel to. When the heated air hits the interior surface of the glass the air is cooled, becomes denser, and drops to the floor. This air rush is often perceived as a cold draft, causing the thermostat to be adjusted up. Unfortunately, each 1-degree increase in the thermostat setting increases energy use by 2%. Applying window film can help regulate the temperature of the glass. With window film on the glass acting as an insulator, the heated air no longer recognizes the window as the cold spot. Climate control is finally achieved.
With today's advancements of technologies in window film coupled with our trained and experienced technicians, you can be assured The Tint Shop will help select the right product for your home, office, or vehicle. No matter the season, there is a reason to benefit from tinting your windows.
The Most Frequently Asked Window Film Question for home and office.
Is there a window film that will allow me to see out but does not allow people to see in, especially for privacy at night?
The answer is always the same, unfortunately no window film offers complete privacy at night while allowing an exterior view. The only films that will allow privacy at night are decorative films, but the drawback is you can’t see out either. Highly reflective films make it difficult during the day for others to see inside but the reverse is true at night. During the day light reflecting from outside keeps people from looking in. After the sun goes down the main light source is coming from the home’s interior, allowing others to see in and offering little privacy at night.
To avoid the interior reflectivity in the evening, dual reflective films offer the perfect solution with minor interior reflectivity and higher reflectivity on the exterior, permitting you to enjoy the view out your window.
