Darrell Smith with the IWFA, International Window Film Association released a hard hitting press release on how the sun’s skin cancer causing UV rays penetrate unprotected glass. Here are some of the highlights, if you would like to read the press release in its entirety, please see the IWFA website.
Most of us know that if our skin is unprotected and we’re outside, the UV rays from the sun can cause skin cancer. However, medical research indicates that being exposed to the sun’s UV rays indoor could also lead to skin cancer, whether you’re in your car or your home.
Unprotected glass, even glass that is darkened, will allow enough damaging UV rays to pass through the glass and onto your skin. So how can you protect yourself while in your car or home? A very simple and inexpensive solution is to get window film installed on your car and home windows. A quality window film will block 99% of the sun’s skin damaging UV rays. Please look at our Home Window Film page under, “What To Look For In A Residential Window Film” to know if you’re getting a quality window film or not.
On average one person every hour dies from melanoma skin cancer, according to the Melanoma Foundation. Don’t become a statistic, get window film installed today!
