UV blocking window film is one of our most popular films. So, as one of the countries biggest suppliers and installers of UV-blocking window film, you can imagine we get quite a few questions on the topic. This is fine by us because we love interacting with our clients to answer these questions since it means we can help them find exactly the film they need. Below are a few of the most common questions we get on these films and our simple explanations.
Does UV-Blocking film block out all sunlight?
UV Window film is an amazing technology that blocks almost all of the sun’s harmful rays 99.9%, to be exact. However, it doesn’t stop the harmless visible light from the sun from getting through windows. Depending on the transmissivity of the film, it will let in as much or little visible light as you want for your San Antonio space.
Does UV-blocking window film stop hardwood floors from fading?
Yes, UV blocking window film is likely the very best way to stop your floors from noticeably fading. This amazing technology significantly reduces hardwood fading over time. However, given enough time, there will be slight changes in the color of your floors from natural aging. However, the amount of fading from the sun coming through windows treated with UV films is so small it won’t be very noticeable for a very long time.
Will UV Blocking window film darken my windows?
No, today’s UV-blocking window tints are not dark like the films that came before them. They are wonderfully clear. Not only do they not darken windows, but many former clients of ours also say they actually improve views from the inside looking out and give their windows a more modern attractive appearance from the outside.
Does UV-Blocking window film really protect from cancer?
Yes, studies have shown that limiting your exposure to UV radiation does contribute to lower risks of some cancers. So window film, which blocks almost all of the harmful UV rays that bombard your skin through windows each day, is likely one of the most powerful ways to reduce the risks of sun-related diseases such as cataracts and melanoma. In fact, Uv-blocking window film even had the Skin Cancer Foundation’s seal of recommendation.
