May Is “Ultraviolet Awareness Month” | Window Tinting

Sometimes Painful. Potentially Fatal. Never Underestimate UV ‘s Dangers!

May is “Ultraviolet Awareness Month;” and as residents of the “Sunshine State” we would be foolish if we weren’t aware of the dangers associated with this part of the light spectrum. UVA causes premature aging and wrinkling of your skin. UVB causes sunburn and skin cancer. UVC is the most dangerous, but thankfully; is almost entirely absorbed by the ozone layer.

Ultraviolet can contribute to cataracts, Macular Degeneration, and other eyesight woes. UV destroys things through a process called “photodissociation;” which breaks down molecules in fabric and causes fading of furniture. The same process destroys tissues, causes skin cancer, and contributes to eye injuries. That’s why we wear “sun block,” sunglasses and hats when we venture outdoors for the day.

It is also why people install sun control window films such as SolarGard® and Panorama®. These quality films protect your interior furnishings, drapes, carpets and flooring, and your family by stopping 99% of the harmful UV with an SPF factor of over 285+!  What is the SPF factor of your sunscreen?

For almost 40 years, we at Solar-X of Sarasota have been talking to clients about window film’s ability to keep homes and offices cooler, make occupants more comfortable, and reduce energy consumption. But more importantly, window film can contibute to your family’s well being by protecting them from the intrusion of UV into your home. SolarGard® and Panorama® films are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation for this reason. SolarGard® is once again proud to be a sponsor of this year’s “Road To Healthy Skin Tour;” an educational and cancer screening cross-country tour coming soon to a town near you.
