Think You’re Safe From UV Light Indoors? Think again…

For forty years, Solar-X of Sarasota has been installing window film for clients whose main concern is protecting their drapes, carpets, and furnishings from sun fading. Every one of those clients knows that the single strongest source of fading is ultraviolet light; yet it is truly surprising how few make the connection between ultraviolet light, and the fact that – even indoors – they are subject to premature aging of skin and skin cancer, as well eye damage. Every hour that your windows admit visible light (daylight), they are admitting invisible light (ultraviolet). If it can damage your furnishings, it can surely damage your skin and eyes – even indoors!

As thousands of Baby Boomers move to Florida and settle into the “retirement” lifestyle, they would be  well advised to consider an application of SolarGard® sun control film for their home windows. SolarGard® films block 99% of the harmful ultraviolet rays that otherwise pass right through glass. For that reason, SolarGard® window films are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation; and many dermatologists recommend window film to their clients. Window films don’t need to be “dark” to block all the UV, so you can fill your home with beautiful, natural daylight and still protect your skin and your eyes from cataracts and the damage that comes from long term exposure to ultraviolet light. Many of today’s window films are virtually undetectable while still reducing substantial amounts of heat and glare; so you will be creating a more comfortable interior environment, without compromising your views or interior light levels.

SolarGard® window films come in many different densities and appearances to suit individual tastes. Installation is quick and very affordable, so contact Solar-X of Sarasota today, and let us protect both you and your home from damaging ultraviolet light. Our experienced installation craftsmen will install your window film with attention to detail and the pride that comes from being “the area’s premier window film contractor since 1973.” Solar-X of Sarasota is rated “A+” by the Better Business Bureau.

Save Your Hide With SPF 285+ Window Films | Window Tinting

Many people know that May is “Skin Cancer Awareness Month,” but far too few people do anything substantive about it.  We all know we should protect our skin when we go to the beach for three or four hours in the direct sun, but what about the rest of the day? Don’t think you are safe from harmful ultraviolet light when you are in your home or your car…

UVA light causes skin to wrinkle and age. UVB causes sunburn and premature aging. Both have been linked to skin cancer. Glass may give you some protection from UVB, but not from UVA; and to be safe you need protection from both.

SolarGard® and Panorama® window films offer broad spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB light with an SPF of greater than 285! That’s why they are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, and an ever larger number of dermatologists. They protect you and your family from the harmful effects of ultraviolet. These high quality window films also protect your furnishings, carpets, flooring and draperies from UV fading. Since they stop up to 82% of the sun’s heat, they can keep the inside of your home cooler and more comfortable as well, and can reduce your electric bills by as much as 30%. How can you go wrong with all those benefits in one product?

Facility Managers Work Toward Sustainability | Commercial Window Film and Tinting

A Leading Source Of Greenhouse Gas Emissions…

Commercial buildings are one of the most significant consumers of energy, and produce 39% of total CO2 emissions. That’s why the vast majority of facility managers are striving towards making their buildings more sustainable. Solar-X of Sarasota is here to help; with quality SolarGard® and Panorama® window films that can assist in achieving that goal. Here’s why:

Windows in an office building are responsible for most of the environmental woes within that structure. Unchecked heat intrusion makes the areas near the windows uninhabitable for just about anyone working near them. “Hot spots” and unstable temperature conditions make the interior environment miserable. One side of the building feels like a meat locker, the other side feels like an oven. Window film can stabilize those temperatures, and keep comfort demands more manageable by stopping up to 82% of the sun’s heat – balancing heat loads and reducing the peak energy usage that costs so much.

Harmful UV rays are another source of worry. Protecting office workers from the harmful effects of ultraviolet can reduce incidences of skin cancer, and harmful effects on the eyes. SolarGard® and Panorama® films stop 99% of the ultraviolet with an SPF factor of better than 285! And the reduction in glare makes it so much easier to see computer screens that productivity is actually increased! For those with a low tolerance for sunlight and UV, window film represents the perfect protection. In fact, many of our films are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.

Physical safety of building occupants can be just as important to facility managers as their comfort. In today’s uncertain world you never know when or where someone may commit the next act of violence. Armorcoat™ Safety and Security Window Films retain glass fragments, and hold them in place after impact, explosion, or the high winds associated with violent storms; protecting against cutting and piercing injuries that are part of these events. And because Armorcoat™ is available in “sun control” densities, the use of these superb products can be easily interfaced with any planned energy saving measures.

Immediate energy savings. Increased comfort. Reduced carbon footprint. UV protection. Personal Safety. All these features rolled into one product that can easily be installed; quickly and with little or no disruption in office routine. These products qualify for LEED credits is six different categories! And Solar-X can help you save more with utlility rebates and incentives!

Solar-X of Sarasota can assist your planning with building models and technical services that will accurately pinpoint savings and projected ROI’s. We can help you choose the most efficient products in order to achieve those goals. Contact Solar-X today for a thorough, professional consultation and let us assist you in gathering the information you need to implement your energy saving plans. Whether your facility is located in Bradenton, Sarasota, Venice, or you need our contracting services statewide, we’re here to help!
