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.

Window Film Facts vs. Fiction | Sarasota Window Tinting

Window Film dealer sarasota FloridaWindow film is often described as a product that has “very low customer awareness;”  but “very high customer acceptance” once its properties are explained. And the accuracy of that statement is “spot on!” Many people have very little awareness of all the good things that window tinting can do for you, your home or your office environment; and oftentimes what little they do know (or think they know) is way off the mark. If you think that all window film is “too shiny,” “too dark,” “not natural-looking,” or “turns purple;” then you’ve got some catching up to do! The list of window film’s positive properties is long indeed, but just those listed below make these superior products worthy of consideration:

Reduces heat and glare. Window film stops up to 82% of the sun’s heat and eye-watering glare from coming through your windows, while simultaneously filling your rooms with pleasing, natural daylight. Provides an increase in comfort as soon as its installed! And today’s films are lighter (in some cases, virtually clear), less reflective, and provide a much more natural view!

Reduces Ultraviolet light. Window film stops 99%+ of the harmful UV rays that cause fading of drapes, carpeting, furnishings and artwork  – not to mention premature skin aging and skin cancer.  In fact, many of our products are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation!

Makes glass safer. Window film reduces the possibility of cutting and piercing injuries if glass is broken; and safety films such as SolarGard® “Armorcoat®” are proven to help hold glass in place under extreme circumstances such as violent weather or blasts. It also acts as a very strong deterrent to home invasion or “smash and grab” burglary by making it extremely difficult to gain entry.

Increases comfort. By eliminating “hot spots” near windows, and stabilizing temperatures, window film can create a uniform “comfort condition” throughout your entire home or office.

Saves Energy. And saving energy saves money! In today’s economy, that means something. Window films can save as much as 30% off your energy bill! Sort of brings a whole new meaning to “being cool”. . .

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?
