UV radiation is everywhere. On your drive to work, on your walk to the park, and at the pool, radiation from the sun beats down on us and damages skin. When relaxing at home with your family, the last thing you want is to worry about UV rays flying through your exposed windows and onto your skin. At John Barnes Window Tinting, we have a solution that can help you enjoy your view and protect your family.
UV Radiation and Window Film
Window tinting is getting more and more exposure as one of the best ways to protect from the harmful radiation that comes from the sun. Window film can block up to 99% of UVA radiation through a one-day install on smaller properties. Although sunscreen is still essential when going out, a bit of window tinting can go a long way to preventing damage from sunlight through windows.
The Skin Cancer Foundation actually distributes quite a bit of informational material on how window film can help protect families from UV radiation. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, not only does window tinting prevent sunburns and the rapid increase in skin cancer risk, but it can also help people with “diseases involving dangerous photosensitivity, such as xeroderma pigmentosum and lupus.”
Window Film and More Beautiful Windows
Protecting you and your family doesn’t have to mean getting rid of your beautiful view. Window film installation at John Barnes Window Tinting comes in a variety of strengths and colors. The film does block out UVA radiation, but it doesn’t block your view. In fact, because tinting reduces the glare that comes through, views can actually be improved.
Since not all homes are alike, we also provide protective film in an array of colors. Different colors allow us to develop an aesthetically aligned service that can protect the inside of a home while improving the outside of it.
