Effects of direct sunlight

Solar control window film is ideal if you want to protect your skin from the daily onslaught of sunlight. The ultraviolet radiation in sunlight has many negative effects on skin including:


• Causes 90% of all premature skin aging and wrinkles

• Destroys vitamin A in the skin, which contributes to cell damage

• Damages collagen, the structural protein that keeps skin cells firm, causing wrinkles and sagging

• UV is increasingly being linked to skin cancer

Solar Gard window film also reduces the harmful effects of sunlight if you suffer from a photosensitive condition. Dozens of these conditions have been identified including:

UV Radiation and Photosensetive Conditions

• Actinic Prurigo

• Bloom Syndrome

• Discoid Lupus Erythematosus

• Dubowitz Syndrome

• Ichthyosis (Trichothiodystrophy)

Solar control window film is often prescribed for people who cannot tolerate sunlight.
