UV Protection

Commercial UV Window Protection Film in Pompano Beach, Florida

Reduce Damage Caused by the Sun

UV window film creates a barrier in between a building's occupants and interior furnishings and harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Ultraviolet A rays (UVA) in particular are responsible for causing extensive damage—including causing skin cancer and fading of furniture and flooring. Untreated glass offers little to no protection from the sun’s harmful rays, but UV window films protect tenants and furnishings for a fraction of the cost of other alternatives.

Vista UV Window Protection Film in Pompano Beach, used exclusively by Southern Glass Protection, provides the highest level of rejection by blocking up to 99.9% of harmful UVA and UVB rays. This helps to protect against the dangers of extended UV exposure such as skin diseases, premature aging, and photosensitivity.

Solar ultraviolet rays are also the leading cause of interior furnishing fading, including flooring, wall coverings, artwork, photographs, furniture, and more. Retail stores can protect their merchandise in from damage and fading from window tinting.

UV Window Protection Film in Pompano Beach vs. Alternatives

There are lower cost alternatives to reduce UV exposure such as curtains, blinds, and awnings, but these investments are less than ideal, as they create a dark environment and reduce building occupants’ view of the outside. Window film, on the other hand, is available in a wide range of shades and reflectivity, so that occupants can enjoy natural light while still blocking out harmful UV rays, heat and glare.

Architects often specify UV window protection film in Pompano Beach and other southern cities in order to counteract the negative effects of daylighting, or the practice of positioning windows so that natural light during the day provides effective internal lighting, reducing the need for artificial light.

Replacement windows are available with special coatings for UV protection, but this is a cost-prohibitive option for many commercial buildings. Vista Window Film installation is up to 80–90% less expensive than replacement windows, and installation of window tinting is much less intrusive and disruptive than replacement windows.
