I just moved a chair to sweep the floor and was dismayed at the damage to our beautiful flooring. The window is screened by a large tree so never gets direct sunlight but just look at the bleaching from reflected UV rays in just 3 years
Imagine the damage to my skin if my desk were had been here instead!
This is a really important issue for anyone sitting in direct sunlight that comes through a window.
Regular glass blocks almost all UVB rays but allows UVA to come through.
Both UVA and UVB rays are harmful. Remember:
UVB is the main sunburn ray, it causes skin cancer and wrinkles
UVA penetrates the skin more deeply than UVB , it causes skin cancer and wrinkles
Tinting – Adding sheets of UV blocking film to windows, or when replacing old window choosing glass that includes technology to block UV rays can:
1) Help to lower your cooling costs
2) Extend the life of your furnishing.
3) Save your skin
