Have you ever experienced your favourite piece of furniture fading even though you’ve tried to protect it from sitting in direct sunlight? Your flooring, fabrics, art, and furnishings are all vulnerable to damage by UV rays, even if you’ve treated them with a protective spray coating. Fading, discolouration, and fabric damage are the downsides of the sunlight that enters our homes. Through photo-degradation, UVA, UVB, heat/infrared radiation, and visible light combine to negatively impact furnishings and put your skin at a higher risk of cancer.
Modern day films are acknowledged by the cancer society to greatly reduce the effects of harmful UV rays inside the home, along with being one of the best ways to deal with sun and light issues when it comes to protecting your largest investment – your home.
Traditionally, homeowners have invested in expensive drapes or blinds, and resort to closing them to block the sun. However, traditional window coverings have some downsides. They don’t prevent heat from pouring into the building through the windows, so your house still get uncomfortably hot. Window coverings also fade and require regular replacement, and finally they completely block out the benefits of natural light and completely obstruct your views.
Advanced window films are acknowledged by the cancer society to greatly reduce the effects of harmful UV rays inside the home, along with being one of the best ways to deal with sun and light issues when it comes to protecting your largest investment- your home. Window film offers a long-lasting solution that helps fabrics, wood, carpets and leather maintain their quality year-round. Replacing furnishings and carpet every few years is costly; window film has an extremely long life span, making it very cost effective and will not require re-application. Advanced window films allow light to come through, which results in a clear, crisp, unobstructed view while still protecting everything inside your home from fading.
Like a good pair of sunglasses, window film reduces the glare and eyestrain while enhancing unobstructed views. In addition, window films can significantly reduce heat gain and save on year round energy bills while allowing the natural beauty of your existing windows or doors to shine.
