Protection from the Sun - UV Window Film

Sunlight can damage fabrics and furnishings and even skin, but UV window film can guard against the sun's harmful effects.


As much as 90% of all fading is caused by solar energy, of which ultra-violet light causes 40%, visible light 25% and solar heat 25%.


UV window film slows down this effect by as much as half. In other words, it doubles the life of your fabric or furnishings.


And when it comes to people, Guys and St Thomas Hospitals in London say that 15% of the population suffers from light sensitive diseases, with more than 90% of all skin cancers caused by sun exposure. But many people do not realise they are exposed to the sun while indoors at work or at home. UV window film provides an important layer of protection against the harmful effects of the sun, inlcuding the onset of skin cancer and premature ageing.


Dermagard UV Window Film

Dermagard is a technically advanced, clear polyester window film which is applied to existing glass. It keeps out almost 99.8% of ultra-violet light, at 380nm, while allowing daylight and clear vision through the glass - making life more normal for those that suffer from light sensitive conditions, for example Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE or lupus) and Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP). Dermagard uv window film goes on working day in and day out; its scratch resistant coating ensures it is easily cleaned and needs no maintenance. Dermagard uv window film can also be applied to the family car for even more freedom, and is being installed in playgroups, schools and dermatology clinics.


For most of these sufferers, and their families, life has to be lived away from sunlight, often behind closed curtains, and venturing outdoors is only to be done
at night, or muffled in protective clothing. Now many sufferers are finding life a little brighter, as they can open curtains and enjoy the sunshine. In most instances, Dermagard uv window film can be applied within a day, to all the windows and other glass panels, without disruption or mess. It is inexpensive, and help with the cost is often available through local Social Services or supporters organisations. Your dermatology clinic should have details.
