Whether you’re driving, at home gazing out at your garden, or sitting by a window at work, you actually may be suffering continual skin damage. That is why the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends window films.

What does “sun exposure” mean to you? Most likely you’re imagining a day at the beach or being outside for an extended period of time, but the truth is millions of Canadians are getting a large dose of sun exposure in two places they least expect it- in their homes and vehicles.
Whether your favourite chair is next to a nice big window, or you have to commute to work in your car, if you are unprotected, you’re putting yourself at risk for irreversible skin damage. It’s recommended that you take protective measures like full-coverage clothing, applying sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher, and donning a hat and sunglasses while driving-especially if you drive a convertible.
Those solutions are fine in theory, but it’s easy to forget sunscreen and a long sleeve shirt might be simply too hot to bear. So, if you’re frequently near a window at home, in your car or even at work, the single best safeguard against UV damage is transparent window film, or “window tint”. Protective window film is treated to screen out damaging UVA and UVB rays, and can be applied to your home, commercial or vehicle windows.
Preventing Car Trouble
One of the main selling features of a vehicle is a sunroof, and number of windows. Unfortunately, the laminated windshield is the only window that comes with both UVB and UVA protection. The side and rear windows, even if the glass is tinted darker, provide almost no UV protection.
Advanced window tint is rated to block up to 99.9% of UV rays, and can go a long way to prevent skin damage to the driver and the occupants. Each province has different regulations around how dark a tint is allowed and how many windows it can be applied to, but even clear UV rated window tint can almost eliminate skin damage from the sun.
