UV Protection for your building
Protect people and furnishings from harmful UVA Rays.
There’s something about sunlight that puts everyone in a better, more productive frame of mind.
Sunlight streaming through office windows brightens rooms and floor space as well employee dispositions. But there’s a dark side to all that office sunlight: the sun’s UV rays can also damage skin and building assets if they’re not controlled.
UV rays can penetrate windows in commercial buildings, homes and automobiles, exposing occupants and interior furnishings to an invisible danger. The sun’s ultraviolet rays are also the leading cause of fading in interiors such as furniture, floorings, wall coverings, artwork and photographs. Retail stores are especially prone to damage from UV rays, as merchandise in windows is more susceptible to damage and fading.
UVA rays are also linked to skin cancer. This exposure is cumulative, so the total damage an occupant receives is directly related to how often they’re exposed to UV rays.
LLumar solar control window film is one of the easiest ways to mitigate UV damage.
It can block more than 99% of harmful UV Rays while offering unobstructed views, allowing natural daylight inside. Therefore, LLumar film helps defend against the dangers of UV induced skin diseases and photosensitivity.
Window films also reduce solar heat gain, which may lower cooling costs. Newer low-e window films offer year-round HVAC savings by helping keep radiant heat inside in the winter and outside in the summer.
Window film is recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as part of a comprehensive skin care program.
UV Controlling Window Film vs. Alternatives
Compared to alternative investments that reduce ultraviolet (UV) exposure such as curtains, blinds and awnings, our UV films do not create a dark environment or block the view of the outside world.
LLumar solar control window film is available in a variety of shades and reflectivity, allowing building occupants to enjoy natural light without unwanted UV, heat and glare. Many architects specify solar control window film to increase daylighting.
Some replacement windows have special coatings for UV protection, but total replacement for a commercial building is often cost prohibitive. LLumar solar control window films are approximately 80-90 percent less expensive to install than replacement windows and the installation process is less intrusive.
As one of the world’s leading brands of architectural window film, LLumar has been enhancing iconic, well-known building around the world for decades — with proven results.
