Window Film News 9

Professionally installed Panorama window films can be effective in blocking harmful UV rays

You may be getting serious ultraviolet exposure in the place where you should feel the safest – your home. Many people do not realize they are exposed to the sun while at work or at home because damaging UV rays penetrate glass. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, more than 1 million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed each year. Of these cases, more than 111,900 are melanoma, a cancer that claims nearly 8,000 lives annually.

Panorama blocks 99% of UV light that damages skin and causes furnishings to fade and rejects 95% of infrared heat that causes uncomfortable hot spots in homes and offices.

Once installed on a home or office, Panorama® window film provides a year-round layer of protection and doesn’t require maintenance or special cleaning techniques. Dermatologists are even writing prescriptions for Panorama window film to protect patients at risk for skin cancer or other sun-related illnesses.

Despite such high levels of protection, Panorama® window film is transparent and does not noticeably affect window views or the overall appearance of a home. At the same time, Panorama also helps protect furnishings, floor coverings and artwork from sun-related damage.

Panorama® window film carries The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation. Recommended solar Panorama window films include:
