UV Protection: Window Tint As A Unique Safeguard

Taking care of your car’s engine with regular tune-ups and maintenance is easy to remember, but have your ever thought about taking that extra step a little bit further to your car windows? You might think window tint is just an aesthetic change, but it can be one of the most underrated ways to keeping your family safe from ultraviolet radiation. Summer is a crucial time for UV Protection, so what is the best way to safeguard ourselves?

Why Do You Need UV Protection?

According to the CDC, ultraviolet radiation (UV) is a form of non-ionizing radiation that is emitted by the sun and other artificial sources. While it can have some benefits for people, like Vitamin D creation, it can also cause health risks. Knowing more about UV radiation is the first step to protecting yourself. UV radiation can enter your system through two different classified sources: natural and artificial.

Natural Sources— Sunlight is the only source of natural UV light/radiation. Due to the earth’s structure and climate, different areas of the earth are more subjected to intense UV radiation at different times. For example, UV radiation is the strongest closest to the equator, at higher altitudes and during the summertime. UV rays from the sun can also penetrate cloud cover and bounce off natural surfaces such as water or pavement. Unfortunately, this means that direct sunlight is not required for UV exposure.

Artificial Sources— Unlike the sun, artificial sources depend on the environment you are in, and some can even be avoidable all-together such as tanning beds. Certain oral and topical medications can also make your skin more sensitive to rays.

A few other ways to receive artificial UV radiation:

  • Through certain types of lasers.
  • Some halogen, fluorescent, and incandescent lights.
  • Mercury vapor lighting (often found in stadiums and gyms).

Another channel through which we receive UV light is inside our cars. At first it doesn’t seem obvious because when you are riding in your car because you have a roof and windows that block direct sunlight. However, as we learned earlier, UV radiation can penetrate and bounce off many surfaces—including car windows. So, how do we prevent this?

Well, UV prevention for your automobile starts with quality window tinting.

Sun Safe Benefits For The Family

Window tinting takes a manufactured film adhesive and applies it to your car. It can be put on the front, side, and rear windows and is meant to last for years to come. The level of protection you receive really depends on the company and brand of window film that you invest in. Just because the tint is dark, does not mean it is effective. If you hire a trusted auto window tinting expert, then you will have nothing to worry about. All Pro window tinting blocks up to 99% of UV rays, ensuring that you and all your passengers stay safe from the sun.

A few other benefits include:

  • No more Sunburns—high quality window tinting can allow a blend of natural light in your car without the damaging effects of UV rays. Whether you’re stuck in traffic in the beating sun, or simply making a quick commute, you’ll be able to sit in your car without worrying about burning your arms, legs, or head.
  • Squint or Sunglasses—no more hastily reaching around for sunglasses to prevent a dastardly glare! Since window tint blocks reflective UV rays you can drive without having to constantly block the sun from your eyes. This also goes for nightime, tint can conveniently block bright reflective light in the darkness.
  • Keep it Cool—tinted windows also block inferred and thermal rays. These are bright lights that produce heat that can be harmful. Tint can stop your car seats from burning your legs, keeping you cool during harsh summer heat.
  • Safety & Security—in the event of a collision, shards of splintered window glass can easily become hazardous, but window tint can hold the broken shield in place. The thin layers of flexible film are firmly attached and reduce the risk shards flying everywhere.

(Be aware that most states have regulations and laws in place for window tint percentage, but again, a reliable window tinting company will adhere to all rules and regulations when it comes to tint percentage.)
