Does Window Tint Block Uv Rays?

by Liz Seyi Digital marketing manager

One of the most common reasons for someone to buy Window Film – whether for a building or vehicle – is so that a greater level of protection can be provided against the potentially damaging effects of ultraviolet (UV) rays.


Whether it is known as window film or window tint, this product can be a highly efficient solution for filtering out UV rays when applied to glass.


However, it is important to check the specification sheet for any given window film before purchasing and having it installed for the express purpose of blocking UV rays. After all, the exact answer to the question “does window tint block UV rays?” differs from one film to the next.


Why would you wish to block UV rays anyway?


It has long been established that high levels of exposure to UV rays, whether indoors or outdoors, can have adverse implications for human health, in particular by heightening the risk of skin cancer. Such an effect can be caused by short bursts of high exposure, or instead the accumulative effects of more moderate levels of exposure over a longer period of time.


Overexposure to UV rays has also been linked to accelerated ageing of the skin and damage to the eyes. However, it should be noted that a lack of UV exposure can also have adverse consequences, due to the risk of vitamin D deficiency and associated disease.


It is therefore not desirable or advisable for anyone purchasing window film to attempt to completely eliminate exposure to UV rays.


However, it is still understandable that you may be looking for window film that can specifically filter out a large proportion of UV rays, especially if you are concerned about the rapid deterioration of interior furnishings that elevated sun exposure can also cause.
