Solar Gard, the Southern California-based business unit of global glass pioneer, Saint-Gobain – has developed a line of window protection films with a SPF protection of 285+. As we enter Skin Cancer Awareness month and with summer quickly approaching, temperatures will be rising as will the increase in UV ray threats to people everywhere.
Solar Gard wants consumers to know there is a solution to reducing the everyday threat of harmful UV rays both in the car and at home. Solar Gard’s advanced line of window films deliver SPF protection of 285+.
For more than 30 years – the leader in patent-protected film technologies for surface protection across the automotive, residential and commercial markets – has been trusted with helping to protect people and world-famous landmarks alike. The company’s renowned technology is the base for its consumer window film, blocking 99% of UVA and UVB rays from passing through home, business and vehicle windows/doors.
“Skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer and many people don’t realize they are putting themselves at risk during normal day-to-day activities – especially while in a vehicle which can be equivalent to a day at the beach. Its common knowledge that avoiding sun exposure reduces an individual’s risk but simply being inside their home, business or vehicle may not be enough,” said Kendall Combs, global marketing director for Solar Gard. “A normal piece of glass does not contain the necessary layers of protection the skin needs from damaging UV rays. Solar Gard provides that extra layer of protection and peace of mind that you can be comfortable and safe behind your windows and doors.”
Solar Gard’s window films have been trusted to protect some of the most prominent government buildings and landmarks including the U.S. Capitol Building, Library of Congress, J. Edgar Hoover FBI Building and the U.S. Institute of Peace – effectively defending people from the elements and man-made threats. Whether it’s a national government building, a local independent business, a family home or one of the millions of cars on the road – Solar Gard solutions deliver the added protection that is critical in reducing the risk of UV exposure and increased chances of developing skin cancer.
