We all consider obvious issues, such as accidents but driving also holds a less apparent danger, exposure to the sun.
Over 2 million people in the UK drive for a living, 15 million drive to work and back every day, many of us regularly use a car. Abundant legislation exists to protect us on the roads, although not from UV rays.
Most manufacturers build in a degree of protection to the windscreen, which could still be better and there is less for side windows. Glass does restrict UVB rays to an extent but not the higher penetrating UVA.
Skin Safety & More
Protecting yourself from a damaging, possibly deadly threat is the core reason for adding UV screening window film to car windows. A quick and harmless process, which can hold a range of further benefits:
- Reduced, stable temperature and less reliance on air conditioning.
- Much less sun damage to internal fabrics, fittings, or woodwork.
- Protection from shattered window glass, held in place by the film.
- All vehicle occupants feel more comfortable during their journey.
Advantages depend on your choice of filter, from multi-layer nanotechnology, to straightforward UV film, which blocks almost all rays. Most garages fit the film, you can do so yourself, or book a mobile service.
Adding To Road Safety
There are secondary advantages of a cool, stable driving environment, better concentration, less tiredness, which add to the progress we see below:
The fall in road deaths is welcome, largely driven by technology. Adding low cost technology to your vehicle enhances this and gives safety from less obvious danger on the roads, yet skin cancer kills more people than drunk driving.
You and your passengers of all ages will be protected from long term risk. As with driver safety, skin cancer treatment has advanced in recent years but all the better if you can avoid issues which require this.
