Window film for UV protection
Hospital window film can offer a wide variety of benefits to a hospital. We’ve talked extensively on this blog about reducing a hospital’s heating and cooling costs, which can work out to a substantial money savings over the years. This can be achieved with the installation of energy efficiency window film, a product that blocks heat gain in summer and heat loss in winter.
But there are a couple of other benefits that this very same type of hospital window film can provide. One important benefit is UV protection. The sun’s UVA and UVB rays are the cause of fading. If your hospital lobby or other areas have artwork and other expensive furnishings, you want to protect them and keep them looking new as long as possible, to save on the expense of replacement.
Here at Scottish Window Tinting, we are proud to offer UV protection window film from Llumar, an industry leader. Not just for protecting furnishings, LLumar UV window film is designed to protect against harmful ultraviolet rays without blocking the view. This top-quality product will block over 99 percent of both UVA and UVB rays.
For patients with sun sensitivities, blocking the UV spectrum is important to their health. Llumar hospital window film carries the Skin Cancer Seal of Recommendation, awarded strictly to products that offer protection against skin cancer. You can think of UV protection hospital window film as a sunscreen for your entire facility.
Another important benefit that hospital window film can provide is glare protection. The glare coming in hospital windows from the sun can make it difficult to read any kind of electronic device or screen. And these days, more and more things are done electronically. Glare makes it difficult for patients to watch their TVs and office personnel to work on their computers. Natural light through the windows is important to health. That’s been proven many times. But at the same time, glare causes eyestrain and headaches, not to mention frustration. For patients, the only solution has been to close the curtains and darken the room, which can create a bit of a gloomy atmosphere.
With UV protection and glare reduction hospital window film, this problem is solved. The Llumar window film cuts glare by 87 percent, allowing patients to watch their televisions or work on their tablets or laptops, while enjoying the natural sunlight.
