What is damage control film from Solar Gard?

Have you noticed your hardwood floors, carpets, rugs, furniture, artwork, pictures looking discolored/faded or your window sills and doors deteriorating.  This damage is caused by the continuous harsh solar rays that attacks your house or place of business.  ​

Many people think that UV rays alone are responsible for these damages because they are the most harmful solar rays for your health.  In reality UV (Ultra-Violet) rays contributes approx. 40% to the damage while, IR (Infra-Red) rays contribute 25%, visible light 25% and the remaining 10% is a combination of incandescent lighting and chemicals in the dyes and varnishes.  ​

All of Solar Gard’s window films block 99% of UV rays.  Blocking visible light is a matter of preference and Solar Gard window films will block from 95% to 28% of the visible light that enters through your glass panes, the less visible light the more damage control there is.  ​

Solar Gard’s engineers have developed some of the most advanced window films available that block a significant amount of the IR rays.  When choosing window film that best suits your expectations you will notice that Solar Gard has a large verity of technologies for each specific need.
