UV Films have one very important feature - the UV (Ultraviolet) layer is especially effective. The films that are dedicated as UV control will reduce the amount of invisible and damaging UV light by more than 99.5%. This does not mean that they will stop all aspects of fading as fade is also attributable to visible light and heat. However, stopping the invisible UV will substantially extend the colour and longevity of curtains, soft furnishings, flooring, pictures and antiques.
The are 2 types of UV Control Films:
Clear Film - The film is optically clear and invisible to all but the most close inspection.
Tinted UV Films - A tinted UV film will both reduce the invisible UV and (depending on film selection) an additional degree of fading caused by visible light and heat. Also, the degree of tint will have a direct effect on glare control.
