Fade / UV Protection
Exposure to direct sunlight can cause many coloured or painted materials to fade. Damage due to fading is caused by UV light, visible light, heat (including infra-red light), artificial lighting indoors, humidity, and poor dye anchorage – but the first three account for 90% of fading. Ultraviolet, visible light and heat all pass through ordinary glass and can cause damage to goods in the home, office, shop window, or museum.
Our fade protection window films are specially designed to filter out at least 99% of harmful UV and reject infra-red heat but still leave a pleasantly lit living or display environment. Whilst no film can completely eliminate the effects of fading due to the solar spectrum, over 80% of UV, infrared, and visible light can be rejected with vast range of fade protection films.
The range includes films which are ultra clear (once installed, the film is virtually undetectable), tinted, or reflective to offer a choice of fade protection performance and visual characteristics.
