How Can The Sun Reach Me Through my Car Windows?
The burning ball of fire in the sky affects you more than you might think. It keeps us itty-bitty humans toasty and allows our world to flourish, but the radiation it emits can also damage people’s sensitive skin. The Sun releases radiation that travels down to Earth in two forms: ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays. The windows on our cars cannot protect us from every harmful ray of the Sun. Typically, car windows can block UVB rays and most windshields can prevent UVA rays from penetrating the glass; however, side windows cannot keep UVA rays from reaching human bodies and overtime human skin is damaged by exposure to the Sun. Overtime, exposure adds up and human skin can be severely damaged. Skin damage includes: wrinkles, leathering, sagging skin, brown “age” spots and skin cancer.
So How Can Window Tinting Protect Me From Harmful UV Rays?
Clear auto glass with no additional tinting or coverage keeps out 97% of harmful UVB radiation and 37% of UVA rays. Cars that have clear or tinted film on side windows thwart 99.9% of UVB radiation and 80% of UVA. Wow, what a difference, huh?
Window tinting does not obscure vision for drivers. Plus, it adds a little more privacy to your vehicle. Ultimately, window tinting helps prevent skin from being damaged by the Sun and protects drivers from any glare and or outside the car.
Every window tint is different and there are some that are more effective than others. You should know that the best window tint out there can prevent 99% of UV rays, so make sure you know what you’re getting before you get it.
What Else Can I Do to Prevent Skin Damage from the Sun?
The amount of UV radiation levels that reaches the inside of your car depends on a few things. For instance, if your car windows are open or you have the sunroof open, or top down, window tints aren’t going to be of much use. But if you live in a hot climate or are in your car frequently, you should definitely consider window tints. Also, never forget to wear sunscreen. High levels of UV radiation can seriously damage your skin and affect your health. It’s always better to be safe than sorry—no excuses!
