To prevent the damage caused by the sun, the IWFA recommends professionally installed window film for all automobiles. Window film filters 99 percent of the sun's UV rays, compared to untreated windows, which block only 25 percent of UV rays.
Comfort and Safety in the Car
Window film offers myriad benefits in addition to protection from damaging UV rays. Window film provides up to 55 percent rejection of solar heat, which means car air conditioners are more effective and efficient, and passengers won't feel those hot spots as the sun shines in the windows. Window film also offers improved visibility from sunlight, resulting in less eye fatigue for the driver. In addition, in the event of an accident or sudden impact, windows treated with film may offer added protection – the window film can help to hold glass shards together and keep them from flying into the vehicle.
"Automobile safety is of paramount importance, particularly during the holidays when so many people are on the road. The lives of passengers and the driver depend on it," said Darrell Smith, Executive Director of the IWFA. "Professionally installed automotive window film or 'tint' offers an additional layer of safety for those driving to their holiday celebrations by helping to protect the cars' occupants and making the vehicle more comfortable."
For more information on how professionally installed window film protects drivers and auto passengers during the holidays, and year-round, and guidance on local statues governing automotive window film, download the IWFA's Consumer Guide to Automotive Window Film, and visit www.iwfa.com.
