WASHINGTON, June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Neighborhood barbeques, pool parties, and vacations all mark the start of summer, also known as the Summer Solstice, on June 21st. In celebration of the season, The International Window Film Association (IWFA), a nonprofit trade association representing leading manufacturers, distributors and dealers, reminds consumers that it is also the perfect time to have window film professionally installed at home, and on cars or trucks too, for protection from the sun's harsh rays.

The Summer Solstice is the day that has the most hours of sunlight during the entire year. In temperate regions, the sun is higher in the sky throughout the day, and its rays penetrate the Earth at a more direct angle, making skin protection even more necessary.
"Summertime is the peak season to be extra cautious of the sun's powerful UV rays," said Darrell Smith, Executive Director of the IWFA. "Taking preventative action by having a professional install window film on your car, or at your home, is one simple way to reduce your risk of skin cancer."
According to The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention, there are more than 3.5 million new cases of skin cancer diagnosed and 2.2 million people treated for it in the U.S. each year. This startling news serves as a great reminder to keep skin protection top of mind, and professionally installed window film is a cost effective and high tech solution that blocks up to 99 percent of UV rays.
To learn more about how to better protect yourself from the sun in your home, at work, or while driving, be sure to read the IWFA's Beauty Inside & Out e-Booklet and Consumer Guide to Automotive Window Film e-Booklet.
