Facts About UV Rays
Ultraviolet (UV) rays are high-energy wavelengths of light produced by
the sun. While some UV rays are absorbed by the atmosphere, a significant
amount of UV energy still reaches the Earth's surface.
- UV light possesses a wavelength between 100 and 400 nanometers; a typical
human hair is 10,000 nanometers thick. The human eye sees light from 400–700nm.
- The UV spectrum consists of three components: UVA (320-400nm), UVB (290-320nm),
and UVC (100-290nm). While standard glass blocks up to 97% of UVB rays,
it only blocks 37% of UVA rays.
- UV exposure is cumulative, meaning it builds up over many years. Studies
have shown that daily exposure to UV rays through office windows can hasten
signs of aging in the skin and increase the risk of skin cancer.
- Exposure to UV light can damage the natural lens of the eye, leading to
the formation of cataracts.
- While many types of light cause fading in furniture and fabrics, up to
40% of fading and aging of natural and manmade materials is attributed
to UV light.
- UV light can be reflected off of many surfaces, such as glass, concrete,
and snow. Thus, simply staying in a shaded area or inside a building will
not provide full protection from these rays.
- 60% of all UV rays that reach Earth are received between 10am-2pm—a
time when commercial businesses are typically busiest.

Three Ways Security Window Tinting Protects Your Business
Window tinting isn't only beneficial in terms of blocking UV rays.
Security window film tinting improves the strength and integrity of your
windows; the 3M window films used by Tint By Masters will:
- hold the pieces of a broken window together, minimizing damage during a
hurricane and protecting your business from attempted break-ins.
- prevent any pieces of broken glass from being forced into your building,
protecting the occupants within during an impact, storm, or bomb blast.
- offer a "sacrificial layer" that protects your glass from graffiti
and blade or acid rain etching; replacing damaged film is much more cost-effective
than replacing the glass.
