As a way to honor May as being Skin Cancer Awareness Month, we wanted to share this important sun safety information with you. Did you know that you can be exposed to skin damaging UV rays even when you are indoors at home or work? It’s true. In fact in a recent article published by The Skin Cancer Foundation entitled “Sneaky Ways You’re Being Exposed to the Sun’s UV Rays”, they state;


“…you may think you’re safe from the sun’s rays while you’re on the clock. Not so fast: Do you work near a window? If so, UVA rays are coming to work with you. UVB rays, the primary sunburn ray, are largely blocked by glass; but more than 50 percent of UVA rays, the main cause of premature skin aging, can penetrate glass. (Both UVA and UVB rays contribute to the development of skin cancer.) If you’re anywhere within several feet of the window, the rays will reach you.”


That is one of the reasons The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends window tint as part of a comprehensive skin care. In their article “Why Use Window Film?”, they say “Ultraviolet radiation can travel through car and home windows, where it can contribute to the daily accumulation of sun exposure that can lead to skin cancer and photoaging. UV-blocking films can not only protect you against this exposure, but can offer other benefits as well.”


We hope that this article and Skin Cancer Awareness Month encourage you to look into things you can be doing every day to practice sun safety. If you have additional questions or would like to contact us, call 317-541-8468 for our Indianapolis store and 317-762-8468 for our Greenwood location. We would be happy to provide you with an assessment and estimate on implementing sun control window films in your Indianapolis, Indiana area home or commercial space.

Some days it may not feel like it, but Spring is just around the corner! With warmer weather on the way, this is the perfect time of year to consider home window tinting in the Indianapolis area from Tint King. So, while you wait for the sun and warm weather to arrive, consider these three reasons you should consider home window tinting for your Spring home improvement project.


Three Benefits of Home Window Tinting


Greater Energy Efficiency - Modern window films can be used as a retrofit to nearly any window to improve their energy efficiency. By improving the insulating properties of your window unit, window film improves the comfort of your home while reducing the load on your air conditioning system. The result can be a more comfortable home with lower utility bills.


Protect Furnishings from Fading - UV rays, heat and glare from the sun can cause sun damage to your floors, carpets and furniture. Home window tinting works to block the contributors to fading and extend the life of your furnishings.


Add Privacy and Decor - Decorative window films can be used on any window where additional privacy is needed. From bathrooms to entryway windows, there are many options to add privacy without sacrificing looks. These films can also be used to add a custom decorative element to nearly any glass panel.


We hope this brief article gave you some ideas on how home window tinting can be the perfect addition to your house this Spring. If you would like more information, call 317-541-8468 for our Indianapolis store and 317-762-8468 for our Greenwood location. We would be happy to provide a free, no obligation consultation and estimate of implementing window film solution in your home this Spring.
