And despite the popular belief that the darker windows in the rear of SUV’s, CUV’s, trucks and minivans offer protection from the sun, these darkened windows are made for privacy and are less resistant to harmful sunlight than window film. Passengers in the back seat, who are often children, are still susceptible to damaging UVA rays. “To achieve full protection, window film should be installed over the privacy glass,” says Gershenson.

LLumar automotive window films have also earned The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation, a symbol of safety and efficacy. The Skin Cancer Foundation grants its Seal of Recommendation to products that meet the Foundation’s specific criteria for effective UV sun protection.

“Parents typically don’t let their kids outside without sunscreen, yet most people are unprotected every time they get in the car,” says Gershenson. "A simple and inexpensive fix to the problem is to have window film installed in your car. It offers round the clock protection and you don’t have to think about it once it’s installed.”

Lower temperatures, lower cooling costs

In these times of high fuel prices, every opportunity for savings is important. By reducing the interior temperature of a car, window film can reduce the need to run a vehicle’s cooling system, and that helps a car burn less fuel, resulting in reduced CO2 emissions. Infrared heat from the sun can make a vehicle unbearably hot during summer months, and window film can reduce interior surface temperatures by to up to 30 degrees.
