What is RF Blocking Window Film?

May 23, 2021 in Aggrigate, UV/UVB/ RF Blocking Window Tint

Here in a relatively large city like Dallas, there are radio frequency (RF) waves bombarding us at all times from various sources. This is true in almost any city due to population density and technology. As such, usually the closer you are to a city center the more RF you are exposed to. While this type of wave is for the most part harmless–some people react poorly to it and in large doses, close, consistent doses there is some anecdotal evidence it could cause harm. It also poses a security threat to your Dallas home or business. Read below to find out more

RF Blocking Window Film for Better Health

RF radiation could be detrimental to health because of the low-energy type of wave it is. It is not high energy like other types of waves like “non-ionizing radiation”/infrared and visible light. However, it carries more energy than more harmless rays frequency radiation types. This type of wave typically can cause heat in the body, especially when a person is nearby for an extended amount of time to a tower or radio source. This could, potentially cause harm to the human body but no research is clear as to how much if at all. So, to be clear, these waves should not be considered extremely harmful to humans at this time. As mentioned.. anecdotally, there is a vague link to RF exposure and poor human health conditions like headaches, ear ringing, and blurry vision. The closer to a radio broadcasting source someone live, the higher the chance that RF waves affect them and the solution to this could be RF blocking window film. It blocks these waves through when applied to windows of homes and businesses. Customers with this technology often report feeling better from this additional layer of RF protection

RF Blocking Window Film for Better Cyber Security

In regards to security. RF films have long been used by companies, specifically those who work for or are part of the US government. RF window films allow them to protect very sensitive classified information from espionage. However, in a new digital era, this type of film is being deployed to protect the digital information entering and leaving homes in Dallas and other cities across the US. It very well could become a new reality. This is because windows without RF protection are proving to be susceptible to cyber intrusion and hacking of wifi and/or wireless networks. The way RF window films protect is by stopping the intrusion at the source– your windows. Typically RF penetration through building materials is not very good–so criminals target glass windows to gather sensitive data. Although these films are not commonly used in homes in Dallas, for companies that need very high cyber-security protection they are used frequently and have been for some time: military, military contractors, and cyber companies. Over the next decade or some other businesses may very well be adopted RF Blocking window film technology too. Any company that handles secure information like banks, government agencies and even healthcare organizations are all targets for cybercriminals. Also, as the number of people working from home increases, RF films may become the new norm for those who work with large amounts of private data.

October 28, 2020 in Aggrigate, UV/UVB/ RF Blocking Window Tint

In a day and age where the sun and heat in Dallas are more frequent and powerful than ever, blocking UV rays streaming into your home is a “must-do”. Of course, some blinds and curtains can block out the sun some-what effectively. However, these only take care of part of the problem and only partially at that.

For a thorough solution to UV radiation coming through your Dallas home’s windows–the best defense is UV blocking Window Film. Read below to find out how it works.  

Window Film Protects Skin and Eyes From UV Radiation

Window Film Protects Home Furnishings

The Top 3 Benefits Of UV Blocking Window Film

August 30, 2018 in Aggrigate, UV/UVB/ RF Blocking Window Tint

Here in Dallas, it sometimes gets so hot that it feels almost impossible to walk even just a few blocks when the sun is shining strong. Besides light and heat, the sun also radiates ultraviolet rays that are known to be harmful. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends using UV blocking window films to protect against these powerful rays. Here are the benefits of using UV blocking window film:

Stop UV Ray Damage To You And Your Home

90% of all skin cancers can be connected to UV radiation according to the Archives of Dermatology. We are at risk of UV radiation damage even when we are indoors if we are under direct natural light. Natural light can be filtered to be safe by using UV blocking window film so that you and your family reduce the risk of skin cancer. Those with solar sensitivity will be happy to know that these films can also be applied to their cars and offices as well.

UV blocking window films can also extend the life of your furniture, flooring, and works of art by reducing sun-related fading and discoloration. While these window films may simply look like a clear layer, they are in fact constructed with nano-technology to reject the sun’s infrared light.

Improve The Indoor Ambiance Of Your Dallas Home

When the sun is shining too brightly, it can be hard to see indoors, especially if you are trying to view something a screen, like your smartphone or computer monitor. You may reach out to close your curtains in order to reduce any glares, but sacrifice any natural light in the meanwhile. With UV blocking window film, you can have both natural light and glare-free screens in your home.

An overabundance of sunlight coming in may also mean you are uncomfortably warm at certain times of the day. UV blocking window film also limits excess heat from coming in through windows and glass doors so that there are no uncomfortable hot spots.

Cut On Energy Costs For Your Home

Learn How Window Film Stops Your Dallas Home Furnishings From Fading

May 8, 2018 in Aggrigate, UV/UVB/ RF Blocking Window Tint

Why Your Dallas Home Furnishings Need Protection From UV Rays

Even here in Texas, where it almost never gets cold, you can tell that spring is here and people are excited about summer. The hot and bright days of summer are fast approaching and as a Texan, you likely love the sun–that is why you live here. That is a good thing too because we get plenty of it. However, as wonderful as the Texas sun is, it is pretty well known that the sun’s rays are anything but harmless–in fact, they are downright dangerous to human skin and home furnishings. That’s right, those sun rays pouring through your home windows have a pretty significant downside–the harmful UV rays and radiation they bring with them. They are severely detrimental to you and what’s more, for almost every item, big and small, in your Dallas home too. UV rays cause furniture, flooring, upholstery, and artwork to fade and deteriorate-quickly and forever. There simply is no fixing sun damage, so all those items you have worked so hard to furnish your home with are all but lost. However, there is something you can do to protect them because just like there is sunblock for your skin, there is a sunblock (of sorts) for your home furnishings too in the form of–window tinting.

How Window Film Works To Protect Your Dallas Home Furnishings From The Sun

Fading and discoloration are horrible and eventually lead to the deterioration of wood, fabric, or paint itself. This type of damage is conclusively linked directly to the effects of sunlight on your belongings. The three main components of sunlight that destroy your home furnishings and accessories are UVA rays, UVB rays, and infrared radiation. Even when it is overcast UV rays are actively working to harm your furnishings. This is why you need protection from the sun 24/7, all year long–especially in Texas where the sun never really goes away. The only and best solution to furniture fading and wood floors is window film. It blocks 99.9% of rays and radiation–Low-E windows only block about 85%. This is because Low E windows, while effective at keeping heat in, leave much to be desired when dealing with intense solar radiation i.e. UV, UVA, and UVB rays. The best part about using a quality window film like Vista, 3M or Llumar, to reject 99.9% of the sun’s harmful rays and protect your furnishings is there is never a loss of view or clarity. Actually, window film improves your view because it stops the glare that would normally make keeping the curtains open impossible.
