Durban is a wonderful city to call home.  We at SFF know this because we are headquartered here in South Africa’s favourite holiday city.  Our winters are short and summers long.  The sun truly shines here over 300 days a year and since we are located on the coast, one could not ask for more activities to fill these gorgeous sunny days.  The sun is a powerful ally here in Durban, but like many good things, there are downfalls to the intense sun here. Powerful sunlight is known to damage skin and is linked to melanoma cancers.  Additionally, left unchecked, rays can damage home interiors and furnishings.  One way to protect your family and home, while still taking advantage of the wonderful Durban sun is to install window film on your residential home. Residential window film protects:

Your Family: Window film can help provide sun protection for your family’s skin.  Most people do not realize that harmful UV rays can pass through glass. The Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays, in particular, are deep penetrating and dangerous and can reach deep into your home. Residential window tint blocks up to 99.9% of UVA rays.  This means you and your family are protected from harmful rays that may contribute to wrinkles, photo-damage, or worse, cancers of the skin.

Your Home:  UV window film provides a barrier between a building’s interior furnishings and harmful ultraviolet radiation. Ultraviolet rays are responsible for causing much damage including fading of upholstered furniture, wood furniture, floors, and rugs. Since ordinary glass offers little to no protection from the sun, UV window films are a must to give your home and belongings a long, beautiful life.

Window Films give protection up to SPF 1000 and are a relatively low-cost investment that pays for themselves in as little as 5 years.  There is no better way to keep your family and furnishing from the damaging rays of the sun than with window tint and film.
