Secure-Lite Window Company

Do Secure-Lite Barriers block out the sun's UV rays?

Yes. Ultraviolet light causes sunburn, color fading and deterioration of natural and synthetic materials.

Museums always use laminated glass to provide color fade protection, as do most furniture stores.

The inner layer of plastic used in our laminated glass blocks 99.9% of all the UV light from passing through. On the other hand, standard glass (used in almost all commercial and residential applications) blocks very little UV light. Even the newer "low E" glass cannot compete with the UV protection of laminated glass.

Some of our customers buy our barriers not for sound, but for the UV protection. It is a benefit that may or may not be important to you. It does not harm plants to not get UV rays.
