UV Control, Dermatology & Anti-Fade Films

UV Control

The sun’s ultra violet (UV) ray’s, over time, cause colours to fade, fabrics to deteriorate, wood to warp & crack etc.  The damage to your curtains, carpets, floors, furniture and artworks can never be reversed, but it can be considerably prevented ahead of time by installing Opalux UV control, anti-fade window films.

Standard UV Protection

All Opalux polyester window films contain UV absorbers and block 99% of these harmful UV rays (In technical terms this means up to 99% of the UV rays in the range 300 to 380 nanometers of the solar spectrum).

Enhanced UV Protection

Opalux specialist museum grade films provide enhanced UV protection (in technical terms up to 400 nanometers and beyond).  These come in an optically clear film or with additional solar control properties. 

Enhanced UV control properties are also required in healthcare applications for certain skin conditions.  Please contact Opalux customer services department for further information and advice.

Super Enhanced UV Protection

Opalux amber UV control film blocks out the blue portion of the spectrum present in natural and artificial light. Certain photographic, pharmaceutical, laboratory and manufacturing processes (such as circuit board assembly) are sensitive to this part of the spectrum.  The end-user should be given samples to check before proceeding and in some cases multiple layers may be considered.

Accurate selection of film requires specialist knowledge and end-users and specifiers are encouraged to consult Opalux technical department. 

Where appropriate you will be connected to an Opalux approved dealer who can discuss your requirements, visit site if necessary, and provide costings for the film installation.
