Out of the Darkness ............. Into the Light

Protecting people against UV Sensitivity

UV Sensitivity Conditions

 

Worldwide, there are millions of people who suffer from sensitivity to Ultra-Violet (UV) light to some degree and many for whom exposure to UV is ultimately, life-threatening. The distressing symptoms range from inconvenient and painful prickly heat type reactions to the potentially fatal conditions which affect the sufferers of the more severe but much rarer, groups of diseases such as Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP)

For those with XP exposure to UV can affect the skin, the nervous system and eyes. Without constant monitoring this can lead to cancers. Many of these conditions are genetic and therefore most likely to affect children but in some cases the effects can be delayed until adulthood.

This young boy cannot venture outside without wearing fully protective clothing which is often restrictive,  warm and expensive.

The film is totally transparent and undetectable

 

Solar Control Window Film is a technically advanced, clear polyester coating which is applied to existing glass. It keeps out almost all the UV Light, while allowing daylight and clear vision through the glass – making life normal for the whole family from within the house.  It goes on working day in and day out and its scratch resistant coating ensures it is easiliy cleaned and needs no maintenance.

For most sufferes and their families, life has to be lived away from sunlight, often behind closed curtains and venturing outdoors is only to be done after sundown or muffled in protective clothing. Now many suffers are finding life a little brighter as they can open the curtains and enjoy the sunshine.

The film can also be applied to the family car for even more freedom and is being installed in playgroups, schools, dermatology clinics….

Case History

Two Lancashire children with Xeroderma Pigmentosum

With this genetic condition, exposure to UV sunlight causes a delayed and persistent sunburn-like reaction, caused by the impairment of the ability of DNA to repair itself. Understandably, for most of their lives they were kept behind closed curtains – with the rest of the family “in the dark”.

The solution was the application of our UV filter film to all the windows in their home and the in the family car. The same film has also been used to treat the windows of their local school, making regular attendace possible.

“The children are transformed, It is wonderful to watch them enjoying everyday sights such as the postman and the milkman”

I encourage my patients to have this film installed at home and in the car, school or workplace as treated windows can make a significant improvement to their quality of life!
