ULTRAVIOLET PROTECTION


Sunscreen protects our skin from damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays. Window treatments can do the same for your homes interior. We love light-filled rooms, but UV rays will eventually fade floors, furniture, upholstery, draperies and artwork. Prolonged exposure to sulnlight  causes natural, undyed fabrics to turn yeloow, weakening their fibers and making thgem look old and worn prematurely. The right window covering can be very effective in blocking ultraviolet rays.Such effectiveness is measured in terms of a  %UV blockage rating. The higher the rating the greater the UV protection. To fully minimize the amount of the harmful UV rays from entering the home, choose a product with a 99% uv blockage rating. Select  from products listed below.
