UV Light Filter Absorbs UV Radiation

Fluorescent light bulbs emit high levels of UV radiation


Decrease health dangers of UV with UV light filters

Fluorescent light is not only ugly and hard on the eyes, but can be extremely harmful for your body. Fluorescent light emits dangerous ultraviolet radiation, which accumulates in your body over time. There are two parts to this radiation, UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays are the ones that cause sunburn, while UVA rays are responsible for aging skin..

Chronic effects from long-term exposure to UV include:

  • Premature skin aging and wrinkling
  • Stronger allergic reactions
  • Cataracts

  • Weakened immune system
  • Skin cancer and deadly melanoma

Our UV light filters can block these rays, ensuring that your lighting isn’t causing any health issues.

UV Sensitivity

Many people have conditions that make them more sensitive to UV exposure. Our fluorescent light filters help reduce symptoms caused by UV exposure.

  • Lupus Erythematosus
  • Fibromyalgia

  • UV-sensitive syndrome
  • Photodermatitis

Did you know: The American Journal of Epidemiology found that fluorescent lights emit “10-30 times” more UVB radiation than the sun does. UVB radiation has been found to be carcinogenic (cancer-causing).

Material Damage

The UV rays emitted by fluorescent lighting can also damage or fade materials. UV rays are known to cause fading to photographs, paintings, carpet, draperies, clothing, etc.

From the graph, you can see that UV is a significant factor in material and fabric fading. Our UV sleeves help reduce material fading.
