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:
Many people have conditions that make them more sensitive to UV exposure. Our fluorescent light filters help reduce symptoms caused by UV exposure.
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.
Protect yourself and your environment from radiation. Our UV light filters block 100% of UVB and up to 98-99% of UVA radiation.
