Beating the Heat: Solar Window Film Solutions for Schools

As the days grow longer and the temperatures rise, our schools are gearing up for the impending summer. While the sunny season brings a sense of excitement and adventure, it also presents a set of challenges, especially in recent years. May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, the perfect time to take steps to improve UV levels at your school.

If you’re fighting to manage the heat and harmful UV rays within your school premises, you’re in the right place. In this blog post, we'll delve into the impactful role that solar window film plays in creating a sun-safe environment for schools, ensuring that students and staff are both shielded from the harsh effects of the sun.

Understanding the Issue

You can’t overstate the impact of UV exposure on students and staff. Prolonged exposure to UV light can lead to skin damage, eye strain, and an increased risk of skin cancer. Schools with expansive windows and abundant natural light can inadvertently become environments with heightened UV exposure. Additionally, the glaring light can make students more lethargic and less attentive, while the workaround of drawing the blinds can have the same effect.

The Power of Solar Window Film

Solar window film is a budget-friendly step to help minimize the effects of UV light, acting like a sunscreen for your building. It blocks out a significant portion of the sun's harmful rays and contributes to a comfortable indoor environment. With solar window film, your school can create an atmosphere that encourages learning and pupil well-being whether it is October or June.

Benefiting Schools

Solar window film reflects a proactive commitment to your school's community, so it's something you will want to share with parents, students and other interested parties. By investing in solar window film solutions, your school is demonstrating its dedication to creating a safe and nurturing environment for students and staff, so don’t keep it to yourself! As the heat starts to build, you will also benefit from your window film’s temperature-moderating effects. While this is variable, any reduction in your need for cooling can contribute to your school's sustainability efforts.

An Added Bonus for Your Furnishings

UV light isn’t just damaging for your students and staff. Direct sunlight can cause fading of colours on furnishings, books, artwork and more. If you’ve ever lifted a rug and seen a strikingly more vivid colour underneath, that’s a great example. While solar window film is a fantastic idea for the health of your students and team, it will also help to prolong the appearance of your school, ideal for prospective parent nights, inspections and the general morale of the school.

Take Action for a Sun-Safe Future

As you prepare for sunny days ahead, use Skin Cancer Awareness Month as a catalyst for good. If you’ve been looking at UV solutions for a while, it’s the perfect time to bring your ideas to the table and get the sign-off for the budget.
