Do screens protect from UV rays from the Sun?

uv rays screen damageSpring has sprung on us here in Florida, and with it, some of the not so “fun in the sun” dangers of overexposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays. Fortunately, for those of us who have discovered the benefits of screen enclosures, we’ve learned how to beat the heat while enjoying the great outdoors…..and we’re doing it in style!

While some sun exposure is beneficial to your health by providing a natural source of Vitamin D to the body (which aids in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus - essential for healthy bones), overexposure to the sun is nothing to rest on your laurels about. 

Dangers of overexposure to the sun (or Excessive Sun Exposure) include: 

  • Deterioration of the skin, including premature aging and loss of elasticity.
  • Rashes, itchiness, and dryness.
  • Damage to the eyes.
  • Sunburn.
  • Skin cancer.

Screen enclosures are available with various degrees of protection against harmful UV rays. Solar screens block UV rays all year long while keeping your home’s temperature cooler, lowering your electric bill by lowering your need for air conditioning and even adding extra protection against wind.
