Carpets & Furniture Fading? – Here’s How to Stop It

Many organic materials, such as carpet, fabrics, artwork, and wood will fade upon exposure to sunlight…

Window selection can influence the type and intensity of transmitted radiation. When buying windows, ask for the ClearView window by OKNA that offers ClimaGuard™. These eleven optical tuned layers consist of multiple layers of metals whose combined thickness is only 1/1000th the thickness of a human hair! The most harmful radiation in sunlight is the ultraviolet (UV) rays. They are energetic and therefore more likely to break chemical bonds, leading to fading and degradation of your carpet and furniture. Glass blocks all UV radiation below 300 nm, but transmits UV rays from 300-380 nm. Coatings on glass can reduce the UV rays transmitted by up to 80%.
