Summer is almost here. And while it’s fun to enjoy the sunny, warm weather, you should also keep in mind that the sun can be dangerous. A trip to the lake sounds like a perfect weekend getaway in Minnesota. But are you sure you have the essentials? Beach towel, swimsuit, sunglasses, sunblock and window film? You may be surprised by that last item on the list. But did you know that you are still encountering the harmful UV rays while you drive? That means the 2 hour drive up to the cabin is a lot of exposure to the sun. The UV rays are able to penetrate through the glass which can cause sunburn, escalate aging and even lead to cancer. The photo below represents just how damaging the sun can be while driving.




With window film, both UVA and UVB rays are blocked when combined with the glass. Some people believe that you need to have a dark film to receive the all benefits…but that is not the whole truth. It doesn’t matter how light or dark the window film is; you are actually still receiving the same UV protection which is 99%. 3M Window Films are also backed by the skin cancer foundation.


Window films protect you and your occupants while in the vehicle, and also helps reduce the heat to keep you cool. So before you head to the lake this summer, make sure to pack all of your essentials, and don’t forget to protect with window film—SPF 1,000.
