South African Sun is Dangerous

South African Sun is far more dangerous than you think!

Recent reports show that millions of South Africans are becoming bombarded with potentially lethal levels of ultra violet radiation strong enough to break down plastics and are breathing air ten times more polluted than recommended international standards.

These are some of the startling facts in a comprehensive state of the environmental report, a Government document that warns of catastrophe unless South Africa protects its natural resources.

The report also says figures from Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban show ultra violet B radiation as being at extremely dangerous levels last summer.

The worrying factor is that the radiation levels are at a very dangerous level between two and six months of the year says Dr. Rudi Pretorius, Director of Information for Department of Environmental Affairs.

According to the report, air pollution in many industrial and residential suburbs within the country’s major metropolitan areas, was more than double the World Health Organisation’s recommendation.

Environmental Affairs Minister, Villi Moosa said the report showed the urgency for public awareness about the dangers of ultra violet light.

Klingshield has spent the past 38 years developing and perfecting the application of window film for the treatment of glass for motor vehicles, homes, offices and factories. We have paved the way for thousands upon thousands of successful applications of our window film products, offering consumers 99.5% ultra violet protection from the sun.

Consumers should take action now and have Klingshield new ultra vision high performance UV film fitted to their offices, homes and cars.

This UV protective film was originally designed for Museum windows in the United States of America to stop the fading of original artworks and artefacts in these museums.

Ultra violet light is also one of the main reasons contributed to fading and deterioration of fabrics and furnishings.
