One of the best things about living in Salt Lake City is that the weather is beautiful year round. On average, Salt Lake City receives over 220 days of sunshine every year.
While this makes for generally agreeable and pleasant days that can be spent outdoors, there is one downside. The constant sun combined with the high altitude can cause major damage to books and art.
Fortunately, there’s an easy solution. By installing uv protection window films from LLumar, Salt Lake City libraries and museums can protect their building from the sun and prevent fading.
Why Is Sunlight Bad for Books & Art?
We tend to think of books and art as being permanent, but the truth is that, like all things, they’re susceptible to wear and tear caused by time and the elements. Books and artwork need to be stored in a climate controlled environment so that they don’t disintegrate. If books and artwork are left in the sun, they can fade tremendously, and their precious contents can be lost forever.
But why does this happen? It’s truly a simple matter of science. Sunlight causes a chemical reaction in dyes and paper. When sunlight comes into contact with paper and paint, it triggers a chemical change. Over time, dyes and papers start to fade, become discolored, and slowly degrade.
LLumar Films Protect Salt Lake City Libraries & Museums
LLumar films offer Salt Lake City libraries and museums an easy way to prevent uv damage and protect valuable paintings and literate. LLumar window films employ a special type of technology that gives windows the ability to cast off uv radiation and keep it from flooding indoors. By installing LLumar Window Film, you can protect the books, furniture, and art in your building and preserve them for the enjoyment of future generations.
