Hit the Road in Comfort and Style, with Professionally Installed Window Film

By darrell@iwfa.com on 3/29/2016

Spring is here and it's a great season to plan the family road trips that you’ll remember forever! My family enjoys travelling to see new places and get out of our routine with a great vacation. In addition to that, like many other families, we spend countless hours in our vehicles commuting to and from work, traveling to sports events, competitions, social engagements, family celebrations and more.

With all of this time spent in our vehicles, and a growing understanding of how important it is to reduce UV exposure to our skin and eyes – it amazes me that more families aren’t aware of the important benefits professionally installed window film can deliver. It provides real peace of mind to families while they spend all of these hours in the car.
 
While we truly enjoy our family road trips, they can also be stressful at times. Professionally installed window film not only creates a more comfortable cabin, it might even reduce the number of times your very uncomfortable younger passengers will ask “are we there yet?”  Here’s how.
 
Window film can block up to 99% of UV rays to help keep our skin and eyes more protected and healthy. It can also dramatically reduce glare – which can make the driving experience easier on your eyes as well as the sight-seers riding with you, no matter how bright the sun is shining. Window film can also reduce solar heat gain within the cabin of your vehicle. This means the seats might not feel like they’re sizzling when you hop in to hit the road this summer on a sunny day, and because your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard to cool the cabin, you may also use less fuel. 

Consumers who want to take advantage of the benefits of professionally installed window film can learn more about it from the International Window Film Association (IWFA). The IWFA provides a dealer locator on our website, www.iwfa.com where you can find an accredited professional in your area and read our automotive e-booklet.

April is car care month – so now is a perfect time to book an appointment for professional window film installation! And later in the coming month on April 30th, we’ll be celebrating National Window Film Day. Dealers, installers, and manufacturers will hold special events at window film locations across the country, and the IWFA specifically invites you to join their Tweet chat that day using #WindowFilmDay on Twitter.

When you visit the IWFA website, please join our social media community on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube so you can continue to learn more about the benefits of professionally installed window film whether for your car, home, or office.

Happy Driving!
