DermaGard is a technically advanced, clear polyester coating which is applied to existing glass. It keeps out almost all the Ultra-Violet light, while allowing daylight and clear vision through the glass - making life normal for the whole family. It goes on working day in day out, and its scratch resistant coating ensures it is easily cleaned and needs no maintenance. The film can also be applied to the family car for even more freedom, and is being installed in playgroups, schools, dermatology clinics...WHEREVER THERE IS GLASS
Worldwide, there are millions of people who suffer from sensitivity to
Ultra-Violet light to some degree, and many for whom exposure
to UV is, ultimately, life-threatening. The distressing symptoms range
from inconvenient and painful prickly-heat type reactions to the potentially life-threatening conditions which affect the sufferers of the more severe, but much rarer, groups of diseases such as xeroderma pigmentosum. For these sufferers, exposure to UV can affect the skin, the nervous system and eyes, and without constant monitoring can lead to cancers. Many of these conditions are genetic, and therefore most likely to affect children, but in some cases the effects can be delayed until adulthood.
For most of these sufferers, and their fam ilies, life has to be lived away from sunlight, often behind closed curtains, and venturing outdoors is only to be done at night, or muffled in protective clothing.
Now many sufferers are finding life a liHle brighter, as they can open the curtains and enjoy the sunshine. In most instances, the film can be applied within a day, to all the windows and other glass panels, without disruption or mess.
It is inexpensive, and help with the cost is often available through local Social Services ar supporters organisations. Your dermatology clinic should have details.
