May 6th, 2020 by Emmariah Holcomb

Madico Inc. (Madico) has recently been awarded the Seal of Recommendation by The Skin Cancer Foundation for its automotive, architectural and safety and security window films, which according to the company, block 99% or more of UVA and UVB radiation.

Madico solar control window films provide cooler interiors and reduce glare, in addition to blocking most of the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

Indoor skin protection is an important, yet often overlooked, safety measure for preventing skin cancer, according to the company. The EPA estimates Americans spend on average 90% of their time indoors. UVA rays can pass through unprotected windows and can cause the same type of skin damage experienced outdoors.

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation:

  • Skin cancer is the most common cancerin the United States and worldwide;
  • One in five Americanswill develop skin cancer by the age of 70;
  • More than two peopledie from skin cancer in the U.S. every hour; and
  • Approximately 90% of skin aging is caused by the sun.
