    Why do you think quality sunglasses offer special UV filter, and in some stores there are devices to test the lens about UV filtering?
    Glass filter some UV light, but not all,and the lower UV range is filtered just a little bit. by simple glass.

    Funny, a 5 second search around the web proves what I said. Glass does indeed block some UV light, they do not need a filter. You need some, but not cancerous no ozone layer levels.

  5. jerryaltman Says:

    So far as I know simple glass do not block UV light. Even the films used in cars windows, to look dark from outside, do not block well UV, but just one type, since there are UVA and UVB.

    Glass blocks UV, you are worried about nothing… no offense.

    The windows should have a UV filter. Much sun light increase risk of skin cancer.

    keep in mind that you can close the light aswell, by a butterfly flap, that can electronicly close the light gap if needed.

    heres an idea for you, one that i fully credit to my father who reminded me to do this constantly growing up…turn off your lights when you leave a room…and who needs a stairway fully lit all day long?! what happens when you want to take a nap on your couch, turn off the sun? seriously…good idea, bad judgement…go green if you want to spend the green, by all means……..
