Basking in the Sun: Unveiling the UV Protection Benefits

When it comes to enjoying the Florida sunshine, having a pool is a must. But as we revel in outdoor living, it's essential to consider the impact of UV rays on our well-being. At Lafferty Aluminum & Screening, we understand the importance of safety without compromising the joy of basking in the sun. Do pool screens block UV rays? Let's delve into the protective benefits of our pool enclosures.

Understanding UV Rays:Ultraviolet (UV) rays, emitted by the sun, are classified into UVA, UVB, and UVC rays. While the Earth's atmosphere absorbs most UVC rays, UVA and UVB rays can have significant effects on our skin, eyes, and overall health. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can lead to sunburn, premature aging, and an increased risk of skin cancer.

1. UV Protection with Lafferty Pool Enclosures:

The short answer is yes—Lafferty Aluminum & Screening pool enclosures are designed to block a significant portion of harmful UV rays. Our high-quality screens act as a protective barrier, allowing you to enjoy your pool and outdoor space without direct exposure to the sun's harmful effects.

2. UVA and UVB Ray Blockage:

Our specially crafted screens are effective in blocking both UVA and UVB rays. This means that not only are you shielded from the immediate dangers of sunburn, but you also reduce the long-term risks associated with prolonged UV exposure.

3. Skin Protection for Your Family:

Families in Florida often spend considerable time around their pools. With Lafferty's pool enclosures, you can create a safer environment for your loved ones, providing peace of mind while they soak up the sun.
