Klingshield Technical Department, Johannesburg South Africa
Gauteng, South Africa -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/18/2013 -- As we venture into our summer season here, Leon Levy, CEO of Klingshield Window Film Company, Johannesburg, urges parents not to leave children unattended in a vehicle whilst out doing errands. This is a very risky practice and as it has been widely reported in the media, we have seen how kids have suffered from such an extreme form of overheating.
It was reported in the Daily Mail, in the UK, that an innocent child was left unattended in a scorching hot vehicle. The temperature was 20c degrees outside when the parent left their child in the car and headed off unassumingly to do some shopping.
The parent received a 12 month sentence from a magistrate for this reckless action. This has set a precedent to other parents, helping to put a stop this abusive practice. The court now considers this a very serious offence.
Chris Cloke, head of the Child Protection Department in the UK said “one should never leave an unattended child in a car, especially on a hot day and I am pleased to see this action taken by the courts".
There is a way to control the flow of heat into a vehicle. Sun control window film applied to car windows will reduce the amount of heat coming into the car and can be a massive benefit for parents transporting children in vehicles. The Klingshield sun control film also reduces the amount of glare shining in the child's eyes, making the ride more comfortable for them. Klingshield window film which is applied to all glass areas turns the car glass into a shatterproof glass. This makes the vehicle a safer and more secure place should the vehicle be involved in an accident.
This is a wakeup call to all parents to take note and install sun control window film on their car windows as soon as possible. This will only add to the protection and safety of your family unit.
