It's all about wavelength. UVB gets blocked, while UVA, with its longer wavelength, tends to go through glass pretty easily.

Since I work in the suncare industry, I could probably go on for days, but I'll stop there for now ...

that's enough! and the longer the wavelength the more damaging the ray. that bit of info (the UVB & glass bit) always stuck with me from physics class, for some reason.
