REDUCE HARMFUL UV RAY IMPACT WITH WINDOW TINT FOR YOUR VEHICLE

By | Car Window Tint

Window tinting on your vehicle is a protective layer that can preserve more than just your vision on the road. Driving comes with a lot of awareness and concerns. Checking the time, changing the radio, adjusting the seats, watching the road, and keeping an eye on other drivers are all factors. But did you know that you should also be careful about UV rays and their potential damage?

UV rays can harm not just you but also your vehicle’s interior. Fading, leather deterioration, extreme heat, and cracked dashes can all result from UV rays damaging the interior. 

In addition to your vehicle, UV rays also cause damage to you, your eyesight, and your skin. UV rays have been directly linked to skin cancer when the skin is exposed to the sun for not periods. 

Our window films can be an effective and affordable solution to this problem! Our films reject up to 97% of the sun’s infrared light and 60% of the heat through your windows. This reduces the UV ray’s impact and protects you and your vehicle. In addition, window tinting also strengthens and extends the life of your vehicle’s glass, making it more resilient and less likely to need replacing anytime soon. 

  • Tinting the windows of your vehicle come with many advantages, such as:
  • Safety – holds tempered glass together
  • Security – prevents smash-n-grabs
  • Keeps vehicle cooler in summer
  • Keeps vehicle warmer in winter
  • Protects interior against fading
  • Increases resale value
  • Reduces brightness
  • Increases privacy
  • Reduces cancer-causing UV rays by up to 99.9%

Why You Should Have Your Car Windows Tinted

Why You Should Have Your Car Windows Tinted

Your car is a big part of your life. It is an investment in your future, yourself, and your family. It is very likely you spend more time in your car than you do at home! Because of this, it’s important to invest in your car to ensure it is a comfortable and safe place. 

Getting the oil changed, checking your breaks, and maintaining your tires are some basic maintenance when it comes to caring for your vehicle. But one of the big ways a vehicle can get overlooked is their windows. Specifically the tinting on your windows. Most cars come directly from the factory with tint already on the windows, so oftentimes there isn’t really a reason to give it much thought. 

In this article, we are going to go over the many reasons why your car’s window tint is important, and how it can enhance your driving experience. 

  1. Protection for your car’s interior 

The sun is a beautiful but destructive part of nature. Exposure to the sun for long periods can cause damage to pretty much anything, including the interior of your vehicle. Faded upholstery, cracked leather, and more are just some of the expensive damages a car can sustain from the sun. 

Tinted windows drastically extend the life of your vehicle’s interior by filtering out the sunlight. Not only does this protect your interior from fading or cracking, but it can also maintain the value of the vehicle making it easier to sell down the road. 

  1. Glare reduction

A driver can become distracted or hindered on the road in many ways, but glare from the sun in their faces can be the most annoying. The safety issues it brings alone can be reason enough to tint your windows. Hindering your view of the road, squinting in order to see, and not allowing you to see the full view of the road ahead can cause life changing or threatening consequences for you and others on the road. 

In addition, this glare can cause headaches after long periods of time. Unless you are wearing high quality sunglasses every time you hit the road, you will likely arrive at your destination with a pounding headache and lost focus. All of this can be prevented with a good layer of window tint. 

  1. Temperature control

Not only does reducing the amount of sun coming through your windows cut down on glare and interior damage, but it also helps keep the interior at a comfortable temperature. This can be especially important on hot summer days when the interior of a car can reach life threatening temperatures. 

  1. Increased privacy and security

We’ve all been caught at a stoplight singing along loudly to the music playing in the car. It can be embarrassing, especially if it’s someone we know. Having your windows tinted can prevent this humiliation by offering you more privacy in your vehicle without hindering your view to the outside. In addition, this can protect your car from potential burglary as it effectively hides whatever valuables you may have in your car.

Does Dark Tint Equal More Heat Rejection?

Does Dark Tint Equal More Heat Rejection?

By | Car Window Tint

A common question tint companies receive daily is “how dark will my window tint need to be to block out heat”? There are many layers to understand to answer this question. To start, there are three main components to heat: Ultraviolet rays (UV), infrared heat (IR), and visible light that you can see with the naked eye. Window films are designed to block either some or all of each of those, reducing the heat that comes into your home or vehicle. 

More traditional films will have darker shades with higher heat rejection. These films will only block the UV and visible light to reduce the heat coming in. Dyes are also added to the film during production to block more light and give a darker appearance. You can get really good heat rejection with these classic films; they are reliable and have been on the market for years. 

However, as technology grows, we see more and more films hit the market that offer much more variety to your options. These new films for starters, come with an additional layer of an IR-blocking coat. With this new coating built into them, the films can now block more than just UV rays and visible light, but IR. This not only allows for better heat protection but it also allows you to get films that aren’t as dark. 

These newer films can come in the traditional darker shades as well as virtually clear films that will block just as much if not more as the traditional films. An IR-coated film, a standard 35 shade of film will gain you an additional 10-20% overall heat-blocking rating compared to a good quality traditional film of a similar shade. This means you can maintain your aesthetic while gaining more protection. 

Clear films are usually used by car enthusiasts who want to preserve their vehicle’s aesthetic while protecting the interior from heat and UV damage.
