Automotive Window Tinting
Automotive window tinting has several advantages. They are more effective in blocking out UV radiation than standard glass, offering better protection for your interiors. As a result, the vehicle’s carpeting, dashboard, upholstery – all of which can fade easily when exposed to long hours in the sun – remain in good condition for longer.
How does Window Tinting Work?
Window tinting is a process in which a thin laminated film is applied to the glass that changes the colour to a darker hue. Some use it to protect themselves and other passengers in the car from the harsh ultraviolet rays. Others use it to enhance privacy or reduce heat and sun glare, all of which helps you drive better with more attention on the road and less on the sun glare that makes focusing difficult. Many drivers use window tint for aesthetic purposes to give their vehicle a cooler look or customized style as well. But the functionality of the thin film gives you many reasons to consider application if you have not done so yet.
UV Protection, Impact Resistant
High-quality, durable window tints can act as a shield in an accident by holding up glass, preventing it from shattering or reducing impact considerably. If you tend to keep personal items in the car, darkened windows reduce visibility keeping them safe from prying eyes. However, it is not quite a DIY job, even if it looks simple enough to apply. Believe it or not, the process can take anywhere from one to five hours and cost you between $100 to $800. If it’s not done well, it can ruin the film and the glass.
