Window tinting

Car window tinting

Everybody has their own reasons for tinting their vehicle. For a permissible window tint, all side windows from the B-pillar and the rear window may be tinted, provided that exterior mirrors are installed on both sides.

One of the primary reasons for having your vehicle’s windows tinted is to hide the interior from prying eyes. I am sure you will agree that driving in a goldfish bowl is not very pleasant at all. Out on the streets, people peer into the car, see what you are doing, who you are with, and what you have got inside. In a car with tinted windows, you can feel relaxed like being at home or in the office, and items left inside will not be exposed to everyone else. At the same time, tinted glass will not prevent you or your passengers from seeing what is going on outside.

Another equally important reason for having tinted windows is to protect the interior from ultraviolet radiation and sunlight. Applying a tinting film to your vehicle’s windows lowers the temperature of the interior, making your time in the car more comfortable while also lowering the load on the air-conditioning system.

As for ultraviolet radiation, it may cause irreversible damage not only to the interior of your vehicle, but also human skin. The film forms a protective layer which blocks up to 99% of UV rays and protects the interior from discolouration. It also protects your passengers from UV radiation exposure.

Tinting films also have safety properties. In the event of an accident, the tempered side windows and rear windshield will generally shatter into small fragments which can be disastrous. If the glass has a protective film, any impact or a small stone thrown up by a vehicle in oncoming traffic will break the glass but the glass fragments will remain attached to the film. This means they are not scattered through the interior causing injury.
