BENEFITS OF WINDOW TINTS
Window tinting provides security from thieves in two ways; it blocks items from the view of passers-by, which is particularly useful for vans containing tools, and it eliminates the temptation of quick ‘smash and grab’ robberies, as the film holds the glass in place.

With a combination of reduced heat, glare and UV, window tinting results in an overall much more pleasant journey for all. Pets, children, and older family members will be much happier in the cooler environment.

Window tinting film offers protection in the event of a broken vehicle window. When a tinted window breaks, the shattered glass is held in place by our premium films meaning the passengers inside are car are protected. This also make it harder to break in.

WINDOW TINTING FACTS
Window tints and tinted sun strips reduce glare – not just from the sun, but from headlights and reflections too. This will alleviate eye strain and possibly tiredness too on long journeys. Glare reduction is especially useful for combatting the low winter sun.

Vehicle window tinting can reduce the heat inside a car by up to 65%, and help cool the car down quicker meaning less use of the air-conditioning. This is a great advantage in the summer months and provides an extra safety for parents and dog owners.

Window tinting is an excellent option for UV protection, as even the optically clear films block 99% of harmful UV rays. This protection covers both UVA and UVB light, that glass alone cannot block – again a very useful safety feature for those with children or babies.

THE LAWS ON WINDOW TINTS
In the UK, your windshield must let at least 75% of light through, and the front side windows must allow at least 70% of light through. All windows to the back of the driver can have any tint darkness levels that you choose.

If you have tinted your windows too dark, the police or DVSA can give you a ‘prohibition notice’ which means you must stop using your vehicle on the road until the tint has been removed. However, it is also possible to receive a penalty notice or court summons.

Although not compulsory, it is recommended you notify your insurance provider about your window tint. Often, future claims can be invalidated as it can be considered a car modification. IS IT SAFE TO TINT CAR WINDOWS? Yes! By tinting your car windows, you gain a level of added UV protection, and it can prevent your glass from shattering. When you get your car windows tinted, it is crucial to meet the legal regulations and complete it to a high standard.

HOW LONG DO WINDOW TINTS LAST
Everything has a lifespan or a shelf life—your vehicle and its window tints included. Every part of a vehicle will eventually need some maintenance and replacement. In the same way that parts of your vehicle will tire and wear over time, window tints also eventually need to be replaced.

Usually window tints last up to 10 years. By choosing not to go to a professional company for your windows tinting, you will likely receive poor installation, which can result in the tint wearing down a lot quicker. It is important to note that the durability of window tinting will decrease over time if your maintenance isn’t completed properly.
