Top 5 Benefits Of Tinting

The Top 5 Benefits of Tinting
Take care of the inside AND the outside.

We have been doing extensive research into the value of automotive window tinting and the statistics they have come up with are amazing. You may think of window film, also called window tint, as just an aesthetic enhancement, but it also provides long-lasting functional benefits to protect you and your vehicle. Let’s look at the numbers:

1. Fade Reduction

For many of us, our vehicles are the most valuable asset we own. It’s important to protect that investment as much as possible, and many drivers are unaware of the benefits of window tint. Window tint blocks solar radiation from entering your vehicle, without films, that radiation would fade upholstery and damage leather and vinyl. The interior of your vehicle will look newer for longer, and command a much higher resale value if you ever decide to sell.

2. UV Ray Blockage

Even transparent window tint will block over 99% of harmful UVA and UVB radiation, protecting you from sunburn and skin cancer. In North America, over half of facial skin cancer cases occur on the left side of people’s faces, correlating to the driver’s side of a vehicle. For those of us that spend a lot of time in our vehicles, especially commuters, window tint is an effective way to protect ourselves and our passengers from harm.

3. Solar Heat Rejection

Ever opened the door to your vehicle on a hot summer’s day and felt like you were stepping into an oven? Window tint can solve that problem. By blocking upward of 65% of solar heat from entering your car, window tint will help you keep the inside of your vehicle temperate. Reduce the strain on your AC unit and increase comfort by adding window tint.

4. Shattered Glass Protection

Window tint is incredibly strong. Strong enough to hold together broken glass shards in the case of an accident. Window tint will also prevent thieves from breaking into your vehicle, keeping your vehicle and belongings safe.

5. Privacy and Security

Darkened window tint adds to your sense of privacy when driving down the road, especially during heavy traffic. If you find yourself creeped out by other motorists while you are stationary, window tint is an excellent way to block wandering eyes. Additionally, darkened films help prevent auto-crime by stopping potential thieves from seeing into your vehicle. If a thief can’t see any valuables in your car, chances are that they will move on to a more obvious target.

The benefits of installing window tint go beyond aesthetic – you can even have all the heat rejecting, fade reducing, and UV ray blocking benefits without altering the look of your car at all. High quality window tint will make your ride more comfortable, more efficient, and safer for everyone.

  1. I actually had no idea that window tinting could block as much as 65% of heat from your car! To be honest, I thought that the amount of heat block would be much lower than 65%. That just shows how amazing technology is in this day and age. It’s just so cool that a simple film can do so much to protect your car!

  2. Wow, I had always known about tint blocking sunlight, but I had no idea that there were other benefits as well. In particular, I’m surprised to learn that it can hold shattered glass in place. That’s an amazing safety feature that I imagine has saved countless of lives.

  3. The best thing is that it gives the glass strength not to break down in severe conditions and the second best thing is that it provides privacy too…Good for all.

  4. Shattering glass is one of the most overlooked advantages of window tint. Don’t make the mistake of not investing in a quality film for your vehicle.

  5. My car’s interior is made of leather, so I was really interested to learn that tinting my windows can block a lot of heat from entering into my car. The 35-65% solar heat rejection you mentioned seems like more than enough to justify tinting my car windows. The leather gets so hot in the summer as it is, so I wouldn’t mind looking at getting my windows tinted right away to cool down my car a little bit.

  6. I love how you said that window tinting can help block up to 65% of solar heat! Our house gets really really hot from the sun both in the morning when the sun is rising and in the evening when it is setting. We always have to have the cooling on at those times of day and we have seen a rise in our electricity bills because of it. Keeping out some of that heat would be really nice, so we’ll have to look into getting some tinting done.

  7. I really liked it when you said that window tinting help blocks out 99% of the sun’s harmful rays that contributes to rapid skin aging and skin cancer. My sister has been suggesting window tinting to me for some time now, but I never actually took her suggestions into account. Reading this article changed my mind. I’ll bring my car over to a professional to get the windows tinted right away. Thanks a lot!

  8. I really appreciated it when you said that for the people who drive for extended periods of time, it is best to get their car windows tinted in order to make sure that they are protected from the dangerous UV rays of the sun. I will mention that to my brother because I am aware that his job is a to drive around the town to deliver things to stores. Considering that he already have sensitive skin, to begin with, I think getting his car tinted should be his top priority. Thank you for sharing.

  9. There really are a lot of benefits that window tinting can provide, so it is nice to see the article be so thorough. I particularly like that one of the big things that the article mentions is that window tint can protect you from shattered glass. After all, most drivers wouldn’t expect it to be able to hold the shattered glass in place and keep it from hitting them.

  10. I am thinking of getting my car windows tinted this summer to help avoid heat from coming into my car and I had no idea that there are so many benefits! You make a great point that tinting helps to protect your glass from shattering and will provide extra protection against thieves if they try to break into your car. This gives me peace of mind because the window tinting will provide privacy and security for my car.

  11. It got me when you said that one of the benefits of window tinting is that the glass will not shatter and hurt the passengers in case of an accident or something hits it. I guess the same thing applies to the window of the house. I need to keep the shards from flying in case the window shatters because there are kids in the house. Because of this, I think it is best to tint the home windows as well.

  12. My husband and I travel a lot since we got married so we wondered if we could get any tips on what we could do to our car to make it more travel-friendly. I didn’t know that even a transparent window tint will block over 99% of harmful UVA and UVB radiation, protecting you from sunburn and skin cancer. My husband does most of the driving and if there’s anything I could do to make sure his skin is safe from harmful conditions later in the future, I don’t mind making the investment of tinted windows on our car.
