Top 5 Reasons to Tint
Tint improves both the interior and exterior of your car. Here is how.
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.
