The shades available in automotive window film are the most important to select. The shades you choose give your vehicle its overall look and its new appearance when the installation job is complete.
The film’s Darkness is measured by Visible Light Transmission (VLT). VLT means how much light the film allows to pass through the glass window. The lower the number (film reference number,) the darker the film, hence the more privacy you get when sitting inside your vehicle.
Most film manufacturers follow a standard Percentage of VLT. These specifications are listed further down on this page and may vary a percentage or two depending on the brand of window film selected.
One of the Main Reasons People Tint Their Car Windows...
Is to reduce glare from the sun’s blinding rays. Window film also works great at filtering out the sun’s damaging skin cancer-causing rays.
Window film can also reduce the glare from another car’s headlights. And we all know how annoying and distracting that can be.
If you live or drive up to the snow, a car tint can keep the sun from reflecting against ice and snow, as well.
Filtering the light could benefit your vision during a drive. You’ll find that by applying window film to your vehicle’s windows, you won’t need that expensive extra pair of polarized sunglasses for driving anymore. That means your eyes won’t get so tired.
Although polarized lenses could reduce glare from oncoming traffic, they don’t necessarily help night driving and could do more harm than good. The filter placed on polarized lenses prevents some light from hitting the eye, creating a dimmer view when wearing them.

That all leads to safer driving.
You don’t want to notice obstacles in the road until it’s too late because the sun’s rays, or bright headlights blinded your vision, do we?
In addition to filtering sunlight and headlights, window tint can also filter out the heat.

Window film not only allows for more temperate control inside your vehicle but also improves safety.
Tempered glass is much harder to break when window film is applied. Tempered glass will not shatter into a million pieces when attached to window film. In the event of an attempt to break a window, the glass fragments adhere to the film, which makes the glass much harder to crack, therefore causing less damage, shattered glass in the event of a broken window or a car accident.
With the benefit of glare reduction from the installation of window film, on your windshield and side windows, you’ll have less distraction while driving. This results in a much safer, more enjoyable ride due to less glare resulting in a safer drive.
Car tint also helps prevent premature fading and aging of your vehicle’s interior. Whether your interior is plastics or leather, you’ll be better protected from the harmful effects of the sun’s rays by applying window film. It also acts as an anti-aging measure as it blocks the harmful rays that cause skin cancer and sunspots on your arms or face.
