Why Do People Tint Their Car Window?

One of the main reasons people tint their car windows is to reduce glare from the sun’s harmful ray’s. Window film works great at filtering out the sun’s damaging ray’s.

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, 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, so it creates a dimmer view when wearing them

Adding window film to your vehicle windows and even your residential windows will help reduce eye strain. That means reducing your need to squint while you’re on the road.

That all leads to safer driving.

You don’t want to notice that other car or obstacle in the road 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.

When selecting your window tint for your vehicle, or home, make sure it has the best thermal heat protection on the market. These filters will minimize how much solar heat can enter through that glass.

Select a Shade

The shade of film for your vehicle is the most important step. As it gives the car its overall look, its new appearance when the job is done. The Darkness of the film is measured by Visible Light Transmission (VLT).  VLT which means how much light the film allows passing through the 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 standard Percentage of VLT. These specifications are listed below and may vary a percent or two. 

Shade 5%

Also named Limo tint. This is the recommended shade for optimum privacy; however, night time driving can present an issue when backing up your vehicle down a darkened street or alleyway. Visibility viewing out your back window can be impaired because of the dark tint (Less light transmission), so it is recommended you use your vehicle side minors and caution when backing up.

Shade 15%

Medium shade. This shade gives your car more of an elegant look. It is a solid tinted look. This shade allows spectators to view inside your vehicle but gives your car an overall classy look.

Shade 35%

Light Shade. Choosing this shade on the rear half of your vehicle will give your windows an accented look, a more professional look. Although this shade is not legal for the front windows in many states, it is probably the most popular shade chosen for the driver and passenger windows.

Shade 50%

Very Light shade. This shade is most popular for people who do not wish to view shaded glass on their windows but require tinted film for the U.V protection.

Shade 70%

Ultra Light Film Shade. Each State has its own laws as regards what shade of window film is legally allowed for the driver and passenger windows. Conduct a search on Google for your local Highway Patrol website for recommended shade. Your local tint shop should also be knowledgeable on what film shade is legally allowed for your vehicle front windows in your particular state.
