Does Window Tinting and Window Film have any Practical Use?
All of our installations we perform are with a multi-layered window film that protects your vehicle’s interior from the damaging effects of the sun. This has the following benefits:
Up to a 70% heat reduction can be achieved compared to untreated glass. Our window films will help your vehicle stay cool, even after hours in the blazing sun. It does this by reflecting the unbearable heat away from your vehicle.
Skin Protection from UV rays
Our window films block 99.9% of the sun’s UV rays. UV rays are the principal cause of skin cancer and premature skin aging. We all know how we must protect our children and pets from these harmful rays, but using stick-on screens and blinds that are only designed to limit the direct sunlight is pointless, therefore the harmful solar rays still get through damaging your families skin. Parents will know how children become restless and agitated when they are too hot in a car. Our films will keep your children cool and they can’t rip it off and throw it at the driver – unlike stick-on shields!
Reduce Glare And Driver Fatigue
Our window films reduce potentially dangerous glare from the sun, headlights and reflective surfaces. The reduction of this glare can actually make your driving safer.
Using our window film will block 99.9% of the sun’s harmful ultra violet (UV) rays. This, together with the heat reduction will help reduce the fading of seats and carpets. It prolongs the life of all rubber, wood, vinyl and leather inside your vehicle. It also helps to protect your dashboard, mobile, audio equipment and speakers.
Increase Safety and Security
Our window film will help to hold together broken glass if it is shattered in an accident. However don’t worry, it will not trap you in the car as it is very easy (and a lot safer) to push the glass OUTWARDS once it has broken.
Smash and Grab theft
Our Window film is a good smash and grab deterrent. These thefts are carried out by opportunist thieves who will expect the window to smash and fall into the car so they can grab the goods and be off down the road. Our window film will help stop this happening as if the window is smashed it will hold in one piece and no thief will hang around to keep trying to smash the window!
Our window tints provide an increased level of privacy from the prying eyes of thieves.
How’s it Done?
All of our window tints are installed on the inside of the cars glass. We only use the best window films on the market, therefore the window film will not peel off or delaminate like cheaper window window films. All of our installations are carried out by factory trained technicians who are trained on all of the up to date and best installation techniques.
Will the window tint and window film Scratch?
The answer to this is YES if it is attacked with scissors or a knife, but no customers are likely to do that!! All of our window films are made up of several layers. The final layer that is applied is an anti scratch coating which is very durable and is designed to withstand daily wear and tear and the constant up and down of the windows.
Are There Any Problems?
A lot of windows now have what is known as a DOT MATRIX around the outside edges of the glass and this can cause the window tint and window film to have a lighter appearance, but this is nothing to worry about and is quite normal, if you dont like the lighter look we can push it down a few weeks later once it has had time to dry. The only other problem is airborne dirt and dust. We obviously keep everything as spotless as possible, but short of working in a vacuum (not healthy) tiny bits of minute dust will settle on the glass as we lay the film, 99% of the time under normal conditions you will not even notice them. This is the reason we do not offer a mobile tinting service. How could anyone possibly do a clean job at the side of the road!
