For many, tinted windows are best left to teenagers and those who would like to remain incognito. In truth, tinted windows serve a very important function in protecting you and your car from the damaging rays of the sun. Having tinted windows also helps conceal the contents of your interior from criminals. The film used for windows is a polyester substrate with a scratch-resistant coating on one side and a clear mounting adhesive on the other.
The benefits of tinted windows are huge. The sun can be intense in San Antonio in the summer. Proper window Tint can block 63% of the sun’s heat and a whopping 99.9% of damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays. Not only does tint protect the interior and upholstery of the vehicle, but it also protects your eyes from glare and eyestrain and your skin from sun damage. Window film also makes your vehicle’s glass safer by holding shattered glass in place.
Today’s window film can provide up to 63%* solar energy rejection versus untreated automotive glass. A cooler interior provides more comfort, and can significantly reduce air conditioning usage, thus extending the life of AC systems and improving gas mileage.
Automotive window film blocks 99% or more of harmful UV rays while also significantly reducing heat. Reducing these two primary causes of fading helps to protect and extend the life of all of your vehicle’s interior including seats, carpets, wood trim, and dashboard.
Diminish Health Risks
Exposure to UV rays from the sun is known to pose potential health risks for your eyes and skin. Window film provides an effective “sunscreen” for you against the harmful effects of the sun.
Cut Hazardous Glare
Glare from the sun or headlights at night can blind your vision when on the road. This dangerous condition can be greatly reduced by tinting your vehicle’s side and rear windows.
Increase Safety & Security
Thicker “automotive protection” films can provide an extra level of safety in case of an accident, and security for your possessions from smash-and-grab car theft.
There’s a variety of window film products to suit any type of car, truck or SUV. From virtually invisible films to darker colors, there’s a range of shades to give you the look you want.
