In case you are not a fan of tinted windows for cars, you definitely need to read this article. You would be surprised to know that tinted windows are actually one of the most important car accessories. In fact, I would term tinted windows as a car necessity.
Tinted windows/glasses are stylish and there is no questioning that fact. Different shades of tint make your car more appealing and eye catching. But apart from adding style to your vehicle, they do much more. Let’s discuss a bit about what Tinted Glasses or Tinted Windows mean and how they are advantageous for your car.
Windows are tinted by applying a dyed or colored micro-film coating to the interior of the glass surface. Usually the thin film is made from heat rejecting material and offers protection from sunlight, UV-Rays, Infrared Rays and other forms of radiation. A transparent film coating also does the same job but it may not be termed as a “tint” because it is colorless.
You might be interested to know that a security film may be applied to the glass as an additional coating that prevents it from shattering. This is a useful safety feature that prevents car occupants from harmful injuries due to scattering glass in car collisions.
Back to our topic, tinted windows can be a blessing for you and your car’s interiors. Sounds funny but good quality film coating if applied professionally, can save your car’s interiors and it’s occupants from a lot of harm due to sun’s heat.
Prolonged periods in the sun can deteriorate your car interiors including trims, plastic moldings, upholstery and seat covers. If you have those fancy leather interiors, you need to be more careful because constant exposure to heat can induce weathering in leather materials that may eventually result in cracking and fading of surfaces. Also, a car with leather seat-covers parked in the sun is good enough to cause serious burns if you sit inside without allowing it to cool.
Apart from guarding the privacy of the occupants, tinted glasses avoid break-ins and thefts because crooks can’t see inside your vehicle to know if there are any items inside worth stealing.
Tinted glasses keep your car-cabin cool and hence avoid the need for constant use of air conditioner while you drive. As you would know, less use of air conditioner means more fuel efficiency. Also, tinted mirrors maintain decent comfort levels inside the car-cabin by preventing harmful heat from entering inside. It helps you concentrate on the road instead of huffing and puffing about the weather.
Tinted glasses can prevent your skin from harmful effects of sun’s heat and radiations. In case your skin is photo sensitive, tinted windows are an absolute must for you. Tinted windows also prevent you from any glare emanating from roadside objects making your drive safer.
Investment in good quality window film or tinted glasses can be a great decision that might save you from a lot of needless expenditure later. Choose your tint level according to the laws and regulations in your state and your own comfort levels. Some tints are too dark and impair proper vision while driving in low-light conditions.
I am sure now you will definitely consider getting your car windows tinted and become a fan of it just like me.
