Protect Yourself with Window Tinting

Think window tinting your vehicle is only for people who want to stand out from the crowd? The fact is auto tinting is also for anyone who wants to keep themselves, their family, and their valuables safe. It may seem only people who are concerned with vehicle appearance and performance would invest in tinting their car windows, but auto tinting is also an investment in protection and piece-of-mind. How can this be?

UV Rays & Your Car

UV rays are extremely damaging to human skin, and put you in danger of getting skin cancer when you are exposed over the long term. You aren’t safe from UV rays in your vehicle behind standard windows. Getting your car windows tinted with a solar control film can block up to 99.9% of UV rays, shielding you and your passengers from long term UV exposure which could lead to skin cancer. In addition, blocking the sun’s rays means auto tinting can also significantly reduce your vehicle’s interior temperatures creating a more comfortable ride and protecting against heat exhaustion.

Another reason to purchase auto tinting is it protects you and your passengers from injury in the event of a car accident. Window tinting film can provide a strong, protective barrier between you and the glass, which can be a lifesaver in the event of an accident. This is because unprotected side windows can easily shatter, projecting glass shards into the car and creating openings where other debris can get in or out. When a window is tinted, the window may still break, but the glass fragments will adhere to the film, shielding everyone from flying shards of glass, accident debris, and from the possibility of a being thrown from the car through the opening of a shattered window.

One more factor to consider is auto tinting can also protect you from theft. A thief can smash your unprotected car windows and steal your possessions in less than three seconds. When you have auto tinting, it will slow access to your vehicle by holding broken glass in place. This will increase the time it takes for a thief to break into your car, which makes it more likely the thief will call attention to themselves. In fact, having window tinting, it may even deter thieves from robbing your vehicle as they realize your car is not an easy target.

Protecting yourself and your family from UV rays, car accident injuries and acts of car theft are compelling reasons to get window tinting for your car. So what are you waiting for? Invest in the safety of you and your loved ones by getting auto tinting installed on your car windows. The piece of mind, potential health savings, and the protection of your valuable possessions is well worth the one-time cost of installation.
