With all the varieties of window tint on the market, it can be daunting to find the right one for you. Here is some information to help you get started.
Window tints are some of the simplest, most beneficial, and most cost-effective aftermarket vehicle accessories. With quick turnaround times from experienced shops, an application of window tint can completely transform the UV control, heat control capabilities, and aesthetic of any vehicle.
Regardless of if you’re rocking a beloved beater or an out-of-the-box brand new model, there is a variety of window tint that is right for you. While the popularity of window tint is exploding, so is the general confusion about varieties and options. Many people are under the false impression that window tint only comes in one variety, and you need to take it or leave it.
The truth is that window tint technology has improved hugely over the past decade, and continues to improve every day. This has resulted in more choice for consumers, enabling you to get the exact mix of performance characteristics that you desire.
What Does Window Tint Do?
The two biggest priorities for any driver are keeping occupants safe and protecting the vehicle itself. Sunlight is a hazard that is often ignored, even though it presents a constant threat to your safety and your vehicle’s wellbeing.
Too much sunlight can be overwhelming, and the glare caused by reflected light off of wet roads or the windows of passing cars or buildings can blind drivers at the precise wrong moment. Have you even crested a hill and been blinded by the sun as it sits low in the sky? Window tint can protect you from this problem once and for all.
Window tint will also reject UV rays that enter through your vehicle’s windows. Most skin cancer of the face in North America occurs on the left side of the body, and this is because that is the side of the body that is exposed while we drive. Heat rejecting window films let you keep the windows closed and block UV rays to keep occupants safe.
Which Tint Is Right For You?
The explosion of window tint choices is a boon for drivers, as it allows you to get the exact combination of performance and aesthetics that you desire. However, it can also make it confusing.
If you like the sleek look of dark window tint and are on a budget, something like Autobahn Black is perfect for you. Dyed films can give you a deep and dark appearance while remaining budget friendly. However, if you aren’t a fan of the blacked-out look, and/or you demand the highest performing films on the market, then you should take a look at Autobahn Air Ceramic, Autobahn Black Ceramic, or Autobahn Ceramic i3. The heat rejecting capabilities of these ceramic films are exponentially more than their dyed counterparts, while giving you the opportunity to find the exact shade that matches your dream-car vision.
These are just two examples of the different options available to modern drivers. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us with your questions, we’re always happy to chat about what’s new.
