Benefits of tinting your car’s windows


Tinting your car’s windows does more than enhance your vehicle’s appearance.

Tint is applied to a car window.

Window tint is often used to improve a vehicle’s aesthetic or greatly reduce incoming heat from entering through the vehicle’s windows, but there are other important benefits of window tinting that often get overlooked.

Glare reduction

Glare from the sun or headlights from other vehicles can potentially be dangerous as the glare they produce may block a driver’s view of the road, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle. Window tint helps prevent this hazard by providing often significant glare reduction, improving driver safety.


Whether you are looking to minimise those uncomfortable and unwanted gazes into your vehicle or help hide precious cargo, tinting your windows can help by providing additional privacy.


Window film can provide added security and deter break-ins as the film often makes entry into the vehicle through the windows harder due to the broken glass being held together by the film.


Window tint decreases the risk of injury in the event that a window breaks such as an accident, extreme weather or flying objects striking the glass. The tint holds the broken shards of glass together that may otherwise fly into the vehicle.

UV rejection

Just like wearing sunscreen or sunglasses when you are at the beach, window film can help protect both your skin and your car’s interior by providing 99% UV protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Interior protection

Prolonged exposure of the sun can not only damage your skin, but it can also damage your car’s interior. This is because your car’s interior is made with components that fade, discolour or crack over time depending on how sensitive the material is to sun exposure. Window film can help slow this breakdown, keeping your car looking brand new for longer.

Preserve resale value

 Tinting your windows aid in preventing interior damage from prolonged sun exposure. This protection can keep your car’s interior in better condition for when it comes time to sell which may preserve the resale value of the car and help it stand out when advertising.
