While the windshield in your car protects you from the outside elements, the protection doubles up with window tinting. Tinting your car windows has advantages in different ways. The safety features and aesthetic effect of window tints make them a practical choice.
Window tints are easily available on the market. However, note that not all automotive films will do. It looks so cool to have dark tinted windows, and it adds an extra layer of privacy, but you have to know about the darkest legal tint as every state or territory practices specific tinting laws. Check the window tinting laws in your state before you go for a darker tint shade.
For instance in Australia, the legal Visual Light Transmission (VLT), which measures the light that passes through the window, is 35% for all side and back windows. This means the allowed available light that goes through the window and tint membrane is 35% and the rest is blocked. The allowed tint allowed for the windshield is 10%.
Every city has tinting regulations, so make sure you know the existing tinting laws in your area to avoid getting a tinting violation ticket. If you choose to have your car windows tinted, make sure you get it done right. While you can find tinting kits out there, it is best to look for a tinting specialist to install a window tint on your car. This way you know that the tint you choose follows the existing tinting laws in your area.
Many tint specialists offer mobile window tinting services. Mobile tinting allows you to have a tint job at your place. Instead of taking your car to a tinting shop, the shop will come to your location.
