While it is possible to just install your own car window tinting as there are a lot of car accessories and hardware stores that sell window films to consumers, most car owners still prefer a professional car window tinting Karalee installer to do their cars for them as they are more up to date with the laws regarding the allowed darkness for vehicles. The States and Territories in Australia are not equal regarding window tints, so if you are thinking of a DIY, better consider it first.
Factory window tinting. Unlike the after-market window tinting, factory window tinting becomes a standard for almost any new car. They refer to this as a privacy glass and considered an extra-cost option. To stick to the law, these privacy glass has a VLT or Visible Light Transmission of between 15%to 26%.
After-market window tinting. After-market window tinting is what most car lovers give their car as they provide a lot of benefits to protect you and your car interior from the sun’s harmful UV rays. One common problem for those who wish to do this process themselves instead of just giving the task to a professional is that if they are not extra careful, it is more likely that they will create bubbles in the surface or just ruin the film altogether which they may have to call an installer in the end.
Most States and Territories in Australia also allow 35%, 20% or 15% on the front windows and rear windows while they do not allow tint to be applied to the windscreen. They do allow 10% visor strip of any colour on the windscreen though. If you are not familiar with the tinting laws and also not familiar with the proper installation of window films better just have a professional do it for you.
