Quick Guide to Window Tinting - Accurate Auto Body When you first think about vehicle enhancements for your car, window tinting might not be at the top of your list. Many people have the perception of window tinting being merely an aesthetic improvement for your vehicle. Wrong! In fact, there are many practical reasons why window tinting is an excellent idea for your vehicle. Accurate Auto Body offers you a quick guide to the top reasons why you should consider window tinting your vehicle.

What is Window Tinting?

All windows used in modern cars are coated with some degree of window tinting—the safety glass is coated with a treatment which prevents harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from entering the vehicle and damaging your skin. But tinting can also be added to your vehicle after the manufacturing process to further limit the light which can pass through the glass.

Improved Safety

Most people don’t realize this about window tinting, but it actually protects the glass from shattering in the case of an accident. Tinting applied aftermarket is a strong adhesive film which coats the glass evenly. Any quality tinting will actually be strong enough to hold the glass together even in the worst accidents. This means that instead of getting sprayed by hundreds of tiny pieces of glass, your window will crack, but remain intact. Phew!

Better Driving Conditions

Driving with the sun in your eyes is both annoying and dangerous. Instead of having to constantly put on and remove your sunglasses to adjust for road conditions, wouldn’t it be easier if your windows did the work for you? Window tinting prevents sun glare and shields your eyes, ensuring that you drive safely in all light conditions.

A Cooler Ride

We know what you’re thinking—most people install window tinting for the visual appeal to make their cars look “cool.” But window tinting actually has the added effect of keeping the inside of your vehicle cool during warm temperatures. With the correct window tinting, you can reduce the heat inside your car during summer months by up to 60 percent. This makes for a much more pleasant driving experience, and you’ll actually save money because of not needing to use your air conditioning as much.

Upholstery Protection

The sun’s rays are very powerful and will degrade the condition of your upholstery over time. Installing window tinting will significantly reduce the amount of harmful UV rays which are able to pass through the glass, protecting your vehicle’s interior for years to come!

As you can see, window tinting can have a large effect on the comfort and safety of your vehicle; it also makes your car look pretty awesome. Keep in mind that most states have laws which limit the amount of tint which can legally be added to your vehicle’s windows.
