For those people wishing to put film on their windows, pre cut tints are available. They do not require as much trimming down to size as the other types of film that often come in a roll. This type of kit has the basic sizes included for car windows, truck windows or windows of different sizes for the home.
They are available in different hues and will come in different types of VLT percentages. The VLT percentage is the amount of visible light transmission that is allowed through the film. This allows for the customer to receive exactly the amount of darkening that they want.
When selecting pre cut tints, it will provide a better fit with less wasted material. There is no need to buy an entire roll of film to cover only a few windows in a car, truck or van. Of course when purchasing an entire roll of film, it must be stored. This can prove to be inconvenient if one doesn’t have a lot of extra storage space. If the roll of film is not stored properly or used in a specific amount of time, it could end up becoming damaged or deteriorated to the point that it is no longer viable for use.
Another advantage with pre cut tints is that they take the guesswork out of fitting the film to the window or glass. Because the sheets are measured, all that must be done when fitting them to the window is to trim the small excess that is left. This excess is so that they can be lined up perfectly. The removal of the excess material can be done with a razor knife or a blade.
The kits are ideal for those who wish to do the work at home. They will include instructions as well as a list of tools that will be necessary for the job. This is helpful to someone putting this product on their car windshield or back glass because both of these glasses have curvatures. Being able to successfully navigate the curves will ensure that the fit is perfect. This is just another reason why a do-it-yourself project should include pre cut tints.
One of the biggest problems with buying a roll of film is that it is bulky and hard to handle. Sometimes when a sheet is sliced off, it is too big or too little. If it is too little, the entire sheet must be discarded. It is also problematic trying to get accurate measurements of the windows and then get those measurements done perfectly with the rolled sheets. Opting for pre cut tints is just the better solution, offering the installer less waste and less effort.
Everyone today is busy with projects, careers, family and extracurricular activities. Whenever doing something such as putting film on a window, they need it to be fast, efficient and correct the first time. By electing to receive the premeasured sheets instead of a roll, a lot of the work has already been done for the consumer. It will cut down on the time that it takes to complete the project, thus leaving time for other things in life.
