Auto Tint Keeps Cars -- and Drivers -- Young
Admit it. You like looking good in your car. But down the road of life, that same sun that feels so good on your face could lead to rough, patchy skin and even cancer.
Frequent drivers receive heavy doses of UVA radiation to the left side of the body, according to the The Skin Cancer Foundation website (SCF). Not only can this cause you to age prematurely, it means you'll age faster on one side.
And your skin isn't the only material damaged by UV. Solar radiation can crack, fade and ultimately disintegrate the leather, vinyl and polymers that make up your car's interior.
To keep your skin and upholstery looking fresh without expensive retrofitting, consider auto tints from Solar Control Films Midwest.
In addition to blocking over 99 percent of UV radiation, auto tints reject 18% to 65% of the solar energy that strikes your vehicle's windows. Reduced heat gain means a cooler ride, less strain on your air-conditioning and better power and gas mileage.
Many auto tints also cut glare, which improves driver safety in bright conditions. Contrary to popular belief, vehicles with tinted windows can be driven safely in the dark.
Solar Control Films Inc. offers a variety of auto tints for every taste, including shatter-resistant safety films and nonmetallic films that won't interfere with GPS units, satellite radios or cell phones.
Most auto tints are lifetime guaranteed not to bubble, delaminate, crack, peel or discolor. Because auto tint regulations vary by state, consult your dealer before installation.
Its important to check your local tint laws for which type of automotive tint is legal in your state. You will find most states allow darker window film on the rear window as well as the rear side windows. The front windshield and driver and passenger windows usually require a lighter film by law. The front windshield is usually the one that is allowed no tint at all.
If you think about this from a logical point of view it makes sense that any window that is essential for driver's to get good visibility of the road will need lighter to no film at all.
We do carry some automotive films that while blocking out UV rays do not darken the windows at all. For more information check out our section on ceramic film.
