Black window tint is great for a variety of vehicles including automobiles, RVs, and boats. It can also be applied to commercial office buildings or residential homes. This type of black shaded window tint can be custom fitted with many different levels of darkness to create the look that is desired for all types of glass surfaces.
This film's clarity has no haze, and offers unaltered visibility. The product will also reflect up to 99% of all ultraviolet rays. Both of these attributes have great benefits. Because of the clearness of the black window tint, there is no chance of experiencing blurriness or the unwanted fading to purple. This true black coloring offers just that. Furthermore, the UV protection will save the property owner from sun damage caused by these harmful rays. Most of the older varieties of dark colored glass film could fade quickly to a purple, and was then unable to protect as well against ultraviolet rays. These damaging sunrays will deteriorate the interior of a vehicle rather quickly. Over time, if a vehicle is left unprotected, the dash can crack, and the carpets and fabric seats can fade.
Residential homes and office buildings will suffer the same fate as a vehicle if the glass windows are not properly protected. UV rays will fade furniture fabric, ruin photographs and valuable paintings, and degrade the finish of anything that is made of wood.
Various levels of transparency or visible light transference are available to the consumer. Depending on the situation, black window tint can be purchased in a shade slightly darker than clear all the way up to what is known as a limousine tint. By definition, the visible light transmission is the amount of light that the barrier allows through the glass. The higher the number for the VLT (visible light transference) the more the light is allowed through the glass. For example, if the film type is listed as a 50, then the VLT will be at a 50. This is very light shading. If the film type is listed as a 5, then the VLT will be a scant 5, allowing almost no light in. Often times the higher the number the less solar energy is rejected. The lower the number, like a 5, then the higher the protection is against the heat from outside.
Most of the time, vehicles will have a 20% shading installed on the glass. Some states will allow more on the passenger side or the rear window. Each state will have a set of regulations that state how much VLT is allowed on each of them. Certain types of cars may have exceptions to those regulations. An example of that would be adding a black out glass film to the cars of a limousine transportation service.
Office buildings are often a candidate for this protective film. It will provide an ample amount of protection for the office equipment. This is especially true for businesses that have dozens of computers in use, and require a lower thermal temperature to keep them from overheating. The darker the black out window tint, the easier it will be to keep a consistent temperature in the office and protect valuable equipment.
