The top 7 reasons why window film is a perfect partner for your car...

There are many reasons to tint your vehicle, including protection from harmful rays, safety and privacy. Window film can even help protect the investment in your car. 

Listed below are the top seven reasons that most people choose window film to protect themselves and their car. 

1. Driving comfort and energy savings 

Window film is designed to reject and absorb the solar energy that heats up the inside of your car. With the right window film, your car can reject up to 61% of the solar heat. This reduces the need to use your air conditioning, thus lowering the load on an engine and improving miles per gallon.

2. Protection from ultraviolet radiation

The window tint specs are clear, window film blocks up to 99% of the harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun that can cause skin cancer.

Research shows that sun exposure in the car is particularly harmful because most of us don’t apply sunscreen. In Fact, all our window films are like applying a sunscreen with an overall amazing SPF rating of at least 285 or more.

3. One of The Best Reasons - Safer driving

Window film reduces the glare from the sun, snow and headlights, which can increase visibility to make driving safer. 

Without window film on your windows, the chances of an accident are greatly increased especially during winter months when the sun sets earlier and driving into the sun setting at a low angle can blind the driver.

Of all the "Reasons To Tint", we believe this is one of the most important.

4. Shatter protection

Once installed, window film helps hold glass together when shattered preventing dangerous shards from harming vehicle occupants in the event of an accident. 

If you are involved in an accident and your children are buckled into a car seat, shattering glass can blind them.

This makes tinting your windows one of the best reasons to tint!

5. Enhanced privacy

Tinting your vehicle can increase privacy and even help prevent theft by reducing the outside view of possessions inside the car. Window film is also far less expensive than privacy glass. Different films can be applied to back and side passenger windows to increase their privacy while using different films on the front windows to preserve the driver’s view.

Note: All window films must be applied in accordance with local tint laws

6. Protecting your investment 

The combination of heat rejection and UV protection can prevent sun damage to your car’s interior, protecting upholstery and vinyl from cracking and fading, maintaining the interior of your car longer. 

7. Customize your look

Window film can give your car a customized sleek look. Since Solar Gard window film comes in a variety of shades and colors, you can customize your car with the appearance you desire while gaining all the other benefits.
