F1 Car Window Tinting
Good Reasons To Tint Your Vehicle Windows

There are a number of good reasons why you would want to have your vehicle windows tinted. It’s not just about style and improving the look of your car, van etc.

Certainly, one of the main reasons customers choose us to tint car windows or tint van windows for them is for privacy.

Keeping cool is another good reason. Tinting rear car windows can help to reduce heat and glare for rear passengers, especially for babies and small children using car seats.

Car window tinting isn’t just about comfort though. We’re all so much more aware these days of the damage from powerful UV rays. Clear glass offers almost no protection from this. Whereas our window tints can significantly cut UV light by as much as 99%, helping reduce the potential health risks for adults, children and even your pets.

Better cooling means better economy too. During the Summer months we’re likely to use our vehicle air-con most of the time. As everyone know, this pulls power from your car and effects your fuel economy. The hotter your car, the harder your air-con has to work. With a car tinted windows you’re able to reduce the temperature naturally and this means less effort for your air conditioning.

If you’re thinking it’s a good idea to get your car or van windows tinted please contact us today and ask about our best pricing offers.

Does it have any practical use?
Heat Reduction

Up to 6% heat reduction can be achieved compared to untreated glass. Window films will help your vehicle cool more rapidly, even after hours in the blazing sun by reflecting the unbearable heat out of your vehicle

Reduce Fading

Using our film will block 99% of the sun’s harmful ultra violet (UV) rays. This, together with the heat reduction will help reduce the fading of seats and carpets. Rubber, wood, vinyl and leather inside your vehicle will have a prolonged life and your dashboard, mobile, audio equipment and speakers will be protected.

Protection from UV rays

UV rays are the principle cause of skin cancer and premature skin ageing, the film that we use blocks 99% of these harmful rays from the sun. Stick-on screens and blinds that are often used to protect our children and pets whilst inside a vehicle only limit direct sunlight; the harmful solar rays still get through. Our films will keep your passengers cool and unlike shades they can’t be ripped off and used as a projectile!

Reduce Glare & Driver Fatigue

The film reduces potentially dangerous glare from the sun, headlights and other reflective surfaces which can cause distractions, blind spots and fatigue. Sun strips on the front windscreen are also useful, especially in the winter to spring months, whilst the sun is low on the horizon resulting in potentially safer driving.

Increase Safety

It will help to hold together broken glass if it is shattered in an accident. However don’t worry, it will not trap you in the car as it is very easy (and a lot safer) to push the glass OUTWARDS once it has broken. In contrast it is very hard to push it inwards, like a thief would, if they were trying to break into your vehicle.

Increase Privacy & Security

Window tinting provides an increased level of privacy from the prying eyes of thieves. By making it harder to see inside your vehicle you’re reducing the chance of opportunist thefts.

**Regulations specify that the nearside and offside front door windows must permit a light transmittance value of at least 70% (for motor vehicles first used on or after 1st April 1085), with the front windscreen permitting a light transmittance of 75%. It is an offence to alter a vehicle in such a way that the use of the vehicle on the road would be unlawful.**
