Which window tint shade is the right choice for your vehicle?
Choosing the right tint shade can be tricky. Here are some things to ask yourself:
- Would this tint be for the look & style of your car?
- Is it to shield children or animals from things like heat & UV rays?
- Do you want keep valuables out of view?
From your answers to these questions our trained specialists are able to help you to choose the right shade. Below are the three main shades to choose from:
Light tint – This is a subtle tint offering protection from UV rays but allowing for total visibility even in darkness.
Medium tint – This is how many cars come out of the factory, it offers protection from UV rays, heat & also adds a little privacy.
Blackout tint – This tint is the most popular, it provides a guard from UV rays, heat and provides absolute privacy.
Which car windows can we tint?
We’re asked this question many times. Firstly, let us describe the way tint is measured.
The percentage produced for a tint defines how much of the light is let through. Therefore a 20% tint makes it possible for 20% of light to pass through.
The allowed legal limit on both the driver’s & the front passenger’s window is 70%. The windscreen is 75%. Meaning the glass at the front must let 70-75% of the light through any installed tint. The vast majority of vehicles the come from the factory today come with tinted glass that is already at (or close to) the 70-75% allowance. Although to some people this glass doesn’t seem to be tinted, it really is.
If you go ahead and get your front window glass tinted your penalties range from (click this link for details):
- A ‘prohibition notice’ banning your vehicle being used on the UK road network unless you strip the tint from your vehicle.
- A penalty notice and a summons by the court system.
In addition, something else to consider is the insurance on your car. By unlawfully tinting your front windows, you can invalidate your insurance.
It is also illegal to an illegally install tint to the front windows, with heavy penalties & fines. Vision Tints is a trustworthy, respectable and reliable company that all clients rely on and because of this we do not want to disobey the law. So we decided to not tint any front windows beyond the allowed limit.
We always test with a tint meter to make sure everything is legal when applying any tint on front windows.
We will happily tint any rear windows as dark as you wish, as there is no legal limit on rear window tints.
Which of the available tints do you install?
Not every window tint meets our standards! The types of window tint available are:
This is often found be the least expensive product on the market, it fades, bubbles, and will likely go a blue or purple colour after a while. It is quite poor, and we do not recommend it.
This tint is also often very cheap. It is regularly affected by the rear window heater lines, which cause it to bubble. It can also interrupt radio signals. This isn’t first class, and, will not last.
Carbon or Charcoal
Premium industry-standard tint. We choose to use this at Vision Tints, as it gives a great colour, its long lasting, is not affected by heater lines and doesn’t affect the radio signals.
The greatest tint available, provided as our premium service. It provides the best longevity/colour, the heater lines do not affect it, will not affect radio signals and provides the best UV/temperature protection.
All that being said, not all window tint manufacturers are the same, after many years of experience, we have selected what we believe is the best brand available, and what is more, it’s manufactured in the UK, meaning when you choose our services you’re supporting two UK businesses.
