How it works
- You make a booking for an appropriate appointment time and place convenient to you.
- Our uniformed staff will arrive, only needing access to a power point.
- We then clean the car windows with 100% pure water to clear away any dirt or invisible debris before we tint them.
- We might need to detach the door cards to access the workings of the window. This is done to the best professional standard.
- Once the windows are tinted, we request you don’t use the windows for at least a week so that they can dry fully, this protects all the edges of the tint.
- We are then able to receive payment by, cash, card, or bank transfer.
What window tint shade is right for your vehicle?
Selecting the best tint shade can be difficult. Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Is the tint for style and looks?
- Is it to protect children or animals from UV rays or heat?
- Do you want cover up valuables from sight?
From your responses to the questions our trained professionals are able to help you to select the right shade. Below are the 3 main shades available:
Light tint – This is a subtle tint providing protection from UV rays but allowing for complete visibility even in darkness.
Medium tint – This is the same as the factory provides for many cars, it offers a safeguard from UV rays, heat & does add some privacy.
Blackout tint – This tint is the most popular, it provides a guard from UV rays, heat and provides complete privacy.
Which car windows are we able to tint?
We are asked this question many times. To start with, let us describe how tint is measured.
The percentage produced for a tint defines how much of the light is allowed through. So, 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 have to let 70-75% of the light through any installed tint. The vast majority of vehicles made today come with tinted windows that are almost at (or close to) the 70-75% maximum. Even though to some people it doesn’t look tinted, it really is.
If you go ahead and have your front window glass tinted your penalties range from (click this link for details):
- A ‘prohibition notice’ stopping you using your vehicle on the UK road network unless you have the extra tint removed.
- A penalty notice and a summons by the court system.
Also, something else to consider is the insurance on your car. By unlawfully tinting the front windows of your car, it’s possible to invalidate your insurance.
It’s also against the law to an illegally install tint to a cars front windows, with large fines and penalties. Vision Tints is a reliable, trustworthy & respected business that all customers rely on and because of this we choose not to disobey the law. So we decided to not tint front windows beyond the allowed limit.
We use a tint meter to make sure you are correct when installing 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.
What type of tint do you use?
Not every window tint was created equal! The types of window tint available are:
This is often found be the least expensive tint available to the market, it bubbles, fades, and often goes a blue or purple colour after a while. Its really not great, and we do not recommend it.
This tint is also cheap. It is damaged by the rear window heater lines, making it bubble. It can also interrupt radio reception. This isn’t a premium tint, and, won’t last.
Carbon or Charcoal
Top industry-standard window tint. It is what we usually use 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 best tint money can buy, provided as our premium service. It provides great longevity/colour, the heater lines do not affect it, doesn’t affect radio signals and gives the most temperature/UV protection.
All that being said, not all 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 is manufactured in the UK, meaning when you choose our services you are actually supporting two UK companies.
