Which window tint shade is the right choice for your vehicle?
Selecting the correct tint shade can be hard. Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Would this tint be for style and looks?
- Is it to protect children or animals from heat or UV rays?
- Do you want keep valuables out of sight?
Using your responses to the questions our fully trained specialists are able to help you to pick the correct shade. Here are the three main shades to choose from:
Light tint – This is a subtle tint providing protection from UV rays but allowing for total visibility even at night.
Medium tint – This is how many cars come out of the factory, it offers shelter from UV rays, heat and does add a little privacy.
Blackout tint – This tint is our most popular, it protects from UV rays, heat and offers absolute privacy.
Which car windows are we able to tint?
We’re regularly asked this question. To start with, let us explain the way tint is measured.
The percentage given for a tint defines the amount of light that is let through. So, a 20% tint makes it possible for 20% of light to pass through.
The allowed legal limit on both the driver’s and the front passenger’s window is 70%. The windscreen is 75%. Which means the front windows must let 70-75% of the light through any installed tint. The vast majority of cars made today come with tinted windows that are almost at (or nearly) the 70-75% limit. Even though to some people this glass doesn’t look tinted, it actually is.
If you go ahead and have your front window glass tinted your penalties range from (click this link for details):
- A ‘prohibition notice’ banning you using your vehicle on the UK road network unless you strip the tint from your vehicle.
- A penalty notice and a summons by the court system.
Also, something else to consider is the insurance on your car. By illegally tinting the front windows of your car, you may invalidate your insurance.
It is also illegal to an illegally install tint to the front windows, with hefty penalties & fines. Vision Tints is a reliable, trustworthy & respected business that all customers rely on and as such we do not want to break the law. So we decided to not tint front windows beyond the legal limit.
We test with a tint meter to make sure your car’s windows are correct when fitting 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.
What type of tint do you install?
Not all window tints meets our standards! The window tints available are:
This tends to be the least expensive tint available to the market, it fades, bubbles, and will likely go a blue or purple colour eventually. Its really not great, and we don’t recommend it.
This tint is also often very cheap. It is affected by the rear window heater lines, making it bubble. It can also disturb radio signals. This is not a good option, and, won’t last.
Carbon or Charcoal
Premium industry-standard tint. We choose to use this at Vision Tints, as it provides great colour, its long lasting, does not get affected by heater lines and does not affect the radio signals.
The finest tint money can buy, provided as our premium service. It has great longevity/colour, the heater lines do not affect it, does not affect radio and provides the most UV/temperature protection.
Having said that, not all manufacturers of tint offer the same, after many years of experience, we have chosen what we think is best brand available, and what is more, it’s manufactured in Great Britain, meaning when you hire our services you are actually supporting two UK companies.
