Window Tint: Best Options for Window Protection
Tinting windows is a great way to protect your car’s interior and even make it more appealing. Window tint can prevent your vehicle from fading and keep those riding with you cooler during hot days, especially when combined with the use of window shades.
You can find window tint Watson la in varying shades and degrees of darkness depending on how tightly it fits into the body of your vehicle (or whatever else the tint covers). It will also depend on what purposes you want it for – keeping people out or keeping inside temperatures down – so consider this before buying any film for installation. Before we discuss all these options, let us first learn how to measure windows for best results:
- The length and width should be measured in inches, rounding down to the following whole number.
- If you are unsure how to measure for window tint, you can print out our “Measuring Guide” and cut it out until your design fits appropriately. Have a friend trace around the outline on your glass with a Sharpie marker for best results. Keep in mind that car manufacturers use different numbers when measuring their windows. For example, Honda’s measurements will not match up exactly with Toyota’s or Nissan’s when it comes to their front side glass–and even the rear side glass may be slightly different between makes and models.
- Next, decide what darkness shade would work best for your needs: 30% offers good solar protection but still allows UV light into your vehicle, while 20% tint will block out more UV light but still allow you to see through the film. Darker tints are great for privacy but are not good for letting heat or sunlight in.
If you have decided on a type of window tint, then it’s time to decide what kind of film to use. There are two main types of window tints available – metallic/metalized and dyed. Metallic/metalized is made from loosely woven metal fibers that offer excellent protection at their price range; however, since these films contain up to 75% metals (such as aluminum), they can be quickly shattered into tiny pieces if hit at high speed or pulled too tightly across the glass.
