There are many reason to consider car window tinting, but chief among them may be your health and safety. Sure, your leather interior will last longer and your dashboard will crack less, but the same UV rays that damages those parts of your car are just as hard on your skin. Window tinting and services such as a car or truck wrap can protect your health as much as your car’s looks.
Your windows act as a magnifying glass for the sun’s UVA rays, which is what causes car interiors to dry out and crack. Just imagine what those same UVA rays are doing to your skin. Studies show that over time, the sun’s UV rays can accelerate the aging process of your skin by more than seven years. Automotive window tinting, when applied by an experienced professional, will effectively block those damaging rays, reducing skin cell damage by more than 90% over time. By applying a car or truck wrap, you can effectively block 99% of the sun’s damaging rays.
Automotive window tinting is legal in all 50 states, but each state has its own regulations regarding the amount of tint allowed. By having your car wraps installed by an experienced professional, you can ensure that your tinting is within the letter of the law. You’re also far more likely to have better and smoother films when applied by a professional.
Current technology in window tinting is also far better than in recent years. Window tinting will no longer interfere with GPS, cell reception, or other technology within the vehicle. Older films were made with metal components, which could cause problems. Newer car and truck wrap providers are using a polymer that’s far thinner and contains no metal.
Window tinting looks good and makes good sense. But don’t try this at home! Leave the application of your protection film to a professional. It will look better, last longer, and you can be sure you’re getting the best and most current materials. You’re protecting the investment of your car, as well as your own health and that of your passengers. Your skin will thank you.
