Plenty of people get their vehicle windows tinted every day, and it’s easy to see why. It offers the driver and their passengers a nice range of advantages.
If you’re on the fence about getting your own car some window tints, consider the following benefits in your analysis.
1. Skin Protection
Car windows themselves block out UVB rays pretty well. Windshields are also treated to help block UVA and UVB rays.
However, your side windows don’t block UVA. These are the rays that can penetrate deepest into your skin, leading to sunburns (or even skin cancer if pervasive enough).
Window tints can block out these rays, shielding everyone — especially younger children with sensitive skin — from the sun’s harmful rays.
2. Protects Your Interior
The sun’s rays also harm your interior. Sunlight can fade your dashboard and seats, making them look quite unsightly over time. The heat can also lead to cracks in these areas.
Sunlight can even lead to safety issues, such as damaging airbags and harming the weather stripping in your doors.
Again, window tints block much of the sun’s rays, so parking your car in the sun for long periods of time isn’t as much of a worry.
As the sun shines on your interior, it can make various surfaces quite hot. For example, you may burn yourself on a scorching steering wheel during a hot day. You or your passengers could burn themselves on their seatbelt’s metal components, too.
By putting some tints on your windows, you’ll keep things nice and cool inside. That also means you won’t have to wait as long for your car to reach a bearable or comfortable temperature once you start it.
4. Safety From Thieves
Thieves sometimes roam about parking lots — especially at night — looking for valuables sitting in the open inside cars. If you, for example, leave a laptop case on your car seat, a thief might break your window and take it.
Window tints can be especially helpful here. It’s already dark enough at night, so it’ll be quite hard for thieves to see through dark windows inside your vehicle. If you’re parked among many other cars, your chance of being targeted by thieves decreases.
Last but not least, tints can add style to your vehicle. Darker windows simply look cool on many types of automobiles.
