Used by musicians, actors and actresses, and dignitaries of all sorts, window tinting has helps many people avoid the sun and limelight. But what about the general public’s use of window tinting? Well, there are many benefits of tinting your windows.
We use sunglasses on our eyes to help remove the glare and brightness of the sun distracting our driving, so why not use that same common sense in our vehicles? With window tinting, you will be able to look out of your vehicles without squinting or missing something in your way. Window tinting will shield your eyes from powerful glares as well as UV rays.
While window tinting is valued for giving famous people their privacy, it will also give you some as well. It is not only a great way to avoid people seeing into your vehicle, but it can help deter thieves from scoping your vehicle out. Window tinting is a great asset to businesses and commercial vehicles that need to have a laptop or other equipment in their vehicle. Tinting will allow you to leave your items within plain sight without having to worry about them being stolen.
Are You Sensitive to Heat?
Many of us have a hard time dealing with the heat of the sun beating down on us during the spring and summer months. If you have a hard time dealing with heat or burn easily, window tinting can help! It will help to make your car cooler by reducing the heat that is generated by direct sunlight. Window tinting can reduce heat in your vehicle by nearly 70 percent.
Keeps Glass from Shattering
One of the leading causes of harm in car accidents in shattering glass. Glass can cause cuts and injury during accidents and can be hard to clean up and restore your vehicle to normal. But with window tinting, the tinted film will help to keep the window together, even if it does break.
Maryland law differs from sedans to SUV and vans. No vehicle is allowed to have tinting on the top five inches of their windshield, metallic, or mirrored tinting. Sedans must have tinting that allows 35 percent of light into the vehicle from their side and rear windows. SUV and vans are allowed to use any darkness level on the back side and rear windows but must allow more than 35 percent of light into the front side windows.
Unlike Maryland, Virginia residents are allowed to have reflective tinting on both sedans, SUVs, and vans but it must be no more than 20 percent reflective. Only non-reflective tinting is allowed on the windshield and it is only allowed above the AS-1 line. Sedans must have tinting that allows more than 50 percent of light into the front side windows and more than 35 percent of light on the back side and rear windows. SUVs and vans are allowed to have any darkness on the back side and rear windows but must allow more than 50 percent of light into the front side windows.
