Window Tinting

All rear windows in your vehicle can be tinted. However, there are strict limits in place regarding the windscreen and front side windows. We can advise you on the amount of tint that can be applied. Please see below for the regulations set out by VOSA.

What are the benefits?

Film Quality

Window tinting to the rear and rear side windows of a Honda Accord TourerAll our window tinting film carries a five year manufacturer-backed guarantee for colour stability. This means that if we tint the windows of your vehicle, it is guaranteed not to fade to any significant degree within a five year period.

Some cheaper films that are available that do not have UV blockers can fade in as little as twelve months. This then causes problems if you have a window on your car broken as it will not be possible to match a faded film and you either have to live with an odd coloured window or have the whole car tinted again.

All door glass that we tint will be removed, tinted, cured and bevel trimmed so you can't see where the film ends and the glass begins. This means no unsightly clear edges anywhere and you can use the windows straight away without the risk of the film catching and peeling off.

Window tinting cannot be done as a mobile service due to quality control issues. Even the slightest breeze will carry small particles of dust that will be trapped between the film and the glass and will compromise the quality of the job.

The Vehicle & Operator Services Agency (VOSA) regulations can be summarised as follows:

Motor Vehicles first used before 1 April 1985:

The windscreen and front side windows must allow at least 70% of light to be transmitted through them.

Motor Vehicles first used on or after 1 April 1985:

The light transmitted through the windscreen must be at least 75%. The front side windows must allow at least 70% of light to be transmitted through them.

If the glass is tinted to a point whereby it lets through less light than stipulated in the regulations, then the vehicle does not meet the legal requirements.
