Most window films have a scratch resistant coating on the outside surface of the film. This scratch resistant coating is used to protect the film from normal wear and tear. However, care and caution must still be used in cleaning the surface of the glass on which film has been applied to reduce possible damage:
We recommend that you allow 48 hours before opening windows. This is to allow the film to dry and gives the adhesive time to cure.
Yes, all rear hatch & saloon windows are fitted with one piece of tint, skillfully heat shrunk to shape.
No, we do not fit films to any vehicle windscreens unless there is a medical exemption. Sun strips can be applied to the top of your windscreen as long as they do not obstruct your vision in any way.
We will normally need your car for a day, but it depends on size of your car and how many windows you want tinted.
Yes! However, always go to a qualified and professional window tinter for a safe, clean and clear removal.
Tinted vehicle windows: the law
The rules for tinted front windscreens and front side windows depend on when the vehicle was first used. There are no rules for tinting the rear windscreen or rear passenger windows.
Vehicles first used on 1 April 1985 or later
The front windscreen must let at least 75% of light through and the front side windows must let at least 70% of light through.
Vehicles first used before 1 April 1985
The front windscreen and front side windows must both let at least 70% of light through.
Penalties for having wrongly tinted windows
It's illegal to fit or sell glass (or a vehicle already fitted with glass) that breaks the rules on tinted windows. The police or the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) vehicle examiners use light measuring equipment to measure window tint.
Yes, we guarantee the film for as long as you own your vehicle.
Most cars have a series of ceramic raised dots known as dot matrix around fixed windows. This causes the film to sit slightly proud of the glass but this is nothing to worry about. It all depends on the thickness of the dot matrix, which will vary depending on the make and model of the car. After a few days, when the window film has dried, you can simply take a finger and run around the edge on the inside. This can help to perfect a job around the dot matrix areas.
