This little job showed up Saturday. RV’s, boats, tractors, dozers, graders, excavators, cranes, backhoes, combines… bring me something I haven’t done! Have a 1950 Double Decker bus from London? Sorry, I tinted one of those in 1996.
If your vehicle has the privacy glass option like many SUV’s and pickups, those windows will be around 20-25%.
There are slight variances from brand to brand, but on the whole most new vehicles leave the factory with around 75% light transmission.
So remember, when you add film to your car, the film darkness combined with the tint already in the glass is the final number of visible light transmission (VLT).
This front door on a Kia Soul is an example. The film was a 38% ceramic. The owner wanted to keep the front doors within the law for Indiana, which is 30% VLT. The rear windows are bone stock, and meter at 25%. Now they are only 7% darker than the fronts, and the whole vehicle is completely legal.
If you are an owner or operator of heavy equipment, you’ve probably experienced an uncomfortable day in the cab with the sun beating in and the air conditioner struggling to keep up.
Enclosed cabs need lots of windows for safe operation, but those windows let in a lot of heat and dangerous UV rays.
Bloomington Window Tint can solve both those problems with the wonder of ceramic window films. Ceramic film captures the infra-red part of the light spectrum, eliminates the UV, and allows 70% of the visible light to pass through. The film on the units in the pictures eliminates 92% of the infra-red pass through. It’s the highest heat reduction film we have, even limo black film does not reduce as much heat.
Keep the cab cool and your operators safe from damaging UV rays with products from Bloomington Window Tint such as Global Ice-Cool 70 ceramic film.
We’ve had two 80% ceramic film installs this week. Do you know somebody who would like to be protected from the sun’s heat and UV, but doesn’t want their windows darkened? Ceramic 80% film is the perfect solution. It reduces 75% of the infra-red, 99% of the UV, but lets through 80% of the visible light.
