Halcyon solar control shades are the perfect solution for windows that you love to look out, but need sun control on. These shades provide up to 83% solar energy rejection. And for those days you want the sun to warm you up, roll them up!
Closed cell spray foam insulation installed today. Thanks to http://roseandwalkersupply.com/ for doing a great job. Radiant heaters going in soon so I’ll be able to “bake” the tint after install to accelerate drying time in the colder months.
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.
Are minivans cool? This one is, especially on the inside.
With 5% film on the rear sides and back window (30% on the fronts), the kids strapped into their seats will enjoy complete protection from UV rays, won’t be getting sweaty in their seats, and be able to see their device screens much better for no complaints travel.
The factory privacy glass that comes on the rear windows of SUV’s, trucks, and minivans does NOT provide complete UV protection. It’s only good for around 50-60% reduction. A window tint film of any shade (even clear film) reduces UV rays by 99%.
This BMW 335i is on the way back to it’s owner with a 30% front, 20% back tint. How did it’s previous owner drive 130,000 miles without tint? ( I forgot to take pics at the shop so I stopped at a Kroger lot. )
This 2002 Honda Accord had some film that had long run past it’s useful life.
Does your vehicle need a tint refresh?
Old film isn’t just unattractive, it can be be hard to see out of. We stripped the old film, and installed fresh 30% on the fronts, 20% on the rears and back. Full re-tints on most cars are $250. Call, message, or text me for full details.
