Car Window Tinting Prices – What’s Included?
When the term “full tint” is used, it refers to the tinting of the side windows and rear screen of the vehicle. This does not include the front windscreen tinted, (Vic Roads regulations), does not permit this to be done. These prices are quoted based on your particular car. Glare strips across the top of your windshield will also attract a small additional cost due to the extra time required to produce and install them.
How Does Window Film Make Your Car Cooler?
Car Window tinting is created when the solar film is bonded onto a piece of window glass. Tinting film is usually made from the clear polyester film with a very thin and even layer of tinting agents such as carbon and/or metals deposited onto the film. Window films are applied on the inner surface of the Glass which also protects the film itself from flying debris outside the car. Window film doesn’t just block visible light. It also blocks harmful cancer-causing ultra-violet (UV-A and UV-B) rays as well as infra-red (IR) rays that cause heat to build up in your car; however, how effective a film is in blocking these rays depends on the type of film, the manufacturer, and the quality of installation….
State Window Tinting Regulations for Victoria
Australia, each state has regulations covering the type of window film that is allowed to be placed on registered passenger vehicles. Basically, the regulations do not allow very dark or highly reflective films to be placed on cars for safety reasons. In Victoria, the maximum allowable darkness for window film on cars can be not more than 35%-VLT.
What Does VLT Mean:
VLT stands for Visible Light Transmittance. This measurement refers to the amount of natural light that is able to pass through the window once a particular window tinting film has been applied to the glass of your car. VLT can be measured roadside by using a VLT card, but this is an approximate measure at best. A true and correct reading requires the use of an electronic VLT meter. If you are unsure about whether the current film on your car complies with the guidelines, or have been issued an infringement notice as a result of a roadside inspection and would like an accurate reading Northside Window Tinting has all the correct meter’s used to check this.
