There’s nothing quite like being behind the wheel of your car. But while you’re out on the road, you want to do everything you can to keep you and your passengers safe. When most people think of car safety, they might think of seat belts or obeying traffic warnings. What many drivers don’t realize is there’s one more way they could protect themselves and their passengers that is often overlooked: ceramic automotive window tinting.


At Sun Control of Minnesota, we provide a wide range of cosmetic auto services including automotive window tinting. Here’s how automotive window tinting can keep you and your family safe while you’re out on the road.


1.      Glare Reduction

Glare from the sun is a common cause of mistakes while driving. Here in the Midwest, we know all too well the dangers that the bright glare of the sun can cause when it reflects off the snow in the winter. Summer sun can also be dangerous. It’s hard to see the road with the sun in your eyes. But automotive window tinting reduces some of the sun's glare so you or your teen driver can be safe behind the wheel.


2.      Glass Integrity

Despite your best efforts, there’s always a chance that you could be involved in a vehicle collision. If the windows on your vehicle are shattered by the impact, you or your family could be seriously injured. However, 3M window tinting can help your window retain its integrity upon impact and hold together even if shattered. That’s because the adhesive is incredibly strong, holding the glass together even when it’s been impacted.


3.      Reduced Heat and UV Rays

Heat from the sun can take its toll on your passengers when you’re stuck in traffic. Even with your car’s AC on, that heat from the windows can hit you at full force, which can cause discomfort, headaches, and even skin damage. Ceramic window film rejects approximately 53 percent of incoming heat and 99 percent of UV rays coming into your vehicle. Crystalline rejects up to 60% of solar energy and up to 97% of heat-producing infrared rays coming into your vehicle. This light window tint rejects a high amount of heat, meaning you'll have a more comfortable ride.
