Automotive Window Tinting

About the service

Automotive window tinting involves applying a thin film to the windows of a vehicle to reduce the amount of visible light, infrared radiation, and ultraviolet (UV) radiation that passes through the glass. This film is typically made from polyester or a similar material and can be tinted to different shades or colors. In Minnesota, window tinting is a popular option for many vehicle owners, as it offers a number of benefits.

The Styles:

There are several types of window film available for automotive use. Here are some of the most common options:

  1. Dyed Window Film: This type of film uses a layer of dye to absorb heat and reduce glare, making it a cost-effective option for improving comfort and privacy in your vehicle. The issue with this film is that it is prone to fading. Sun Control of Minnesota DOES NOT offer this film, as we cannot guarantee longevity.
  2. Metalized Window Film: Metalized film reflects heat and blocks UV rays, making it a popular choice for improving energy efficiency and protecting your skin and upholstery from sun damage. This is the standard film we provide.
  3. Ceramic Window Film: Ceramic film is a high-end option that uses ceramic particles to block UV rays and reduce heat while allowing for maximum visibility.

The Benefits:

One of the primary benefits of automotive window tinting is increased privacy. With tinted windows, it is more difficult for people outside the vehicle to see inside, which can make passengers feel more secure and reduce the risk of theft. Additionally, tinted windows can help to reduce glare from the sun or other vehicles, making it easier and safer to drive.

Another key benefit of window tinting is improved comfort. Tinted windows can help to reduce the amount of heat that enters the vehicle, which can be especially important during hot summer months. This can help to keep the interior of the vehicle cooler and reduce the need for air conditioning, which can save money on fuel and reduce emissions.

In addition to these benefits, automotive window tinting can also help to protect the vehicle and its passengers from UV radiation. This type of radiation can cause skin damage and increase the risk of skin cancer, so reducing exposure can be important for overall health. Additionally, tinted windows can help to protect the interior of the vehicle from fading and damage caused by UV radiation.

Legal Requirements

These requirements are designed to ensure that vehicles are safe and that drivers have adequate visibility while on the road. In Minnesota, the legal requirements for window tinting depend on the type of vehicle and the location of the windows.

It is important to note that these legal requirements apply to all vehicles, but there are medical exemptions. In order to obtain a medical exemption for window tinting, an individual must have a signed statement from a licensed physician stating that the individual has a medical condition that requires a specific degree of window tinting. This statement must be carried in the vehicle at all times.
