Window Tint Can Protect Your Health
Window tinting refers to the process
of applying a transparent laminate
film to a vehicle's glass. When
people think about window tint for
their vehicle, often the first thought
that comes to mind is darkly tinted
glass. It is true that you can have a
dark tint-job done to your car, truck,
or SUV (within the limits imposed
by state law), but did you know that
there are window films containing
technology that can actually protect
your health? Over the last decade,
many improvements in window film
technology have allowed manufacturers such as 3M, Llumar, Huper
Optik, and others to create products
with incredible features such as
significant heat reduction, eliminating harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays,
reducing glare, and improving eye
health without having to use a dark
window film.

you feel the difference with these
better films. When you go from a
clear piece of glass to a basic window film and finally to a high-heatreduction window film, it's almost
like the heat lamp is turned off.
So, what does that mean in terms of

Significant Heat Reduction
One of the biggest benefits of a high
quality window tint is heat reduction. There are products on the
market that can block up to 97%
of the sun's infrared heat. Better
window tinting shops generally

practical use? We are affected more
and more by extreme heat as we
age. On a typical sunny summer
day we dread opening our car door
since we are going to feel that rush
of hot air. Now with a high-heat-

This is an incredible benefit
to everyone in the vehicle.
Unfortunately, skin cancer is affecting more and more people every
year. Adding a quality window film
to every piece of glass essentially

puts you in a bubble that protects
your skin. Your valuable BMW
interior is also protected from
fading and cracking, which is
another plus.
Glare Reduction
Have you ever driven on a dark, rainy
night when the glare from oncoming
traffic makes it almost impossible to
see? How about driving on a bright
day, especially in the early morning
or at sunset? What if you could add
a window film that could reduce glare
by 55%? Well, now you can. Pretty
cool, huh?
Eye Health
In several studies, tinted windows
have been shown to reduce eye
irritation in people with cataracts or
who have had cataract surgery. It
also helps reduce the eye strain and
headaches that come with it. I am
not a doctor, but the simple explanation is the tint helps stop the
breakdown of proteins in your eye,
thereby improving your health.
MS and Lupus Patients
Do you know someone who has MS
or Lupus? Studies have shown that
