3 Top Tips To Help Protect Your Car Window Tint

Once you have installed one of our pre-cut car window tinting kits from www.window-tint.co.uk, it is important to continue to look after the tint to ensure its ongoing durability and quality. We have put together 3 top tips to help you to continue to care for your car window tint.

Tip 1: ¬†Ensure that the tint has completely dried out before rolling the windows up or down. This will prevent unnecessary damage to the film and help to prevent any peeling. It’s important to remember that tinted windows can take up to 3 to 5 days to dry fully.

Tip 2: ¬†Be careful when cleaning your tinted windows. Even after they have properly dried, we recommend using a soft paper towel and a mild cleaning formula that doesn’t contain any ammonia in order to keep your car windows clean.

Tip 3:  Be mindful of where you park your car as prolonged exposure to the sun and UV rays can compromise the durability of your window tint. You should therefore try to park your vehicle in a garage or shaded area whenever possible.

Our Top 5 Car Shows

Here at www.window-tint.co.uk we’ve put together a list of our top 5 car shows. In no particular order, they are as follows:

SEMA

1) The SEMA Show has to be our favourite car show. It is held each year at the Las Vegas Convention Center in America, and in 2016 attracted over 60,000 domestic and international buyers. This year the Show takes place on October 31st – 3rd November. As well as providing great network opportunities and the chance to witness new product demonstrations, there is also a detailed programme of educational seminars taking place over the week. However, show is a trade only event and unfortunately is not open to the general public.

LondonMotorShow

2) The London Motor Show is another big one. It is held this year at Battersea Park between Thursday 4th and Sunday 7th May. Great for a family day out, there is lots to do, with entertainment such as virtual reality racing and full motion simulators. There are also celebrities such as Nigel Mansell who talk to fans and signed lots of autographs! This year there will be over 150 new vehicles on display, as well as various industry and guest speakers.

3) Automechanika, Birmingham is the UK’s leading exhibition for the automotive aftermarket and supply chain. This year, the event is set to be around 70% bigger than in 2016, with more than 800 exhibitors on display at the show. There are educational seminars here too, covering a wide range of topics that are relevant to industry professionals. The dates for this year’s exhibition are 6th – 8th June.

Frankfurt

4) The Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany takes place this year from 14th – 24th September, running every alternate year with the Paris Motor Show. It is organised by the German Association of the Automotive Industry and is the home motor show of the German car manufacturing industry. Massive names such as BMW, Volkswagen, and Mercedes all make regular appearances at the show.

Carfest

5) CarFest North and South. With a festival in the North in Cheshire at Bolesworth Estate from 28-30th July, and one in Hampshire at Laverstoke Park Farm from 25th-27th August, Carfest is another great family day out. With music from groups such as Manic Street Preachers, Dodgy and Rick Astley and with a large food fair, there really is something for everyone. CarFest is a big supporter of BBC charity Children in Need and has raised £7.4 million for them so far.

A Beginner’s Guide To Car Body Types

In case you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by the many different car body types out there, we’ve listed below some of the more common ones below to help you decide which one would be the best option for you.

MPV – Multi-Purpose Vehicle

A multi-purpose vehicle is a practical vehicle that often appeals to families and those who are looking for more space generally. The body of the vehicle often resembles a van and has both rear side doors and rear side windows.  There are often three seat rows which can seat up to seven people or more.

Example of a MPV: Ford Galaxy

FordGalaxy

 

SUV – Sporty Utility Vehicle

A sporty utility vehicle sits higher off the ground and often look big and chunky, with lots of power and cargo capacity. They differ from 4×4 vehicles as they are more suited to roads and city living rather than off-road. Their comfort and stability make motorway speeds easy and the light controls make city driving easy.

Example of an SUV: Range Rover Evoque

RangeRoverEvoque

Hatchback

The hatchback is the largest option before moving up to a saloon. The whole rear end opens to allow access to the boot.  It often has a sloping back with a hinged rear door that opens upwards , and the boot lid and windscreen are one piece that move simultaneously.

Example of a hatchback: Volkswagen Golf

Saloon

The saloon can come in all shapes and sizes, and consists of a boot is separate from the car’s passenger compartment. The legroom in the cabin is often roomier than in a hatchback, and it has a fixed roof that is full height up to the rear window. The saloon is one of the most common body styles of the modern car.

Example of a saloon: Audi A4

audia4

Coupe

Often sporty and with a sleeker profile than a saloon, particularly at the rear, the coupe often has 2 doors instead of 4. Some have a rear bench but this is generally only suitable for small people on small trips. The desirability factor of the coupe means that it can often cost more than the practical cars that they are based on.

Example of a coupe: Peugeot 407

peugeot407

Convertible

Put simply, a convertible is a coupe that has had its roof removed and replaced with a retractable cover. Sometimes called a cabriolet and sporty in style, it has a folding or retractable roof that can be hard or soft top. A convertible usually has 2 doors.

Example of a convertible: Mazda MX-5

mazdamx-5

Estate

An estate is usually based on a saloon or a hatchback but is longer in shape. Its rear window extends to the boot lid which allows useful extra cargo room.

Example of an estate: Volvo V60

Window Film = Improved Safety

One of the many benefits of getting your car windows tinted is improved safety.

Shattered car windows can be extremely dangerous to family, friends, pets or any other passengers travelling in your car, as well as to yourself. But window film helps prevent glass from shattering and so protects those in the vehicle from any potential flying glass shards. This is because the film is specially designed to keep glass from shattering.

Does Window Tint Successfully Reduce Heat In Cars?

caronfire2

Q: Does window tint successfully reduce heat in cars?

A: Yes!

Car window tint works by rejecting thermal rays from the sun that create heat whilst letting the wavelengths that create light pass through the window, dramatically reducing the heat (and therefore comfort) in the car successfully without blocking any light.

Although sunshades may be better at keeping the car dashboard cooler in sunny weather, it has proven that window tint is much more effective in cooling the car cabin, and at keeping it cool!

Experts have proven that window tint can reduce the heat in your car by up to 60%.
