And now, some amazing facts and history of window tinting…
Tinted windows aren’t the first thing that pops to mind when you think about limousines and office buildings, but they’re an integral part of both.
For limos, the obvious reasoning is that people who order limos would very much like to remain incognito, and thus hidden from view.
Office buildings may use the same reasoning, partially, yet in reality this has more to do with the other, deeper aspects of tinting glass panes, like energy efficiency and comfort levels.
Firstly, radiation. The sun, as beautiful as it may be, is in fact slowly grilling us with ultraviolet radiation – UV light. This UV light can cause a number of health problems when you’re exposed too much, with the effects being worse the lighter your skin tone is.
Secondly, heat. Sunlight, when penetrating car windows and the windows of office buildings, heat up the room – technically, this isn’t a problem because chances are you’re running air conditioning when things are getting too hot – but, from another viewpoint, the constant heat from the sun actually makes you waste energy trying to keep your office or car cool.
Window tinting lowers energy bills for homes and businesses alike.
Thus, tinted windows find their use.
Darkening windows first became popular sometime in the 60s, and since then, the various shades, application styles, and options have become incredibly numerous and increasingly advanced.
Window tinting, although definitely possible to do by yourself, is a specialized process that takes professionals and special equipment to do right.
A few ways you can do this…
You can stick an incredibly thin film onto glass with a specialized adhesive to tint the glass, or you can have the glass tinted while the glass is still being made.
You can also spray-tint the glass – and whichever option you choose, you’ve got countless shades and colors to go with.
(Interesting note: having the glass tinted during the creation process, dubbed OEM – Original Equipment Manufacturer – only lets you go for lighter tint shades, and costs an arm and a leg to replace if broken or otherwise damaged).
But, the reason why people don’t tint their windows too often isn’t necessarily because they like clear windows better – it’s because tinted windows are heavily regulated, and carry a lot of legal baggage.
Thus, all the paperwork and the differences in state laws and regulations when it comes to window tinting make the whole thing a lot less attractive. Some states, for example, only allow tinted windows that let through a minimum of 30% light – other states, need to have tinted windows let in as much as 75% light.
Look how dark this car’s windows are:
Trivia: What state is this car from?
So there you have it… some interesting facts.
What are the state regulations in Arizona for car window tinting, you ask?
Well, here you go. Check that page out for the in-depth laws. But just so you know, you can’t tint your windshield anywhere but the upper strip, and it has to be non-reflective.
Your front side windows have to let in 33%+ visible light.
Your back side windows and rear window can be tinted as much as you darn well please.
By the way, red tint is illegal here in Arizona.
If you’re looking to drastically reduce your home or business energy costs, you can safely tint at any level.
Here’s the cool thing, though: no matter how light you get your windows tinted, our technology still blocks 99% of all UV rays.
