Car Window Tinting – Does it have any practical use?
Here at AceTints we use multi-layered film which protects your vehicles interior from the damaging effects of the sun. Some of these benefits for Car Window Tinting are:
A 60% heat reduction can be achieved with window tinting compared to untreated glass. Window films can help keep your vehicle cooler even during the peak summer times by reflecting the heat from your vehicle.
Some of the films used can block up to 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. By blocking the harmful rays and with the heat reduction this can reduce fading of the seats and carpets in your vehicle.
Protection from UV Rays
With 99% of the UV rays blocked with some of our films this will help to protect your skin and your children’s. Our window tinting films offer better protection than stick on screens or blinds that only offer limited protection to direct sunlight and can easily be removed by the children.
Our window tints can help reduce the glare from the sun, headlights and reflective surfaces helping make your driving safer.
Added Privacy and Security
Car Window Tinting provides extra privacy from prying eyes and the window film can also hold the glass together if it has been broken or shattered in an accident.
How do we do it?
We apply a special film to the inside of the glass. Unlike cheaper window films on the market our film is bonded to the glass and we also offer a 5 year guarantee on our work.
Can we tint all the windows?
By law we are not able to tint the window screen of your vehicle. We also don’t tint anything darker than 70% on the front windows. You can read more on the legal requirements here.
What can we tint?
We can tint pretty much anything, if its glass AceTints can tint it! We offer car window tinting, home window tinting, office window tinting and more. We also offer Spi Vision headlight tinting for a more custom and cool design.

If you are looking to get Car Window Tinting carried out in the United Kingdom then you need to be aware of what the legal requirements are for doing so. It is also worth knowing the legal issues surrounding car window tints before visiting a company to have it carried out, even if your chosen company will have in-depth knowledge on the subject. Here are some of the Car Window Tinting Legal Requirements.
All of the law related to car window tinting can be found in the UK Road Vehicles (Construction & Use) Regulations 1986. The statute has been amended on occasion to include different regulations on how much light can be transferred through the car windows, but the base information can be found in this rather hefty piece of legislation. For a tinted window to be legal in the United Kingdom it needs to:
1) The car needs to be used on or after the 1st April 1985. This isn’t manufactured, but used. This shouldn’t be too much of a problem for most people as it is only really modern cars that you find getting a tint, therefore this aspect of the law is pretty redundant.
2) The amount of light being transferred through the windscreen must be at least 75%. Here at Ace Tints we are able to provide you with a tint that meets these legal requirements.
3) The side windows should allow at least 70% of light to be transferred through. Once again your chosen company should be able to provide tints that meet the legal requirements in the United Kingdom.
If your car does not meet these legal requirements then you will find that you will be breaking the law. There are a number of consequences for people that have illegally tinted windows:
a) The most popular of the ‘punishments’ is a stop and fine. This could go one of two ways; your car will be impounded which of course will end up being costly. Otherwise you could end up with a fine and told to return to a police station at a later date to confirm that the offending film has been removed.
b) Any accident where it could be reasonably inferred that the tint was to be blamed then you will find that you are much more likely to be blamed. If this happens then quite often you will find that your insurer decides that your vehicle insurance is not valid and therefore will not assist you in repairs too your vehicle.
It may be possible to get away with ‘illegally tinted windows’, however, do you really want to run the risk of it? Noticing illegally tinted windows is difficult for those that enforce the law, but if you continue driving with them you eventually be caught. Is it worth having illegal windows for nothing more than aesthetic purposes when a lot of financial burden can fall upon you? In most people’s opinions it really isn’t.
