Clear Window Tinting in Chicago: Get the Invisible Protection

Clear window tint — one of the most commonly used car window tinting services. It doesn’t darken car interiors, but provides effective UV-blockage, as well as protection from scratches and other damages. From this article you will find everything that you need to know about clear window tint and choose the right options for you here in Chicago.

4 reasons to install clear window tint

   1. Protection of your health

Clear window tint protects the driver and the passengers from harmful ultraviolet rays and infrared radiation. UV-rays can cause skin cancer, and if you spend a lot of time in the car and drive kids, the auto tint — is the first thing you have to think about.

   2. Extra safety for the ride

You never know what exactly can happen on the road: even if you drive very carefully, a small road chip can cause your window to crash. Better to add a layer of extra safety to your ride and get clear window tint installed. Not only does it protect you and your passengers from the sun rays, but also gives window glass the extra strength. 

And for even more protection, install a windshield tint strip and be free from glare and the direct sun. 

   3. Extended lifespan of the upholstery

Over time the damaging UV rays and the heat can damage your car upholstery — colors fade, and the expensive materials such as leather and wood deteriorate. Window tinting helps to prevent this degradation. Moreover, expensive equipment inside a car doesn’t appreciate being baked in the sun. Tinting your windows also helps to prevent electronic devices from overheating, extending their lifespan too.

   4. Perfect condition of the windows

By installing this high tech transparent film to your car windows, you are basically buying yourself insurance from damage, but for much, much cheaper.
