Windshield Protection Film
Windshield protection film has become popular with Chicago drivers due to its unique characteristics. Our windshield protection film installation service provides films from world renowned manufacturers and brands so you can be sure of getting the best quality product.
Why Use A Windshield Protection Film?
It has been proven that the sun’s infrared rays cause the temperature rise inside your vehicle while UV rays result in damage to your car’s upholstery. You can let a lot of radiation and heat inside your car even with your side windows tinted. We offer a wide selection of automotive windshield films providing an excellent protection against heat and UV rays.
Unlike films which are used for side window tinting, windshield protection film has to be clear enough to meet the visible light transmission requirements. According to the Federal standard, the film on the windshield cannot allow less than 70% of light. On the other hand, it is vital to reduce the heat and radiation entering your vehicle. With our windshield protection film, you can do both! Not only will you keep your interior from fading, but you can also benefit by lowering the temperature inside your vehicle and reducing the energy needed to run your car’s cooling system which will help to burn less fuel.
At our windshield protection installation service in Chicago, IL, you’ll get all the necessary assistance, including film samples. Note: the windscreen films we offer do not influence any electronic or radio devices inside your car. This means your GPS, radio, cell phone, etc., will keep working. Moreover, you also get a stylish anti-glare protection which increases the driver’s safety as well. The windshield becomes much safer in case of accidental damage or a road accident.
Many of our customers prefer partial windshield protection, also known as a visor strip. It is installed in the upper part of your vehicle’s windscreen and prevents excessive sun rays and glare. Additionally, it improves your car’s appearance. Visor strips may be tinted so you can always choose between a wide variety of colors and styles.
