Eclipse Tinting – The Best Vehicle Tinting Professionals

Tinting the windows and windshields of your motor vehicle isn’t just an aesthetic feature; it has many practical benefits as well. You can enhance your driving experience with window tinting. Tinted glass can make your travels more comfortable and even healthier and safer. The experts at Eclipse Tinting can install the right vehicle glass tint that will work best for you and improve your ride.

Car Window Tinting Increases Your Privacy

One of the most common reasons why people tint their vehicle is for privacy. Tinting your vehicle prevents (to a certain degree) people from outside of your car and other drivers from looking into your car. It’s actually a great way to make potential thieves think twice about their act. Leaving an exposed cell phone or a laptop on your back seat is often just inviting people to steal it. By tinting your windows you’ll feel at least a bit safer knowing that any valuables in your car aren’t as easy to see.

Block Harmful UV Rays With Auto Window Tint

It’s no secret that being directly exposed to sunlight isn’t a very good idea. Our quality tinting films for your car can block 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays and keep your eyes and skin protected while driving. Driving in direct sunlight can even expose you to sunburns so make sure you keep your sunglasses on and use one of our window tinting films for protecting other parts of your body. It’s especially important if you suffer from any kind of sun allergies or other skin conditions.

Auto Glass Tinting Reduces Heat Inside Of Your Car

Our tinting films make the inside of your car cooler. With warm days in Hawaii all year long, tinting your vehicle reduces heat generated by direct sunlight, which will benefit the inside temperature of your car. Auto window tinting can reduce the heat in your car by up to 70%, which will result in increased fuel efficiency since your air conditioning won’t have to work so hard to keep your car cool.

Auto Tine Will Protect Your Upholstery and Interior of Your Vehicle

The heat and UV rays from direct sunlight can turn your upholstery into a mess in a few short years, but this can be highly preventable. Our vehicle tinting films can keep your car’s interior from getting hot enough to warp, fade, or crack, and block up to 99% of harmful UV rays from entering. By protecting the upholstery and interior of your vehicle, it helps increase the resale value should you decide to sell it.

Tinting Can Prevent Glass From Shattering

In case of a flying object or car accident, the tint film can also protect your windows from shattering all over yourself and your car. The film usually holds the little pieces of the glass together even after the window breaks. In the event that you ever find yourself in an accident, you’ll definitely be glad you had tint applied. Broken glass can get in your eyes or scratch your skin, so it’s definitely something to consider as well.
