Auto Window Tinting can protect more than your view … how can tinting your car reduce harmful UV ray impact and protect your body from the sun’s UV rays?
When you’re driving your car, you’re probably concerned with watching the road, observing other drivers, changing the radio, and getting the temperature and seat settings just right. Did you know that you should also be concerned with sun damage every time you get behind the wheel or get in someone else’s car?
UV rays don’t just affect us when we stand outside. If you’re spending a lot of time in your car, it’s time to look into window tinting to greatly reduce the impact of harmful UV rays. Window tinting is like sunscreen for your vehicle!

How UV Rays Can Damage Yourself and Your Car
UV rays reach us in the sunshine and on cloudy days, so complete protection is important. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, “the average American driver spends close to 300 hours a year behind the wheel.” That doesn’t include any time spent as a passenger.
UV rays have been directly linked to skin cancer due to prolonged sun exposure. Not only can the sun’s rays impact our skin’s health, it can also damage the inside of your car. In fact, UV rays can make leather interiors crack and fade.

While standard glass can block a minimal amount of UV rays, window film provides a high level of UV protection. This can protect not only yourself from rays, but also your car’s interior.
