Everyone has at least one reason for wanting their car windows tinted but deciding on exactly what to get and who to choose install it can get a little tricky. In Nevada, one of our biggest factors for deciding to tint is simply another attempt to do everything within our power to beat the summer heat, while others lean toward privacy reasons for wanting darker tint. From various shades & hues to the laws dictating what you can & cannot have, you have a couple of choices to make before you make this move.
Welcome to the Dark Side
The shade, or darkness, of tint is measured by the percentage of Visible Light Transmission (VLT%) & in Nevada this percentage is measured the overall visible light that is allowed through the combined factors of the glass & tint together. Most manufactures classify 5% VLT & lower to be ‘limousine tint.’ In the LAs Vegas & Henderson areas the front passenger windows there must be more than 35% VLT while the back windows can be the darkest shade you desire – but you must have dual side mirrors if the back glass is tinted. The state only restricts Red/Amber hue but they do require all tint manufacturers to certify all of their film, so it’s best to do a little research before selecting an installer.
And the Award for Best Film Goes to…
Choosing a shade & color are just two of the selections you have to make for your new window tint. There are also several types of film to meet your needs, such as; Basic Film, Dye/Metal Film, Carbon Film, & Top Quality Carbon Film. Of course a couple of the options are less expensive and will still reduce heat and limit the fading of your upholstery, but they will also generally have to be replaced again within just a few short years.
