Ever wondered if auto window tint is right for you? The team at Simply Cool thinks it’s right for just about everyone! Here are a few benefits of auto tinting and how an installation can make your drive easier.

Helps Reduce Light Glare at Nighttime

If you’ve ever taken a long road trip and found yourself driving on a lonely highway, you may already be familiar with this situation. Let’s say you’re driving down that highway, and seemingly out of nowhere, a semi-truck—hi-beams on and all—passes by you. You feel blinded by the lights and the glare blasting into your car’s front window. It’s not a pleasant experience, but it’s one that most drivers are familiar with. Whether it’s just like the scenario above, or it happens to you while driving home from work when the Sun is hanging in the sky, nighttime glare is no joke. And it’s not only an annoyance; it can be downright dangerous.

Driving at night already poses its risks, and that’s why it’s at the top of our list when we talk about the benefits of auto window tinting to our clients. Utah traffic laws allow you only to go so dark with a window tint on your front, driver’s side, and passenger’s side window. We can make sure to use what’s legal and agreeable to reduce the glare of bright nighttime lights significantly. So, how can window tint make your life easier when you or a loved one is driving at night?

  • Can lessen the halo effect when driving
  • Can increase depth perception
  • Reduces glare from other vehicles

Helps Reduce Sunlight Glare in Daytime

Much like night driving, driving in the day poses its own problems. Think about how long your daily commute to and from work is. What direction are you headed in when the Sun is headed down? How often are you blinded by that intense light? How often do you drive in the heat of the summer? These things affect a driver, whether they care to think about it or not. Unfortunately, even the most substantial sunglasses can’t fix every problem.

By installing auto tint, we can minimize daytime glare and the glare from other reflective surfaces, effectively reducing your chances of getting into an accident due to an inability to see. Other than the benefits of being able to see without a significant struggle or sunglasses, using auto window tint can also:

  • Reduce the heat that gets trapped in your car
  • Block UV rays that can damage skin

Suppose you are particularly sensitive to harsh daylight. In that case, we can also install specific tinting along the top few inches of your vehicle’s front window to create a “screen” for unnerving light and glare.

Can Reduce Headaches and Migraines for Drivers

If you’re one of the millions of drivers that suffer from headaches and migraines while driving, it could be triggered by light glare and intense UV rays. That’s right, window tinting doesn’t just support driving safety but can bring added comfort to drivers and their passengers.

Can Give Added Protection

No one wants to imagine what they might do if they were in a car accident. Many of us research vehicle safety ratings for months before purchasing a car, and there’s a good reason for that. We can’t always imagine the worst, but we can prepare for it. Auto window tinting can help with shatter protection. As window tint is a strong film that lays over the top of the glass, it can help hold that glass together in various situations. 

It Won’t Reduce Visibility

We get asked all the time: will window tinting reduce my visibility? And the answer is no—when you’re working with Utah traffic stipulations. We make sure to follow the proper guidelines so that you have increased visibility rather than anything else. The better you can see, the safer you can drive, and that’s what Simply Cool Auto is here to help you do.
