Window tint isn’t just for your car. It’s also used on home and office windows as a way to reduce sunlight, achieve cooler temperatures and add a decorative touch. Yet window tint isn’t purely decorative or just for keeping cool – there are situations where it may actually save your life.
1. Prevents Melanoma Development
Constant sun exposure on a specific area of your skin can lead to the development of cancerous spots known as melanomas. Now think about how often you’re in the car. How long is your commute? Do you run a lot of daily errands? Have you ever laughed about your “driver’s tan”? Add in how often you’re sitting in front of windows or deliberately exposing yourself to the sun and the risk increases. The Nevada sun is especially brutal, which is why it’s so important to take precautions before going out. Wearing sunscreen with a high SPF is a great start, but tinting the windows in your car and home can help reduce your exposure to harmful UV rays that cause skin cancer.
2. Prevents Collisions
Have you ever been driving your car and been blinded by a sunbeam? It’s only for a second, but those seconds count when it comes to reacting to and avoiding a collision. Glares come from road surfaces, vehicle windows and paint as well as other reflective surfaces. Many accident reports cite poor visibility as a main cause. While keeping your windows clean can help, window tint can substantially reduce glare and improve visibility, giving you the precious time you need to see and avoid a crash.
3. Prevents Home and Office Burglaries
Home invasions and robberies are a common occurrence. Home and business owners are often severely injured or killed during these crimes. Installing tint on your home or business windows can prevent would-be burglars from seeing what valuables you have. It also strengthens your windows. And while it won’t completely prevent them from gaining access, it can make it much more difficult and time-consuming. If the extra effort involved doesn’t stop their attempt, it can buy you time while you wait for the police to arrive.
4. Prevents Car Jackings and Robberies
Just like home and window tint, tinted car windows also make it difficult for would-be thieves and hijackers to see what’s in your vehicle. This acts as a deterrent since you’re not such an easy target – they’re not able to determine if approaching your vehicle is worth the risk since they don’t know what’s inside. They also won’t know if you have the ability to protect yourself and resist their attempts.
5. Prevents Damage in Natural Disasters
Many injuries in a natural disaster are caused by broken glass. During a storm, these shards of glass can become deadly projectiles. In the aftermath, homes and businesses are often littered with it. But window tint is installed using an adhesive that will usually hold the shards together when a window is damaged , reducing the chance that they’ll cause injuries.
