You may absolutely love the sunroof in your car, but with the blazing heat of Las Vegas, it may feel like you can never keep your car cool enough in the summer months. One very popular option you can consider to keep your car cooler is tinting the glass of your sunroof. Tinting reduces the amount of heat that enters your car, keeps you cooler and protects the interior of your vehicle from the damaging rays of the sun. Window tinting can reduce the heat in your vehicle by up to 60%!
Tinting your side and back windows is very common and a virtual necessity in the Las Vegas area. You may have been told that adding a window tint can cause your sunroof glass to crack or break, however, this isn’t necessarily true. Your sunroof is very likely made of tempered glass, which is crafted through a process where the glass is rapidly heated and cooled many times. This makes it stronger than other glass of the same width. If your vehicle is involved in an accident, tempered glass will not shatter. Instead, tempered glass will break into many small, pebble-like pieces with dull edges that generally will not cut or injure the passengers in your vehicle. It is important to note that any time tempered glass is broken it cannot be repaired and must be completely replaced.
Adding window tint will not actually break the glass. However, if your sunroof glass is already vulnerable for some reason and already has nicks or manufacturing flaws, it is possible that there will be an increased risk of breaking. This is because the tint increases the amount of heat that the glass absorbs. So a tint will increase the chances of your window breaking only if it is already damaged or flawed in some way, but this is an extremely rare occurrence. Tinting your sunroof can safely help you reduce the heat inside your vehicle.
