Choose the perfect Window Tint film for you:

ATC (Standard): Our ATC Classic Series window tint film is manufactured by Llumar, one of the leaders in the industry. It’s a dyed film with color stable technology that guarantees that it won’t fade or change color. It also has a scratch resistant layer to make it the most durable, long lasting film on the market. Llumar is the only manufacturer that adds Ultraviolet(UV) protectant to all 5 layers of the film to prevent discoloring and bubbling, which are both results of UV failure. ATC window film also provides a 99% UV rejection, protecting your interior from fading, and preventing your leather and vinyl from aging and cracking. CTX (Ceramic): Our CTX Ceramic window tint film is also manufactured by Llumar, but is a ceramic film. This film features all of the benefits of the ATC film, but with an added key benefit of premium heat rejection, reducing your car’s interior surface temperatures by as much as 29°F. Ultimately creating a more comfortable ride, while decreasing the strain on your vehicles air conditioning system. CTX ceramic film also provices a 99% UV rejection, protecting your interior from fading, and preventing your leather and vinyl from aging and cracking.

Why should I get window tint for my car?

Here are the most common reasons to choose window tint for your car or truck. Some of them might surprise you! Better fuel economy: Window tint keeps your car cooler in the summer which reduces how much use your air conditioner gets. That leads to less stress and strain on your car’s engine, increases your fuel efficiency, saving money on gas. Reduces the sun’s glare: Once you get your car windows tinted, you will notice the difference immediately. Tint helps reduce the sun’s glare during the day, helping you to see easier with less squinting, which makes it easier on your eyes. Heat rejection: The main benefit of any window tint is to reduce the effects of the sun, which of course means heat rejection. Some varieties of tint can reject nearly 50% of the sun’s heat resulting in a cooler car, even if it is sitting in the sun. Reduces 99% UV rays: The damage the sun can do to skin and eyes is a serious concern. Most varieties of window tint reduce the UV rays by 99%. These are the harmful rays that are often the cause of skin cancer. Protection against fading: The sun can fade the fabrics in your car, regardless of whether they’re made of leather, vinyl or cloth upholstery. This also includes items left in your car like clothing. Window tint helps reduce the effects of the sun, including fading. Reduces nighttime glare: Window tint helps at night too! With your windows tinted, you won’t be as vunerable to the bright headlights of cars traveling behind you. The tint will help to reduce the glare, which allows you to see better and drive safer.
