Q. What is the law regarding vehicle window tinting?

A. The light through the windscreen must be at least 75%. The light through the front side windows must be at least 70%. There are no restrictions to the amount of tint that can be applied to the rear side windows or the rear window.


Q. What is the law regarding a tinted sun strip on a windscreen?

A. Your sun strip can be 6 inches wide but this is dependent on the type of your vehicle.


Q. How soon can I open my vehicle windows after installation?

A. We recommend that you refrain from opening your windows for at least 5 days. This is to allow the film to dry and prevent it from peeling.


Q. Does window tinting affect the rear window defroster?

A. No.


Q. Will my rear window film be applied in one go?

A. The majority of cars only require one piece of film. If your car requires a join (because your rear window is curved) we will inform you beforehand and ensure that the two pieces are applied seamlessly.


Q. Will window tinting affect GPS/Satellite/Radio/TV reception?

A. Standard window tint is dyed and will not interfere with electronic signal transmission. Metallized window tint can effect reception so if you ask for metallized window tint we will discuss this fully with you.


Q. Should I clean my windows before installation?

A. We will thoroughly clean your windows before installation. We do recommend that the interior of your vehicle/property is clean to minimize the transfer of dust and dirt particles onto the films during installation.


Q. How do I clean my windows?

A. We advise using a soft, clean cloth and a non-abrasive cleaning solution. Please avoid wearing jewellery as this can damage your window film.


Q. What guarantee do you offer?

A. We offer a 7 year manufacturer’s warranty against peeling, bubbling, cracking and de-laminating.


Q. How can I pay?

A. We accept cash and cheques made payable to Philip Earl t/a Cool Glass.
