Need help to stay legal but have tinted windows


Guest zurabg

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I hope, that I have found the right place to ask this question. If I am mistaken, please forgive me.

I hope to find legal solution to have well enough tinted windows.

In my country vehicle window tinting will be restricted soon, rumor has it, that max. 30% blockage will be allowed, or even less.

I want to know, if there is an advanced technology, to show tinting within this range to testing equipment, which is basically a luminometer, I suppose, and is done in close contact with window, under 90 degrees of angle, and sunlight, that is looking on the vehicle from above, at some angle (around 40-45 degrees, in my area)

Or is there any other technologies, for example, polarised films, etc, that will block most light when viewed through opposite located films (say, from opposite window, or light that passes through windshield).

Please, if you know this, redirect me to such resources.

Thank you in advance,

Zurab

Lumisty is a film that changes visibility on angle. However, it is not smoked film to my understanding and is used mostly in building glass.

Polarized film for auto would be dangerous. Applying to one side in one direction then rotating film 90 degrees and applied to the other side would indeed cancel out visibility through the car. What if you were to drive with polarized sun glasses? You wouldn't see out one side of the car, or maybe not the back because of film orientation?

I am not sure if the canceling effect would still hide an occupant. :lol2

Very good points on this TJ.

I also would like to add that 30% is about the average allowed film darkness in the states. This film performs very well, So I dont think you would have any issues if this was the case. Even if film was banned in your country you could probably still get away with using a 70% film just for the UVA/UVB and heat rejection properties.

What exactly are you looking for in regards to tinting your vehicle?

Looks like zurabg is asking for help finding just some film, However not just any film.

This film needs to be darker then 70% VLT, Then if a light meter is used to test the VLT% of said installed film.

It will NOT give a reading lower than 70%, That's all he is looking for.

Thank you guys for your input.

Yes, exactly. To have dark or reflective appearance for human eye and hence vehicle interior privacy, but 70% VLT for testing equipment.

Best regards,

Zurab.

law enforcement is usually pretty intelligent and your windows aren't the first they have tested. not matter what the meter says. the testing officer still has some discretion. Best to keep it legal.
