So why have your windows tinted?

Protect yourself and your family

Window tinting provides your vehicle the ability to block up to 99% of all cancer-causing UVA and UVB rays that we are exposed to daily, even in our cars. Especially in the summer months, we forget that the sun can cause damage to us and our passengers, even while in the vehicle. Not only does tinting your vehicle’s windows help prevent and protect from dangerous UV light, it also provides a way to keep your vehicle cooler on those hot days by reflecting the sun’s heat.

Protects your car windows

Tinting car windows from our experienced and professional teams throughout the greater New Orleans metro area can greatly reduce the chances of glass shattering in the event of an accident. The window glass can often stay attached to the window tint film. However, the tint does not add to the structural integrity of the glass.

Reduce interior fading and aging

Tinting your car window professionally with Mobile One Auto Sound’s team of professionals is one way to protect your investment because tinted windows block the harsh UV and sun’s rays from fading the interior leather or upholstery. Not only that, it can prevent the interior from warping or cracking due to too much sun exposure.

Privacy and Security

An often overlooked but highly valuable benefit to having your windows tinted is having an added layer of privacy and security in your vehicle. Untinted vehicles often have direct line of sight into the vehicle with little privacy for the driver or passengers. Likewise, if you leave valuables or possessions in an untinted window, it is much easier to see clearly and quickly what the object is.

Tinting the windows in your vehicle can mean protection. Protection from the harmful UV rays of the sun, protection from shattering glass in the event of an accident, protection of being robbed or having your car vandalized in an attempt to get at something in plain sight left in the vehicle. There are countless factors why our team of experts at Mobile One Auto Sound in the greater New Orleans metro area suggests having the windows on your vehicles tinted.
