window tinting

Vehicles or buildings, we've got you covered.

Vehicle tints
Modern vehicles are designed to keep you safe in the event of any unforeseen incidents. But how often have you been affected by harsh sunlight while driving? Fitting SunTek® automotive window film to your vehicle is not just about enhancing the appearance; there are many significant environmental, health and safety benefits for you and your passengers.
Building tints
Window tints are a cost-effective way to rejuvenate your buildings appearance. Tints are available in a variety of colours that can give your interior/exterior windows a contemporary look. Commercial window tints make guests more comfortable by eliminating annoying "hot spots" in guest rooms and common areas. Harsh UV light causes carpets, furnishings and other soft goods to fade. Window tints reject up to 98 percent of the sun’s harmful and damaging UV light.

Tinted vehicle windows: the law

The rules for tinted front windscreens and front side windows depend on when the vehicle was first used. There are no rules for tinting the rear windscreen or rear passenger windows.

Vehicles first used on 1 April 1985 or later

The front windscreen must let at least 75% of light through and the front side windows must let at least 70% of light through.

Vehicles first used before 1 April 1985

The front windscreen and front side windows must both let at least 70% of light through.

Penalties for having wrongly tinted windows

 It’s illegal to fit or sell glass (or a vehicle already fitted with glass) that breaks the rules on tinted windows. 

The police or the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) vehicle examiners use light measuring equipment to measure window tint.

If your windscreen or front side windows are tinted too much you could get:

  • a ‘prohibition notice’ stopping you using your vehicle on the road until you have the extra tint removed
  • a penalty notice or court summons
