AUTOBAHN PERFORMANCE WINDOW TINT SIMULATOR
It might seem counter-intuitive to apply window films to a vehicle that came with dark windows from the factory. The fact of the matter is that darkened windows alone won’t give you the results you are looking for.
One of the most frequent questions our specialists get asked about automotive window tinting is to explain the difference between factory tinted windows and aftermarket window tinting. It very common for vehicles to have some tinting applied in the factory. Most newer models, especially SUV’s and Mini-Vans have a factory installed tint with approximately 15% - 20% visible light transmission on most windows except the windshield and driver and front passenger windows.
What are the benefits to aftermarket automotive window film? The truth is the factory tinted glass doesn’t provide nearly the same benefit as professionally installed window film. Tint from the factory is really more of a cosmetic enhancement, and while it slightly reduces glare, factory tint doesn’t deflect heat or protect the vehicle occupants from damaging ultraviolet UVA and UVB rays.
At top tier shops with the Autobahn™ seal of approval, you will find dealers that maintain the cosmetic aesthetics of your vehicle, to ensure you drive away safe, satisfied and looking great. Here’s how they do it:
Achieve Cosmetic Consistency
We ensure our after-market tint matches the factory tint in both shade and degree of reflectivity. At Tint Shield, we have a large selection of Autobahn window film in a wide variety of shade levels, as well as tints that are reflective and non-reflective. In most cases a non-reflective window film will match perfectly to the factory tint on the rear glass.
The aftermarket, professionally installed films by Autobahn™ prevent 99.9% solar heat, and UVA and UVB from getting in through those windows. This means your vehicle will remain cooler all summer long, and have to rely less on your air conditioning system. This results in tangible fuel savings, that add up over time.
Our aftermarket window films can also protect driver and passengers from injuries caused by glass shattering. In the event of a motor vehicle incident or a crack from a stray pebble or rock, the adhesive on aftermarket window films acts as a protective layer that holds glass together in one piece instead of shattering all over the inside of the car.
Autobahn™ dealers have creative solutions to almost any challenge. Some SUV drivers want window film installed on the inside of their factory tinted windows, to gain double the heat rejection and UV protection without adding any reflectivity to the glass.
We Know the Limitations
We are aware of the local laws around aftermarket window film. We follow the guidelines to ensure each tint installation meets window visible light transmission films statutes. In most provinces, the installation of window film on a windshield is limited to a small strip across the top of the windshield, and is not permitted on front driver or passenger side windows.
We also are aware of technological advancements in the rapid growth of on-board electronics, and can reassure our customers that our aftermarket window film won’t interfere with the operation of their Bluetooth, GPS signals, radar detectors or premium satellite radio options like XM or Sirius.
More Protection is Better
If you are looking for increased heat rejection in the summer, better heat retention in the winter, improved security and privacy, and 99.9% rejection of UV rays in your vehicle, aftermarket tint is the only way to go. Give us a shout today, we would love to answer your questions and help find a qualified dealer near you.

Increased Fuel Economy
Any car sitting outside in the summer gets extremely hot. If you have a black or dark coloured vehicle with dark interior, it can feel 10 times worse than that. This is why most of us blast our A/C all summer long to reduce the heat and enjoy a good cruise around the city. It turns out, though, that keeping your A/C on all day can cost you A LOT of money in extra fuel costs.
Most vehicle air conditioners require engine power to operate. Of all auxiliary power requirements, a/c systems use has the greatest impact on fuel consumption. Using the air conditioning can increase fuel consumption by up to 20% because of the extra load on the engine. This phenomenon does not just happen in the summer. In the winter, vehicles use the heat from the engine to warm the cabin air. However, if the defrost setting is selected, the A/C system may also be engaged automatically to keep the windows from fogging.
What can you do? Simply put, install window films on your vehicle. The latest technology in window films does not just block UVA/UVB rays, they also reduce the sun’s heat entering your vehicle in the summer and reduce radiant heat loss in the winter by up to 50%. This means your vehicle stays very comfortable all summer without the A/C, and it retains heat better in the winter as well.

INCREASE YOUR COMFORT, STYLE, FUEL EFFICIENCY AND PERFORMANCE WITH OUR AUTOBAHN POWERED BY HUPER OPTIK WINDOW FILMS
Deciding to have your vehicle’s windows tinted is one of the smartest automotive decisions you can make. However, to avoid unwanted run-ins with the law, it is important to have the job done by an experienced professional.
Installing tint on your vehicle’s windows has a variety of advantages, including enhanced appearance and cooler interior temperatures during hot days. Unfortunately, darker window tint can impact safety and attract undesired attention from police officers, here is why.
Compromised Safety for Law Enforcement
A major reason why window tint regulations exist is to protect police officers from potentially dangerous situations. Excessively dark window tint can eliminate a police officer’s ability to make eye contact with individuals inside a vehicle and see what they are doing while approaching a stopped vehicle. Officers are put on high alert when approaching vehicles with very dark window tint, as the windows make it possible to conceal illegal activity.
Reduced Visibility for the Driver
Extremely dark windows on a vehicle can lead to dangerous situations for the driver and for others on the road, especially when combined with other factors that impact visibility such as night and poor weather. Cars with excessively dark windows can limit the driver’s ability to interpret images on their side mirrors, as well as prevent eye contact between the driver and others on the road, such as other motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians.
Monitoring Seat Belt and Cell Phone Usage
In Canada, all provinces have laws regarding the usage of seat belts and mobile devices. If a car’s windows are tinted too much, police officers can’t enforce these regulations through passive visual inspections, and may have to pull vehicles over to confirm or discredit their suspicions. This is time consuming and annoying for both drivers and police officers.
How Dark is too Dark?
A rule of thumb for law enforcement is that officers must have a clear line of sight through both front windows of a car, however, each province in Canada has a different specific regulation regarding appropriate window tint. Some allow no films to be installed on the front windows, while others allow only certain tint percentages. If you are not sure about your local laws, the International Window Film Association keeps a convenient list that cross references all provinces with their current laws and exceptions. Exceptions to these rules are often made for people with medical conditions that are aggravated by sun exposure. If that is the case for you, be sure to consult your physician to see what your options are.
To avoid undesired run-ins with the police, and to make sure you get the best product for you, ensure that you consult an experienced window tint shop. As always, if you have any questions regarding automotive window tint, don’t hesitate to get in touch. What do you think?
Heat rejection film is not only an investment in occupant comfort, but also in vehicle protection.
Heat Rejection Films Keep You Comfortable
Personal taste in vehicles varies hugely. Some people like a low-riding sports coupe with a roaring engine and quick handling, others prefer a rugged 4×4 with chunky tires and a clever differential, and some would rather cruise around in leather-clad luxury.
Despite all this variation, there is one feature that unites the modern driver in their quest for driving heaven; comfort. At the end of the day, we all just want something that we will enjoy driving. A critical part of our comfort level in our vehicles is temperature. Being able to regulate the temperature of the cabin is paramount to driver and passenger comfort.
Autobahn’s superior window tint offers high-performance heat rejection and temperature moderation that puts you in control of your cabin’s climate, without having to rely 100% on your air conditioner.
Why Heat Rejection Matters
People usually consider things like fuel economy, power, features, aesthetics, and practicality when shopping for vehicles. Car shoppers rarely consider the heat rejection capabilities of a vehicle, which is why it’s such a popular after-market modification.
Heat rejection is vital for a comfortable trip year-round. On hot summer days heat rejection film will keep your car cool and comfortable while it sits outside in the sun, so you aren’t returning to a car-shaped sauna. During the winter, the heat control properties of Autobahn film means that your vehicle’s temperature remains consistent and you don’t have to open the window.
Heat rejection film lowers your dependence on your vehicle’s AC, meaning that the unit will last longer and you will save on fuel. Heat rejection film shields you from solar radiation, including heat and ultraviolet rays, keeping you cool, safe, and comfortable.
Protect the Driver and Passengers
Many of us find that our vehicles are primarily used to get ourselves to and from work, and our family members from A to B. Since so much of this type of driving is done in the morning and evening (morning commute and after-school soccer practice), solar glare is a serious concern. Window film cuts out glare so you can keep your eyes on the road, keeping your family safe on the road.
The Highest-Performing Film is a Smart Investment
There are lots of choices for anyone looking to add tint to their vehicles. Every tint manufacturer out there boasts about the benefits of their product, but only Autobahn has consistently delivered superior performance; that is why out network is so big.
When a motorist pays for the highest quality in window film, they are receiving a great product and making a smart investment. Cheaper, lower-quality films are prone to peeling, chipping, and turning purple which means they will need to be replaced after only a few years. This means that over time, cheap tint will actually cost more money than the good stuff.
We all take pride in our vehicles, so it makes sense to invest in modifications that will stand the test of time and perform to the highest standards for years to come. High quality window tint is a strategic investment, and Autobahn’s window films will be with you far down the road. Give us a shout with any questions you may have.
PROTECT YOUR VEHICLE WITH OUR AUTOBAHN POWERED BY HUPER OPTIK HEAT REJECTION WINDOW FILM
Our vehicles are among our most prized and valuable possessions. The time we spend in our vehicles represents a significant portion of our days, so it makes sense that we want to make those hours as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Autobahn window films are a simple upgrade that has numerous benefits. Use window films to make your ride more comfortable, more efficient, safer, and more stylish.
Autobahn Window Films: Solar Control, Style, and More
The majority of vehicle modifications have to do with style, and nothing is sleeker than tinted windows. Darkened windows can be used to make your vehicle look more sporty, classy, or rugged, depending on what you value most.
That being said, high-quality window tint isn’t a one-trick-pony. The same films that are used to improve the looks of your vehicle will also give you:
On hot and sunny days, our air conditioners can’t keep up with the relentless heat. Moreover, having our AC constantly on full blast will exhaust the unit and consume significant fuel. Window films block solar heat from entering your vehicle, ensuring that you stay cool and comfortable without having to rely on your maxed-out AC.
The best way to stop auto-crime is to remove the temptation. If criminals can’t see in your car to look for valuables, they will move on to an easier target. Window film is one of the strongest deterrents you can add to your vehicle to keep it safe. Not only will window film protect your vehicle and your valuables while you are away, but the tint will turn your car into a private, safe place during traffic.
Solar glare is a major safety concern. Even momentary blindness caused by reflected sun can lead to disaster. Glare is especially dangerous during low-light conditions, such as dawn and dusk (in other words, when we are driving to and from work). Automotive window film cuts out glare and lets you see clearly, reducing eye strain and keeping you safe.
Anyone who’s thought of upgrading their vehicle has probably thought of window tint, but most people are unaware of the variety of benefits that tint provides. In addition to looking BEAUTIFUL, autobahn window tint will protect the occupants of your vehicle from sun, deter thieves, and keep your eyes on the road. Quality tint will last for decades, and you will fall in love with your car all over again.

Untreated automotive windows don’t offer sufficient protection for occupants. Heat-rejecting, UV-blocking, glare-eliminating solar films will keep you safe.
Increase Safety with Heat Rejection Window Tint
When most people think about vehicle safety, they focus on accident prevention and minimizing the consequences of a collision; things like airbags, seatbelts, and various driver-assistance technologies. While these are important, many people miss addressing the health risks that we face on an ongoing basis.
We are quick to apply sunscreen or wear protective clothing before spending time outdoors, but rarely consider how driving can put us at risk for the same potential hazards as a day at the beach. Sun damage caused by exposure during driving is a serious issue that certainly deserves more attention.
Drivers and passengers are at the mercy of the sun’s radiation. UV rays that pass through a car’s window on sunny days can cause sunburn, premature aging, and even contribute to skin cancer. Fortunately, Autobahn’s heat rejection window tint is available to keep vehicles cooler and safer.
Why Solar Heat Control is Important
The sun is the source of all life on Earth. As humans, we need sunlight to survive and exposure to sunlight has massive health benefits. However, like most things in life, the correct amount of sun exposure is a balancing act; too much sunlight can be as harmful as too little.
Those of us with children or elderly family members must pay increased attention to sun exposure, as these groups are particularly susceptible to harm. To avoid serious health concerns, it’s important to explore solutions to solar exposure.
In addition to UV radiation that passes through windows, we must consider the issue of excessive heat buildup. A hot car can lead to occupants becoming dehydrated, light-headed, or nauseated. In extreme cases, neither rolling down the windows nor full-blast AC will be able to combat excessive heat. The solution to heat control is heat rejection film.
Autobahn offers a high-performance automotive window film that can help anyone prevent their vehicles from overheating. The films reflect UV and heat-carrying infrared radiation away from your car’s interior, meaning that vehicle occupants will stay cooler and safer.
UV exposure and excessive heat are two ways the sun puts us at risk in the long-run, but solar glare is a more immediate concern. Glare causes drivers to lose their ability to see the road. We all know that taking your eyes off the road for even a split second can be disastrous, so eliminating solar glare should be top-priority for all safety conscious motorists.
There are many reasons to invest in automotive window tint, the most obvious being that it produces a safer and more comfortable journey. If you are concerned at all about vehicle safety, high-quality window films is a great place to start. We are always here to answer any questions you may have.
Windows are good for keeping intruders and pests out of your vehicle. But what about heat? Many people think that tinted windows are all they need to keep the heat from overwhelming them once the temperature rises. Unfortunately, factory tints are usually designed for style and privacy over protection. Our ceramic window film is designed to help you reject the vast majority of heat from coming through your vehicle’s windows and making the interior uncomfortable. You can prevent sunburns, heat exhaustion, and other problems by opting for this simple modification.
Stay Comfortable in Your Car with Heat Rejection Window Films
When it comes to our vehicle, we look for multiple qualities. Some people like a fast car with a roaring engine, while others like a sleek ride that turns heads – and most people will take both, if they can find it. But there’s also another quality that can impact the experience we have with our vehicle – how comfortable is it to drive? This doesn’t just mean that the interior is roomy or that the seats are made with cushioned material. What about the temperature? Autobahn’s highest-performing window tint films offer superior heat rejection, allowing you to stay cool without forcing you to run your air conditioner in excess.
Why Heat Rejection Matters for a Car
When a person shops for a car, they rarely think about something like heat rejection. Fuel economy, engine power, and interior features are usually higher on the list of priorities. Heat rejection is something that is very important for a comfortable trip. On sunny days, rays can beam down through windows at an unrelenting pace. And even if you have your air conditioner on high or even if you roll the windows down, you may not be able to stay as cool as you’d like. There’s also the problem that running your air conditioner constantly can lead to the system wearing down quicker and even causing reduced fuel economy. Heat rejection films can let your windows function as shields to reject the vast majority of ultraviolet rays and keep the interior cool and comfortable.
Buying the Highest-Performing Films Is a Smart Investment
There are plenty of choices out there for anyone who wants the highest-performing window film. Every company may tout the merits of their products, but only Autobahn’s have delivered superior performance to build a massive network. When a person pays for window films of the highest quality, they get a great product – but more importantly, they’re making a smart investment. Lower-quality window films can lead to problems like peeling and chipping. They may need to be replaced quicker and thus cost the buyer even more money. High-quality films last longer and thus save a person money over time. Many people put a lot of money into their cars – and they take pride in spending their money in a strategic manner. The best products provide the best results, and Autobahn’s highest-performing window films will last for the long haul.
Protect the Whole Family During a Drive
For those who are in the business of family ferrying or even functioning as the driver for a work carpool, there’s a good chance the sun has caused some problems at one time or another. Rays beaming through windows uninhibited can cause a danger to those inside, especially if they have sensitive skin. Using a high-quality window film can help anyone guard against the dangers of sunlight and enjoy a cool, comfortable, and safe drive every time they get on the road.
