Vision vs. Film Darkness?
Will I be able to see out of the
windows at night ?
Why certainly so...as long as you turn your
headlights on and follow your local tinting laws. In our minds we feel it holds true that
laws are made for the mind set of the people that live and govern a particular region.
Here in Texas we usually deal with three different darkness ranges (depending on film type
used). 35%-38% darkness used on law restricted windows, 15%-18%, and 5%(limo). Since
1984 we have never had even one person come back in and request a lighter film be
reapplied because of night vision problems. In fact our customers comment that they wished
the legal limits allowed them a darker choice. We have had a few people that went with our
5% (limo tint as some call it) on unrestricted windows allowed by law and comment it's no
problem but, it does take a little getting used to it being on there, but in their same
sentence say they wouldn't do it differently because they like it. Keep in mind
the darker you go where you're allowed to, the more heat and energy is filtered.
However we do recommend to a person
that has bad vision problems (but, good enough to have a driver's license) to stay towards
the lighter end of the darkness scale just to be completely on the safe side of things.
