Solar glare can cause your eyes to strain. This can be especially dangerous on road trips when you need to stay fresh and pay attention to the road. Our window films have excellent heat and glare rejection which reduces the amount of glare inside your car. This makes driving a lot easier and stress-free.
By cutting out 90%+ of UV light and a lot of infrared rays, our window tints will improve the longevity of your car's interior by preventing bleaching and fading.
Keep your belongings in your car out of sight of the prying eyes of thieves with our dark window tints. Not only will they keep prying eyes at bay, they also minimise heat absorption during summer, thus making for a more comfortable ride.
Window tints keep the window pane together in case of a break in or impact, thus preventing glass shards from going everywhere. This extra protective layer makes it harder for someone to break in as well as keeps you and your passengers safer in case of a car crash.
Most window tints and safety forms come with a 10-year warranty which covers bubbling, peeling and other distortions that may arise.

CAR WINDOW TINTING LAWS NZ
The only films allowed on front windscreens are anti-glare bands that extend no lower than the bottom of the sun visor when lowered, and stone guards on trucks and buses. On any passenger car (Class MA vehicle), the darkest legal tint is 35% VLT* on all windows, including the front side windows (on either side of the driver), rear windows, side rear windows and back windows. Please note that a station wagon has the same classification as a car. Vans, 4WD's and SUV's can have any degree of dark tint behind the driver's door, but the limit of 35% remains the same for the front side windows.
*VLT stands for visual light transmittance. The amount of visible light that passes through a vehicle's window is measured as a VLT percentage. The lower the VLT percentage, the darker the film. Clear glass has a VLT of approximately 85%.
Vehicles like stretch limousines or hearses have the same restrictions on the windscreen and front side windows, but can have any VLT level of film applied to the rear, side rear and back windows. Any vehicle with a film applied to a window that is further back than the driver's seat must have external rear view mirrors on each side.
Vehicles with factory tinted glass may have lower than 35% VLT. In these instances, each window is marked as AS3 glass. Mirror film or partial mirror film is not allowed in any vehicle.
Windows can be checked by using a calibrated VLT meter or by using a 35% VLT card, which is available from WFAANZ. WFAANZ installers use labels to certify the VLT level as being no less than 35%. For clarification, simply visit your local WFAANZ window film installer as they will advise you on the most suitable and legal film for your needs.
