General

Almost everyone installing window tint on their vehicle wants to install the darkest legal tint, to maximise the glare and heat reduction benefits, but there are a few issues that can arise if the installation isn't properly managed, and in this article a professional window tinter shares exactly what needs to be managed, and why.

The first thing you should be aware of is what the darkest legal tint is in your area. This differs in different states and territories around the world. In my home country of Australia, the darkest legal tint permitted on a vehicle is generally one with a VLT (visible light transmission) level of 35%, on all vehicle windows (excluding the front windscreen, which is not allowed to have any window tint except for a visor strip across the top).
