Having Your Car Windows Tinted and Skin Cancer Prevention

car windows tinted

There are more than a few benefits of having your car windows tinted but today we’re talking about the role of car window tint in skin cancer prevention. A benefit that you can take advantage of by visiting us here at Flying Window Tinting Orlando.

Having Your Car Windows Tinted and Skin Cancer Prevention

Having your car windows tinted significantly reduces your exposure to skin cancer-causing UV rays. This is particularly important in areas like Orlando where skin exposure to UV rays from the sun is particularly high.

To give you a better understanding of the significance of the UV ray blocking power of having your car windows tinted, here are a few facts and statistics that you may find interesting.

  • Exposure to UV rays is directly linked to the development of skin cancer.  UV rays damage the skin cell’s DNA. When this damage affects the DNA of genes responsible for skin growth, skin cancers begin. Having your car windows tinted helps to reduce your risk of skin cancer by blocking out harmful UV rays and protecting the skin from the resulting damage.
  • Our top of the line LLumar car window tinting film can filter out as much as 99% of UV rays with a wavelength of 300-380nm! This vastly reduces your chances of developing skin cancer due to UV ray exposure while driving!
  • The strength of UV rays that you are exposed to can influence your likelihood of developing cancer. When considering sun exposure, you are exposed to the strongest UV rays while driving between the house of 10 a.m and 4 p.m.
  • You may think that you are protected from UV ray exposure when you drive on a cloudy day but this isn’t necessarily true! According to the American Cancer Society, where some clouds can block some UV rays, others can actually reflect them and increase your UV ray exposure! This is why you should never rely on a “cloudy day” to protect you against a sunburn! This is also a great reason to install UV ray filtering car window tint that will protect you from UV ray exposure year round!
  • UV ray exposure is higher in areas closer to the equator. In the continental U.S., Florida is the state closest to the equator which means Floridians are exposed to higher levels of UV rays than residents living in states like New Jersey, for example. Fortunately, a high-quality tinted window film can reduce this exposure risk.
  • UV rays can bounce off certain surfaces and result in increased UV ray exposure. These surfaces include water, sand, snow, pavement, or grass, all of which, with the exception of snow, are regularly noted in Florida. You can protect yourself against these harmful UV rays by wearing high-quality sunscreen, sunglasses, and by investing in UV ray protection devices like Llumar car window tint! This is particularly important for Floridians who live a short distance from the beach, sandy areas, or areas with water exposure (which, let’s face it, is most of Florida!)
  • Protective clothing can help to reduce your risk of skin cancer from UV ray exposure. Living in Florida, however, you already know that wearing this type of protective covering in the peak of summer just isn’t feasible! With temperatures soaring, the last thing that anyone wants to do is put on more clothing!
  • Skin cancer isn’t the only risk that comes with UV ray exposure and it’s not the only risk that can be reduced by having your car windows tinted. A high-quality Llumar car window tint can also reduce other side effects of UV rays including skin discoloration, decreased skin elasticity, precancerous skin changes, the risk of developing cataracts, signs of premature aging, immune suppression, and wrinkles.
  • There s a misconception that dark-skinned individuals cannot suffer negative health effects due to U.V ray exposure. While dark-skinned individuals do have a lower risk of developing skin cancer from UV ray exposure, their exposure to dangerous UV rays can still lead to negative health effects like cataracts and a suppression of the immune system! You can reduce these chances by investing in high-quality sunglasses, protective sunscreen, limiting your time in the sun, and purchasing high-quality car window tint to stop a significant portion of those UV rays from sneaking in!

Window Tinting Florida Can Trust: 10 Reasons We Use Llumar Window Tinting Film

window tinting florida

When it Comes to window tinting Florida can trust here at Flying Window Tinting Orlando we know that the quality of window tint film matters. That’s why we only trust Llumar window tinting film. If you’re not familiar with Llumar brand car window tint film you may be wondering why we put so much trust in their brand, well today we’re going to share just a few reasons why we trust our reputation to the Llumar brand.

10 Reasons Llumar Window Tinting Film is Window Tinting Florida Can Trust

1. Eastman Performance Films, LLC, the manufacturer of Llumar window tinting films has over sixty years of experience in window tinting film manufacturing!

2. Llumar window tinting film is durable! We have researched more window tinting films than we can count, but when it comes to durability, no window tint film stands up to the test of time better than Llumar!

3. Many companies trust any window tinting Florida shop with their product, but Llumar only trusts their window tinting films in the hands of auto shops that will do them justice. Yes, you read that right, Llumar actually screens the auto shops that they trust to use their films because they want to make sure that they are done the justice that they deserve!

4. Llumar offers a range of car window tinting films that each provide a variety of benefits. Unlike some tint film companies that offer one type of film that does one thing, Llumar has many different car tints that each offer specific benefits so that no matter what you need from your film, you can find one to fit your needs!

5. Not all companies are created equal, this is particularly true when it comes to window tint film manufacturers. Llumar really stands out from other window tinting film companies because of the amount of research that they put into their products. Rather than just creating products that “look right”, Llumar takes the time to do the research and back their products up with science and numbers!

6. Bigger isn’t always better, but in the case of Llumar’s manufacturing site, it happens to be true. Llumar doesn’t just have the largest manufacturing plant in the country, they have one of the largest and most integrated window and performance-coated film manufacturing sites in the world! Why is this important? Because their huge manufacturing site is dedicated to product research, design, and development and not just manufacturing!

7. There are plenty of brands offering window tinting Florida trusts, but when it comes to Llumar, their films are trusted worldwide. So trusted, in fact, that over 100 countries around the world trust Llumar films as their film of choice. What does that say? It says that with the thousands of options available on the auto market, more than one hundred nations trust Llumar!

8. Our window tinting Florida shop trusts Llumar for many reasons, but one of the most important to us is that Llumar offers more than just auto window tint film. In addition to their auto films, Llumar also offers window tinting films for buildings that are trusted by corporations worldwide. We feel this is important for you to know because while your car reflects you, a corporate building reflects a corporation’s reputation so we know that Llumar would never allow a subpar product to leave their factory floor!

9. Another characteristic that makes us love Llumar is that they are a company who is dedicated to sustainability. Unlike other companies who don’t think twice about the impact that their manufacturing process has on the environment. Llumar works daily to be sure that they are having a positive effect on the environment.

10. Within every industry, there are associations who are responsible for the regulation of quality. Llumar has made sure that they teamed up with as many of these associations as possible so that the car window tinting film that you invest in provides you with the qualities that you want from a product as well as the qualities that you need.

Taillight Tinting Orlando Shop Explains Taillight Tinting

taillight tinting Orlando

Taillight tinting Orlando shop, Flying Window Tinting, is answering your FAQ’s on taillight tinting today, so if you have a question, read on to get your answer! If you have a question that hasn’t been answered, feel free to give Flying Window Tinting a call!

Taillight Tinting Orlando Shop Answers Taillight Tinting FAQ’s

Q: What is Taillight Tinting?

A: Taillight tinting is exactly what it sounds like! We use tinting films just like the films that go on your car windows when you’re getting your car windows tinted! Although similar, these films are precision cut to precisely fit your car’s taillights. Of course, here at Flying Window Tinting, our taillight tinting Orlando loves is done with Llumar, top-quality tinting films to ensure long-lasting quality!

Q: Why Should You Get Your Taillights Tinted?

A: This is a frequently asked question simply because so few people have actually heard about taillight tinting before. So, why should you get your taillights tinted? One of the biggest benefits of having taillight tint installed on your car is that the tint is better for your lights. A good taillight tint film will protect your taillights from UV damage, can prevent foggy headlights, and can prevent your taillights from glaring which can cause problems for other drivers on the road.

Q: Why Go With Professional Taillight Tinting Orlando?

A: When having your car’s taillight’s tinted, just like when you have your car windows tinted, you have the choice of installing your own tint film or having a professional install your tint for you. So, why should you opt to have a professional install your taillight tint over applying your own taillight tint film? Here are just a few reasons:

  • When you tint your own car taillights, you only have access to films that are available commercially. When you have a professional taillight tinting Orlando shop tint your taillights for you, you have access to exclusive and professional films that will last much longer!
  • A professional car tinting shop has the tools you need to cut taillight films with precision and to apply those films properly without any problems. When you try to install your own taillight tinting films, however, you likely don’t have the right tools on hand for the job which means that you may end up cutting your own films and getting crooked edges or applying your films and getting dust caught under the films or wrinkles or bubbles developing and creating a warped look to your taillight films.

Q: Is taillight tinting legal?

A: Just like car window tint, taillight tint is legal, but the level of tinting that is permitted varies by state. Here in Florida our state law says:

“shall emit a red light plainly visible from a distance of 1,000 feet to the rear.”

In most cases that means that your light must allow 24% of light to pass through it. What does this mean for your car taillight tinting? It means that those dark black tints that some people sport on their cars are illegal. If a car window tinting shop offers you this type of tint, keep this in mind and opt to use another window tint installer instead.

Q: If a Shop is Willing to Install Super Dark Taillight Tint, Why Shouldn’t I Get it?

A: The taillights of your car serve a very important purpose which is why certain laws limit taillight tint percentage. If you install a taillight tint that is far too dark (and illegal) you are putting your life and the lives of others in danger. Darker than permitted tint on your taillights also draws the attention of law enforcement professionals and will result in your being pulled over, fined, and required to remove the films from your taillights. Essentially, you lose your investment in taillight tint films and you pay additional fees which means that you are going to pay more for your self-installed films in the end than you would if you paid a professional car tint installer.

Finding the Best Orlando Window Tinting Shop

Best Orlando window tinting

If you have been obsessed with finding the best Orlando window tinting shop to complete your window tinting job, you’re not alone. For many of us who baby their cars a little too much, every little thing matters and when it comes to window tinting, well, that’s not such a little thing. So, as the best Orlando window tinting shop, here at Flying Window Tinting we know what it takes to be the best and today we’re going to share that with you.

Finding the Best Orlando Window Tinting Shop: What You Should Be Looking For

Reputable Window Tint Films

One of the first things you should pay attention to when looking for the best Orlando window tinting shop is whether or not they carry reputable window tint films. Here at Flying Window Tinting, we carry Llumar brand window tint films because they are not just high-quality films, but they are also backed by an incredible guarantee and we want you to have peace of mind. If a window tinting shop that you are considering doesn’t carry a high-quality name window film or refuse to tell you the brand of their window tinting films, pass on that shop and find a shop that is willing to be upfront and honest with you about what you are purchasing.

Knowledgeable Technicians

We always recommend visiting a car window tinting shop before you commit to an appointment. This allows you to take a look at the shop as well as talk to the technicians who they have on staff. When you do this, pay attention to how knowledgeable the technicians and staff are. Are they willing to talk to you about the different films that they carry and discuss your needs with you? Do they take the time to explain the differences between films that you are considering to be sure that you select the right choice of film for your needs?

Here at Flying Window Tinting in Orlando, we often hear from our clients that we are the best Orlando window tinting shop because we take so much time to educate them on which films we carry and what each film offers. We believe that this is a necessity because you are making an investment and it’s important to us that you are happy with the car window film that we install for you. Why? Because we take pride in our work!  If you visit a window tinting shop that does not take pride in their work in this way, we recommend walking the other way.

Education

No one likes to be lectured, but it’s important that you understand how to take care of your investment. So, when you visit an Orlando window tinting shop if technicians don’t talk to you about how to take care of the window tinting films that you have purchased, you should be skeptical.

At Flying Window Tinting in Orlando, we know that you work hard for every dollar you make and know that deciding to invest that money into window tinting films is a big decision. We value that choice and we want to be sure that your investment is one that will last, that’s why we only carry high-quality Llumar window tinting films AND we talk to you about how to properly care for that tint so that it truly lasts and lasts as a high-quality tint.

Information Not Pitch

When you head into the best Orlando window tinting shop, it’s important that the staff of the shop are willing to provide you with solid information about the different types of window tint that they carry. They should listen to what you want from your window tint and recommend the best tint for your needs.

Here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting, we don’t believe in selling you the most expensive window tinting film that we carry because we want to make a profit. We want to be sure that you get the right film for your needs because when you are happy with the job we do for you, we know that you’re more likely to recommend us to your friends and family and that’s great for us!

If the window tinting shop that you visit is pushing you to buy a window tinting film that doesn’t fit your needs exactly just because it’s the most expensive one they carry, turn around and walk away.

Tired of Searching for the Best Orlando Window Tinting Shop?

If you’re tired of searching for anything better (because you won’t find it!), give us a call here at Flying Window Tinting Orlando and make an appointment with one of our professionally trained window tinting technicians! You’ll be able to reach us at (407)380-1202 and we’ll get you set up with an appointment right away!

How Llumar Air Blue 80 Window Tinting Film Can Benefit You

Llumar Air Blue 80

Llumar Air Blue 80 window tinting film is just one of the Llumar window tinting films that we offer here at Flying Window Tinting in Orlando, but today we’re talking exclusively about the benefits of Llumsr Air Blue 80!

The Benefits of Llumar Air Blue 80 Window Tinting Films

Clarity

Llumar Air Blue line of window tinting films is not your ordinary window tint, it’s a clear window tinting film with a slight blue tint that has the benefits of a traditional window tinting film without the dark appearance.  That means no more questionable looks because your car windows are too dark, no more being pulled over and questioned about how dark your tint is, and no more people staring just in case you’re a celebrity behind that tinted film. Llumar Air Blue films are crystal clear, you can see straight through them even though they still offer you plenty of protection.

Heat Rejection

One of the biggest reasons why people choose to have window tinting done on their car is because it helps with heat rejection. This is particularly helpful when you live somewhere like Orlando when in the peak of summer the heat can be unbearable! What does it mean for your car when you have Llumar Air Blue 80 installed? It means that when you get into your car after being inside the store, the inside of your car won’t feel like a sauna. It also means that when you start that engine, your car won’t have to work nearly as hard to bring down the interior temperature and we all know how overworked our AC units are in Florida anyway!

UV Ray Protection

Llumar Air Blue 80 window tint film also offers premium UV ray protection. When installed properly, the Llumar Air Blue 80 window films will block up to 99.9% of harmful UV rays. What does that mean for you? It means that while you’re driving, your skin is less exposed to UV rays and you’re less likely to suffer skin damage as a result. What does it mean for your car? Well, it means that your upholstery is less likely to get damaged from sun exposure!

Improved Shatter Protection

Most people aren’t aware of it, but when you install certain types of window tinting film on your car windows, your windows are provided better security against shattering in the event that you have a car accident. The Llumar Air Blue 80 window tint film is a micro-thin film that serves to hold together the glass of your window so that on impact, your glass does not shatter and fly everywhere, instead, it’s held together by the window tinting film providing a much safer environment in an already dangerous situation.

No Problems with Connectivity!

Some older versions of window tinting films caused problems with cellphone reception by interfering with signals. Llumar Air Blue 80 uses nano-ceramic technology to ensure that you have no problems with connectivity or signal when traveling in your car even though your windows are tinted!

10 Benefits of the Window Tint Orlando Residents Recommend

tint Orlando

When it comes to window tint Orlando residents recommend for their vehicles, Flying Window Tinting carries the one professional window tint brand that offers it all – Llumar. If you’ve never tinted your car windows before, however, you might be wondering what benefits come from adding the window tint Orlando recommends to your car windows and how Llumar film exceeds the quality of other brands used by other shops…

10 Benefits of the Window Tint Orlando Residents Recommend

1. UVA Protection

The Llumar ATC series of window tint Orlando residents choose most often provides 99% UVA protection. This is important because UVA exposure has been linked to signs of premature aging, skin cancer, and damage to the eye.

2. Reduced Interior Fading

A top quality window tint film, Llumar window tint film is designed to reduce interior fading of your car (console, dashboard, seats, etc.) that results from sun exposure. This helps your car to retain better value over time.

3. Electronics Friendly

If you had your car windows tinted decades ago, you may recall the trouble that tinting films caused for car phone reception and even radio signals. Times have changed since then and Llumar films were designed with our increased technological dependence in mind. Llumar ATC films do not block radio signals and allow for the unsullied use of your electronics!

4. Reduced Glare

One of the biggest draws of Orlando is the incredible weather, but when it comes to driving the glare of that bright summer sun can be irritating at best. Fortunately, the full Llumar range of car window tints block out that annoying glare and allow for safer and more comfortable driving!

5. A Lifetime Nationwide Guarantee

When you invest in Llumar window tint Orlando residents recommend, you aren’t just purchasing a one-time installation relationship. When you invest in Llumar window tint films, your films are protected by a lifetime, nationwide guarantee. This means that your window tint films installed by Flying Window Tint are covered for LIFE!

6. Lower Car Interior Temperature

When you rely on Orlando window tint shop to install your Llumar films, you aren’t just investing in the personal benefits of tinting your car windows, you are also investing in the life of your car’s air conditioning system! With superior heat rejection, Llumar films keep the interior temperature of your car down even when your car is parked and that means great news for your car’s AC system!

7. No Fading

If you ever invested in poor quality window tinting films, then you have, no doubt, seen the purple coloration that they take on over time. This discoloration is the result of sun exposure and poor quality window tinting films being unable to effectively reflect the sun’s rays. Llumar window tints, however, use modern technological principles to ensure that your car window tints never recreate that 1980’s look!

8. Scratch Resistant Coating

Many car window tint films claim to feature a scratch resistant coating that makes sure that your car’s window tinting film doesn’t become easily damaged. Unfortunately, many of these claims are simply untrue and many car owners experience unsightly cracking and scratching of their car window films. Llumar, however, is a top quality brand of window tint Orlando has trusted for decades and their window tinting films are guaranteed not to scratch!

9. Shatter Resistance

Many car window tinting films claim to offer shatter resistance in vehicle windows after their film has been applied. Unfortunately, a vast number of these film production companies are offering exaggerated claims. Llumar car window tint, however, has proven time and again that their films really are shatter resistant!

10. Infrared Ray Reduction

Infrared rays come from the sun and are felt by our own skin as heat. Infrared rays cannot be seen with the naked eye, however, which means that drivers are at their mercy. Fortunately, with Llumar window tint films, infrared ray intrusion in your vehicle can be reduced considerably and this makes for a more comfortable driving experience!

We carry a full range of Llumar window tints and our service always meets and exceeds the expectations of our customers! To make your appointment today just give us a call at 833-732-3278!

Car Window Tinting: 5 Drawbacks to DIY Window Tinting Films

car window tinting

Car window tinting isn’t the type of job that you should trust just anyone to do for you…including yourself. Yes, you may be handy with a pocket knife, you may even be a professional scrapbooker, but when it comes to car window tinting you REALLY need to have a professional take care of the installation for you and here are five reasons why!

Car Window Tinting: 5 Drawbacks to DIY Window Tinting Films

1. Knife Cutting Vs. Computerized Cutting

When it comes to car window tinting, applying your own window tint films at home means cutting films to fit your windows with scissors or a knife.

The window tint films you can purchase at most stores are generic films made for windows LIKE your car windows. They are not made specifically for YOUR car windows, which means that you will need to cut them for the best fit. Unfortunately, cutting anything by hand just isn’t a reliable way to cut and you will wind up with wobbly lines, accidental cuts, and often, films that are just too small for your windows!

When you have a professional shop install your car window tinting films for you, if they are a reputable shop like Flying Window Tinting, their films will be cut specifically for YOUR car using computer-guided lasers.

2. Window Tint Film Quality

DIY car window tint films can be purchased from most superstores and auto supply stores, however, the quality of those films is nothing close to that of the professional quality films you can obtain through a professional car window tinting shop.

Here at Flying Window Tinting in Orlando, we rely on Llumar professional quality window tint films and their quality of film is outperformed by no other!

3. DIY Car Window Tinting is a One-Shot Deal

When you purchase DIY car window tinting films you get one set of films and you have one shot to cut those films to the right size and apply them to your car windows. That means that one slip with the scissors or knife and you could ruin your window tint film. It also means that one crooked film installation or one crease during installation and your DIY films are trash!

Conversely, when you invest in professional car window tinting at a shop like ours, you are guaranteed to get professionally installed, smooth, precision cut films for your car windows on every window. You will never walk away unsatisfied!

4. DIY Car Window Tinting is More Expensive in the Longrun

When you purchase car window tinting films for DIY tinting, you may think that you’re saving money because your films are cheaper and you’re not paying for professional installation. This would be true if the majority of DIY car window tinting didn’t go terribly wrong.

The truth of the matter is that most people who attempt DIY car window tinting fail on their first installation attempt. This doesn’t just mean having to pay for another set of films, but often it also means having to have a professional remove the films that were poorly installed. As you can imagine, by this time, you have spent far more than you intended to and the cost only keeps mounting as you reattempt to tint your windows for the second time!

5. Guarantee? What Guarantee?

One of the biggest drawbacks to using DIY car window tinting films on your car windows is that they don’t come with a guarantee. Since you, an untrained amateur, will be installing the window tinting films that you purchased, the manufacturer of the window tinting films simply can’t offer any type of guarantee on their product because it can very easily be installed incorrectly. This means that even if you do install your window tinting films yourself and do it correctly, you won’t have a guarantee against the films wrinkling, peeling, or becoming discolored over time.

When you have your car window tinting done at a professional shop like Flying Window Tinting in Orlando, you receive a full guarantee! Not only are the films themselves covered by that guarantee, but so too is labor so that you never have to worry about losing money on your investment!

Florida Window Tinting: How Window Tint Keeps Your Car Cooler

Florida window tinting

Florida window tinting for your vehicle has quite a few benefits, but have you ever heard people talk about how car window tint can keep the interior temperature of your car down? Wondering how that works? Well, that’s exactly what we’re talking about today!

How Florida Window Tinting Keeps Your Car Temperature Down

Today we’re going to talk a little bit about the science behind Florida window tinting. More specifically, how tinting the windows of your car can keep the interior temperature of your car down!

Solar Energy

The total solar energy from the sun that we are exposed to here on Earth is comprised of three types of radiant energy: visible light, ultraviolet light, and infrared light.

The light spectrum of the radiation that we receive from the sun here on Earth ranges. We are most familiar with ultraviolet radiation and infrared radiation, but we often confuse the two.

Ultraviolet radiation is the radiation which is harmful to us as humans and causes damage to our skin. Ultraviolet radiation is at one end of the light spectrum. 3% of the total solar energy from the sun is ultraviolet energy.

Infrared radiation is the radiation which produces heat. Infrared radiation is at the opposite end of the light spectrum to ultraviolet radiation. 53% of the total solar energy from the sun is infrared energy.

The effects of ultraviolet and infrared radiation are hard to disconnect from each other because we often feel that the sunburn we experience from ultraviolet light is associated with the heat we feel from infrared radiation. In truth, ultraviolet light cannot be felt.

So, how does Florida window tinting come into play? 

When a Florida window tinting company like Flying Window Tinting uses high-quality window tinting films like Llumar, those films are designed to reject heat by rejecting infrared radiation and to protect your skin against sun damage by rejecting ultraviolet rays.

The ability of a window tinting film to reject heat by rejecting infrared radiation is referred to as “IR Rejection”. This heat rejection is measured as a percentage. So, for example, if a window tinting film rejects 33% of infrared rays it means that that film is rejecting 33% of the 53% of the total solar energy that comes from infrared rays. So, this film would reduce the overall level of infrared solar rays and reduce the amount of total solar energy.

Florida window tinting shops don’t just use window films that reduce infrared radiation, though, they use top quality window tinting films that further reduce total solar energy by rejecting visible light and absorbing a percentage of total solar energy.

In addition to stopping a percentage of infrared rays from passing through the windows of your car, top quality window tint films like Llumar also reject a percentage of ultraviolet rays. The rejection of UV rays then reduces the amount of fading and damage caused to the interior of your car as a result of UV ray exposure.

So, in short, when you choose a reputable Florida window tinting company to install your car window tint films, you are reducing the effects of total solar energy on the interior of your car. This is done by rejecting visible light, rejecting UV rays, rejecting infrared rays, and absorbing total solar energy.

Now, choosing a less reputable Florida window tinting shop almost always means choosing lower quality window tinting films. Lower quality films don’t just mean that your car’s window tinting film won’t fit well and won’t look great, it also means that those films don’t reduce the amount of total solar energy in the same way that Llumar films do. So, those cheaper films on your car windows may save you a few bucks in the short term, but in the long-run, they can result in damage a lot worse than the few dollars that you’ll save. Your skin will be exposed to higher levels of UV rays, resulting in damage to your skin (possibly even skin cancer), your car interior will be damaged and cracked by UV rays, your car’s air conditioning system will be taxed to the max with increased exposure to infrared rays that increase the interior temperature of your car, and without a reduction in glare provided by Llumar films, you may very easily experience an accident while on the road!
