Auto Window Tinting is one of the best ways to improve the look and comfort of your car. It provides driving comfort, keeps vehicles cooler, increases privacy,
discourages theft, and reduces fading of upholstery. Auto window tinted glass is one of the most popular upgrades sought after by new car owners. Window tinting
not only provides added comfort and security, but it also increases the value of your vehicle because the interior stays in great condition. We use SunTek or Global
films on every install because they have a variety of window tint to choose from.
We offer the following window tint film percentages.
The 35% Window Tint Law in Maryland means that the TOTAL amount of light being transmitted through the glass of a motor vehicle cannot be less than 35%.
In other words, it doesn't make any difference what percentage the actual window tinting film is rated at, you still cannot exceed 35% total Light Transmittance Value (LTV).
The problem here is that many people purchase a window tint film that is rated at 35% and think it's automatically okay to put it on their car windows.
A 35% window film will guarantee you that your vehicle will be illegal, and here's why:
- ALL vehicles come from the factory with a certain percentage of tinting incorporated into the glass. In most cases it blocks out approximately 20% of
the available light, which means that 80% is still passing through. That is an LTV of 80%, and there's no problem there.
- An aftermarket window tint film rated at 35% means that the film allows 35% of the available light to pass through,
and blocks out 65%. (This is known as 35% LTV Film) And again, there's no problem with that.
Here's where the trouble begins. When you place a 35% window tint film over a vehicle window that is already blocking out 20% of the available light, you
have now reduced the LTV to 28%, which does not meet the Maryland LTV requirement. Why is it now 28%? Because you started with a piece of glass that was already
blocking out 20% of the available light, and you are now placing a 35% tinting material on a piece of glass that only had 80% available light to start with. (.35 x 80 = 28%).
That means you are now blocking out 72% of the available light, leaving only 28% to pass through.
We want you understand the law completely because there are many Window Tint Shops out there who are telling their customers that a 35% window tint film placed on their
vehicle glass is legal. Additionally, many shops will just tint your windows without even telling you what is, and what is not legal in Maryland.
To be safe, Empire Auto Detailers recommends 50% window film to ensure you are legal (.50 x 80 = 40%). That means you are now blocking out 64% of the available
light, leaving 40% to pass through which is legal in the state of Maryland.
