Glare from the sun is a real nuisance for drivers. We have all been in the situation where the sun has been in our eyes and the car's plastic visor just won't cut it, particularly in the early moring or in the evening rush hour. The problem is intensified in the summer, but is still present in the spring and autumn months when the sun sits low on the horizon. A simple and cost effective solution is to have a sunstrip applied to your vehicle windscreen.
A sunstrip is a 7 inch tint band that is installed to run along the top of your windscreen, which is the area of the glass that the majority of solar glare affects. It is a solid band that runs the entire width of your screen meaning that the sun is blocked no matter which direction you travel. A common flaw with the plastic sun visor is that the sun ends up creeping out from behind them (normally around the rear view mirror). A tinted sunstrip eliminates this problem completely.
A tinted sunstrip has several advantages. A sunstrip helps block the sun from getting into your eyes by reducing glare on the windscreen. Mr Tint's charcoal tint range can cut down visible light transmission by up to 95%. Another aspect to tinted sunstrips is that they can make large windscreens appear to look smaller, which is an effect that many of our customer's have requested.
