WINDOW TINT

Running a tinting business is no easy task. Many have come and gone. Despite all the $99 tint specials and Groupon deals promising 4 window tint jobs (which is a total scam) we’ve persevered for 2 reasons. First, we sell the best quality film, and second our technicians are the best in the industry. Our tint jobs come with a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer to be 100% color stable, and they will not bubble or delaminate. Further, we back our installations with a full satisfaction guarantee. When you choose us to tint your car you will feel the difference for the entire lifetime of your ownership. Don’t let the lure of a so called “good deal” leave you feeling hot and frustrated in your vehicle.

Window Tinting isn’t just for aesthetic purposes. Although it’s a beautiful addition to a vehicle, it also plays a significant role in protection. Window tint provides protection not only to the vehicle but also to the driver and passengers. At Lucent Auto Work, we offer two varieties of protective window tinting: ceramic and infrared.

CERAMIC TINT

INFRARED TINT

Window tint darkness in Washington

The percent of visible light allowed through your car windows is called VLT: Visible Light Transmission. The percentage of light allowed through your film and glass in Washington is very specific and different for sedan cars and SUV cars or vans.

Tint darkness for sedans:

  • Windshield: Non-reflective tint is allowed on the top 6 inches of the windshield.
  • Front Side windows: Must allow more than 24% of light in.
  • Back Side windows: Must allow more than 24% of light in.

WE ARE HIGHLY EXPERIENCED AND THE BEST QUALITY FILM OUT THERE

In addition to blocking harmful UV Rays, window tint reduces heat and glare. This allows for a more comfortable interior vehicle temperature and a safer drive. In Washington, sunglasses aren’t enough when you’re driving into the harsh, glaring sun. Glare causes dangerous visual obstruction to the driver and increases the risk for an accident to occur. We all love when the sun comes out in Washington; however, it can take a toll on a vehicle’s interior. Leather, cloth and plastics can become faded and damaged from the UV rays and heat. This is easily prevented with window tint. Another important protection feature is window shatter prevention. Window tint adds an extra layer of protection to your windows, increases the strength of windows and can help prevent shattering in the case of an unexpected event.

CERAMIC VS. INFRARED: LET’S COMPARE

We are proud to offer two premium varieties of window tint: Pentagon Infrared and Suntek CXP Ceramic.

Let’s begin with Pentagon Infrared, often referred to as Pentagon IR. This product provides crystal clear clarity and is guaranteed with a lifetime warranty not to crack, fade, peel or delaminate. It’s non-reflective, blocks heat and is non-metal meaning it won’t weaken satellite, cell or radio signals.

Our other product, Suntek CXP is a carbon constructed, nano-hyrbrid coating. It’s also non-reflective and non-metal (won’t inhibit cell, radio or satellite signals). It rejects infrared, UV and heat and includes a lifetime warranty which covers fading.
