Who Chooses Us? - Quality and Service for every need

Ipswich, Cambridge, Chelmsford , Colchester or Bury St Edmunds

  • Why pay more for window tinting opposed to getting sun blinds?

    tab1As a family based company we are passionate about window film and its protection benefits for families, especially with young children and babies. For us, the appearance of the vehicle is the 'free' bit to window tints. The window film has an array of benefits.

    Our SunProtect window film gives you the comfort of knowing that your children are protected from heat and glare as well as harmful UV rays-our window film blocks 99.9% UV rays

    We recommend the darker window films on the back windows of your vehicle. So as well as reducing the heat, glare and UV you will also get the comfort of privacy for you children whilst you travel.

    This is particularly comforting when in traffic etc. The window film will act as a laminate, so in the event of an accident it can help prevent glass shattering. We also do a clear safety film which is an ever greater protector against shattering and broken glass in an accident.

  • Luxury and Prestige Car Owners

    tab2With over 40 years of experience, we have worked with luxury vehicles to the highest standard.

    From a window tint for a Ferrari to Maclaren MP12 we guarantee a completely worry free experience and exceptional value for money.

    If you have purchased a new luxury vehicle or a classic car we will take the greatest and care and provide a service second to none.

  • Enthusiast/Specialist Cars

    tab3If you have a specialist vehicle, wether a hobby car, new or old and have certain requirements we can offer our expertise to ensure all you needs are met.

    For example, as well as window tinting we can fit ʻsafetyʼ window film.

    This is often used in Rally cars etc, where in the event of a collision it stops the glass shattering and harming the driver and/or passengers.

    An example of this is recently a job we did for BBC Top Gear, where we fitted safety film to Kias that were then used in a rugby match

  • Commercial Vehicles

    tab4Many commercial vehicles require film for privacy to protect valuable good etc.

    We frequently fit dark film to rear screens on van, as well as cabs on pick upʼs etc to add privacy and security.

    Along with the other features and benefits of window film (Glare and heat reduction, UV blocking etc) when fitted to commercial vehicles it give privacy so acts as a deterrent, but will also act like a laminate in turn making the glass harder to smash.

Car Window Tinting Laws

Heres the legal bit...

LawTinted vehicle windows - The RULES from the VOSA If you've got tinted vehicle windows, the front windscreen must let at least 75% of light through and the front side windows 70%.
There are no rules for tinting the rear windscreen or rear passenger windows.It is also illegal to sell a vehicle with heavily tinted windscreen and front windows.

There are penalties for having wrongly tinted windows:
The police or VOSA vehicle examiners use light measuring equipment to measure window tint.

If your windscreen or front side windows are tinted too much you could get:

  • a 'prohibition notice' stopping you using your vehicle on the road until you have the extra tint removed
  • a penalty notice or court summons

At the window film centre we will advise you on the shade of window film that most suits your needs and ensure that what we fit is always legal.

    Mr Hornby Ipswich

  • "Great price to have my car windows tinted, and I'm really happy with the appearance.

    The service was spot on before, during and after.

    The technician was quick and professional, and gave me after-care advice. I would definitely recommend to a friend."

    Ipswich
    2014

  • "I would like to say a huge thank you for the window tints you put on our car. We had the whole car fitted with UV protect film, including the windscreen and we were amazed at the results. We have spent the whole of May in Spain where its been 40 degrees plus. We left the car parked in the midday sun whilst we had lunch and when we returned to the vehicle it was only just warm. Where others were having to wait for their cars to cool down before they got back into them we got straight back in. Our friends who we were with couldn't believe the results and now cant wait to book their car in too! Highly recommended."
