Legal Limit for Car Tinting in UAE

Car tinting is not only a great solution for improving the privacy of the car, but also serves as a sound investment to enhance the cosmetics of your vehicle, increase protection against sunlight, and achieve additional shielding against breaking and trauma to the glass. According to the 2017’s law in the UAE, 50% tinting is allowed on car windows except the wind screen. Before that, the legal limit for tinting was only 30%.

Therefore, choosing a reliable and trusted car tinting service provider for your car is crucial to avoid any fines or penalties. Fines on illegal tinting start from AED 1000 and go up depending on the excess over the stipulated limit of 50%.

Types of Car Tint

  • The most common car tints are made from a thermoplastic polymer resin compound, Polyethelene Terepthalate (PET). Once applied to the glass, it helps in absorbing heat, provides thermal insulation, and effectively shields from UV rays by filtering the incoming light.

  • Generally, there are 3 main types of car tinting films used in the UAE. There is metallic, ceramic and regular carbon nanofiber varieties. The different types of tint films vary in their compounds, quality, and price. Ceramic film for example is a top of the line tinting option that is made of ceramic nanofibers that allows better UV absorption and cooling.

  • In the UAE where summer temperatures can hit extreme limits, protecting your car from sunlight and surrounding heat is imperative for preventing any damage to your car and your health. Excessive sun contact and exposure to heat can lead to health problems such as tanning and skin cancers.

    • Fortunately, at Pitstop Arabia we offer all types of tinting films from leading brands in the UAE.

Things to Consider When Tinting Your Vehicle Windows and Wind Screen

Getting your tint done from an inexperienced vendor or using a poor quality film will not only waste your money, but also blur the vision from your glass and cause damage to it when removed. Therefore, we always insist on using high quality materials for tinting and getting the job done from an expert.

In UAE where temperatures can go as high as 50 degrees Celsius, poor tinting choices and improper application often leads to several undesired results for owner. In many cases the cheaper film starts to bubble and loses color only within a few months of installation. On other instances, the material begins to interferes with the radio frequencies, car navigation and defrosting and irrigation systems of the car.

Moreover, a bad tint job can cost you Dh3,000 to Dh4,000 for tinting cars such as a SUV.
