We are all about functional aesthetics. Bon Vivant Automotive Care offers window tinting for a safer driving experience, right here at our Williamstown workshop.

Why do you need window tinting?

Window tint is a thin polyester film applied to glass surfaces to enhance appearance, safety and upgrade solar control. Solar radiation such as visible light, infrared and ultraviolet can be very damaging to skin and statistically Australians have one of the world’s highest rates of skin cancer. The sun can transmit over 90% of its solar energy through untreated glass, so protect your vehicle AND yourself with Johnson Window Films, which works like sunscreen to protect your skin by rejecting up to 99% of harmful UV radiation. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends window tinting as an effective UV protectant.

Window tint also offers to protect trim, upholstery, carpets and fittings from UVA and UVB radiation that contributes to fading, and cracking over time. The cost of re-upholstering leather can cost thousands of dollars as well as strip you vehicle’s originality and can negatively impact on your resale value. High quality window tint will reduce the amount of heat that penetrates into the cabin space, keeping you cooler, minimises your air conditioning needs and in turn helps reduce your fuel costs. From a safety aspect, accidents and forces of nature can shatter a pane of glass into small and dangerous shards. Tinting will assist in keeping that broken glass intact for easier clean up, and specialised thicker film can be chosen for extra security against forced breakage. In Melbourne we are seeing increased numbers of car related thefts, so having window tinting is a smart measure to make it more difficult for prying eyes to look through in the dark and an added challenge to break through.

Johnson Window Films is a high performing brand made in the USA that offers superior glare reduction and sensational looks that has been an industry leader for over 35 years in solar control and importantly being family owned and operated, just like us. As an ISO certified company with strong affiliations with many international window film associations and health organisations, you can be confident of its performance when installed by our professionals at Bon Vivant in our Melbourne based workshop.

Our range covers plenty of shades from visually very light to darkest legal in Victoria being 35% Visible Light Transmittance (VLT), we can help you select the right tint to suit your requirements and budget by speaking to our team.
