Window Tinting or Anti-Smash and Grab in Pretoria

Why it makes Sense to Invest in Anti-Smash and Grab in Pretoria

South Africa is a beautiful and vibrant country, with magnificent nature and many different cultures. However, one should not be blinded to its faults, either. Worrying crime statistics just shows how important it is to stay safe on the roads and in general. You need all the help you can get to protect your family and your possessions while driving, when you take the levels of vehicle related crimes into account.

Investing in window tinting and anti-smash and grab products in Pretoria is truly an investment that will keep on giving back day after day. When looking into these products for your vehicles you will soon learn that there are many varieties of security tint available. However, many are four, seven or nine millimetres thick. These forms of window tints are clear, high-tensile polyester tint which features a pressure sensitive adhesive coating which is applied to one side of it.

When you strengthen your vehicle’s windows with this sturdy polymer tint, a strong adhesive bond to the glass will help to keep the glass together at a high impact. The glass won’t shatter upon accidental or forceful breakage. This will drastically reduce the chance that the window can be shattered by a smash and grab criminal. It will also give you the chance to respond to such an attack since the criminal will be caught unawares by the strengthened glass, giving you the element of surprise.

Aside from the obvious security benefits that anti-smash and grab offers you and the vehicle’s other occupants, there are also other health benefits associated with window tinting in Pretoria. Every Pretoria resident knows that the summer heat can be absolutely sweltering and merciless. When investing in window tinting, as much as 50% of the outside heat and u to 99% of the damaging UV rays known for causing skin cancer will be rejected and kept out of the vehicle. During the hot December and February months in Pretoria, you know that you need every bit of help keeping cool in your vehicle.

With this increased cooling that comes from window tinting, you will also save petrol in turn. This is due to the windows keeping the car cooler, which means that your air conditioning will have to work less hard in order to keep the car cooled. You will also avoid heat loss during the winter months. Many people are turning to window tinting to effectively reduce their petrol bills.

Yet another fantastic benefit of anti-smash and grab films that are applied to the windows will also help to prevent the windows from coming apart in a collision. While auto glass in general is rather resistant to breaking, as it tends to rather shatter instead of scatter, the window tinting can provide even more defence against windows shattering. These are only a few of the many benefits you will receive when you invest in window tinting and anti-smash and grab in Pretoria has to offer.

Protect Your Vehicle with Smash and Grab

There are countless occurrences where people fall victim to a smash and grab crime somewhere on the road. You are stopped at a traffic light waiting for it to turn green and suddenly your passenger window shatters and glass goes flying everywhere. You are stunned by the noise and your eyes are probably closed because you don’t want to get glass in them.

While all of that is happening, a smash and grab thief is dipping their hands into your car and politely relieving you of all your possessions that have been left on the seat. By the time you have figured out what has just happened, they have already made off with your belongings and you are stuck with a broken window and shattered nerves. It may be common sense to some people to keep personal belongings out of reach for would-be thieves but everyone forgets once in a while and that is when these degenerates tend to strike the most.

The same thing happens when you park your car out in the open and you accidently leave a bag, cellphone or wallet in the car. A thief would wait for the perfect opportunity to break the glass while no one is looking, so they can help themselves to whatever it is that you have left for them. The only way to effectively deter them would be to secure the glass with safety film.

Safety Film That Acts as a Deterrent for Thieves

Safety film offered by Electronic Fitment Centre is an effective way to deter thieves from breaking into your vehicle because they can see that there is a film covering the glass, making it more difficult to break through it. The film is made from a highly specialised plastic that is extremely hard to tear or break; so even if you through a big rock at the window it will stay intact and the glass will be kept in a single piece even though it has shattered behind the film. That means that even if you leave it parked in a car park, it will still take them a fair amount of time to get into your vehicle and they won’t be able to get away without attracting too much attention.

In most instances you will be given the option of a window tinting so that you can actually see the smash and grab layer on the windows. The darkest you can go is 35% in most cases because it is actually governed by law, but it is still more than enough to keep your windows dark and make the thieves aware that it is there. Once they see that there is a safety film over the glass, there is a good chance that they won’t try to break in.

Protecting Your Vehicle with Smash and Grab

Smash and grab protection is an invaluable addition to your vehicle, not only because it prevent petty theft and deters smash and grabbers from breaking your windows, but it also help keep your vehicle cool during the hot summer months. It reduces the UV rays that enter your vehicle, keeping it cooler and preventing harmful sun from getting into the vehicle.

That means that it reduces the amount of work an air conditioner has to do, because the interior is already cooler than it needs to be. It also helps prevent skin cancer for passengers as well as reduces wear and tear caused by exposure to the sun. The special UV filters reduce the harmful effects of the sun and indirectly extending the life of your interior upholstery.

All you need to do is make sure that you have it installed by an authorised dealer that uses the genuine product to help guarantee the work and give you the peace of mind that you deserve for your car.
