Generally, you’ll need to give us at least 24 hours notice when you’re trying to book an appointment for window tinting. During winter and slower times, we can sometimes accommodate a same day booking so it is always worth calling us if you need something done quickly.
We keep all our window films in stock so we don’t have to order anything in for your job. We operate our tinting workshop Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm and on Saturdays from 8 am to 2 pm. Most appointments take 2 hours to tint a whole car. Some large 4WDs can take longer and we will need extra time if we have to remove old window tint first.
Because we computer cut all our films, there is no need to cut by hand which means your car can be in and out in 2 hours. We’ve got the best waiting room in Newcastle across the road at Westfield Kotara so you can catch up on some shopping while we spruce up your car.
Window tinting your vehicle has a long list of benefit the most obvious is that it looks great. As well as this all automotive window films:-
We all know how hot it can get when a car sits in the sun for an extended period of time. The solar control properties found in automotive window films can greatly reduce the level of heat gain inside a car providing more comfort for the driver and passengers. Additionally, this heat reduction will lead to better fuel efficiency because car owners can rely less on air conditioning to provide comfort. Most automotive window films will on average reduce the heat entering your car windows by between 55% – 60% with some specialised films capable of up to 85% IR heat reduction.
It has been proven that UV rays from the sun can cause serious damage to the skin as well as increase fading on interior car furnishings such as dashboards, seats, floor mats, and stereo equipment. Automotive window films help to reduce the level of interior fading and protect skin by blocking up to 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Having a window film installed helps to resist glass shattering in the event of an accident due to the multi-layered construction and superior adhesives.
Altacut is Australia’s first computerised tint cutting system for cutting window tint and developed exclusively by Altapac.
