Window Tint Health Benefits: Vaccines, Illnesses, Physical Safety

In part one of this two-part blog series, we looked over some of the major health-related benefits of tinting your vehicle’s windows. While some people think of window tint mostly for aesthetic and style purposes, which it’s absolutely valuable for, it also has value in several other areas — including several that speak to long-term health and wellness.

At Pro Tint, we’re here to offer the very best vehicle window tinting services in Utah for a variety of clients. What are some of the other major reasons why window tint actually shows health benefits to many vehicle owners and passengers alike? Here are a few to keep in mind.

Increases Vaccine Effectiveness

From the numerous vaccines most children are given to the more recent COVID-19 vaccine and more, did you realize that vaccination can be impacted heavily by UV rays? Prolonged exposure to UV rays has been shown to decrease the effectiveness of vaccinations, and this is something that can be remedied by window tint.

In a study done on mice, it was found that those given a vaccine and then exposed to UV light had much lower levels of immunity than those who were not exposed to UV light. The results were so significant that the study’s authors concluded that “UV light may need to be considered when designing vaccination strategies.”

While more research still needs to be done on this topic, it’s something that parents of young children and those who are looking to get vaccinated themselves should keep in mind. Especially if your child will be with you in the car for long periods of time, getting window tinting can give you an extra layer of protection against any sort of decreased vaccine effectiveness.

Reduces Heat-Related Illnesses

We all know how miserable it can be to be stuck in a car that’s been sitting in the sun all day. The intense heat and stuffy air can make for a very uncomfortable experience, and it can also put you at risk for heat-related illnesses.

When your car’s windows are tinted, the level of heat inside the vehicle is significantly reduced. This is because window tint blocks out a large portion of the sun’s UV rays, which are responsible for much of the heat that builds up inside a car.

Physical Safety

Finally, it’s important to remember that window tint also offers a physical safety benefit. In the event of an accident, broken glass can be a very serious hazard.

With window tint in place, the glass is held together by the film, and it’s less likely to shatter into large, sharp pieces. This can protect you and your passengers from being cut by glass in the event of an accident.

These are just a few of the many health benefits that window tinting can offer. If you’re looking for a way to improve your health and well-being, as well as the look of your vehicle, contact Pro Tint today. We’ll be happy to help you find the perfect window tint for your vehicle!
