Benefits of Glasfit's Anti-Smash & Grab Tinting FilmIn today's world, ensuring the safety and comfort of your vehicle is paramount. Glasfit's Anti-Smash & Grab Tinting Film offers a cutting-edge solution that enhances the security, comfort, and aesthetics of your car.

Applying tinting film is not a DIY task. If not applied correctly, the film can crack, peel, bubble or completely separate from the glass. At Glasfit, our certified and experienced technicians ensure a flawless application, guaranteeing product quality and workmanship.

Glasfit ensures its tinting solutions comply with South Africa's legal tint limits, offering you privacy and protection within the bounds of the law. With a 35% VLT on the side and rear windows and a 70% VLT on the front windscreen, our tinting solutions provide optimal visibility and safety.

What is Anti-Smash & Grab Film?

Anti-Smash & Grab Tinting Film, although not totally impenetrable, provides an additional level of security against a smash-and-grab attack. It can also help protect you and your passengers from flying glass in the event of an accident.

Why Choose Glasfit's Anti-Smash & Grab Tinting Film?

At Glasfit, we prioritise quality and innovation. Here's why our tinting film stands out:

1. Reinforced Windows

Our advanced film technology boosts the structural integrity of your vehicle's windows, providing extra protection against potential damage. Drive with confidence knowing your windows are fortified against unforeseen hazards.

2. Environmental Benefits

Tinting your windows reduces the need for excessive air conditioning, thereby conserving energy and lowering your carbon footprint. Enjoy a cooler ride while contributing to environmental sustainability.

3. UV Protection

Our tinting film blocks harmful UV rays, protecting you and your car's interior from sun damage. It's like giving your car its own sunscreen, preventing skin damage and interior fading.

4. Tailored Comfort

Whether you prefer a darker tint for privacy or a lighter shade for style, we offer a range of options to suit your preferences. Achieve the perfect balance of comfort and customisation for your vehicle.

5. Reduced Glare

Say goodbye to eye strain caused by glaring sunlight or headlights. Our tinting film reduces glare, providing a more comfortable and safer driving experience, especially during dawn, dusk, or bright sunny days.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the legal tint limit in South Africa?

In South Africa, the legal tint limit for vehicle windows is 35% visible light transmission (VLT) on all windows except the front windscreen. The front windscreen is allowed a 70% VLT, ensuring clear visibility while driving.

2. How long does the smash-and-grab film take to cure?

The smash-and-grab film typically takes about two weeks to fully cure when exposed to sunlight. During this period, it bonds firmly to the glass, offering optimal protection and durability.

3. Does your smash-and-grab film fade?

No, our smash-and-grab film does not fade over time. It maintains its effectiveness and offers UV protection, ensuring long-lasting performance.

4. What causes the film to appear lighter or darker on another vehicle?

Several factors influence the perceived transparency of the film:

Type of Glass: Vehicles with clear glass may appear different compared to those with film-tinted glass.

Interior and Exterior Colours: Darker interior colours, such as black leather, can make the film appear darker.

Viewing Angle: The angle at which the vehicle is viewed can affect the perceived darkness of the tint.

5. What is the thickness and strength of the film?

Our standard film is 100 microns thick (1mm), significantly strengthening the glass and enhancing its resistance to impact and breakage. Please note that we offer a range of options to accommodate your specific needs.
