YOU magazine article

An independent test was conducted by YOU magazine on our window film.

They parked two almost identical vehicles next to each other in the sun, one tinted with Klingshield and one without our product.


Temperature readings were taken after an hour and the results were very surprising.

The outside temperature was 20° C. The temperature inside the untreated vehicle with no window tinting was a staggering 60° C, whilst the temperature inside the vehicle with the tinted windows was a remarkable 45° C.

This is 15° C lower.

Proof that if you wish to keep your vehicle's interior in good condition for longer and also save on fuel, by using the air conditioner less often, you should have you vehicle's windows fitted with Klingshield window film.

Elon Musk has just rolled his his latest Tesla economy brand.

This eco-friendly car is reasonably priced and can travel 215 miles on one electric charge.

Klingshield’s smash and grab tint is a useful add-on to reduce the amount of energy used by the air-conditioning, as well as to shatterproof the windows in the event of a smash and grab attack.

These smash and grab attacks are happening in all the major cities around the world.

Automotive finance companies using kill switches.

Financial watchdogs are up in arms and trying to enforce finance companies to stop installing this technology into the vehicles.

Obviously if the client skips a payment, the kill switch is activated and the vehicle is disabled. The vehicle can only be utilized once the finance company unlocks the switching device.

If the vehicle happens to switch off in a bad location, at least the Klingshield Smash and Grab window film will offer driver and passengers some form of safety.

Klingshield Smash and Grab tint not only shatterproofs the car windows, but it also reduces the amount of sunlight from passing through the windows.
