Auto Tinting in Rural Manitoba and Winnipeg at Future Tint & Stripe

Automotive tinting adds that ‘complete touch’ to your vehicle. While it is available in a variety of densities (darkness), we must obey the ‘laws of the land’. There are restrictions on how dark the windows can be tinted. These are covered below. There are a variety of films to choose from, and your choice depends on what you would like the film to do for you. As spring and summer are peak seasons, an appointment is required. We do offer a ‘Free Shuttle’ ride to and from home or work within the city limits. If you are from out-of-town, we can take you back to your hotel or to a shopping mall. While the actual installation process takes about one to three hours, we do like to have access to the vehicle for the better part of the day. If removal of old film is required, it is recommended to leave your vehicle with us till the next day. View the films at FormulaOne.

This 'One-time claim' is good for one panel of glass and will be limited to film replacement & labour only. The process is simple, just make arrangements to bring your vehicle in along with your FormulaOne Warranty Card with the No Fault sticker on it, and we fix the film. No Problems, No Hassle.

Skin Cancer Foundation

The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends these products as safe and effective UV sunscreen devices.

Tint Legally

As long-standing members of the IWFA (International Window Film Association) we recognize the importance to tint vehicles to the limit allowed by the Province of Manitoba. To tint a vehicle darker than the law allows exposes the driver of the vehicle to substantial fines along with demerit points on the driver’s license. It also diminishes the installing dealers reputation with the authorities. For these reasons we will not tint darker than the law allows. Below is a chart for Manitoba as well as other Provinces. As these can change from time-to-time, you can refer to the most up-to-date state chart at the IWFA site.

Tips

1. If you are pulled over by the authorities, turn on your interior light, roll down your window and keep your hands in clear sight. Get your driver’s License and Registration only when asked for by the officer. This helps them feel at ease that you are not reaching for a concealed weapon or hiding something.


2. When choosing a film, keep in mind how long you will have the vehicle, and if you travel to extremely hot areas. If so, you may want to choose a higher performing film such as the Pinnacle Series. These films will not fade and reject the most heat.


3. Take care when releasing your seatbelt. The most common damage to window film is letting the metal buckle fly against the glass. This could leave a small chip in the film. Most people don’t even know when they do this. This is where the No Fault Warranty comes in handy. When accidents happen, we look after it. (See the No Fault Warranty for details)
