    Default What %age are the tints on the Signum?

    Does anyone know the %age tints on the Signum?

    Rear windscreen, rear side windows, but not sure if the fronts are done at all?

    Thanks.

    Sure someone can help soon but to tell if theyare tinted at all - hold a sheet of white paper behind them and see if it changes colour.

    The fronts certainly won't be more than 30% tinted (70% transmission) as that's the legal limit. The rears are slightly darker on the Signum as standard aren't they?

    Just look at the little stamp on the bottom corner of each pane, it will have a % transmission number. The fronts will have 70% on them. The rears should have the same sort of thing, just a lower number. From that you can work out the approximate tint level. Approximate as the % is a minimum amount i.e. the fronts let through a minimum of 70% light, but it could be a bit more.

    Just had the Swift tinted the same as the Signum, the guy said that Signums have 15% at the back and 20% at the (rear) sides.

    He has a light-meter and has tested Signums. He was quite a fan of them too

    Took a while, but I answered my own question

    Is that transmission levels then? I'm assuming it is given that the back is a lower % than the sides in your post.

    Glad you got an answer in the end though. Did your rear/side windows not have the stamp I referred to in my previous post?
