Before got my Honda City, I planned to install windows film on it. It will help to reduce some heat on Malaysia hot weather. There is lot of window films brands like 3M, V-Kool… And they offer several products which have visible light transmittance of 70%, 60%, 50% and 40%. So can we install anyone of them that we like? I am not sure. Because based on JPJ Malaysia Installation of Tinted Glass Rules below…
[pull_quote_center]Rules 5 (1) and 5 (3) of the Motor Vehicles (Prohibition of Certain Types of Glass), Amendment 2000, stipulate that the front windscreen should permit not less than 70% light transmission, while the back windscreen and side windows should permit not less than 50% light transmission. [/pull_quote_center]
The front windscreen must have more than 70% light transmission and the rest of the windows with more than 50% light transmission. I searched around Google and found out that most of Malaysia window film suppliers mentioned that their window films are compliant with JPJ guidelines. Based on window film dealers, they give warranty to pay JPJ fine on any window film issue.
Is it true that Malaysia window film suppliers will cover JPJ fine? Anyone can tell me?
