What To Consider


Tint Benefits

Consider what benefits you want from your window tinting. Are you looking to reduce glare and heat, protect your interior from UV rays, increase privacy, or simply enhance the look of your windows? Understanding your primary goals will help you choose the right type of tint for your needs.


Choose Type

Decide on the type of tint that best suits your requirements. Options include dyed, metalized, carbon, and ceramic tints. Each type offers different advantages in terms of durability, appearance, heat rejection, and UV protection. Research and select the one that aligns with your priorities.


Know The Law

Familiarize yourself with local regulations concerning window tinting. Different regions have specific rules about tint darkness and reflectivity, particularly for vehicles. Ensuring compliance with these laws is crucial to avoid fines and ensure safety.


Install Quality

Consider the quality of installation. Professional installation ensures a smooth, bubble-free finish and maximizes the tint’s effectiveness and lifespan. With over 50 years experience, Altapac has you sorted.

Information About Installation & Bookings

Generally, you’ll need to give us at least 24 hours notice when you’re trying to book an appointment for window tinting. During winter and slower times, we can sometimes accommodate a same day booking so it is always worth calling us if you need something done quickly.

We keep all our window films in stock so we don’t have to order anything in for your job. We operate our tinting workshop Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm and on Saturdays from 8 am to 2 pm. Most appointments take 2 hours to tint a whole car. Some large 4WDs can take longer and we will need extra time if we have to remove old window tint first.

Because we computer cut all our films, there is no need to cut by hand which means your car can be in and out in 2 hours. We’ve got the best waiting room in Newcastle across the road at Westfield Kotara so you can catch up on some shopping while we spruce up your car, and our Hunter location on High Street is within walking distance of many of Maitland's best cafes and parks.
