Tint My Windows

In the early 1920s, Chandler’s Ford was a small village surrounded by beautiful woods and fields. The main road running through the centre, linking Southampton to Winchester, was quiet and traffic-free. Now the village has grown in all directions and is a very busy place.

There were many groups of thatched cottages, interspersed with large properties set in several acres of land, and a number of market gardens and dairy farms. The springs and little streams have mostly been piped, converging where the railway station used to be, under the name of Monks Brook. The whole area was densely wooded, chiefly oak, yew and sweet chestnut. In the autumn lorries used to come to gather the fallen chestnuts to take to town for sale.

Before the railway works came to Eastleigh providing employment, the main industry was brick making. Bricks were taken from here by rail to London to build the Law Courts in the Strand.

In the 17th century, cherry trees grew in abundance throughout the village and each year people came from surrounding places to buy cherries (or merries as they were called). Oliver Cromwell’s son Richard brought his wife from Hursley to enjoy the Merrifeasts.

During the Second World War, American troops were stationed in Chandler’s Ford before D-Day. The men ate and slept with their vehicles which were parked under the trees along the roads. Many friendships were formed with local people and the children were given food they had never seen before – such as white bread, tinned peaches and tinned ham.

The village information above is taken from The Hampshire Village Book, written by members of Hampshire Federation of Women’s Institutes and published by Countryside Books. 

Window Tinting Chandler’s Ford – Southampton

Professionally installed window tinting films improve:

Passenger Comfort

Our automotive window films filter up to 65% of the sun’s heat, reducing interior vehicle temperature. Long journeys are more enjoyable – when parked up your vehicle will stay cool for longer. You can also save a decent amount on air conditioning/fuel costs.

Less Glare & Fatigue

Window tinting reduces up to 95% of unwanted glare within the vehicle’s interior and helps take the strain out of driving. Sun strips on the front windscreen should also be considered, especially in the winter to spring months, whilst the sun is low on the horizon.

UV Ray Protection

Automotive window films screen out up to 99 % of the sun’s invisible UV radiation, a principal cause of skin cancer and premature skin aging.

Reduce Interior Fading

Solar heat and UV rays can cause interior plastic trim cracks and fading of upholstery/carpeting. Using window tints helps keep your vehicle looking new.

There’s no extra charge for the various film choices, as our prices are based on the complexity of the installation, which varies from vehicle to vehicle.
You are more than welcome to call or email us for a no-obligation chat about the various options. We can also look to evaluate your car at our workshop and discuss the best choices. We use only the best quality professional films with a 5-year Guarantee.
