Ohio Window Tint Law Enacted: 2004
OHIO WINDOW TINT LAW ALLOWS THE FOLLOWING DARKNESS FOR CAR WINDOW TINTING
The darkness of tint is measured by (VLT%) Visible Light Transmission percentage. In Ohio window tint law, this percentage refers to percentage of visible light allowed to pass through the combination of film and the factory tint of the window.
Here is what is allowed in Ohio window tint law:
Windshield: Must allow more than a total of 70% light in. Transmission through glass.
Front Side Windows: Must allow more than a total of 50% light in. Transmission through glass.
Back Side Windows: Any VLT can be applied legally on this window.
Rear Window: Any VLT can be applied legally on this window.
HOW REFLECTIVE CAN THE TINT BE ON AUTO WINDOWS ACCORDING TO OHIO WINDOW TINT LAW?
Tinting film can contain metallic elements (silver mirror look) that help to reflect incoming light and reject the glare and heat generated by visible light.
Front Side Windows: No metallic or mirrored appearance.
Back Side Windows: No metallic or mirrored appearance.
OTHER OHIO RULES AND REGULATIONS
Restricted Colors: The tint colors of RED YELLOW are not allowed by state law.
Side Mirrors Dual side mirrors are required if back window is tinted.
Certificate Requirements: Manufacturers of film need to certify the film they sell in the state. Ask your dealer if they are using certified film.
Sticker Requirements : The sticker to identify legal tinting is required between the film and glass on each tinted window.
Medical Exemption: Ohio window tint law allows medical exemptions for special tint.
