I often get asked about filed edges. People ask what they are and why do they want them? THis is a great question and honestly, it may not be for you. In this video, I want to share a window tinting technique that may interest you. If you are shopping around for a window tinting job on your car you may have noticed that there are so many things to consider. It can be a lot to take in. I am hopefully going to make things easier by explaining and bringing a little clarity to the situation. Let’s take a look a filed edges. In this window tinting video, I show the difference between micro edging and filed edges. Micro edging is the common practice of leaving about a 1/8th-inch gap at the top of the window when positioning the window film pattern on the side roll down window. 1/32″ to 1/8″ has been considered professional for many years in the window film installation industry. But new cutting edge techniques have been established and a more strict installation practice has been born for the better. Filed edges is a process where the film is positioned just over the edge of the window and then filed so that no actual gap is there to be seen. This has much more of a factory look and is far more clean in appearance. This also provides for a more intimate relationship between window tint and the glass with less of a chance of peeling down the road. So the bottom line is this if you can afford it and you plan to keep your car for a good number of years then filed edges may be something that you can justify spending your hard earned money on. This provides that extra little touch and ultra professional look and you won’t be sorry that you got the filed edges on your window tinting job.
