Windshield Sun Shades

Sun shades protect your car from the harmful UV rays that relentlessly pour down onto your vehicle. Some sunshades even include insulation to help keep your car or truck cool and fresh.

Odds are, you’ve probably climbed into your car before, only to find that it’s sweltering hot. Your steering wheel is on fire, your seat burns the back of your legs, and it’s generally an unpleasant experience all-around thanks to the sun that’s been pouring UV rays into your ride all day long. Adding a simple windshield shade to your arsenal of car or truck accessories is perhaps to keep this miniature greenhouse effect at bay and keep you and your passengers as cool and comfortable as possible even in the hottest months.

What Is the Best Windshield Sun Shade?

Look for a sun shade that provides UV protection. Quality shades should use a reflective material to prevent heat absorption inside your car. Some shades are designed more for privacy than sun protection, so be sure you select one that is reflective.

The best sun shades are custom-fit to your windshield. Vehicles come with a wide range of windshield dimensions. An improper shade may not only cause direct sunlight to enter your vehicle but may also have difficulty staying up. Invest in an affordable option that’s designed to fit your exact windshield for hassle-free use and effective sun protection.

Finally, consider a shade that is retractable or foldable. These features make it easy to remove the shade before you hit the road. Store your sun shade easily in your vehicle for use at work, the grocery store or your next road trip.

Do Windshield Shades Work?

Premium shades made out of the right material are effective at reducing the heat and UV ray exposure of your car’s interior. Choosing a low-quality material may not effectively reduce the heat and UV ray exposure, so be sure to shop at California Car Cover. Read reviews from other customers to see which shades are effective for your vehicle. Use our detailed specifications to compare materials and dimensions to choose your own favorite sun shade.

How Do You Use a Windshield Sun Shade?

A windshield sun shade is designed to prevent UV damage and intense heat while your vehicle is parked. It works by reflecting sunlight with a reflective exterior coating or material. To use a sun shade, be sure you have the correct size and fit. An improperly sized shade won’t effectively cover your windshield or protect your vehicle from direct sunlight.

Check the type of shade to determine whether it folds or rolls. Park your vehicle in the shade if possible and place the windshield sun shade over your windshield after safely parking. Remove it when you enter the car and enjoy reduced dashboard fading and interior heat. Consider pairing your windshield shade with side window shades for even greater protection and convenience for your favorite vehicle.

Custom Windshield Sun Shades for Your Vehicle Protection

While there might be nothing quite like feeling the sun shining down on your face, its rays aren’t quite as pleasant for your vehicle. No matter what type of car, truck or SUV you have, the heat the sun generates can quickly turn your vehicle’s cab into a sauna, as well as slowly start to do damage. A custom sun shade helps protect your vehicle and belongings and is designed to perfectly fit the interior for maximum coverage.

Sun Shade Benefits

Along with potentially keeping the interior 30 degrees cooler, a shade does a lot more. When the temp rises, it also means a hot steering, wheel, dash door panels and seats. Extended periods of heat and UV rays will eventually lead to those important elements of a vehicle fading, cracking or warping. Even if you have an older model, in this day and age, you still probably have some electronics in your vehicle. Whether it’s a GPS, audio system or other accessory, built-up heat can affect how they work and their longevity. Since a shade makes it harder to see inside the vehicle, it also can help deter would-be thieves. For people who like to display a little personality or want to ensure their vehicle always looks its best, these coverings can often be personalize and come in many styles, shapes and colors.

How Do Sun Shades Protect Your Vehicle?

A custom windshield shade does a lot, but how do they work? No matter what material, color or style you prefer, they all work in a similar way. In general, some of the light entering a vehicle is reflected out as visible light, which does not generate heat. Unfortunately, what isn’t reflected out gets absorbed into the various materials inside the vehicle, which does generate heat and stays in the cab. Sun shades reflect light, which means less is being absorbed, helping to minimize heat buildup.

How to Properly Place Sun Shade

Installing a sun shade is usually a fast and easy task, but each style is a little different. If selecting a folding one, simply open it inside the vehicle and slide it down to the bottom of the dash. Many come with a notch to go around the mirror and stay secure when the sun visors are down. For roll-up versions, they may have suction cups or similar devices to keep them attached to the glass. When you don’t want to have to worry about storing them, an accordion-style can be mounted on either side of the window. Once up, the driver can easily pull it over and get instant protection.
