Tesla’s have frameless windows, which means the glass edges are exposed and not protected by a door frame. Because of this, it’s essential to ensure all the edges of the film, once installed, are correctly cut so the film doesn’t get caught on anything that might brush the glass, causing the film to peel.
Due to the windows being frameless, the windows automatically drop down an inch when you open the door and then back up once the door is closed. This is so that the edges don’t hit when the doors open and close and also to stop wind noise while the electric car is moving. Because of this, we make sure the window tint is long enough to go down far enough below the beginning of the door trim and door rubbers to make sure it doesn’t catch on the door rubber when the door opens, but also keep it short enough, so it doesn’t begin to peel from being to long and catching when the doors open and close.
