It is now legal for tractor trailers to have windows tinted with a product called LLumar AIR 80, is there a market out there, I have a tint shop on an interstate hwy. in Louisiana.

I have a tint shop in Lake Charles,Louisiana on interstate 210 bypass. I have bay doors that can easily drive tractor rigs inside for tint jobs with ceiling height of

There is a new product on the market that is LEGAL for commercial trucks to use, it is call LLumar AIR 80. It radiates heat away from the windows and reduces inside cab temperature by 30 degrees Fahrenheit!

also eliminates 99% of ultraviolet rays that cause skin cancer and deteriorates dash and other covered areas in the truck.

Just wondering if you think there is a large enough market for a sizable investment to make the "big truck bay" pay off?

Response: You said you have bays that could accommodate tractor trailers to a height of....

and you never stated the height.

Can a tractor trailer get in or not? 13' 6'

I don't know if there is a market for it where you are. If you were out West of Dallas Tx I would say yes.

We will see what kind of response you get here.

Also, you should get a high power CB radio or base station and mention it a few times a day on channel 19.

I wouldn't sink a big investment in it just yet until you test the market for interest in LA.

Take flyers to your local trucking companies and offer them or their drivers discounts to get it done.
