Auto Sunshade Facts

Auto Sunshade Facts Everyone loves a sunny day, at least until those bright, powerful Ultraviolet rays burn, melt and fade our car interiors and blind and broil passengers.

You wouldn't stick your hand into a hot oven without an oven mitt. The same notion holds true for getting inside your car on a hot day. The combination of extreme heat, direct sunlight and closed windows can turn your parked car into a virtual oven. Interior temperatures can reach dangerous levels in just 15 minutes.

Not only can this be extremely uncomfortable, UV radiation can cause rapid aging of your vehicle's interior. Early cracks can form in your leather and vinyl. Your fabric upholstery fades, plastic parts dull.. all of this in only 2-3 years!

On a typical 89 F day, a dashboard can heat up to 192F, and the steering wheel to 191. The same car, using an accordion style sunshade, can reduce its dashboard temperatures by 43 F.

The list of sun shades to protect you and your vehicle is long. Accordion fold, collapsible, twisting or spring-loaded, front, side or rear, holographic, or reflective, you name it. Sunshades come in all shapes, sizes, fabrics and functions.

When the temperature rises and the heat becomes unbearable, take a minute to pop-up a sunshade! What a difference it will make. Top of the Line offers Sunshades in three different categories.
