Customising your van windows to stand out on the road

Van window customisations have come a long way. You're no longer limited to decals or basic tints. Custom replacement windows, specialist designs and unique tinting can all give your van that extra character it needs to really stand out.

Tinted windows

Window film is an inexpensive way to update your van’s look. As well as the customary dark blue or brown tints, you might want to consider vivid colours like red or violet, or opt for metallic chrome film. While you can buy DIY film kits, it's better to have window tints applied by a professional.

Window graphics

One-way window graphics are another relatively low-cost option. Custom window graphics can be one of many great ways to use your van’s mobile advertising space, turning your windows into moving mini-billboards you can take on the road.

Replacement windows

On the pricier end of options, you could consider replacing some of your windows. Depending on the model you drive and how drastic you want your conversion to be, you might choose to install additional windows, such as decorative portholes.

Customising your van windows: safety and legal considerations

This goes for any customisation you can add to your Renault van, but consider whether these changes are legal and/or might have an impact on insurance premiums and general roadworthiness. 

Note that, according to law, the front windscreen and front side windows of your van must allow at least 70% of the light to pass through. Rear windows do not have any specific requirements.

Furthermore, many creative van owners have adorned their vehicle with classy upgrades, only to get a nasty surprise when they needed to make an insurance claim and found that their vehicle was no longer covered. Check with your insurance company before you install window modifications, as you may find your premiums are affected.
