Frequently Asked Questions

Use this list to get answers to common questions about our Heatshields.


Product Info

All of our HeatShields are made in the USA with our manufacturing plant located in Morgan Hill, California.

It all comes down to the construction and quality of the fabric we use. The idea is to provide a layer of "insulation" between your vehicle and the sun and that's exactly what we've created. Not to mention, our precise patterning techniques, computer aided cutting equipment and the best production team a company can ask for!

We've measured a temperature difference of as much as 40˚ F (25˚ C.), but you will feel an average temperature reduction in your car of about 25˚ F. To maximize the cooling effect check out our side and rear window Heatshields.

There is a two-year limited warranty on the HeatShield, which covers manufacturing and material defects – Proof of purchase is required. (e.g., material and/or velcro strap defect or the stitching is coming undone.)
If there was a fit issue, we will do our best to improve the pattern or get you a full refund if you prefer.
However, if there was no issue with the HeatShield fit yet you still wish to return it, you can do so within 30 days of purchase by contacting us by phone or email to initiate a partial refund. The partial refund will be for the cost of the HeatShield and Sales Tax (if applicable) minus a $5 restocking fee per item returned. You are responsible for arranging the shipping of the HeatShield back to us.

Heatshields for the vast majority of vehicle types are $39.95 including all side, rear, and top Heatshields. Due to the increased size and alternate production process of Semi-Truck Heatshields, the price for those windshield pieces is $59.95.

Our proprietary Heatshield material provides 100% UVA and UVB light protection. Please see the photo below of our test using a UVA/UVB light reader.

Our Silver and Gold Series Heatshields are made of the same material and perform equally well. The difference is purely cosmetic. The Silver Series features a silver reflective side with a white interior while the Gold Series features a gold reflective side with a black interior.

Many of today's newer vehicles are equipped with safety sensors mounted on the windshield and located around the rearview mirror. When a Heatshield's description says "w/ sensor" it means that the cutout is sized to account for this sensor. In most cases, these sensors are for a lane departure or forward collision warning system. Below are images showing windshields with and without mounted sensors.

This mostly applies to cargo vehicles or motorhome HeatShield patterns. "w/ R.V.M." means that the Heatshield has a cutout for a rearview mirror. Select this option if your vehicle has a rearview mirror attached to the windshield. "w/o R.V.M." means the Heatshield has no cutout for a rearview mirror. Select this option if your vehicle has a rearview mirror attached to the headliner or no rearview mirror at all.

The regular cab has a single row of seats and a single set of doors, one on each side. Extended cab (sometimes called super cab) pickups have an extra space behind the main seat, sometimes including small seats. Crew cab (sometimes called double or mega cab) pickups have a full back seat with two full size doors on both sides.

Installation Info

Simply unroll the Heatshield across the dash, lift it against the glass and bend it around the rear view mirror, then lower the sunvisors for support. To view the process and helpful tips, check out our install video. Click HERE

Bending your HeatShield to fit around your mirror is all a part of the simple installation process and will not damage your Heatshield. We design the HeatShield to fit around the rearview mirror in order to block out as much sunlight as possible.

Our side and rear window Heatshields are held in place with suction cups. For more information about our side and rear window Heatshields, check out this video: Click HERE

The HeatShield is designed to be rolled up for storage - NOT folded. Folding the HeatShield could compromise the integrity of the material and may cause premature wearing.
