Cracked Windscreens Repair and Replacement

windscreen replacenetCracked or poorly installed windscreens are dangerous. Here are three reasons to have compromised auto glass replaced professionally:

1. Your windscreen prevents you from being ejected during an accident.
The safest place to be during a car accident is in the car. Your windscreen is an important barrier that keeps you from being ejected during a collision or roll over. A passenger ejected from a car or truck is more likely to be seriously injured. Cracked windscreens expose the laminate that joins the layers of glass in the windscreen, resulting in delamination. This dangerously reduces the structural integrity of a vehicle.

2. Your windscreen is a "backstop" for your passenger-side airbags.
In most new vehicles equipped with airbags, the passenger side airbag deploys upward and bounces off the windscreen glass to protect the passenger in a crash. When the airbag deploys, it does so at 150-200 miles per hour. That's fast. If a windscreen isn't strong enough.if it's cracked or improperly absorb the force of a deployed airbag, then that airbag won't be worth much at all.

3. Your windscreen supports the roof.
Windscreens do more than block wind and bugs. They're cleverly designed to prevent the roof from crushing in during a rollover accident. Industry experts have estimated that windscreens provide up to 70% of the structural integrity in a rollover accident. Is there any better reason to promptly replace a cracked or improperly installed windscreen? We didn't think so.
