Fact & Question
Is there a difference between auto
glass and regular window glass?
There is a very important difference between your auto
glass and glass used in homes and storefronts.
Your windshield is made with laminated
safety glass. A thin
layer of vinyl is
sandwiched between two pieces of glass.
This construction is designed to offer optimal safety in
a crash. This
process also makes it possible for us to perform chip repairs
when the damage is confined to the top layer of glass and small
enough to repair without compromising your safety.
In severe impact, your windshield will
shatter. The broken
pieces will adhere to the vinyl inner lining, preventing shards
of glass from injuring anyone in your vehicle.
The side and rear windows of your vehicle
are made of curved, tempered glass.
Tempered glass is heated then rapidly cooled, making the
glass up to 10 times stronger than ordinary window glass.
Tempered windows will break into very small, dull-edged
pieces on impact for your protection.
Do I need to
get my damaged windshield fixed right away?
It is important to repair your windshield as soon as
possible for your own safety.
Your windshield is much more than just a shield from wind
and road debris. It
is an important structural element of your vehicle.
In front end collisions, your windshield is the backboard
for the passenger side airbag.
An airbag deploys at speeds up to 150 to 200 miles per
hour. This force
must be absorbed by your windshield.
A damaged windshield could be dangerous to you and your
passengers in the event of an accident.
