Why a professionally fitted windscreen is essential?
Your windscreen plays a big role in keeping you and your passengers safe while driving. Not only does it enable you to see the road ahead clearly, shield you from the elements and protect you from flying debris, it’s also essential to maintaining the structural integrity of your vehicle.
In the event of an accident, a properly fitted windscreen can help prevent a roof- collapse in a rollover accident and allow airbags to inflate properly. Windscreens also play an important role in the handling of your car, providing up to 34% of torsional stiffness to withstand more pressure.
When to replace and when to repair windscreens?
If your windshield or another window in your vehicle has been broken due to burglary, accident or any other incident, it will need to be replaced entirely. However, if it is only chipped, it may be possible to repair it instead.
The decision to repair or replace your windscreen is based on a number of factors. These include the size of the chip, and where the damage is. These factors contribute to whether or not the glass will remain structurally sound after a repair.
Side and rear windows are made from laminated or toughened glass. If damaged, they can’t be repaired, and must be replaced.
