DIRECT GLAZED WINDSCREENS

WHAT DOES A WINDSCREEN DO?

Apart from the obvious, like keeping the wind out of your face and filling a hole in the vehicle, a correctly fitted windscreen - and other vehicle glass will:

  • * Form part of the structural rigidity of the vehicle.
  • * Help prevent the vehicle occupants from being ejected from the vehicle in the event of an impact.
  • * Act as a deflector for passenger air-bags;
  • * Contain radio and satellite navigation antenna and heating elements.
  • * House moisture sensor technology.
  • * Act as a sound insulator against road, and outside noise.
  • * All of the above functions are achieved through the use of high performance, specialist adhesives and good quality glass products.

HOW IS THE GLASS FITTED?

Most modern vehicles have fixed vehicle glass (Directly Glazed) that is, windscreens, back and sometimes side glass that are 'glued' or bonded directly to the vehicle. In order to retain all safety features and multi-functional roles played by glass and adhesives in modern vehicles, it is essential that trained, and time-served technicians carry out all installations. Ensure your vehicle is being treated correctly by using an experienced and qualified installer to replace your automotive glass.
