Healthy Windshields Keep You Safe

Cracked or poorly installed windshields are dangerous. Here are three reasons to have compromised auto glass replaced professionally:
  1. Your windshield prevents you from being ejected during an accident.
    The safest place to be during a car accident is in the car. Your windshield 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 windshields expose the laminate that joins the layers of glass in the windshield, resulting in delimitation. This dangerously reduces the structural integrity of a vehicle.
  2. Your windshield 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 windshield 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 windshield isn't strong enough—if it's cracked or improperly installed—to absorb the force of a deployed airbag, then that airbag won't be worth much at all.
  3. Your windshield supports the roof.
    Windshields 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 windshields 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 windshield? We didn't think so.
