What Role Does The Windshield Play In Providing Safety?
- Windshields Provide Support for the Airbag
In the event of a cracked or loose windshield, the airbag cannot deploy properly because it does not receive proper pressure. Most people don’t know that if it is installed correctly, the windshield aids the airbag in deploying properly and saving your life during an accident. This is why maintaining a strong and intact windshield is essential at all times.
- It is Responsible for Supporting the Cars Roof
An integral part of the car’s frame is the windshield. This supports the roof by holding it in place and connecting it to it. The windshield that covers the front part of the car is enough to prevent the roof from caving in when the car is involved in an accident or collision. At first, roofs were supported by steel rods or pillars making it easier to be crushed. This is another reason to keep the windshield in proper working condition.
- Impact is Absorbed
As a result of an accident, you can be thrown forward by the force of the impact. In some major accidents, you even lose control of the car. In spite of this, the windshield ensures that you do not experience much damage as a result of the force of contact. Laminated windshields are constructed by adding two layers of tempered glass followed by a PVB layer. PVB increases the durability of the windshield and assists in the bending process to prevent it from shattering. By absorbing most of the shock, auto glass helps to prevent you from being ejected from the vehicle and being seriously injured.
- The Windshield Acts as A Blocking Mechanism
The windshield covers the front part of the car completely to protect you from changing weather conditions. Along with blocking dust, road debris, and small rocks from entering the vehicle with the potential of getting into your eyes. It is being treated today to absorb the harmful UV rays of the sun and protect you from the heat. Driving safely is made easier with clear visibility!
