Importance of the Windshield

When speaking of vehicle safety, most people think about the cars’
airbags and the structure of the vehicles skeleton – the stronger the
structure the safer the car. Most people would not think about the
cars windshield when listing the futures of the vehicle that determine
the drivers and passengers safety. The windshields’ function in the
overall safety of the vehicle is crucial. Most people think that the
function of the windshield is to keep heat and cool air inside the car
and to keep the rain water, snow, bugs, and other debris out. This is
true but the windshield is also an essential safety feature. The
windshield keeps the overall structure of the car in tact. It supports
the frame of the car and upon impact makes it more resistant. When the
car is involved in a rollover collision the windshield prevents the
roof of the car from collapsing on the passengers.

Furthermore the windshield supports the airbags, therefore when
replacing your windshield you must make sure that the installers know
what they are doing, because if they make a mistake and do not install
the new windshield properly your life will be in great danger in case
of an accident. Wizard Auto Glass employs only certified auto glass

Furthermore, in case of an accident, the windshield carries and
essential safety feature. If the passenger is not wearing a seatbelt,
or if the airbags fail to open, the windshield is made of two layers
of glass with polyvinyl material in between the two peaces of glass.
If the driver or passenger was to hit the windshield in a collision,
the layer of polyvinyl would prevent them from flying through and
would absorb their impact.
