The Role of the Windshield in a Car’s Safety Feature

Why You Should Always Hire a Professional for Your Windshield Replacement & Repair Needs

A car’s windshield is a very important component, because it not only protects the driver and the passengers but also provides structural support for the car. Many car owners underestimate the importance of regular windshield inspection. Many windshields develop small cracks which are almost invisible to the naked eye; however, these cracks can severely diminish the structural integrity of the windshield. Additionally, most of these fissures will soon start to expand into visible and dangerous cracks. When this happens, you need to bring your car to a reputable windshield replacement & repair service provider.

The replacement or repair process plays a crucial role in the strength and durability of the new windshield. A poorly installed auto glass can soon develop cracks or fissures, or even worse, it can affect your car’s safety overall. Poorly installed windshields can be the cause of severe accidents. A windshield performs 3 important functions in the event of an accident.

It keeps the driver and passengers from being thrown out of the car If the driver or a passengers is thrown out of the car in the moment of impact, he or she can sustain severe injuries because the car can roll over them. A quality windshield helps keep the passengers inside the vehicle, even if they don’t wear their seat belts. Additionally, thanks to its ability to stay in one piece, the windshield can act as a cushion for the passengers and driver at the moment of impact.

It provides reinforcement for the airbag deployment Airbags rely on the sturdiness of the windshield. If the windshield pops out of the vehicle, the airbag will not have a proper base, so it will go out of the car as well. As you can imagine, an airbag that does not stay in the car at deployment is useless.

A properly installed windshield provides up to 60% of the roof’s crush protection Some of the most dangerous accidents are the ones where the car rolls over. A low-quality windshield can make the roof cave in, crushing the people inside.
