Safety Tips and Other Information
Damaged windshield does not have the same structural integrity as non-damaged windshield. Most people do not realize this, but windshield plays a major part in the safety of your vehicle. A damaged and/or an incorrectly installed windshield can prove fatal to you and your family.
If you happened to be involved in a front end collision, windshield provides up to 45% of the structural integrity of the cabin of the vehicle. This means that airbags will deploy properly, cushioning the passengers.
If you happened to be involved in a rollover accident, windshield provides up to 60% of the structural integrity of the cabin of the vehicle. This keeps the roof from crushing in on you, and prevents you and your family from being ejected.
An improperly installed or repaired windshield will break off upon impact. Most of the force will be absorbed by you, since there is no windshield that is supposed to do that.
