  • Visibility – Poor visibility can be extremely dangerous in any situation. Dings and scratches that were once small can spread out, creating the need for windshield replacement.

  • Supports the passenger side airbag – Improper windshield installation can cause your windshield to become detached in an accident, hindering the ability of your passenger side’s airbag to deploy.
  • Provides cushioning in the event of an accident – The layer of polyvinyl in a windshield is made to be flexible, cushioning the impact of an accident and preventing you from being thrown from the vehicle. In the event that you require a windshield replacement, it is important to ensure that you are getting a quality product for maximum safety.
