The auto glass in your vehicle does much more than keep the wind and weather out of your car; it actually plays a key role in your vehicle's safety system. Prior to the 1970s, the steel skeleton of a vehicle played the most vital role in keeping passengers safe. But in the lighter, more fuel efficient cars of today, the steel skeletons have been replaced with lighter materials and the auto glass has now become another key role in keeping vehicle passengers safe.
The glass used in vehicles is not a typical piece of glass - it's actually safety glass that's specially designed so that it won't leave jagged edges and sharp shards when it breaks. The windshield, an especially important safety component, helps support the roof of the vehicle in the event of a rollover, and also helps ensure proper passenger-side airbag deployment.
It's important that you always have an experienced technician install or replace your auto glass. If glass isn't properly installed you can compromise some of its safety features and put yourself and your passengers at risk.
