Safety

Windshield replacement is not regulated in the state of Texas. There is no training required by the state to install windshields. This is why it is important to be informed about the safety a windshield provides. The windshield is a significant strength and structural support system in the cabin of the vehicle. In a front end collision the windshield provides 45% structural integrity to the vehicle. In a rollover the windshield provides 60% to the structural integrity. The windshield is a significant partner to the safety restraint system of your vehicle. A properly installed windshield keeps the roof from crushing the occupants in a rollover collision. The windshield allows the airbags to deploy in the correct position to protect the occupants from ejection from the vehicle. If a vehicle is involved in an accident and the windshield was improperly replaced the windshield can be ejected from the vehicle, allowing debris from the accident into the cabin of the vehicle increasing serious injury to the passengers. It’s important for your families safety that your windshield be properly replaced. Its a matter of life or death..”
