It effectively shields you from dangers along the way.

While your car’s glass has been designed to withstand tremendous environmental stress, it can also break and be damaged. Kelowna Auto glass replacement is one critical job not everyone is qualified to do. You need an auto glass expert for a perfect job. You cannot afford to compromise your safety at any time with low quality and poorly installed auto glass.

The Role of Windshields for Cars   

The windshield is important because the auto glass serves multiple functions in your automobile, which include the following.

 

Protective shield.
The windshield is a crucially important safety feature of your vehicle. The glass that surrounds your car protects you and your passengers from the wind and elements like dust, rain, snow, stones, bugs, and stray debris when you travel. It effectively shields you from dangers along the way.

Clear vision.
Another important function of the windshield in your car is a clear, unobstructed view of the roads ahead that it provides. With a perfectly clear and functional windshield, you can drive your vehicle safely and conveniently, and avoid potentially dangerous situations, as well.

Structural strength.
You may not have known that the windshield is also a fundamental safety unit of your car. It lends 40% structural strength to the car roof. The windshield protects you in a rollover situation. It acts as a supportive beam that prevents the car roof from caving in and collapsing on you

Benefits of Laminated Glass in Cars and Vehicles

It prevents glass injury during a collision.
The glass used in the windshield for cars is typically laminated glass or safety glass. Laminated glass consists of two panes of glass with an interlayer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) in between. They are bonded together to form a single glass piece. In the event of a collision, the PVB in the glass prevents the windshield from shattering into shards like ordinary glass protecting you and your passengers.

It ensures complete safety during a collision.
Being highly resistant to penetration, the laminated glass prevents you from being ejected out of the car if you aren’t wearing a seatbelt in the event of an accident.

It doesn’t compromise visibility during impact on the glass.
Laminated glass localizes the damage on the glass to the point of impact so the visibility in other parts of the windshield is not compromised.

It blocks harmful UV rays.
Laminated glass in the windshield is also highly effective in blocking the harmful ultraviolet rays.

Signs You Need Kelowna Windshield Repair or Replacement

Follow these guidelines to determine whether the defect on your auto glass can be fixed through Kelowna windshield repair.

  • When the crack or chip that appears on the windshield is no larger than 10 mm across its diameter and not directly in the line of sight or affects the vision of the driver, it can be repaired. Line of sight is the imaginary area about 30 cm wide with its center located at the midpoint of the steering wheel.
  • The chip is smaller than 26 mm. A chip beyond this length may not hold up during a collision.
  • The chip is not within 7 cm of the windshield’s edge. A chip too close to the edge of the glass can potentially weaken the windshield as a whole.
  • When the cracked or chipped area is smaller than 3 x 6 inches in area (or about the size of a dollar bill)
  • When there are only up to two small defects on the auto glass.
  • When the windshield is not damaged, apart from being old and worn out.
  • When the condition exceeds the limits for repair, the glass cannot be patched up but will require the replacement of the windshield.

The Importance of Kelowna Windshield Repair

While it is still early, chips and cracks on car windshields that are within repair condition limits should be repaired to prevent accidents, major damage, and inconvenience. Many large and serious defects start small. Have them repaired before they grow or propagate to cause you trouble including safety issues, enormous expenses, and lack of peace of mind.

A chip on your windscreen, especially one that is directly in your line of vision, can obscure your view or distract you as you drive. It can lead to potential accidents. When ignored, a chip can magnify and develop into a full crack as a result of its exposure to strong wind resistance, vibration, other forms of mechanical stress, and temperature changes when you drive.

By having your windshield repaired, you will get your vehicle back into operation immediately and get you driving again. You will avoid great inconveniences like waking up earlier to commute to work, queuing to get a ride, dealing with long travel time, and the inability to be mobile, more efficient, and productive.

A professional Kelowna windshield repair company will try to repair your windshield whenever possible saving you money and time. Chips that are within the repair condition limits can be quickly and easily fixed. The good news is the strength and safety of the windshield are not compromised at all.
