Your windshield a vital safety feature. 45% of the structural integrity of the cabin of the vehicle.


ABC News Special Report with Barbara Walter – Windshield Safety

  • In a front end collision the windshield provides up to 45% of the structural integrity of the cabin of the vehicle and in a rollover, up to 60%.
  • In a 1982 General Motors concluded that a vehicle lost about 1/3 of its roof strength if the windshield bond came loose during a rollover accident. For more information: – www.safewindshields.org

Today, more than ever, vehicles depend on the glass windshield to add to its structure and strength as a whole. The windshield is a major part of the support system and energy management in a collision.

Have you ever noticed why the windshield is much larger in size and more aerodynamically slanted? It’s because of energy management and occupant protection in the cab of the vehicle.
