I Can See Clearly Now, the Crack is Gone

Imagine living in a country where safety glass isn’t required on vehicles. If you can’t imagine why anyone would buy a car without safety glass, ask yourself why anyone would drive around with a cracked windshield.

It may seem more annoying to drive with a crack in your windshield than dangerous, but it is a dangerous proposition.

WindshieldSpot.com explains why it’s so important to get your windshield repaired or replaced right away.

  • Windshields make up almost half the rollover strength of some vehicles.
  • Windshields keep you inside your car and hazardous objects outside of it during an accident.
  • If your windshield is not in one piece and you are in a collision, your airbags may not deploy properly.

What is safety glass made of?

According to WindshieldSpot.com, your windshield is usually composed of two layers of curved glass. These sit on either side of a plastic laminate layer. Polyurethane is then used to attach the windshield to the car.

Using this type of material prevents the glass on the windshield from breaking into sharp shards of glass upon impact.

Here at Great Plains Auto Body, we care about your safety. And we know that one small problem like a crack in your windshield could prevent you from seeing potential dangers on the road. That’s why it is so important to have it fixed right away.

If the damage to your vehicle requires a little more than a windshield repair or replacement, call Great Plains Auto Body today at 402-334-7100 and schedule your appointment today.
