A Cracked Windshield is a safety hazard!

Winter weather conditions contribute to an increase in auto accidents as well. If your windshield is cracked, the overall safety of your vehicle may be compromised. “Many people don’t realize that their car’s windshield contributes to the vehicle’s structural integrity by supporting the roof during a rollover,” says Leo Cyr, vice president of the National Glass Association’s (NGA) Auto Glass Division.

If the windshield is dislodged during a rollover, roof crush may be more severe. In addition, some vehicles are equipped with passenger side airbags that use the windshield for support during deployment. A damaged or improperly installed windshield may render that air bag ineffective when needed most.

ABC’s 20/20 did a Special Report on Windshield safety, which pointed out that many auto glass shops are not fully trained in the safe and correct methods of installation. You can rest assured that City Glass is Tacoma’s best choice for a proper installation according to the highest standards of safety.  Watch this report here.2020

However, one little known danger of passenger side airbags is often overlooked. That’s the danger of airbag failure immediately following a windshield replacement or an improperly replaced windshield.

When an impact occurs, the passenger side airbag is designed to first bounce off of the CrackedRVViewwindshield before bouncing back and cushioning the passenger. The problem that could happen if a windshield has just been replaced is that the adhesive used to bond the windshield to the car could fail. If the adhesive doesn’t hold the windshield in place, the windshield will pop out when the passenger airbag deploys. The airbag will then continue forward and deflate on the hood of the car. The passenger’s face will collide with the metal airbag box located in the dashboard rather than a soft pillow of air as expected.

We are beyond thrilled with the product quality and service we received from City Glass. First of all, out of the 3 glass companies we received quotes from, City Glass was the quickest to respond to our request for a quote, quickest to get us a free estimate, the quickest quoted turnaround time and was BY FAR the best price compared to their competitors ($700 less than the closest estimate, and $1000 less than the largest estimate)!

Today their professional installers installed our frameless glass shower door. They were right on time, very courteous, did a fantastic job on the install and it took them less than an hour! We could not be happier or more impressed with our experience with City Glass. We will be sure to refer our friends and family, and will most definitely be City Glass customers for all of our future glass needs.
