According to the Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards Council (AGRSS), a vehicle’s windshield provides a significant amount of strength to the structural support in the cabin of the vehicle:
…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%. [source]
Keeping that in mind, take a look at the following interesting information about vehicle windshields.
Did you know that your windshield…
- Keeps the roof of your vehicle from crushing in on you in a rollover.
- Allows your vehicle’s airbags to properly deploy in the correct position.
- Prevents you and your family from being ejected in the event of a serious collision.
