On the Arrive Alive website we have increased our focus on windscreen safety through the kind assistance of road safety partner PG Glass. Many of us neglect the importance of windscreen safety and are unaware of the importance of the windscreen in the structural integrity of our vehicles.
We would like to share a few “Did you know’s” on windscreen safety and info on how the professionals from PG Glass, Shatterprufe and LLumar can assist towards increased safety on the road:
Did You Know?
- That windscreens made with virgin vinyl provide more protection than those made with recycled vinyl? Shatterprufe uses only virgin vinyl and could save your life.
- That a substandard windscreen can cause optical illusions that could impact negatively on your judging of distances while driving? Shatterprufe windscreens are thoroughly tested to prevent optical illusions.
- That a substandard windscreen can cause optical distortion that could increase eye fatigue and cause headaches while driving? Shatterprufe windscreens are thoroughly tested to prevent optical distortion.
- That a badly fitted windscreen can cause you or a passenger to be thrown out of the car in case of an accident? Fitted correctly by PG Glass service centres, Shatterprufe windscreens do not fly out on impact, protecting the occupants of a vehicle against ejection.
- That airbags in vehicles are dependent on the proper fitting of the windshield to keep it in place to protect you effectively? If the windshield pops out, the airbag goes with it. Fitted correctly by PG Glass service centres, Shatterprufe windscreens do not fly out on impact, enabling the airbag to protect you.
