Auto Glass Keeps You Safe
Many automobile owners don't realize how instrumental a car's windshield is when it comes to their safety. While its primary function of blocking wind, weather and road debris from the occupants inside while driving may be obvious, windshields also keep you safe in other crucial ways.
Did you know that it is estimated up to 70% of your car's structural integrity is provided by your vehicle's windshield in the event of a rollover? Improperly installed windshields have been known to completely pop off the vehicles in simple collisions. Imagine the impact an improperly installed windshield would have during a rollover.
OEM VS. OEE
Windshields and other pieces of auto glass vary in quality. The best quality auto glass is Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) glass. This type of glass is the exact same glass that automakers use and is found in your vehicle when it rolls off the assembly line.
Original Equipment Equivalent (OEE) is manufactured to meet the same specifications as OEM glass. However, since most modern windshields are curved, the glass may not fit correctly—OEE windshields may not line up exactly. The most common result from this mismatch is leaking.
