COMPLYING WITH THE HIGHEST SAFETY STANDARDS
Auto glass protects us from the elements and maximizes visibility, but did you know that the windshield plays a critical role in safety on the road?
Since automakers started making lighter, more fuel-efficient cars, some of the vehicle's overall structural support shifted to the windshield, which has become an integral part of the roof structure. A properly installed or repaired windshield is thus critical to your safety. Our Uniglass/Ziebart installers are certified and undergo ongoing training..
Your safety on the road depends on a windshield that has been properly installed and repaired. To serve you best, and in your best interest, UniglassPlus/Ziebart installers meet and even exceed established safety standards.
A high-quality windshield
Today's windshields play an increasingly important and complex structural role in a vehicle and they come in a wide variety of shapes with enhanced safety features to ensure the utmost protection.
At UniglassPlus/Ziebart, we install only windshields of the highest quality and only from OEM manufacturers. All our windshields are subject to the same quality tests as glass from the dealer and are recognized by the insurance industry.
Accept no substitutes. Insist on the right part for your vehicle.
Adhesives that meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS)
In a collision, an improperly mounted windshield may fail to hold and thus detach prematurely, resulting in injury to the driver and passengers. We use only auto glass adhesives manufactured by SIKA, the global leader in the field. These adhesives undergo all crash performance tests and meet FMVSS 208, 212, and 216 safety standards, which concern windshields overall.
FMVSS 208 Occupant crash protection
This standard relates to windshield support during air bag deployment on the passenger side.
FMVSS 212 Windshield retention
This standard measures windshield retention in a barrier crash.
FMVSS 216 Roof crush resistance
The windshield provides considerable roof strength and must meet the minimum support requirement for protecting occupants in the event of rollover.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
Choosing where to have your windshield repaired or replaced will be more important than ever, due to the new Advanced Driver Assistance Systems installed in most new vehicles. These systems use cameras often installed behind the windshield and sensors to ensure comfort and safety while driving. They are in place to facilitate driving and reduce the risk of accidents on the road. Let’s just call it a third eye of your vehicle!
Recalibrating the camera is a crucial step following a windshield replacement. It's not like forgetting to reconnect a rain sensor, it's about bringing the driving assistance systems back to their original settings. Failure to properly calibrate the ADAS camera can put your safety at risk.
Trust VitroPlus when it comes to keeping you safe. All of our installers follow a continuous training program, are thoroughly trained and use the best equipment to guarantee a professional camera calibration. You can leave safely and with complete peace of mind.
Installation by professionals
Today's windshields are more curved and complex. You must entrust their installation to professionals who understand their intricacies. Our installers are certified and participate in continuous training to keep them in tune with the latest technologies.
