Shatterprufe® windscreens are more than just laminated glass protection. All windscreens are shatterproof by nature but only Shatterprufe® is the industry-
Prufe of Laminated Glass Protection Quality
Shatterprufe® windscreens use a vinyl interlayer placed between outer layers of safety glass. Our laminated glass products are constructed to hold windscreens together in accident situations and prevent debris and dangerous shards of glass penetrating your car’s interior. This glass protection ensures security and safety in any kind of impact. This attention to detail and your safety is one of the reasons why we have become the nationally acclaimed supplier of high quality auto glass.
Due to the way windshields are manufactured and mounted in vehicles, the amount of stress around the outer 50 mm perimeter is significantly greater than inside that area and will fracture 2.5 times easier than the rest of the windshield. Most replacements are from an Edge Crack, which occurs because the first 50 mm around the outer perimeter of windshields have 2 manufacturing stress areas.
During the manufacture of a windscreen, controlled compressive stresses are introduced along the perimeter of the glass. This makes it more resistant to mechanical stresses e.g. during installation or body twisting of the vehicle and to thermal stresses applied to the glass as a result of thermal fluctuations.
