Will I have a long wait time for you to order my new windshield? Signature Shield maintains a large windshield inventory that spans more than 380 of the most popular models used in vehicles on the road today. Most windshields are installed less than 24 hours after calling. Can temperature cause auto glass damage? Extreme temperatures can cause existing small cracks and chips to spread and further compromise the integrity of the glass, and therefore your safety. That’s why you should repair any glass damage as soon as it occurs. What are some government regulations that apply to windshields? Your vehicle has been built to help protect you in the event of an accident. All repair work done to your car is regulated by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) to ensure that all parts and their installation meet the performance requirements that contribute to your safety. This includes all auto glass repairs and replacements. Your windshield also supports the inflation and performance of passenger-side airbags. The passenger-side airbag deploys upward and off the windshield at speeds up to 200 mph. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards require adhesives to be nearly six times stronger for cars with passenger-side airbags. Signature Shield uses the highest quality premium adhesive.
