Automotive glass is widely recognised as an important factor in car safety. Since the early '80s, it has been mandatory to equip automobiles with laminated-glass windscreens, which crack, but remain intact when broken. Saint-Gobain Sekurit's innovations provide even more protection by applying the same technology to side windows.
In collisions, 30% of fatalities are linked to partial or complete ejections from vehicles (source: University of Birmingham survey). However, 66% of ejections occur through side windows, typically made of tempered glass, which shatters into blunt fragments when subjected to shock. Our laminated side windows reduce the risk of ejection.
When coupled with our wide range of glass coatings, Saint-Gobain Sekurit's auto glass can improve safety even more by heightening your visibility in all weather conditions.
