We seem to be a generation addicted to screens.
From TV to smart phones, tablets to laptops – our heads are buried in one screen or another throughout most of the day.
But at The Scrappers we’re more concerned about another screen – windscreens.
Also known as windshields, they were developed to protect motorists and passengers from dirt and flying debris.
In today’s world the windscreen is made from safety glass. But this wasn’t always the case; early windshields were made out of regular glass meaning they could cause devastating injuries. A string of lawsuits lead to stronger windshields being developed which were designed to shatter. But they were very sensitive meaning the smallest stone chip could break the window. In 1919 Henry Ford sorted out the problem by using laminated glass.
And now windscreens are designed to shatter into tiny pieces safely to avoid causing injury.
Which work incidentally as the author of this piece can vouch for first-hand having had their head go through a windscreen during a road traffic accident.
The Scrappers deal with replacement windscreens as we often salvage them from other vehicles.
Buying a second hand windscreen is a far cheaper option than buying new so why not see what we have in store or have a look online on our website.
