Fall Windscreen Protection Tips

Fall Windscreen Protection Tips

Your windscreen is one of the first lines of protection while your drive. It allows you and your passengers to be protected from the elements during your journey, while also keeping hazards out of the driver’s view.  Your car’s windscreen also increases the stability of the car frame and offers an extra line of defense in case of an accident. During the fall, there are many changes in the climate as well as in the type of hazards you will encounter on the road, so it’s important to take note of our fall windscreen protection tips.

Windscreen Cleaning

Cleaning your wipers and your windscreen on a regular basis ensures that you have a clear viewing pane while also allowing you to check for any issues that may need to be replaced. Avoid using cleaning products that contain ammonia or acids since it may damage the plastic on the wipers or the tint on your glass. Always inspect your windscreen for chips, cracks or warping, and check your wipers for erosion or tears.

Avoidable Road Hazards

Your windscreen protects you from debris that can become airborne on the road, and while you can’t avoid everything, there are ways to limit potential damage to your windscreen.  Avoid driving too close to the car in front of you so that anything that flies up from the tires has a chance to decrease its speed before hitting your windscreen. Don’t drive behind commercial or loader trucks, their tires have a tendency to kick up rocks that can easily chip your windscreen, resulting in windscreen replacement .

Fall Temperature Changes

Changes in temperature can often add stress to your car glass. When the weather is very hot, but your car is cold inside your glass can have a hard time coping. The same goes in the winter, when there may be snow or heavy rain outside, while the heat is on the inside. The stress can weaken a windscreen that already has cracks or chips, and it can also cause the seals around your windscreen to loosen over time. To help reduce the stress, when you first start your car, drive around for a while before you adjust the internal temperature. This gives your glass time to adjust which reduces the stress on the frame. When possible, look for a temperature controlled parking area such as a garage or indoor parking during inclement weather.
