International Truck Windshield Replacement
It takes an experienced technician to replace windshields on International Trucks. There are a few factors involved that make the replacement different than a regular passenger vehicle.
The windshields are much larger in size. Some windshield can reach 6 ft across, requiring more than one technician to install. To keep the strength because of the size the windshields are thicker than normal cars. To help with this, many model have a “split” windshield. Technically two separate windshields, a drivers side windshield and a passenger side windshield. This helps in many ways. It keeps the weight and size down, making it possible for one installer to handle. Also, if there is damage to one side it does not effect the other.
International Trucks as adopted some features from passenger vehicles into their windshields.
International Trucks Windshield replacement Options:
Heated Windshield- An electric heating element throughout the glass allowing to melt snow and ice without having to wait for the engine to warm up. You can see this feature if you look very close at the windshield. The heating element will be very thin copper wires in a tight wavy pattern.
Asymmetrically Strengthened Windshield- A windshield is composed of two pieces of glass with a laminate bonded between them. With Asymmetrically Strengthened Windshields the outside layer of glass is harder than the inside layer. The harder outside piece is more impact resistant, while the inside piece allows for impact absorption similar to the current windshield we know today.
Single Piece Windshield- One large windshield that spans the entire width of the cab. Similar to a passenger vehicle.
Split Windshield- The windshield is split into two windshields separated by a pillar. Drivers side windshield and passenger side windshield, depending on the specific International model. The same windshield may be used for either side.
