There are various kinds of automotive glass according to the different parts of a vehicle they are found in.
Miracle Auto Glass Center identifies the various kinds of auto glass and their different uses.
Windshield auto glass is the largest type of glass on your vehicle and seems to be the most important considering its function. It provides a barrier in a vehicle and protects its occupants. It keeps out oncoming wind and debris and ensures that the structure of your vehicle body is intact and in shape. A damaged windshield, therefore, poses a great danger to the driver, passengers and other road users as it compromises their safety.
Vent windows are the small triangular pieces of glass that have their own frame and are fitted into the window and door frames of a vehicle. They are found towards the rear of a vehicle and in older vehicles. Newer models have molded door glass replacing vent windows with a single piece of glass.
Side door windows are the pieces of glass at the two sides of a vehicle. They are found adjacent to passenger seats and may be rolled up or down depending on the choice of occupants. Side door windows may be controlled manually or electronically.
Quarter glass is the small window located in the rear body panel of a vehicle. Quarter glass usually can’t be opened.
Rear windshield is located at the back of a vehicle. They are not fixed in some vehicles and maybe lowered like door glass. In other vehicles, the rear windshield may have a wiper, defrosting wires or an antenna.
The different types of automotive glass have their various uses. They keep out wind, sun, rain and debris as well as give shape to a vehicle and protect its occupants.
