A broken or improperly fitted windscreen poses a significant danger while driving on the road. Rear window and door glass are also essential to your safety and comfort. At Autoboys, we have internationally certified glass and the professional expertise you need to replace your auto glass quickly, affordably and to the highest industry standards.
Should your windscreen become damaged and need to be replaced, our professional technicians will provide the fast, efficient and professional auto glass fitment you need to get back on the road in no time.
Why a professionally fitted windscreen is essential?
Your windscreen plays a big role in keeping you and your passengers safe while driving. Not only does it enable you to see the road ahead clearly, shield you from the elements and protect you from flying debris, it’s also essential to maintaining the structural integrity of your vehicle.
In the event of an accident, a properly fitted windscreen can help prevent a roof- collapse in a rollover accident and allow airbags to inflate properly. Windscreens also play an important role in the handling of your car, providing up to 34% of torsional stiffness to withstand more pressure.
When to replace and when to repair windscreens?
If your windshield or another window in your vehicle has been broken due to burglary, accident or any other incident, it will need to be replaced entirely. However, if it is only chipped, it may be possible to repair it instead.
The decision to repair or replace your windscreen is based on a number of factors. These include the size of the chip, and where the damage is. These factors contribute to whether or not the glass will remain structurally sound after a repair.
Side and rear windows are made from laminated or toughened glass. If damaged, they can’t be repaired, and must be replaced.
We use only the highest-quality auto glassOur windshields are SABS approved, Shatterproof, DOT marked and E-Mark approved. Shatterproof glass is glass that has been manufactured to prevent splintering on impact. Our side and rear windows are made from laminated or tough tempered glass. All of our glass comes with a lifetime warranty, along with a 12-month warranty on workmanship.
Your vehicle in safe handsWe’ll make sure that your car is not damaged during the fitment process. We take protective measures to ensure the safety of your car. We’ll also vacuum your car when necessary to remove any potentially dangerous glass shards, as well as reapply stickers and rear-view mirrors that were originally attached to the glass.
Speedy turnaround times for your auto glass needsGlass replacement can usually be done the next day. If we don’t have the auto glass in stock, we’ll order it for you. Waiting times for delivery vary based on the brand and type of glass you require. The average waiting time for sourced glass is 1 day. Specialised or imported glass may take longer.
