Windows - Cars
Types of windshields include windscreens, side and rear windows and roof glass panels on some vehicles. Side windows can be fixed or be raised and pulled by pressing a button or switch (with power windows) or by a mechanical hand crank. Transparent and removable sunroofs in some cars can be considered as an extension of the windshield.
Some vehicles include factory tunirane (dimming) for the rear and side rear windows. Standard glass could pose a potential danger to vehicle occupants. Autoglass is four to five times more rigid than standard glass and does not break into sharp pieces. Autoglass is produced through a process of extreme heating and cooling, making it harder than normal glass.
This type of glass tempering allows it to break into small pieces oval when shattered. This eliminates the danger of sharp edges and injury to the driver and his companions. Thanks to this process, automotive glass is often referred to as safety glass. The cars use a different type of safety glass for front and rear windscreen than side windows do. The front and rear windows are mostly made of laminated glass of two layers, between which is placed special film.
