Did you know?

Unlike your front windscreen, the glass for the back window is made in the same way that glass is made for the side window, vent window, or quarter glass: tempered glass.

The back car window glass is strengthened by thermal or chemical treatments so that it can withstand blunt force, but will shatter into tiny, granular chunks of glass instead of shards. This is a feature of tempered glass and is often called “safety glass” for this reason.

Unlike your windscreen, if your rear windscreen is damaged it will need to be replaced.

Premier Windscreens source glass that is manufactured to OEM standards, meaning the glass quality is to the exact standards as the window we are replacing

So if you have been victim of vandalism or an unfortunate break-in you can trust Premier Windscreens Edinburgh to get your car back the way it was in record time. We aim to replace rear windscreens within 24 hours of your call subject to stock.

We cater for all makes and models of cars, vans and trucks so whatever piece of glass is damaged be confident in knowledge Premier Windscreens can source.

F.A.Q.

Most common questions, require any other questions answered please drop us a message

Do i need a repair or replacement?

 Premier Windscreens always prefer to repair before replacing with new glass which saves time, money and the enviroment. Please visit our Windscreen Repair page for more infromation.

My windscreen is cracked is it still safe to drive?

Yes, modern windscreens are basically a thick layer of resin ( Polyvinyl butyral (or PVB) sandwiched between two layers of glass. When your glass is damaged its the outer layer that has cracked. So still safe to continue using until we can replace the windscreen. Obviously if the damage is in your field of vision we would not recommend driving and many police forces would consider it a motoring offence and you may be liable for points and/or fine. 

When can i drive my vehicle after windscreen replacement?

1 hour in most instances unless technician advises otherwise.  We use the best urethane in the business made my Sika.

Please keep do not wash your vehicle for 48 hours to allow the urethane to full cure after fitment. 

Are your technicians qualified?

Yes all our technicians hold ATA or NVQ accreditation.
