Broken and Cracked Windshields

 

Broken and Cracked Windshields

Much of our County has gravel roads. We have a mix light truck fleet but it consists mostly of Dodge 1/2 tons and 3/4 tons.

We seem to be going through alot of windshields. I was looking for any advice on trying to reducing the amounts of replacements.

Thanks.

We have purchased a kit to do rock chip repairs before the become cracks. That has helped reduce our replacement of winshields.

As long as the crack is not over a certain size or obstructs the driver's view, we also repair these cracks, but we utilize a vendor for this work. It's a big savings over replacing windshields when not necessary.

Is there a specific Kit that you folks can recommend?

I just Googled "windshield guard". Maybe try this product out: http://www.edgeguard.com/What-is-EG.htm

We simply replace ours vs. "free" insurance policy but it does cost us downtime.
