Did You Know? In many countries around the world, driving with a damaged windshield isn‘t just a risk—it’s against the law. When it comes to windshields, the stakes are high. A crack or chip that obstructs your view could lead to a fine. The criteria for what‘s considered obstructive and the fines for violations vary globally. North America also takes the concern over windshield integrity seriously. A number of states and provinces have laws specifically addressing this issue and these laws act as a safeguard for your journey. By ensuring your windshield is in top condition, you can comply with the law and keep everybody on the road safe. 🙌

Did you know? New York City, renowned for its iconic skyline filled with glass skyscrapers, has been pivotal in the evolution of window cleaning! 🪟

In the 1930s, NYC was already bustling with over 3,000 window cleaners, leading the way in keeping those towering glass facades sparkling. Initially, window cleaning involved simple tools such as a bucket, soap, and a squeegee while balancing on ledges. As skyscrapers grew taller, it became really important to clean windows safely and quickly. Today, the industry uses sophisticated equipment like telescopic poles, water-fed systems, and aerial work platforms. It always fascinates us at XYG that everything about the architectural glass is forever improving!

As an architectural glass manufacturer, we feel proud to be part of NYC‘s amazing landscape. We have had several projects in NYC including The Leyton at 1059 3rd Ave and a condo building at 646 11th Ave. It tickles our minds when we think about the glass we manufactured gets cleaned and shines the City of New York. ✨

Facing windshield woes? Let‘s simplify your insurance terms! Here are some key terms to make the first step of your insurance process easier.

❇️ Deductible: This is the amount you pay out of pocket before your insurance kicks in. Some policies might have a separate, often lower, deductible for glass damage.

❇️ Collision Coverage: If your glass damage is due to a road mishap, this part of your policy comes into play. Remember, the coverage details can vary depending on who’s at fault.

❇️ Glass-Only Claim: Some insurers offer this – it‘s a claim specifically for glass damage. The great part? It might not affect your premium like a regular claim.

❇️ State-Specific Rules: Remember, insurance rules can vary by state. In some places, there might be no deductible for windshield replacement to encourage timely repairs for safer driving.

❇️ Comprehensive Coverage: This is what usually saves the day if your windshield gets damaged due to reasons other than a collision. Think of things like a tree branch falling or a stray baseball.

Your windshield is a safeguard of your driving experience, and your safety is what XYG cares about the most. That is why we take immense pride in providing aftermarket windshields that match the reliability of OEM products but at a more accessible price point.

Before you make any decisions, we highly recommend you check your policy and have a chat with your insurance provider to understand what your coverage looks like. Drive safe and stay informed. 🚘

Last week, we discussed safe methods for de-icing your windshield. This week, let`s focus on techniques you should avoid to prevent damage.

🙅 Hot Water
Avoid pouring hot water or using a torch on your windshield. These methods can cause thermal shock, leading to cracks or weakening the glass`s integrity. Such damage often necessitates costly auto glass repair or replacement.

🙅 Metal Scrapper
Using a metal scraper can scratch the glass and damage the wiper blades. Similarly, never use keys, knives, or ice picks for snow and ice removal, as these can also cause significant harm.

🙅 Salt
Applying salt may leave a cloudy residue, impairing visibility. Additionally, salt can corrode mouldings, degrade windshield wiper edges, and damage your car`s trim and paint.

As we covered last week, the key is to be patient. Warm up your car, give it 10 minutes and then swipe away the snow and ice. Stay safe and warm this winter. 💫

#Windshield101 #AutoGlass #WinterCarCare #XYGNorthAmerica

De-icing your car might seem like a chilly chore, but with a bit of patience and our simple 1-2-3 method, it`s a breeze! Keep calm and follow these steps to ensure a safe, clear view on your winter drives.

1. Warm-Up Your Car
· Start your engine & activate the defroster.
· Adjust airflow to recirculate & set heat to max.
· Turn on the heated windshield & side mirrors feature, if equipped.
· Allow your car to warm up for 10 minutes.

2. Swipe Away Snow & Ice
· Use a rubber squeegee, plastic scraper, or soft bristle brush.
· Avoid metal scrapers – they can scratch the glass.
· Be gentle to avoid damaging your windshield.

3. Apply a Water-Based Solution
· If desired, apply a commercial glass deicer or your DIY mix.
· DIY mix: Combine 70% isopropyl alcohol & 30% water, with a dash of dish soap.
· It prevents melted ice and snow from refreezing on your windshield.

One last thing: don’t forget to clear off your headlights, windows and taillights. Now that your car is ice-free, you`re all set for a safe and warm journey! 🚗

As the world of cars evolves with cutting-edge technology, windshields are not far behind. Today`s automotive glass is smarter, safer, and more innovative than ever before.

With most vehicles now equipped with ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), the windshields play a crucial role. The sensors primarily placed on the windshield detect the nearby vehicles, road hazards and obstacles.

Some models now come with the HUD (Heads-Up Display) feature, which projects the important driving information onto the glass. This technology allows the driver to check information such as speed, fuel level, speed limit, and navigation instructions while driving.

At XYG, we are constantly updating our product line to stay ahead. Our windshields are engineered to NAGS specifications, ensuring you get the best in quality and innovation.

The Nanning Wuxu International Airport serves as a gateway to Nanning City, connected to the city by a high-speed rail line. The design fuses elements of airplane and bird wings, creating a dynamic structural appearance. Inside, natural light filters through a diagrid ceiling, while the airside offers panoramic views of airport operations. It was a pleasure for XYG to take part in this amazing project and contribute to its modern and natural aesthetic.
