Glass America is one of the largest independently-owned automobile glass replacement and repair companies in the country. The five-minute television segment was filmed on location at one of their facilities in Atlanta, Georgia. The video includes interviews with Paxton, Illinois native, David Rohlfing, CEO and President of Glass America, and Joel Timmons from Profitable Glass Solutions in Dayton, Ohio who is a board member for AGRSS (Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards). Also featured is Jon Fransway from Eden Prairie, Minnesota, brother of the late Jeanne Fransway of Wisconsin who died in a rollover accident due to the windshield on her car popping out. The Fransway story is a tragic example of the consequences of an improperly installed windshield.

Glass America’s Eye on America TV segment features a demonstration of proper windshield installation, and educates viewers about the important questions to ask before having your windshield replaced or repaired.

“The windshield is an integral part of the vehicle’s occupant crash protection system and helps keep passengers inside the vehicle during a collision. Your windshield is classified as a safety device because it works in conjunction with the seats, seatbelts and airbags to protect you in an accident. The windshield also provides structural support to the vehicles roof in a rollover accident and acts as a backboard when the passenger side airbag deploys,” says David Rohlfing. “The quality of the glass, the installation adhesive, and an auto glass technician’s training are all integral components to ensure a safe auto glass installation.
