Heavy Equipment Glass Replacement

Heavy Equipment Glass Replacement Sacramento, CA

Construction Equipment Glass Window Replacement Sacramento

Just like with cars, heavy equipment and construction equipment use glass to protect the drivers and operators from the dangers of flying debris. It could be argued that the glass on heavy equipment is even more necessary than the glass in cars because the particles and bits that are likely to fly at you on a job site are a lot bigger and more dangerous than the bugs that your windshield keeps out of your face on the road. Whether one kind of glass is more important than the other, though, is beside the question. The point is that both heavy equipment and passenger vehicles make use of glass for protection.

And just like with cars, heavy equipment glass can break and needs to be replaced. There are many things that can damage a window or windshield on a piece of construction equipment. A flying rock can put a big crack in the window, and the fact is that a heavy equipment windshield is actually very likely to come into contact with a piece of rock or debris that is big enough to cause some pretty serious damage.

If you have a damaged window on your construction equipment, you cannot use the equipment. The fact that the glass has not completely shattered yet is not an excuse. Once the structural integrity of the glass has been compromised, you can’t continue using the vehicle until the glass has been replaced. Damaged glass does not provide the protection that un damaged glass does. It can break at any moment, and even a small amount of pressure or a small impact could cause the window to shatter.

As a business owner, it is your responsibility to make sure that the people you are responsible for are not put in unnecessary danger. If your construction equipment has damaged glass, then any small amount of pressure on them can cause the glass to shatter. If you have any small amount of damage to your glass, you need to replace it so that your crew will be safe. Trying to work with damaged glass can put your crew in danger, and it can also get you stuck with hefty fines.
