There are many different types of windscreen. National Windscreens PartscheckTM system takes account of many features and technology options when repairing or replacing a windscreen, ensuring we get glass selection right first time. These features can include: acoustic glass; ADAS cameras; demisting and rain sensors; heads up display; heated; solar reflective; tinted and more.
When we replace your windscreen we will calibrate your windscreen mounted ADAS camera at the same time; making sure your vehicle safety systems are working as intended. ADAS features are covered in detail on our dedicated ADAS page:ADAS Camera Calibration

Noise is transmitted through the vehicle’s glazing and comes from several sources.
- Air-pressure fluctuations against the windshield at highway speeds.
- Air impinging on the edges of the vehicle’s body panels.
- Other vehicles and environmental noise.
- Road noise and vibration; this is also transmitted through the body structure. Suppliers have developed vinyl interlayers with improved acoustic-damping qualities to help reduce noise.
