The windshield or windscreen of an aircraft, car, bus, motorbike, truck, train, boat or streetcar is the front window, which provides visibility while protecting occupants from the elements.

Since a car windshield is designed to fit a specific vehicle perfectly, the windshield size differs as well. However, most manufacturers follow the industry standard of a standard windshield’s measurements, which is 59 inches x 31.5 inches (1).


For years windshields have been comprised of two pieces of glass approximately 2mm thick with an approximately 1mm layer of vinyl sandwiched in-between. Today, many windshields include another thin, sound absorbing vinyl layer that helps reduce road noise. Now technology and driver safety intersect on the windshield.
