Windshield

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.

Size

59 inches x 31.5 inches

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).

Thickness

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.
