Unique Set of Tests

The glass used in motorsport windscreens is subject to a unique set of tests and pressures. Not only must it be of the highest quality possible, but it must also react well to impacts of all kinds at exceptionally high speeds as well as allowing the driver to navigate the course expertly in all weathers without letting them down. It’s those constant stresses that separates motorsport windscreens from the norm.

Flat or Curved Safety Glass Constructions

Tyneside Safety Glass can create flat or curved safety glass constructions for the windshields and windows of motorsport vehicles, and our facility and team can also handle a majority of bespoke elements upon request. These include optional screen printing as well as specialist CNC edgework and routing. There’s also the option of ordering glass with drilled holes or fully integrated heating elements should they be required, and it’s these extras that make us the only curved laminated automotive windscreen manufacturer in the UK.

High-Quality Heated Windscreens

Top quality heated windscreens helps to control condensation, de-misting and de-icing the glass during the race to increase visibility. This in turn improves overall safety for the driver and others in the car, such as a navigator. As auto glass manufacturers we utilise our top of the range processing machinery to lay heated tungsten wires into an interlayer made of Poly Vinyl Butryl (PVB) The PVB is then laminated between sheets of glass, rendering the tungsten invisible yet highly effective in any situation that may arise.
