“When it comes to windshields, size does matter. A windshield that is 71 inches tall and 104 inches wide will require more than one technician to complete the replacement process safely.
“I’ve been doing RV glass for the past 35 years myself,” says Dan Boehmer, president of Rolladeck Industries. The company’s Rolladeck Windshield Setting System can be used with regular windshields and large windshields for RVs, buses, semi-trucks, international work, and heavy equipment vehicles, including cranes, dump trucks and excavators.
Many RV glasses have direct bonding and a decorative bonding called beauty bead. Boehmer says that the beauty bead must also be replaced with the windshield. First, he sets the new windshield in the base with urethane, tapes it, and allows two hours for the urethane to cure.”

Installing windshields on RV’s and other fleet vehicles like semi-trucks can be a real challenge for some auto glass shops. Larger size aside, the process isn’t exactly the same as passenger vehicles and often requires further attention to detail. The importance of securely installing these larger windshields can not be emphasized enough.
At Advantage Auto Glass we provide auto glass replacement for many different types of vehicles. If your commercial vehicle needs a new windshield call us at 612-343-8984 to set up an appointment.
