Irvine Back Glass Replacement
Back glass is mostly made of tempered glass. Thus, its breakage is different from windshield breakage. Tempered glass (back glass) “explodes” into small pieces when it breaks while laminate (windshield) mostly remains intact. This is designed for safety purposes whereby you are not trapped in your vehicle.
