Some of the main causes of damage can result from:
- A stone or other object striking the exterior layer of the windscreen, or
- Stress on the truck’s body caused by twisting, generally during an accident.
- Importantly, you should have your windscreen replaced as soon as possible even if it has the tiniest chip. This will ensure the prevention of future damage to your trucks windscreen.

Truck Windscreen Replacement Standards
To determine if a windscreen should be replaced or repaired, the area of windscreen swept by the wipers may have bullseyes and star fractures up to 16mm in diameter and cracks up to 150mm long which do not penetrate more than one layer of the glass in a laminated windscreen, provided they do not interfere with the driver’s vision. In addition, the ‘primary vision area’ (the area of the windscreen which is swept by the windscreen wipers) must not be cracked, scored, chipped, sandblasted or otherwise damaged to the extent that it impairs the driver’s vision or damages the wiper blades. It is recommended that all defects be repaired as soon
Repaired windscreens must comply with the following requirements:
- when inspected from the inside of the vehicle, the repair should not exhibit any significant optical defects which would distort or distract the vision of the driver and should restore clarity to the damaged area.
- any repair to the windscreen should not reduce the effectiveness of the windscreen wipers
- windscreen repair material must be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. If a repair has been unsuccessful or is unlikely to be effective, the vehicle owner is responsible for replacing the windscreen in order to meet the necessary safety requirements.
To ensure the safety of all motor vehicle occupants, replacement windscreens must be of an approved safety glass. The glass must always bear an identification mark indicating the standard to which the glass has been manufactured (e.g. AS 2080, BSAU178, JISR3211, UNECE R43, ANSI-Z26.1) and have a standards mark etched or indelibly printed on the glass. Windscreens which do not comply with these recognised standards may shatter easily and unexpectedly, creating areas of distorted vision. Windscreens that do not have a standards mark are illegal.

ADAS is an abbreviation for Advanced Driver Assistance System, a collective term for the new technology used to assist the driver in avoiding road collisions.
The ADAS technology uses cameras, radar and other systems to inform the vehicle of where it is on the road looking forward and sometimes to the side or backwards.
If your vehicle is fitted with Advanced Driver Assistance technology, recalibration might be required after a windscreen replacement.

Ask your auto glass technician for the direct glazing adhesive manufacturer’s recommended drive away time. It is usually one to two hours.
All glazing units fitted into your vehicle must meet the requirements of Australian Design Rule ADR 8/01 and comply with Australian Standard AS/NZS2080:2019 or equivalent International Standards. Look for a ‘compliance mark’, also known as a ‘bug’ as pictured here. Auto safety glass needs to have one to be legally compliant.
It will take a professional approximately 90 minutes to replace a windscreen. You then have to wait about another hour for the direct glazing adhesive to dry to a safe degree. In total you should allow at least two hours before driving again.
Repairing your existing windscreen or window instead of replacing it with a new one is usually cheaper and easier, but it always depends on the extent of the problem. Sometimes your auto glass technician will recommend the whole windscreen be replaced due to the type, size and position of the damage. It’s important to get the right advice from someone you trust.
Repairing a chip prevents further damage, improves safety, no tampering with the original seal, reduces the chance of failing a rego check, cheaper and easier than glass replacement.
