Did you know the wiper arm tension is the most important feature when evaluating new blades? This is what actually provides the spring tension that forces the wiper blade against the windshield. Without this tension the blade will not be effective in removing moisture from the windshield.</p> <p>Frank's Glass carries a high end flexible wiper arm/blade combination that will provide you with a clear driving experience. Give us a call at 513.829.8284 to schedule an appointment to have your wiper blades replaced so next time you are stuck in a rainstorm you will not have to worry about your wiper performance. Our Aquapel windshield treatment also offers an additional layer of protection by wicking the water away from the windshield, allowing for better visibility.

https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/entry/187 Wed, 11 Apr 2018 11:01:17 EST https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/entry/187 <p>Have you ever wondered how glass can be &ldquo;bulletproof&rdquo;?&nbsp; You generally hear about this glass in incidents where the President or some other high official is involved&hellip;in their limousines, aircrafts, military vehicles, etc.&nbsp; Although bullet-resistant glass looks like regular glass, it is constructed to withstand the impact of bullets.&nbsp; How is this done?&nbsp; Through a process called lamination.&nbsp; Bullet-resistant glass is constructed layering a piece of polycarbonate between two pieces of regular glass.&nbsp; The polycarbonate absorbs the impact of the bullet, stopping it from entering into the inside piece of glass.&nbsp; The ability of the glass to &ldquo;resist&rdquo; the bullet is based on the thickness of the glass.&nbsp;</p> <p>There is also a one-way bullet-resistant glass available.&nbsp; This makes it possible to be protected from a bullet penetrating the glass from the outside, while still giving the individual on the inside the ability to shoot back.&nbsp; This is made possible by laminating a brittle sheet of material with a flexible material.&nbsp; The brittle piece would be constructed on the outside of the &ldquo;unit&rdquo;, so upon impact it would shatter around the point of impact and absorb some of the energy from the bullet.&nbsp;&nbsp; The flexible material on the inside would absorb the remaining energy of the bullet, stopping the bullet from penetrating the interior glass.&nbsp; In reverse, the flexible interior material would pass through the glass because the bullet&rsquo;s force is concentrated in a small area, which causes the material to flex.&nbsp; This then causes the outside brittle material to break outwards, allowing the bullet to pierce the flexible material and strike its target.</p> <p>Now you know.&nbsp; Call Frank&rsquo;s Glass for all your glass needs!</p>tags: <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/bulletproof glass/">bulletproof glass</a>, <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/glass/">glass</a>, <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/safety glass/">safety glass</a>, <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/franks glass/">franks glass</a>, <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/auto glass/">auto glass</a>, <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/commercial glass/">commercial glass</a>, <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/bulletproof windows/">bulletproof windows</a>, <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/bullet-resistant glass/">bullet-resistant glass</a>, <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/fairfield/">fairfield</a>, <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/mason/">mason</a>, <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/indian hill/">indian hill</a>, <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/blue ash/">blue ash</a>, <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/glendale/">glendale</a>, <a href="https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/tag/west chester/">west chester</a> Custom Glass Counter Tops Create Dramatic Kitchen Design https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/entry/186 Tue, 10 Apr 2018 13:31:39 EST https://franksglass.com/pages/Blog/entry/186 <p>Want to add a touch of pizzazz to your kitchen or bath?
