Our reliable service, that delivers the right glass to the right place in the shortest possible time, builds policyholder trust and competitive advantage for insurers who also benefit from our low prices.
The increasing number of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that use windscreen mounted cameras means that camera calibration, following glass replacement or accident damage, is absolutely necessary to ensure these safety features continue to work as intended. ADAS camera calibration is best carried out in workshop conditions, a requirement specified by over 75% of car manufacturers. National Windscreens UK-wide network of ADAS calibration centres means we lead the market in this service provision, ensuring policyholders can drive away safely after just one visit.
Insurance Post in collaboration with National Windscreens recently conducted a survey of the insurance market’s views on ADAS, its influence in setting premiums and approaches to repair issues. This report sheds light on the research findings and how the results compare with our previous study.
With more Advanced Driver Assistance Systems being installed on cars, Alistair Carlton, technical manager at National Windscreens, says insurers shouldn’t underestimate the demand for ADAS calibration. Download this article to find out more.
As assistance systems are making cars safer, but also more costly to repair, insurers would love a database listing which features are fitted on which vehicles – but motor manufacturers aren’t sharing that information yet. Download David Worsfold’s article to find out more.
