Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is essential for car glass repair or replacement to ensure the safety of the technician. Gloves, safety goggles, and a first aid kit are the most common pieces of protective equipment used by automotive glass technicians. This equipment helps protect the technician from flying glass particles and harmful glare. At Magic Glass Repair, we prioritize safety above all else. That's why our technicians always put on the appropriate protective equipment before starting any repair job.
Automotive glass technicians also have specialized tools for cleaning and restoring clear visibility. High-strength glass cleaning tools are designed to lift a considerable amount of weight. These tools come in various sizes to accommodate car windows of different sizes. A 6.3-inch glass lifter is ideal for removal and installation. Automotive glass tools can be divided into two categories: hand tools and power tools.
Hand tools are more affordable, but power tools can make the job easier and faster. However, it is important to use power tools with caution as improper use can cause damage to the vehicle or the surrounding area. Adhesives used in automotive glass installation require more force than regular adhesives, so special guns must be used to apply them. Some technicians prefer to lift the entire weight of the glass and place the hardware at the pivot point of the door glass arm. Aegis Tools is a leading manufacturer of automotive glass tools, including windshield repair kits, electric cutting tools, and other glass-related tools for cars. Investing in quality automotive glass tools is essential for launching and managing a successful business.
