Volvo Wheel Loader Replacement Windshield

SHIELDS People,

I want to tell you about this 1 piece Volvo wheel loader windshield but I also want to praise our team here at SHIELDS! This team pulled off an amazing feat with this Volvo Wheel Loader and I could not let this go untold. If you are reading this then you know we now have the Volvo F, G, and H wheel loader series windshield and windows. Replacing glass is what we do here day and in and out; however, this task was a little unique. Normally we bring in the glass and replicate it but this time we got the WHEEL LOADER itself, not just the glass.

The Quick Version

Volvo Large Wheel loader

It was an adventure from the beginning. The driver who hauled this HUGE piece of equipment didn’t have the keys to drive it off his truck! That was the first speedbump. However, we showed back up the next day and it was in our parking lot. Now we are not suited to have giant machines in our buildings so this monster piece of equipment squeezed in our largest door with inches to spare. Once we got it in the building the challenge started. We had to remove ALL the windows and all 3 pieces of the front windshield, keeping them intact so we can replicate them in polycarbonate.

We began removing them and the first thought was how awful it must be to remove these on a work site if they break – just awful. This was even more motivating for us to make an amazing replacement for our customer. In only 3 weeks, we took those 3 pieces of 1/4″ glass and created a 1 piece polycarbonate replacement windshield in 1/2″ polycarbonate! The engineering and work that went into this project are incredible. Not to mention, at the same time as this our team was replicating all 7 other windows on this machine. That alongside multiple other projects at the same time. Not only did we make all 8 pieces in 3 weeks, but we also installed them. Now, that is not normal for us and was a part of this special project. Our typical lead time on projects like this is the standard 8 weeks, but this team went above and beyond.

Why Polycarbonate?

Polycarbonate windshields

Why did our customer want a polycarbonate windshield for his Volvo Wheel Loader? A few reasons. First, when they are on a worksite and this glass breaks, which happens often, they have to stop working and get it replaced. That is expensive in time and resources. Our windshield is our thickest and safest option, 1/2″ not only will this not break on them, but it is also lighter and easier to install than glass. Our windshield also keeps operators safer and more comfortable in extreme climates. Not to mention it is a beautiful, large windshield that no longer has a broken view because it is all 1 now! See the details below on all of the windows!

  • Front windshield: 3/8″ and 1/2″ available 
  • Rear windshield: 1/4″
  • All left-hand doors and windows: 1/4″
  • All right-hand doors and windows: 1/4″

Your Logo on your SHIELDS Product

Hi SHIELDS People!your logo

Ever want your logo on all of your stuff? That branding is important so let’s talk about that a little! Branding is an important part of a business. It is how you can get referrals, customer retention, and it is how you are recognized in your industry. We understand that this is important to you and we want to help you keep your branding on your equipment. We can help with our part marker lasers. We have part makers that can be customized to your branding by adding your LOGO. Let’s dive into this.

Whether you have a logo or verbiage that you want on your windshield/door, you can have your branding on your SHIELDS windshield! We have a $35 setup fee for the first one. After that, it is included in all of your parts. At the end of this article are the details that we need from you to use your logo. The logo is a standard 3.75″ X 3.75″ located at the bottom or appropriate location on the polycarbonate. Along with your logo, we can add your website, phone number, whatever you want. The only thing that cannot change is we will add our DOT number and warranty tracking number. This gives us the time and date that it was made but is only traceable for us internally, your customers won’t trace that back to us. This gives you the advantage of selling SHIELDS and retaining your customers with you. On top of that, we care about our dealers and if someone calls and tells us they are with you we will do our best to send them back to you. There is only one way to ensure that only YOU can sell a SHIELDS product and that is to pay for the tooling of a product, but that is for another article.

Another fun feature we offer is to those who do not have a logo. If you are not a dealer and you still want your windshield to say something cool, we’ve got you covered! We have an in-house designer who can create a logo for you. Once it is created we will send it out for your approval and if you like it you now have a custom logo! But there is more, if you have a flat windshield or door and you want something larger lasered, we can do that too. We have a table laser that is 5’X10′ long and can laser larger logos. This is a custom cost depending on what size you want. We only have restrictions when it comes to the viewing area of your windshield. This area cannot be lasered due to liability reasons. However, say you have a racing name that you want to be lasered on your windshield all along the top line, you got it!

Whether you are a heavy equipment dealer, a racing team, or a farmer who just wants his name on his tractor, we want to help customize your SHIELDS polycarbonate product! See details below for image types and details.

  • Image types: .jpg, .pdf, .tif, .dxf, .eps or some other kind of vector file.
  • Max finished laser size is 3.75″ x 3.75″ for general logos
  • Custom Designs available if requested.
  • $35 one time fee for regular logos (3.75″ X3.75″)
  • HIGH-Quality images are very important to get a quality lasered logo

When To Order a Custom Windshield

Ordering a Windshield

Ordering a SHIELDS® Windshield in your car?

There are some things we want to share with you about ordering a SHIELDS® Windshield. First and foremost we want to share that due to material costs going up over the past couple of years, we are having to increase our prices. These prices will be effective as of April 1, 2021. Here is a link to our catalog that you can see the new prices. We don’t like having to increase our price but we hope you understand why we had to. If you have questions please use the email at the bottom of this article and we will be glad to help!

Now, let’s talk about ordering your custom windshield. When you order your windshield you are going to be given many different options. We know this can be overwhelming and create more questions, so let’s break it down.

Size Options

  • Stock Trim – this is where we trim the windshield down to the OEM size all the way around for a drop fit.
  • Oversized – this is where we top line the windshield at the OEM line, then the rest of the windshield is 1.5″ large around the rest of the windshield
  • Custom – our custom trim is…everything else! If you want 3″ large around the whole thing or if you have a custom-built with special dimensions. Now with our custom trim, some windshields work better than others for custom trim. Our team has years of experience with this and will be able to guide you so you get the perfect windshield!

Thickness Options

For thicknesses AKA gauges we offer a few for motorsports. The front windshield and rear windshield do not have the exact same gauge options.

Front Windshield –

  • 1/4″ Clear
  • 3/16″ Clear or Tint
  • 1/8″ Clear or Tint

Rear Windshield –

  • 3/16″ Clear or Tint
  • 1/8″ Clear or Tint

Coating Options

The last thing will ask you is what you want on your windshield. Starting to sound like a cake order, right? Well the coating is important. Our SUPERCOAT™ is a proprietary process, you can learn more about it here.   We offer 2 variations for our front windshields. You can get your windshield with SUPERCOAT™ on both sides, or you can get one side with SUPERCOAT™ and the other with our Anti-Fog. We recommended that you contact us and let us explain how to handle the anti-fog. For our rear windshield we offer the same as the front but we also offer uncoated versions of this. Now know that these will scratch up, but can save you weight and money. 

We are always adding new products to our line so be sure to ask us if we have your cars make and model! Another thing to consider when ordering with us, 90% of our windshields are made by hand to perfection. With that we have longer lead times and due to demand we recommended if you are working on a project be sure to order your window earlier than you think you need to. Our windshield makers are in high demand and are currently booked out for the next three months! We love it, but we want to be forward with all of you when ordering you windshield!

If you have questions about anything above please give us a call! 1-800-554-7527

Safety withouth Sacrificing Quality.

Safety without Sacrificing Quality

The longer we are in the business of operator safety the more ways we see people coming up with ways to stay safe. This is great, people are focusing on safety more and more. However, when we see how people are doing this we just shake our head a little. We believe that you don’t have to sacrifice quality to focus on safety.

By quality, we mean a few things. When you add a cage to the outside of your glass window you are sacrificing the quality of your view. When you buy uncoated polycarbonate, cut it up and put it in your cab. Again, the quality of your view goes down as the uncoated polycarbonate scratches. You have also lost some quality in your machine because we both know that door you made does not fit perfectly. We believe that your safety

is the most important factor; however, we don’t think you need to sacrifice the quality of your door, cab, or your view…heck, let’s not forget about your precious time!

Polycarbonate is the #1 choice on a windshield or door to keep you safe. Poly is 260X stronger than glass and if you go with 1/2″ that amount even increases! But you can’t stop there. Your poly door needs to fit right. There are so many factors to consider with this. Does your door have a shape? Do you want to use your original hardware? Do you want a  simple installation? These are all factors that we realized you have to consider; so when developing the SHIELDS Advantage we thought through all of this. We ensure your polycarbonate replacement door fits the same as your glass using original hardware. If you can install glass in your machine you will be able to install ours no problem! If you find you are having some trouble check out our YouTube page and follow one of our installation videos. 

We have checked off the quality of your time and of your door! Now let’s look at the quality of your view. We have worked with polycarbonate for over 45 years and we know how frustrating it is when your poly scratches and hazes the same day you install it. This was one of the first concerns that we tackled years ago. All of our doors and products get post -coated with our proprietary SUPERCOAT hardcoat. This is the toughest coating in the business. Our coating is scratch resistant to steel wool and allows your windshield wipers to work as much as needed! You can learn more about our coating in this article. 

Time, machine, and view – we have checked those off. However, there is one more extremely important factor we have considered when it comes to the quality of your machine, your wallet. We are believers that quality comes at a price; however, that price does not need to break the bank. We are not the cheapest windshield and door out there we know. We pay top dollar for the best optical polycarbonate we can buy but we know that even the highest quality stuff has to be affordable and when comparing we fall in the middle in price. We can’t have the quality and be the cheapest but we will never price gouge our customers. We care about the affordability of our product for the average person.

You don’t have to sacrifice quality to ensure you are safe while working. We work to give you the best safe door and quality door to enhance your machine and your work!

Stay safe,

Your SHIELDS team.

This may be the most useful blog post yet. I am sharing with you our most frequent questions and answers about our products. We get phone calls every day asking these exact questions. I hope they are useful for you and if your question is not on this list you can ask it in the comments!

 

1. Going from the original glass size to a thicker option will I have to do any adjusting to make yours fit properly?

  • No, with the SHIELDS® Advantage you get the form fit and function of OEM glass at every thickness. We take the extra step so your window fits without any special additions on your end. Just fit any of our windows the same way you would fit your glass!

2. What do I clean it with?

  • When you receive your windshield there will be a care sheet will all of our instructions. In house, we like to use water, isopropyl alcohol, and your generic brand window cleaner. Keep in mind some window cleaners work better than others. Check out our YouTube for our cleaning and care video.
  • SHIELDS YouTube

3. Will the wipers scratch the product?

  • No, your wipers are safe to use. We post-coat all of our products with our proprietary SUPERCOAT™. This coating is a silicone hard coating scratch resistant to steel wool. We recommend that you check your wipers and make sure they are clean before using them; remove all rocks or sticks.

4. What kind of warranty do you offer?

  • Yes, SHIELDS has a limited warranty covering our SUPERCOAT™ coating. Please contact us for more information

5. How long before it will scratch or haze?

  • This answer varies and is dependent upon the use of products. Please refer to our limited warranty for more information. We are proud of our SUPERCOAT™ and if you take care of it, it will perform for you.

6. Is this bulletproof? 

  • No. Bulletproof products have polycarbonate within their lamination. However, our retail products are not laminate; therefore, not bulletproof. Our windshield and windows are Effectively Unbreakable – 260X stronger than glass thickness to thickness. We are here to provide true information to educate you and keep you safe on the job. Our ½” thick windows are the safest option and if you have questions about thicknesses please give us a call.
  • To learn about thicknesses check out our post on them.

7. Will it break or shatter?

Other products range, if your item is not listed on our website be sure to call and check lead times. 1-800-554-7527

9. Once there is a scratch, is there anything they can apply to get it buffed out?

  • Very light scratches can be filled with Novus wax, but due to the nature of silicone and polycarbonate, the coating cannot be re-worked.

10. What adhesive do I use?

  • To apply a window that glues in, we recommend Urethane– you can watch our installation video where we use Urethane to apply a Kubota Windshield. RTV Silicone is not an adhesive, only used for water barrier if needed.
    • Here is a video of an installation using an adhesive

11. How is visibility/distortion?

  • We only use the highest quality optical-grade polycarbonate along with our proprietary forming capabilities result in low/no operator distortion on our windows. Our SUPERCOAT™ provides a long lifetime of clear visibility against yellowing and hazing.

12. Will the ½” window fit with existing hardware?

  • Yes, you do not need to have any extra hardware. You can use your existing hardware and gasket; we do not sell gaskets so please reach out to your dealer for a new one.

These are our top SHIELDS  FAQ’s that we get here. If you have any other questions, let us know!

Cleaning your Polycarbonate Windshield

Okay SHIELDS® people let’s chat about cleaning, cleaning, your polycarbonate windshield that is! Caring for your SHIELDS® replacement windshield is not complicated or hard, but we want to make sure you know just how to do it. Along with this post, we have a video that we put together to show you just what we are talking about.

When you get your windshield you will get a care and installation paper from us. This paper has links to our YouTube installation videos as well. If you threw it away no worries you can print another one here! This sheet is important as it explains what cleaners have been proven safe in the laboratory setting and some tips for you to follow.

Before Cleaning

Before you begin cleaning your polycarbonate windshield be sure to check your wipers and the rest of the door; remove all big chunks of mud or debris that might be drug across the windshield when cleaning. We want to prevent dragging anything across the polycarbonate except the cleaner and rag. Get yourself a good clean rag, we recommend terrycloth. Make sure it has nothing in it before using it.

Basic Cleaning

Let’s get started with what cleaners are approved. If you downloaded the care sheet you’ll notice there are a lot of different cleaners you can use. A tip from the pros, we use just a couple of these because we think they are the best. The first one is Isopropyl Alcohol. This is what we recommend as we use this one in house. Another one is your basic brand foam glass cleaner. We have found this cleaner to work well also and does not leave the residue that other glass cleaners can leave. Steps to follow:

  1. Wash with a mild solution of soap or detergent and lukewarm water.
  2.  Using a soft cloth or sponge, gently wash the sheet to loosen dirt and grime and rinse well with clean water.
  3.  To prevent water spots, thoroughly dry with chamois or cellulose sponge.
  4.  Avoid the use of abrasive cleaners, squeegee, and/or other cleaning implements that may mar or gouge the coating.

Graffiti and Paint Removal

If you struggle with your equipment getting graffiti we have some recommendations for removing it from your polycarbonate replacement door. We suggest that you use the approved organic solvent, Butyl Cellosolve. Be sure to rinse really well after using this solvent. Some other tricks you can try are to use a lint roller or tape to remove old paint. Just lay the sticky side on the paint and pull off like a slow bandaid. One of the great things about our SUPERCOAT™ coating we apply to all of our products is that no glues or paints will permanently stick to the surface.

General Tips

To protect your windshield at all times we recommend having a copy of the care sheet with you in your cab or car. If you are really driven you can keep a bottle of your choice of cleaner and a clean rag in your cab or car somewhere. We recommend this because when your cab gets worked on or you lend it out to someone else who does not know what to do you cannot expect them to know what to do. All it takes is a little extra thought and preparation to keep your SHIELDS® windshield in pristine condition so it lasts you years of hard work!

Until next time,

Your SHIELDS® team.

Polycarbonate: Strength through Flex

PolycarbonatePolycarbonate is a unique material that is 260X stronger than glass, but yet can looks so much like glass people get them confused! Being strong is awesome, but what makes it so strong? I want to quickly explain what gives polycarbonate (Lexan®) its’ strength. It’s all about being flexible!

That’s right, polycarbonate has a flex to it so it is not rigid and stiff like glass. This flex gives polycarbonate its phenomenal strength and protective properties. We actually see this in other aspects of building materials. It might seem strange but a similar idea is used when building skyscrapers and bridges. When a skyscraper is built the building has to be “flexible” at the top. These buildings technically sway a little so they can withstand the weather they face 24/7. Some large bridges have a similar approach to facing the weather. So we look at that flex as an incredibly good thing!

When you hit a glass window with a rock you see that the glass cannot do anything with the force coming at it so it shatters and the rock goes right through. However, you threw a rock at our polycarbonate windows and you can see the polycarbonate flex and move to keep the rock from penetrating the window. We have a great demonstration video of this on our YouTube page. The flex is important for your safety as a drive or operator!

A customer reached out to use and shared a story with us that shows this first hand.

“Anyways I am very glad I bought it in the end. I had been debating it as I was only going to do 7 days mulching on my property and then probably never again. Wasn’t sure about the expense as I thought I could maybe just be careful, and use the glass one. However, on day one I was mulching away and a 3” rock somehow flew out the back and hit so hard I think the windshield actually bowed into the cab. I am positive it would have shattered the glass one and come into the cab. Who knows how much damage that could have done to me. Glad I don’t know.”⁠

glass

That is what we call a strong windshield! We are glad our customer was safe and did not just try and “be safe” with his glass windshield. Now flexibility allowing for superior strength will not work if you are talking to your personal trainer, but it will keep you safer on the racetrack and on a job site! One note that we want everyone to learn. Different gauges of polycarbonate are going to show this flex more than others. Our 1/4″ for example will have more natural movement due to its thinner nature. However, our 3/8″ is going to be more rigid and our 1/2″ is going to be solid while operating your machine. When using 1/4′ due to its strength and movement some skid steer cabs have some tricks to work with movement. Be sure to give us a call and we can help you with that.

 

Until next time,

Your SHIELDS® Team

SUPERCOAT™ What Makes Us Different

SHIELDS® people, today we are going to dig into a part of our business that sets us apart from our competition. Our proprietary SUPERCOAT™ is the hard coating that we add to our polycarbonate products. This coating gives you a windshield with a scratch-resistant surface that is abrasion resistant to steel wool! So, you get the perfect OEM fit and function with the best scratch resistance, but how? Let’s dig into our SHIELDS® SUPERCOAT™ and talk in terms of candy!

Yes, candy! To explain how we have a hard coating on our products with the perfect form we like to use a 3 Musketeers candy bar as an example. When you buy a new 3 Musketeers candy bar you have a flat bar with hard chocolate all over it. What happens to the chocolate when you bend the candy bar, it cracks and breaks, right? That is what happens when you try to form and bend polycarbonate with the coating on it. Many of our competitors know this so they use a coating that is softer, not hard chocolate. They can then bend the candy bar without the coating cracking. That is okay, but the scratch resistance is not nearly as good.

 

That is when we realized there is a better way to handle a candy bar. We don’t accept not having both the best coating and the perfect form, so we do not compromise. To get this we take our candy bar and shape the nougat into the perfect form first! Then we bring in the chocolate and add it to the nougat. You end up with the best of both, our SUPERCOAT™ and the advantage of SHIELDS® form, fit, and function! If our windshields were a candy bar, they would be the tastiest and the coolest looking in our opinion.

That is a quick take on our hard coating we have a video demonstration of this on our Instagram page. You can also learn more about what we do on our other posts like, how polycarbonate is better than glass. But, don’t just take our word for it, check it out for yourself, and try a SHIELDS® replacement windshield! You can find our entire retail line here and order quickly and easily online. 

Until next time,

SHIELDS® Team.

Polycarbonate Guages & Why They Are Important

SHIELDS® people, I want to break down polycarbonate gauges and explain why it is important to know what thickness you are ordering your SHIELDS® replacement window and why!

One of the main reasons to go from glass to polycarbonate (AKA Lexan, Safety glass, etc – if the names are confusing read this post) is because polycarbonate is 260X stronger than glass! Glass is just going to break, it is not “if” but “when”. Maybe a bias statement, but we have not been proven wrong yet. If you are new to SHIELDS® it is fair to warn you, we are confident in what we do here, it is our passion!

Now that you are aware of our confidence let’s dive into today’s topic. We offer three gauges for each of our products, 1/4″, 3/8″, and 1/2″. When replacing glass this is a serious choice. Talking to our customers, we let you order whichever gauge you desire; however, we strive to ask as questions that can help lead you to the safest decision. Over the phone, it might come across as an “upsell”. That is not the goal, I assure you. We want YOU to be the safe and sometimes that means suggesting that you need the 1/2″ gauge. I may be jumping ahead, let’s go through each gauge of polycarbonate and what its’ suggested use may be.

1/4″ Replacement Windows

Let’s begin with 1/4″. Quater inch polycarbonate is the simplest to understand. The general explanation we use is this: If you are using 1/4″ glass and are fine, then our 1/4″ poly will be perfect.  You will have use of the same hardware, and your wipers will work great. Our 1/4″ gauge windows and doors replace glass great for most applications BUT there are circumstances where you might want a heavier gauge. A note for anyone dealing with cars or racing, this does not necessarily pertain to your applications. For questions about racing and cars, give us a call!

3/8″ Replacement Windows

Okay, onto our middle thickness, 3/8″. This gauge is one we suggest when your application involves any of the following but not limited to: GRASS MOWING, GENERAL CONTRACTING, AND MATERIAL HANDLING. To be as clear as we can be 3/8″ is NOT suggested for demolition, skid steer loader brush clearing, or wood processors. If you think you might someday do any of these you will want to get a heavier gauge. We have come across people getting a 3/8″ door or window and a year later decide to do some brush clearing. If this is you, you will want to upgrade thicknesses purely for safety reasons. We might sound like the cup is half full; however, you never know what is hiding in that brush! We are the plastic people, have a little faith in us, we promise your safety is at the top of our list.

1/2″ Replacement Windows

That leads us to our final gauge, our 1/2″ thick polycarbonate. This is the gauge when someone is uncertain or your work includes, but not limited to the following: DEMOLITION, SKID-STEER FORESTRY APPLICATION, GROUND CLEARING, BRUSH CUTTING, WOOD PROCESSORS, OR TREE SHEARS. This is a short list to help you understand that our 1/2″ polycarbonate is the safest choice. There are more applications that would apply. When ordering over the phone we ask that you share your application with us as we want to ensure you are ordering the appropriate polycarbonate replacement window.

We love it when customer call; however, we do have an online store. This is hands-off for you. Like other online stores, you can select what you want, put your info in and presto, you ordered your SHIELDS® polycarbonate replacement window! (This is for heavy equipment only, sorry car people, be patient yours is coming!)We are proud of our store; however, this puts the responsibility in YOUR hands as the customer! It is your choice on what you order. Therefore, if you have questions about gauges, I hope I have answered them and we are always here to answer your questions.

Stay safe out there, SHIELDS® people!
