You can modify the filter by combining several criteria and you can remove an applied filter by clicking the cross next to it.

Furthermore, users are offered a more direct search tool. You can use the search box at the very top of the website to go straight to parts with a Eurocode, OE number, Glavista Number or description. Use the search bar by typing the product you would like to find. The search will look for results, if you enter at least 5 characters. Up to 6 results will be shown in a popup window, if multiple items match your search criteria. The link ‘show all search results’ will take you to a list with all results, allowing you to filter further if necessary.

Some Glavista windscreens require specific accessories. You are informed about their requirement in the product card. This icon e.g. indicates you need to order additional moulding:

To include it into your order, please select the icon on the right. The icon on the left always indicates the item is not included in the order, yet. In case a moulding for the lower part is required, it is also displayed. Required gel sensor pads and clips are indicated by icons, too. If a windscreen does not need any accessory, no icon is displayed.

Apart from the icons in the product card, you can find accessories either via the search bar or the product filter.

Glavista mainly produces glass for passenger cars, but we also serve other vehicles. Thus, glass for vans and trucks is directly in second place. Due to safety regulations of the European Union, these products are now almost as complex as for passenger cars. Thus, we have windscreens with sensors, camera brackets, defrosting capabilities etc. for these vehicles in our programme.
Furthermore, you can buy plates from Glavista for machines, tractors etc. that you can cut to the exact measurements for your requirements. These plates come with a certificate as well as a stamp from Glavista.

Did you know... ?

...what the codes on the manufacturer's stamp on a windscreen mean?

The upper dots (1 to 12) refer to the month of production of the windscreen: 1 point would mean December, 2 points November... and 12 points January. 
The lower dots (1 to 10) refer to the year of the production: 10 points in this case mean 2020. (1 point would mean 2011.)
In this case, each line shows the maximum number of points (12 and 10) - hence, the windscreen was produced in January 2020.

95% of the parts offered by Glavista are produced in Spain - at the company’s world-class production facilities in Llodio and Valencia with the same Quality System as those of OE producers to meet and/or even exceed customer expectations. These facilities manufacture premium quality windscreens that are recognised throughout Europe for their premium quality - and are all homologated for customers in Europe, the United States and other regions. In order to meet customer needs, the Glavista portfolio also includes a limited number of glass parts produced outside of Europe assuring equal quality levels as the windscreens produced in Glavista facilities.

Based on extensive research with industry partners, we have taken steps to improve our own production processes. After identifying all reasons that caused problems, we adapted our production facilities to eradicate the issues e.g. special templates to control the position of the camera bracket, quality control of the gap between the bracket and the glass etc. The main cause of an unsuccessful calibration we identified is the curvature of the windscreen in the camera area. So we have concentrated on this issue, invested in our calibration control and we have succeeded in correcting this problem for all of our references: a robot checks all of our models with camera during production, to ensure that we achieve the tolerances needed for a perfect calibration. If the windscreen shape / curvature is not correct, it is rejected and scrapped automatically. With these processes together with our continued efforts to improve our production and products, you can be sure that your windscreen is perfect.

Glavista recognized and embraced the benefits of the IATF 16949 standard, and certification for its production facility on Llodio, Spain, was granted in 2018 . This ensures that our manufacturing and support processes are certified in the same way as OE producers, leading to higher quality (compared to non-certified producers). Our certificate is issued by an independent certification body (BSI: British Standards Institution) and must be renewed every three years. Every year, there is a review during which BSI assesses whether the requirements of our quality management system are applied, and our performance is continuously improved - consistent with our own vision as a company. In practice, this means, 100 per cent of our windscreens undergoes cosmetic inspection processes. We also keep a close eye on raw material, as glass thickness and transmission, validation processes for every new bracket, pvb moisture control etc., as well as the correct calibration of all measuring equipment. We analyse all complaints relating to material, employ a special team to help customers solve quality problems and regularly invest in expanding our ultra-modern machinery.
