Windows Laminated?

I'm getting new windows from this shop and the guy needs to know if the front windows are laminated. He said if the window looks like 2 panes of glass it is but if it looks like 1 it's not. I have no idea how to tell so i figured i'd ask the experts

? a glass shop does not know whether a vehicle manufactured for USA sale has laminated windshield? And they are not aware that the windshield must be marked with its DOT identity and a safety number that tells whether it is laminated?

If this is the original windshield, look for a small marker on it, and if you see AS1, I don't believe anything but laminated can meet that standard. I don't recall that anything other than laminated can be used as the ORIGINAL windshield in the US...
The mounting of the replacement, particularly the type of glue and the removal prep of the vehicle are important as well, and I'd worry about a shop not familiar enough with US windshield safety standards as to ask you about it being laminated or not.

If you plan to keep the vehicle, only use an original windshield... and only use a shop that is aware of the required DOT markings on it and the replacement plus the requirements for mounting prep and glue if the vehicle has air bags...

Re: Windows Laminated?

It's not the the windshield, it was the front 2 windows. I went to the shop and he told me they were un-laminated, so i'm good now. Thank you for the info tho, much appreciated.
