Setting the record straight between authentic and fake Aguila auto glass
The main function of glass is to provide protection from outside elements. This simple invention is often taken for granted but without this, what would our transport vehicle be like?
In the Philippines, Aguila Auto Glass is the enduring brand. Established by Atty. Lauro C. Aguila in 1952, the company has been providing motorists a wide range of automotive glass along with other related products.
Like any good commodity, there are bound to be knock-offs or fakes that make a familiar play on Aguila Auto Glass. These offenders may even sell a sub-standard product that are not up to safety standards and could do more damage than harm.
As a way to differentiate the original from the fakes, all certified Aguila Glass products now carry the Philippine Standard (PS) license and Import Commodity Clearance (ICC) marks. This assures consumers that all automotive glasses sold by the company are compliant to mandatory quality and safety standards.
Moreover, Aguila Auto Glass clarifies that, depending on the type of automotive glass, each kind of glass can only be installed on a specific area of the car where it is deemed safe.
1. Laminated Glass – can only be used as a front windshield and any other portion of the vehicle
2. Zone Tempered Glass – only good as a front windshield
3. Fully Tempered Glass – can be used as back window or side windows
Aguila Auto Glass reminds that fully tempered glass cannot be used for the front windshield, it is illegal and unsafe.
Besides selling new or replacement automotive glass for almost any kind of car, Aguila Auto Glass also has other products available. These include: heavy equipment windshields for buses, safety laminated glass and safety tempered glass, rubbers, molding weather strips, polyurethane sealants, acrylic sheets and even window tint and wipers.
Authentic Aguila Auto Glass always carries the 'Red Eagle Head' logo, along with the registered symbol that ultimately deems their products as the real McCoy.
As a way of giving back to the community, the company is actively involved in several corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities.
