All construction machinery doors and windows take a beating, and Caterpillar doors are no exception. If you are experiencing issues with broken glass in your Caterpillar doors or windows, skidsteercabs.com is here to help. We offer replacement options in both glass and polycarbonate, each with unique benefits to consider.
Glass is the more economical option, but it still provides good visibility. Glass is scratch-resistant, and with proper maintenance, it can last for many years. However, glass is not the best choice for extreme environments or heavy use, as it can shatter upon impact. In addition, it can be challenging to remove broken glass shards from the cab, creating a potential safety hazard.
On the other hand, polycarbonate is virtually indestructible and ideal for extreme environments and heavy use. Polycarbonate is fade-resistant, scratch-resistant, and significantly more durable than glass. However, it comes with a higher price tag. The cost of polycarbonate is higher, but the long-term benefits of durability may outweigh the initial cost.
Here's a summary of the pros and cons of glass versus polycarbonate replacement options:
|Glass Replacement||Polycarbonate Replacement|
|Good visibility||Exceptional durability|
|Can shatter upon impact||Significantly more durable|
|Potential safety hazard from broken shards||No safety hazards from breakage|
