A new National Windscreens fitting and calibration centre is being opened in York as part of the continued investment into its UK national network.
The new centre is due to open on September 1 and is located at Victor Court on the Airfield Business Park at Elvington, York. It forms part of National Windscreens UK network of 108 fitting and calibration centres.
Pete Marsden, managing director at National Windscreens, said: “We have invested in a state of the art fitting and calibration centre to allow us to continue providing motorists in this area with the highest possible level of service.
“The new centre is completely bespoke, providing the space to service several vehicles at one time and features the latest fitting, repair and calibration technology.”
He continued: “The new centre is staffed by a team of experienced technicians who are qualified in glass repair, replacement and calibration of ADAS cameras.
“With an ever-growing number of vehicles using ADAS cameras, should a windscreen replacement be needed we can undertake the calibration of the windscreen mounted camera during the same visit to the centre,” added Mr Marsden.
“As a critical component in ADAS features, it is imperative that the camera is calibrated accurately to ensure the vehicle safety systems work as intended.”
National Windscreens has already invested more than £2 million in ADAS calibration equipment and training to provide a national calibration service.
It is predicted that by 2020, 40% of all vehicles will have at least two ADAS features fitted as standard.
