Porsche Securiflex Windscreen #930 #964

Found on some Porsche 930 and 964 models as standard, is what was offered as a ‘safer’ windscreen.
The Securiflex Windscreen was presented as an improved windscreen with a thin, plastic inner laminate attached to the inside surface of a laminated glass. Its purpose was to minimise the risk of lacerations caused in a impact scenario (to a passenger) during a collision. The plastic provides an additional protective coating to the inside of the sandwich construction and thus covers the sharp edges of the broken glass,  reducing the chances of cut and splinter injuries. Its effectiveness was evaluated by comparing its performance with that of a standard windscreen in simulated barrier crashes at speeds of up to 40mph (approx 65 km/h).
