Default 91 to 93 windshield brand?

im trying to have a windshield installed in my 1978 242 and the windshield they brought out looked like the rubber trim was to small we test fitted it and the rubber was so close to the edge i did not let them install it it was a pilkington
has anyone had one installed lately and do you know the brand
i want a 91 up windshield

Pilkington is the desired brand. Volvo does sell three different seals for the glass to account for the difference in spacing on the various cars.

Never heard of the that brand until recently. My friend just had one installed on his 89 240GL, looks much better than the chrome trim one. No issues with the rubber trim.
