DuraShield Marine® - Marine Grade Glass Applications
Standard and oversize capabilities allow naval architects to custom design vast windows delivering space and light into a vessel with floor to ceiling windows, both curved and flat. Compatibility with Glasshape’s thermal, and printing offers – all in one window unit – make DuraShield Marine a versatile glass solution for pilothouse, hull, deck and cabin windows.
Customized shapes and specifications to meet the rigorous demands of these most vulnerable glass elements of a vessel – normally the thickest due to Blue Wave exposure.
Port-Lights & Dead-Lights
By definition these small windows between the waterline and first deck are normally oval or circular in shape, and less than 0.16m² (larger than this being Hull Windows). DuraShield Marine dead-light glass is a glass and polycomposite composition laminated together, creating a panel strong enough, that when broken, will remain watertight up to four times the design pressure. This product eliminates the requirements to carry traditional aluminium dead-light plates.
Railings, balustrading and doors that can be found around open flybridges, forward or aft facing. They are generally accepted as an exterior application to reduce wind exposure. Available as custom curves or flat.
