HIGHEST QUALITY, MINIMUM ABERRATION
With superior optical qualities, acrylic has 15% better light transmission than glass
ORGANIC COMPLEX CURVATURES
The challenge remains to create ever larger windows which simultaneously accentuate the beauty and style of yacht lines, yet afford a more natural ambiance. Hullside windows are highly complex since they must follow the shape of the hull and need be formed in such a manner they can be securely bonded to the landing on the hull. Bonding agents require minimum UV penetration, so usually a painted outer layer is also required, known as a frit.
99% UV BLOCK AND UP TO 45% IR REDUCTION
Highly energy efficient, acrylic will improve living space ambience and save fuel running costs
HIGHLY EFFICIENT PROPERTIES OF ACRYLIC
COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS TO ACHIEVE OPTIMAL DESIGN
State of the art design and production facilities to achieve top quality products
SUPERIOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Another positive attribute of this acrylic is its ability to block up to 45% of IR, (infrared heat waves), with a two-fold advantage. Primarily this drastic reduction in IR penetration will assist yacht air conditioning systems by reducing overall usage. Ultimately this not only means extending the service life-cycle of the air-conditioning units, but also long term fuel savings. Since the units will no longer be subjected to long hours of usage, this will directly result in reduced service and maintenance.
