From AcryliCo’s many years’ experience, and through our focused programme of research and development, technical innovation and stringent production methods, we are able to produce the most advanced and complex windshield designs within the nautical industry
AN EVOLVING INDUSTRY
Currently an exploding area of the market are new designs which depart from traditional windshields, such as those found in center console designs, incorporating fully contoured aerodynamically designed windshields to keep the wind off the operator while keeping clear of the angler.
Center console windshields have become an AcryliCo specialty we have perfected through time-proven experience. Essential is a design which organically follows the contour of the console in such a manner they will integrate precisely into the console.
AcryliCo’s Quality Assurance Program is the key reason why our rate of returns has been consistently held below the 0.5%. Discrepancies are an extremely rare occurrence. This is because once a windshield is tooled up and the ‘First Article Fit’ has been approved, the subsequent production will remain remarkably identical from the first to the last delivered lots.
Any discrepancy will be investigated thoroughly, and corrective action promptly implemented and applied to all future productions and will be factored into future R&D.
As boats get larger, so do their windshields. Therefore due to the increased surface area, the stresses and load factors the transparency will be subjected to throughout its lifetime will increase exponentially.
With these elements borne in mind, state-of-the-art tooling becomes fundamental to create these complex designs. Acrylico uses the latest equipment and software technology to design and product its transparencies.
Our production facilities feature CNC’d master tooling. This technology not only offers the opportunity for perfect symmetry, but also allows subtle curvature adjustments to dramatically enhance the strength and durability of the product notwithstanding improving wind-flow efficiency as well.
Due to our comprehensive experience within the aeronautical industry ― an area of manufacture calling for the very highest quality controls ― we are able to apply this same level of standard in the design and manufacture of all marine windshields and windows.
AcryliCo’s advanced knowledge and our ability to produce windshields capable of withstanding extreme external forces is the benchmark of our success. As such, we can create windshields for all types of vessels; from the most humble leisure fishing boat, all the way up to professional and performance racing boats, and everything in between.
MAXIMISING THE CAPABILITIES OF ACRYLIC
We take pride in developing close relationships with our valued patrons and encourage boat engineers and designers to maximize the superior capabilities of acrylics, as opposed to the limitations and considerably greater costs of a similar product fashioned out of glass.
In truth, due to their molecular properties, polymers can achieve far more radical shapes and compound curves ― simply beyond the limited malleability of glass ― and with less aberrations and superior light transmission.
ENHANCING THE BEAUTY OF YOUR VESSEL
In doing so, we offer our valued patrons ample opportunity to bring into play the gloss, colors and beauty of acrylic, creating pieces which not only exemplify the diversity of what we are able to produce, but ultimately enhancing the beauty and style of these exceptional and magnificent boat designs.
LIMITLESS OPPORTUNITIES TO USE ACRYLIC
Of course, since AcryliCo caters to all types of boats it follows our expertise is not solely focused on the production of windshields and windows, but other marine equipment, accessories and trimmings as well.
EXPLORE THE WORLD OF ACRYLICO
There are indeed limitless opportunities for you to to use acrylic to beautify your boat. Aside of windshields, hullside and flybridge windows, we also manufacture custom-made center console panels, hatches, doors, on-board storage units in many formats, and, live bait wells and tackle centers for the keen angling aficionado.
