Glazing Applications

Frames, trims and screws are all things of the past when it comes to marine windows. We’re seeing modern day ship design feature increasingly larger surface areas of glass which seamlessly blend into elegantly designed super yachts. Today’s direct glazing technology not only improves aesthetic styling, it also helps achieve greater fuel efficiency by reducing both wind and vibration noise through better aerodynamics. With good design it can also contribute significantly to a vessel’s structural integrity, as well as providing better protection from natural elements such as moisture, temperature fluctuations and intense UV light than a traditional framed window.

With the latest glass manufacturing processes windows of almost any shape, size and curvature are available in a wide variety of formulations ranging from laminated mineral glass (with or without a ceramic edge) to organic variants manufactured from plastics, acrylics or polycarbonates. All with their own unique chemical and physical properties.

Innovative research and development ensures that all Kömmerling Marine chemical systems have been developed to be compatible with today’s modern production processes and consistently provide the capability to significantly optimise the direct glazing process - saving costs and reducing assembly times.
