Tilse launches compound glazing system at MYS
Tilse will be exhibiting their latest product, Formglas Spezial CS, a compound glazing system, at Monaco this year on stand QD 76.
"Superyacht owners and designers want to avoid unattractive and cumbersome fixed or portable deadlights on hull windows and portlights," explains Hans-Joachim Tilse, managing director of Tilse. "Using Formglas Spezial technology we have developed Formglas Spezial CS, a compound system safety glazing for hull windows and portlights which meets the requirements for Lloyds classed and Cayman Islands flagged superyachts under LY3. With Formglas Spezial CS both permanently fixed and locally stored deadlights are avoided altogether."
The Formglas Spezial CS system is one complete window which is bonded from outside into the hull. This consists of two independent safety glazing panes which are held together by a specially reinforced and shock resistant spacer. The compound system has been engineered and built to withstand extreme pressure and impact forces.
"Avoiding deadlights, Formglas Spezial CS is the optimum solution for both protection of life at sea, and meeting the critical aesthetic demands expected on a modern superyacht," concludes Tilse. "We offer various glass combinations from 5-5-5 to 8-5-5 mm, depending on the size of the window. In addition to flat windows, we can offer this solution in curved forms (conic, spheric or cylindric shape)."
