WGI completes foil application of 120 windows on 'Lauren L'
Wild Group International have recently completed a foil application for privacy and heat control to 120 windows on the 90m superyacht, Lauren L.
Lauren L, launched in 2002 and refit in 2008, had been having some issues with the air-conditioning onboard struggling to keep up. Titan Fleet Management called in WGI Vinyl Finishing Services and asked the team to apply a mirror effect to the inside of the windows to alleviate the problem. The mirror effect was to fit in with the paint scheme and to allow for owners privacy whist on-board their yacht. The project took place in Sardinia, taking six days to complete. The job was done between charters maximising time on the water with minimal disruption.
"The windows look great and the interior temperature has lowered. We are now seriously considering substantial work to the exterior and other yachts within our fleet.”
The technology that WGI employ to create this effect is based on research originally related to US aerospace and military use. The films used by the specialist team are world’s first wavelength selective window coating that provides a virtually transparent protective barrier against the sun's heat and radiation.
The finishing that WGI can achieve with their foils goes way beyond paint, thus bringing new and exciting possibilities to yacht finishing.
