The new glass mounting device in use now

In the course of a project execution the GL Yachtverglasung GmbH has put the largest, automotive glass mounting device into operation.The fitting machine is an inhouse-development, which was formed in cooperation with a specialized mechanical engineering company. It does justice to the constantly increasing claim on the glass fitting in the superyacht sector.

The new glass mounting device can be individually adapted to pane size, weight and local conditions. It enables GL Yachtverglasung to install glass in sizes ranging from 2.5 to 12 metres in length and weighing up to 5.5 tons. The installation positions can be vertical or may be inclined up to 15 degrees. Due to the special design, the minimum track width is 1 metre and can be used in areas that cannot be reached with cranes, such as under deck overhangs. The mobile mounting device itself is demountable and stowed in standard containers. This allows an international use.

Latest development in the fire protection glazing

One of the latest development is the glazing of fire-resistant windows with the highest fire resistance class A60. After extensive testing we can now present our product GLY-MarineCobondFR60®.

Due to the special construction of the glass, a flush-mounted integration neither with visible, mechanical fastenings nor with attachment frames is possible.

After completion of the certification process, GLY-MarineCobondFR60® can be ordered with a width of over 4 metres and a height of 2 metres. With a total thickness of less than 6 centimetres, the fire-resistant glass meets the A60 requirements of the IMO 2010 FTP Code.
