Thermal Resistant Marine Glass - Ezone®

Ezone® Marine is a technologically advanced glazing solution to help moderate inbound solar heat gain in a super-yacht or other luxury marine vessel. Perfect for pilot houses or any area on a vessel that experiences excessive exposure to the sun. It is a quality alternative to double glazed units potentially contributing to significant weight, and on-going fuel savings.

 

A pyrolytic process embeds invisible heat-reflective materials to the glass, allowing light to enter, but reflecting much of the inbound heat. It is possible to configure Ezone® Marine to maximize heat retention for vessels in cooler climates.

 

Specifying Ezone® Marine with DuraShield Marine® delivers all the benefits of exceptional thermal performance and the ultimate in strength and clarity. It can be supplied in laminated form that may eliminate the need for storm covers, or monolithic toughened (tempered) form which may require storm covers.

 

Ezone Marine Features & Benefits

  • Decreased solar heat gain, cooler working conditions and improved comfort
  • High levels of visual light transmission
  • Potential to reduce HVAC requirements for a superyacht
  • Alternative to Double Glazed Units (due to dramatic reduction in impact of structural flex on window performance)
  • Reduced overall weight with likely positive effect on fuel consumption for a superyacht
  • Various low-iron & non-reflective glass types available
  • Standard dimensions up to 3900 x 2440mm  (153 1/2″ x 96 1/8″) + oversize capabilities

Anti-Reflective Glass - GlareShield®

Anti-Reflective Glass: Reduce glare for crystal clear vision and added safety

GlareShield® is an anti-reflective double side coated glass that provides improved visual transmission, picture clarity and reduced glare with its very low residual reflection. Traditional glass reflects 8-12% of the incident light. GlareShield®, however, reflects as little as 0.5% of the incident light, allowing up to 99.5% of light to pass through without unwanted reflections or mirror-like effects. It is thus used in structures where low glare is a requirement and crystal-clear quality of glass is key, as in larger west facing facades, retail displays, stadiums, and viewing galleries.

GlareShield® provides a new dimension for glass as it is seemingly invisible with almost no reflectance or colour distortions in transmission. Produced with a durable multi-layered optical thin coating with Magnetron Sputtering Technology which performs like hard coating, it can be tempered, laminated, double-glazed or ceramic printed using VisionInk®. GlareShield® is available on regular float, extra clear and tinted green and grey float glass.

 

GlareShield® Features & Benefits

 

Durability

GlareShield® is produced by Magnetron Sputtering Technology which creates a superior hard coating finish. The multilayered coating of metal oxide does not corrode, is hard wearing and durable. In terms of abrasion resistance, GlareShield® is comparable to regular clear float glass.

 

High VLT

GlareShield® improves transparency and increases light transmission with its high degree of clarity and non-reflective surface.

 

Optical Clarity

GlareShield® reduces glare, mirror-like effects and reflections to minimum. With a reflection of less than 0.5%, the nonreflective properties are optimised for direct viewing of the glass, making it almost invisible.

Bullet Resistant Glass - AmmoShield®

Bullet resistant glass: ultra high grade security laminate for definitive protection from ballistic weapons

AmmoShield® bullet resistant glass encapsulates exceedingly high velocity projectiles without allowing penetration through the armoured panel, making it ideal for use in areas of high risk or where the threat of fire-arms is prevalent.

 

AmmoShield® is a polycomposite-glass laminate, custom-constructed to meet clients' specified protection levels. In addition to the specified protection from ballistics, AmmoShield® provides up to 60 minutes resistance under sustained attack from an intruder with simple hand weapons.

 

AmmoShield® protects the critical operational areas of buildings, houses, marine vessels and land vehicles where precautions against attack are required. AmmoShield® is typically used in embassies, court houses, banks, armoured vehicles, VIP housing, panic rooms. It must be installed in an approved ballistic framing system.

 

NATA accredited testing laboratories have subjected Glasshapes bullet resistant glass to cover all the requirements of AS/NZS2343:1997 and NIJ0108.01:1985. We can test customised glass make-ups to these standards or other applicable standards if required.

 

Most AmmoShield® bullet resistant products are comprised of multi-laminated glass with a poly-composite spall panel on the non-attack side to stop glass fragments from being thrown from the back of the panel in the event of attack. We have also designed all glass AmmoShield® make-ups with an anti-spall film on the non-attack face for situations such as oversize windows or in areas with hot, humid environments where the poly-composite option may not be suitable.

 

AmmoShield Features & Benefits

  • Range of bullet resistant protection levels available
  • Lightweight vs. glass-only products of similar thickness & attack resistance
  • Standard dimensions up to 2400mm (94″) x 1800mm (71″)

Glazing Assurance - NsureGlaze®

Glazing with confidence - take the worry out of installing glass

As part of the Glasshape® experience, you can now enjoy the assurance of worry free glazing by asking for NsureGlaze® to be added to you project. It's simple, it works. For a small charge, you get huge value and guaranteed margin.

 

NsureGlaze® offers you full replacement of glass supplied by Glasshape® should you damage or break it during installation. This means you no longer have to over-inflate your margin to cover your risk when glazing a high value product such as curved glass. If you inadvertently damage or break the glass, Glasshape® will resupply the glass to point of original supply at no cost to you.

 

NsureGlaze® puts the onus on Glasshape®. NsureGlaze® means you can glaze with confidence that your profit is not at risk. It also means you can price projects with a more competitive margin to help you win projects rather than loose them due to excessive margins to cover your perceived risk in glazing.

 

NsureGlaze® is an optional term offered as part of a glass supply contract from Glasshape® and is not an Independent Insurance Cover. NsureGlaze® does not replace your public liability or other insurance covers. NsureGlaze® does however offer you peace of mind and security of your profit.

 

Ask for NsureGlaze® to be added to your project where you can enjoy the unique benefits it offers.
