Concealed frame receives patent
The new Series 16 concealed frame from Seaglaze is hidden behind the glass to give a bonded-glass appearance, whilst maintaining window integrity.
The product is one of a number of enhancements Seaglaze has developed to improve both the aesthetics on board and make installation easier.
“We’ve been developing new frames and installation techniques,” said MD Alastair Clayton. “We received the patent for the frame in January. It’s available as a fixed window that clamps in so its quicker to fit and doesn’t need printing of an inner frame. As a result, its cheaper than the hidden frame.”
The frame has been designed to give support to the inner panel of double-glazed units and the glass is printed with a black border, so no frame is visible from the outside.
The chances of leaks are also reduced as there are no external fixings.
The outer frame is anodised and powder coated in a wide range of colours. The glass can be radiused or made to any shape.
Seaglaze is also working on a number of glass finishes such as anti-condensation glass and light switchable glass.
While both of these are available in the domestic and industrial markets, work is still required for them to be suitable for a marine environment says Alastair.
“We carry out a lot of R&D with Pilkington and what we’re finding is where there is a niche in specialist glass produced for buildings and supermarkets, it hasn’t yet moved into marine,” he said.
“Across the industry there’s new technology that’s there and inherent risks. We need to work out how to introduce it to the marine industry.”
