Advanced new light mounting method
LIGHTING: British lighting manufacturer BGB SILS has introduced a new light mounting method using electromagnetic induction.
The method is said to revolutionise underwater lighting for yachts, currently owners who want to mount lighting have to go through the hull or get them surface mounted at the expense of water penetration.
James Tupper, sales and marketing director at GBG SILS, said: “All feedback has been 100% positive, from CEOs of major boat manufacturers through to captains, marinas, shipyard owners and even our competitors.”
He continued: “In the early days of development back in 2012/13 we visited Sunseeker to show them an initial concept. The feedback they gave us inspired us to continue development and gave us confidence to continue.”
BGB SILS has developed a new way of installing underwater lights that require no drilling and can offer similar water penetration to some leading thru-hull lighting models.
It operates by having the primary unit on the inside of the yacht, lined up with the secondary union on the exterior of the yacht. Both units positioned in place by marine grade adhesive.
The company is now in the testing stages of development before releasing it to the public.
