Glass Deco Develops First PYC-compliant Glass for the Superyacht Industry

To respond to the increasingly stringent rules regarding fire safety and fuel economy (i.e. weight savings) within the superyacht industry, Glass Deco recently developed a new patented lamination method which meets the new fire requirements as laid down in the Passengers Yacht Code (PYC) & IMO res.

MSC.307 (88) - (2010 FTP Code) Annex 1 Part 5.  

In addition, we deploy various techniques to save weight by making use of ultrathin glass.

This allows direct weight savings of 50% without compromising on strength or appearance.
