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. For instance, Glass Deco can now carry out thermal tempering on two and three millimeter thick glass -something that was previously only possible on glass with a thickness of four millimeters and over-. This allows direct weight savings of 50% without compromising on strength or appearance.
