Brombach + Gess, in collaboration with the glass finisher Hero-Glas, has developed and licensed DUROmare laminated safety glass especially for maritime requirements. Laminated safety glass made from DUROmare can withstand higher pressure loads than a monolithic single pane. As a result, glass thicknesses can be significantly reduces, particularly where high load requirements result in glass thicknesses which are not available as single panes and therefore have to be manufactured as laminated glass.
DUROmare is tested in accordance with the ISO 614 standard directives and is certified by the DNV GL classification company.
This results in beneficial properties for shipyards and shipping companies:
The thickness of the glass and thus the total weight of a glazing unit can be significantly reduced with DUROmare.
Solar-filtering and heat protection requirements as well as sophisticated insulation can be factored into the DUROmare glass.
In the following example, we compare standard insulating glass with solar-filtering and heat protection properties with type 86 DUROmare glass.
