    There is a fundamental distinction between the shipping and architectural markets. A building without glazing retains its integrity, unlike a ship, whereby glazing is a structural element without which its integrity is compromised.

    The sea can prove to be an extremely hostile environment, more so than any other on earth. Acknowledging that, strict adherence to BSMA 25 and ISO standards in the construction of marine glazing is obligatory.

    The VAS “VASILIOU GLASS TECHNOLOGIES” heat treated and heat-treated laminate glazing are offered certified by an internationally recognized classification society fully compliant to BSMA 25, ISO 614, ISO 21005, ISO 11336, ISO 12216 regulations and standards, in addition to following the guidelines of internationally recognized societies for specific requirements able to cover the entire range of marine applications, such as windows, scuttles, doors, interior and exterior balustrades, etc.

    The ISO 614, and consequently, ISO 21005 standards, form the backbone of standards that define durability and strength for marine monolith glass. However, these standards do not apply to marine laminate glazing.

    Manufacturing of marine laminate glazing requires application of specialized techniques, which VAS "VASILIOU GLASS TECHNOLOGIES" offers through a certified product range in the marine glazing market.

    ISO 11336 and ISO 12216 specify the requirements and methodology for the design and testing of marine glazing, following the approach for structural elements established in other disciplines and sectors.

    These requirements relate to the level of pressure exerted on the glazing depending – among others – on the position of its installation and the size of the vessel.

    Pressure test results showed that although it is possible for the laminate glazing to break (under extreme conditions), the system remained watertight under all circumstances.

    Naturally, post breakage resistance to pressure is reduced, however the overall integrity of the laminate glazing allows the time necessary for repairing the damage. This is a crucial difference between laminate glazing and a thermally treated monolith glass.

    VAS "VASILIOU GLASS TECHNOLOGIES", offers its marine glazing portfolio under the VAS-SEC MARINE and VAS-SAFE MARINE brand-names, following the successful completion of a series of tests on the strength of load bearing glazing and having obtained type approval and relevant certification by the internationally recognized classification society Lloyds Register, a member of the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS).

    The accomplishment of obtaining type approval by Lloyds Register, afirms the compliance of the VAS "VASILIOU GLASS TECHNOLOGIES" marine glazing portfolio with international standards and specifications and the effectiveness of the company's manufacturing process and the quality assurance systems it employs.

    VAS “VASILIOU GLASS TECHNOLOGIES” continuous quest for innovation and the creativity of its people led to the development of high performance marine glazing for the demanding markets of shipbuilding and maintenance.

    Methods developed internally and tested in its R&D, allow VAS "VASILIOU GLASS TECHNOLOGIES" to claim the competency and the core advantage of manufacturing marine glazing that exhibits reduced width and weight for given strength and integrity profiles.

    VAS "VASILIOU GLASS TECHNOLOGIES" can certifiably offer impressive weight reductions in the order of 30%, compared to conventional methods of weight measurement.

    Heat treated laminate glazing is approximately 40% thicker than monolith heat treated glazing of equivalent characteristics, according to the following equation:

    ts2 = ti12+ ti22 + ...... + tin2 mm



    where:
    n = number of laminate glass components.
    ti = the width of each individual component of the laminate glass, in mm.
    ts = the width of the monolith glass, in mm.
