Garibaldi Glass Supplies Big Cat Windows

Monday, April 05, 2004

This projects designer, Crowther Multi Hulls, specified all safety tempered windows aboard the Big Cat Express to be frameless. Due to their quality and experience, Garibaldi Glass Industries, Inc. was chosen to supply these windows. Utilizing a direct glaze technique, Garibaldi Glass applied a perimeter coat of black ceramic frit to the glass. This frit creates an ideal bonding surface and eliminates any UV penetration that may otherwise harm the polyurethane adhesive used to bond the windows to the vessel. Garibaldi's frameless windows eliminate leaks and vibration noise. Vessel operators will never be required to do any of the corrosion maintenance that is required with traditional framed windows.
