“One popular use for automated vertical glass is for room separation, especially on larger luxury and commercial vessels. Not only do they add a touch of class to the space but they are highly functional too.”
For boat owners and builders, having a vessel that is functional and that looks great is important. You want to ensure that your boat can stand up to the challenges of the marine environment while providing you with enough comfort to enjoy your time on the water as much as possible.
There are more opportunities than ever in the marine industry to add stylistic, functional elements to your boat, such as automated vertical glass. Depending on how much space you have available, you may consider installing automated vertical glass solutions to separate rooms, to give you easier access to the deck or to simply to bring yourself closer to the outdoor marine environment you enjoy so much.
How Automated Vertical Glass Can Be Used
There are a huge variety of ways that automated vertical glass can be incorporated into the design of your boat. One popular use for automated vertical glass is for room separation, especially on larger luxury and commercial vessels. Not only do they add a touch of class to the space but they are highly functional too. Automated sliding glass doors can also be installed in larger vessels such as ferries to make access to different areas of the boat easier for passengers, especially for anyone who might need disabled access.
Automation can also be added to existing glass that you may already have installed onboard. On a smaller privately owned boat, you can automate the windows around the cockpit to allow easier access to the deck for you and your passengers. Automating windows in this area of the boat will also allow you to feel the wind and the spray as you make your way through the water, without having to worry about your windows being properly secured.
Installing Automated Glass
Having automated vertical solutions doesn’t need to be a big job. Depending on the specifics of the installation, you can add motors to existing mechanisms or you can opt to install a pre-assembled self-contained unit. These self-contained units can easily be retrofitted so that they work seamlessly with what you already have in place. Simply add power, install the product straight off the shelf and you can start enjoying the automation that will make life easier for you, your passengers and crew.
