FORMGLAS SPEZIAL® is a compound security glass made out of two or more chemically tempered panes bonded with our special resin. With this resin and our modern manufacturing process we achieve highest optical quality and an outstanding breaking strength, often leading to reduction in the glass thickness.
Thus FORMGLAS SPEZIAL® offers all advantages in one product: it keeps its shape even in case of damage of one or more panes due to its compound and at the same time offers the best optical clarity compared to thermally tempered glass.
FORMGLAS SPEZIAL® is made as both plane and bent glass to the customer's precise requirements. Due to the size of the chemical bath the maximum size of the panes is limited to 2m x 3m.
We can produce the panes either to your templates or 3D models or we take 3D measurements on board. The final glazing is installed by our own certified employees meeting the yacht standard requirements.
We use our own specially developed resin TFG for the adhesive bonding of each ply. Only this resin achieves the quality our customers require.
MICROCLEAR® is a heated glass using FORMGLAS SPEZIAL® with a heating foil. All heated glasses are supplied with the electrical TIMON® 500 series control which guarantees a reliable and optimised heating power control.
MICROCLEAR® heated glasses have between the glass plies two independent temperature sensors which allow an exact failure-free control of the heating power.
MICROCLEAR® can be produced as plane or bent glass to your specification and special installation demands - for an exact specification .
privacy with dimmer function Plane and Bent Glass Panels
SOLARDIM® allows the transparency of a window to be adjusted to the most convenient state. Using the dimmer switch, fingertip control of the atmosphere within your compartment or cabin, is achieved without the need for curtains or blinds. In its opaque mode, the window could also be used as a hi-resolution display screen. Using a projector, you can enjoy the visuals of TV, Video, DVD, PC.
SOLARDIM® uses a magic screen film technology, sandwiched between two layers of FORMGLAS SPEZIAL®.
Standard size of SOLARDIM® Magic Screen Films
Min. 210 x 297 mm, Max. 980 x 2510 mm
Glass Colours and Films Film: standard Colours: Cream Glass Panes: grey, green, bronze, blue - from light to dark
UV Protection: 98 % of harmful UV from sunlight Light transmittance:: ON: 75% +/- 5%, OFF: 20% +/- 0,5 %
Display Screen: Both front and rear sides can be used as hiresolution projection screen. Depending on the installation location, the projection is reflected on both front or rear of the screen. Specifically, the best effect will be obtained in the rear mode.
SOLARDIM® PA-LC Film PA-LC film consists of several kinds of polymers and liquid crystal. PA-LC is applied between two ITO films in the liquid state and is cured to rigid state.
FORMGLAS SPEZIAL® Panels Composed of two or more panes of chemical toughened safety glass (bent or plane).
Principle Function of SOLARDIM® PA-LC films Within the PA-LC film, is a liquid with a high molecular density. Without an electric current, the liquid molecules are orientated randomly and scatter light, so that the surface appears opaque. However when an electric current is applied, the liquid molecules are aligned and, the surface appears transparent. With the dimmer function of our TIMON® 100 system the transition from opaque to transparent can be individually adjusted.
Glass is used more and more in modern architecture. Since many years façades and roofs are made out of glass. But complex glass façade and overhead glazing bear an increased risk of danger due to glass breakage.
Defect glass panes fall down from considerable heights and damage may occur. Glass defects like edge cracks or conchoidal fractures are the cause. If such glass defects are detected in time, the damaged glass panes can be changed before they do any damage.
Damage detection with glass façade and glass roofs
TILSECURE® is a compound security glass with built-in multi functional sensor technology which allows an early detection of any glass damage. The integrated piezo sensors permanently measure the state of the panes. The data is evaluated continuously. Already small glass defects can be detected and are passed over to the connected management utilities or alarm systems.
In addition to the detection of glass defects, the TILSECURE® sensors can measure temperature and light intensity. The data is passed over to the facility management systems in order to regulate the heating and air conditioning systems as well as any sun protection systems. The measurement is made locally for each pane and thus allows to regulate the air conditioning in an optimal way, for example by a controlled opening of any ventilation flaps or a shut down of a jalousie.
TILSECURE® contributes to energy saving and climate protection.
ART COMPOUND® offers you greatly increased scope for interior design. Most interior materials, such as fabric, pictures, wooden surfaces and some metal surfaces often are difficult or impractical to keep spotlessly clean. Art Compound Glass with its brilliant optical clarity allows the use of such materials in new areas within the yacht, where cleaning requirements would not normally allow.
ART COMPOUND® is a compound glass which surrounds and protects decorative materials and at the same time gives stiffness and stability: Drapery, leather or even a picture cannot be normally installed as a partition wall but with ART COMPOUND® this becomes possible.
We have a selection of different materials or patterns, but can work with any that you supply.
ART COMPOUND® is produced plane or bent to customer specification.
The TILSE group have been offering their products for over twenty years to international industry. TILSE has concentrated on marine applications with a special emphasis on the yachting industry and especially super and mega yachts.
The FORMGLAS SPEZIAL® and TIMON® products are our own developments and are designed and produced in Germany.
