Hull glass

Veralex hull glass is made of laminated glass which has been chemically tempered. Prelco Inc, our Head-company, is the only Canadian company using that kind of technology. This combination offers an increased resistance to outer damages while emphasizing the safety of every occupants.

As the sunroof glass does, the hull glass allows the daylight to pass through the hull, throughout the day. Usually, the forward cabin can be dark and dank, but this light streaming in takes care of that.

Backed with 50 years of experience and knowledge in the marine glazing industry, Veralex developed many unique abilities. Veralex can easily engineer every single of your custom-made glass projects. We will build your hull glass with your unique specifications!

FABRICATION PROCESS

Tempered glass is subjected to a special heat-treating process that locks the surface in a state of compression to help and prevent cracking. Heat treating consists in heating the glass to just below the softening point (620°C / 1200°F) and then cooling it rapidly and uniformly. The mechanical strength and thermal endurance of tempered glass is four (4) to five (5) times higher than annealed glass.
