Integ Marine Glass: How to Choose the Right Glass Solution

integ marine glass - marine glass supplier

Choosing the right marine glass solution for your vessel can be daunting, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the various types and customisation options available. Integ Marine Glass, a leading marine glass supplier, are experts in assisting marine vessel owners in selecting the best marine glass for their specific requirements. Here are some tips to help you make an informed decision:

Consider Your Vessel’s Requirements

Before choosing a marine glass solution, consider your vessel’s requirements. The glass requirements can differ whether you have a superyacht, cruise ship, yacht, or any other type of marine vessel. Regardless of your vessel size, there are a range of areas that require marine glass solutions, including all windows, doors, and hatches. Consider your vessel’s size, shape, and style and assess the protection and functionality you need to determine the best customisation options.

Choose the Right Type of Glass

Once you’ve assessed your vessel’s requirements, you need to choose the right marine glass solution. Consider the level of impact resistance you need, the amount of natural light and ventilation required, and any additional features, such as sound insulation or UV protection. There is a range of specialised marine glass materials including:

Thermal Strengthened

Thermal-strengthened marine glass is specially treated to enhance its strength and resistance to impact and thermal stress. This type of glass undergoes a specific thermal strengthening process in which the glass is heated and then cooled rapidly. This process makes the glass more robust, durable, and capable of withstanding extreme temperature changes commonly encountered in marine environments.

Chemically Toughened

Chemically toughened marine glass is created by subjecting the glass to a chemical process that enhances its strength and durability. Also known as ion exchange, this process involves submerging the glass in a molten potassium salt bath, which replaces the sodium ions in the glass with potassium ions. As a result of this chemical strengthening process, the glass becomes more resistant to impact and thermal stress, making it suitable for marine applications that require robust and durable glass.


Laminated marine glass is layers of glass with an interlayer, typically made of polyvinyl butyral (PVB). The interlayer provides structural integrity, even if the glass shatters, as it holds the broken fragments in place. Laminated glass offers enhanced safety, security, and improved sound insulation and UV protection. These benefits have seen this type of marine glass widely used in marine applications such as bridge windows and hull windows.


Curved marine glass refers to glass that has been shaped or bent into a curved form designed to fit the specific curvature requirements of marine vessels. Curved glass offers aesthetic appeal and improved visibility and can be customised to suit the unique design of the vessel. In marine applications, it is commonly used in windows, doors, spray deflectors, and pool and spa structures.


Fire-resistant marine glass is specially designed to withstand high temperatures and prevent the spread of fire. It is manufactured using advanced fire-resistant materials or treated with fire-resistant coatings. This type of glass plays a crucial role in preventing the spread of flames, helping to protect the marine vessel and its occupants in the event of a fire. Fire-resistant marine glass maintains its structural integrity, prevents the passage of flames and smoke, and provides a barrier against heat transfer.


Ballistic-resistant marine glass is specially engineered to withstand the impact of projectiles and resist penetration from bullets or other ballistic threats. This glass is constructed using multiple layers of glass, polycarbonate, or other specialised materials that absorb and dissipate the energy of project impacts. Ballistic-resistant marine glass is designed for enhanced security and protection, making them excellent in commercial and industrial applications which may face ballistic impact and forced entry security risks.


UV-resistant marine glass solutions are designed to provide a barrier to block or reduce the transmission of harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. Maine windows can be coated or treated with special UV-blocking materials, including laminates and films, to protect the vessel and its passengers’ interior from UV radiation. UV-resistant glass helps prevent fading, deterioration, and damage to interior furnishings while providing occupants with a more comfortable and safer environment onboard.


Specialty boat mirrors are specifically designed for marine environments, offering durability and functionality. Made from corrosion-resistant materials like stainless steel and strengthened glass, they are capable of withstanding water, moisture, and vibrations. Marine mirrors can come with anti-fog and specialty coatings for optimal visibility and durability. Mirrors can be installed on the exterior for visual awareness in docking or interior for use in bathrooms and wardrobes.

Customise Your Solution

A customised glass solution is critical for those seeking a marine glass material that perfectly meets their needs and preferences. Custom-made solutions are manufactured to exact specifications, ensuring a perfect fit and functionality for any vessel. Evaluating and discussing your desired performance and visual qualities with an experienced marine glass supplier will help ensure your marine windows enhance your vessel’s overall performance and appearance.
