The Frontal Windshield
The frontal windshield is one of the most common components of the boat made of plexiglass. The need for custom-made products requiring frequent maintenance makes the boat windshield the perfect element to be made of plexiglass.
The life of a plexiglass windshield is infinite. Plexiglass windshields can be honed very easily and look as new again even after scratching or chipping.
According to your needs, the construction of plexiglass windshield allows you to manage and adjust the lights that enter the control zone.
Thanks to the particular colors available, we are able to create a darkening windshield that reduces the brightness inside the boat, ensuring the utmost transparency and visibility. The plexiglass windshield withstands all sorts of open weather exposure, strong winds, temperature inversions and humidity.
Moreover, in order to bring it back to its original splendor, it can be cleaned with a microfiber cloth or a 100% cotton cloth.

The advantages of making some plexiglass interior furnishings are surely represented by the great versatility of this material that can take on many colors and textures; the lightness of the plexiglass objects, unlike glass or other materials, makes it perfect for furnishing the boat without weighing it.
As far as the exterior furniture is concerned, we create tables, chairs, exterior and interior benches. Made of plexiglass these parts are highly durable, ideal for completing your boat with style and elegance.
For example, focusing on the external table, experienced navigators know that, at least once a year, it is necessary to sand or treat the outside table wood, ruined by the bad weather of the sea.
The plexiglass table has the aesthetic effect of wood and, at the same time, it guarantees strong resistance to weather and salt. So a damp cloth is enough to make it good as new again.
A particular advantage of the realization of plexiglass tables and interiors is the particular resistance to bad weather. In the case of scratches or damages, the plexiglass can easily be brought back with a simple polishing.

The sunshade is an essential accessory if you want to enjoy a day out in the sea. The choice of making a plexiglass sunshade is realized by the creation of a rigid, strong structure that provides protection from the bad weather and filters the sun’s rays. This kind of structure will weigh half of a glass structure and ensure excellent performance.
