Protection for your Boat

Updated: Feb 29

Winter is on its way and for many that means either time to moor up and cover up or time to hit the dry dock for those all-essential repairs needed during the colder months. Many with boats see the winter as an “off-season” where essential maintenance can take place, and this includes considering what to do about your windows.

Boats by their very nature spend the majority of their time in the sun and, if you’re on your boat then it’s usually to enjoy the sunny summer weather that we so enjoy here between March and November. Plenty of sun is great – but it also means plenty of heat, plenty of UV damage and plenty to think about how to counteract this.

Eco Glass is the premier installer of window tint for boats here in Hong Kong having administered 3M Sun Control Window Film to many boats as they sit in their marinas. Many of our clients are concerned about the fading of the interior decking which is normally made of wood and many of our guests are concerned about the glare and the heat that comes from bring out on the ocean.

The solution is simple – just prescribe 3M Sun Control Window Film to your boat’s windows; it couldn’t be easier. The film is applied on the inside and will stop 99.9% of those harmful UFV rays and 99% of those heating infra-red rays. This means your fabrics and decking are protected from fading whilst the film will maintain an ambient temperature to the inside of your boat.

For those of you who live on a houseboat here in the city, 3M Solar Window Film is the answer to a more controlled and pleasant living environment and can arrest those rays that you’d rather have whilst out sunbathing – not while you’re sitting inside.
