Shatter proof cabin glass
Experienced dredge masters will agree on that maximum visibility of all devices plays an important role. This goal can be reached with panoramic windows. Usually a dredger cabin is made up with several separated sections. This way windows are safe during transportation and work operations. But such configuration implies some restrictions and limits to a viewing angle. That is why JSC Ural Hydromechanical Plant implemented shatter proof glass made of polymeric materials of new generation. Glass shields made of this material allow to increase a viewing angle up to its maximum with no harm to safety and durability. This glass cannot be broken with any kind of a hammer. It allows to significantly increase the level of safety of a dredge master especially in emergency situations. Besides safety these shields affect thermal isolation. It reduces costs for heating and cooling of a dredger cabin.
