AviationGlass & Technology – a Dutch company specialized in the research, development and production of glass products for the aviation industry – has launched two new products: AeroGlass Panel Mirror and AeroGlass Lighting Mirror.
The AeroGlass Panel Mirror is chemically tempered with a composite backing stacked on honeycomb. It is designed to minimize installation time to just minutes as well as to reduce weight by up to 22% compared to polycarbonate/plastic alternatives set on honeycomb. The mirror is mounted on honeycomb and uses Velcro strips instead of glue for installation.
Meanwhile, the company says its AeroGlass Lighting Mirror has a translucent coating, that when combined with lighting components, provides an enhanced reflection quality.
AviationGlass & Technology says both products have passed all required burn and impact tests as well as thermal shock and pencil hardness tests.
“‘Unpack and place!’ Installation of our highly robust, yet lighter than ever, AeroGlass Panel Mirror is as easy as that, taking just minutes to complete and eliminating the need for glue,” said John Rietveldt, CEO at AviationGlass & Technology.
“Upgrading aircraft with AeroGlass mirrors is faster than ever and also supports the aviation industry’s drive to improve eco-efficiency. Great lighting integrated with crystal clear reflections is a powerful combination that can play a big role in enhancing the design of business jets and commercial aircraft, as well as adding to the emotional comfort of passengers. Our new AeroGlass Lighting Mirror uses a unique, innovative technique that delivers a translucent effect enabling light beams to be reflected through the mirror itself.”
